  • Ratboy

    Me thinks someone may be missing one of there socks :shock: :lol:

  • Sicilian Papa



    Read what I posted, Ratboy could rewrite it if you like and add a few things but I think I summed it up pretty well.

  • JusThaFacs

    The goofy wackiness of Chris Matthews & Co. has caught up with BSdnc. The question is how much longer is it going to take Comcast to fire all of their idiot talking heads and get new ones who actually have brains and don’t act like little 3rd graders when dealing with the guests.

  • ninja

    Must be one of those disposable rat – traps. Use one then throw away.

  • ninja


  • ninja

    Democrats want tougher gun bans to save lives while republicans are trying to make it harder to have a abort**n. Guess which one Rachel madcow has a problem with.

  • Ralph Hahn

    #3 RACHEL IS ON FIRE! lol

  • Mr. Gone

    Showbiz Tonight is on fire!!!!
    …well comparatively

  • Dreamer

    I quess you have a following! Haaha

  • Dreamer

    Rachel Maddow needs to move on over to Fox.

  • Dreamer

    Sorry Ratboy, did not mean to offend (foot in mouth).

  • AppleStinx

    Dreamer wrote: “…Rachel Maddow needs to move on over to Fox.”

    Not likely to happen, but not impossible either. She’s on good terms with Roger Ailes and could easily get more viewers on FNC than she gets now, even if hers is to be a weekend primetime program.

  • 1966

    LOL@ ninja
    instead of a rat you might get a hillbilly.
    hi reality chick. hillbilly you keep away from her. or else.

  • AppleStinx


    It has come to my attention that Hillbilly’s “supermodels” are dead ringers for Sadie Hawkins. :lol:

  • Rat-trap

    I wonder why the little Rat hasn’t answered the questions… Trying googling the answers. You spell google: G – O – O – G – L – E, think you can handle that…

  • Jeff

    So Rat, you are saying since Bush policies destroyed our economy over eight years, and now since President Obama hasn’t cleaned it up in just 4, that makes my point invalid.

    GOD your dumb!

  • d.d.

    Good morning , Jeff

    You’re not wearing just one sock are you ? Rat-trap sounds just like your style of posting . Hope you aren’t falling back into old habits.


    Obama budget: Why now?


    It’s about time. If I was mayor and I delivered my budget that late, I’m not sure I’d be mayor,” said Democratic Sen. Mark Begich of Alaska, a former mayor of Anchorage.

    “It does give new meaning to leading from behind,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.).

    More than anything, Obama has opened himself wide to criticism from both sides of the aisle because he’s so late in releasing a budget.

    “I’m disappointed the president didn’t present his budget in a timely manner. He could have given us a blueprint and a path forward, but he had his reasons for doing it,” said North Carolina Rep. G.K. Butterfield, who serves Democratic leadership as a deputy floor vote counter.

    “They should be preceding everyone else,” said Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), a former member of his chamber’s Budget Committee.“Unfortunately, the timing isn’t good this time.”

    Asked what the Obama administration was thinking in rolling out its budget so late, Senate Budget Committee member Chris Coons replied, “Ask the White House.”


    Making a list, checking it twice, then out of here. Bye.

  • 1nancy2

    Comcast has done more to stick it to Dem’s, Lib’s. Soon I will just tune in to Rachael and ‘call it a day’. C.Cast and the empty suits at MSNBC have a death wish, for sure. It looks like they want to ‘shut her on down’. Getting rid of Ed was a huge mistake. Huge. Here they keep the likes of Andrea M. Joe Blow, SE Cupp MHP Chris H. “Go figga”. As I said, Fox caters to Conservs…MSNBC=no one, nada, zip. zero, nope. BBL

    @Good morning , Jeff

    Good morning 2u2 d.d.
    No I use more effective and accurate descriptions. Like Rat or Ratturd….

    Mr. So&So will check IP’s and block any players. I used to link the R-Tards to each other, due to similar punctuation mistakes and spelling errors and sentence structure. I hardly even read their posts and anymore because their opinions are boring or just not very important due to the ignorance.

    But if he and his bully posse want to think its me…..cool! Just hope they don’t loose any sleep over it!!!

  • clinging to my god

    I think rat-trap is really usa8888….
