Like Harry Reid, the fashion gurus at Fox and Friends are not happy with the U.S. Olympic Team's choice of uniform, though unlike the Senate Majority Leader, they're more concerned with sartorial statements than the Chinese provenance of the garments.
"The big question, though, is should the American team be wearing a beret?" co-Friend Steve Doocy pondered. "Why not a baseball cap? Why not a cowboy hat like we had when we went to Calgary? Why not just do something very American and just go topless?"
Why not wear a cheeseburger or a bald eagle? Why not shave an image of Ronald Reagan into the athletes' hair? All valid questions, but it was Lou Dobbs who put the gravity of this issue into perspective…
"Berets are also the signature headgear of socialist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez," the Fox Business host added.
I always knew my distaste for pants had strong historical grounding. Pants were the signature leg wear of Hitler.
As for berets, both Doocy and Dobbs eventually recognized that some Americans already wear berets on a regular basis (see right) without being characterized as homosexual French artistes. Maybe we can rename it the Freedom Helmet and solve this crisis once and for all.
