Our Blatherskite-in-Chief has finally gotten off Letterman's couch to do a serious interview. Univision Grills Obama

His "biggest mistake" was in not passing immigration reform.....as he is interviewed by a Latino? OMG, talk about pandering. What about that three letter word...JOBS? Our blatherskite is a flunky at best.

In Disney's "DuckTales", mild-mannered accountant Fenton Crackshell would utter the phrase, "Blathering Blatherskite!" and transform into the superhero, Gizmoduck!

In the Media are many a blatherskite
Chris Matthews qualifies, and Rather might.
Though they may speak quite fine
They tow The Party line,
And just spit talking points, if one gathers right.

did you see joe trippi subbed for beckel on the five one day this week? he’s a bit more palatable. still left wing, but less abrasively so.

I try to never watch “The Five” because they infuriate me. I do hear it sometimes, if I’m out in my car, because it comes over XMSirius radio. The Five and Red Eye and Sheperd Smith are 3 shows that I wish Fox would drop.

I agree, however, that Trippi is sometimes palatable. He’s certainly not in the class of Beckel, Williams, Colmes, and some of the others. There are some women too that are impossible. I just can’t remember their names — that’s how little they mean to me.

Trippi is better than most of the leftists because he is smart and has a sense of humor. That’s a rare combo for them.

I can’t stand Shemp and Red Eye is on too late, but i enjoy the Five and i really like Gutfield. I didn’t expect to like the Five but i really do.

Yes, he’s not quite as good as Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell, but he’s more balanced than the rest.

From what I’ve seen of The Five, Eric Bolling is the star. Posing Kimberly Guilfoyle on the outer edge of the table with her legs exposed up to her butt, just makes her look silly (and she’s a smart lady). She should insist on a seat in the center. Pose Beckel out in front so we can all see his pot belly and tummy roll!

Notice that they never put Dana out in that front position. I don’t know whether she doesn’t have provocative legs, or whether she insists on a seat behind the table. In any case, I think it demeans the women to use them like they do.

FWIW, I don’t like the way they pose Megan Kelly on that stool with her bare legs dominating the picture, either. Notice that they never do that with the male talking heads.

The show grew on me when I thought Beckel would irritate me too much to watch it. Kim’s voice and appearance can be distracting but she is smart and makes good points. Dana is far too modest to sit in the leg chairs. Gutfeld is an acquired taste but he makes good conservative arguments with a lot of humor thrown in. He is my son’s favorite character. Juan is lost, as though he is just so happy to have a job, and he rarely makes any sense at all. He is a blatant sexist as well.

Fox is renowned for using attractive sexy women for ratings. it’s just a fact. the legs don’t bother me, but there has been some ridiculous cleavage on various shows. Harris Faulkner has worn stuff very low cut. and there’s a blogger by the name of Michelle Fields who was on something, maybe Oreilly, and she had some tight fitting zipper front dress that was unzipped quite a ways. xshub went nuts about that. LOL!

I hated Kimberly Guilfoyle when she first came on to Fox years ago, but i really really like her now. Remember she was married to Gavin Newsome, leftwing former mayor of SanFran? was she always conservative, even while married to him? she is unfailingly right on issues, it seems to me. Dana is short, so she probably wouldn’t make as good a pic with her little stubby legs swinging out front there, ROR!! i love Gutfield. he is edgy and smart and extremely clever and articulate and he is the absolute best at putting Beckel in his place. Greg and Beckel appear to get along much better than Eric and Beckel, who seethe at each other quite frequently. i still swear that Greg is in love with Dana. Yesterday he made a joking reference to it, they were talking about snooping on your spouse etc. and he said his wife doesn’t need to snoop. she just watches him on TV, and said, oh, with dana again i see....

But Beck is back now. He’s Mr. 5 O’Clock again.

Welcome to today’s episode of “Think Like a Democrat.”

Since the new state law for voting ID says that IDs issued by colleges and long term nursing homes can be accepted as valid, that means that the county community college and nursing home should issue IDs to anyone who asks.

Gutfeld obviously likes her very much and she is a good sport about it. I love when he calls Kimberly KG. Eric seems increasingly fed up with Bubba Beckel, and rightly so.
