Fox News’ Twitter Acct Gets Hacked: “We Want To Make Out With Obama!!”

Assuming the account was hacked by a 13-year old techno-geek, Fox News’ Twitter account got fried with a butt-load of hilarity earlier today.

Of course, by the time you comb down to the bottom of the list, the language becomess obvious: The kid was obviously Ferris Bueller because his parents bought him a computer instead of a convertible…which is what they bought for his older-sister.  Also obvious; Bill O’Reilly will have to aim his sites on all of those “Not So Fair-And-Balanced” computer hackers out there who are willing to damage their reputation for…Umm…  Something or other.

In addition to those seen in the thumbnail, Media ITE (story source) included this juicy Tweet that bears mentioning:

“We want to make out with Barack Obama. That’s how much we love him.”

I haven’t laughed that hard since I fried a Novell file server in ’95 by renaming “syscon.exe” to “jerkwad.com”. (Hint: Geek Humor Alert!)

FruitFly 6Fox News is claiming that the account didn’t belong to them (so no harm was done).  Meanwhile, they went out on a limb to clarify that they had a conversation with the Twitter-Dudes about the incident and that they had the account deleted (because it didn’t belong to them anyway).  It’s the power of “Fox News”: They have that kind of juice with Twitter!

Don’t believe me? Check it out…”jerkwad“!  h/t to mparent!  Good Eye, Dude!

Pat Stephens is a Giant Sized Douche

Pat Stephens didn’t like my cartoon on Sarah Palin responsible for killing Bullwinkle. So, Stephens leaves a comment that says this:

Response to fruitfly:
I don’t know if you are really as nasty as you seem on paper or you just want to be noticed. But people, and I say that loosely, like you and Shannyn Moore, must really have a pathetic life with nothing to do but trash someone who is honest and above board with their politics.
It is a shock that someone as beautiful and smart as Sarah Palin has the guts to go against the mainstream media and bloggers as yourself, speak for the people of the United States and our well being.
I hope and pray, you along with people like Shannyn Moore get sued and loose everything you have for being so hurtful.
May God Bless You,
Pat Stephens

Nice, huh?

Stephens can’t decide if I’m really that nasty, but is hoping I get sued by Sarah Palin and lose everything I have for being so hurtful.  …But, I”m the one who’s being nasty.

Sarah Palin is an elected official.  When you put your name on the ballot, you’re open to anything and everything the people want to throw at you.  The United States Constitution gives me the right to say anything I want about our elected officials!  It’s guaranteed!

…Except if you’re that  Republican Darling called Sarah Palin.  Because then…By George…You’re being NASTY!

And check out that last line: “May God Bless You.”  What kind of lie is that?!?!?

“I hope you’re cursed with lawsuits…and I hope God blesses you too!”

Sarah Palin is an idioit.  And Pat Stephens is too!  Welcome to the “Smart Kids” in Elementary School of Republican Party!

These Republicans have said the nastiest things about Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack and Michelle Obama.  Heinous, vile things like shouting “Kill Him” and “Hang Him” when John McCain (R-Candidate) was on the campaign trail and mentions Obama’s name.  When Sarah Palin was campaigning, people were audiblly loud shouting calling Obama the “N-Word” and neither Palin or McCain put a stop to it.

See for yourself.

And yet… Pat Stephens is pissed off at me because I posted a cartoon.

Oh…the horror!

Joan Walsh Gets Attacked by Bill O’Reilly, Over Abortion

O’Reilly asked from the beginning:

“Do you think fetuses in the late term deserve any protecion (from the law) at all?!

Watch Joan Walsh screw-up by struggling with priorities…  She’s pathetic:

“Well Bill, you know.. Umm…

Bill O’Reilly is desperate for a black and white answer and Joan Walsh screws up with “IF”, “THEN”, and “ELSE”  conditional statement.  You can’t answer an “Either – Or” question with conditions. Shame on Walsh.  Her answer should have been simple:

“Bill, if your 10 year old daughter was incestuously raped by your 16-year old son, are you going to demand your daughter bring that pregnancy to full term?  Think about that Bill; your daughter is going into the fifth grade and she’ll be a mother!

fruitfly21Walsh should have yelled back just as loud as O’Reilly too. Here’s another one – (Joan Walsh is such an amateur… Jesus!):

“Bill, if the long anticipated pregnancy you and your wife looked forward to suddenly ended from fetal demise, do you think your wife should have the ability to have the dead carcas removed?

