Fox and Fluffers
Lickspittle Carl Cameron gives Huckleberry Fred a friendly tug:
Trying to encourage his studio to hurry up so an interview could start, Carl Cameron of Fox News said into his microphone: "The next president of the United States has a schedule to keep." Standing beside him, a deadpan Mr Thompson interjected: "And so do I."
As some Thompson aides looked bemused and others cringed, a taken-aback Mr Cameron, Fox's chief political correspondent, exclaimed: "You can't do that kind of stuff!"
No wonder Huckleberry spends so little time campaigning. He's set up his front porch in the Faux News studios.
