This bit of idiocy has been making the rounds:
Now, I understand that Red Eye is supposed to be a late night “funny” show of some kind, insofar as any show on Fox News can be intentionally funny, which is generally speaking not that much. And I note that the combined military experience of Greg Gutfield, Don Benson, Bill Schulz and Monica Crowley (the individuals in the above clip) is a whopping zero years, but certainly their combined experience as former editors of Maxim and Stuff, being a former assistant to Richard Nixon during the final years of Nixon’s life, and writing a stage play called “The Marijuana-logues” should qualify them to opine about… well, things in general, you know?
It is worth noting that Doug Benson has apologized on his Twitter feed, and in the proper “I was an idiot and I’m sorry” way, which earns him a bit of credit. Gutfield, on the other hand, opted for the non-apology apology by saying his comments “may have been misunderstood,” which is a passive-aggressive “I’m sorry you didn’t understand what I said” shot back. Jesus, Gutfield – if you’re going to be an asshole, fine, but don’t be a wimp about it. Own it.
