          • Rather it be for her kids, but B. isn’t bad.

            Love this G.K. Chesterton piece about children (who we must be like if we are to please God):

            “Because children have abounding vitality, because they are in spirit fierce and free, therefore they want things repeated and unchanged. They always say, “Do it again”; and the grown-up person does it again until he is nearly dead. For grown-up people are not strong enough to exult in monotony. But perhaps God is strong enough to exult in monotony. It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”

  1. My choice for Elisabeth’s replacement would be Alyson Camerotta. But, since that is likely not going to happen, has to be Anna Kooiman’s to lose.

    • Id believe almost anything this year…….the last Quinnipiac University poll had all the GOP beating her except Trump and even that was within the MOE.

      While im supporting Bernie my roommate registered to vote for the first time just so he can vote for Trump.

      2016 maybe the strangest year in a long time.

      Of course polls wont matter because the disgraced twitter stooges have already stated that none of the GOP’s will ever be president in between lying about Fox News.

      Im glad to be a news junkie this year…..oh for people who care about polls here is a great site for polls.

  2. There’s no question it should be Ainsley.
    She’s the right age, she has the most experience, she can do hard news and the light stuff, she has the perfect personality for a morning show and she now is a new mom, which can’t be underestimated as a factor in the Fox target audience. The question is if she will want it since she is very proud of F&FF but there’s no doubt Ainsley is the best candidate.
