Who’s that FOX?

Ever wonder how FOX News host Megyn Kelly, the highest paid news anchor on television (if you’re comparing dollars earned per syllables spoken), manages to provide such insightful commentary?  Clearly, it’s the endless hours of preparation.

For example, even while the crowd around her loudly cheered Sen. Joe Biden following his vice presidential acceptance speech, Kelly never lost her focus or concentration.  What a dedicated professional.

    I udnerstand she is an attorney! Wow .. next time OJ and I kill someone, we ant Megyn to defend us as long as the jury s young, male and virile!

    Of course, she may have been chosen because she was head of the law review at Stanford!

    Personally, I think that Britney Spears should take Katie Couric’s job.

    Who’s pissed when we have C-SPAN?

    In other, more generic “Republican” news-fixing news: Not wanting to be entirely left-out of the future of our nation, the “Republicans” flocked to Denver, hoping against Hope to score a date with Megyn Kelly.

    And what is their rallying cry? Why, it’s none other than a summary of their mental and sexual prowess: A Mile High, An Inch Deep

    DENVER (AP) — The Republican “war room” in Denver is not easy to find, tucked away off an alley a mile or so from the convention hall.

    There’s a satellite truck in the parking lot. Inside, posters with the GOP’s convention tag line — “A Mile High, an Inch Deep” — plaster the walls. There’s not a gray hair to be found among the more than two dozen party operatives. But there are pizza boxes, lots of water and the occasional can of beer.

    Nothing beats that fly-by-night just-woke-up hangover approach to countering the competition… or hitting on Megyn.

    Attack dog Biden? This is an attack? John McCain is a good man, we honor his service, he is just wrong on a few issues. Fuck and Shit!

    Watch the Republican convention folks. And see how to win elections. Watch the Republicans strip the fucking bark off right off Obama, his wife, and his fucking kids!

    As much as I loathe the Republicans I have respect for them. So big deal that the Dems agree with me on a lot of issues. The spineless bastards won’t fight to get elected and won’t fight to implement their stated policies. The only reason the Republicans are in trouble now is because of a two term Presidency that is arguably the worst in history. And yet, befuddled McCain may very well be our next President. Absolutely fucking amazing!

    Faux News shows it’s bias. They won’t even bother to show the speech, and let the people decide.

    Fox News aired two minutes of Democratic keynote address, discussed Ayers instead
    On August 26, Fox News aired just over two minutes of former Virginia Gov. Mark Warner’s keynote address to the convention. After returning from a commercial, Alan Colmes stated, “In other election news, an independent group supporting John McCain released an ad last week attacking [Sen.] Barack Obama’s ties to former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers,” and aired an ad from the Obama campaign responding to the independent ad. Colmes and Sean Hannity then interviewed Rudy Giuliani.

    (SJN Minneapolis, 4 Sept. 08)

    In the surprise of the century, John McCain accepted the nomination fo the Republican Party and simultaneously announced that he would, if elcted, join Joe Lieberman, his Vice President, as an Independent. In words likely to echo for centuries, he told the stunned audience:

    “I know some of you do not want Jo and I to be elected. Others here tonight as honored figures ion the Republican Party,. have told me that some in the Congress will not support our legislative agenda. Let me declare now for all to hear, that once I am President, I will govern for all Americans .. for Democrats and Republicans, for the great majority, the people I call my friends.

    My friends, we who believe in the ultimate good of this country, we are the majority. In this ticket of a life long Republican and a life long Democrat, we offer a new direction that is free of partisan rancor. We offer all Americans the chance to vote for us, for two friends who care more about the country than about partisan politics.

    We resolve, if elected, to seperate myself clearly from the leadership of either party. That soes not mean I will nto remain loyal to the Republican ideals and Joe to his treasured Democratic ideals, but that our administration wikll call on members of both parties to jopin with us in a grand coalition devoted toward shared ideals.

    My friends, the idea of government that is beyond party lines is not new. President Washington bemoaned the very appearance of partisanship and .. after the Civil War, Lincoln tried mightily to put the Union beyond the blood stains of war and self serving rancor of party politics.

    Now, in the 21st century, it is tme for the American Presidency to return to the intent of the very first President. Friends, I call opn all of you to join with the Republican party in moving beyond partisan limits. May God bless Jo, myself, our opponents and all the American people!”

    Blue John spews:

    The platform also has a more hard line stance than John McCain when it comes to the controversial issues of abortion and gay marriage. The platform calls for constitutional bans on both issues something John McCain is against– more clear divisions between the Party platform and the candidate.

    Not a Big difference if you actually read his website.

