News Roundup for 4/28/10

FOX host interviews lingerie models
According to Sarah Palin, these people hate America

-Headline of the day-
"By 'lamestream media,' did Palin mean Fox News?"

In a mixture of bullshit, idiocy, and craziness, Sean Hannity interviewed Sarah Palin about Arizona's new "Paper please... Macht schnell! Schnell!" law. I guess that's because, as the former governor of Alaska, Caribou Barbie has so much experience with illegal Canadians and keeps an eye on the Russian border from her house. Anyway, she's totally an expert on this because -- let's face it -- she's an expert on everything.

Ha ha! "Lamestream media!"

Of course, they're both way out in the weeds on this. Hannity claims it's just a law that allows police to -- I'm sorry, the stupid is so distracting -- enforce the law, because every statute needs a separate statute allowing police to do something about what the first statute made illegal. You know, like how all the states have a statute declaring murder illegal, then another one that says police need to investigate murders.

Wait, they don't? Then I guess Sean Hannity's just an idiot.

He also claims that it's not about racial profiling, but neglects to mention how the fuck else you're supposed to figure this illegal alien thing out. And police need a reason to check you out? Yeah, ask anyone familiar with "driving while black" about that. If the cops say you forgot a turn signal, you forgot a turn signal -- how the hell is anyone ever going to check?

But the fun part is when Sarah said, "One of the media outlets the other day just was killing me on this one, Sean, where they had a caption across their screen that said Arizona law will make it illegal to be an illegal immigrant? Some bizarre type of headline like that where it was just this illustration that they just don't get it."

You mean like this one?

FOX News runs 'Illegal to be Illegal' headline

Yup, she's right. No good patriotic American should ever watch FOX News again. They just don't get it. The Sarah has spoken.

Sorry Sean. (Media Matters)

I can see how that would be confusing... (Go Comics)

-Bonus HotD-
"Tancredo's Conspiracy Theory: Obama Hides His Birth Certificate To Stir Up The Right And Make Us Look Crazy."

Yeah, that's it Tom. It's not crazy-assed, paranoid conspiracy theories about Obama that make you look like a bunch of nuts, it's Obama screwing with you.

Because that's not a crazy-assed, paranoid conspiracy theory at all. (Think Progress)
