As you can see, the Fox and Friends crew is more than happy to air controversial Reuters photos of Sarah Palin's legs, while debating whether or not the images are inappropriate. (News flash: FOX's Michelle Malkin says they're more "cliched" than inappropriate -- big surprise, given FOX's low low low standards of decency.)

Gutfeld puts the "ass" back in "classy."
