I want this Fox and Friends episode taped, because when NBC loses the video rights to the Olympics and Fox tries to kowtow their way in, the IOC can just play this episode in front of them and just scowl at them. Fox might still get the rights, but it'd be perfect just for the scowl.

Ball cap in an international setting = calling card of the American douche

Cowboy hat = male stripper

But really, the berets look silly. I'm fine with no hats.

The Stealth Hippopotamus: Quasar: I remember how they made a huge deal about Obama taking time out of his busy schedule to fly over there as if to wow them with his cult of personality (to which they were immune), gleefully ignoring how 3 of the 4 nations in contention also sent over their head honchos (and the fourth sent a high-ranking leader). If he didn't go, they would have complained about that.

Only one problem Chicago never had a chance. Not a single chance.


According to the voices in your head?

I don't really care that Chicago didn't get the Olympics, but hearing freepers and their ilk cheering it as they perceived as some kind of slam against Obama proved yet again how childish and idiotic the teabaggers are.

Can we be outraged about something else? A TV show, which says it does not claim to be straight news, says something stupid about Americans wearing berets in the Olympics. Faux News does enough dumb shiat that this should pretty much be a non-story.

Oh well, continue with your outrage.

The 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics

Hey, isn't there someone in the news for helping to organize that?


Remember, this is also the one time the IOC was never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, corrupt, no siree, and Willard made them all tow the line.

IAmRight: mitchcumstein1: Last time we fought the British, it didn't work out so well for us.

Meh, that's because they keep starting sh*t over here. Still didn't win.

It really is weird how we supposedly like England and hate France as a country, though, considering most everything awesome we got from France (hey, thanks for independence and that whole middle of the country!).


Well, our relations with France went bad pretty quickly after the end of the Revolutionary War. The War of 1812 could just as easily have been against France.

Sucked then, too. Made by some Canadian company.

HotWingConspiracy: But really, the berets look silly. I'm fine with no hats.


This. The whole outfit reeks of Frenchness. Is a white flag included with the ensemble?

A dunce cap would be appropriate, I believe

The only good thing about Fox and Friends is when they had Kiran Chetry as the host. And only becuase she was so damn hot.

So, the US military wears French headgear. Your point?
 
2012-07-11 03:23:42 PM  
If the French navy had not prevented Cornwallis from reinforcing and resupplying his troops, we could have been farked at Yorktown.
 
2012-07-11 03:27:18 PM  
I thought the beret was Basque in origin? & I'd invite the Fox n' Friends to find a true Basque & call him or her "French."

Much hilarity would ensue. For the rest of us, anyway...

My point is, if the friendly friends at Fox & Friends honestly consider berets, and by extension those who wear them, to be unpatriotic, then they consider every single branch of our military to be unpatriotic.

C'mon, they have a hard enough a time trying to find a true Scotsman.

Falser words have never been spoken.

Steve Doocy. "Why not a baseball cap? Why not a cowboy hat like we had when we went to Calgary. Or why not do something very American and go topless?"

Hey I'm all for that, if we can convince all the Olympic athletes to go topless it would be a boobie bonanza! All those young firm athletic tits, the parade of nations would be nothing but me fapping for three hours.
 
2012-07-11 04:36:10 PM  
Actually, having any knolwedge of Fox and Friends would prepare you pretty well for this kind of stupidity.

I mean christ, the cowboy hat is basically an americanized version of the sombrero, and we all know how Fox and Friends feels about people who were those.

Americanized? Mexicans and other Latinos were wearing them first.

Mr. Coffee Nerves: I'm guessing an Olympic outfit designed by Fox would be a Tricorner hat with a spring-loaded Bald Eagle that cries Drakkar Noir over anyone from a socialist country, a t-shirt with Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney and Ronald Reagan giving an Alabama Pump Handle to a crying Michael Moore in the back of a Monster Truck as it runs over a dashiki-wearing Obama as he tries to clear a paper jam he created by trying to shred the Constitution and his Kenyan birth certificate simultaneously, sparkly American Flag Zubaz pants and Crocs.


Well I know what *I'm* wearing to the bar tonight!

Can we get them to all go in naked, maybe for the closing ceremony, when they hang out with the people they hooked up with anyway?

We did beat them badly in New Orleans...after the war was over.
Cheap shot, but it worked.

Honestly, this is a great idea. Let's dress like the colonial army as we go in and f*ck their sh*t up again.

Last time we fought the British, it didn't work out so well for us.


Ah, to be in a pub, listening to the jingoistic, self-righteous pronouncements of 1812's version of Republitard.

"We'd have won it, if only for the damn federalists holding us back!!!"

"If'n you don't like it, you can get the helll out...west, in the territories!"

"Usin' my taxes to pay for a Continental army? Monarchism!!! Monarchism!!! Monarchism!!!"

Probably not, but the bid was made and Chicago was in the running with only 4 other cities by Round 3 or something. Either you make a show or you just blow it off. The Olympics are supposed to be an incredibly diplomatic series of events. Regardless of how you feel about politics, you DON'T take it out on athletes or ambassadors representing our country. Yet that's exactly what these assholes did. They made a big deal about Obama going to the committee and cheered when Chicago lost. Fox ran video after video of teabaggers cheering & applauding in bars when Chicago was dropped.

Yet, suddenly, they're all butthurt because the American team isn't wearing hats that are "American enough"? F*ck Fox and the rest of the tea-tards.
