Anytime I get a chance to feature Fox News’ Lt. Col. Ralph (Bob) Peters, I will because he’s so fucking funny. He’s the perfect embodiment of what Fox believes is gold: ultra-conservative, militant, highly critical of anything smelling of Democrats. And he’s sharp as a box of yawning kittens, which makes him especially Fox-ey.

“The Russian Bear is huge and wild
it has devoured the infant child
the infant child is not aware

How timely (for 1979). How telling (‘Hullo–I fancy myself a cable warrior poet-douche’). How to remember and then manage all 4 lines when you’re ‘Bob’ Peters? What an idiot.
