I rarely tune into Fox and Friends in the morning. But Mica B on MSNBC chases me away because she is so irritating. And CNN talks to their audience as if they were in seventh grade. The Fox crowd at least provides entertainment. Like the cryon across the bottom of the screen this morning while The Gretchen was almost yelling at Sen. Schumer about the Medicare bribe in the Senate health care bill. (She was really enjoying herself!).
The cryon? Here’s what it said:
OBAMA WHITE HOUSE PLOTTING FOR 2012
None of that planning stuff for them. Planning is for pussies.
(We know there aren’t any pussies in Afghanistan though, there are only real men and woman – often boys and girls – there, and they still fighting on the 138th day of the ninth year of the War.)
UPDATE: Fox is not alone in their choice of verbs. Our friends at Politico are also using it – wonder who was first? Their headline is:
WH privately plots 2012 campaign. They also tell us it’s an EXCLUSIVE!
Here’s how they open: President Barack Obama’s top advisers are quietly laying the groundwork for the 2012 reelection campaign . .
Somebody really needs to do something about this outrage.
