4. So last weekend I go into this bookstore
Edited on Sun Aug-14-05 10:38 AM by XanaDUer
I love books and I love to read.

It's a secondhand bookstore, too.

I am new to the area, so what do I know?

Anyway, after I start looking around, I notice that there seems to be just certain kinds of books. Books like how Franken is screwing up America. Books by Hannity and O'Reilly. LOTS of books in that vein.

Nothing on the other side. Hmmmm.

I ask the young man behind the counter how much an old and damaged Ann Rule book is. EIGHT BUCKS.

So now I know what I'm dealing with. Only Republicans and conservatives think their secondhand junk is worth a small fortune. I say this as someone who has spent a lot of time at garage sales in liberal and conservative neighborhoods.

Won't be going back to that store.

5. Al's telling us about the people Destroying America.
Once again, the conservatives have it wrong, just as they were wrong about the flowers and candy they said would be given to our invading army.

because they don't get everything they want. They're like spoiled brats.

6. Goldberg and Hume
2 former network reporters who never got the lead anchor job, now spending their days spewing bile and bitterness at all those evil libruls that never let tham become stars.


Waaaaaaaaaah. Rinse. Repeat.

8. He's an idiot. He also thinks Jimmy Carter is screwing up America.
Jon Stewart did an interview with him and pretty much let him habit. There was a clip of it floating around DU for a while; the segment ended with footage of Carter building a house for Habitat for Humanity. Yep. Really screwing this country good, isn't he?

9. Why would you post this kind of garbage here?
It is a know fact that Goldberg is a right wing hack.

Listen to Al Franken and make up your own mind.

15. I get the impression
that Goldberg is just a hack who saw the burgeoning market for right wing crap and hitched a ride on the gravy train, as opposed to being a true believer in much of anything.

16. I saw his interview on Jon Stewart's show
and he totally blasted this guy. It's so hilarious how this guy gets all these people who have no power at all. I mean duh! :eyes: And then this guy says that he's "fair and balanced" because he named two conservatives like Judge Moore. :eyes:

17. "these days" - this crank regurgitates the very same BS all propagandist
of the past has spewed & spittle to their masses...

his target audience though is mainly the elite to persuade them to BUY INTO todays BS emanating from the worlds mightiest halls of power, capitalizing on the FACT that, 'they' are so preoccupied with, whatever, they never are able to see through the BS and since they aren't personally affect, yet, are, through their fear & ignorance, driven to his MSG, still.

true other ignoramuses, driving by the same motives, though different circumstances, also BUY IT, the only thing their 'useful' for is drumming up flash 'mass' counter-protest of those who, according to this whacko, goldberg, HATE AMERICA.

perception IS everything, eh...

20. "I Bitch-Slap Bernie Goldberg" is one of Franken's chapters
in his "Lies..." book. It's even funnier now after seeing Goldberg on TDS

:applause:
