Mama Mia thats some spicy weiner!

Good riddance

KS blathers

Good news for Dr. Savage - this is a double edged sword for the liberal progs. My prediction; He will be baaaaaccccccckkkkkk !

Preston

Which means stations like KVI, which already carry him delayed will now replay the worst of Savage--delayed.

T-S

Who cares about Savage. The dumbest of the dumb are the only ones who listen. They may be a lot of people which doesn't say much for America. They are still the dumbest of the dumbs.

Observer

'Tis but a speck of sand in the vast desert of irrelevance and matters not in the overall scheme of life.

Hussein for Obama

Outstanding. Now maybe more listeners will tune into shows like Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Big Ed, Randy (she's so brilliant) Rhodes, and of course the smartest of the smart, the only talk radio host with a PhD Maddude. I know it might be derogatory calling her that but hey, she does look like a dude and I've heard she is the alpha of her household. When more people tune in those radio hosts, hey will undoubtly switch MSNBC making them number 1 on flat screens all over the US. This could be the start of America becoming smarter.

KS blathers

-LMAO - Don't count on that, even though America has dumbed down quite a bit in the last 10 years. MSNBC ratings are in the toilet and will remain there.

If Randi think she is so damn smart, what is her solution about how to deal with Iran and the oncoming Arab Winter in the mideast ?

Preston

What is your solution? $7-10 dollar a gallon gas?

Hedge Fund Hal (edited by Esmerelda H.)

"Maddude"....... I believe she is referring to "The Sneerer", Rachel Maddow........

KS blathers

What is your solution? $7-10 dollar a gallon gas?

Posted by: Preston | September 28, 2012 at 09:59 AM

The solution is as plain as the nose on your face - Get a new president !

Americans wasted four years for the current White House resident to do something about the economy

- Jay Leno 9/27/2012

Preston

This was your question...

If Randi think she is so damn smart, what is her solution about how to deal with Iran and the oncoming Arab Winter in the mideast ?

Posted by: KS blathers | September 28, 2012 at 09:56 AM

What would a 'new' president do about Iran and the "Arab Winter" Put on a jacket?

Hussein for Obama

Faux news is in trouble. They just showed a guy blow his head out on live tv.

KS blathers

T-S watches Fox News ? They just stole MSNBC's thunder then... hahahaha

Hussein for Obama

If I was this TS that would be funny KS. But i am not and watch Shepard Smith regularly since he reported from New Orleans during Bushs failure after Katrina. You remember that fiasco right or were you still in elementary school. That's when Bush failed to evacuate New Orleans and just flew over the city most likely laughing at the black residents that fell victim to Katrina's power.Google it.

Hussein for Obama

Arab winter? What are you talking about. Be clear, we can't read your mind.

Hedge Fund Hal

....accidents happen when trying to present live tv news coverage and protect public sensibilities at the same time...this could just as easily be CNN or MSNBC in the story..Foxnews does not have the franchise on car chases ... Shep apologized.....the story is already being buried in the news cycle....this extreme, mindless hatred of Foxnews, among our leftwing rabids here, particularly one perpetually angry , bitter and personally insulting person who posts all the time, under two or three different monikers, is really laughable, KS.

Hussein for Obama

Hal, here is some news for you, it didn't happen on CNN or MSNBC. It happened on FAUX News. The sooner you realize this the sooner you'll know you are acting the fool for a lying scum bucket of a new station.

Hedge Fund Hal

"Stevensgate" now really gathering traction as the election approaches......oh boy....man oh man......could mean the difference for Obama between victory and failure/loss in an election this close........ perfect setup for Mitt in the foreign policy debate...

Preston

Quiet everyone, tommy is switching conspiracies.

T-S

Hussein for Obama, I think you're as confused as our blathering friend, KS. At least he admits he's blathering all the time. When someone actually admits they don't make much sense, you gotta give them credit. At least he's consistent.

What's your schtick?

