Duffman

Rush, Sean, Santorum, etc. et al can't get us out of Afghanistan now but our POTUS and Congress CAN!
Please DemProgs...convince your leaders to ACT NOW and get us out so we don't continue to take these innocent precious lives.
What happened to the pre-election promises...in Denmark?...trying to get the Olympics...not communicating timely with our Generals in Afghan...WTF is going on. This would NOT have happened under Mrs Clinton.
May be you'all will persuade John Edwards to run again in '12, and team up with Pelosi...now THAT would be a 'ticket to ride'...Haha

Duffman

Okay! I can take a hint.

joanie

Distance themselves? They'll never do it.

And it will be Palin/Santorum if she's to be on the ticket again.

It's all ego, ego, ego on the right.

ryder

Joannie, please, its ego ego ego with all these clowns. Let them all rot.

Tod


Thank God there are no egos on the left.

Radio is Dead

Buyer's Remorse?

More dead in Iraq (where are the protesters)

Increase troops in Afghanistan (where are the protesters)

Unemployment at 10%

Economy in the tank with no end in sight

Debt greater than all previous administrrtions combined

Chavez, Ghadafi, Admedjian smiling and laughing

Where's Obama...making a sales pitch for the fucking Olympics!!!!

Duffman

Where's John Edwards when we need him!...Oh...never mind.

Duffman

Where's Mrs Clinton when you need her.

Garrett

Hood: Who does the graphics on the pictures you present? Are they being done in Photoshop, or some other program?

Radio is Dead

When the Olympics are awarded to Rio watch how the Dems and Keith Olberman cry about the IOC is "rascist"!

M.Steele

Radio is Dead;

Oh come now, I have not seen the IOC carrying pictures of Obama with a bone in his nose. And I do not remember IOC officials circulating raciest e-mail. So I wonder where such an extraordinarily intelligent person like you come up with an idea like that?

I am sure Rio would be delighted if they won the bid. I have no doubt that if he is successful and America wins the bid you cons will……well keep circulating those e-mails.

Duffman

May be Mr Santorum can lend his Spriritual guidance accumen to Those Possibly In Need in the not too distant future.

******** Watch Hank **********

***** Tonite Channel 4 *****

M.Steele

Whoa, before Santorum the Sanctimonious finds his way to the general he will have to plough the primary field. He will have to share the stage with Thoughtless Sarah and the Hucklebuck. And do not count out the Sore loser Pawlenty or the Newt. All of which have a strong following manly from the social conservatives. If just two of these possible candidates jump into the race it will split the vote.

sparky

No, chucks, Im watching the PBS special on The National Parks, America's Best Idea.

chucks

I love our National Parks. Took a day trip up to Mt Rainier a couple of weeks ago. Had a great time.
The Hank thing was because the 11 yr old neighbor kid has the part of Kelsey Grammer's son. We are just supportive of a great little kid.

Radio is Dead

As I said above...the Olympics will be awarded to Rio and everyone will cry...poor Obama...poor Messiah...that rascist IOC!

Grand Oligarh

Nah, haven't seen it yet. I think the poster that responded to you the first time got I right. BTW you’re the only one crying race here. Projecting?

AuthenticAndrew

The election of a black president is causing a wacky schizophrenia in conservatives. They're becomingly openly racist after fifty years of relative civility. They're accusing others of being racist. They're letting out this idea that only white people are actually American with Glenn Beck's talk of "white culture" which none of them dare define but all believe to exist as such.

In the same way that Monson unleashes a misogynistic slant in his criticism of Gregoire, conservatives treat Obama, who soundly defeated McCain as if he's an illegitimate president, a Manchurian candidate, or a Kenyan in the White House. Someone whispers these sentiments in the shadows and Red America collectively nods in agreement and has a cathartic moment.

I don't think conservatives are bad people, they're just very frightened, particularly of people who don't look like their mothers and fathers.

sparky

Michelle Bachman Turner Overdrive was at the mic yesterday, telling her followers how schools are going to set up medical clinics that would offer abortions. And she repeated it several times in her speech, pretending to read something official off a sheet of wrinkly paper. I swear these people meet for a beer after work and divvy up fresh lists of lies every night.

