Fox News is hyperventilating 'cause Obama invited a scary black rapper to a poetry event! Nevermind that six months ago, Fox News said about this very same rapper, "Common", that he was "a "rap legend" whose "music is very positive." That was then, and this is now. Down the memory hole that "positive rap legend" stuff goes, now he's a scary black man to use to scare the tighty whities who watch Fox News, next thing you know they're gonna say that "Common" killed a man in Reno just to see'em die...

  1. When do we get to stop caring about what a mass of easily frightened, easily manipulated people think? Does it matter? If they're as easy to control as flatworms, they shouldn't count for much in the larger scheme of things. They'll do what they're manipulated to do, no matter what, so fcuk 'em.

  2. Bukko, those flatworms vote, so yes, they matter. Alas. But as you say, there's not much we can do about it other than point and laugh. So that's what I do.

  3. BTW, shouldn't your avatar be wearin' a toque?

  4. Stewart eviscerated Fox on this last night. I wanted to fap while watching.
