The Mitt Romney Channel otherwise known as Fox News has a new excuse to denigrate Obama's killing of Osama Bin Laden: accusing him of politicizing a national security event. It's infuriating to hear Fox News complain about anyone else politicizing anything but one big comfort is how Stephen Colbert (also Jon Stewart) can perfectly nail it, cut it down to size and make us laugh, all at the same time.
In this case, Colbert caught six different Fox News talking heads who just happened to use the same phrasing (including at least one supposedly objective host) - that President Obama had "spiked the football."
I'd say that Colbert took control of the game and scored a touchdown after that.
They can relax, memories are short and this will soon be forgotten since the new unemployment numbers will be released on Friday morning and will dominate the news, which the R’s will be rooting for negitive numbers so they can be positive.
It’s similar to Cal Thomas on Hannity trying to get on a moral high horse to be shocked, shocked that Obama would mention the Secret Service scandal during the Correspondents Dinner because “this is disrespectful to the men. These men have wives and families and it isn’t funny to them.” Guess that means he was equally shocked by GW Bush joking at a Correspondents Dinner about his search for WMDs while troops were dying in Iraq.
