Many on Fox-TV are manifesting symptoms of post-election Schadenfreude or "Foxenfreude," eagerly anticipating the ways Obama might fail, unable to wait for an actual slip-up.
Bill O'Reilly, the leader of the pack, has been relentlessly inviting guests into his so-called "spin-free zone" to poke away at Obama's every policy and cabinet selection. Ironically, these pundits tend to be the same ones who accused liberals of rooting against our country and being anti-American for questioning the validity of the war in Iraq or challenging the torture of prisoners.
It's worth noting that we didn't charge out of the gate to undermine W. during his transition period. We waited for him to screw up (his area of expertise) before calling him on it.
With almost two more months of air time to fill, O'Reilly may have to cast a wider net, in which case future shows will likely include interviews with right wing:
-Child psychologists attesting to the likelihood of the Obama girls, however adorable now, turning into rebellious teenagers as a result of being compelled to make their own beds while living in The White House.
-Dog trainers anticipating that pets whose poop is picked up by the children in a family will become confused and neurotic, perhaps even attacking foreign visitors and having to be euthenized;
-Educators citing that the Quaker, non-competitive atmosphere of Sidwell Friends will discourage Malia and Sasha, who will be self-satisfied and never develop leadership skills, therefore limited to careers as unpaid interns;
-Housekeepers balking that having children doing chores cuts into their jobs and threatens the economy of the country.
