Kochs Push For KXL Completion Invigorates Fox News (And the GOP)

 No, this is not a screed related to Hustler Entertainment nor the Playboy Channel.  The work relates to the resurgence of the Koch brothers TransCanada's Keystone XL Pipeline. Republicans took a majority in the US Senate and within hours commenced to beating the drums on issues important to the Koch brothers: repeal ObamaCare and approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline. 

As hardcore Libertarians the Kochs are as averse the Affordable Care Act as they are averse to public school education. The Keystone Project is reported to come with a $100 billion dollar gold mine in Koch owned Canada. Is there any wonder the two legislative initiatives have generated a post election libido charge for the GOP.  One really must payback debts to the party "bank."

You may now wonder why the Hustler entertainment like image above. How better to reach the Fox News predominate white male over 40 viewer demographic? If you answered in any manner other than pure "ass candy" you might be a Fox News viewer. What better way to mask misinformation about the KXL Project to die hard viewers than to moniker the information in network eye/ass candy?  

The Tampa Bay Times PunditFact team researched the comment as well as other sources. The KXL will provide less than 60 full-time jobs.

Republicans already have some things they’d like to do when they assume full control of Congress in January. 
Plans include reforming the tax code, renewing the fight against Obamacare and approving the Keystone XL pipeline, according to a Wall Street Journal editorial by House Speaker John Boehner and current Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. 
Fox and Friends fill-in host and reporter Anna Kooiman honed in on the latter initiative during a post-Election Day discussion about the GOP leaders’ plans. 
"And if you would just approve the Keystone XL pipeline, there would be tens of thousands of jobs created," Kooiman said Nov. 6, addressing President Barack Obama.

In all honesty and candor, Fox News "eye candy: has to be entertaining for the "Viagra Crowd" and their wives. I will also admit to a scroll-up peep a couple of times during the development of this piece. However, the importance of a Canadian oil pipeline traversing major parts of the US heartland for transport of oil to Asia is not palatable even with copious blonde leg and thigh shots.

If by chance you feel I have been a bit harsh and over-the-top, you might want to give this piece another 15 seconds.

Of course, Kelly immediate corrected her Freudian Slip mental constipation accompanied by typical Kelly oral diarrhea.

But, I ask, have I made my case about Fox News's eye candy business model.
