Faux News Chief Jokes That Obama's a Terrorist

Faux News and other right wing sources have been making a big deal of Barack Obama's middle name- Hussein. For a while, they were even spinning a liethat he'd attended a Madrassa. Now, Faux news Chairman Roger Ailes makes a "funny" about Obama actually being a terrorist. Charming way to continue the meme. Media Bistro has the text:
And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don't know if it's true that President Bush called Musharraf and said, 'Why can't we catch this guy?'
He had already slimed the Clintons:
It is true that just in the last two weeks Hillary Clinton has had over 200 phone calls telling her in order to win the presidency she must stay on the road for the next two years. It is not true they were all from Bill.
Har dee har.

The good news is that the Democrats in Nevada came to their senses and decided to cancel a planned Faux News-hosted Presidential Primary Debate. Faux has been known to use such debates to promote their own spin against the Dems. It's long been past time for Dems to stop acting like Faux is a legitimate news source rather than a GOP propaganda machine.
