In one fell swoop, you get a nickname for protestors, a slap in the face to gay people, and an implication that Obama is Muslim. Go GOP!

Well, if we really want to turn this back on her, one could argue that denying a certain portion of the population equal rights doesn't exactly scream "free country", but hey...

That is one sad, disjointed, pathetic excuse for an argument there. She went off in, like, five different directions. Consistency and logic are your friends, dear.

A Fox News website has picked up a hoax story about an Islamic council in Pakistan protesting the use of padded and colorful bras and presented it as fact. The story was illustrated with a picture of a woman's mid-section and carried the headline "Pakistan: Islamic Clerics Protest Women Wearing Padded Bras as 'Devil’s Cushions.'" (UPDATE 9:30: Fox has now pulled the story. See the original here.) The lead of the Fox Nation story, which sources the piece to the Indian news website sify.com, reads:
The Council of Islamic Ideology in Pakistan has protested the use of padded and colourful bras by Muslim women, and recommended that Pakistani Muslim researchers should try to invent an innerwear that makes female assets unnoticeable.
...The sify.com story linked by Fox cites a "report" from yet another site called Roznama Jawani...a Pakistani version of The Onion, featuring such stories as "Karachi Preparing a Huge Ass Bat to Beat the Shit Out of Kamran Akmal," "Altaf Hussain Challenges Imran Khan to a Rap Battle to Settle Differences," and "Man From Peshawar Sues Red Bull. Says he has no wings!" The bra story on Roznama Jawani features a crudely photoshopped image of an Islamic council meeting with a large sign that says, "Future of Padded Bras." The story quotes an anti-padded bra protester saying that "Padded bras are evil as they make the breasts look bigger and perky...Only devil women show off private parts."
I was already laughing as soon as I read the "sourced to sify.com" part, but discovering that satire site was even better...

Actually, I was hoping people might enjoy a chuckle over a lighthearted story about a news network's gaffe. Hope dies hard, eh.

Fox News map of nuclear power plants in Japan.

You'll notice one on there called "Shibuyaeggman." Problem is, it doesn't exist.

There is however, in the Shibuya district of Tokyo, a nightclub called the Eggman. They've got it in the right spot on the map too.

I'm not even sure how they make the mistakes they make.

On his first day back from vacation, Glenn Beck addressed the earthquake in Japan, and said he thinks that it could be a "message [is] being sent" by God.

Speaking on his radio show Monday, Beck said, "I'm not saying God is, you know, causing earthquakes," before quickly adding, "I'm not not saying that either."

He then said that whatever one called God, "there's a message being sent. And that is, 'Hey, you know that stuff we're doing? Not really working out real well. Maybe we should stop doing some of it.' I'm just saying."

I'd love to see his blackboard analysis of this one.

Well, that's a crystal clear message. That stuff we're doing? Oooooh, of course! That stuff. Gotcha, God. Thanks for sending Glenn Beck to set us straight.

Alright, gang. I think it's high time we stopped doing that stuff. Seriously, cut it out.

haha! that is the most cautious and ass-covering way ever conceived to basically say exactly what Pat Robertson said after Katrina.

I was going to comment on it more, but the man really should not be taken seriously

There is precedent here - God was PISSED with the Shaanxi province of China for trying to introduce free healthcare in 1556.

Is G*d pissed at Glenn, I mean wasn't he just diagnosed with macular dystrophy?

If assholes are going to use this kind of logic to scare their sheep, they should know if G*d is happy with them. Obviously he isn't... I'm just saying.

Does Fox News agree?
Is Beck going to be dropped from the channel?

Douchebag network maintains douchebag views.

Film 24/7.

I have reached maximum capacity of outrage over pretty much everything right now. I can't muster anything beyond exhausted sarcasm at the moment.

I should have waited until I was home tonight and had a glass of booze in hand before posting.
