Roger Ailes Has Very Cruel Friends

Boonowa tweepi, ha, ha.

This must rate as the meanest practical joke of the year:

Friends and associates are encouraging Roger Ailes — Fox News founder, chairman and CEO — to jump into the political arena for real by running for President in 2012. “Ailes knows how to frame an issue better anybody and that’s what we need now,” says one Ailes friend who is encouraging him to run. Frank Luntz, for one, tells Playbook that Ailes could be a force if does it. “I have known Roger Ailes for 29 years,” says Luntz. “No one knows how to win better than Roger.”

There’s nothing we can do in the circumstance but play along: Yes. Oh God, yes.

Update: Mr. Ailes regrets.


He’ll be 72 in 2012.

Pretty much a cruel joke. A little less cruel than asking Talibunny to run in 2012 though.

This is not the candidate you’re looking for.

@ManchuCandidate: But he’s in such great shape he’ll inspire us all with confidence. Unfortunately he’s bald. You can’t be preznit without a full head of hair. And preferably hair that’s been dyed orange by your wife.

Y’know, Jabba lived a pretty good life before he ran into Han Solo.

@Dodgerblue: All the food he could eat and hot bitches in gold bikinis. A fat guy could do worse.

@homofascist: We might as well elect a set of pasty jowls for President, as much good as it will do us.