Pro-Lifers are constantly on this kick that too many women are simply skanky whores who are throwing their legs open and pullling babies out of their vagina with coat hangers like they didn’t have a care in the world.  And they do it because it’s easy.  What Pro-Lifers refuse to allow the general public to see is the ugly underbelly of our society that happens far too often  with sex and pregnancy.

Young girls do get raped, many times incestuously.

Pregnant women do get diagnosed with terminal cancer and are expected to die before carrying their pregnancy to full term.

Many women are victims of a naturally occurring condition called fetal demise, and doctors routinely will refuse to offer assistance out of fear of being labeled a “baby killer”.

Since these horrific issues are ignored, women’s needs and the plights of women’s lives are in peril at the expense of a religious zealotry.

Here’s another one Walsh could have used:

Bill – are you in favor of Capital Punishment?!

That’ll get ’em every time!

Kill ’em after they’ve been yanked out of the birth canal!  That way; we can all watch ’em die in the public arena!  Yee Haw!

…If you’re interested – Bill gets all pissed off at around 8:00 when he’s screaming and hollering and Joan Walsh is acting like a battered wife.  It’s a pathetic scene.  Joan Walsh falls all over herself trying to come up with excuses in exchange for the horrors of the obvious.

Bill O’Reilly yells in favor of legal rights for the unborn – and since he wasn’t born with a uteris, he feels like his opinion should count for something.

Is the GOP becoming the American Taliban?! Let’s ask GOP Voters!

On July 26th, just weeks before the DNC would meet in Denver, Jim Adkisson of Knoxville, TN walk into the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Chuch, pulled out a shotgun from a guitar case and opened fire on the congregation while the children were performing “Annie” on the stage. Admittedly, the man was poor – about to lose his food stamps, but he was a hard-nose Repbulican . While firing off his shotgun killing two members of the congregation and injuring a half-dozen others, he vented his hatred towards “liberals” and “the gays”.

A four-page letter found in Jim D. Adkisson’s small SUV indicated he intentionally targeted the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church because, the police chief said, “he hated the liberal movement” and was upset with “liberals in general as well as gays.”

Following the attack, the police slipped to the media a letter written by Adkisson who…:

indicated … that he expected to be in there (the church) shooting people until the police arrived and that he fully expected to be killed by the responding police,” Owen said. “He certainly intended to take a lot of casualties.”

In other words: Adkisson was hoping to be a martyr for the Republican Party. (A photo blog of the incident, including those who were murdered can be seen here. It’s tragic and horrifying — but only if you insist…)

The following day, the police searched Adkisson’s home only to find the latest copies of Republican pundits, all of whom call for the killing of liberals and gays.

Inside the house, officers found ‘Liberalism is a Mental Health Disorder’ by radio talk show host Michael Savage, ‘Let Freedom Ring’ by talk show host Sean Hannity, and ‘The O’Reilly Factor,’ by television talk show host Bill O’Reilly.”

Two weeks after the Tennessee shooting, a man walked into the Arkansas DNC Party’s state headquarters in Little Rock and fired three shots killing Arkansas DNC Chair Bill Gwatney. Gwatney died at the ripe old age of 48. Unlike Adkisson, the gunman did not survive — the police simply thinned him from the herd.

Since the November elections, terrorism and terroristic plots have come to an all time high. In Tennessee, police arrested two Republicans plotting to kill school children, as well as President-elect Barack Obama.

While the allegations of the plot might seem too weird and half-crazed to ever succeed, these two gun-toting men wanted to shoot and decapitate fellow Americans, even children, expecting to die in the process of an act that qualifies as terrorism.

These stories from Republicans aren’t new. In October 2006, popular talk show host Melanie Morgan who’s a regular on Fox News and MSNBC complained about the New York Times Editor in Chief, Bill Keller by saying:

“If he were to be tried and convicted of treason, yes, I would have no problem with him being sent to the gas chamber,” Morgan told the San Francisco Chronicle.

