I guess Barack Obama is aware that his smack at Fox News is an out-of-the-bag cat, because tonight, he got a little quippy. Pressing John McCain on his description of the Democrat's tax policy, Obama said, "Even Fox News disputes it, and that doesn't happen very often when it comes to accusations about me."

Obama: The notion that I voted for a tax increase for people making $42,000 a year has been disputed by everybody who has looked at this claim that Senator McCain keeps on making. Even Fox News disputes it, and that doesn't happen very often when it comes to accusations about me.
