Idiotic Updated

Fox News, or as some like to call it, Faux News, made two spectacular gaffes in their coverage of the bombings yesterday. First, a Fox News reported talking about those responsible for the bombing:
That these people are, If necessary, prepared to spill Arab blood in addition to the blood of regular -- of nonarab people living in London.
Second, Fox anchor Brian Kilmeade talking about the ramifications of the attack:
And that was the first time since 9-11 when they should know, and they do know now, that terrorism should be Number 1. But it's important for them all to be together. I think that works to our advantage, in the Western world's advantage, for people to experience something like this together, just 500 miles from where the attacks have happened.
Not the best day for Fox News.

Update: More idiocy. Brit Hume, one of Fox News's top anchormen said yesterday:
"My first thought when I heard - just on a personal basis, when I heard there had been this attack and I saw the futures this morning, which were really in the tank, I thought, 'Hmmm, time to buy.'"
Great first thought, Brit.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
