Fair UND Balanced Homie

Ah, FoxNews, where journalism is in a permanent vegetative state, and employs albino freakshow John Gibson:

I think Jeb Bush should give serious thought to storming the Bastille.

By that I mean he should think about telling his cops to go over to Terri Schiavo's (search) hospice, go inside, put her on a gurney and load her into an ambulance. They could take her to a hospital, revive her, and reattach her feeding tube. It wouldn't save Terri exactly; she'd still be in the same rotten shape she was in before they disconnected the feeding tube.

But the point is, the temple of the law is so sacrosanct that an occasional chief executive cannot flaunt it once in a while, sort of drop his drawers on the courthouse steps and moon the judges, as a way to protest the complete disregard courts and judges have shown here, in this case, for facts outside the law.

You know at a real news station, having one of your purported news reporters advocate breaking the law would get one punished.

But on FoxNews, Colmes will bring him a hot doughnut and coffee*
