Fair and Balanced

Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and other nutjob rightwing media blowhards are pretending to be scared about a renewal of the Fairness Doctrine, a long gone FCC policy that required broadcast medium to present public issues in as balanced a format as possible. You is smart kids - you can see why they would be terrified in truth if there were any truth to this idea. But there is not. It's a white whale they've invented to rally their sagging troops, their die-hard base. Obama has stated publicly that he has no intent to do so. So have Pelosi, etc. (Though one must remember that in freeper territory, everything that Obama and Pelosi say are lies. Everything. If Obama says: "My name is Barack Obama and I'm the President of the United States" - he is lying!)

In fact, just the other day I got an hilarious e-mail from Human Events, right-wing supply house and odd-jobber, about the conspiracy within the Obama administration to not only re-enact the Fairness Doctrine (gone for more than 20 years) but to secretly and/or forcibly enlist all of the liberal media (which is everything but the ever-heroic Limbaugh and Coulter and gang) as a vast propaganda arm of government, a scary lefty Ministry of Truth in all but name.

It is freakin' hilarious, really. Especially when you watch something like this:

And you have to ask yourself: Which hack at the RNC wrote the script for the Fox Anchor? He literally puts the words in Steele's mouth, requiring him only to nod, grunt, or blink twice fast in assent.

Again, it's freakin' hilarious.

Or, maybe, it's so sad that you can't help but look longingly at your collection of antique poison jars and wonder if maybe, just maybe, you know, way down at the bottom of one...just a little is all I won't hurt much, right?

Naw! Just kidding. Because it's really just too funny watching the Republican Party fall apart, kicking and screaming and biting and gouging itself. They are so totally jindalled!