Hussein for Obama

My shtick, is being the best Progressive I can be. Unlike you I will actually respond reasonably with out name calling. That should have been a clue that I am not you. Is he always this clueless.

T-S

My my, aren't we self-righteous.

Maddude. I know it might be derogatory

Yes, it is.

Observer

Step back,take a deep breath and solemly ask yourself, does it REALLY matter? Dec 21st is quickly approaching my friends; grab on to something of substance. When you check out do you really think your final thought will be 'I wish I would have spent more time on the BW blog'. Think about it.

Todd

Ok, I’ll bite…why would we contemplate our remaining dreamy moments with a dead line of December 21st in mind?

Todd

Never mind, I get it…satire! You had me goin’ there Observer.

T-S

I don't. Satire or not, what's Dec 21 got to with it? Yeah, winter solstice or does this have something to do with the resurrection? As far as I know, I'm not going to die on December 21, am I?

BTW, if that is the plan, I'm asking for a stay of execution til my birthday on December 31.

Hussein for Obama

T-S, that was derogatory statements towards other bloggers on this website. Like name calling. Something you just can't seem do.

Todd

T-S,
It’s a reference to a conspiracy; Observer was alluding to the conspiracy suggesting the conspiratorial types here need to make haste.

Hussein for Obama

As far as Maddude, like I said, I know it sounds derogatory, but I don't mean it to be. It's meant to show others I can be playful by coming up with nicknames for my Progressive brothers and sisters as I can for the Neo-cons of the right like El-Cystbo.

Hedge Fund Hal

yes, the T-S default position when she gets in a jam(someone beating aher in an argument with just good reasoning and the facts) is to run to the insults and namecalling. It's very similar to the guy in a street fight who finds himself losing and brings out an iron bar or a knife or a gun, or kicks the other guy in the crotch.

T-S

After all the Johnsons you've plagued me with you whine now? What a phoney you are, Tommy.

Just trying to get your true position, Hussein. I used to have a name with that very label in it myself which is why the boys are mistaking you for me. But you've said several things which seem to cast dispersion on the left and it has made me question your true loyalties. I'm no hundred percenter myself when it comes to Obama or democrats. But I'm usually pretty clear about what I support and what I don't.

BTW, boys, Rasmussen shows Obama up by 1; Gallup shows him up by 6. My oh my, as Niehaus used to say. Looks like it might be a homerun for Obama, huh?

T-S

BTW, Hussein, you're a little new and perhaps a little naive so perhaps you ought not try to referee the blog. We have a crew of referees who know the players and do a pretty good job of it without help. :)

nameless

"Gallup shows him up by 6"

i have a feeling we won't be hearing from the "polls are skewed crowd". next conspiracy!!!

Hussein for Obama

I know who you are T-S. Your writing is distinct just as Hal's and chucks is. Must admit I haven't seen Puts, maybe he is over on SoundPolitics or HorsesAss doing his word play. Speaking of refs, where is Sparky. And who is Black Rhino, some word skills there.
We were two peas in a pod back in the day of the debates on here about the wars, Katrina, global warming, the governor races, conspiracys, even in defense of Randi. My position has been steady, I lean left, more than you as I am not afraid to show and recognize the closeness of my leanings to socialism. With Obama I've come out of the closet. But it looks like you are having remorse over your recent election votes. None whatsoever here. I voted for Obama, not against Bush.

Hussein for Obama

Oh two more things, it was sad to hear Michaels beloved Stepanie has passed away and this capcha sucks.

