Stay Classy ‘FoxNews’
Having earlier magnanimously offered to wait until they "lynched her" and almost fainting over "terrorist fist-jabs" the "delightful" people of FoxNews have finally taken a positive, life-affirming stand on Michelle Obama that its parade of McCain voting alleged former Hillary Clinton supporters (emphasis on alleged) proclaiming misogyny can be proud.
During a segment discussing conservative attacks against Michelle Obama, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama, the network described the former as "Obama’s baby mama."
I checked, and sure enough, as you can see below, our e-mailer was right. In fact, that description was displayed on screen several times during the segment, which featured anchor Megyn Kelly and conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, an FNC contributor.
I believe the term they are searching for is "wife".
Every four years the nation gathers, not just to vote, but find out what slander the Republicans will use against the wife of the Democratic Presidential Nominee this year:
1988: Kitty Dukakis, and the myth of the feces coated flag.
1992: Hillary Clinton and the "ball-busting communist harpy" (should be 1992 to present)
1996: See above, add dash of "murdering lesbian inside-trader".
2000: Tipper Gore, broke the heart of Oliver’s old rich-guy father Oliver, claimed you never had to say you’re sorry and later co-starred in ‘Convoy’.
2004: OMG! Teresa Kerry is rich, intelligent and has an accent, and she replaced a Republican with a Democrat. We cannot have TWO Arianna Huffington’s in this world!
2008: She’s well-educated, a lawyer, and a black woman — unleash the hounds!
It’s going to be a long five months.
Good for bloggers though.