    John McCain believes Roe v. Wade is a flawed decision that must be overturned, and as president he will nominate judges who understand that courts should not be in the business of legislating from the bench.
    Constitutional balance would be restored by the reversal of Roe v. Wade, returning the abortion question to the individual states. The difficult issue of abortion should not be decided by judicial fiat.

    As president, John McCain would nominate judges who understand that the role of the Court is not to subvert the rights of the people by legislating from the bench. Critical to Constitutional balance is ensuring that, where state and local governments do act to preserve the traditional family, the Courts must not overstep their authority and thwart the Constitutional right of the people to decide this question.

    So the “Maverick” is a matter of degrees. If the platform committee was a 10, he’s a 9.5. Big deal. john “Noun, Verb, ‘I was a POW'” mccain is a lock step conservative, the only difference is he won’t commit to supporting a constitutional amendment.

    “Fair weather for Obama tonight. Too bad about the hurricane that will slam the Gulf next week, reminding America of the Republican’s second largest disasterous homeland failure and, sadly, disrupting the news cycle during their convention. The first and largest Republican disasterous failure, of course, was when, in 2001, they utterly failed to respond to the threat of Al Quada attacking America here at home. We all saw what came of that. Regarding the weather, it must really suck for Republicans to realize that even God is against them now. Geez, I can’t help but wonder if the Rev. Pat Robertson will connect the dots and grasp the meaning behind God’s wrath.”

    For anyone who is interested in truth – i.e., republicans need not read this, Rasmussen is a republican pollster. Legitimate polls show President Obama with a 6-8 point lead.

    @31 ByeByeGOP: …And don’t forget that the McCain camp shot its festering smear campaign wad early. The gullible idiot vote that it targeted brought Obama down to just ahead of McCain in the popular vote and still well ahead in the electoral vote–the effect of which is wearing-off.

    WINGNUTS LOSE AGAIN!!!

    A partial examination of the documents did not reveal anything startling about the link between Obama, the Democratic presidential contender, and Ayers,…

    The interest in the documents comes as supporters of Republican presidential candidate John McCain have questioned Obama’s ties to Ayers. The Obama campaign this week countered by airing television commercials suggesting that McCain is stuck in the ’60s.

    Heh. Yeaah! Noun, Verb, POW!!

    @34 YLB: Oh hell, that was obvious from the get go. The only thing that the Univ of Chicago Annenberg Challenge records could possibly reveal would be if someone was on the payroll who shouldn’t have been. The rest–any mystery about Ayers, who, as part of the Univ. of Chicago Annenberg Challenge, worked with the Mayor of Chicago himself on the now famous reform of Chicago schools–has always been a matter of public record and published (by Obama himself) information.

    This was nothing more than a sideshow/misdirection from the beginning. Made-for-Media

    Same as Corsi’s claim that McCain is tied to the Russian mafia.

    Neither of these charges were even politically-motivated. Both were merely Corsi doing a good job of selling books. The only hook was that The National Review took the bait on one of the claims–thus increasing sales of that rag as well.

    My guess is either she is looking at her reflection in a telepromter which is turned off, or more likely, looking at a monitor which shows how she would appear while on the air, and making adjustments accordingly.

    Of course, it just goes to show the lack of “journalism” on Fox News. News anchors used to have to come up the ranks as reporters, digging out the story. She obviously just reads the script. After this gig, she hopes to make the jump to “Access Hollywood”. Since the head of Fox News is a Republican media hack from way back, we know who’s writing that script, and it’s content is pretty predictable.

    I’m looking forward to election night in November, as Fox News abandons it’s U.S. map showing Red/Blue states (which is rapidly turning blue), and instead goes straight to the “pundits”, who try to explain how Obama’s victory isn’t really a “victory”, because although he won the election, he didn’t meet “expectations”:

    (Pearing into the not-to-distant future)

    FOX NEWS PUNDIT:
    “Yes, Margaret, Obama can hardly call his 68% popular vote count a “mandate”. At best, it just shows how confused the voters were, and perhaps some of his support is, sadly, racially based. We will have to wait at least four years before we can cast a final judgement on whether Obama did, in fact, “win” this election.”

    With Fox News, you can write their story before the events actually occur. That’s becuase they do, in fact, write their story in advance of any event occuring, and regardless of the actual facts.

    Well, not exactly. The difference is that while the talentless socialist “Republican” Politburo trust-fund kids wanted to do it in 2004, they gave-up without even trying (No big surprise there!). Whereas the Democrats know they can pull it off (c.f. “Yes, we can!”).

    …which is exactly what they’re doing as I write.

    In 2004, President George W. Bush came close to accepting his party’s nomination at Yankee Stadium, but Republicans eventually nixed the idea, fearing it would be near impossible to pull off a stadium event.
