  • Duh – LOL

    I love how you keep citing your Rush quotes, as if citing it makes it credible–like it’s some scholarly source. Old people are so funny. Go put some more of your money into gold coins.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @chriscee & papa: I had the duh8888 pegged as The Duh right from scratch, too.

  • lbles

    “While Obama is parading the parents of these Newtown kids everywhere and urging them to speak to everybody, the victims from Benghazi are still being told to be quiet, to shut up, to not ask anymore questions.” -Rush

  • Duh – USA

    What is everyone’s obsession with USA8888888? And why is every detractor him/her? I think it’s sad. Go clean your guns, the Government is coming to get them.

  • Chriscee

    Duh you are making an a$$ of yourself.

    You would think that by now msnBS would re-think their liberal line up and make drastic changes. They are losing advertisers that is why they run so many of their own commercials – loss of advertisers.

    Chris Matthews was pathetic last night.
    I guess that is what booze does to his brain.

  • Jeff

    Ralphie Hahn -b!itch, who’s talking to you?? This is that special time of the day you get Internet privileges. You are a fool and never learn.

    Was that your topic? You right wingers are all over the place from cable ratings, Rush quotes, name calling, ganging up, then back into your pig pen orgies. Who cares to keep up with that…….not me.

  • Duh – USA

    Chriscee, why make changes? It obviously helped the Democrats in the last election. Didn’t Obama win?

    Also, why would Nielsen start looking into different ways to measure online viewing? Because the smarter, younger generation aren’t sitting in front of the TV getting their news. Meanwhile, the dinosaurs of the GOP are knitting socks for their cats and watching Fox News. Hope you all enjoy medicare, you socialists.

  • Chriscee

    Its good day if Rush’s quotes upset the liberal groupies!!!

  • betty

    Duh hates Seniors especially his own parents because they named him so bad-
    ly and who can blame him…Duh conveniently avoids the 18-49 group that FOX
    NEWS consistently Dominates…look away,look away, don’t see those numbers.

  • Mark2

    CNN is on Fire!!!

  • Chriscee

    Duh = USA8888

    We can spot him/it a mile away. All liberals hate seniors and babies..unless they can be used as pawns. When they done with them..they toss them aside. Just ask Obama.

  • Mark2

    CNN won every single 25-54 demo between 5 PM thru midnight.


  • Chriscee

    And Fox won the over- all viewship…OUCH!! That must really suck for msnBS. They – as usual – finish LAST!!

  • Jacob

    Alot of people probably use the internet to find out events likke what happened. Unlike all the old people who watch FOX who don’t know how to figure out how to work a computer

  • RJ

    Why are all FOX viewers old and unable to figure out computers?

    I’m in my 20’s and I watch FOX News. Gesh.

  • Bobbyv

    Why are you guys so nasty to old people?

  • Chriscee

    The liberal base claims they care about seniors. Liberal posters here prove they don’t care about seniors and neither does Obama.

  • Mr. Nielson Ratings

    My Friend works at Le Bistro in Washington D.C.

    Everytime Chris Matthews comes in, the whole staff laughs at him.

    They call him Mr. Third Place.

    To bust his balls, they call him Mr. Anderson Cooper….

  • Mark2

    Also, NBC News beat all of these Cable shows.

    NBC News drew 8.9 million viewers. Chalk up another victory for Brian Williams and NBC.

    Ouch!!! That’s gonna leave a mark!

  • Jeff

    I love seniors. Just not mean nasty vile ones like Ralphie Chriscee and people like them that are filled with hate bigotry and intolerance. I’m just glad that you will see the world change for the better in your lifetime to their dismay.
