Friday Freakshow Roundup: Chickens, Charts, and the Return of Taiwanese Animated News Breaks

In the political news system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the Republicans who do insane things, and this blogger who mocks them. These are their stories:
  • Newt Gingrich has started sending a man in a chicken costume to follow around the Romney campaign with a sign accusing him of being "too chicken to debate Newt Gingrich" since Romney has declared he won't be doing any more debates.
  • Speaking of Mitt Romney, earlier in the week one of his spokesmen told reporters that Santorum lacks "the basic level of competence" needed to be President, which is going to be even more amusing when it comes time for Romney to endorse him like a good little soldier.
  • Of course Santorum isn't the only one questioning Obama's Christianity, Franklin Graham, heir to the Religious Right, doesn't believe the President when he says he's a Christian.  In case you were wondering, Graham also doesn't believe Mitt Romney's claims to be Christian, though he does believe Santorum and Gingrich.
  • Fox News is still having problems making charts that aren't complete lies, this time when it comes to gas prices.  Who knew that "last week" and "last year" were equal lengths of time, or that gas prices have gone up in a straight line since then?
  • Finally, I feel like I've been letting you down the last few weeks, forgetting that the real reason you all come back is for the Taiwanese Animated News Program, so consider this my apology:
