Here is what people believe in Foxland:

The tea party “won” the government shutdown battle by identifying the moderate traitors in their ranks.

Barack Obama is an avowed Marxist, which is why he named Goldman Sachs and Wall Street, those well-known hotbeds of communism, to steward the economy, .

The Progressive Left loves Obama. Not at all. He is continuing Bush-style aggressive militarism and the shredding of the Bill of Right. We don’t even like him.

The mainstream media have a liberal bias, even though they are owned lock, stock and barrel by right-wing multinational corporations. Does this make any sense at all?

Romneycare – oh, excuse me, Obamacare – is socialized medicine. Pardon me while Europe busts a gut laughing.

Deficit spending means the end of civilization unless it is done by someone named Reagan.

People choose to be gay. It is such a joy hiding who you are and/or being ostracized.

Marijuana is more dangerous than Tylenol. Not even close.

The global climate is not heating up, the oceans are not acidifying and the ice is not melting.

Fox News is fair and balanced.
