Steve Doocy to Jon Klein: “Your epidermis is showing!”

Foxy friends.jpgSticks and stones can break “Fox and Friends” co-anchor Steve Doocy‘s bones, but names aren’t gonna hurt him, stamped it no erasies. So when Jonathan Klein bragged to Marketwatch columnist Jon Friedman about how much smarter CNN “American Morning” hosts Miles and Soledad O’Brien were than the “Fox & Friends” crew, Doocy came back and proved he had just as much smartness, asking the NYDN‘s Lowdown: “What does Jonathan D. Klein [pronounced 'decline'] think people want on a morning show?” (We’re guessing he was particularly proud of that one, but stand by for the kicker:) “Are people going to watch someone who’s up and at ‘em, or are they going to watch someone split an atom?” Ooh! Zing! Doocy got ‘em that time – AND proved a working knowledge of particle physics! We’re guessing that Jon Klein is feeling a bit like glue to Doocy’s rubber right about now. Meanwhile, the Fox website should only be as smart as it’s anchors; when we entered a search for “Doocy” it came back and helpfully asked “Did you mean: steve doozy?” Hee. Doozy. Fun new nickname! Doozy make Roger Ailes proud.
