You Say Potato, I Say Terrorist

The Republicans and their goons in the “liberal” media don’t even bother to pretend like they have standards or ethics or even a passing interest in facts anymore. This time, Fox News and Fox’s slightly literate half-brother the New York Post ran with a story about Senator Obama being in some wacky Islamic madrassa when he was a kid.

Problem? It took CNN like two seconds to figure out it was bullshit.

But see, that doesn’t matter. Fox and the Post, not being journalistic entities, but in fact paid propagandists for the Bush Administration don’t care what’s not true. They just want the impression of something. They don’t need to demonstrate facts to their redneck, mouth-breathing audience. They just need to float ideas out there for a while and let the fucktards run with their own ignorance. Fucktards like this:

One Fox News caller questioned whether Obama’s schooling means that “maybe he doesn’t consider terrorists the enemy.” Fox anchor Brian Kilmeade responded, “Well, we’ll see about that.”
Christ, this is going to be a long two years. But hey! The penultimate Bush SOTU tonight! Think about it…
