The NPR piece on Shepard Smith was fairly good. I feel sorry for those Fox haters. Comment from Fox hater on my blog (going right to spam) in 3, 2...

If KO makes special commdents every night, how is one to grade which ones are more special than the others? Hmmmmm, sounds very unspecial to me, kind of like the eveready bunny on crack.

Just a tip for a possible link today. It may inflame your mostly conservative readers however, so you may not want to link to it.

I put that link up hours ago ("Fox vs Fox"). Try reading the posts first before you link stuff in the comments.
By the way, the day is 2/3 over and nobody's been inflamed yet. Sorry to disappoint.

correction to my earlier post - should have read special comments and it's the energizer bunny droning on and on of course.

I looked over the links before commenting. Obviously I missed that one. Just hoping to have a little fun at your expense. The egg is on me !

Well, tomorrow is another day. Thanks for contributing though, even if it was a bit wrong-headed!

Don't these sorts of preconceptions from political grudge holders just wear you out?
You almost want them to hand you their little prepared script so you can do the little dance they've devised for you and then move on to YOUR day...

I didn't like the "Family Guy" dig at McCain-Palin, but I wasn't surprised by it. Nothing from Seth MacFarlane and Co. surprises me anymore. I'm still a regular "Family Guy"/"American Dad!" viewer, taking it week by week.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker of South Park hates Seth MacFarlane and Family Guy with a passion. South Park is funnier and its brilliantly written. Just watch South Park's the "Cartoon Wars". Family Guy is for people who reads the Daily Kos...

Family Guy is fsking lame compared to South Park. I thought the McCain/Palin dig on FG was funny, but I'm OK with laughing at stupid stereotypes.

I used to watch "South Park," but stopped two years ago next month. Maybe I should try them again?

Nice piece on Campbell Brown by TCG. I just hope that she doesn't start attacking FNC and their personalities, calling them scores of disparaging names (Fox Noise, [BOR's name without the 'Reilly part], etc.)
