    Jiggs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame broadcaster speaking in Orillia, Ontario,
    says,

    “I am truly perplexed that so many of my friends are against another mosque being built in Toronto. I think it should be the goal of every Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their religious beliefs.
    Thus the mosque should be allowed, in an effort to promote tolerance.

    That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to the mosque, thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque.
    We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, “The Turban Cowboy “,and the other a topless bar called “You Mecca Me Hot.”

    Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork restaurant, called “Iraq o’ Ribs.”

    Across the street there could be a lingerie store called “Victoria Keeps Nothing Secret “, with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods.

    Next door to the lingerie shop there would be room for an adult sex toy shop, “Koranal Knowledge “,its name in flashing neon lights, and on the other side a liquor store called “Morehammered.”

    All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance they demand of us, so their mosque issue would not be a problem for others.”

    Fox only pulls 1/10 of total viewers watching the SOTU address…..

  • Doug Z

    UPDATE, 3:10 PM: The first State of the Union of President Barack Obama’s second term last night was watched by 33.5 million viewers. That’s down 11.3%

  • usa8888

    Fox viewership is lowest in 12 years and has disproportionate numbers of elderly… Roger Ailes has got be worried..he can’t blame Obama for this or maybe he can…..maybe he will hire Ted Nugent and Palin’s daughter….

    Why would right wingers on Fox what to what BHO

  • usa8888

    doug–why did La Pierre change his support of gun background checks 180 degrees in 10 years…????

  • usa8888

    Yes, Doug, that shows how relatively few right wingers are in the audience mix….most people watch other networks….

  • RedBarSoup

    Fox had it’s WORST rating…in what was it? 10 years in January. While MSNBC gained viewers….

  • Ratboy

    Do you think that the loons here realize that non-political people still think CNN is the place to go for special news events including thing like the SOTU so therefore every intelligent person (and by the way FOX knows it too and exppects it) knows that CNN ratings will be huge. Couple the SOTU (which many might have watched on network TV)with the Dorner event and bingo! CNN wins.
    NO BIG SUPRISE FOLKS!!!

  • usa8888

    Rat–The big surprise for Roger Ailes is that Fox ratings are at 13 year lows and MSNBC and CNN are gaining quickly and often beating FNC in the most sought after demos. Heads will roll at FOX…..

  • RedBarSoup

    Ratboy

    You are one of the crazy loons that post in here, do you not realize this…?

  • Jeff

    Non-Political people still are smart enough to know that Fox is not the place to go for important informative news regarding events. I am pleased CNN always blows Fox away when large numbers of people turn to news. Yes! No big surprise ratturd! But it seems to really annoy you…. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    How would I know. I real only care about the economy. But I will play with you on other topics sometimes.

  • GOPfan

    CNN is the only legitimate and trusted cable news agency left. Period. It shows every time there is a big story, people turn to CNN. FOX keeps there number because all of the far right and old people refuse to get their news from anywhere else that isn’t meat for the party. What has happened to my party?? What has happened; it really is so painful to watch this party lose its values in the name of politics. Reagan would be a Democrat in this age on half the issues.

  • Mark2

    Compared to the 2012 Presidential State of the Union:

    CNN increased +36% in the key demo and +36% in total viewers.

    MSNBC increased +26% in the demo and +8% in total viewers

    FNC decreased -16% in the demo and -3% in total viewers.

    Ouch!!! That’s gonna leave a mark on Ratboy’s face!
