"Maybe the secret is I know how to satisfy a woman. Has that ever occurred to you?" Wallace replied. He went on to say that "if I had my own pad and was a bachelor in New York, I wouldn't be lonely. It'd be party night."

A few minutes later, Wallace asked Gallagher why he was so "lonely" in New York, and told him to call one of the "advertisements for, like, gentleman's clubs and escort services."

"I'm not going to a gentleman's club," Gallagher said, "Are you crazy?"

"Because you're not a man," Wallace said.



Someone commented on him saying this so I looked it up. What a douche. He seems to think he's very desirable.

Uhhhhhhh...o-kay. Thanks for sharing, Wallace . That's kind of odd to hear that coming from him, 'cause from what I've seen of him in interviews, I wouldn't expect him to come off like that.

Such strange people that work at that station.

In an interview, Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes told The Daily Beast's Howard Kurtz that he thinks President Obama is a far-left socialist.

"The president has not been very successful," Ailes said. "He just got kicked from Mumbai to South Korea, and he came home and attacked Republicans for it. He had to be told by the French and the Germans that his socialism was too far left for them to deal with."

He also said that Obama "just has a different belief system than most Americans."

The interview is filled with revealing moments. Ailes also claims not to have known about Fox News parent company News Corp's $1 million donation to the Republican Governor's Association. He said Rupert Murdoch told him, "I hope that didn't cause you any problems."

Ailes also told Kurtz that he personally told Fox News staffers to ignore the story of Keith Olbermann's suspension, and mounted a spirited defense of Glenn Beck, who has been weathering heavy criticism from progressive and Jewish groups for his attacks on George Soros.

Referring to Beck's discussion of Soros' experiences during the Holocaust, Ailes said that the host had only been trying to raise questions about Soros' character, and complained that there are some "left-wing rabbis who basically don't think that anybody can ever use word, Holocaust, on the air."

Why would Barack Obama even want to be a socialist? Democracy has been very good to him.

Anyone who thinks Obama is a socialist is an idiot.

People who don't know what they are talking about (and some who do) throw around socialist, liberal, communist, fascist, etc without knowing what they really mean. Whatever comes down the fax line with the talking points, you know?

Oh, I know. I'm posting out loud to myself for no apparent reason.

The right sucks, is my point.

From the second, just-released interview in that series: Ailes on NPR--
Quote:
“They are, of course, Nazis. They have a kind of Nazi attitude. They are the left wing of Nazism. These guys don’t want any other point of view. They don’t even feel guilty using tax dollars to spout their propaganda.”
Well, duh! I mean, Soros is one of their biggest donors, and according to Glenn Beck, Soros was a Nazi as a kid himself!



Ailes knows perfectly well what socialism and fascism really are.

Ya know, for someone who rails against Nazism, Beck sure seems to know a hell of a lot about Nazis, and who is and isn't one.

Ooh, did I just start a conspiracy theory ?

But of course. Seriously, am I the only one who wants to send Ailes and Beck and the people at Fox News and the leaders of the Tea Party and so on dictionaries, with those words highlighted?

This part made me laugh out loud:

Quote:

Let’s get off Pop for a bit. Let’s get on to God. What’s God like, Colton? Apparently, he passed up a great basketball career to mind the metaphysical completeness of all known and unknown matter.

“Yeah,” Colton says. “He can actually fit the entire world into his hands.”

At this point, even Gretchen Carlson seems like she’s beginning to have doubts.

“Wow,” she says, after an embarrassed pause. “What about Jesus?”

“Well, Jesus, he had a rough but kind face, sea-blue eyes and a smile that lit up the heavens,” Colton says, which coincidentally sounds a lot like Jesus’s Match.com profile.

It’s also reassuring to know that Jesus is a Boston Celtics fan.

Biased and liars...

As someone who just read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, that just makes me want to cry.

It makes me wonder where this country would stand politically if the lies were somehow magically erased?

But it doesn't seem to matter to some folks. This is something I've been thinking about a lot lately and been wanting to start a thread about it but just haven't had time to really hash out my thoughts or find any information about it.

I've been wondering if facts really matter... I wonder about the pschology of it. Here's what I'm talking about, a person believes this, you can show them facts that say it's objectively that, yet no matter what they will believe this.

There's plenty of examples here in FYM and I don't want to get into that, but I think we all know someone like this. I'm not talking about religious views or the political grays of the world, I'm talking about cold hard facts. I know someone who keeps referencing this "law", but this law does not exist. They can't show me the written law, and I can only do so much to prove that something made up doesn't exist. Yet for years this person will keep referencing this law. They've never seen it in writing, they can't find any evidence that it exists, but they heard it somewhere years ago so they are hanging on to it...

Is it just due to bias, is it because it falls in line with what they've heard all their life, or is it just willful ignorance?
