    MSNBC sweeps the weekend.

    FNC fans avoid looking at the ratings. FNC did really bad in the 25-54 demo.

    I remembered hillbilly.


    I’m not a music buff like you, but i watched. I wanna see Letterman do a one on one interview with the guy who sat closest to him. The guy gave short answers & had Letterman frustrated. :lol:

    Hey everybody, took a little break from news and politics. I fooled around and fell in love. I’m too old to have this happen to me.

    Does anyone here enjoy a good train wreck. I will keep you posted. This story is going to end badly.


    It always does when you pay money for it. :lol:

    Just kidding don’t get mad. :shock:

    Doesn’t MSNBC do that Lock-Up all weekend or at least most of the weekend?

    Thats what I’m told. I don’t watch so i can’t say for sure. The “norm” is FNC wins the day & MSNBC wins the night. FNC lost both this time.

  • RedBarSoup


    and yet people turn to Bill O for their news…. /sigh. Just as bad as the idiots that turn to MSNBC for their news.

  • Letmethink

    Well, my post got caught in the filter–not sure why but will try again
    SP–congrats on the relationship and hope it goes well for you.
    dd great to see you posting again. I just don’t read the posts of the ones that are unkind and that I find of no value–works for me. Enjoy the humor and info from most of the posters on this site.

    That would be John Paul Jones, who has a sense of humour but is the least colorful or talkative of the three IMO. From the moment Robert Plant chose to sit in the farthest chair, I could tell the group wasn’t about to open up to Letterman. Jimmy Page, of course, sat next to Plant. That left John Paul Jones to be the one next to Letterman. It was a bit awkward, but not as bad as when Larry King interviewed Mick Jagger.

    I guess it too early to expect seeing some Sicilian Bambini in here… :grin:

    I still lurk here now & then. Thanks for the Nashville video. It’s a nice city, that rebuilt on its own after the flood. I haven’t stayed at Opryland since it was rebuilt. It was always beautiful this time of year.

    TZCA ,
    I remember reading on several AFP news sites that Ambassador Stevens was sodomized. There is also an Arab news video on this subject.
    Every time I think of coming back , I read vitriol from mattfitz or someone like him, so I’ve gone on to greener pastures. If I don’t return , I wish a great 2013 to all the posters here.


    d.d. It’s good to have you around. Glad you poke your head in every now and again. I understand you limiting your time here. In regards to the vitriol of some like mattfitz, I just shake my head and chuckle at their lunacy.

    A Hamas website and Fixed News? Oh pray tell, inform us in real world terms what this ‘Hamas website’ and ‘Fixed News’ is.

    You are the nut ball. You are so enshrined in your own hate for right-wingers that you have no clarity of thought, your posts come across as incoherent ramblings, and you are completely blind to how foolish you look and how ineffective you are at convincing anyone of anything. There are plenty of left-wing blog sites that would enjoy your vitriol and there are plenty of right-wing sites for BevAG to run off to, and in the end, you would have accomplished nothing by running her off.

    But please, continue your nonsense because it really does give me a good laugh every once in awhile, but only at your expense.
