Banana Republicanism

This ad runs as a half-page spread every morning in the Wall Street Journal print edition. It never ceases to amuse. Not only did these guys literally invent the idea of a deliberately biased media outlet, but then they actually brought into being MSNBC as a reaction to their over-reaction-ary politics, a rather ingenious feat of self-fulfilling marketing. On top of that I love the graphic -- fucking double-america on acid, motherfucker! yeah! who would jesus shoot!?

Yeah, it also cracked me up that they couldn't quite figure out which was a red state and which a blue. I love the guys at Fox.
