Fox News gives Kerry extreme makeover!

By now you've probably heard about the fake story that "chief political correspondent" Carl Cameron peddled on Fox News' Web site this morning -- you know, the one that had John Kerry making girlish (French?) pronouncements about his "manicures" and "pedicures." Josh Marshall is all over it. Fox has since pulled the piece and apologized, citing "fatigue and bad judgment," for quoting Kerry as saying the following:

"Women should like me! I do manicures."

"Didn't my nails and cuticles look great? What a good debate!"

"I'm metrosexual [Bush's] a cowboy."

Note to pro-Bush bloggers: We're not sure exactly how many days without sleep it takes to read those lines as authentic -- but probably at least a couple more than it takes to determine whether they were churned out with a typewriter from the 1970s.
