    I have to laugh at Mika Bzzinski…. sitting there, all Glammed up…..
    like she’s a Movie Queen or something…..she used to be brunette then she
    gets the Fake Blonde hair…add to the mix, a high-toned attitude….I have
    to laugh .

  • Steve Perry

    @Raz & REM (Wastos)

    -For your information, I’m a U.S. Army retired officer with a wife who happens to be Republican and two children who are in college. So please, don’t spend anymore time sending your pity my way…lol.

  • Coffee Steve

    Oh My

    Obama Event Registry Asks For Guests’ Donations In Lieu Of Gifts

    Just read a comment on one of the mediamatters pages that says

    “I donate my ex-wife, she knows how to make money on the side and can help you”


    Time to let the weekend crew go at it, have a good weekend everyone, play nice now.

    Peace & Grace to all

  • Watching in Awe

    To the Post that asks if MSNBC starts to make changes that Al Sharpton will be the first to go. They (Comcast)are afraid because Al will go to the race card immediately. He will scream bloody murder. So he will be on forever. I use to be a black liberal who supported Mr. Sharpton. He is a bad egg that plays the race card every chance he gets.

    Anderson Cooper beat Schultz in the key demo and Nancy Grace wasnt far behind him! But Bill O got a huge bump! And Sharpie, as pitifull as he is is beating Matthews on a regular basis. I think the party is just about over for those two. They will be the first to go if MSNBC ever starts to make changes.

  • MWA

    You’re right about Steve Perry, maybe people should be kinder to him,or he could end up in the same padded cell with Rubberroom Nancy and Jeffy.He could play his number’s game while Jeffy pretends to watch the sunrise over Palms Springs(at 2:30 am PST) and Rubberroom Nancy telling everyone how name calling isn’t her cup of tea unless it’s someone who share’s her views,then name calling is ok.

  • Steve Perry

    @Gabriel…”NBA title clincher and Fox viewers don’t budge. Jesus. Fox has them trained well.”

    -That’s because the vast majority of people who watch Fox News are like 90 years old and don’t care about sports. The rest of them get paid just to leave their channel on Fox…even when they’re away from home or sleeping.

  • REM

    Perry if you are Army, you should be ashamed to call youself a liberal democrat.Veterans hate Odumbo, at least the smart ones do

  • REM

    Perry it looks like your wife has the brains in the family. I hope your kids take after her for their sake and the countries sake.

  • AppleStinx

    At 8pm “The O’Reilly Factor” had more viewers than “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (ABC – 3.200 million), “Take Me Out” (FOX – 3.220 million) and “Justin Bieber: All Around the World Pt 2″ (NBC – 3.100 million).

  • Steve Perry


    You are sadly mistaken…not all veterans hate President Obama. There are plenty of us who haven’t been brainwashed. Although I was brainwashed for about the first 15 years of my career, but then I stopped drinking the kool-aid and woke up.

  • Steve Perry


    I slap my wife around every single day when it comes to debating the issues. I always tell my favorite line…
    “A woman voting Republican is like a mother hen voting for a fox to watch over her and her chicks.”

  • Steve Perry

    @Applestinx…”At 8pm “The O’Reilly Factor” had more viewers than “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” (ABC – 3.200 million), “Take Me Out” (FOX – 3.220 million) and “Justin Bieber: All Around the World Pt 2? (NBC – 3.100 million).”

    -Don’t try and compare Broadcast and Cable shows on this thread because Chriscee and others might go medievil on you azz…lol

  • betty

    Ohhhhhh….everybody who watches FOX NEWS is “like” 90 or 100 years old and
    oh dear, why is FOX NEWS so damned popular, beating every other News, I just
    can’t take it any more, I feel the Vapors coming on, I need some Smelling Salts….Ohhhhhhhhhhhh.

  • Steve Perry


    Very few Americans even watch cable news. The vast majority of Americans get their news from the Internet and Broadcast News.

  • Sam

    Watching the news these days is a horrible experience. My TV is bombarded with deceiving republican ads, I mean if they spend that much money they’ll certainly win the elections.

    Sad for democracy, the irony though is that republicans supposed to be “fiscally conservative”

    As consumers get some welcome relief from painful gasoline prices heading into the Fourth of July holiday, President Barack Obama’s approval ratings on his handling of the economy have also taken a dip for the same reason: worsening economic conditions.

    Just 33 percent of Americans now believe the president is doing a “good” or “excellent” job when it comes to the economy, according to a Rasmussen poll.

    That’s down from 41 percent at the beginning of May, which could be yet another sign that the president’s re-election chances are tied more to the economy than to any other political issue.

    “This election is more than just a referendum on President Obama. It is a referendum on his handling of the economy,” declares Political analyst and Democratic pollster Doug Schoen in an exclusive interview with Newsmax on Friday.
