    Bad choice of words to SLAM people with Lupus. What is wrong with you. Apology is needed.

  2. Slicer Says:

    Oh joy, faux outrage on the first comment.

    Fox really is the lupus of news. I’d liken them a bit more to leukemia, myself.

  3. Fox is awful; lupus is awful. What’s the problem?

  4. Ah, got it, typical Fox technique from Linda P., akin to this broken wingnut syllogism:

    You say Dick Cheney is a war criminal.

    Dick Cheney has (had, thank goodness) national security responsibilities.

    Therefore, you hate the troops.

    normally i am offended when people use lupus in a joke, but in this case he actually acknowledges that it is insidious and serious- and as dangerous as fox news. yow!

    I have lupus 😦 and I thought this was BRILLIANT! (Plus he described lupus pretty well — and public awareness is always a good thing.)
    Very funny