The right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, never to be outdone, opined in her syndicated column, “I prefer a firing squad, but I’m open to a debate on the method of execution.”

But since the elections, local small towns have seen a much larger rise in these kinds of activities.

Away from the spotlight, many local newspapers around the country have covered recent incidents of racially motivated reactions to last week’s election, from flags hung upside-down to the dangling of nooses and cross burnings. As we noted last week, a couple in northern New Jersey who had an Obama sign on their front lawn woke up to find the charred remains of a cross. Local residents today announced a “unity march” to protest the still-unsolved incident.

A bullet-by-bullet (if you’d pardon the horrible pun) lists a handful of these activities.

The Associated Press revealed today, “Police on eastern Long Island are investigating reports that more than a dozen cars were spray painted with racist graffiti, reportedly including a message targeting President-elect Barack Obama. The graffiti included racist slurs and sexually graphic references. At least one resident in the quiet Mastic neighborhood told Newsday her son’s car was scribbled with a message threatening to kill Obama.”

Parents in Rexburg, Idaho, contacted school officials this week after they learned that 2nd and 3rd graders on a school bus were chanting, “Assasssinate Obama!”

Employees at Hampel’s Key and Lockshop in Traverse City, Michigan, flew an American flag upside down last Wednesday protesting of the new president-elect, the Traverse City Record-Eagle reported. One worker used a racial slur during an interview with the Record-Eagle: “(The inverted flag is) an international signal for distress and we feel our country is in distress because the n—– got in,” said Hampel’s employee Rod Nyland, who later apologized for the comment, according to the Record-Eagle.

Also in Michigan, in Midland, a man dressed in full Ku Klux Klan regalia walked around toting a handgun and waving an American flag. Initially denying it, the man eventually admitted to police that the display was a reaction to the Obama victory. “[The man] had a concealed weapon permit and was walking up and down the sidewalk in front of a vehicle dealership while some motorists shouted obscenities at him and others shouted accolades,” police told The Saginaw News.

One North Carolina man who flew his flag upside-down claimed that voters were racist, electing Obama because of his skin color, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. “The flag is stretched upside-down between two poles in a field, with a black X running from end to end. The X is a reference to the Confederate flag, said flag-owner Tony Heath. It reflects his belief that the Confederate flag has been unfairly targeted for protest by people trying to be politically correct,” the Journal reported.

In Pennsylvania, an interracial couple in Apolacon Township discovered the remains of a burned cross in their front yard. “The couple discovered the remnants of the cross about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday (Nov. 5) when a man knocked at their door. Johnson looked out the front window and noticed charring on the utility pole, then discovered two charred 1-by-3-inch planks, each about 4 feet in length, beneath it,” according to the Star-Gazette. The woman, who is Jewish, lives with her husband, who is black. “The Little Meadows area was the site of KKK rallies several decades ago, and a local woman who worked on Obama’s campaign said Wednesday she heard tales of racist remarks directed at supporters,” the story concludes.

Just today, two men were arrested there: 19-year-old Forrest Ashcraft and 22-yearold Stephen Barret of Friendsville. They’re charged with ethnic intimidation and trespassing.

Authorities in Temecula, Calif., found spray-painted graffiti on a city sidewalk containing a swastika and anti-Obama slogan.

From today’s Los Angeles Times: “Vandals spray-painted swastikas and racial slurs on a house and several cars in Torrance that displayed campaign signs or bumper stickers for President-elect Barack Obama, authorities said Tuesday. The incidents occurred Saturday night in the Hollywood Riviera section of the city, said Sgt. Bernard Anderson. Four separate incidents were reported the next day, he said. No arrests have been made.

“At one house, the phrase ‘Go Back to Africa’ was spray-painted across the wall, in addition to a racial epithet on the garage door, Anderson said. Several parked vehicles on the streets were spray-painted with racial slurs, he said.”

Today, the NAACP called on North Carolina State University to expel four students who spray painted racist messages about Obama. Two of the messages said: “Let’s shoot that (N-word) in the head” and “Hang Obama by a noose.”

