    This. I thought I said that already. It's like taking one of my quotes from here about fingerbanging Sarah Palin and making it a news story. It's not relevant to anything policy wise. Like I said. Silly.

    What the hell are you guys talking about.

    This is from Red Eye, a late night comedy show on Fox News.

    They are trying to be funny, not serious. Also, part of the show involves making ridiculous statements in order to make MediaMatters/ThinkProgress etc go into a tizzy about "Faux News" and not realize that the joke is on them.

    He explains himself a bit here



    I haven't seen him on tv in years, but he never came across as some fire breathing, partisan bomb thrower. Agree or disagree with him on any given issue, he's always seemed to me like on of the more reasonable of the news channel talking heads.

    playing a devils advocate, perhaps the bow-tie boy meant Iran's regime, not Iran the country. That would make more sense.

    Default Sounds hip to you but uninformed to me.

    Fox leads the ratings game. There's no reason to stoop to MSNBC levels of lunacy to grab attention. Thanks for trying, though. C+ for effort.

    Tucker used to be on a political show with Paul Begala and James Carville called crossfire...I used to watch it during lunch during the summer way back in the day when I was way more interested in politics.

    I'd love to see that. John Stewart may be funny but he's just as biased.
