Roger Ailes Has Very Cruel Friends
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.
