A Hen in the Fox House


Today's column for the Daily Banter looks at the latest Sally Kohn column for Fox News's website -- and the completely predictable reaction to it.

Here's the opening shot:

"Today I’m doing you the favor of reading Fox News’s website so you don’t have to. Feel free to forgo any thanks in favor of donations to my PayPal account which will immediately go toward my medical care. Now keep in mind, I’m talking about the actual Fox News site, not Fox Nation — the one comically billed as the specialized 'opinion' face of Fox — so of course you can expect that since Fox News is the “fair and balanced” network there will be less Alex Jonesian lunatic ranting, fewer hysterical cries about the dangers of Sharia Law and creeping socialism, and a more even-handed and civil discussion of the events of the day, minus demands for anyone not to the right of G. Gordon Liddy to kindly pack up his or her things and move to Cuba, right? Sure thing."

Chez-

Thank your for you public service.

I imagine many Republicans who live in the bubble as the victims of Thulsa Doom's hypnotic power. They preach of and praise emptiness while worshipping snakes. I hope someday someone will wake them up. If it actually involves chopping off someone's head...well, to make an omlet, you have to break eggs.

Many people have stopped thinking; all they do is emote. And of course, get angry.

Sad, really sad.

Democracy's in a shithole.

Impossible to explain how historically low taxes are under Bush & Obama, and how fast government has slowed spending and dropped payroll under Obama to those who only digest right wing news.
