Steve Doocy’s Stupidity Stuns McCain Into Prolonged Silence

by Jim Newell

Once we asked ourselves, How does Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy get out of bed each morning knowing that he’ll have to be Steve Doocy all day long? Well, he’s so dumb that he doesn’t “know” anything. We even feel sorry for John McCain in this clip, because he actually has to *talk* to this jerk-off for a few seconds. The topic is “gotcha journalism,” and Steve Doocy asks John McCain a personal question about Steve Doocy, because Steve Doocy has no clue what “gotcha journalism” means at all. [YouTube]

I’m pretty sure he just called Steve Doocy a fag.

Dernyul September 30, 2008 at 5:26 pm

omfg my face got hot. This is the most embarrassing shit ever.

thesycophant September 30, 2008 at 5:26 pm

At work and can’t watch the video right now, but that YouTube still is pretty much perfect.

nurple September 30, 2008 at 5:26 pm

I blame Doocey for Hurricane Gustav.

bmannes September 30, 2008 at 5:28 pm

[re=116018]spencer[/re]: Yep, the irony being that Steve Dooky is an Anti-Fag!

The feeling you got when you watched that is called a “douche-chill”, everyone.

sk1win September 30, 2008 at 5:29 pm

I love how both of their favorite colors are blue! I thought for sure those Republicans douchebags would say red. I have to give Walnuts a little credit on his answer–it was pretty funny.

facehead September 30, 2008 at 5:29 pm

ooo “chartreuse” … McCain is a pansy for even knowing how to pronounce it. Might as well have said “the color of arugula.”

Astrobastard September 30, 2008 at 5:30 pm

Oh god, that failed Colbert expression right after he asks the question… awful x1000.

Cogito Ergo Bibo September 30, 2008 at 5:31 pm

Jeebus. That’s just pathetic. If you want Johnny Walnuts to buy your a sweater in your favoritist color ever, just ask, you pussy! Don’t make him guess!

johnbpt September 30, 2008 at 5:31 pm

“…Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy is the dumbest motherfucker in world history.”

Yep, Douche-y’s got my vote.

NotUrEvryDayWEzl September 30, 2008 at 5:31 pm

[re=116018]spencer[/re]: Perhaps… but how does macho-pow-man McCain even know the word chartreuse?

Kev-O-Tron September 30, 2008 at 5:31 pm

That news show is a whole new caliber of douche. And “chartreuse?” That’s some elitist shit right there. REAL bitterz would have said “sea-green.”

Also, Chartreuse is a tasty aperitif (I’m an elitist to the core so I should know.)

Bay Area Blue September 30, 2008 at 5:31 pm

I can’t believe McCain picked Blue as his favorite color. The Conservative Media Lemmings should be up in arms that their candidate is secretly Blue.

Strictly for the Tardcore September 30, 2008 at 5:32 pm

WALNUTS!’s favorite color is blue? Is WALNUTS! in the tank for Obama now, too? Why does WALNUTS! hate Republicans and, thusly, America?

tonashideska September 30, 2008 at 5:32 pm

Doosey’s favorite color is blue? Doosey’s a democrat?

NoWireHangers September 30, 2008 at 5:32 pm

The sound of WALNUTS! laughter is truly horrific. It chills my blood. Seriously.

sanantonerose September 30, 2008 at 5:33 pm

How cool would it be if McCain went apeshit and told Doocy what a stupidfuckingidiot he is?

Almost cool enough to consider voting for him. Almost.

ManchuCandidate September 30, 2008 at 5:33 pm

Ron Burgundy = Steve Doochey?

shortsshortsshorts September 30, 2008 at 5:33 pm

I will say it again…I am so ashamed of my hometown, the town I grew up in, that this douchenozzle calls it home…ugh…

GinBomb September 30, 2008 at 5:37 pm

Fox & Friends always makes me think of Fassbinder. He might as well have told McCain he had a 10″ cock for the reaction he got.

SayItWithWookies September 30, 2008 at 5:39 pm

That momentary silence wasn’t McCain being confused — it was him thinking, “Maybe Sarah could handle this one.”

jrtoastyman September 30, 2008 at 5:40 pm

ky-jellydonuts September 30, 2008 at 5:45 pm

Of COURSE, because there’s NO difference between not being able to answer a foreign policy outcomes question from a Random American Voter and not being able to answer a personal question that’s got no bearing on anything from a news foof.

We could fund the bailout with a telethon to waterboard these people. I’ll send in the change in the couch cushions before the repo men haul it away.

WadISay September 30, 2008 at 5:45 pm

This has got to be some dogwhistle public mens room toe-tap. “Chartruese” means, like, party in your stall.

ManchuCandidate September 30, 2008 at 5:46 pm

During long scilence

McCain: OMG! I think he’s a gay!
Doochey: Why do birds poop on me?
McCain: Think think think think.
Doochey: I like going to the zoo and watch monkeys masturbating
McCain: My god, I hate these long awkward pauses. Reminds me of Nam. Oh god NAAAAAAAAMMMMM!!!!
Doochey: Next time, I’ll wear red. It brings out my eyes.

tsunami September 30, 2008 at 5:46 pm


damn french elitist. damn you walnuts…and that cunt-trollop you rode in on.

I have to confess, I thought chartreuse was a shade of purple.

He’s a brainless, shallow drone who should never be allowed on TV again.

And the same goes for Steve Doocy.

Anonymous Office Zombie September 30, 2008 at 5:52 pm

Lol! McCain’s contempt is all but palpable, and yes, he did just call Douchy a fag in not so many words.

