So this week Fox News managed to insult women and be unwittingly racist in the same segment, so much so that one member of the panel decided to "shut that whole thing down" and "move right along, nothing to see here" the conversation. Spectacular.
Then they get all hysterical about President Obama for awkwardly saluting members of the U.S. armed forces with a coffee cup in his hand, yet somehow I don't recall any outrage when former (thank FSM) President Bush awkwardly saluted members of the armed forces with a dog in his arm on more than one occasion.
One cable "news" channel or other today asked why it is that Attorney General Eric Holder, who announced he will be stepping down, is and has been receiving so much ire from Fox News and its viewers. Could it be the same reason they rail against President Obama for daring to breathe?
See, Obama is different. He is "other." He had his photo taken outdoors! What nerve!
Moving right along...

A bunch of clips from the BBC in the late 70s of some seminal punk rock bands (Sex Pistols, Siouxsie & The Banshees), some not-so-punk rock bands (Elvis Costello who steals the show, Nick Lowe), and a poet. With a few late 70s commercials. It's great:
