Seriously? I have no idea what I should be feeling.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.

Shame for the human race that we can pay someone this stupid to be on national television?
Actually it doesn't. One could conceivably be all-powerful but not exceptionally intelligent.

Not really, since this is the USA; not the world. The USA has a reputation for being full of morons. It's part of the "this is just a minority; let's ignore it" part of the world.

Unfortunately there are a lot of misguided people who consider Fox News to be a reliable source of information and don't watch any other real news sources.   :P
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

How does Megyn Kelly know Jesus was white?

Oh right, she doesn't.  She just makes stuff up.  "Fair and Balanced" giving fair and balanced time to claims made up on the spot.

Santa was a Viking and Jesus looked like Adam Sandler and ran around wearing a dress telling the rich to give up all their wealth.  Seen with Satan several times.

Megyn Kelly is vapid.

Maybe Jesus was a Viking and Santa looked like Adam Sandler. Isn't Santa's cap just a cold-weather yamulka?

The best analysis I have read so far was someone speculating she is really a plant for Jon Stewart and the Daily Show.

From what I've heard, Jesus was pretty fly for a white guy.  ;)

I'm not sure Jon Stewart could be creative enough to think up some of these things and plant them at the right time even though this particular segment was an easy throwaway.

Republicans and their TeaPublican friends on Fox have been proving science wrong for years now by demonstrating there really is no bottom to the barrel.  You would think the whole seasonal 'war on Christmas' is a running joke, but honestly I don't see it.

Are you 12 years old? Do you base her "hotness" solely on her physical appearance? Does not her intellect or anything else play a role? Oh, she too is a Republican. I guess, for you, that's enough.

She has a pretty solid resume, and spent a fair amount of time as a court reporter doing hard news.  I believe she also has a degree in law.. though I might be mixing her up with somebody else. 

Either way, it's a shame that she sold herself to the Fox opinion-nation.  Just goes to show, even smart people do dumb things if you throw enough money at them.
