KS what does that have to do with the number of assistants Tommy said accompanied Michelle Obama?

joanie

I was in a hurry to get to work..

Weren't you the one you gave it to me? Life can be confusing. LOL.

BTW, hurry to get to work - true. How did that blame anybody else? You really have a problem being accountable for your own mistakes, don't you?

joanie

KS continues to suffer from Soroitis Algorithium found in medical journals as "highly propagandized to the point of obsession."

KS

Coils gets it wrong again.

Soros owns few radio stations - except for NPR, but has shares in ABC and CBS along with the Media Matters, Huff Post and scattered other communist sympathizing websites that he worships.

Radio Queen

Actually, I went back to both sources (snopes and factcheck) and the data is pretty similar. Jackie Kennedy's staff info was missing from factcheck. Guess 60 years was too old to mention. No mistake--just two different Internet sources.

sparky

But where does it say that Michelle Obama took 41 staff with her when she went to South Africa? I think Tommy just made a huge leap of assumption.

Tommy008

i didnt make any leaps- Savage said she was travelling South Africa with 41 assistants. Take it up with him. he could have been engaging in hyperbole and exaggeration but the jist of his point is valid, when you take the 30 month totatlity of the First Lady's behavior. A Marie Antoinette, priviledged little queen type of thing...the trip to Spain.....etc....everyone is looking at her bnehavior and they are appalled.....

Coiler

Don't you have a spell check for someone who talks about making a killing in the stock market?

Dutch

See what you get when you listen to people who lie.

sparky

Just as I expected....

HAHA. Yeah, keep being willfully ignorant and a Soros sympathizer, which is synonomous with a Marxist sympathizer. Isn't George Soros your daddy warbucks ?

Tommy008

its not spell check.... its typing speed... i can outspell any one of you in a spelling bee.....i need to slightly slow down my typing speed, and correct mistakes before pressing print...do you honestly believe i think the word is spelled "totatlity"......don't flatter yourself into a false sense of superiority

Tommy008

i wonder if Jovita and Coiler are aware of the fact that the type of petty, niggling little posts they aim at me regularly, the equivalent of little grade school brats throwing spitwads at me as i sit at the head of the class, are , according to a renowned psychologist who did a study on bloggers, virtually always sent by men with very small penises......he mentioned the two to three inches (erect) range .......

KS

LMAO - spot on T008. Michael Savage referred to George Soros as one of the most evil tyrants in the world - he has documented evidence that Soros helped orchestrate the 2008 economic collapse in his new book - Trickle up Poverty.

That's plays into why someone like Joanie admires him.

jovita is bemused by Tommy's shrinkage

Gawd, Tommy, you gonna advertise your shortcomings, erect or fascile? ROFLMAO

Anti-Dori

Your so-called sources are Savage? That explains all, my friends. Why would you regard Savage as an expert on anything?

KS

AD - I don't recall referring to Mr. Savage as an expert, just someone with a keen mind (Ph.D in Epidemeology) and conservative - which evidently bothers you. I also see George Will as a conservative with a keen mind, who is more visible. Have you ever listened to Savage ?

joanie

Epidemeology is not political science, history or even politics. Have you ever listened to David Sirota? Who brought up George Will? Savage didn't get the reputation for "sewage" and the honor of being refused as an "expert talker" in a foreign country because he is smart, KS.

Only ignorant fools would post what you just posted.

Tommy008

KS- she hasn't even listened to him, trust me. Epedemiology is a legitimate, hardnosed field of study, unlike ethnic studies or some such dreck, and a Ph. D. from U.C.Berkeley in the subject (Savage's Degree) is the top of the line, or top cabin, as Grandpa Steensma used to say. Savage has a sophisticated, nuanced mind, not conducive to obstinant, ideological conservative or liberal "purity". Hence his disdain for Repug shills like Rush and Hannity. He has attacked Rush many times ON THE AIR, most notably for his "know nothing" attitude toward animal rights and ecology issues.

joanie

Who said epidemiology wasn't an honorable field? See, you guys can't discern anything and yet you think you know what's best for the country? You prove yourself a fool with every post, gollum. And you wouldn't know a nuanced mind if it slapped you in the face everyday on this blog which it does. :)

Savage has disdain for everybody and everything just like you. It is your identity card.

