Score One (Again) for Gesture Politics

It's form above substance. I mean, doesn't it actually look like Roger Ailes was making fun of Bush? Here's what he said, in a joke-laden speech to the Radio and Television News Directors Foundation (RTNDF):
And it is true that Barack Obama is on the move. I don't know if it's true that President Bush called (Pakistani President Pervez) Musharraf and said, 'Why can't we catch this guy?
So for this, the Nevada Democratic Party has gone on a humor strike in protest. Sheesh.

I liked this joke, which came just before the one above:
A man in France was arrested today for using his car to run down a pedestrian. He said he thought it was Osama bin Laden. Ok, it was a mistake, but it still ranks as France's biggest military victory ever.
