Putsy, you can relax...I said we will all agree with you from now on...you dont have to work so hard.
All your problems are solved.

Whatever Puts says, I say All right!

Pugetsound

"Hey Puget,
Could you forward the steps on how to hotlink messages like that ? I thought that the clip might be instructive for those who actually think Olberman is intelligent.

Chris Wallace has some history to back up what he said, let alone his father, who is one of the legends of the news industry."

Spot on KS.
In regards to Olby, I would be laughing at him if he was on the right or the left. His routine is hysterical. Do you recall the movie Network with Howard Beale the messaniac anchor who proclaims he is 'mad as hell and isn't gonna take it anymore!'
Feel free to call me Puts.

Pugetsound

I'm not going with message boards, both sides play that game.
I am just taking the actual link of Chris Wallace and his take on Olby. No more and no less. Quick question, why won't Olby bring on guests that disagree with him?

sparky

All Right!

ray

So the hotair site is really just that?

JDB

Pugetsound and KS:

Thanks for sharing Wallace's little whine. Strange how those going down in the ratings always whine. Of course, since Keith just keeps going up and up, he doesn't have to whine like a stuck pig.

But it is wonderful how KO sticks in your craws. It must be hard watching everything you believe in crumble because of the lies and corruption that appear to be inherent in conservatism. That is why this is something that you will never see over at Un(sp), as the conservatives hate dealing with facts:

Sen. Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, noted that among the shifting reasons given for firing prosecutors was failure to energetically pursue voter-fraud investigations.

Schumer asked [FBI Director] Mueller if he was aware of any FBI voter-fraud probe that should have resulted in an indictment but did not.

"Not to my knowledge,” the FBI director replied.

Duffman

Puts: nice to see the pendelum swing the other way once in a while! You certainly have a way of presenting data; these folks can't seem to keep up with you.
Guess I could learn from you.

Duffman

From Puts post to Snarky:
"Hey, I would leave the writing to Tommy 008. He is much better.
You wrote what you wrote I put it in full quotes. And the several posters consisted of you and your two minions."

Key word 'minions'. You know I was always wondering why Merci was using the term 'we', 'us' all the time and now it seems clear. He apparently DOES speak for all of his minions here. They have yet to individually discount themselves from any of his posts - thus I must deduce they agree and are 'minions'. Lemmings...how sad...Kool Aid analogy becoming clearer all the time.

joanie

Putsie, Duff, KS, and Steve . . . now that's a group of smart (read Forest Gump) people if I've ever seen one!

Putsie the organizer who files every post; Duff the antiintellectual who votes on gut instincts (thanks for Bush and Cheney, Duff), KS who cites George Taylor, Oregonian climatologist as his/her global warming expert; and Steve who is more interested in sex and Sparky than anything political - also for not reenlisiing in his glorious war.

What a shining example of American society.

Duffman

really didn't figure you for a minion...but alas we learn something every day.

Duffman

"What a shining example of American society."

..indeed; independent and free thinking how refreshing..just as our forefathers (& mothers) advocated

joanie

really didn't figure you for a minion.

Guess you can't trust those gut instincts, Duff.

joanie

really didn't figure you for a minion.

Guess you can't trust those gut instincts, Duff.

Duffman

Yet twice the impact! Ha ha that's Okay...know you were probably in a hurry...

Pilgrim

Just for the record..George Taylor is not a climatologist..he is a meteorologist.

Duffman

"Just for the record..George Taylor is not a climatologist..he is a meteorologist."

GREAT! I think they're having one of those days.

mercifurious

Occam's razor wake-up call, Duffman (AKA GOP ratfucker):

Perhaps these so-called "minions" simply disagree with you because you've never presented anything substantial to back-up your claims...

... well, aside from WingNutDaily, Drudge, A Serbian fascist, and your omnipotent entrails.

Yes, Occam would conclude that your craven stupidity is the simplest solution to why you regularly "take a beating" on this board.

KS

Thanks Ph(J)oanie for your acknowledgement. I'll also cite Dr. Cliff Mass and Dr. Mark Albright at UW, who chastised the media for their exaggeration of global warming and pointed out how they misled with statistics.

Albright was "demoted" from Climatologist (voluntary) because he didn't tow the politically correct line about global warming from his superior (one of your people JDB and Ph(j)oanie...) who like to suppress the truth if it doesn't agree with their world.

The only reason Olberman's ratings have gone up a little are riding on the coattails of negative opinion of the War in Iraq. Fox News Sunday's ratings have not suffered because they present both sides of the issue with Juan Williams, who I tend to agree with on that topic.

Duffman

"Whatever Puts says, I say All right!"
I will copy the MO of one of your minions (Snarky) in a post to 'Puts': since this is a 'dead issue' (as stated by another of your minions) I will respond accordingly:
All Right!

Pilgrim

Ks,

Both Albright and Mass (again, both meteorologists) agree global warming is ocurring and that man has a role in same.

Duffy is the old woman who sits on the bench in front of city hall and desparately tries to engage anyone who walks by. Has an opinion on everything, but no knowledge of any facts beyond what is covered in an issue of Reader's Digest. Would be humorous if it wasn't so pathetic.

Duffman

All Right!

Steve

Joanie is confused again. Can't wait til spring break is over and she gets back in form.

Duffenais

"Duffy is the old woman who sits on the bench in front of city.."

Pilgrim: why are discriminating against females and the elderly? Is that a true progressive trait. Better be a good minion ya know.

Pilgrim

Duffenais,

Find a dictionary and look up "discriminate" - you aren't even close.

