At least Al tries to be a serious candidate even if he is unsuccesful. The others don't even bother trying.

goo question-the answer is he is a Democrat- they wouldn't even allow Alan Keyes to debate in 1996 in Atlanta- home of Martin Luther King-hauled him off in a police car when he tried to attend with the other Republicans

A. Because FNC is enjoying the opportunity to expose the Democrats as much as possible.

Your screen name cracks me up. I'm picturing a gin drinking mastrodon. Shaken, not stirred. That was easy, huh?

As for Al, they've got time to fill and viewers to entertain.

Hmmm, then I wonder why your sign-date says the 17th? Strange. Oh well.

We have our own special time zone here in AZ. I still show it being the 16th, though. Software glitch, I guess.

Simple...Sharpton is a huge embarrassment to the Democratic Party. Fox likes to rub their noses in it.

FNC is no longer a reputable news source. Bill O'Reilly's arrogance ruined his show. Sensationalism ruined Hannity and Colmes (Laci Peterson, Michael Jackson, etc) and Greta ruined her show by her mere existance.

Thanks for the ping, mhking.

Because like all programming it is driven by ratings which determine ad revenues. Al pulls ratings.

Greta's "NEWS" show is garbage as far as I'm concerned.

FR's account database might be set to GMT whereas the forum's date/time is obviously Pacific Standard Time.

Either that or chock it up to Linux, the sucky OS.

Have you ever noticed how black Democrats are always brushed aside and "awwww, how cute, the black man ( Sharpton ) or black woman ( Braun ) thinks they are capable of being president"? OR "Congrats black man, you are now a member of a Demonicrat administration, get ready for the "tragic accident"

...and then with Republicans you have Keyes who commands respect and respected and qualified people like Powell and Rice who will be admired forever in the history books for fighting for our nation's survival....it is just sickening to watch good black people being sold on the idea that they should be parasites for the Demonicrat party.

No, no, no! Powell, Rice and Keyes are all Uncle Toms! How else can you explain all 3 of them being exceptionally intelligent, well mannered and well spoken as well as highly successful and well regarded in the non-leftist circles?

I agree with you about O'Reilly. I used to love his show. But he does not wear well. He spends more time trying to say that he's not a stooge of either party, it's hard to know what the guy really believes other than he is God's gift to journalism.

I'll tell you one thing, he obviously has alienated conservatives as well as other good guys in the talk industry -- e.g., Rush, Hannity, Ingram, etc. He has such an inferiority complex that he has to bash others to make himself look good. Gee, maybe he shoud run on the Democratic ticket!

Because of the impression that the title of your post Al Sharpton on Greta has left on the imaginative minds of the members of this forum, I think the least you should be required to do is start serving up double martinis to us all (we'll tell you when to stop) in an effort to have us drink away the horrific image your careless words have wrought.

Condi Rice will be president one day. This "white boy from the South" will cast his vote for her with pride and joy. Condi Rice is not about color.

Dennis Kucinich was on the Tonight Show a few nights ago and they pretended that he was a serious candidate for the Presidency. Is Greta more credible than Jay Leno?

He thinks he's O'Reilly's gift to God.

Probably just to show the true nature of the Democrat's version of equality.

You got that right. And this Southern girl will gladly campaign for her. She's going to kick A$$ against Hillary Billary Rodman Clintoon.

I might eat my words, but I'm betting if Hillary Billary Rodman Clintoon decides to be Kerry's running mate or is the Pres candidate for the Demons, (their convention is first) Bush will have Condi as VP. Well, that's my bet.

But that is only one incident that pales in comparison with the Democraptic party's history on race relations. After 40 years of war on poverty the ghetto is still the ghetto only the people have change. The victim attitude is still pervasive.

I lived in Arizona a couple of years ... Miami Arizona. It is a ghost town now. I came back to my hometown, Los Angeles where I am happy as a clam.
