    “Little halfassed there Sam. Hannity is BACK”

    Maddow been kicking his a$$ for the entire week, and he barley beat her on Friday. Even with the O’Reilly bump he’s still doing horrible, the fraud was exposed during election and lost his credibility. Hannity doesn’t care about the GOP, he cares about how fat his pocket is.

    Perhaps he needs some “Geraldo’s Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults” kinda of scam to gain a little more viewers.

    If Hannity wasn’t scheduled after O’Reilly , he’ll probably do so bad even A Cooper will be kicking his a$$.

  • Sicilian Papa

    It is Turkey day tomorrow or as I like to call it “Tingles” day.

    Even the President can’t pardon that Turkey!!!

    Tingles wouldn’t want him to. He would be thrilled (up his drumstick) if the Prez. shot him, plucked him, stuffed him and ate him and his dog.

    Who is more scared today Ed or Tingles?

    Okay lefties one for you. Dick Morris should running for his life and he is one plump Turkey.

    Hi R. Boy,
    Happy Turkey Day to you d.d, Coffee, Gabrielle, Faith3, James, Boss,Matthew, Jeff, Let me Think, and others. I’m with you, I am delivering my 22 lb. turkey today and the less fortunate or ‘the poor’, something that the pres. has yet to utter, will enjoy it. The closest O. ever came was, “I have a mandate to help the middle class and people who are trying to get into the middle class.” So, he can’t say, ‘poor?’ You are going hog wild with your hobby, so enjoy. I bet the people who receive your smoked food, just love it. Oh, I’m trying not to pay too much attention to the Middle East, just b/cause it makes me sick to see civilians getting killed and maimed. Iran is lurking right around the corner and if and when they get involved….Dec. 21st is looking more realistic. My sister always says, ‘lights out’ on Dec. 21st. What can you do? BBL
