He should have blamed George Bush.

/Vote Vovak 2004
2003-04-23 01:44:51 PM  
Bill Clinton? Is this a joke I'm not getting?
2003-04-23 01:45:03 PM  
Ummm... no he didn't.
Hmmm... that was neither interesting nor funny.
Nor accurate.

Nice choice admins.

the real prize are those gold covered guns

Fox News = Home of dumb journalists and dumberer engineers.
2003-04-23 01:45:53 PM  

/funnier than anything in this article
2003-04-23 01:45:54 PM  
Vovak, could you take Howard Dean in a cage-match?
2003-04-23 01:46:28 PM  
Well its to be expected right? Didn't Fox News steal artwork when they invaded France in 1940?
2003-04-23 01:46:42 PM  
Ah, it was worth a try. It's only a crime if you get caught; too bad he got caught.
2003-04-23 01:46:54 PM  
are you a republican and do you watch fox news alot?
2003-04-23 01:47:09 PM  
This article gets a DONKEY!
2003-04-23 01:47:29 PM  
Yeah, no mention of Clinton. He did say they were for decoration.

At least he got canned. I wonder if Fox News has this on their website.
2003-04-23 01:47:34 PM  
The worst thing about Fox News or the New York Post is that because of Rupert Murdoch's business aspirations, you will never see either organization criticize China. NY Post never had the Spy Plane Incident on it's front cover when ever other paper did and Fox is
2003-04-23 01:47:47 PM  
Is there anyone over that's NOT looting? A guy from the Boston Herald got busted, the army guys were gonna screw off with 13 mil. Hell, they should have advertised this war like the lottery and they could have got a lotta sign ups..."Think you'll never be lucky enough to stumble upon a fake wall with millions of untraceable dollars behind it? Think again! All you need to do is get on a plane for Baghdad! Uncle Sam foots the bill!"

Fox News make Hulk angry!
2003-04-23 01:49:19 PM  
Sure, some 27 year old took the blame, but we all know who it was who swiped the art...

I again suggest someone put togeather a Fox"Nexs" icon.
Extra credit if the x is a swastica.

Don't make me get off my fat ass and make it myself.
2003-04-23 01:51:12 PM  
nice headline
2003-04-23 01:51:18 PM  
What's the point of a war if looting isn't allowed; we've turned into pussies.

Unfortunately, taking spoils is tricky don't have much space to transport things back to your home country, thus decreasing the chances of getting away with anything really valuable.

If you do happen to steal something worth a good deal, you'll never be able sell it because it's marked. Thus is the plight of a greed.
2003-04-23 01:51:37 PM  
Rumbleminz: Vovak, could you take Howard Dean in a cage-match?

Sure. I think politics is much too serious these days anyways.
2003-04-23 01:51:48 PM  
Czar- Nope. Nope.
2003-04-23 01:51:48 PM  
Stupid lying headline.
2003-04-23 01:51:49 PM  
...not critzing China over it's coverup of SARS unlike CNN or the BBC. Bah! Ring Wing only when it doesn't hurt business.

The blame it on Clinton was joke I assume.

/pressed 'add comment' prematurely (blushes)
2003-04-23 01:51:56 PM  
Will Bill O'Reilly point out that the Official looting of Iraq by Americans has begun ?
2003-04-23 01:52:00 PM  
Recockulous: No way. You know all the fake wall compartments he found were empty.
2003-04-23 01:52:11 PM  
Tyndiesrntr -- I'm sure it's just a the poster taking a stab at Fox News for being vehemently conservative, although the poster may also have in mind a certain incident regarding the Clintons leaving the White House and initially taking some of the furnishings with them.
2003-04-23 01:52:36 PM  

According to the twisted, right-leaning world of Fox News, everything is Bill Clinton's fault.
2003-04-23 01:52:37 PM  
Rumbleminz,/b> - War? I think you mean, "liberation".
2003-04-23 01:52:48 PM  
He didn't? Hmmm... I guess MSNBC was wrong. The sentence "Johnson worked for six years as a satellite truck engineer for Fox News Channel, which fired him after learning he had admitted to taking the paintings, a network statement said" must have thrown them off. That's network statement as in Fox network statement.

