The gates of Hell have yawned open for one evil FOX News host.
All right, so "evil FOX News host" is redundant...
The man I'm talking about is John Gibson. Yesterday on his radio show, Gibson, in an apparent attempt at seeming hip, took it upon himself to make light of the death of Heath Ledger. Gibson played a clip of Ledger's line from Brokeback Mountain, "I wish I knew how to quit you," then quipped, "Well, he found out how to quit you."
Gibson then went on a tirade against Ledger, calling him a "weirdo," and ripping the 28-year-old actor for his apparent death obsession (I guess Gibson has never experienced a black thought in his entire life - sure he hasn't). Gibson then played another clip from Brokeback, when Ledger's character Ennis says "We're dead" while talking to Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) about the possible dire consequences of continuing their relationship. Gibson follows Ledger's "We're dead" with his own mocking "We're dead," then goes on to (snidely) insist that Ledger's death was in fact a tragedy.
You can hear the whole thing here.
Gibson also thought it would be brilliant to keep dropping Ledger death references into his broadcast. One allegedly humorous bit:
Gibson: Apparently Heath Ledger was suicidal and his friends saw it coming. I think he watched the Clinton-Obama debate last night. I think he was an Edwards guy, cause he saw his Edwards guy was just completely irrelevant.
John Gibson, meet your new boyfriend for all eternity - Bubba the Flame-Dicked Ass-Rapist. It burns John...it buuuuuuuuurns.
