Republicans Embrace New Strategy: Whining

Republican losers Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum complained that Fox News likes Mitt Romney better than them. Both have threatened to defriend Fox News from their Facebook pages and to never ever speak to Fox News ever again — not EVER.

Washington  |  In a development that has Democrats doing happy dances through the halls of Congress, Republican crybabies Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum recently complained that Fox News is biased against them.

“I am shocked – shocked – to find out Fox News is biased!”

Most Americans were as shocked by the charge of Fox bias as Claude Rains’ character in Casablanca was to find out there was gambling at Rick’s Café.

For Republicans, the charge of bias has a long and rich history. It principally stems from their resentment of the news media accurately reporting what they say and do or asking simple questions for which the candidates have no coherent answers.

When Katie Couric asked Sarah Palin what newspaper and magazines the VP candidate read, Palin was unable to name even one. Fox News immediately characterized the interview as a “hatchet job.”

But this case, Santorum and Gingrich have complained that their former employer Fox News has taken the unthinkably biased position of promoting the only Republican who has even a ghost of a chance of giving President Obama a run for his money. Gingrich called Fox’s coverage “biased” and “distorted.” Santorum called “them shills for Romney.”

Asked to comment on the allegations, former Nixon operative and Fox News President Roger Ailes would only say, “Money talks. Bullshit walks.”

  1. Whiining is hardly new to Republican strategies, but they usually take great pains to ensure that it isn’t called that.

    • You are correct, sir. Whining is a deeply respected and often observed Republican value, Nixon being their greatest Whiner-in-Chief. That they don’t call it whining is not so surprising, but whining it is and whining it shall always be, don’t you agree, sir? They will simply never get over the fact that Franklin D. Roosevelt existed and that they will never, ever find his equal.