Oh, yeah: no mention of it on the Fox News web site, so it can't be true. It's just another left wing liberal media elite conspiracy against Fox, eh? ;-)
2003-04-23 01:53:12 PM  
And I think I'm an HTML asshat.

WTF? How does an engineer that got caught stealing have to do with FOX and The Post news coverage of China?

Why did France sell weapons to Iraq post embargo and take money from the U.N.'s Oil for Food program?

He should have blamed George Bush.

/Vote Vovak 2004

You realize, of course, that the / means "close tag", right? As in, "Stop voting Vovak".
2003-04-23 01:54:12 PM  
ass puppet.
2003-04-23 01:54:12 PM  
"Rumbleminz,/b> - War? I think you mean, "liberation"."

illegal invasion is the correct term
2003-04-23 01:56:59 PM  
Oh dear, VitaminB, please excuse my faux pas--but even liberation includes spoils, it's like the "gas money" of salvation.
Like, when your friends are all crazy drunk and need a ride home from the bar...same principle.

Vovak, I, along with tens of others, will be penciling in your name come 2004.
2003-04-23 01:59:08 PM  
Are you gentlemen familiar with the concept of a tontine?
2003-04-23 01:59:12 PM  
Rumleminz:Oh dear, VitaminB, please excuse my faux pas

Who are you Dr. Smith all of a sudden?
2003-04-23 01:59:17 PM  
The best part is, of course, that it's a Faux News employee.

"We steal. You decide."
2003-04-23 02:00:38 PM  
Vovak - I'm sorry, but I just think Howard Dean would kick your ass. The man is my hero. And such eyes...
2003-04-23 02:01:03 PM  
You mean Boubeees!
/damn filter
2003-04-23 02:01:03 PM  
It's not illegal if it's hillarious.

Unfortunately this was not.
2003-04-23 02:01:34 PM  


/Of course every
other news source is innocent

2003-04-23 02:01:47 PM  
he should of put it in his carry on bags next to the gold plated AK.
2003-04-23 02:02:22 PM  
Shanzer: Do they make a shlong to go with those hands?
2003-04-23 02:03:06 PM  
I can't believe the war is time to the U.S should just go along with what they think instead of listening to the "international opinion". I regret opposing this war in the begining...but atleast im brave enough to admit that I was wrong.
2003-04-23 02:03:24 PM  
Fox News logic:

Killer asteroid leaves its elliptical trajectory and moves towards the Earth, prior to impact gravitational forces of the asteroid cause killer earthquakes and tidal waves on all coastal populations worldwide. This causes the orbit of NSA satellite spying on residential Portland, Oregon residents (looking for terrorist for YOUR protection of course...) to shift its orbit by 12.5 degrees and send its mind control, conformity inducing flag waving frequency beam to misalign and hit Fox News engineer in Iraq....causing him, to of course deny it was ever his fault...


FOX is starting to make CNN seem legitimate...even before this incident...

Kang: "Abortions for everyone!"
Crowd: "Booooooo!!!!"
Kang: "No abortions!"
Crowd: "Booooooo!!!!"
Kang: "Abortions for some, little American flags for others!"
Crowd: "Yaaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!"
2003-04-23 02:04:19 PM  
"We steal artwork and reveal sensitive military information. You decide."
2003-04-23 02:05:14 PM  
Whom ever posted this story seriously needs to see a Proctologist to help him find his HEAD!
The "Dumbass of the Day Award" may need to be switched from the bird hating baseball player to the admin who posted this story.
Here's a tip...
That thing between your ears... USE IT!

Anyone else notice Chipaku's post at 1:44:09 is below posts from PapalMonkey, GravyForTheBrain, Blot, Trump, etc. who posted after Chipaku?
