Michael Savage orchestrated the termination of the British Home Secretary. That is extremely impressive. Savage is much more influential than I thought.

joanie

And you're much less intelligent than I thought.

KS

And you are just as in denial and foolish as I thought.

Coiler

Yes, many Britons listen to Savage instead of the BBC. It must be true.

Corporate Suit

Suit
He hasn't been sentenced yet. They will seek a sentence of more than 12 years. Reading comprehension counts.

AuthenticAndrew

Not to be macabre but I was looking forward to a dramatic court battle, something we will not get now. Damn you Scott White, whoever you are.

Drew

"Michael Savage orchestrated the termination of the British Home Secretary. That is extremely impressive. Savage is much more influential than I thought."

With comments that disconnected from reality, if this guy represents the cons, it's no wonder why we won. We're gonna be in charge for a long while.

KS

Let's see, Savage is more influential than Olberfurher, Maddow, Malloy and Schultz to name some liberal progressive spokesmouths. He can be obnoxious, tenacious and is his own person. How is there any correlation between him and the loony left being in charge. Have you ever listened to him ? Doubtful...

Sure, go ahead and believe that "your" liberal progressive/ fascists will be in charge for a long time and get lulled into a false sense of security. What goes around comes around...

M.Steele

KS

Get hold of yourself. No need to come unglued this early in the evening.

HoChiMinh

Don't ask any one to 'get a hold of themselves' okay. This is a family blog and the connotation of that phrase conjures up images that are not family-oriented. Now, I won't tell you again and I urge you to stay more focused on the topic at hand (no play on words intended). Try to make yourself useful, put your mind to it and give it your best shot (oops, there we go again); I'm sure you can do better.

Drew

Actually, I did have to listen to Weiner a few times. The most vile thing I heard from him was when the problem had surfaced of the insurgents in Iraq seeking refuge from pursuant U.S. soldiers by running into neighborhood mosques, where soldiers cannot follow. Weiner's logic- bomb the mosques into the ground. And while we're at it, when we get done there, bomb the mosques in the U.S. as well. At that point I knew that anyone who looks forward to listening to weiner supports him. If weiner is influential, then we can expect to be at war with everybody for a long time, ironically influenced by someone who steered clear of the military by holeing up in his NYC apartment and growing pot.

Yes, weiner is a maggot crawling over the rotting garbage pile of the failed policies and philosophies of the ultra-right. In contrast, we are in charge now. Making weiner and his ratings pretty much irrelevant to the rest of the world now.

M.Steele

. I never listen to the guy. Heard him once a few years back and the shrill from the radio was worst than 3 year olds discovering they have a screaming voice. If this guy is anything like the rest of the right wing noise machine I wish him well. And may he have an audience that will speak, write and display their adulation just like him. I’m speaking of KS.

M.Steele

HoChiMinn...nicely done.

HoChiMinh

Haha, you've a sense of humor MS, can't be all bad. [smile]

M.Steele

Hey, I’m only here to point out the hypocrisy.

KS

Well stated, Ho. I like to play devil's advocate here, being that it is a family blog - no adulation, just feel compelled to balance out the rhetoric. If the left loves to hate him, he believes he is doing his job.

It might surprise you that Savage turned against the Iraq War after we were there for a year and thought that Bush was the worst wartime president ever.

Listening to him is like a roller coaster ride. I get pissed off at him when he degrades certain people. He is intelligent and quick-witted but is just as nasty as the left wing shock types like Rhodes, Malloy and Schultz.

M.Steele

KS, are you kidding? Schultz is a shock type? What has he said that was shocking?

M.Steele

After all Savage is talking the type of conspiracies that would make Oliver Stone howl

joanie

Goes to show how clueless Klueless really is. Schultz is a midwestern corn-fed football fan with a hometown way of talking politics over the fence.

He antagonizes very few people because he gives everyone a chance to have their say. I like him.

Klueless, do you listen to anybody you talk about on this blog?

joanie

Is that picture of Rumpole of the Bailey? I say, I'd never attach such a fine example of jurisprudence to a blog about the weiner...

Coiler

She who must be obeyed! Where is Hilda?

KS

I don't care if Schultz comes from Alberta (actually he is from North Dakota)

Yes, Ms. Knee-jerk - I have listened to Schultz, Malloy and Rhodes several times in the last few months. Schultz is controversial just like all of the others, but to a lesser degree and does allow people to talk. How do you know that he antagonizes very few people - just because he doesn't antagonize you...

Now, do you ever listen to Beck or Savage ?

Puget Sound

actually, Tommy 008 is the real Savage fan on this blog.
haven't seen Tommy here for awhile. maybe he'll come back and favor us with some more of his writings.

Puget Sound

Hey, I’m only here to point out the hypocrisy.

Posted by: M.Steele | June 04, 2009 at 08:04 PM

that only works when you're willing to go either way with it.

KS

In order to be a talk-jock, controversy sells. You may not think of Ed Schultz as controversial, while I do.

I don't think Brian and the Judge are very controversial, but alot of you probably do. It's in the mind of the beholder.

M.Steele

You say he’s a shock jock, maybe to a lesser degree, but I’m asking what is so shocking. I understand I may not find “shocking” you may find paralyzing. So, let me know…where as your sensibilities.

joanie

Finally, is anybody else as proud of our President as I am? His speech today was respectful and given with an outstretch hand. It is so refreshing to hear cooperative words rather than sabers rattling for a change.