Students at Baylor University woke up on Election Day to a rope tied like a noose hanging from a tree outside of Morrison Hall, according to college newspaper The Lariat: “Later, verbal altercations occurred outside of Penland Residence Hall. A group of Obama supporters were walking around shouting ‘Obama’ and then passed a group of white men outside who made threatening and racist remarks, said Emmanuel Orupabo, Arlington senior,” according to the Lariat.

Another post-election noose incident happened in Maine. “More than 75 people rallied Sunday against an incident last week in which black figures were hanged by nooses from trees on Mount Desert Island the day after Barack Obama won the presidential election,” according to the Bangor Daily News. At a high school in Gray, a student was suspended after standing up in class, making a racist comment, and saying Obama should not be president, the News reported. Later that day, graffiti making a similar statement was found in a boys’ restroom.

Republican leadership has done nothing to address this. GOP Leadership is far too busy scratching their heads in Miami trying to find a way to save their party.

Put simply: They’re ignoring all of it.

During the McCain/Palin campaign, both candidates ignored people in the audience who cheered “Kill Him!!” and “Terrorist” when Barack Obama’s name was mentioned.

In Lakeville, MN – McCain stopped one audience member’s fear of Barack Obama and went on to defend his colleague from the United States Senate. McCain’s own audience responded and booed McCain.

Just two days ago (11/10/08), the Secret Service confronted Mr. and Mrs. Obam and explained:

The Secret Service warned the Obama family in mid October that they had seen a dramatic increase in the number of threats against the Democratic candidate, coinciding with Mrs Palin’s attacks.

Michelle Obama, the future First Lady, was so upset that she turned to her friend and campaign adviser Valerie Jarrett and said: “Why would they try to make people hate us?”

The revelations, contained in a Newsweek history of the campaign, are likely to further damage Mrs Palin’s credentials as a future presidential candidate. She is already a frontrunner, with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, to take on Mr Obama in four years time.

Details of the spike in threats to Mr Obama come as a report last week by security and intelligence analysts Stratfor, warned that he is a high risk target for racist gunmen. It concluded: “Two plots to assassinate Obama were broken up during the campaign season, and several more remain under investigation. We would expect federal authorities to uncover many more plots to attack the president that have been hatched by white supremacist ideologues.”

The United States Secret Service fingers Sarah Palin for this increased threat, and yet – the former Vice Presidential candidate has not yet been arrested for coercion. Of course she wouldn’t be arrested. But at a minimum, she could go public and call for an end of the rancor she’s caused!

She won’t. McCain won’t. Nobody in the Republican party will. And with gun sales at an all time high right now, we need to hold the Republican Party responsible for every hair on the heads of every member of the Obama family.

Do I think the average Republican voter has gone rogue…plotting terroristic vendettas against President-elect and Mrs. Obama? That would make me guilty of stereotyping – painting a broad brushstroke to explain a narrowly diverse group of my own fellow Americans. But I am deeply concerned by the frenzy that’s boiling up that’s spotting across the country.

Fox News is no help. Like a bellows in a blacksmith’s shop, Fox News seems to be fanning huge amounts of oxygen across the flames already far too hot to contain. And yet, the Republican Party does nothing.

On October 11th, the Huffington Post reported that Congressman John Lewis, a man who (miraculously) survived the Civil Rights movement of the early sixties, complained about the McCain/Palin campaign:

“As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign,” Lewis said in a statement. “Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.”

Lewis said:

“George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights.”

McCain did nothing. Neither did Palin. Instead of seeing the wisdom (and the horrifying experiences) of Congressman Lewis’ words, McCain simply trotted off and demanded Barack Obama repudiate Congressman Lewis’ remarks.

McCain and Palin both, need to stop this now.

But they won’t. <– Hello! Is anybody listening?!

Hello!! _ _ _ + + + _ _ _

Is there anybody out there?

Fox News: Sarah Palin – Dumb as Soup

sarah-palin2The GOP’s youngest and brightest stars shine through the foggy gaze of their geriatric seniors. Just a few months ago, Fox News was gushing over Palin, her beauty and her experience as an “executive” – albeit for less than eighteen months.

On August 29th, Carl Cameron from Fox News wrote about Palin:

Palin brings to the Republican ticket a resume that challenges conventional wisdom while it plays into the party’s conservative base. Palin is, among other things, a former beauty queen, a mother of five, an abortion opponent, a union member, hockey player and moose hunter. She is said to be a reformer who takes pride in standing up to the “good ol’ boy network,” and she has served as the top ethics watchdog in her state.

