Bizarro World on Fox News
Me and the Missus spent a little time Tuesday night watching Fox News for the first time in a loooong time just to see how they were reacting to our/their new President. Unlike the funeral-like demeanor of their election night coverage, the Fox anchors and reporters seemed giddy with excitement, covering every inaugural ball with what I'd have to call Obama-love. There were the usual idiotic comments like Geraldo Rivera saying "You'd be surprised at how much the military supports Obama" after watching the military go head over heels for their new commander in chief and Megyn Kelly claiming that most of our soldiers overseas don't want to come home (qualifying her comment by saying they want to finish the mission). But even Bill O'Reilly didn't seem to buy her propaganda:
Most importantly, the night gave voice to people who normally wouldn't be able to freely express their (liberal) opinions without someone telling them to shut up. For example, check out this little interview with actress Dana Delany:
And, it looks like Dana got her wish:
President Obama will issue an executive order on Thursday reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-govermental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States.Fox News viewers' heads must be exploding.
Obama will sign the executive order on the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
