Quote of the Day


"If you dive into the weeds a little bit on this global warming thing, you see that it seems that facts are certainly on Huntsman’s side on all of this and fact checkers have come out, we’re actually having our own brain room look at this right now, that any of Perry’s comments don’t seem to hold a lot of water. It doesn’t matter. What’s resonating right now in South Carolina is helping Governor Perry tremendously and he fired back at Huntsman on global warming and it's gaining traction, facts or not."

-- Clayton Morris of Fox News

I have no idea what's most startling: that Fox News basically admitted that man-made global warming isn't a lie, that it admitted that that doesn't matter one bit because reality isn't at all important to Republican voters, or that the network has a "brain room."

The Fox Brain Room is where they keep the receptacles of the Triskelions that wager on hand to hand combat battles between their show hosts and anchors during off-air time.

"I wager Three Hundred Thousand Quaatluus on the human that calls itself Doocy!"

Of course Fox News has a brain room; all their on-air talent has to deposit theirs in the room before they can broadcast.

"Stop that! You can't think in the Brain Room!"

Chez-
Is there a rehearsal or run through for pundits? I'm watching Al Sharpton at the moment and I have a hard time figuring out how he prepares, or IF he prepares. Is the broadcast the first time talking heads see the teleprompter? Obviously Fox employs mostly talking point robots, but what about everyone else?

I'm surprised to learn that there are any brains at all used in the production of Faux News.

The brain room is where they keep the one brain everyone on Fox shares.

HEY! Don't make fun of the janitor's closet like that! Somebody has to clean up.

Makes you wonder if Glenn Beck had to return Abby Normal's cerebrum to the Brain Room when he checked out of Fox.

Most startling: Definitely that they have a "brain room".
