Just when you think they can't possibly become a bigger cariacature than they are, FOX News has declared a "War on Halloween." Seriously.

First thing in the morning, FOX & Friends' Steve Doocy went on a semi-intelligible (but still unintelligent) rant about how some school didn't let kids come to school in costume so as to not offend a "coven of witches".

Then on Hannity & Colmes, Field Marshall er, host Sean Hannity posited what has to be the most stupid theory to come out of his mouth since well....yesterday: Halloween teaches kids to ask for a handout, so therefore, it's teaching them to be liberals.

Media Matters asks if Hannity is channelling The Onion now.

Can you help us out?
