    It’s one thing to constantly compare apples to oranges and consider Stewart something that even he does not consider himself as I have shown you numerous times, but it is amazing that you continue to criticize others when they are right. Would you like an autographed admission from Stewart himself? Would that finally convince you or is it a lost cause and I should just let you have your fun?

    Cathy–how you could have gotten an MBA is astonishing to me. If can’t find all the national polls on Americans favoring gun control, how could you have possibly gotten an MBA? Must be a pud school with no standards.

  • usa8888

    Stan T.–hasn’t even passed arithmetic so how can you expect this guy to understand ratings numbers. I told Stan to go back and read Mark’s explanation of Fox’s ratings demise, but the guy apparently hasn’t got enough smarts to read….

  • usa8888

    Ninja–either you haven’t been in the army or you can’t navigate You Tube. You represent the right wing fring well, bud…

  • Doug Z


    I did not know you had a MBA. You had better help Jeff and usa8888

    Oh, I forgot they know it all already

  • Doug Z

    Mr usa8888

    You have not called me stupid yet.

  • usa8888

    The right wing GOP is the party of DINOSAURS, with very little education. They continue to do what the public doesn’t want and they are too stupid to realize it, even after they lose elections BIG. Keep it up and we will take the HOuse soon…..

  • usa8888

    Doug–trust me, Doug, If Cathy has an MBA, she bought it…

  • Doug Z

    Mr usa here is the Dems at work with the under age girls.

    War on woman any one

    . I didn’t know he was a United States Senator; that was something that Peter [Williams] told me. That Senator also likes the youngest and newest girls. In the beginning he seemed so serious, because he never spoke to anyone, but he is just like the others and has just about the same tastes as the doctor, very refined. I think they were taking us more often to get us checked because of him. The first time I saw him was more than three years ago, at the beginning of March because it was close to my birthday. There was another important man also there.

    Listen Rookie, the reason why O’Reilly is not on the list is because the Top 100 Cable shows are based on the only thing that matters…the 18-49 demo.

    But dummy, please notice that I said if you look at the list, the people at the bottom had 300,000 key demo viewers and O’Reilly had 433,000…so obviously it’s not ALL cable shows…obviously they did not include news shows….you can’t read?

  • Doug Z


    I learned long time ago never underestimate anyone. Not even Jeff. But take little to hart.

  • usa8888

    Doug–you are like the right wiing GOP–they don’t get it. They don’t even know they started and continue to fuel their WAR ON WOMEN. Legitimate rape…say what???…one of your right wing bozos who has not been repudiated by the brain dead GOP….I could go on and on but the the voters have already spoken……… call Insanitorum and ask him for his warped views…..

  • Doug Z

    Stan T

    do not act like the Libs. You are smarter than that.

    I know that for a fact.

  • usa8888

    Stan–you miss the point like all your right wing friends…Fox’s ratings are on the DECLINE. Can you grasp this???? MSNBC’s are on the rise…….

    You can’t read a demisre that never took place….are you that ignorant? O’Reilly used to get 2 million viewers, and now he gets 2.5-3 million…a moron should be able to see that 2.5-3 million is MORE than 2 million…okay, maybe it’s the million that is throwing you off…drop the million…3 is still bigger than 2..his viewership is way up from what it was years ago..I give up trying to get you lefties to understand simple logic…it’s obvious you just don’t have the brain power to understand…

  • Doug Z


    I am a extreme fiscal conservative . Way right of the GOP on the budget. Way left on other issues. You should know that by now.

  • usa8888

    Where’s rat, come back to us?????

  • ninja

    It’s to bad there’s no school for common since. Usa888 could become career student.

  • usa8888

    Good, Doug…..so you are not a part of the GOP’s WAR ON WOMEN…

  • Doug Z

    Stan T

    Please do not act like the Libs. they show intransigence by call poeple ignorant.

    You are above that.
