Cheney Says Leaking His Secret Spy Legacy is Treason

Cheney Says Leaking His Secret Spy Legacy is Treason

Former Vice President, millionaire government contractor,  Satan spawn, and G.W. Bush puppet master Dick Cheney is the father of  U.S. telecom data-mining and warrantless wiretapping. He defended his secret surveillance legacy on Fox New Sunday:

“Well, I understand people’s concern about it, but an intelligence program that does reveal sources and methods, which in fact is what you’re talking about, is significantly less effective because you’re not just revealing it to the American people, you’re revealing it to your targets, to your adversaries, to the enemy.”


Sarah Palin: Fox News Rerun

Sarah Palin: Fox News Rerun
Sarah Palin, former Miss Wasilla and once part-time Temp-Governor of Alaska, will return to Fox News, where she previously impersonated a political commentator with the same authority she brought to the losing 2008 GOP presidential campaign. Six months ago Fox News ended their three-year relationship with Mrs. Palin. That’s a year longer than she lasted as Alaska’s governor. She was brought back by Fox News Chaiman Roger Ailes (who has called her stupid) as a stunt to counter competition from CNN, and probably for less money than before. She’ll contribute to morning gabfest Fox & Friends.


Palin Kicked Off Fox News

Palin Kicked Off Fox News

Sarah Palin, former part-time Temp-Governor of Alaska, has ended her relationship with Fox News. Mrs. Palin impersonated a political commentator on the cable news outlet with the same authority she brought to the 2008 GOP presidential campaign, and Fox was tired of looking like John McCain.

Sarah Palin was on Fox for three years, a year longer than she was Alaska’s governor, but may draw on her other past experience in future endeavors. The former Miss Wasilla would be a great spokesmodel for products like Naughty Monkey high-heeled shoes or Bushmaster assault rifles. And Mrs. P, who now has a home studio, was once was a sportscaster on an Anchorage TV station. Here’s an aircheck we’re submitting to ESPN:


‘Math You Do As A Republican To Make Yourself Feel Better’

November 11, 2012

Carl Rove argued with Fox News number-crunchers on election night when they declared President Obama the victor, so snippy Megyn Kelly asked Carl a question about his own numbers:

“Is that math you do as a Republican to make yourself feel better, or is it real?”

Now it’s time to ask the same question about the Ryan Budget. The GOP tried to solve problems with trickle-down math before, most recently under our MBA President, George W. Bush. That  Republican Math added up to The Great Recession, and America can’t recover from it with more Republican Math.

The nonpartisan Congressional Research Service recently reviewed 65 years worth of Republican Math and found that “Supply Side” trickle-down didn’t work. Carl Rove didn’t argue with the facts then; Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans did. They tried to suppress the CRS study but you can read it here.

Economist Ben Stein: Taxes on the Rich Are Too Low

October 26, 2012

Conservative economist Ben Stein told panelists on “Fox & Friends” that the government doesn’t just have a spending problem, it also has a “too low taxes problem.”

“I hate to say this on Fox – I hope I’ll be allowed to leave here alive – but I don’t think there is any way we can cut spending enough to make a meaningful difference, we’re going to have to raise taxes on very, very rich people. People with incomes of, say, $2, $3, $4 million a year and up. And then slowly, slowly, slowly move it down. $250,000 a year, that’s not a rich person.”

“With all due respect to Fox, who I love like brothers and sisters, taxes are too low,” he added.

EPA Drones Spy on American Farmers! Not.

June 18, 2012

EPA Drones Spy on American Farmers! Not.

The Environmental Protection Agency is using killer drone aircraft to spy on innocent farmers in America’s Heartland, according to the Daily Caller, Fox News, and Tea Party congressmen. “Send In The Drones: Obama Spies On America” screamed an Investor’s Business Daily editorial.

Just one thing. It isn’t true.


Fox News Fights Commie Muppets

Fox News Fights Commie Muppets

"Lousy Commie Elmo Had It Coming!"

“It ain’t easy being green, but according to Fox Business, Kermit the Frog and his Muppet friends are reds.

Last week, on the network’s ‘Follow the Money’ program, host Eric Bolling went McCarthy on the new, Disney-released film, ‘The Muppets,’ insisting that its storyline featuring an evil oil baron made it the latest example of Hollywood’s so-called liberal agenda.

Bolling, who took issue with the baron’s name, Tex Richman, was joined by Dan Gainor of the conservative Media Research Center, who was uninhibited with his criticism.

 ‘It’s amazing how far the left will go just to manipulate your kids, to convince them, give the anti-corporate message,’ he said.”

Sarah Palin Leaves 2012 Race; Now a Full-Time Fictional`Character

Former Alaska Temp-Governor Sarah Palin disappointed Tea Party stalwarts by declining to enter the race for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination. She made the announcement on CNN Fox News Twitter  mighty Cumulus Media Radio. After talking it over with God, Mrs. Palin explained to host Mark Levin, she’s decided to remain on the $100,000-a-pop personal appearance circuit, hawking her book-like objects.

Sarah Palin has always been more of a celebrity than an actual public figure, a creation of marketing image-makers. Now that she’s out of the presidential race, she’s become a full-time fictional character in the novel It’s Classified, written by former Palin media advisor Nicolle Wallace.
