Bill O'Reilly and Laura Ingraham had an on-air dust-up over one of O'Reilly's apparent character flaw, namely his lack of blind vehement hatred for anyone named Obama…
Ingraham: I'm gushing over your gushing last night about the Christmas party. I'm still trying to get over that.
O'Reilly: Wait, a minute. I'm going to call you — I'm calling you out on this…. I thought [Michelle Obama] was very nice at the party… You are a blind ideologue who even if somebody's nice to you, won't admit it because you're talking about a Kool-aid drinker… You have an IV attached to your arm on the Kool-aid.
When Bill O'Reilly is one of the most reasonable talking heads on your new network, it means you're either an incredible failure or an incredible success, depending upon what your long-term goals are.
Roger Ailes — I think it's safe to say — is a huge, huge success.

The 2012 GOP primaries keep looking hilariouser and hilariouser…
Ex-CNNer Lou Dobbs tells WTOP this morning that he feels "liberated and emancipated" since leaving the network — and he's not ruling out the possibility of running for president in 2012…
"For the first time I'm actually listening to [people who want him to run for office]. … I don't think I have the nature for it. … But we've got to do something for this country."
Oh man, can you even imagine? Dobbs vs. Palin vs. Giuliani vs. Ailes vs. Huckabee vs. Romney? What other ridiculous people can we throw in there? Is Chewbacca planning a run? I think he'd do well in the current Republican climate.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! Ha!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha…
Friends and associates are encouraging Fox News chief Roger Ailes to jump into the political arena for real by running for president in 2012, top sources tell POLITICO.
"Ailes knows how to frame an issue better than anybody, and that's what we need now," says one Ailes friend who is encouraging the Fox founder, chairman and CEO to seek the Republican nomination to run against President Barack Obama…
Frank Luntz, the well-known Republican pollster, said Ailes could be a force if he makes the run. "I have known Roger Ailes for 29 years," says Luntz. "No one knows how to win better than Roger."
Really, "friends and associates"? That's your big idea? Just get the boss to go be president. He'll make things all better everywhere and restore America's fortunes to how they were in its glory days never ago. Why, just look at the bang-up job he's done at changing reality over at Fox!
What do you even say about a thing like that? It's absurdly delusional to the point of (almost) being parody. But it really shows you how frightened and confounded and bereft of ideas the right wing mind is these days.
You just keep thinking, Republican Party. That's what you're good at.

Uh oh! Have you heard? Glenn Beck is unleashing his army of true blue American patriots to go out into the world and drum up some bad news for Obama's picks for Information and Regulatory Czar, FCC Diversity Czar and Energy Czar…
Watch Dogs: FIND EVERYTHING YOU CAN ON CASS SUNSTEIN, MARK LLOYD AND CAROL BROWNER. Do not link before burning to disc.
He's rebelling against a bunch of czars! I've never heard of anything so non-Bolshevik-sounding. Hopefully, he'll draw blood by sometime next month. Then he and his comrades can celebrate their own Red October like real American patriots.
So, what's the progressive movement to do in the face of such brazenly douche-like behavior? Luckily, it has MSNBC's Keith Olbermann around to douche-taliate by taking the high road and asking Americans go out and dig up harmful personal information on Beck as well as other non-government-employees…
I don't know why I've got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, [Beck's radio producer] Stu Burguiere, and [Fox News president] Roger Ailes… Tuesday we will expand this to the television audience and have a dedicated email address to accept leads, tips, contacts…
This becomes necessary after this in order to prove various cliches about goose and gander, and to remind everybody to walk softly and carry a big popsicle, and most particularly to save this nation from the Oligarhy of The Stupid.
I can't say exactly why, but this whole thing puts me in mind of that new human centipede movie.
