This is how News Hounds would operate if Turley was working for Fox News.

Ailes should send Prejean to Weekend F&F as an occasional guest host.
 
God knows THAT show needs help!

I suppose Mr. Olson's complicity in subjecting the country to 8 years of Bush/Cheney Co. is all forgiven now!
 
I also suppose Olson's consistency on the application of due process and equal protection was not liked so much by ideologues, like Shuster, in Bush v. Gore, as it is now with regards to California's Supreme Court threading the needle yesterday!
 
Fair-weather friends. It's time for google searches on what lefties like Shuster have said about Olson in the past.
 
Ted Olson is (and was in 2000) a great American.

Johnny,
 
I'm so disappointed that the story about extraterrestrials sacrificing themselves to save earth, is just a hoax.
 
The story sounds so appropriate for the current time. It sounds so much like what a wonderful progressive Democrat would do in such a situation.  
 
Too bad it's all a fake. I could see future NYT pieces on how a Pres. Obama or perhaps an experienced Latina would make precisely the same altruistic move.
 
Bummer...

Huffington Post? Shuster's Twitter? B-b-b-but I thought you only linked to right wings websites, johnny!
 
The comments at HuffPo are pretty funny since the article is about FNC being cable's #4 rated channel. It's either sobbing, complaining about how stupid Americans are, or "trolls" who think FNC is a good channel.

Anyone?