Tommy008

"expert talker"?bwahahah is she talking the "banned in Britain" issue? ..that had nothing to do with "expert talker" nonsense.Savage was banned from ever entering Britain, period, by governement official who have been bending over and grabbing their ankles, in the politically correctr position, for years, in craven fear of British Muslim demands and complaints and those of other minorities in the country.

joanie

See, excuses and disdain. Just sayin'... You prove my post.

Tommy008

yes, it's fair to say we have "disdain" for her, KS. not very difficult at all.

Tommy008

bwahahahaahaha she keeps repeating that she's "smarter" than me, KS, as if mere repetition of a claim would make it so. Methinks the "lady" doth protest too much.....

joanie

"the mere repetition..." Isn't that what the right-wing message machine is?

At least your last two posts were short. Thank you.

Tommy008

no the post mentioning epedemiology as a rigorous, highly repsected field of study plus the denoting that a PHd. from Berkeley is as good as it gets, was not a gratuitous, foolish post, as the hag claimed. She may have not made any disparagements of epedemiology in the immediately preceding post, but that's irrelevant. My purpose in making the post was to cut the rug out from under her "FALLBACK POSITION" . she has unfairly claimed that my "fallback" position in everything is "disdain". The hag's fallback for position for anyone to the right of her politically , who dares disagree with her, is "intellectual superiority". It's a game she's played for years, this bogus, "smarter than thou" conceit as a defense for anyone and everyone who counters her, to the right, politically. . Thats why it was important to confront her, in detail, with the background of a fellow like Savage, who is clearly smart, even brilliant, and no question smarter than she is herself, if she was to be honest with herself. We don't expect the hag to admit that Savage is smarter than her, simply acknowledging that he is an intelligent man would be enough. But, as all can see, she's not even capable of doing that.

joanie

It's a game that is easy to play with players like you. I'm laughing. Get over it, Tommy. Your explanations are blowing in the wind.

joanie

Hmmm. I'm thinking of a Halberstam book The Best and the Brightest. Yes, they were smart, too. But nuance is not your thing, is it?

KS

Who said epidemiology wasn't an honorable field? See, you guys can't discern anything and yet you think you know what's best for the country.

Posted by: joanie

What in the hell do you know about epidemiology, Joanie Alinsky ? Nada. Who's your daddy warbucks ?
George Soros, that's who. I know it will be a challenge, Get over yourself !

joanie

About as much as you do, idiot. At least I know how to spell it. "Help, help! The know-nothings are calling me names again!"

"That means you're winning, joanie!"

"Okay."

Hahahahahahahahahahaha!

KS

Hahaha. Joanie Alinsky - You have not proven anything except that you know how to obfuscate. You are name calling in response, because you have nothing else to offer.

"Savage has disdain for everybody and everything just like you. It is your identity card."

Posted by: joanie | June 26, 2011 at 12:05 PM

You have projected spot on. It should read; Joanie has disdain for everybody and everything just like you. It is her identity card.

BTW - I have disdain for you in return and all of your marxist sympathizing.

joanie

Neener, neener. You are Anthony's weener.

Sorry, guys. Mom's calling. I gotta go in now. But you two can keep playing. See ya later. Hey, you guys. I see Putsie sneaking around the corner. Have fun.

Tommy008

Bachmann has alerady proved shes a small time , ergional punk, not qualified to run the U.S.A ....Chris Wallace made a gracious onair apology for a poorly worded , perhaps insulting question he asked her on the weekend show. SHe was asked if she accepted his apology......she refused and chose to bloviate instead...she was asked a second time and she flatly refused again and made some meaningless comment, instead....bad move......estrogen -based emotionalism and poor sportsmanship and the U.S. presidency don't mix with ambitions to be President. She did perhaps what the normal woman would do...but the Presidency isn't for the normal...it's for the exceprional and the great people.......sorry....fail......

Tommy008

i didn't expect Bachmann to start going down so early.....yesterday the Constitutuinal amendment on gay marriage and now today's glaring failure.....

Tommy008

Palin has also showed that same kind of pettiness.
