Fox News and the Rapper Known as Common
On Tuesday night I was idly flipping through TV channels and happened upon Sean Hannity and Karl Rove going ballistic over something. An invitation to the White House, it turned out. For some rapper. He'd called for the assassination of George Bush, Rove said. He was a thug. (A black thug, entirely by coincidence.) Hannity was outraged. Etc. etc.
The whole thing pegged the needle on the ridiculo-meter so hard that I hardly knew how to react. It was like Fox was doing a parody of Fox. I couldn't even bring myself to blog or tweet about it. Luckily, Jon Stewart did the job last night. Enjoy.
