Fox's John Gibson Doesn't Fact Check

MyDD pulls the choice quote from Fox dude John Gibson:

The bombings in London: This is why I thought the Brits should let the French have the Olympics -- let somebody else be worried about guys with backpack bombs for a while.
Uh, John? The backpack Olympic bomber type? That was Eric Rudolph: white guy, so-called 'christian', homophobe, super-dick.

Fox "news" one super-sensitive jagoff after another.

Brit Hume

Not to be out done by his 'colleague' Brian Kilmeade at FOX, Brit Hume proves himself to be at least a practical sicko/ghoul/heartless bastard:

HUME: Well, maybe. The other thing is, of course, people have -- you know, the market was down. It was down yesterday, and you know, you may have had some bargain-hunting going on. I mean, my first thought when I heard -- just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, "Hmmm, time to buy." Others may have thought that as well. But you never know about the markets. But obviously, if the markets had behaved badly, that would obviously add to people's sense of alarm about it.
You know what 'Brit'? When this kind of stuff happens we honestly could care less what the bloody 'markets' are doing: we're more interested in the people who were hurt & killed (just call us 'liberal' that way).

So let's hear it for Brit Hume: a complete wanker!

PS. Gotta love Bush talking about bringing folks to justice, I am sure that if Britain had his leadership they would have the bastards behind this doing the perp walk in no time just like when we paraded Osama Bin Laden out of a jail in Manhattan. Damn, that was a proud day for the U.S.



Media Matters via Atrios we find out that Fox News' Brian Kilmeade thinks the London terror attack "works to ... Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together"

Read the whole thing for yourself, but we have no doubt that there a lot of Republicans who are thinking that this whole thing plays to their advantage... and they're wrong. And they're sick. It works to obscure the fact that this administration outs undercover operatives for political revenge, they lie to take us to war, they want to control when you're born, who you love and when you die, and they constantly screw the middle class for the sake of the wealthy. Oh, we have no doubt they think this works to their advantage.

By the way, at the opposite we have DAC Brian Paddick who, even in the middle of this tradgedy, pointed out said that anyone who is a terrorist is a Muslim, since attacking innocent people is counter to the very beliefs of Islam. Good for him (thanks AmericaBlog!)... unlike some bastards.

By the by? We're going to London the first chance we get because "If you're tired of London, you're tired of life"


2 Income Family? You're Hurting America!

That is according to Rick "Frothy" Santorum (R-PA) as we see in excerpts from his new book via CapitolBuzz:

"In far too many families with young children, both parents are working, when, if they really took an honest look at the budget, they might confess that both of them really don't need to, or at least may not need to work as much as they do... And for some parents, the purported need to provide things for their children simply provides a convenient rationalization for pursuing a gratifying career outside the home." (It Takes a Family, 94)
Yes, you're just not looking at your budget honestly enough you greedy, greedy little common folk! There's no reason for you to have a car, a home or send your kids to college if it means mom has a job outside the home. Don't you see how these things hurt America? Now if you were just lucky enough to marry a rich girl, you would be fine and would see how unnecessary it would be for her to work. Or you for that matter. Instead you could just obsess about the sex lives of everyone else.

As they say in Western Pennsylvania: what a jagoff. Look out Ricky, the common folk are coming for you soon...
