Three quick hits from Cenk and Ana Kasparian from Thursday’s show:
The Obion County Fire Department of Tennessee allowed a woman’s house to burn to the ground because she did not pay the required $75 annual fire protection fee. The fire department showed up to the scene and watched the home burn.
Cenk: Are we human beings, or are we not human beings? You’re the fire department, put the freaking fire out. What kind of monsters are you?
Ana: You’ve got to use human judgment.
Cenk: You morons, this is how you burn down a city — by not putting out one fire.
Ana: And imagine if there were people in the house — but, who cares? Because you didn’t pay the $75 fee.

A LUNCH THAT WILL LIVE IN INFAMY
Critics are bashing Obama after learning that his children attend a school that hosted an Asian-inspired lunch menu on December 7. The date marked the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Here’s the menu:
Cenk: These conservatives, I guess, are morons for a living. Eighty percent of this menu isn’t even Japanese.
UNDER MY UMBRELLA ‘ELLA ‘ELLA
And Bill O’Reilly whacked an inquisitive passerby in Wisconsin after being questioned about his attendance at a Newt Gingrich fundraiser.
Cenk: What is he, The Penguin? Who hits someone with an umbrella?
Ana: I don’t know. He’s an absolute mess.
