Fox News' brilliant election coverage  

4 comments




Seriously, Fox News? America just made history last night by electing Barack Obama as our next president... and your biggest story is Michelle Obama's dress?

Also... notice how negative the Obama stories are. "As Obama Enjoys a Win... a World of Trouble Awaits" "Obama's Promises a Burden?" All of their post-election stories have been like that. And I think they're one of the only news stations still talking about Sarah Palin. Just let it go, Fox, your team didn't win.

What next?

    Seriously, I have been even MORE disappointed in the conservatives than usual because of how they've handled the loss of the election... did they honestly expect that Americans would trudge through eight years of the Bush administration's BS and then sign back up for more of the same? It shouldn't surprise anyone that the majority of people were ready for change.

    But I have seen more dramatic, immature responses from crestfallen conservatives, and it's getting hard to be patient. From "Welcome to the People's Republic of America" to "Life as I know it is over", and now the antics of Fox News... it's like... could you guys BE any more melodramatic? Even McCain himself was able to not be a weenie about it.

    I will definitely keep this in the back of my mind as a reminder of how NOT to act in the future when I don't get what I want.

    WOW. So I went and read the article and it absolutely disgusted me. They praise Michelle for always wearing flat shoes so that she's not taller than Barack. GOD FORBID a woman be taller than her husband and harm his fragile masculinity.

    Uh, and the shout out to Sarah Palin at the end? Barf.

    I'm in the middle of one of the reddest states in the middle of the country--Oklahoma. And the place where I work I have dubbed McCain/Palinville. This morning when I went to work, I knew I would have to quell my celebratory mood. I was cheerful, but polite. However, when two people in our office started in with the racial slurs referring to "fried chicken and watermelon", I looked up from my desk and said, "That's enough! Don't even start that stuff in front of me! I won't tolerate it!" They got all indignant and insisted that I was being "sanctimonious" and took it someplace else.

    I was SO PISSED, I could hear the blood whooshing through my ears.
