What Sucks...The 1/2 Hour News Hour
This is one of the worst things I have ever seen and I saw “Stepmom” in the theater.
I know this hit yesterday so forgive me for coming in late but the Fox News Channel is trying to do a version of The Daily Show for conservatives and holy shit does it blow.
As piss-poor as this is, and it is piss-poor, these guys face an uphill battle. This Fox New/ Neo-con conservatism is inherently unfunny. It’s like trying to laugh with your landlord or credit card company.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s easy to laugh at neo-cons, but very hard to laugh with them. I wish it wasn’t. It would help if they were funnier. I wish I could say “After 9-11 you took advantage of America’s fear and fabricated a connection between Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda to justify an invasion into Iraq which lead to the death of over 3000 US troops…quick, tell me a funny joke!”
Plus look at the clip they leaked from the show. 1st off- this is what they’re leaking? Yeesh. Nice Obama joke by the way. The guy sets it up by saying that only 8 percent of Americans are concerned by the fact that Obama’s middle name is “Hussein”. I have to say that number seems a little high. Who gives a shit- why do you keep mentioning it with the “weird name fascination” usually reserved for names such as “Dick Armey”. Now there’s a fucked up name that can be snickered at every time its mentioned. The guy’s name is like an Army of Dicks! Hilarious.
Check out the crowd shots in that video if you get a second. That’s a scene in America? Really? Looks like the Haitian people from 1984 are falling in love Obama too.
The whole thing is a mess – there’s clearly a laugh track which is common enough, but listen to it closely- those are only white laughs, aren’t they?
How’d they do that? Very creepy.
