The militant halfwits of Fox & Friends are storied in legend and song for promoting crackpot stories of madrassa raised Barack Obama and other smears.
But what if all they are is dim?
Evidence for the affirmative: Fox & Friends confusing abolitionist Frederick Douglas with Abraham Lincoln sparing partner Stephen Douglas. You can see an MSNBC clip of the buffoonery here.

Historic Real Estate Inc. – so steeped in, um, something, is building the weirdest incarnation yet of one man’s obsession with gigundus presidential heads.
David Adickes‘s gift to the nation is his obsession with immense busts of our revered former leaders. He already has theme parks centered on these First Oddities in South Dakota and Virginia, but it will be so much nicer with tour boats. And shopping. Somehow the mystery of Easter Island paired with the likes of Marvin Van Buren will draw swarms of Cinnabon munchers.
Adickes’s anything to draw a crowd spirit has already led to the heads use as backdrop to a
rap video. Think water ballet!
The intrepid vision questers at Fast Company have encountered a truly lost world, one where a youthful Richard Nixon painted the golden vision of a slacker tomorrow.
“We see the time not too far distant when we can have a four-day work week and family life will be even more fully enjoyed by every American . . . These are not dreams or idle boasts—they are simple projections of the gains we have made in the last four years.”
Time reports that Nixon could not name this beckoning future, but the Vice President was clearly high on his own fumes:
“…whatever it is, it is something new and far better than anything the world has ever seen.”
