I was listening to WDOV AM via the Internet this morning. The lead story on one of the top-of-the-hour news segments was that the big 0 is going to get his daughters a brand new puppy! And then, the news went into a long list of former first pets.
My heart simply melted.
That last statement was ultimate sarcasm if you didn't guess.
The media fawning has already started.
Just curl up with a case of Molson, a bag of Doritos and watch DVD's of the Rockford Files, South Park and Dark Shadows.
Unfortunately, they won’t be able to get MicHelle a new mug.
You know, I'm going to start thanking
the woman who cleans the restroom in
the building I work in. I'm going to start
thinking of her as a human being
Why does the breed Shitsu come to mind?
Well, Obama needs to take some innocence into the White House, even if all it is is a little puppy. Maybe he will gain a little humility from the pup.
Let’s hope this sweet, blameless puppy is loved and cared for more than poor Buddy, after his or her usefulness as a political prop is at an end. Buddy, a Chocolate Labrador Retriever, was run over by a car in Chappaqua.
I heard that Michael Vick has some nice pit bulls for sale.
Unfortunately the puppy will be dismember and cut into equal peices that will be distributed to several little girls who also don’t have a puppy. It’s just part of the distributing the wealth policy.
New name for our president elect I haven’t before - “the big O” ! Funny!
I would say the media fawning began at Obama's Democratic Convention address in 2004. Possibly even before then. Possibly even at his manger in Kenya where he was born.
I like your sign-off. Back at ya -- Peace out!
Conservative talk show hosts need to find networks other than the same media squeeze who constantly pimp for liberal politicians. My wrist is already getting tired of twisting the volume dial on my radio every time the network news comes on.
Why does the breed Shitsu come to mind?
I have absolutely no idea...heh,heh,heh.
Well at least he’s honoring his campaign promise to his daughter that win or lose he would buy them a dog.
I hope the puppy spreads it “wealth” all over the white house.
Then I guess Snoopy Dogg won’t be moving into the White House.
To placate his base, Obama will get a pit bull and name it Karl. It will, of course, volunteer to be neutered,
There is a network of stations out there with a number of conservative hosts. And they generally have SRN news (not AP, ABC, CBS, CNN, or Fox for top of the hour talking points).
.LOL. I hope that is the only "wealth" that gets spread too.
All the big national programs(Rush) need to get on board with these guys.
IMO they should put their money where their mouths are.
I thought that Muzzies despised dogs as unlean?!
And let us pray that is the last campaign promise he is able to fulfill.
I figure it will be a pit bull, the mascot of thugs everywhere. Keepin’ it real, fo-shizzle.
It’d be nice. Rush’s contract is tied up with Clear Channel.
And some of the stations are receptive to suggestions to change the local news carriers. Others are not. Staff and management at conservative talk radio stations is not exclusively conservative.
Here is townhall.com’s network of stations. Don’t know how much funding there is between them but a lot of them have the same hosts and website layouts
(upper right hand corner Find Stations)
Talk Radio: Bill Bennett Mike Gallagher Dennis Prager Michael Medved Hugh Hewitt
One thing I would like to see, is more LOCAL conservative talk radio. Here in Houston 700AM has a couple of hours in the morning and afternoon with some local talk which can focus on local issues and local elections and local perspectives. 740AM has some people who give local talk but I can’t say they are that conservative, 1070AM (the townhall station) has some local commentary and even had local election coverage last night. No full program usually but at least at the hourly breaks there is some local commentary.
1430AM is a historically black owned station in Houston and it has a religious spirit. Not all of the hosts agree politically and even in the case of Obama, there was not full support. Some of the religiously grounded hosts could not support Obama over the issues of abortion and homosexuality. Others could. Based on how some of the hosts held up skin color and redistribution of wealth over the issues of a right to life or redefining what is sin, I cannot say that they are conservative. The Bible may have wanted us to be charitable to those without but it is against the 10 Commandments to be envious of what your neighbor has and it is against the 10 Commandment to take what your neighbor has.
Obama promise list: Keep track of the ones he breaks.
Thats why it has to be up to the more popular ones to leave once their contracts are up and risk a less lucrative contract on principle.
But I don't think the conservative movement is there yet.
Come on, PETA, do your thing. Animals should not be kept as pets!
Buddy was the second dog used as a prop by the Clinton’s. They had a cocker spaniel when in the Gov. Mansion in Arkansas. Care to guess his fate? Also run over by a car.
I do Cocker Rescue, the Clinton’s would never pass our adoption screening.
I feel as if we are going to get a warm story out of this family every day. It’s like the people who stage a house on the house flip shows. The experts come in and make an ugly or weird place look adorable.
You’re spot on.
I was a teen in the early 1960s when the US media was breathlessly in love with the Kennedys. I didn’t really understand why my Irish Catholic Dad hated the Kennedys. (of course I do now)
Obamas: Camelot II
The Kennedy years were only named Camelot in JFK’s passing. It was Jackie’s idea for his lasting legacy.
The Obamas = Carter II.
There are a whole lot of Billy Carters in this extended family.
I wish we could find out about his extended family. O avoids them like the plague.
So you’re one of those puppy adoption nazis, huh? It’s no wonder puppy mills thrive and homeless dogs continue to be put to sleep. It’s easier to adopt a kid than it is to adopt a shelter dog.
I don’t know, a cute puppy running amok in the White House might make this all a little less painful... I hope it chews up Michelle’s awful wardrobe.
The first day Obama is in office, everything will be perfect. Make sure you tell everyone. They should expect it.
Dear Leader will get a half-Bulldog / half-Shitzu.
No Christmas presents or Halloween candy for his girls...
but at least they get a PUPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
