Sherrod Brown Reads Our Minds

A fringe benefit of an Obama win would be pointing and laughing at Fox News. Myself, if things go as planned, I plan to block out 12-3 the day after the election day to listen to Limbaugh.

At about 11:30 pm, he told the crowd, they should switch over to Fox News, the network on which the right-leaning O’Reilly hosts a top-rated talk/news show.

A chorus of boos erupted from the crowd. Fox, of course, is vilified by many Democrats, who believe it favors Republicans. Obama himself has gone after the network at times.

‘No, no, bear with me here,’ Brown shouted, as boos continued raining down. ‘No, no, you’ll want to do this. You don’t like Fox, but sometimes Fox has gotta do the right thing, so you’re gonna watch Fox,’ he continued.

‘About quarter till 12 on election night, it’s gonna be Bill O’Reilly sitting there with Sean Hannity,’ he said, drawing another cascade of jeers from the crowd at the mention of another popular conservative Fox host.

‘No, no wait a sec, this is gonna be too much fun. You’re not gonna be booing ‘cause you know what’s coming next. So Hannity – they’re going through all these numbers and Barack’s won California, New York and Illinois and Michigan and Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and all these others. And, you know McCain wins Utah or something,’ Brown said, drawing appreciative laughs and claps from the energized crowd.

‘Then Hannity’s sitting there next to O’Reilly, and they’re looking at each other, and O’Reilly says, ‘You gonna do it?’ And Hannity says, ‘No.’ So O’Reilly – sweat’s coming, tears are coming down his cheeks – you can see ‘em on your flat screen. And O’Reilly says, ‘Well, Ohio went for Barack Obama. He’s gonna be president of the United States!’
