17. The NYT Editor's point was well taken
Why would bankers cease to cooperate if they were either subpoenaed or perfectly legal? Hmmm.

Oh, Curveball!

24. Because they weren't subpoena'ed?
:think:

Because the program wasn't legal?

:think:

Excuse me while I adjust my :tinfoilhat: but I think the real purpose of that banking program is to spy on Americans donating to MoveOn, the Democratic Party & other progressive issues.

They've been following the fascist plan quite well. Now it's the full court press to control the press.

Not that it hasn't been already but their attacking the media, if they succeed is the last stronghold against their fascist plans (not that the media has been very strong in standing up to them).

29. I love watching the face of George Tenet, and for that matter Negroponte
sitting behind Powell when he's lying our case for war before the UN. They both know its complete bullshit, Tenet doesn't even know where to look.

I hadn't heard that Rush was stopped at the airport carrying a 'no-no' perscription. Please let it be true, talk about disgraceful, his spewing of those hateful sentences about Dems enjoying the death of the two captured soldiers this week earns him a few months in the clink, even if he hasn't fallen off the wagon.

Oh, that is just TOO rich.

Even if they get him on nothing else, the whole world will now know that he had his paws on Viagra. It's like getting a free loofah from Bill O'Reilly, and a falafel on the side!

38. Well, crap... I was on the wrong thread.
Here's what I wrote:

I'm glad my son is in the bathroom with the water running.

The string of explicatives that just passed my lips regarding these FUCKS who shit, daily, upon the Constitution, including the First Fucking Amendment, in this case, who have me so pissed off, I could spit nails, would make a sailor blush.

:grr:


(Sorry... :hi: all.)


AND...

I wrote this yesterday and didn't know how accurate I was...

particularly the part where I say I don't know if my style of reporting would be welcome or if I would be comfortable reporting under this type of regime: http://sensationcocktail.blogspot.com /

:grr: I'm still so angry I could... I could... :grr:

These people, this government, is the epitome of FACISM.


OKAY... now I'm caught up! LOL!

45. I'm so glad they did that last week
I know some were upset with the Dems for doing it (Ed Schultz) but I'm :rofl: over the fact that last week, the same plan was "cut & run" when put forward by the Dems & now seems okay because General Casey says so. Care for some tea with your hypcrisy?

And the fact that Richard pointed out the Republicans were all working together against the Dems' plans & then got the rug pulled out from under by Casey really makes me :rofl:

41. Not about Iraq- it was about domestic politics.
The "cut and run" was used to give clarity to repiglican argument. (good interview with Wolffe)

Does it have to do with conditions on the ground, or the elections? (good question Keith)

Good for Warren Buffet. Its nice to see wealthy individuals that want to actually help someone else and not just live in greedy splendor.

98. Yeah, kudos to Mr. Buffett.
If you're gonna make it, might as well give it away to where it can do some good.

70. New MSNBC general manager plans to cancel some talk shows
The new general manager for MSNBC plans to add more taped reports during prime time and cancel some of it's talk shows, according to a story set for Monday's New York Times.

Keith Olbermann's show "Countdown," which has become very popular with many liberal bloggers and Chris Matthews' "Hardball" won't be affected, since they are considered "long-sought breakthroughs" by the cable network's management, and the coming moves are partly aimed at "capitaliz on their success."

"very popular with many liberal bloggers"? uh, if he didn't have the ratings, they wouldn't care what was popular with "liberal bloggers"...

99. Yeah, tell me about it.
Maybe that's just called "playing to your auudience in the story."

I just hope MSNBC doesn't try to fill its nights after Keith with canned crime crapola.

88. Oh that would be a cool ending.
I sense Draco is struggling with the evil upbringing he's had, with Daddy and Mumsy Deatheater.

78. Slackers at Fox News Channel, youre on notice!
Slackers at Fox News Channel, youre on notice! Your boss is not pleased. Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes is on the warpath following his networks recent ratings slump, and he wont hesitate to clean house to turn things around. So far during the second quarter, the No. 1 cable news channels primetime schedule has dropped 22% in its core 25-54 demo and 8% in total viewers. The first quarter was even worse. Chief rival CNN has also dipped in recent weeks, but less dramatically, off 18% in the demo and 2% in total viewers.

Insiders say that, even though Fox News remains No. 1, Ailes is fuming over the complacency he senses among staffers. Production values are slipping, and bookers arent competitive enough, relying too heavily on the same pool of faces and settling for authors or actors after theyve already been on CNN or gasp MSNBC. A full-page "Now Hiring" ad that ran recently in a trade magazine asked, "Can you make the cut?" Says one Fox staffer, that question was not addressed to outside applicants: "That was aimed inside."

http://www.broadcastingcable.com/article/CA6346894.html

Commenting through a spokesman last week, Ailes left no doubt: "Anyone who displays launch-type intensity will continue to have a job at Fox News. Those who dont will not. And that includes talent."

101. I LOVED Keith's comment on this...
"Which just goes to show that, even in Hell, Satan will periodically demand more productivity from you.

107. think of all the evil that would ooze out
if that demented cherub ever cracked open. I'm glad I won't be called to account for his doings on Judgement Day. I'd rather not even hear the list. :scared:

74. My baby's pics went for more money than your baby's pics, nah nah nah nah
nah nah. Perhaps Brangelina giving the money to a worthy charity is more appealing than the knowledge that Tomkitten would be giving their money to the Church of Scientology.

102. I actually enjoyed Keith and Musto tonight.
We'd had just enough of a break from the constant TomKat snark to make it seem fresh again. And their comments on the Kidman-Urban wedding were cracking me up (joking about how all the stereotypical Australians came).

It was also refreshing to hear a man (that would be primarily Keith) criticize a woman for being TOO thin! Just for that, he gets extra floaties from me tonight! :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya: :loveya:

Of course, I turned off the TV as fast as I could afterward to avoid having it poisoned even in the slightest by She Who Must Not Be Named.

talk about the need to bomb the New York Times building again. She's so fucking predictable.
