Neanderthals At Fox News Resurrect Elian Gonzalez In Latest Effort To Undermine Obama (Seriously)

It seems that nothing is going to get in the way of the continued marginalization of the RNC communications' shop -- as known as Fox News -- now that they've helped to sweep Republicans out of power in Washington for many years to come. Just when you think that Fox News couldn't become any more out-of-touch with the vast majority of Americans -- or any more pathetic in trying to undermine every move that now President-elect Obama (D) makes -- following his electoral mandate -- they've indeed sunk even lower and more painfully desperate.

If you happened to catch yourself stopping on Fox News last night as you were channel surfing -- as I did -- you might have caught their lengthy new breaking story where they claimed Attorney General-designate Eric Holder was even more involved in the Elian Gonzalez matter (yes, they're still obsessing about this insanity) than previously believed.

Now, let's assume that Fox News -- for a change -- is actually correct in that Holder was more involved in the decision-making. What's their point? Is there any real doubt today that returning that little boy back home to his biological father (after his mother died trying to flee Cuba with Elian) was an infinitely better decision than forcing him to remain in South Florida with whackjob relatives he didn't even know so that he could continue to be used as a political wedge? I think it's clearer today than ever that we did the right thing for the child by returning him to his only living biological parent.

Yet, somehow, the Neanderthals over at Fox News believe their latest effort will hurt Holder? Seriously? If so, the level of buffoonery and tone-deaf hackery at Fox News is even more pronounced than we previously imagined, as hard as that is to believe...
