Isn't the "invite to the White House" all about "the team" and not individual players? Thomas made this "all about him". That's the only issue I see.

How is that possible and what time frame are you talking about?  Last time I watched any FoxNews was last Feb or March, when my Dad was in the hospital and he'd have that crap on. I couldn't take it. it was utterly ridiculous. I don't think there was ever a 30 second period where Obama's name was not mentioned and it was ALL negative. Just snide remark after snide remark.  Not matter what the subject was, they found a way to turn it into a "criticism" of Obama. It was stomach turning to say the least.  I don't see how they could "up it" from that without just saying "Obama sucks ..." on a continual loop.

One theory I have about the lack of respect for politicians is that it started with the late night talk show hosts... Leno and Letterman among others have made a ton of money, making fun of the presidents.

But that dates back to Chevy Chase on SNL in 1975 (Gerald Ford, anyone?) and before.  People in general are just more pissed off than ever, because they believe whatever the lie of the day is.

If you're going to blame anything, blame the 800 TV channels and the billion websites that make their $ based on their own cockamamie political theory.  It's like the cretins who put their shows on Public Access cable have taken over the goddamn world.

Carson also made a lot of political jokes... I was just using the 2 guys listed as examples... the 800 channels theory you have is good as well... probably a combo of both.
