Today,a Grammy sure doesn't mean the same as it did once upon a time.

But then,the same can be said about the Nobel Peace Prize (Jimmah Carter?????).

I thought there was some kind of rule that you have to say "rising star of the Democratic party" when you mention him.

If I'm not mistaken, I think that both Clintoons won a grammy also. All that a leftist has to do is have their bowel movement recorded, and the sycophants at the judging committee will give them a grammy. That's why awards like those are so worthless.

Hillary did for "It Takes a Village" (spoken word recording, or somesuch). I don't think Bill did.

"Best spoken album or something such "

I figured it was a rap album...since the Democratic Party and rap gangsta's are on the same page as far a values and, along with Hollywood, send mutual admiration tokens back and forth.

Tookie died when he was given a whammy. He did not win a Peace Prize either.

Many rappers did use his upcoming death to sell records, like Snoop Dog, whose album came out the day after his execution. :)

Not yet, but I think it's a pretty safe bet that his handler, George Soros, has that in the plans for him, since apparently he expects to ride this horse to the winners circle like a Saudi prince with a new thoroughbred.

On Cavuto today someone said you have to be nominated by someone who has sat in the Swedish parliament. That explains a lot.

You raise a good point. Obama is a first generation, interracial man. He's not a black in the sense that applies to most African-Americans.

Didn't Bill win one for a biography about Truman, I think?

I guess if your name is Clinton all you have to do is read a book. Chelsea should go get a book about the life of Castro or something. She would be a shoe-in in Hollywood.

Good for him. He's probably the only winner tonight who's not on drugs.

Hillary! won her Grammy for best spoken word album in 1997. It took a village of liberal idiots to nominate her book on tape for it.

Bill Clinton has won two Grammys, most recently for the spoken word version of My Life Lies last year.

The full list of winners in that category is here. Al Franken won it in 2004. Notice a pattern?

Hooray for Hollyweird!

Been thinking about her heiney's village.

What kind of village was Sam Donaldson's farm where a young teen murdered his father, step mother and step sister.

Lots of talk about the abusive home life for the teen but not a single person living on Sam's village noticed a thing or took the time to ever talk to the boy?

Let's face it. All these awards are politically motivated. Watch how many "ButtBack Mountain" receives.

Watch how few people actually watch the Oscars this year.

They're already worried about the lack of interest, which means the sponsors won't be paying big bucks for commercials.