“I would be honored to serve next to the next president of the United States,” Palin said after joining McCain, his wife Cindy and daughter Meghan on stage. “To be chosen is a great challenge. I know that it will demand everything I have to give and I promise nothing less.”

Cameron can’t gush enough over Palin, her qualifications and her bio. And when Team Obama responded, Cameron was quick to point it out:

The tone contrasted with that of a more-critical statement issued earliar in the day by an Obama spokesman questioning Palin’s experience.

“Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency,” spokesman Bill Burton said.

After rambling on about Palin’s selection, the secrecy behind the decision and how Governors Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) and MItt Romney (R-MA) were skipped over – Cameron goes on gushing:

Palin is well received among both economic and social conservatives. She is quoted saying in 2002 that she is as “pro-life as any candidate can be.” The Club for Growth, a government spending watchdog, described Palin as a “genuine reformer.”

“At a time when many Republicans are still clinging to pork-barrel politics, Governor Palin has quickly become a leader on this issue,” said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. “She is a principled reformer who understands how badly wasteful spending has marred the Republican brand.”

But that was then, and this is now. Carl Cameron is live on Fox News pointing out that Sarah Palin, Alaska’s finest governor, is actually, dumber than a pail of nails. In an interview with Fox News’ Shep Smith:

Carl Cameron talking to Bill O’Reilly just now on Fox reveals that McCain aides were truly “shocked” at the “gaps in knowledge” Sarah Palin displayed once they were stuck with her. He said that, in the most startling shortcoming, she actually didn’t “understand that Africa was not just a country, but a continent.” This led, among other things, to her asking how, in that case, South Africa could be a separate country. She also could not name all of the countries in North America, he said, not even the NAFTA partners. And she did not know many of the basics of civics and local/state/national duties. O’Reilly pooh-poohed all of this.

I’m guessing that Bill O’Reilly pooh-poohed all of this because he didn’t know Africa was a continent and remains confused about South Africa being a country to this day! But, I digress. Please! Let the “GOP Love Fest” continue!!

But the “gaps” explain, Cameron said, why tensions erupted as McCain aides were truly alarmed by all of this — yet Palin wanted to speak out freely. So in the closing week or so, they reveal, she took to yelling and screaming at aides over her press clippings, even “tossing papers” around. She was so out of touch she actually refused coaching before the Katie Couric interviews, then yelled at staffers for not preparing her better or warning her off the interviews. “Temper tantrums,” etc. Then there were the clothes bills and greeting McCain aides in a bath towel….UPDATE: Anchorage Daily News asks her to confirm above, she refuses to discuss it at all.

Below is an earlier Cameron interview on Fox today. Shep Smith at least asked, how could they name someone as veep who didn’t know that Africa is a continent? — Greg Mitchell

The “wearing only a towel” caught the attention here at Fruit Fly central. Huffington Post has that story:

At the GOP convention in St. Paul, Palin was completely unfazed by the boys’ club fraternity she had just joined. One night, Steve Schmidt and Mark Salter [Senior McCain Aides] went to her hotel room to brief her. After a minute, Palin sailed into the room wearing nothing but a towel, with another on her wet hair. She told them to chat with her laconic husband, Todd. “I’ll be just a minute,” she said.

It was only two weeks ago that McCain aides were complaining she was a Diva!

“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone,” said this McCain adviser, “she does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else. Also she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: divas trust only unto themselves as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom.

What was their first clue?

Newsweek is running a story where McCain and Palin aides were furious at Palin’s outrageous spending at Neiman Marcus and Sax Fifth Avenue. What was reported earlier on the GOP’s spending for her new clothes was hardly a drop in the bucket.

One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family—clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. According to two knowledgeable sources, a vast majority of the clothes were bought by a wealthy donor, who was shocked when he got the bill. Palin also used low-level staffers to buy some of the clothes on their credit cards. The McCain campaign found out last week when the aides sought reimbursement. One aide estimated that she spent “tens of thousands” more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost. An angry aide characterized the shopping spree as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast,” and said the truth will eventually come out when the Republican Party audits its books.

