Sometimes it's just too easy

Hey, if you don't visit the comics section very often, be sure you check out the newly added "The Fox Nation," which is sort of like -- oh, imagine Fox News without its usual high levels of editing prowess and its veneer of adherence to actual journalistic norms. You'll get something like the centerpiece captured here: "Why does he smile at dictators?"

Got me there, Fox Nation! Because -- uh, it seemed like such a good idea at the time?

I think that's the real fun of News Corporation and all its affiliated products. To play Culture Wars the way Fox and its friends do, you really have to have the attention span of a garden slug. If you don't remember the characters in the photo at right, it's the guy who ended the Cold War, shown with a fairly good actor who ended up getting elected president a couple times.

Yeah, well, holding Obama to the standard of a man who called Kim Jung-Il a loathsome toad (loathsome dwarf?) means he's going to fall way above it. Often.

Though Bush did seem to get along with "I call him Vlad" pretty well...
