Your Daily '80s: 1988 predicts 2010

Geraldo Rivera and Fox News were made for each other.

You could see that way back in 1988, when the enfant terrible of TV talk had his own syndicated date with sensationalism, and the Fox News Channel was but a twinkle in Rupert Murdoch's jaundiced eye. You have to admit, however, that Geraldo threw a not-terrible right cross despite having just had his nose broken by a thrown chair.

Fox ought to aim at this for Election Night this November. Geraldo could reprise his Fight Club thang with some tea-party patriots, and Glenn Beck could provide weepy ringside commentary.

It'd do boffo box office. Trust me on this.
