Let's challenge Fox "news" to try pepper spray on the air
Fox's Megyn Kelly and Bill O'Reilley dismissed the use of massive amounts of pepper spray on college kids who were just sitting on the ground.

Kelly called it "a food product."

Let's challenge them to expose each other to pepper spray on the air. It wouldn't have to be the massive and excessive amounts used on those kids---how about just one teensy drop on your cheek Megyn? Just one drop would bring you and Hannity to your knees. Then you can tell us how harmless it is to spray massive amounts of the stuff on college kids and old ladies.

1. And then "enhanced interrogate" ?
Since neither is that harmful, according to Faux News

2. Even better, let's challenge the Republican presidential candidates to submit to waterboarding.
Since they all seem so in favor of it, and don't think it's torture.

4. First, pepper spray (military grade)...
...followed by a refreshing, cleansing rinse of eau de waterboard.

The Best of both Worlds.

5. Actually there is no such thing as "military grade" pepper spray.
In the military, pepper spray is only used by a small handful of military police, never by active troops, and even then they use the exact same stuff used by police forces and civilian buyers.

9. Providing accurate information is now "snark"?
It's news to me that we no longer give a shit about what the reality of something is.

11. So "Wraith" - why don't you educate me on Pepper Spray...
..."Wraith" - is there not a "military grade" level of pepper spray?

I would, as an ignorant, aging, filthy-dirty-hippie-punk-rocker - I would figger that there would be a minimum standard for that type of military issue.

So, what you're saying is, there is no military grade of pepper spray, as defined by the US Defense Dept.?

12. I've got a better idea
Seeing as they are all about the harmless natural ingredients now. Let's challenge Bill-O to opt for a 'poppy product' instead of that synthetic aleve next time he has a headache.

15. We should give 'em a choice
Sprayed with pepper spray, or sprayed with Santorum.

16. Megyn Kelly changes her tune once things actually affect her
We know this since the whole maternity leave issue... before she had a kid, she was all oh, those lazy women wanting maternity leave, and then after she had a kid, it was like oh, you better not be talking about maternity leave. So I wouldn't be surprised if she changed her tune if she actually tried pepper spray, but she'd never actually do it.

It would be funny, though. It's not food! It's not food!!!1!

17. Yep, situational ethics
Megyn's pregnancy must not have been on that day's talking points.

Maybe she'll give her kid a dose of this "food product" as well.
