1. I wish George Will would climb into the polar bear den at the Berlin Zoo.

2. You could take every one of those people and put on an Island ....
way off the Scottish coast w/ no communications with the outside world
and we all be better off. Self important shits ..... :puke:

1) They don't know shit about dogs.

2) Why would anybody care what a failed mean spirited man like Newt has to say>

4. ABC is far too quick to include Newt Gingrich and far too quick to exclude
Dennis Kucinich from their "news coverage."

I will never forget the loathsome Ted Koppel's public and inexcusable dismissal of Kucinich during the 04 primaries. He was equally rude and arrogatnt to Carol Moseley Braun.

5. actually...
it sounded to me like Newt was saying all the talk about whether it was a rescue pup or not was 'who cares'. Will seemed like the biggest asshat, though with this bunch, it's a hard contest. The whole bunch are morons. How anyone watches this drivel anymore is a mystery to me.

12. Yeah, there's plenty of Newt idiocy to pick from but this doesn't qualify.
He was asked for his opinion and it was essentially: it's nice that the kids have a dog but let's move on.

3. Am I bad?
I'm fantasizing about making several rounds of that table, delivering a resounding slap to each smug mug in turn - starting with shitweasel George Will and ending with fucknozzle Newt Gingrich!

13. You should start with Will and give him an extra one when you come around to him again.
And make him flinch at least once.

21. Or make Will do 1 day's worth of work
It would kill him .... he is the perfect example of what is wrong w/ the media.

9. it's GREAT that you can tell it bothers Newt - THAT is the important thing - He's Pissed! YEAH!!!

How much more can you ask - this 'calm collected GOP'er' is pissed off that they are literally losing on every front possible, and he's trying to get on the runaway GOP train to try and pull it over - well I hate to tell you this Newt, but the train is on the tracks - there is NO pulling it over!

BEAUTIFUL - thanks for posting.

10. I think the longer one stays inside the Beltway,
the less one stays rational and objective about the overall importance of one's utterances.

17. Now you went and did it.
I loathe that woman. She is the most insufferable of all the Beltway Gang, and has lived her entire privileged life inside a bubble.

I am revolted by her mere existence. She epitomizes the self-styled 'Ruling Class'.

11. Remember--you can't SPELL "Gringrich"
Edited on Sun Apr-12-09 12:36 PM by rocktivity
without "G-r-i-n-c-h."

But seriously, folks, I still don't understand why it wasn't possible to get an hypoallergenic dog from a pound or shelter. Are all mutts allergenic?

15. I agree with Newt for once
Over analysis of a puppy is stupid. Politicizing a puppy is stupid. Nobody really cares.

16. But Newt DIDN'T say, "THE MEDIA was WRONG to politicize the puppy
Edited on Sun Apr-12-09 01:09 PM by rocktivity
because it's stupid and nobody cares," did he? If he had, I'd agree with him myself--but then he probably wouldn't have been invited back...

23. Whaaaaa! We dog lovers do.
It sure beats all the "intelligent discourse" over the FLOTUS'S couture.

25. All of this focus on the dog
and on Michelle's wardrobe is getting really tired. They talked about the dog on every Sunday news show this morning but I have only seen one segment on Rachel Maddow's show on the recently leaked document by the Red Cross on their interviews with the 14 detainees that were tortured. This is the kind of thing I would rather the MSM be talking about not some dog.

20. The media cares, and so evidently do the people

Newt hates the "puppy issue" because it humanizes the Obamas, and helps people to understand that we all have much in common with this young family. It's pretty hard for the republicans to stir up hate against that.

24. Donating to the Humane Society is...
A Liberal thing now...Republicans have to be against everything that is truly nice in the world. Their Bronze Age religion has corrupted their minds to the point they hate everything not like them. SAD!

To think Old Man McCain & Sarah Palin could be in the White House...That seriously bothers me to think about.

However, it is good to keep in your mind considering all those here on DU who think Obama is a Republican.
