what would happen on fox news if biden said his favorite band were marxists?

http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne...ainst-20120816

Paul Ryan said his favorite band was rage against the machine, which for those that don't know are very much against everything the right wing republicans stand for and are Marxists, and I don't mean in the sense of fox news where everything not 100% right wing republican is a marxist/socialist, I mean a group that labels themselves as such.

Eddie, don't even pretend fox news wouldn't be ALL over this if Biden said it was his favorite band and every lyric in every song would be looked over for everything that would make a good statement to use against the democrats had they said it was their favorite band.

You know I was sort of thinking the same thing about the whole Rage Against the Machine thing and Paul Ryan.... I used to like RATM when I was in HS but I didn't know any better. I do think it is possible to like the music and not the words (or meaning). I still like alot of the Beatles stuff but they, or at least John Lennon was fairly Marxist himself I believe....

I know little about FoxNews as I don't have any cable news. As for music, I prefer Paul Wilbur and wish the next prez did the same.
