106. Fine quote
"Fox News is promoting racism and has been since Obama became a serious candidate for president. Some of them are taking it personally that a Black man had to audacity to challenge, much less best their great white hope of a "military hero". That scares them because they know certain segments of the population (read "macho authoritarian white males") are no longer guaranteed superiority. And some of them (Beck, Hannity, and O'Really) have nothing else to recommend themselves with. "

Sorry to say, this also plays to macho white females...thus the love of Palin.
