Biden and Graham on MTP, once again. Can't Russert get any NEW talent out of the Senate? Why do we have to hear from these two week after week?
|12:00 PM EST
3:00 (est.) LIVE
In Depth with P.J. O\'Rourke
P.J. O'Rourke , Cato Institute
The beginning and end of this live program may be earlier or later than the scheduled times.
Thanks for the posting and effort AB. Congratulations to last weeks winners too. And, last but not least, Hello to everyone from a snowed in and cold Denver.
In Russert's world, these are the "talented" like him. Because they are opposed to everything Bush.
Though McCain is absent, his proxies - Graham & Lott are there. But from now on, they SHOULD be VERY CAREFUL because 2008 primary just started & we will be watching them "carefully".
The talent pool must not be very deep if they have to flop out this old cod...
Quick, change the channel before the controls become too oily to work!
With a couple of exceptions, what a lineup of commies. I think I'll keep my breakfast in my stomach and read a book instead.
I think Fox is the only one I can bear to watch.
Some bits about Robert Byrd, Ted Kennedy, Clinton (Bill) & ofcourse, Harry Reid. Did you know that when Reid spoke, there was no quorum (# of members present)? During Reid's speech, only 20 senators remained on the floor. When Reid started talking about the framers of the Constitution, Clinton left the room-- and most of the remaining spectators followed him. When he yielded the floor after 30 minutes, only three senators remained, and the half-dozen spectators lingering in the public gallery included Reid's wife.
OMG, this week's shows are unwatchable. I think I will take down my tree today instead.
Morning AB, All,
Warm as summer here in the swamps of Delaware.
Joe Biden...ah. Seems this fellow's been out and about and pontificating.
This coming week ladies and gems, Joseph Hairplugs Biden, his official name, will be in his glory. It will be as if he ascended into heaven, met 72 virgins and had on hand a fistful of Viagara.
For Biden, now head of some important committee, I forget, will commence the "hearings".
There will be, go with me here, TELEVISION CAMERAS all around.
Ahhh. Better than the 72 virgins per Biden's brain.
He will be in his glory and, of course, he will tell us all about it on MTP.
Nothing much new here except my beloved Belgian shepherd got attacked by a loose dog as I took her on her daily walk. This is the SECOND dog to attack her, all while she's on her leash and tethered with the harness and walkinig innocently upon a public street.
First one was a Pomeranian, I'm not making this up. Thing weighs about ten pounds. Last week it was a cocker spaniel. Both dogs bolted out of their yard and ran right up to my BIG Belgian Malinois...big, folks. She's a BIG dog! Big teeth!
She's not vicious, not at all. But go with me here, when a dog, ANY dog attacks her, well, hey, THEY DO NOT WIN.
The people with the cocker think I should pay for their dog's vet bill. Jo-Ann did a number on the cocker, folks. I got my hands tore up trying to break them up and precious granddaughter watched the whole thing, screaming in abject fear as Mom-Mom rolled around in a ditch trying to break up the two dogs.
Of course I am not paying their Vet bill and for God's sake, they OUGHT TO PAY MINE. Jo-Ann DID get a bite, just a small one as the cocker had but one shot at the big dog and after that, the cocker was Jo-Ann's to destroy. But the cocker's bite was significant. The cocker attacked her underbelly as these things go with a small dog going after a big one. The cocker got some kind of vein and it bled profusely. My Vet had to put her up on the table rightaway and stitch her with no anesthetic.
THOSE idiots called the SPCA (I did not because hey, two dogs got in a fight, their dog was loose, I did nothing wrong). The SPCA guy got here, he talked to us, he told me he could talk to me all day because hey, I can talk now. Jo-Ann was a big puppy when he asked to see her.
I asked him "Just what is Jo-Ann supposed to do when a dog attacks her? She should just sit down and take it?"
Hey folks, we do live in a la-la liberal hell anymore and such as common sense self-defense seems to have gone out the window.
So yesterday the cocker's owners stop me as I was on the road and ask if we can settle this Vet bill. Translation, will you give us money for OUR Vet bill? I'm perfectly serious here, folks, this is the kind of stupid America we live in now. No one has a single shred of common sense anymore.
I was nice about it and these folks, their dogs are always running loose.
Oh and did I tell you about the butcher knife?
Let me stop and gather my wits. Between Biden and the Cocker...well what's the difference, really?
Can't get the link to work but it really is there.
Just saw a blurb about Biden/Lindsey appearing and the blurb said the two would be discussing more troops or not more troops in Iraq.
Of course Biden (forget the plagiarizing, I'm still running for President) will be on the Sheehan side, and Graham will be on the McCain side.
