Props to Fox & Friends for finding something to talk about on this slow news day: Downton Abbey, the popular British upstairs/downstairs saga that runs on the (publicly funded) PBS network, might be the best weapon conservatives have in popular culture today!
According to maybe-British person Stuart Varney, the show is a massive blow to the politics of the left-leaning liberals who love it because the characters are rich…and nice. “Downton Abbey poses a threat to the left, does it not, Brian,” Ms. Varney asks a thoroughly confused Brian Kilmeade. “The left says we got to hate these people, but popular America watches a show that says ‘These people are okay!’”
The Santa Clause
For all their talk about how “confusing” it is for children to see gay characters on television (lest they grow up thinking that was normal), Fox & Friends had no qualms about bringing a very busy Santa Claus all the way down from the North Pole to explain why the liberal media is waging a war against Christmas.
Which just makes you wonder … who is this shtick for? (Besides Brian Kilmeade, of course.)
Politico White House correspondent Joe Williams was suspended over remarks he made on MSNBC last night, according to Politico.
Discussing why Mitt Romney appears so frequently on the Fox News program Fox and Friends—the subject of a New York Times story yesterday—on MSNBC’s Martin Bashir, Mr. Williams said that Governor Romney is comfortable with people who are like him.
“They’re like him,” he said. “They’re white folks who are very much relaxed in their own company.”
