Didn't find them that funny except for the Matrix one and a few of the later ones after they stopped using racism as a punchline.

Nothing special here. Just the usual childish yet bloodthirsty, lying potshots being taken by leftists unable to deal with the fact that their propaganda can't be passed off as "news" anymore.

I only got half of 'em.

The other half didn't load for some reason.

Ah, well. If there were as many "French surrender" themes in the ones that didn't load as ones that did, I didn't miss much.

Loved the first one --with Geraldo givin' away the Greeks' position.....

Funny you have to love the liberal spin here….  The only one that was really amusing was the Geraldo ones.

If Fox is the mouthpiece for the Republican Party then why are they insulting Lincoln?  I swear Democrats seem to forget what party was founded as a movement to deny the movement of slavery into the territories.  While the other one fought savagely with slavery as a key part of their policy.  Of course that small detail seems to be forgotten.  

Oh I love the Reagan one. :D    

Then if Fox News is such a bastion of Conservatism and the tie to World War II.  I think it was Churchill who was warning everyone about Hitler while the Liberals went to Munich to achieve peace.  IIRC Churchill was a conservative.  

Moving on to the Cuban Missile Crisis one….  Gah!  I’m not even touching how badly JFK handled that one.  We’re here today not because of JFK but because the Russian sub commanders had restraint.

CJ-- Accurate or not, it's funny as hell. If it makes you feel better, you can mentally superimpose the CNN logo. ;).

Ahem.  

CJ, you do know that Neville Chamberlain was a Tory, right?  

He was just from a different wing of the British Conservative Party.  The whole fight over appeasement was a battle within the Conservative Party between the old guard who thought Hitler was a useful club to smack the Soviets with, and Churchill, who realized that Hitler was so danged nasty that he shouldn't be supported under any circumstances.

While the head of the Labour Party, Clement Atlee, served as deputy Prime Minister to Churchill in the national unity government, a living embodiment of the loyal opposition.

And there was also this guy named Franklin Delano Roosevelt...

You're dead right about ol' Abe, though.  Party of Lincoln, indeed.
