    Put that sleazy cars salesman Hannity

    I bought my van from hannity, is that why it broke down :lol:

    Wazzzzzzzzzzzz up Sam?

  • Ralph Hahn


    @ Put Mathews only @ 7pm and he’ll take down Fox News too,

    >>> Put Matthews out to pasture and then the may have a chance to gain some numbers <<<

    Shep Smith has some very impressive numbers in the 25-54 demo. Matthews is going to say something REALLY stupid, even for Matthews, and he'll be history just like his a-hole buddy Olbermann.

  • Sam

    @ Coffee,

    Terrific man, how about yourself ?

    I work in films productions and casting, I can’t imagine anyone who could play a better used cars salesman that Hannity except this guy =D

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Kevin In NC: >>> Wow! Rachel Maddow beat Hannity in the demo. I love Dr. Maddow. She is the smartest political tv host by far. <<<

    To paraphrase the very funny comedian, Lewis Black, "If you're impressed with Maddow, you probably were impressed by your high school principal."

    "DR. MADDOW!" LOL!!! You can rack up 20 years of higher education, but no one should be called Doctor unless they heal people. Some of the PHD's are probably having a hard time getting full-time hours at McDonald's like the high school grads.

  • Coffee Steve


    LOL…Good vid :-)

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Suiko: >>> Idiotic comments? Like yours how you think Comcast is scrambling your Fox News…AHAHAHAHAHA <<<

    Re: Comcast. Do you really believe that this is so far-fetched that it couldn't and wouldn't be done?

    And, yes. I call 'em as I see 'em. Idiotic comments about posters nearing orga$m because MSNBC has a good day for once. Particularly, the one, whom I believed I addressed, who claims that "Faux News is slipping…"

    You're a bright poster and a worthy adversary. Why defend these ding-dongs?

  • Test Pattern

    How does CNN keep limping? What a disaster. Just pull the plug. Run I Love Lucy reruns and the 3 Stooges. It costs less and will get more viewers. Ted Turner would.

    Libya: Looters are in the compound American Staff member Dead, many more injured, set compound on fire


  • Ratboy

    Damn He really IS too busy to meet with Netanyahu! After all he has to meet with Dave!!

    White House declines Netanyahu request to meet with Obama…
    ‘Schedule Full’…
    Announces ‘Letterman’ Appearance…

  • Mark

    Damn He really IS too busy to meet with Netanyahu! After all he has to meet with Dave!!

    White House declines Netanyahu request to meet with Obama…

    The fact that Netanyahu is trying to use the presidential election to gain support for a war in Iran is just disgusting, I am glad the President didn’t cave in.

  • Coffee Steve


    The Jewish leauge in Louisville (very heavy democrat) is BLASTING the WH on local Radio, and I mean Blasting them. The leader of the group said he doesn’t think President Obama can count on their support. Trust me, around Louisville, this is a major issue now.

  • Letmethink

    Noticed obama had time to do an interview with a guy named ‘pimp with a limp”—no joking.

  • Coffee Steve


    I had a joke with the words limp and pimp, but I thought better of it :lol:

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    “Matthews is going to say something REALLY stupid……”

    Like claiming Comcast is part of some great conspiracy theory against Fox.

    BTW, in my hometown Fox and Fox HD are part of my basic cable plan and MSNBC is nowhere to be found. Should I shout from the rooftops it is a conspiracy. What an “idiotic comment”.

  • Mark

    We already have neocons who are warmongers(and got us into one useless war in Iraq) we don’t need outside people dictating our foreign policy. The balls Netanyahu has trying to get the American taxpayer to fight his battles is just baffling(it’s even more baffling when the so called fiscally conservatives are acting like he is right)

  • d.d.

    @Coffee Steve
    Libya: Looters are in the compound American Staff member Dead, many more injured, set compound on fire


    This violence spreading across the Middle East is truly alarming.

    Please protect us all from this ignorance.

    From an official with the Chicago Teacher’s Union .

    “This is our Arab Spring… This is not just confined to Chicago.”

  • TheBoss1

    So, where is betty with her inane name-calling of MSNBC primetime hosts?


    I knew the day would come when MSNBC would surpass FOX News. And, I knew I would see this board meltdown when it happened, as this board is dominated by Righties. I know it must absolutely KILL you fine folks that liberal MSNBC beat Fox News in the key demos at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00. That’s right … LIBERAL MSNBC beat CONSERVATIVE FOX News. Who whoulda thunk it?

    Chew on that thought for a while.

  • Coffee Steve

    Fox HD are part of my basic cable plan

    Basic? the HD is on Basic? What town? I’m moving :-)

    There are alot of reports waiting for confirmation before being published about more than just a simple flag shredding, it’s like hmmm…someone is directing the press to hold back

  • Coffee Steve

    Chew on that thought for a while.

    I did, but it had no salt so I spit it out :mrgreen:

    Wazzzzzzzz up Boss dude?

    Talk about good return on investment


    Sheldon Adelson Stands To Get $2 Billion Tax Cut If Mitt Romney Is Elected: Report

    Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson’s backing of GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney may not just make political sense for the billionaire — it may also be in his best interest financially.

    Adelson has vowed to spend as much as $100 million to help sway the 2012 election. According to a new report by Seth Hanlon, the director of fiscal reform at the Center for American Progress Action Fund, Adelson could turn that investment into a $2 billion tax cut if Romney is elected.