Oh, speaking of “gotcha journalism” and other empty marketing slogans, “let Sarah be Sarah” sounds like it’s going to be the next GOP talking point de jour. Buchanan kept spitting it out on Hardball. So repeat after me, O ye, brainwashed millions – Let Sarah be Sarah, Let Sarah be Sarah, Let Sarah be Sarah, Let Sarah be Sarah.

druranium September 30, 2008 at 5:53 pm

I like how at the end walnuts says “Thanks gang. Thanks for the tongue bathing.”

Borat September 30, 2008 at 5:54 pm

Did I hear at the end they were in Des Moines? Seriously? Why? No real city has space for them? I hear Aljazeera in Doha has extra studio space (and ZERO taxes, woohoo!) Allu Akbar!

Freshly Minted Hobo Jack Mehoff September 30, 2008 at 5:57 pm

At the end, WALNUTS! is all “thanks gang!” What a nice guy, playin it so cool with the media that he hates so bad now.

I know this is an election and there’s an economic meltdown and all, but HURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

The Jackson Five September 30, 2008 at 6:01 pm

Doocy needs to give up and change the name of his show to “Mommy Issues” and only give interviews while curled up in the fetal position. It would make more sense for the viewers that way.

chim chim the destroyer September 30, 2008 at 6:03 pm

Someone should bash Doucheys head in with a rock….

I actually like McCain slightly more after that clip. I can’t quite say why.

[re=116018]spencer[/re]: Yeah, I think he did, too.

RobPetrified September 30, 2008 at 6:11 pm

Its just that type of “hard hitting” “TV journalism” that makes FOX “news” the number one rated “news” channel on the TV.
Dan Rather, let alone Katie Couric, couldn’t have nailed Senator McCain the way Steve Doofey did.
I wonder if any of the FOX faithful wonder why most of the female talking heads on the “news” channel look like Barbie dolls, while the men mostly look like your weird old uncle who smells bad and touches you in inappropriate places?

Skwerl Nutz September 30, 2008 at 6:11 pm

Chartreuse? ah..The color of Father Karras’ eyes before Satan took him to the dark side

Itsjustme September 30, 2008 at 6:23 pm

Hmmm. I don’t get it. If Douchy were say….Keith Olbermann, then McNodick would go running out screaming that he was being made fun of.

asher September 30, 2008 at 6:33 pm

Erm, they all laughed, so they all know that chartreuse is a color. Which was more cringe-inducing, the Colbert eyebrow attempt, or the attempt to cover up their knowledge of sissy elitist french colors?

Yuppie September 30, 2008 at 6:38 pm

Actually, the reason McCain paused uncomfortably (more than he usually does before answering a question) was because a Fox intern was going down on him and that was his o-face.

Was that inappropriate? That was probably inappropriate. My apologies to Wonkette and the world.

Texan Bulldoggette September 30, 2008 at 6:39 pm

Did Doocy & Bible Spice go to the same school of journalism? Brit Hume probably despises him & gives him swirlies in the toilet. Good God, they’ll put any moron on Fox, won’t they?

Texan Bulldoggette September 30, 2008 at 6:46 pm

Doocy’s been getting on my nerves since he was on WRC-TV, in DC. He was always annoying the only thing added to the fetid brew is his shitty politics.

OK, just got a chance to watch this, and all I can say is that the best part is probably when McCain starts smiling a goofy smile at the end there when he finally “gets it.”

[re=116079]Borat[/re]: originally, blue was for the repugs and red for the demos but when cheney saw the colors on a teevee map, he thought the color red made it look like the demos were winning more states so than the repugs. he contacted the networks and had the colors reversed for future broadcasts.

ohmydearsweetlord!! every time i see that guys name i think it’s douchey (why isn’t it, btw?) anyway – is he trying to say asking princess sarah hard questions like what magazines she reads is equal to asking mccain what what douchey’s favorite color is, o(or that it’s like mind reading to be able to talk about foreign policy or something?)i agree how does douchey even get up in the morning? better – why does he get up?

thefrontpage October 1, 2008 at 12:41 pm

Why is Steve Doocy on the air? Why is the Fox cable television network on the air? Why are most of the people on the Fox cable channel on the air? Why does anyone besides about 430,000 deluded morons watch the Fox channel? And how does this channel stay on the air, since no one is watching and it apparently doesn’t make any money and is among the worst television journalism in the business. What a bunch of untalented, unjournalistic morons. And McCain should know better–but the fact that he doesn’t know better than to appear on this pile of crap shows he is just as moronic as everyone on that horrible channel. They are all just morons.

blackdontcrack October 1, 2008 at 1:37 pm

your favorite color is chartreuse? OH SNAP!! he told you sister girlfriend!

OzoneTom October 1, 2008 at 3:19 pm

[re=116079]Borat[/re], [re=116402]mcfrady[/re]: True they are colors that have been used on TV (and earlier) electoral maps for some time. But there was no overall standard between network news organizations. In fact in 1980, NBC’s Reagan landslide map was almost solid blue.

In the 2000 election they became cemented in people’s minds with the discussion and idea of “red states” and “blue states” so now the parties are pretty much stuck with what the standard was that year.

crankypants June 14, 2009 at 8:33 pm

Serially, where do they keep coming up with mutants like this? Steve Doocie, the self-anointed “weather guy” and political gadfly. Christ I can’t take it. Fux News, thank you!
