Well-written, and flaming.

First and foremost, it is not PC to call a shovel a spade. Good Gawd, we have Obambam out there.
WTF is wrong with BillO?
You do not call any tool a spade.
Never. Ever.
On a serious note, will somebody please take Michaels photo shop things away from him? It is for the children. He is scaring the crap out of them. You are fucking with their little heads and we are gonna need a new gummint program to fix them.
How we gonna pay for that program?
The Save The Kids From BlaM's Photo Shop Fright Pictures gummint program?

Hey, O'Reilly isn't a knee jerk type of guy. You may not like him but he is all over the board. He is more of a Populist than anything.

Okay, just a nice youtube find. Ronald Reagan campaigning for Harry Truman. At a time when not many were giving Truman a chance.
Interesting to hear him stumping for Hubert Humphrey et al. So when you hear Ron Reagan speaking today just recall that his Dad made the move not long after Truman got elected.

1948 Reagan

Puget Sound

Obama caught lying on his intentional defunding the troops in the field to stop the Surge. Don't believe us, believe Joe Biden. You remember him, he's the one that said Obama wasn't ready to be Commander in Chief.

Go Joe Biden, Go!

Any comments Skedaddlers?

"According to Joe Biden, the move to defund the troops was deliberate — an attempt to interfere with the surge strategy that wound up winning the war. Biden, Obama, and the rest of the Democrats who voted against the funding wanted to force the administration into a precipitous withdrawal that would have left Iraq a failed state. And it also would have defunded Afghanistan, which Obama has called the central front on the war on terror."


Funny that you seem to only hear of Obama or Biden contradicting each other, not McCain,Palin or other Repubs. closer to the campaign. It seems a lot like the Obama campaign has stuff they are trying to hide so they don't negatively affect the electorate. Of course, the MSM is the big enabler here - they are giving the Manchurian candidate a free pass.

Here is the information of BHO's main mentor back when he was a community organizer - Saul Alinsky.


He has styled his campaign using the principles in Alinsky's book - "Rules for Radicals". See if you can recognize the similarity between the Obama campaign and Alinsky's principals. I don't expect to hear from Ph( Jo)anie or most other Obamaphiles here, but never say never. yada, yada,yada


Should be; "See if you can recognize the similarity between the Obama campaign and Alinsky's principles." (Spelling error corrected)

If you want to get a taste of the Weather Underground, PBS did a good/balanced piece on 'em back in 2002. Many of 'em still alive today are interviewed in this piece to include Bill Ayers/Bernadette Dorn. If memory serves, this PBS documentary would have aired in 2002 around the time that Obama was working closely with him.
Anyway, here is the PBS documentary. It's in 9 parts on Youtube. Parts 6-9 are the best. Each part is about 9 minutes long.

Some of 'em like Rudd are sheepish/ashamed others are unrepentant like Ayers


ROFLMAO at how Bla"M despises Rush and Levin, but if they pile on O'Reilly, their quotes are engraved on BW it is great fun.

I really believe that you do not want the Fairness Doctrine to be signed into law, because if it is and conservative talk radio largely goes tits up, Blatherwatch would soon be on the endangered species list....

blathering michael

KS: BlatherWatch does not support the Fairness Doctrine, never have. It would never pass -- it's but a red herring thrown by right-wingers to try to scare listeners into voting Republican.
And yes, I do love to watch Rush, LeVIN, and Billo fighting among themselves. Like watching a rattlesnake fight a scorpion fight a viper. Delicious!


Despite the disastrous debacle of the 8 year Bush administration, the Republicans will win the White House for an additional 4 years. The Dems have a death wish. Just when they had a landslide victory for a Hillary presidency at their fingertips; they nominated Obama. White America will never put a black man in the White House. No way...No how.


I don't watch O'Reilly. So, what's up with him? He's right. It is mostly the doing of the right starting with Reagan and helped along by Clinton. But, he's got lots of money. Why is he trashing his own?

I don't hear anybody on this blog saying he's wrong. So, you're all idiots? Well, heck, I've been saying that for a long, long time.

Maybe there's an ounce of decency in Billo after all.


If so, that's an ounce more than chucks has.

How's that good little company, WAMU, doing?


I heard Levin make his coments on Friday. Has Bill O had an epithiny? Oberman may now find himself at a loss for materal! NA!

Puget Sound

Finally, on the Bracelet that Obama tried to use to surf in on some of McCain's valor it turns out not only does he not know the name of the soldier but the family has been asking him NOT to wear it for campaign purposes.

Obama, no shame?

Just bad all the way around...


Ho hum.

KS is going to throw acorns at us all day while sputs chants bracelet over and over...

And these are the burning issues on the right?


O'Reilly is a shithead. Lots of economists warned of the impending financial meltdown for several years. Billo never invited them on his show. Standard & Poors, Moody's, and Fitch Ratings always issue warnings about risky investment firms. Billo never invited any of those representatives on his show. Billo preferred to spend hundreds of hours devoted to bogus body language experts.
