This goes to show just how bad things really are over at PMSNBC. If “Reverend” Al is the best they can do...

I thought he already was a host there. Guess I know very little about the latest news on Sharpton.

What a pleasure it is to have no cable service.

The whole world is just chuck full of potentially great broadcasters to choose from, yet MSNBC keeps selecting these losers ... go figure. Looks like they want to lose the ratings battle.

Don’t get me wrong, I hope they continue to employ these idiots, just wondering why? ;-)

I think he could really draw an audience from the college kiddies if he called his show, "The Race Pimp Hour".

Sharpton is a racist murderer, with a lot of blood on his evil hands.

Remember this the next time General Electric’s MSNBC calls anyone who opposes Obama a “racist.”

He preaches at the church of racial identity marxist politics.

He must have promised NBC executives a cut from the shake-downs he will perform on his show. This will happen on air while the 10 people who watch his show nod their heads and yell “power to the people”.

“Reverend’s” Sharpton and Jackson are living proof that you don’t need a law degree to shake down corporations for frivilous crap.

They’re trying to find out if there is any creature resembling a human who is so bad that there are no idiots stupid enough to watch. When some people kept watching Olberdoofus they should have realized the answer was no. Between Olberdoofus and Al Dullton I am not sure which is worse and I don’t plan to do any research on the question.

MSNBC is so smart — they are moving to corner the market on racists. They already have Pat Buchanan to represent the racists on the right, and now they can have Al Sharpton represent the racists on the left. KUDOS, MSNBC. I expect your market share of racist television watchers to climb even higher. The only thing left to do is to have Jesse Jackson guest-host when Al Sharpton is out. You can’t leave us without a racist viewing option at 6 P.M. You just can’t!

You don't need to attend divinity school to get your ministering credentials if you are an oppressed minority with a big mouth. They simply waive that requirement. Pretty cool, huh?

Just in time for the “eeeeeelekshun”. With the Black Caucus ramping up the rhetoric against the Tea Party, etc.....this seems to be a plan. Didn’t Zero just meet with the head of Comcast (NBCPMSNBC)? Yep! Expect 24/7 “Get Whitey”. This is all orchestrated.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Apparently the test pattern wanted more money than Reverend Al and was concerned about his reputation if he appeared on MSNBC.

Well, that’s just another sign I will never watch that network. That race-baiting, bottom-feeding, scum sucking, oily haired, false religion pushing, poverty pimp doesn’t deserve any time on national TV to push his agenda.

But that’s just my opinion and missed the last gun show in this area......

Sharpton...lifelong race baiter, hate-monger, anti Semitic, and solely responsible for the murder of a Jewish shop owner.

ODonnell and Matthews...over the top uneducated ignorant liberal nutjobs.

Maddow....poor excuse for a journalist, who reported with glee a hit piece on Palin then realized it was from a satirical site.

Schultz...just plain crazy, confirmed liar, hate monger, who purposely editted a clip to make like Perry is a racist.

Dear Comcast and MSNBC...this is your primetime lineup. I ask, on behalf of your suffering investors and shareholders....ARE YOU REALLY TRYING TO FAIL???

They have really screwed the pooch now. Having taken on the “reverend” they don’t dare ever fire him, and he knows that they’re too cowardly.

I watched a few times, he’s pretty awful. There’s a word of difference between being a “colorful” regular guest on a talk show and actually running the show.

Just another example of Al's crusade to further the advance of opportunities for blacks himself. Congratulations Al, we all know there are no black journalists "Reverends" out there more deserving than you.
