Shep Smith is far too good for Fox 'News'

Shep Smith is far, far too good for Fox 'News.' Because this is also Fox (and much more typical):
Dr. Keith Ablow, a member of the Fox News Medical A-Team, on Tuesday said that Obama won't protect Americans from Ebola because "his affinities" are with Africa, not the U.S. "He's their leader." ...

“How can you protect a country you don't like? Why would you?" Ablow asked.

He then dove into Obama's "psyche" and explained what Obama is thinking right now.

"You miserable people have destroyed so much in the world in terms of good things, and now you're going to build a wall? Really? To insulate yourself from things that are devastating other nations when your gains are ill-gotten?" Ablow asked, pretending to be Obama.

Ablow said that even though American citizens elected Obama, he isn't our leader because "his affinities, his affiliations are with them, not us." ...

He also compared Obama to Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein while claiming that Americans elected Obama because he hates the U.S.

"I think that we became psychologically mired in a form of national Stockholm Syndrome," Ablow said. "We said to ourselves, and the world, 'Look at this guy. We're going to elect this guy president. Why would you attack us? We're not even voting for somebody who likes us. This guy, who has names very similar to two of our archenemies, Osama, well, Obama. And Hussein. Hussein. Surely you won't attack us now because we've got a shield here of a guy who, as the leader of our country says we're bad.'"

Get that? Our president hates America, so he's not going to protect us from the Ebola virus. And how do we know this? Well, it's because his name is "very similar to two of our archenemies."

And yeah, we elected Barack Obama - twice - because he hates America. Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

No, this isn't a parody, though it's hard to tell the difference, isn't it? His name? Note, too, that President Obama tracked down and killed Osama bin Laden, the one "archenemy" who actually attacked America. (Saddam Hussein was our ally for years, and never attacked America. Of course, he was also dead before Barack Obama was even elected president.)

Sadly, this is more typical of the people on Fox than Shep Smith.

Roger Ailes stands outside Shep Smith's cubicle:

"Smith, my office....NOW!!"

I don't know what kind of response he's getting within Fox 'News,' but other right-wing crazies certainly aren't happy with him. Bryan Fischer, for example, is claiming that Smith is a gay liberal trying to support Obama in order to further the "homosexual agenda."

Hmm,... it's surprising that he didn't also work Benghazi in there somewhere, isn't it? Or imply that Shep Smith is secretly African-American?
