Some days it's just too easy

If your breathing apparatus is adjusted for the sort of planet on which Laura Ingraham is an "analyst," today's Big Kenyan Perfidy Tale is probably no surprise to you:

GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: The White House is fuming at the NRA for using the president's children in its latest ad, but today President Obama surrounded himself with other people's children for his gun control announcement. So is there a double standard here or not?

We spoke with Fox News analyst Laura Ingraham.

...  VAN SUSTEREN: OK, today the president had a press conference. He had the children behind him. Some...

INGRAHAM: Wallpaper children, yes. It's -- it's always quite a dramatic show when the president wants to put on a choreographed moment. And obviously, these kids suffered enormously. Their parents brought them. But I don't know, something about involving children in a conversation about guns and murder to me seems -- that's a tough one.

You can tell Fox is fair 'n' balanced because it gives both sides: "Is there a double standard here or not?" So for the real story, you need to keep an eye on the Drudge Report, which dutifully curates such gems as "Other tyrants who have used children as props," from the stellar InfoWars site:

Obama’s shameless exploitation of children as set pieces is hardly new or original. In fact, tyrants and dictators have used kids as props down through the ages.
Here are a few more recent examples:

Well, stop the press. It's Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Fidel, Kim and Chavez, followed by "
Dictator Obama Exploiting the Children for Executive Action on Gun Control."

Some days it really is just too easy, you know?
