Oh my, my, my. The Fox & Friends crew got very flustered over President Obama's gentle swipe at them yesterday. Brian Kilmeade was so rattled he asked whether or not the president was "punching down" by calling Fox News out by name.

As if he doesn't have a zillion reasons to do it. Of course it's punching down, but that doesn't mean it didn't feel good to those of us who put up with their constant squealing over people having access to health care.

Chris Wallace was there to reassure them that it was totally fine for the president to jab at them, noting that there are worse things, like not being noticed at all. Frankly, I would love for everyone not to notice Fox News, but they cry too loudly to ignore them entirely.

Finally, Wallace told them to "stop being crybabies" and accept it as a "badge of honor."

Oh, that won't happen. They'd never accept a badge of honor from the Kenyan usurper, after all.

Can you help us out?
