I don't really need daily updates to remind me that Gretchen Carlson is an idiot.

Every time I look at her, my first thought is that she'd fit right in as a mean-spirited, gossipy, back-stabbing Southern Baptist minister's wife.

There is such a strong Stepford Wives vibe coming from Fox it's creepy. All four of those people were attractive, middle-aged women with bleach blonde hair cut shoulder length, and the two with legs visible were wearing dresses cut to mid-thigh.

Does Fox only hire anchors with certain features? Or do they pressure their on-air female talent to get their hair styled a particular way?

Well this sure has all the hallmarks of turning into a really dumb discussion. Carry on.
 
2014-02-07 03:49:21 PM  
Is she suggesting the government should step in?  Dictate a private business' decisions?  Perhaps through some sort of regulation?

That really does perfectly illustrate how people with functioning neurons perceive Fox and Friends vs. their fans, doesn't it?

I went to Hobby Lobby this morning only to discover that they're not selling cigarettes either.

Thanks for nothing Obama.

2014-02-07 04:57:39 PM  
I'm outraged enough that, come fall, I will be boycotting the purchase of cigarettes at CVS... FOREVER.  Those Obama-loving dicks just lost a customer, bud.

Does it hurt to be this obtuse, subby?

Look, CVS is a private industry and can do whatever the heck it wants. Yeah, great. Nice liberal talking point, you guys are doing well at spreading that around. But think about this. Is CVS *really* doing what it wants? Or is it only doing what the government wants it to want to do?

Think about that. See, it would be one thing if CVS woke up one day and said, "You know, let's not sell cigarettes anymore." That right there would be the invisible hand of the free market, stubbing out its last smoke, responsibly discarding of the cigarette butt, and switching over to the patch or maybe opening up some Nicotine gum, which by the way is available at most CVS pharmacies. But what if CVS woke up one morning in its bed and found President Obama sitting atop its chest, dusky with anger, menacing eyes and teeth afire with hate. I hate cigarettes, he might hiss to them, and perhaps he'd curl a hand around CVS's throat. I've been trying to quit for years and Michelle won't stop giving me hell. But you keep selling them, don't you?

Imagine how shaken this might leave CVS. And then imagine if the very next week Obama goes and invents Obamacare, where government agents now get to decide whether you can have life-saving surgery based on whether you're old or a Republican or a smoker. What is CVS supposed to do? Flout a direct warning from the president? They run a pharmacy; what if he directs Obamacare Agents to not allow any prescriptions to be filled from CVS? What if he labels CVS as a terrorist organization for continuing to sell cigarettes? None of these would probably happen, of course, but the point is that they could.

And so you have to ask yourself, subby. Is this the free market at work? Is this really what a private company wants? Or is this yet one more iron band of dictatorship slipping into place around us?
 
2014-02-07 05:22:17 PM  
Those darned private businesses. They're such scamps when they decide to not sell things to certain people, and such soshulists when they decide to discontinue carrying products they don't want to be associated with, unless of course it's Dixie Chicks albums...
 
2014-02-07 05:24:16 PM

I can't wait for Fox to start a serious discussion about the dangerous precedent set by the existence of Obamacare Agents.

I was in a CVS today, and there was still cigarettes behind the counter. Gretchen Carlson is a lying liar who lies, and I bet she's dishonest, too.

WHAT ELSE IS SHE HIDING?

Ummmm...obviously no one at Fox News has been to a Target recently...Every Target I have been in, hasn't sold Tobbacco products.

Well, I went to the Fox News Store (yea, that's a thing) and they apparently don't sell cigarettes. I'm emailing Gretchen Carlson. I'm confused about this and can't really trust anyone else to clear it up for me.

What sad is that kind of image engineering works so well on the people who watch FOX News. People who grew up with the boob tube in the 50s have this simple trust that everything it shows you is God's Own Truth.
