Wake Up Sheeple!

Fox News: "Is it Time for Jimmy Carter to Just SHUT UP?!" Thanks to News Hounds. One of Sean Hannity's favorite right-wing cliches is that the left is "shrill and unhinged." I wonder if Sean will call his network mate Neil Cavuto on his shrill and unhinged rhetoric?

Neil Cavuto, who Fox touts as its head honcho business news guy, opened his "business" show (yeah, right) like this today (August 1, 2005):
Well, is Jimmy Carter's popping off about Gitmo while speaking abroad traitorous, and for our markets, potentially ruinous? Today, why a top Carter critic says he's gone from being nuts to now just dangerous."

Cavuto outlined some of the items he'd cover later in the show and then Fox played a video clip of former President Carter saying, "I think what's going on at Guantanamo Bay and in Abu Ghraib and other places is a disgrace to the United States of America."
Cavuto continued, "Is it time for Jimmy Carter to just shut up?! Today a look at comments he made abroad this weekend and why some say he's hurting our country's image and yes, maybe our country's stocks."

Of course "SHUT-UP" has become a new right-wing talking point. We'll be waiting Sean?
