You know it’s a sad day in Fox-ville when even Joe Scarborough is making fun of your attempts at racial smearing. Yes, America’s Pulse superstar E.D. Hill suggested, in the classic media “Brutus is an honorable man,” deniability fashion, that Michelle and Barack Obama’s campaign victory fist bump was a “terrorist fist jab.” Not just woefully inept, nor merely pathetically clueless, this was a thinly veiled attempt to link the words “terrorist” and “Obama” together ever closer.
But thankfully, no one in the media seems to be having any of it.
The media has a new fixation, and it’s Obama’s fist bump, or dap, or pound, or whatever you choose to call the handshake he and his wife Michelle exchanged right before his speech claiming the Democratic presidential nomination.
And despite a late apology, it now appears as though Fox’s bad day and bad ratings have become E.D. Hill’s bad news, as she’s been removed from her post a day later. What a shame the gambit to smear Obama backfired for Fox. Does E.D. stand for “Electoral Disfunction?”
