Quote of the Day

Rick Mercer, a political satirist in Canada, has some advice for the “satirists” at Fox News:

If you’re going to do satire, three of the most important rules are you have to tell the truth, you can’t be a bully and don’t be an asshole. Being a bully is not satire.

This lesson is lost on the right wing; folks like Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Ann Coulter, and Laura Ingraham lose on all counts: they lie, they’re bullies, and they’re assholes.
