Steve Doocy’s Stupidity Stuns McCain Into Prolonged Silence

  is this guy for real?

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]

    [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.

  2. sk1win

    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.

  3. facehead

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

  4. Cogito Ergo Bibo

    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!

  5. johnbpt

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

    Yep, Douche-y’s got my vote.

  6. NotUrEvryDayWEzl

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

  7. Kev-O-Tron

    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.)

  8. Bay Area Blue

    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.

  9. Strictly for the Tardcore

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

  10. sanantonerose

    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.

  11. BillyClubb

    You can go far in this world with a pretty face — even if you embarrass yourself every time you talk.

  12. mookworthjwilson

    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…

  13. GinBomb

    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.

  14. SayItWithWookies

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

  15. Tra

    [re=116056]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Then realizing she would think it was some kind of dessert, probably produced by freedom-hating French foreigners who hate freedom and probably go backpacking.

  16. ky-jellydonuts

    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.

  17. WadISay

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

  18. ManchuCandidate

    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.

  19. wheelie

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

    And the same goes for Steve Doocy.

  20. Tra

    I bet he practiced the Stephen Colbert eyebrow in front of a mirror, under the impression that Stephen Colbert is a highly successful conservative television commentator.

  21. Borat

    [re=116029]sk1win[/re]: How did the red/blue colors come about anyway? I thought red was bad like ‘Red China’ and communist flags and whatnot?

  22. Anonymous Office Zombie

    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.

  23. Borat

    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!

    (Eid Mubarek everyone)

  24. Freshly Minted Hobo Jack Mehoff

    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.

  25. sarahconnor

    aaargh McCrackers. Don’t feel sorry for him he is a robot, he doesn’t care!

    I was waiting for his head to explode; this R2 unit has a bad motivator.

  26. Hominidx

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

  27. The Jackson Five

    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.

  28. druranium

    [re=116095]Smoke Filled Roommate[/re]: A favorite! I was all of twelve when it was on teevee but I knew it was something special.
    Carvey does the nicknames and WRONG! with mastery. It develops a real fever pitch at the end there.

  29. RobPetrified

    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?

  30. Itsjustme

    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.

  31. asher

    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?

  32. Yuppie

    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.

  33. Texan Bulldoggette

    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?

  34. Texan Bulldoggette

    [re=116148]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Ooh, no offense to autistic people or horse flies intended.

  35. sezme

    It’s like doddering old man trying to play with a room full of retarded children. Wait, that’s exactly what it is.

  36. Canuckledragger

    Every time ya think Fox has reached a zenith of stupid, Steve Dookie opens his mouth and… viola! A new epoch of stupid is upon us.

    [re=116046]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: [re=116061]Dave J.[/re]: [re=116118]sanantonerose[/re]: Check back in 40 years. Trig Palin will have Steve Dookie’s job. And be better at it.

  37. rocktonsammy

    see what happens to tee vee congress and Wall St. when the jews take the day off, jews work at Fox right?

    USA USA USA

  38. TeddyS

    Meanwhile, Governor Palin is calling on the rightwingnut talk show circuit, where she talked about health insurance today.

    “We’ve gone through periods of our life here with paying out of pocket for health coverage until Todd and I both landed a couple of good union jobs.”

    GOOD UNION JOBS SAVED YOUR ELITIST REPUBLICAN ANTI-UNION BUTT?

  39. jasonelias

    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.

  40. StripesAndPlaids

    [re=116081]Anonymous Office Zombie[/re]: I stayed up for days in the Chelesea Hotel, writin’ “Sad Eyed Lady of the Low Lands” for you. Sarah Oh Sarah!

  41. AutomaticPilot

    [re=116049]BillyClubb[/re]: but the sad thing is, he is pretty damn ugly. And a giant retard. And a sorry excuse even for a fake journalist. Makes me wonder if he has secret pictures of rupert murdock having teh buttsecks with a goat.

  42. Serolf Divad

    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.”

  43. shortsshortsshorts

    [re=116272]Serolf Divad[/re]: Just watched it moments ago and YUP, there he is, sorting it all out in that poor, old mind.

  44. mcfrady

    [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.

  45. wilmawonker

    ‘how do you use that in a sentence?’ GAH i hate people like that. at least make clever quips or be quiet, background people.

  46. heathenish

    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?

  47. thefrontpage

    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.

  48. OzoneTom

    [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.

  49. crankypants

    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!
