    It would appear that it’s time for “MORNING JOE” to turn the lights out,
    close shop with his dismal numbers.

    On the other hand, perhaps he should just turn the lights out thus
    eliminating all that posturing, mugging and aloof attitude oozing from
    “MIKA”.

    In the meantime the AL SHARPTON race baiting show suggests the reverend Al
    may be suffering from a mental disorder possibly brought on from ironing
    his head.

  • Ralph Hahn

    I don’t know why I even look at Friday’s numbers. They’re not really indicitive of the norm. The later the hour, the lower the rating. The weekend numbers don’t mean anything either, unless you had a program-by-program breakout like they do Mon-Fri. A cable news/commentary show should be based on the average of its Mon-Thurs. ratings.

    “In the meantime the AL SHARPTON race baiting show suggests the reverend Al

    Maybe Sharpton’s problem is Blueberries and the stuff they spray it with.

    (Carried over from Thursday since it was the very last post.)

    @d.d.: >>> …said Rather, who is promoting a new book, “Rather Outspoken: My Life In the News.”… <<<

    Rather was scheduled to be Bill O'Reilly's guest to plug his book, but Dan, I guess, lacked the "courage" to face Bill O. Bernie Goldberg, NOT a friend of Rather's since he, then Dan, left CBS, will be on The Factor tonight, talkin' 'bout Dan. A lot of liberals would have watched Dan Rather on the Fox News Channel, but they probably wouldn't know what the frequency is. lol

    I'd like to get in on the joke. WILL SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME THIS THING BETWEEN SHARPTON AND BLUEBERRY PIES???

  • AppleStinx

    Getting 1,668K P2+ on a Friday may be a sign the ‘The Five’ will get over 2 million next week.

  • b

    With Obama as the most embarrassing and miserable failure of a President, so goes MSNBC….

    @ Ralph Hahn

    Brain dead, not as sharp as a pointed stick, did a comercial for messnbc in which he relates a story that when a young boy he came home from school, a hundred years ago, and found that his mother had made a blueberry pie.

    He ate some of it. When his mother got home she aked what happened, he responded “I do not know”.

    This the begining of his ability to lie to all, even his mother.

    I thought I was the only one that didn't get the blueberry comments.

    ————————————–

    A Bluffton Middle S.C. School teacher said Come here, Jew," & is accused of grabbing a student by his shirt collar & dragging him 10 to 12 feet. After forcing the student under the table, the teacher, Mulholland, said, "This is what the Naz*s do to Jews."

    According to the Bluffton Police Department. Patricia Mulholland, a social studies teacher at the school, was arrested today and charged with third-degree assault and battery, and public disorderly conduct.

    I wonder how her union rep will spin this ?

    @Ralph

    lbsles probably has no earthly idea what the commercial was really saying. Not saying that he’s correct in what he says, but I’m pretty sure lbsles can’t wrap her head around what Sharpton was trying to get at.

  • Rick

    I will go with “Ironing his head” as Reverand Al’s problem.

    I also do not get the “Blueberries and the stuff they spray on them”. Did he eat the blueberries that were part of a display that were sprayed with laquer to presserve them?

    People definitely are left with the impression that he killed a few brains cells doing something.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @lbsles: LOL! Thanks. And also a hardy “Thank you, too” going out to: d.d., suikostinger (for supplying the video)and to Rick, his ironing board and his orchestra.

    Of course, doing the reverse of what George Washington said to his father, this lie helped Sharpton during the Tawana Brawley days. Has Al EVER apologized for his part in that fiasco, that probably cost New Yorkers a million dollars or more on an investigation of the bogus-kind?

  • Rick

    Does anybody remember what kind of ratings Elliot Spitzer was getting before he got the ax?

    ABC News

    Officials Fear Terrorists With Body Bombs on US-Bound Planes…

    With the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death looming, American and European authorities told ABC News today that they fear al Qaeda may soon try to explode U.S.-bound aircraft with explosives hidden inside the bodies of terrorists.

    As a result, security at several airports in the U.K. and elsewhere in Europe and the Middle East has been substantially stepped up, with a focus on U.S. carriers.

    I didn’t get it. Why is Al Sharpton ironing his head? Is he a Klingon? :grin:
