FoxNews fresh off telling us what is and isn’t appropriate at Memorials because that’s all they got, is going to show us all how remembrances are done.

Coming this Martin Luther King, Jr. Day they’re doing the totally appropriate thing.

Bringing civil rights pioneers Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin together to talk about how awesome both guns and metaphors about aiming them at their political opponents can be. How could King possibly have disapproved? Why, they’re even going to do it LIVE without commercial breaks for Goldline and Brink’s Home Security getting in the way.

Damn, I was sort of hoping they would, as usual, tastefully save all the blood libel talk for Passover…I guess we can still hope.

…oh, and somewhat on this subject…THIS as brought forth by Lawrence O’Donnell last night is straight out of 1930s Munich…except it is modern San Diego.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
