"Tell us how you really feel"

I suppose I don't understand conservative humor.

From Raw Story:

Liz Trotta, former New York bureau chief of the Washington Times, unsubtly confused U.S. Senator and presidential candidate Barack Obama with Saudi jihadist and purported 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden... and perhaps placed similar value on their lives on live television.

"For years, the media has told us that Hillary Clinton is the smartest person in the world," Trotta said, "and that's up for grabs now. And the media's catching on to that, as well. The 'vast right-wing conspiracy' blame has been undermined by her evasions, by her outright lies, if I may say; by her pandering, by her race-baiting--and now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Os--Osama--um, uh--Obama. Well, both, if we could..."

Fox News, mining all the humor they can about murdering an American presidential candidate along with a terrorist boogeyman.

Fair and balanced, you know?
