Dr. Ben Marble is tearing Rockey V a new one on Hardball!
Edited on Fri Aug-25-06 05:01 PM by Ilsa
He's making him admit to his partisanship, and Dr. MArble said * is the worst president this country has ever had.

It is at the very end of the show. They ran out of time, or I think Marble would have kept going.

9. Rocky VI Is Going To Be A Tear Jerker For Me. I'm Counting The Days.
As a side note, Rocky V didn't really exist. It was all a figment of our imaginations. A very poor figment lol.

But I can't wait for Rocky VI. Best movie franchise ever...

14. A reader of the Sport Guy perhaps?
"As a side note, Rocky V didn't really exist. It was all a figment of our imaginations"

This is one Bill Simmons fav lines.

"But I can't wait for Rocky VI."

Not so sure. I was recently reviewing the Stallone "Renaissance" of the mid 90's (your Cliffhangers, Demolition Man, Assassins, The Specialist and the hilarious self parody Judge Dredd) and I was left wanting because he has been in nothing even "bad movie" good of late.

What was the last movie Stallone that was even enjoyable? For me it would have to be Copland.

18. Schneider, as with all his movies, stole the show.
That he didn't receieve an Oscar for Deuce Bigalow 2 European Gigalo is one of this century's great oversights.

8. Dr Ben posted on DU for a short time after that. He got tombstoned
relatively quick.

He is a hot head but I like him. :)

I LOVE the fact that his comments to Cheney will always be part of the public record of the Katrina disaster.

10. He's a wacko, but he's a wacko on our side.
:) I was on the coast when he made his comment. It made a lot of people smile.

16. Yeah, I remember that, and I hated to see him go, and even DUers
get into it, but I think he went too far. Maybe he had PTSD or something. He was pretty hot today, too.

29. Yeah, that is the guy! His house was flooded, and he had been
at the hospital with his wife giving birth and he was working, and then he tries to go home and the SS makes him go 20 fricking miles out of his way (with no gas stations working in case he needed a fill-up) just to get home because the SS is freaking paranoid that someone wants to hurt that Asswipe. Telling him off emboldened alot of people who had been silent for far too long.

34. I always liked Dr. Marble's rough edges
We had a few email conversations about his being tombstoned from DU for acting like an asshole. But that character trait was exactly what made him so endearing when he turned on Cheney.

32. He was tombstoned? I was wondering what happened to him
Dr. Marble was featured in Spike Lee's documentary, "When The Levees Broke". That made me think about his postings here at DU.

Wow, a new American hero was born when he made that comment to Cheney - TWICE.

11. Whatwhatwhat?!
What's the matter with MSNBC? Don't they know they're supposed to just air the footage of the photo op and never think about or speak about the incident again? Why are they doing a follow-up, and for heaven's sake, why in the world is Mr. Vaccarella (an Italian name derived from the word for "tool" or so I'm told) going on the air? He's a prop and supposed to go back to the prop room when he's done serving his purpose.

Man, somebody screwed up big time. The only possible outcome is another round of Medals of Freedom.

27. Vacarella is a textbook neoconservative!
He himself acknowledges being a 'southern democrat' who became a Reagan Republican - the very epitome of a neoconservative reichbot, imho. He's a despicable dissembler - a damned fool who can't learn from getting scammed over and over and over again by people who pander to his hatreds and bigotries.

30. I'm surprised he didn't blurt out...
"Just a couple of southern guys talking about pussy and shit like that." Really. That would be par for the course for Numbnuts.

31. Well, to be fair...
... I think Rocky is mildly retarded.

Making him look stupid would be like me making my Dad look like an overweight white guy.
