Oh my, my. Those rascals over at FAUX NEWS are offended.

They are simply disgusted by the release of t-shirts supporting President Obama’s re-election which say, “Health Reform Still a BFD.”

The acronym springs from the open-mike comment Joe Biden uttered to the President upon the passage of the reform bill which will help millions of uninsured Americans obtain healthcare.

Todd Starnes called the t-shirts “vulgar.”

“I wouldn’t want… him…{my son} to see daddy in that,” opined co-host Clayton Morris.

Hmmm. Vulgar? Perhaps. However, this feigned outrage over t-shirts is a little late and more than a bit contrived. These shirts came out 2 years ago after Biden said what he said.

And excuse me FOX NATION, since when are you concerned with ATV…all things vulgar?

Were you similarly outraged when Sarah-coudn’t-pick-out-Germany-on-a-map-Palin repeatedly used the vulgar acronym WTF while mocking our President after his State of the Union speech? You betcha…NOT!

Were you offended when Ann-the-soulless-one- Coulter declared that people should “attack” the President’s daughters Sasha and Malia? Not so much.

Were you appalled by Geraldo’s assertion that Trayvon Martin being stalked and gunned down was as much his own fault for wearing a hoodie as George Zimmerman’s? Feh.

Were you aghast when FOX completely lied for days when they said the cost of Obamacare doubled from preliminary estimates, totally miscalculating the results? Uh-uh.

Were you startled that Bill O’Reilly dismissed a thoroughly racist chant toward a Puerto-Rican college player as just a “sporting arena chant”? Lemme guess…nope.

Were you annoyed that FOX used completely bogus charts and analysis to depict false economic information to their viewers, and do this on a fairly regular basis with impunity? I’m going out on a limb here…probably not.

Were you ever irritated that pundits like Sean Hannity consistently present false information to FOX viewers as “fact” and the sheep gobble it up? Nevah!

Here’s what offends me.

I’m pretty offended by the existence of FOX News .

I’m pretty offended that Americans watch the complete crap they produce and think they are actually engaging in anything remotely “fair and balanced” and that they are not either distorting the facts or making up lies out of whole cloth.

I’m pretty offended that it has been shown that FOX News viewers are the most misinformed citizens in the country…and they vote.

If you have not figured out by now that Roger Ailes has admitted, and many others have admitted as well, that this is nothing more than a GOP vehicle to brainwash the masses under a guise of the “fair and balanced” logo, then seriously, I have the proverbial bridge to sell you.

FOX is a complete assault to the senses. They trot out scum like Bill O’Reilly who settled out of court and will never allow the facts to come out about a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him. When he is losing an argument on his show, he attempts to out-shout people and ridicule their views until he gets his way. That’s offensive.

They gave someone a forum, Glenn Beck, allowing him to concoct one bizarre conspiracy theory after another. That’s offensive.

Check out this amazing piece from Rolling Stone that chronicled one day in FOX history. It details the blow-by-blow and show-by-show all out assault on President Obama a day after his State of the Union speech in 2011.

If you read that and didn’t catch your jaw hitting the floor by the end then you are probably a conservative. I mean, that was vulgar with a capital V.

Look, I couldn’t care less if people want to watch a station that has a right-wing bias. There is nothing at all wrong with that.

However, I am disgusted by the way that FOX disguises OPINIONS AS FACTS.

I’m alarmed that FOX blatantly lies about many, many things on many, many occasions and has for many, many years.

I’m stunned that they get away with it.

I’m sickened that people are seriously that gullible.

FOX News…Fear-mongering and mis-informing since 1997.

Now that’s a BFD.

I mean…WTF? Right Sarah?
