You've got to love Detroit council member George Cushingberry's (or his handler's) Facebook response to getting pulled over. Depending on who you ask, Cushingberry was either unfairly profiled or caught driving with an open bottle and marijuana in his car (his passenger uses medicinal marijuana). Still,  a Facebook status update like "We never saw a tit. Fox news is full of ___t." exudes a sort of Zen-like genius that we can't help but repeat here. Johnnie Cochran would be proud — and probably add something like, "If it wasn't lit, you must acquit." (via Reddit user primesuspect)
