FOX'D

This fun little clip is making the rounds (thanks, jtron). To me, the fascinating thing isn't that the Fox anchor loses her shit at the mere suggestion that the President's inauguration was a tad elaborate under the circumstances; after all, being apologists for the Republican Party is the whole raison d'etre of the FOX news network. It isn't even the hilarious claim that the inauguration is a celebration of "the peaceful transition to democracy"; sure, that's a complete delusion -- not even the GOP is claiming there'll be a peaceful transition to democracy in Iraq, and even if there was, why would you celebrate it before it actually happens? -- but it's no more or less delusional than a hundred other things that spill out of FOX anchor's mouths on a daily basis.

No, the really funny part is when, bristling at her guest's suggestion that the $40 mil spent on the festivities might be better used to aid our troops in Iraq, the anchor notes that (a) they had a big party the troops could attend for FREE, and (b) the President PRAYED for them! He had a PRAYER BREAKFAST and everything!

Look, you stupid goddamn liberals! The president threw some of the soldiers a party, AND he PRAYED for them! WHAT MORE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT? THERE'S ONLY SO MUCH ONE MAN CAN DO!
