Obama camp fightfightfightin' Fox News Sunday

As you may remember, Fox News Sunday had set up an "Obama Watch", counting the number of days since he last said he would appear on the program. A refresher:

Well, the Obamessiah (change be upon Him) has decided to descend from the heavens tomorrow to communicate with we lowly rabble - you know, those of us who cling to guns, religion, and racism because we're poor - and appear on the program. But, via TPM's Election Central, he plans to be at his netroots-style fightfightfightin'-est:
A senior Obama adviser vows that he will "take Fox on" when he appears on the network this Sunday, though it's unclear yet just how.


Here is what the adviser IM-ed me about this today:

We are clear-eyed about Fox’'s role in the dissemination and amplification of Republican talking points this election. They have been the tip of the spear when it comes to repeatedly broadcasting some of the most specious of rumors about Obama. He is going on their Sunday show to take Fox on, not because we have any illusion about their motives or politics in this election.
He'll be ready if that mean old meanie Chris Wallace tries to ask him about any of those "distractions".
