The despair of defeated scoundrels is clearly no respecter of the bounds of taste, common sense, or even historical accuracy:
Ted Turner called FOX an arm of the Bush administration and compared FOXNEWS’s popularity to Hitler’s popular election to run Germany before WWII.
Ted, Hitler wasn’t actually elected chancellor of Germany, you blatherskite. And as for being an arm of the Bush admin, well, that beats being an arm of Saddam’s, as CNN in effect was for a long, long time there. I just wish people would stop referring to the yammering dickweed Turner as “the mouth of the South.” If that ultra-liberal carpetbagger ever tried to hang out with any real Southerners, they’d most likely beat his ass like a drum just for “Captain Planet” alone. Fox’s priceless response to the loser:
A FOXNEWS spokesperson responded: “Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network and now his mind — we wish him well.”
And speaking of priceless responses to a bunch of sore losers, try this one on for size:
On the Senate floor today, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., suggested Democrats are sore losers. Rice had enough votes to win confirmation, as even her Democratic critics acknowledge, McCain said.
“So I wonder why we are starting this new Congress with a protracted debate about a foregone conclusion,” McCain said. Since Rice is qualified for the job, he said, “I can only conclude that we are doing this for no other reason than because of lingering bitterness over the outcome of the election.”
