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

    He should have said, “Live Lonng And Prosper” But it would have been considered a conservative slogan :-)

  • Ralph Hahn

    Before I was old enough to drive, I bought a paperback book with photos of politicans and funny cartoon balloon captions from people, who, like myself, enjoy making funny balloon captions.

    There, addressing a large group of African-Americans, was former New York City Mayor John Lindsay. This was the late 1960s. Standing on a streetside stage, pointing skyward as his listeners looked up as well, was Hizzoner and his balloon caption, which read: “THERE! CAN’T YOU SEE THE PIE?”

  • RealityChick

    Can anyone really understand what Sharpton says? You have to tape it and play it again or have the caption on to get his point, which is usually pointless. He has been having this “guest” on about a book this guy wrote about a secret GOP meeting to get rid of Bumbles as soon as they lost the election. He’s trying to make it a conspiracy. I call it being proactive. Since when is a pep-rally dinner by the opposing party illegal and a conspiracy? What a joke! I suppose if the shoe were on the other foot the dems would have filed a lawsuit for wrongful actions with civil rights implications and demand an investigation that is isn’t a race related hate crime. Get real.

  • Coffee Steve

    What’s even more sad, Is I can’t even understand what I say to myself :-)

  • nimeinenumer

    Its hard to believe anybody would admit they watch MSNBC lol.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Rats & USNRetiredx2

    Just spoke to a reportteer hoping a flight to DC, he said security has increased at Louisville International and they are checking everything…following that alert ABC News has reported on I can imagine.

    Yeah, I mean, Fox News hasn’t done this huh? Oh wait, they have, Hannity does something like that on almost every one of his shows. OMG Obama hugged his teacher when he went to college!!!!?!?? Or even Fox and Friends infamous……”If you turn Obamas logo upside down it looks like the Muslim Brotherhoods logo!!!!!!!!!!!!”

    SEALS SLAM OBAMA FOR MAKING IT POLITICAL

    SEALs slam Obama for using them as ‘ammunition’ in bid to take credit for bin Laden killing during election campaign

    Seals Slam Obama

  • Coffee Steve
  • Mark

    @Coffee Steve

    So they basically go out and get a couple guys who seem to agree with the Republicans about what Obama does and they speak for everybody?

    What I find funny is how the Republicans panties are all in a bunch about Obama using the Bin Laden killing in an ad as somehow a bad thing, completely ignoring how often they used 9-11 to promote fear(ie your aren’t safe unless you vote us) in previous years, it’s comical.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Mark
    they used 9-11 to promote fear(ie your aren’t safe unless you vote us) in previous years, it’s comical.

    Hi Mark, I do agree its all comical, and all of them would use it if they were in office, however, I think one complaint is legit, the seals and all the military should be mentioned more in any ad.

    When it happened I did congradulate him on a job well done, and yes, it was a gusty call. Politics has made it to the point, it’s all silly anymore.

    But the story does make some good points but goes overboard on other ones.

  • Coffee Steve

    @USN

    *U.S. counterterrorism officials are concerned because of increased intelligence chatter but U.S. counterterrorism officials see no specific or credible threat

    (Persoanlly I think this chatter will increase every anniversary of his killing, hopefully it doesn’t mean anything)

  • LARRY IN PHOENIX

    The new LIBERAL Absurdity Of the Month…..NO SUCH THING AS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN ? Hey, like there is no such thing as blueberry pie brother Al ?
    I know this comment has nothing to do with the topics here, but when I first heard this I thought it was so unbelievably stupid that I just wanted to scream out loud !

  • Coffee Steve

    @LARRY IN PHOENIX
    NO SUCH THING AS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN

    New term for a Bank Robber “A Finacial Advisor” :-)

    Night Everyone, hey Hillbilly? I stuck a whoppie cushion on AppleStix’s seat, don’t tell him Hehehehe

    Peace

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Rick: >>> Does anybody remember what kind of ratings Elliot Spitzer was getting before he got the ax? <<<

    I think Spitzer was getting ratings in the 9's.

    Oh. Sorry.

    Spitzer was CLIENT #9.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Coffee Steve: >>> SEALs slam Obama for using them as ‘ammunition’ in bid to take credit for bin Laden killing during election campaign <<<

    I KNEW IT! Before November 6th, the ONLY legitimate GOOD thing that Obama will be able to take credit for, is giving the order to kill Bin Laden.

    Everything else has been a sham.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @LARRY IN PHOENIX: >>> The new LIBERAL Absurdity Of the Month…..NO SUCH THING AS AN ILLEGAL ALIEN ? <<<

    I saw this young woman on a Fox News show this weekend who wrote a book to push for the banning of the 'I' word. At first I thought, Don Imus? No, he's The 'I' Man.

    If we did that, how would we describe the difference between prescription drugs and ILLEGAL drugs? Dig.
