Fox News has taken on a lot of popular figures over the years, mostly in politics.
But they went totally over the line when they attacked my beloved Muppets.
Yes, showing that they have no depths to which they won’t sink, the network recently had on a guest named Dan Gainor of the ultra-conservative Media Research Center, and he proceeded to trash the latest Muppets movie, along with host Eric Bolling.
Bolling compared the movie’s storyline and message (about the Muppets trying to save their old studio from a greedy rich Texas oil baron) to a certain rather large Asian nation.
“We’re teaching our kids class warfare. Where are we, Communist China?” Bolling said.
Then his guest chimed in: “It’s amazing how far the left will go just to stop – to manipulate your kids,” Gainor said, “to convince them – to give them the anti-corporate message.”
Insane, right? Well, my man Kermit and Miss Piggy have fired back in the video below.
Rock on, my little green friend!
**Well, as expected my favorite Elastic Man politician, Willard “Mitt” Romney, won my old state of Florida easily in the GOP primary Tuesday night. I wasn’t surprised; he flooded the state with attack ads, and Fla. Republicans hate Obama intensely, and want to nominate someone who’ll beat him.
I still have hopes this race will go awhile; if Mr. thrice-married (Newt) can just hang in there and keep raising money from the Anybody but New club, and Ron Paul maybe does well in the caucuses, we can still have plenty of fun with this race over the next few months.
Line of the night via Twitter, from Wyatt Stewart: “Sources in Florida tell me Morty Seinfeld will win the Del Boca Vista condo board elections.”
**And finally, we may already know what the best Super Bowl commerical will be. Honda has gotten Matthew Broderick to reprise his Ferris Bueller role with this fabulous homage to the classic movie. I love it.