Grand Oligarh

Yea see ray dee oh, we see right through you and your kind.

Drew

As usual radio, your forecast was all wrong- when Rio got the award, everybody from Drudge to Rush to Hannity was spouting the same exact talking points, about how this was a great victory for America that we lost. What is it that you cons just love to see people stay unemployed? How is that good for America, unless you don't care what the collateral damage is, as long as you take a democrat down?

chimchim

Think about this. The leaders of the right make fun of America and Chicago at their own peril. As they make Chicago out as a laughing stock the Democrats will get a leg up in the junior senate seat in Chi town.

Real Conservative

Will you clowns get it right? They are using Beck against us. I shake my head and wonder if you dullards were born in a permanent cranium in anus position.

Radio is Dead

The Olympics are a sham...the only one to make a profit was Atlanta but the IOC regretted that choice because the event was a wall to wall Coca Cola advertisement.

KS

I figured that Rio might get the Olympics in 2016, because they deserved it more and South America had never hosted them before.

Yes, I was hoping that the Chicago team would lose - in order to bring humility back at the POTUS, since he needed to be knocked down a rung to mere "mortality". Hint: I would not play the race card here, but am almost expecting some pinhead leftist to do just that.

From an economic standpoint it was also good the we lost, because Calgary had just finished payback of their debt from 21 years ago and we don't need more debt.

Duffman

Mayor Daly and City of Chicago need to focus on doing something about the needless youth killing taking place in that city; it's good that they are not hosting the Olympics...which (except to the 'honest' competition) is a farce and a typical 'follow-the-money' fiasco.

KS

Yes, Chicago needs to start the monumental process of cleaning up their own backyard before they again consider hosting an Olympics, which has become a financial drain - very inefficiently run. It's a silver lining that Chicago fell short.

Just waiting to hear from the Lib Progs in unison that this failure was Bush's fault.

Duffman

Hahaha...good one KS, ain't that the truth.
They have a lot to deal with...Edwards, POTUS failure at Olympics draw, Letterman...and on and on and on...it's not a good day to be a liberal-progressive demoscrat. They've had their provervial 'nuts crushed'...as is said by the litany of aliases herein.

KS

"It's all ego, ego, ego on the right."

And then we have the POTUS, who went to Copenhagen with the Chicago contingent and came back with their heads between their legs, but nevertheless when they returned, one on-line publication's headlines read:

"THE EGO HAS LANDED"

So true...

Puget Sound

I am very happy for Rio to get the Olympics. It is their chance to have center stage by bringing the international spotlight upon them.

Good for them.

And yes, 'The Ego Has Landed' was a nice headline.

AuthenticAndrew

Conservatives Revel In America's Olympic Defeat

and it was only a short time ago that conservatives accused liberals of "hating America first." Now the shoe is on the other foot.

Puget Sound

AA
I'll be honest with you. The days of looking at the Olympics as 'America vs the Commies' have long been over for me. Yes, back in the day I loved it when USA beat the Russians or East Germans, etc.
I got over that the minute the Wall came down and Glastnot came into being.

Today, I see the Olympics as a chance to watch the worlds best athletes on the world stage. No more, no less. I don't even watch the NBC version if I can help it and usually go for Canadian TV in lieu of the American channel. I get sooooo damn tired of our networks being so USA-centric. It gets boring.

Plus, the USA has hosted the Olympics a number of times and it isn't as big a deal for us to host 'em again.

Let Rio have its day in the sun. Pres Obama tried his best to get the Games in Chicago and it didn't work out.
We'll survive.


AA, you've been curiously silent on that Earth First act of terrorism. I guess just biding your time to 'rub it in' after shooting off your mouth. Too bad the facts haven't kept pace.

AuthenticAndrew

let the FBI do their thing

Puget Sound

ah, but you didn't wait for the FBI did you. instead you ran your pie-hole and announced to any and all that you had solved the crime. those awful conservative homeowners had done it you told all of us. and then you were so sure of yourself you promised to rub it in.
hmm, that's a far cry from 'waiting for the FBI to solve it' pardoner.