Duffman

Whoops...sorry did I hit a revealing trait? [Hope you don't get scolded by mother minion.]

Last night Stephanie Miller was on Larry King, along with Ed Schultz and the Evil Lars Larson. Lars went on and on about how the Edwards' had planned this cancer thing to beat the March 31 deadline ( what deadline that is, he didnt say). Later they were talking about Jim Webb's aide being arrested for carrying Webb's gun into the Senate office building...Lars said " I ALWAYS carry a gun,"
Stephanie smiled at him and said " Lars, I have heard your show. I understand why you need a gun."

shoreke

Cancer is God's way of telling Tony Snow it is a mortal sin to lie for the Bush Administration.

coiler

Yes, Lars is another nutcase. VG!

sparky

shoreke, if that were true, Karl Rove would have expired by now.

KS

Ks,

"Both Albright and Mass (again, both meteorologists) agree global warming is ocurring and that man has a role in same."

Never said that they didn't. Focus, pilgrim - everyone agrees on global warming/its the extent of it is where opinions differ. Mass/Albright differ about the long term reduction of snowpack based on their longer term data. Re: Man's role - there is some- they don't know and noone, let alone the Goracle (lol) know. That's where the hysterical tactics by the environmentalists are employed to sign on to their agenda of controlling masses of people through carbon-taxes and the like and impacting the world economy.

Duffman

Pilgram tends to 'focus' on elderly women sitting on a bench in front of city hall...
Hmmmmmm!

chucks

So what might Mrs Edwards mortal sin be? Is it a sin to lie for the Edwards wanna be administration?
Come on shoreke, we have plenty of real issues to fight over.
I have this article in my hot little hands. Newsweek, April 28, 1975 talking about climate change and global cooling. The coming ice age.
The drop in food output could begin quite soon. The regions destined to become the most effected are the great wheat-producing lands of Canada and the USSR in the north.
The central fact is that after three quarters of a century of extraordinarily mild conditions, the earths climate seems to be cooling down.
"If the climate change is as profound as some of the pessimist fear, the resulting famines could be catastrophic."

cinco

I just can't help but ask you global warming-doubting rightwingers--WHAT IF YOU'RE WRONG????

KS

I guess if the global warming rightwingers are wrong - the liberals who live near the coastline will pay the price as they be submerged. Bummer, dudes and dudettes...

With that said, it is highly doubtful if that catastrophic sea level rise will occur. But if you leftwingers hysterics want to think this and freak out - its a free country.

Duffman

KS: they'd likely be marching towards the sea anyway...with MM (mother minion) leading the way..

chucks

cinco
That is the same thing we asked the ice age-doubting right wingers in the mid- seventy's. Now that I am a right winger, I just want to see more proof.
Of coarse that will not stop me from trying to reduce my energy use. Even if global warming turns out to be another left wing farce, I recognize that wasting natural resources is stupid.
Wish that I could afford to make my house as energy efficient as GWB's Crawford house. But I will continue to cut my personal use.
Best Regards
Chuck

yes, Pebble Beach Golf Course would be a good start to launch a GOP tournament. Good thinking King Shit!

Revealing more and more about progressives.

KS

Be careful what you wish for, Collier - it could come back and bite you in the a$$.

Duffman

"yes, Pebble Beach Golf Course would be a good start to launch a GOP tournament. Good thinking King Shit!"

Oh how clever...see these minions can only go so far before the vile language sets in.

Pilgrim

Chucks,

Check this out.

I wish for all republicans to go to hell. except for a few, Hagel is ok, but Rove and Cheney are at the top, okay?

cowpotpi3

Duff its interesting that you'd choose to use that off hand (and clearly a double-entendre at that) to throw something in the face of "progressives." Point being the right is fond of damning evil liberals and moralizing, I believe the poster was throwing their vitriol back in their collective faces. Blaming progressives for right wing hypocrisy via satirical statements is even a stretch for you.

cowpotpi3

Chucks, you might want to update yourself from that '75 article in Newsweek (which I bet you became aware of thanks to that well known climatologist Dennis Miller on Letterman's show). If you take a look yourself you can see that was a speculative theory among a small slice of scientists even then...indeed the article itself was retracted later by Newsweek.

Hey it's fine if you want to believe in crazy stuff like that and cow farts...just ask yourself how far out on that limb you'll go to ignore fact and science.

sparky

Oh, MF is going to have some fun....

Duffman

An ode to the minions.

Oh mommy mommy, what shall we do
'Ol Duffman is saying we are too blue
We thought you exposed him as just a ratfucker
But now we fear we've been played for a sucker
Fear not little minnies, your leader am I
We'll Gorbal warm him - 'till he starts to fry
And the data we'll sort into nice little stacks
We'll cut, paste and link him...with insurmountable facts

So rest easy my lemmings, yes one and all..
Now go play little ones 'till next
time I call.

Fremont

I gotta commend JDB on yesterday's hilarious Snow-post...black humor lives!!

Putz: I WILL ADMIT I AM NOT A MINION IF YOU WILL ADMIT YOU ARE NOT AN ATTORNEY. Deal?..

coiler

The Snow piece should be in the Onion, very good.

Fremont

Cute, Duf....very cute.

Tommy008

Sean Hannity said he is going to read some of the "just awful" thing written about Tony Snow on the blogs in the past two days, later in his radio show. Are you goign to play tapes of fatass Limbaugh, America's favorite pig, , as he trashed Edwards and his wife fortheir cancer decision, with the help of his bovine redstate dumbass bitches that called in with their catty comments?
