The first guest was the always well informed and lucid half-governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. She spewed forth her usual word-salad run-on sentences, read bullet points off a sheet of paper, and a note off of her hand (seriously). She was asked a diverse set of questions by host Chris Wallace--who to be fair, did not lob only softball questions--from Afghanistan to the immigration law in Arizona. Now, I can see there is a loose connection between Palin and AZ Gov. Jan Brewer. They're both semi-nutty, outsized Governors with polarizing views. But what the f*** does Palin know about Afghanistan, and why the hell should we care? The pull quote from this interview will be, no doubt, that Palin thinks Gov. Brewer has "cojones." Which is funny on a couple of levels. Palin also says, in the same statement that President Obama doesn't have cojones. Nice.
Next up? House Minority Leader John
I haven't gotten around to the ludicrously named "Power Panel" segment, but it is virtually the same every week: a semi-regular group of four people, consisting of two hard-right conservatives, and two centrist, or barely liberals. This week, one of the panelists is Liz Cheney! You'll never find Chris Hayes or David Sirota in the "liberal" spot on this show.
If you want a single show to point to that fairly well proves the bias of FOX "News"--something that should need no reference; it's like saying the sun is hot--point to the August 1, 2010 edition of FOX "News" Sunday. Cojones, also.
