Credit Where Credit Is Due

In two moves that surprised the hell out of me, Fox “News” personalities Chris Wallace and Brian Kilmeade took serious umbrage with their co-workers’ week-long attempt to cast Barack Obama in the most negative light possible following the racial dust-up over the senator’s relationship with firebrand preacher Jeremiah Wright.

In fact, during today’s “Fox & Friends,” Kilmeade grew so exasperated with co-hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson while trying to explain the proper context of Obama having referred during a radio interview to his white grandmother as a “typical white person” that he walked off set as both Doocy and Carlson laughed at him behind his back.

Secondly, I have to give Fox anchor Chris Wallace equal credit for calling out these same two morons during the same "F&F" broadcast, calling their day’s show “two hours of Obama bashing.”

So to both Mr. Kilmeade and Mr. Wallace: well done, gentlemen.

Finally, word came today from Pastor-- and recent John McCain endorser--Rev. John Hagee, he of notorious slurs versus gays, Catholics, and Jews (among others), that it was McCain who requested Hagee’s public seal of approval (despite his fiery reputation), not the other way around.

I’ll be over here in the corner holding my breath waiting for Sean Hannity to pounce on this story in the interest of being “fair & balanced” after all but accusing Obama of racism and anti-Semitism this week over his relationship with Jeremiah Wright.
