Well, I have a new hobby, watching C-Span, for fun .
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 07:22 AM by In_Transit
I didn't spend much time watching C-Span untill lately, but it has gotten to be amusing to watch the repubs calling in whining about Hillary, bitching about Kennedy, blaming Clinton for bushco screwups.Trying to justify stupidity. Sometimes they get really get pissed at the facts.It's as if they were on a sinking ship. :shrug:
Check it out,it's downright fun sometimes. :rofl:

1. I was watching C-Span for a few days when I was pet sitting
I thought it was incredibly boring. I just had to change the channel to something else - like cartoons.

2. In the mornings, the call ins are what is so amusing. It's like
they are starting to panic and it shows. I love it.
Are you still doin' ok?

5. I can see how it would be easy to get hooked on it, but they
were some damn arrogant, now they are snapping and growling and finger pointing for their situation. You heard this: "I have political capitol and I'm gonna spend it" Ya gotta admit, it's sorta funny. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

6. Late at Night
when the House is in session, the Dem 30somethings talk and they are so refreshing. It gives me hope!

And when the blowhards talk too much, there is always the remote.

10. Now that Rummy IS fun. He carefully selects his words, places
them in bureaucratic bull shit and basically says nothing. How he's still there is a puzzel to me.

12. CSPAN airs a lot of good stuff
I've been addicted for quite some time now. In addition to Wash. Journal, they also air high and low-profile political events and functions, election debates from all over the country, Book TV (CSPAN 2), in-depth interviews with political shakers of all persuasions, political protests and rallies...you name it. If it's at all political, they air it without commentary or spin. What a refreshing concept! ;-)

CSPAN ROCKS! :headbang:
