Do they pretend that their slogan is still Fair and Balanced anymore?
 
2013-10-01 07:55:48 PM
How do they not get falling down dizzy from all that spinning?

You have to bear in mind how horrifying that word "slimdown" is to all the fat couch-cows who watch Fox News.

They've always pretended.  Or lied, I can never tell the difference.

Even the pictures they use are bad.

Boehner look cool and collected
Obama looks indecisive and weak
Reid looks like he's bargaining

Just put on the glasses, or I will kick your ass in an extending and improbable fight scene.

It will only be a fail when CNN and MSNBC start calling it the government slimdown.

I hope the CNN crew is just pointing and laughing at Fox right now.

I swear, if you could harness political spin for electricity, Fox News could power the world for the next 1000 years.

Does Fox News have to put a bullshiat spin on everything? Even the teabaggers are calling it a shutdown.
 
2013-10-01 08:40:50 PM
Nice to see Frank Luntz still getting work
 
2013-10-01 08:41:23 PM
If it's a slim down will I get partial back pay?
 
2013-10-01 08:41:38 PM
This is pretty much proof that the GOP knows what it did was wrong, and are trying to avoid the consequences.

Its not a shutdown its a uh.. umm.

Slimdown, we are trimming government fat!

Not that we caused this, or anything its the democrats doing it... the shutd... err slimdown

which isnt that bad, except it is because its the democrats that did it. So its bad.

Weasel News: confirming your prejudices.
 
2013-10-01 08:42:56 PM
I wonder if they will refer to the House GOP as economic homicide bombers instead of economic suicide bombers.

I think we can damn near guarantee they've been focus group testing that phrase since the sequester.

Came to say this. I'm surprised they don't refer to the ACA as Obama's Exercise Plan to really scare them.

Revoke SS checks and paychecks to the military and see how long Fox continues this "slimdown" bullshiat.

"Slimdown" seriously smacks of desperation.  Wow.
 
2013-10-01 08:47:06 PM
Do people on Fark not know how to use Facebook or something? I don't understand the "omgzors derp? On my FB page?" whining.

You can configure Facebook so people who offend you don't appear on your front page or news page or whatever the fark it's called. It's really simple, it must be because I've done it and I barely use Facebook.

Pretty sure they don't even know you've blocked them. Yeah, you might miss out on all their baby pictures or photos of them eating dinner and all their cool status updates. Seems a small price to pay.

You seriously think a stoppage of military checks will affect anyone at Fox News who hasn't already invested 40+ years of it into the stock market?

This is the second time I've seen the pretend word "anyways" on Fark today.

Why would the vets have to storm the monument,were there barricades up?

Probably not, but then again I'm not friends with assholes.

It's Fox...
You know how poorly they spell. The correct phrase is Republican Slimedown
 
2013-10-01 08:48:31 PM
Slimdowns sound doubleplusgood.  How can you hate a slimdown?

MY facebook page doesn't get that kind of crap. Because I don't friend teabaggers. I do have one friend who (based on what he claims to be paying in taxes) makes over 100k a year, he's way pissed at having to get coverage at $600 a month with a 12,500 annual out-of-pocket max

Wait till the Dems insist on a clean, full bill. Will it be the Anorexicdown?
 
2013-10-01 08:52:30 PM
It's not tax cuts for the rich...it's "tax fairness"
it's not brutally murdering a baby...it's "reproductive rights"

Nothing new to see here....been going on for decades.
 
2013-10-01 08:52:58 PM
I think I could see the government never reopening up again.

Kudos for Boehner for standing up to Americans. Tea Party people are Americans too, not second class citizens.

Yes, there were. In the AFP article I read - which, I must note, could have been cherry picked - the guys storming the barricades were pretty clear about who they blame for this nonsense, and it rhymes with "bepublicans."
 
2013-10-01 08:54:25 PM
I doubt anyone who uses the phrase "government slim down" has never known a "slim down" in their entire fat, diabetic, wheezy lives.
 
2013-10-01 08:55:28 PM
By the way, you know who else liked slimdowns? That's right - Karen Carpenter.
 
2013-10-01 08:55:50 PM

If Karen Carpenter had eaten Mama Cass' sandwich they'd both be alive today.

Congress may not pay its bills, but Frank Luntz does.
