    I didn't remember hearing about it back in 2007, apparently when Rush Limbaugh of all people had it made.

    Obligatory double facepalm.

    "We" would be wise to think carefully before the use of the inclusive "we" in this case. ;)

    I predict a snow ball effect in 10 posts or less, unless a mod comes along.

    Aww, nuts, this my cue to be civil. :eek:

    I guess I viewed this news as more comedic than anything else... I mean, if we had a political comedy sub-forum peopled by Bushisms, bipolar politician antics, Tom Cruise stories, and Ahmadinejad interviews, I would have posted it there. :eek:

    The quickly failed Fox News's Half Hour News Hour is another fantastic example of conservative humour.

    Liberal media bias!

    My first question is, what is Mike Steele's reaction. CNN and The Hill haven't made an attempt to reach him, apparently. My guess is he's covering his face, too.

    Any time I call my wingnut dittohead friend on something Rush says that is completely over the top, he immediately tells me that I just don't understand Rush's sense of humor, that he's actually just joking. Just another example of the amazing double standard we currently live with :mad:

    You know, I had never heard of the show (I don't watch TV surreptitiously... so I miss a lot of short-lived things because they never enter my Tivosphere :eek: ).... when I played one of those links, I got confused because I figured it must be a parody by MadTV or SNL of Fox News, but I didn't see a logo for one of them anywhere in the clip. :confused:

    Double whammy.

    When will all the other media companies start running this story? Or do you think they won't run it this close to christmas, or is this now becoming every day news about the conservatives :p

    This was in 2007? Back then, weren't there some comments about his being "not black enough"? And wasn't one of the questioners Sen. Joe Biden? I do recall some Biden comments about Obama which were rather arrogant, of the "damning with faint praise" style.

    Just curious...
