Hemmer: A Tool In The Box

Fox is at it again, ala Dan Rather and Swift Boat. They're blanket-covering this idiotic, botched John Kerry joke like it's actually important. It's the most important thing in the world to the Fox News Channel, where Bush/GOP tools Bill Hemmer and Brit Hume are incessantly droning on about it on the air and former Fox man Tony Snow is yapping about it at the White House.

Because this all has little to no real news value -- a botched joke may be worth mentioning, but droning on about it all day, c'mon -- this is obviously about Fox trying to influence the election. The right-wing radio people are on the story too, hell the whole dirty machine is at work. Hannity, Limbaugh, et al.

You think people are really this stupid?
