Anyone remember the talking heads over at Fox showing the same outrage over drunken Dick Cheney shooting his hunting buddy in the face? Didn't think so. Fox proves once again that they can find a reason to crank up the feigned outrage machine over almost anything as long as you're a Democrat.
From Think Progress -- Fox News Guest Attacks Hillary: It’s As If She Was Auditioning For ‘The Jersey Shore’:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is having quite a month. After a photo of her spawned its own internet sensation, new images from a nightlife hotspot in Colombia that show Clinton sipping on a beer and dancing have ignited a fresh wave of gossipy commentary.
The New York Post ran one photo on its front page under the banner headline “Swillary,” apparently upset that she imbibes the same liquid as much of the rest of humanity.
But perhaps the best reaction to the shocking news that Hillary Clinton can have a good time goes to Nile Gardiner from the Heritage Foundation, who appeared on the Fox News show Your World with Neil Cavuto to attack Clinton for “embarrassing” herself:
Hillary Clinton is a public servant, she’s out to serve the American people, to advance U.S. interests. And I think that conducting herself in this way, as a senior U.S. official on the world stage, doesn’t advance American interests in any way. In fact its downright embarrassing. It’s as though she’s auditioning for the sixth series of Jersey Shore rather than representing America on the world stage as the Secretary of State.
As Adam noted, they did bring in GOP strategist Dee Dee Benkie who defended Clinton and said she ought to be allowed to have a few beers after work and unwind if she wanted to. Uncle Rupert just gave us a taste of the kind of stupidity we'd be in for if Clinton would change her mind and ever run for president.
