Another example of the Queen Hound whing about what appears on Fox.
While Howling About Letterman And Palin, Hannity Ignores Comparison Of Michelle Obama To A Gorilla
Reported by Ellen - Wed 3:20 AM
"BWAAAAA!!!" "Fox doesn't opine about what I think they should. BAd Hannity. Bad Fox"
Miss Ellen, let me help you out here. The Letterman/Palin issue has NOTHING to do with race. And before you get your thong all twisted, it also has NOTHING to do with a double standard.
Of course we know what it is all about. You and you myrmidons have an agenda against Fox News. That would make most of what you say irrelevant.

Gosh - I didn't realize that it was required to mix-in the topic of stupid insults made against the first lady into a unrelated conversation about Letterman and Palin.
Perhaps the hounds would want to see Keith Olbermann mention the rising cost of gasoline when he discusses the latest with ObamaCare.

I'm so relieved to know that David Shuster has learned that Sen. Lieberman's positions have "evolved" since the days when he supported John McCain's campaign for the presidency.
Why, Joe Liebermann has since been invited to come on Shuster's show and make nice-nice!
Seems all it took for Shuster's attitude towards the senator to evolve is some updating on what the 'newsman' should have known in the first place.
But what the hey... all's right with the world now...