Coiler

We know Tim Mc Veigh wasn't a liberal. The right wing noise machine was feeding a lot of impressionable youth back then.

AuthenticAndrew

that's like saying bookies should wait until after the super bowl to make the odds; this would defeat the purpose.

it's not over until it's over.

M.Steele

Puget Sound;
Do you hate our President so much that you would wish dreadful consequences on our people? That is the height of hatred of our country. Any respect you have garnered has been lost by your inane comment.

joanie

Can't believe no one is talking about the Brook's article on Beck:

"...But this is not merely a story of weakness. It is a story of resilience. For no matter how often their hollowness is exposed, the jocks still reweave the myth of their own power. They still ride the airwaves claiming to speak for millions. They still confuse listeners with voters. And they are aided in this endeavor by their enablers. They are enabled by cynical Democrats, who love to claim that Rush Limbaugh controls the G.O.P. They are enabled by lazy pundits who find it easier to argue with showmen than with people whose opinions are based on knowledge. They are enabled by the slightly educated snobs who believe that Glenn Beck really is the voice of Middle America.

So the myth returns. Just months after the election and the humiliation, everyone is again convinced that Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity and the rest possess real power. And the saddest thing is that even Republican politicians come to believe it. They mistake media for reality. They pre-emptively surrender to armies that don’t exist.

They pay more attention to Rush’s imaginary millions than to the real voters down the street. The Republican Party is unpopular because it’s more interested in pleasing Rush’s ghosts than actual people. The party is leaderless right now because nobody has the guts to step outside the rigid parameters enforced by the radio jocks and create a new party identity. The party is losing because it has adopted a radio entertainer’s niche-building strategy, while abandoning the politician’s coalition-building strategy.

The rise of Beck, Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and the rest has correlated almost perfectly with the decline of the G.O.P. But it’s not because the talk jocks have real power. It’s because they have illusory power, because Republicans hear the media mythology and fall for it every time...."

All our clueless little rightwingers on ths blog: enjoy your little niche as it gets smaller and smaller and smaller. On the left, we're smiling like never before.

joanie

Sorry. I should have posted on "beck, beck and more beck..."

Drew

Hey, Joanie, post it there as well. Your post has some very important points. Too bad these charter-school cons can't read- can you find the time to go back and find an article with more pictures for them? Maybe fewer poly-syllabic words would help them too.

Puget Sound

still mad about the gov gregoire dealie,eh?

Puget Sound

ignoring inconvenient truths, painting with a broad brush, etc. i'll bet you got a liberal version of 'rush is right' hat somewhere...
too funny.

the amazing thing is that you don't see the same stuff going on with Randi, Olberman, Malloy, to name a few.

try this sometime. listen with a critical ear to someone you disagree with like Savage or Beck and someone you agree with like Malloy or Randi on the radio. you'll note a similarity of style. the us vs them, the broad brush, the seizing on a current event to make a ridiculous claim (such as blackwater starting the fires in southern california).

in terms of 'taking back the blog' it's always been blam's blog. we are all just guests as he pays the freight. sometimes when we overstep our bounds we get uninvited.

i wish all of you the best.

M.Steele

As far as the governor argument, you are using the Duffman tactic “I win because I will not acknowledge you are right” is small ball. And you hide under the skirt of censorship rather than answer to your anti American sentiment. You are over exposed Putz and are now dummying down your posts.

KS

Meanwhile, you are continuing to say nothing of substance in your posts.

Duffman

M.Steele, why are you lying?

M.Steele

Oh gosh, speaking of small balls.

sparky

Hah!

Puget Sound

c'mon M Steele,
elevate the discussion.

M.Steele

Really Putz? Your anti American rhetoric is asinine and your response was to “play gotcha”. I answer your questions whether you agree with them or not, why not answer mine?

Do you hate our President so much that you would wish dreadful consequences on our people? That is the height of hatred of our country. Any respect you have garnered has been lost by your inane comment.