He is a grown up.

joanie

Oh, and he even harkened back to our fifties CIA overthrow of the democratically elected government of Mosedegh (sp?). It is like finally coming home to the truth after a long, long absence.

Malloy is reading the NY Times article. I heard parts of it on Maddow.

Thank god for Obama. He may not please me completely. But we finally have an adult back in charge. He is a decent and literate man.

joanie

Now, do you ever listen to Beck or Savage ?

Hell no! And I don't hang out with the Hell's Angels either.

joanie

Steele, deal with this idiot. I haven't the patience. Schultz a shock jock?

Good grief! It is impossible to take klueless seriously. Absolutely impossible.


Malloy just said something interesting and true about Obama: he doesn't come off as arrogant or superior.

That's true isn't it? Maybe that's what I like best about him.

Coiler

He is doing a better job than idiot Bush. He mentioned the 1953 coup in Iran was a mistake.

M.Steele

Yah Puget Sound, I cringed when I posted that. The word hypocrisy seems so rigid or right leaning. I should have said I’m here to support the liberal way of thinking and rebuff the extreme right. Which I’m finding only exist here in a very small way. I may be wrong; some righties may pop out of their hidey holes. You know the KS the street fighter brigade.

Oh, also make fun of the stupider things written.

joanie

He has a sense of history. He may become one of our greatest presidents of all time. Do you think, coiler? He has a sense of greatness and timelessness about him.

Drew

Obama is doing more in the first few weeks of his first term to promote peace than bush ever wanted to in eight horrific years. As we continue to push for investigations of the last administration, we likely will find that cheney/bush was the worst administration we've ever had.

M.Steele

Joanie, I was wondering when someone would get to that. His forward leaning vision tempered with the realities of the times. He’s what this country needs. You know Churchill was a writer also.

Coiler

Yes.

Coiler

Yes, they could of fired Rove but instead they have become worse than Nixon's CREEP. Funny how Bush is not on tv or doing some cheesy charity. Cheney is practically begging for air time these days after 8 years in the bunker.

Drew

And with or without a teleprompter, Obama knows how to get a message across, mainly because he thinks first. I was just looking at website of bushisms (it's a few pages long), about half of which were done while bush was supposed to be reading from prepared text. What a total embarassment he was.

Drew

Cheney is trying very hard to poison the jury pool. People guilty of crimes do that.

Coiler

Oh indeed, plus he had the goofy pack under his jacket during the 2004 debates. What was that about?

joanie

Why were you waiting for someone else to get to that? Why didn't you, Steele?

M.Steele

Oh I thought it was going to come from the other side.

Drew

Coiler- "...in our electronic age, we use transmidders, remote receevers, lil" tiny ear things, so my helpers can help me when i get in a bind on something, like an issue or something. I can't be expeckted ta know everthing, ya know? Besides, it beets the ol' way of havin Karl's hand up the back o' my jacket like the Charlie McCarthy dummie."

"Finally, is anybody else as proud of our President as I am? His speech today was respectful and given with an outstretch hand. It is so refreshing to hear cooperative words rather than sabers rattling for a change.

He is a grown up."

I heard Malloy gushing over him - He speaks like an eloquent adult but acts like a narcissistic juvenile when it comes to his policies - he's a real dolt when it comes to the economy and spending us into prosperity - a bad joke ! He doesn't even seem curious about alternative plans - like another former President who just retired (grin). Apparently, unlike a number of you, I place value in walking your talk. Hopefully, he will learn to wise up and listen to more fiscally saavy people, other than Geithner.

"Now, do you ever listen to Beck or Savage ?

Hell no! And I don't hang out with the Hell's Angels either."

Lame...Good God, before you run off on the blog about them, don't show your ignorance and know what they really say, not what the corrupt drive-by media wants you to believe they say - you are not even curious about alternative views ? Sorry to say, that's not uncommon -no wonder this country is looking more and more like a paper tiger.

Coiler

As Keith would say, WTF?

Drew


KS, you've already forgotten, the website is BlatherWatch- listening to talk radio so you don't have to.

Beck, Weiner, and all of your other favorites who claim patriotism but have no problem tearing down a democracy to serve their own needs get all the exposure we need right here. Their lies exposed, even for you to see. We don't have to change the dial. Michael's doing the dirty work for us.


M.Steele

“He speaks like an eloquent adult but acts like a narcissistic juvenile when it comes to his policies”

And what polices are those? Do you have a better one?

“he's a real dolt when it comes to the economy”

Again you have a better way of coming out of this slump without driving us into a deeper ditch?

“He doesn't even seem curious about alternative plans”

Now how do you know that? Let us all know about his lack of intellectual curiosity.

“I place value in walking your talk.”

Oh really, he believes in bipartisan problem solving. What do you believe in “street fighter”?

“Hopefully, he will learn to wise up and listen to more fiscally saavy people,”

And who are these savvy people?

I’m not going to address the Savage thing because I want you to go door to door 2012 and spew this drivel. I sure you’ll get the support you want from the extreme right.

joanie

Alternative views? Hate? Am I curious about that?

Get a life, KS.

Drew

Hmmm, let's measure this sucker...

“Hopefully, he will learn to wise up and listen to more fiscally saavy people,” You mean like the GOP Minority in congress who can't (or won't) write a counter-proposal on the budget?