Hedge Fund Hal

Gallup uses registered voters. They are the best of the rest ,but Rasmussen was the most accurate of all the polls from 2008 and the poll she cited has Romney down by one. You people are just being silly, hanging your hats on polls, with this level of smugness, in late September, even taking this year's unquestionably bogus sampling methodology out of the equation. But I guess you can feel wonderful about your 6 point lead knowing that incumbent Jimmy Carter had a similar or greater lead this time in 1980 and went on to of course just thrash Reagan in the 1980 election and serve out four more year. Remember the wonderful Jimmy Carter Presidency of the early eighties? No, neither do I. Many more examples of course of incumbents' leads somehow disappearing as the election closed in, sometimes only days before. The one number that you should take seriously is the 50% Gallup mid-Sepember benchmark for incumbent Presidents, because its a number that is unbroken in Gallup polling history, as a prerequisite for victory in November. Your guy didn't make it. It kind of makes sense doesn't it , that you should be able to garner at least 50% support of the voters after showing them your skills and abilities for four years. Game, set and match.

T-S

There's a difference between being down by one and being up by one? Chris Matthews had a good laugh over your misunderstanding of polling and uh the walrus

Then you took my name, Hussein? No, you aren't closer to socialism if you are more Obama than me. I'm more Jill Stein these days. Think about it.

I thought you sounded like you were parodying the left. Now I think you may be trying to parody a past me. Which could explain the confusion on the part of KS and T-H-D. Whichever, you don't sound authentic.

You do remind me of someone who began posting here a short-time before the blog went bust but he was no like-minded friend to me. In fact, he was just looking for attention and people gave him short shrift after a while. Was that you?

Hedge Fund Hal

The difference between myself and an ideologue like T-S is that i will actually listen to that gasbag Mathews from time to time, whereas i'm certain that T-S never took the time to actually read "Why the polls undercount the Romney vote" on dickmorris.com. She horselaughs him off as a "toesucker" ignoring the fact that people often have weird fetishes or strangeness in their personal lives that are completely commpartmentalized and have no bearing whatsoever on their competency or accuracy on the job, or in their careers. I notice this is common among the libbers, this kind of irrelevant personal cheapshotting, used to discredit his or her political views, crtiques of polls, etc. O'Reilly played a clip of Conan O'brien responding to a clip Conan had just played of a segment of The View. In the segment, you see and hear Elisabeht Hasselbeck asking a very well-spoken, polie and cogent question of Obama and Michelle to the effect of how can they say Romney will fail the middle class when it can be argued that they have already failed the middle class. Speaking truth to power. O'brien, cut off the clip without even showing Obama's response and simply started making fun of Hasselhbeck the person, not her question, which he couldn't touch because it was great. He broke out into screams of derision toward her, basically saying she had no right to question First Dude and Michelle, because she only became famous after appearing on the tv show Survivor. This clip of O'brien laughing and snorting like a jackass, only reinforced my already healthy contempt and dislike for the guy, and confirmed my suspicions that politically hes a mindless kneejerk libber, just like Letterman.

Hedge Fund Hal

Conan's over-the-top ridiculing response to Elisabeth's question, T-S'es extreme, horselaughing dismissal of Dick Morris'es critique of the polling sampling methods, the recent "it's over" hysteria in the media, Blatherwatch libbers constantly quoting poll numbers in hteir posts.....these things have all kind of the same ring and feel to them...."methinks thou doth protest too much".... it really seems like overcompensation in an attempt to cover their basic insecurity and lack of belief at their cores that their guy Obama can really become re-elected.

Observer

I must say you are being ever more vigilant about your vernaculor and spelling. this is good. You're not there yet but progress is being made.

Hedge Fund Hal

vernacular

Observer

Thank you, see you're even approaching the point of being able to correct others, this is a good thing (as Martha would say).

nameless

i'm sorry, i couldn't get pass the "toesucker" part of that post.

chuck

What is this 50 percent thing this dude is stuck on?

Hussein for Obama

No, not me. But I'll show you how more Progressive I am than you. In the day you would be all over the Bush boys about the deaths in Iraq. Well I see you are quiet on today's news. 2000 Americans dead in Afghanistan. As before, I always thought you were just a troll on the progressive movement, citing media matters. Well today I am more convinced you are nothi g but a hack and I'll have nothing more to do with you.
