    comments are gone again! we better not write a clue to that winning lotto ticket here! Put it on a piece of paper in the cookie jar!

  • Ralph Hahn

    I know a lot of folks whoe extended their Easter/Passover holiday through Monday, so last night’s numbers seem back to normal.

  • Joan

    Yes the number are good even with O’Reilly out. Good numbers for Special Report, but that’s Krauthammer, I could listen to him all day long!

  • Laurence Glavin

    Nice to see that Rachel got her 1-million-plus total viewers again. Her 25-54 number is almost up there with Mr. Broken Nose. Her big takedown of the “mainstream” Republican party’s financial and organizational (is that a word?) shortcomings was a delight to behold. Lawrence O’Donnell also got 1-million-plus total; Ed? not-so-much. Have some of his viewers decamped to Spitzer. Jes’ kidding. New development at Current though…they are now running promos for Spitzer in their other shows.

    Obama’s White House War on Women – paid 18% less than men,for same jobs.. http://freebeacon.com/hostile-workplace/

    “Obama is now co-opting Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan! Democrats have to cite Reagan to get things done. If they’re gonna win reelection, they have to somehow associate one of the most popular, respected, beloved presidents ever with their perverted, obscene, destructive policies.” -Rush Limbaugh

  • suikostinger

    ahhhh, lbsles quoting Rush Limbaugh again….

  • Matthew

    Obese radio man talk through my mouth hole so I don’t have to do the Hard Thinking or the Understanding

  • James

    Good numbers for lawrence and rachel ..chris and al were up too .poor ed’s numbers were down

  • lbsles

    “You need to continually ask yourself what does the IRS have to do with health care? Why is the Obama administration hiring 4,000 new agents for the implementation? What in the world does the IRS, a tax collection agency, have to do with curing diabetes? What does the IRS have to do with treating cancer? What does the IRS have to do with making sure that, if you’re an automobile accident, you get the best coverage in the ER?” -Rush Limbaugh

    George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer who says he was acting in self-defense when he fatally shot teenager Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida, has been charged with murder in the second degree, special prosecutor Angela Corey told reporters Wednesday.

    Ouch, even I don’t see how this could be 2nd degree murder. If they go with that I do not see how they can do it. They need to charge him with manslaughter….I think that would be VERY easily proven, considering the fact that Zimmerman was following the kid around the neighborhood.

  • Snap Tie

    Here is part of Eric (my people) Holder’s speech today where he praised Radical MSNBC’s Race Specialist Al Sharpton. This is the same Specialist who called for more civil disobedience (riots) in Florida.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t27ATBHMijI&feature=player_embedded

  • lbsles

    2nd degree murder is the best they could hope for based upon the evidence. At trial it could be plea bargained down or a lesser charge could be considered/found guilty by the jury/judge.

  • Joan

    Shame on Florida and God help us in this Country (or what’s left of our Country) if they charged Zimmerman just to appease the radicals! Is this justice?
    The next time one of us feel threatende in our own home or trying to walk from our car to our door and are fearful for our safety, dont look around for a neighborhood watch person or a concerned neighbor! Good luck you are on your own. Second degree murder!!!!! disgusting, impossible in the worse circumstance and anyone with a shread of intelligence and decency knows this! SHAME we are no longer experienceing LIBERTY in this onec great Country! You can draw your own conclusions on WHY!

  • Matthew

    “The next time one of us feel threatende in our own home or trying to walk from our car to our door and are fearful for our safety, dont look around for a neighborhood watch person or a concerned neighbor! ”


  • Matthew

    I Don’t want to live in an America where I, as a private citizen, am not allowed to make a rash judgment about a stranger, based on their appearance, and proceed to stalk them while I carry a loaded fire arm :cry: :cry: :cry:

  • Matthew

    You know – Typical neighborhood watch stuff