They called the Palins “Wasilla Hillbillies”. That’s hysterical. Just think, these Hillbillies almost became Vice President of the United States and in charge of the American taxpayer’s money!

Secret Young Republicans training compound located!!

First photos are emerging from behind the enemy lines, where their nefarious indoctrination techniques corrupt the innocent minds of America’s youth and prepare them for a life committed to espousing Republican ideology that runs counter to their own self interests!

We all owe a debt of gratitude to the Democratic operatives that have risked their lives to bring us this first haunting photo:

Elephant Slide

Here we can obviously see a seemingly innocent piece of playground equipment that has been twisted by the right-wing propaganda masters into some sort of sick political metaphor…

Undercover operatives for the Democratic Party have told us that Republican parents force their unwilling children up the molded plastic stairs into the GOP’s “Indoctrination Machine.” These children remain inside for up to 48 hours until they are fully processed. The children, once they are completely transformed into a smelly mass of waste material, will eventually tumble down the chute behind the Indoctrination Machine fully prepared to carry-on the Neocon Agenda.

Said one Republican mother after her child was expelled from the Indoctrination Machine: “Oh, he’s still the little stinker he always was….” where she snickered and waddled away.FruitFly

UNICEF, Save the Children and Sally Struthers have begun nationwide media campaigns to save these poor little children before they’ve become indoctrinated into the little GOP shit’s that’s expected of each and every one of them. So please: If you can give anything, please give to Sally Struther’s Christian Children’s Fund. Because Jesus, and only Jesus could love these little Turds.

I found it on Bartcop Nation… So it must be true!

Big Box Bucks Bail on Bill-Oooo

texansBill O’Reilly would do himself some good if he would leave the DailyKos alone and shut up. For over a week now, Fox News’ Golden Boy, Bill O’Reilly has hammering at the DailyKos and calling it a “Hate Site”. The website’s fan following is currently holding their extended family picnic in Chicago known as YearlyKos where a number of prominent Democrats are making an appearance. Which explains why Bill O’Reilly has been keeping up the vitrole so loudly on D’Kos.

My favorite DailyKos piece was when they begged BillO for mercy because of the huge amount of Internet traffic the DailyKos site has been getting since the beginning.

Please, Bill O’Reilly, spare us from your savage and inexplicable rage. We can’t take any more of it. Being defended by Keith Olbermann… being roundly and sternly publicized by Stephen Colbert… it’s all too much. The extra traffic, the publicity, the footage of your narcissistic tantrums… the subsequent exposure of hate speech and death threats on your pay-to-post blog. How can any liberal website withstand such a well-planned assault?

Please, Bill, I am personally begging you: stop your organized Fox News effort to promote us to wider and wider audiences. Between you and your Fox News compatriot Bill Kristol, we can’t take it anymore. How are we supposed to compete with a man whose written punditry has led to the deaths of tens of thousands? How can we sustain ourselves when attacked by a talk show host well known for his fabrication of facts and stories? Our imaginary lesbian street gangs have been decimated already: what more havoc will Fox News wreak upon us in our hour of despair?

But, BillO has become his own worst enemy.  Taking pride by deciding who you’ll spend your advertising dollar on, it appears that Big Box corporate CEO’s are still paying attention and are bailing on BillO.

Who dumped him first?

Lowes

Lowe’s bailed last Friday afternoon.

And now today, we’ve learned that

the Home Depot guys bailed on BillO today.

This was a pretty easy decision to make too. I had to laugh because of the definitive attitude that came out of the emailings. For example, Americablog carried this email. See if you can detect any uncertainy about pulling out of BillO’s show:

HA HA!

You can keep up the moment and join the folks over at Fox Attacks. They’re recruiting folks to call advertisers on Fox and complain about the bullshit that comes out of that propaganda machine. And they’re looking for folks who can endure Fox by watching anything of that show and identify new advertisers.

They’ve also got a YouTube video up that’s pretty damned funny too.

I know personally, the CEO of this company

…And when I asked him if he had any inclination to advertise on Bill O’Reilly’s show he said;

“PHPPHHPH… yeah right. That putz?! DOUBT IT!!”Me