Graham's position is subject to change if John McCain's position changed overnight.
Versus, Miss Marple? I doubt it. They'll both be more in agreement with each other than not. Both will agree that Bush is bad, Iraq is a failure, and they know more of anything better than you or me.
Don't take it down, just move the adorned tree it into the spare bedroom and drape a sheet over it. Ahem, if it's artificial of course.
My late Mom did that for years and after Thanksgiving dinner we would just move the tree back into the den and "instant Christmas tree".
My Mom was a very practical person. :)
You forgot Freep more!
The esteemed (in their own minds) senators have not listened to each other in committee hearings for years, so now they didn't even have the courtesy to remain in the Chamber for the opening session! I wonder how (badly) they will act during the SOTU speech.
I don't want to hear ONE word from sanctimonious Byrd about "separation of church and state" after that holy-roller shouting on the Senate floor.
I do indeed have an artificial tree but my house is more like a cottage and don't have much spare room. Funny my mom use to tell me that when she was a child they kept their tree up until March. (The room the tree was in did not have heat.)
I agree on the vet bills, screw those idiots.
A neighbor's larger dog came into our yard years ago and attacked our very young mini-Doxie who was leashed. The neighbor immediately came over after our return from the vet and paid all expenses while offering profuse apologies.
Mine as well, Rod. This DEBKAfile Exclusive Report beats all our media reports & without any bias. Bush Poised to Stake His All on Iraq Victory.
I think maybe Brit is hosting FNS this morning...at least he was giving the preview on Fox and Friends.
It is extremely easy to wean from the Sunday morning habit with this thread. After about 200 posts it is obvious that we did not miss a thing. One or two remarks will be referenced by our few remaining viewers - for whose commitment I am very grateful - just enough to summarize entire hours of programming.
We are now like those congressmen who get all their info from staff, not from first-hand study and exposure.
You link doesn't have the .html on the end of it is all, Rod.
Sigh! That was years ago and we have moved since then.
We go back to visit every few years and the neighborhood is just as nice, though our gracious neighbors have also moved.
Their pre-SOTU speech already may be ready & they will send it to the Prez thro' the media.
Shoot. Except for 2 and 3 I did those resolutions years ago. Why do you think I started this thread? To end the AGONY of watching!!!!!
Russert is picking up Chrissy Matthews thread that the dems must at least try to stop the sending of more troops to Iraq. Biden admits there isn't a whole lot he can do about it.
Daughter's in Florida on busines. Lucky gal!
Thanks for being so hospitable with the weather!
Nope. Adding the .html to the end didn't help! :-(
Tim won't be winning any awards if he has honest discussions of the issues. It's all libs all the time that garners the kudos!
I was thinking about doing this but so long as they leave me alone I am perfectly willing to come up with a sane and sensible settlement....ie...they pay their Vet bill and I'll pay mine. God Bless America.
The Butcher Knife? Oh, you want to know about the Butcher Knife? Glad you asked.
As I was rolling around in the ditch with the 3-yr-old granddaughter screaming in the street I was trying to PRY the dogs apart. By this time Jo-Ann had the cocker in a death grip like dogs do, her teeth THROUGH the cocker's mouth, all the way through. It was horrible.
I couldn't get them apart so I did the only thing I could do, I screamed for help.
The cocker's owners heard and next thing I know, as I'm laying over both dogs and beating MY dog on the snout to get her to let go of the cocker, out of the corner of my eye I see the cocker's owner running at me with a HUGE butcher knife, held high in the air and ready to plunge.
He was going to STAB MY DOG!
I started screaming and told him if he stabbed my dog he'd have to go through me to get to her.
He did drop the knife at that point and he helped me pry the dogs loose. Hey, the guy was really nice about it. He was shook up, he apologized to my granddaughter that she had to see all this. I did take Jo-Ann home then returned to see how the cocker was. I think the cocker lost an eyeball. The owner then asked me if I could help with the Vet bill at which point I told him politely I could not.
Not to mention my hands are torn up.
This is the mentality of this country any more, to add a moral to it all. There is NO right or wrong. There are only lies and spin and lust for money.
I've been despondent over the whole thing. Folks, my dog is a BIG dog, she's got BIG teeth. She's NEVER attacked another dog yet TWO dogs now have attacked her. It's bad PR folks and Jo-Ann has a reputation she does not deserve.
I deliberately walk her between 8 and 9 am in the morning so I will be out when most folks have gone to work and their dogs are locked up. Jo-Ann does "posture" for other dogs as we walk...she snarls and does something that evidently other dogs see as some sort of challenge. I think she's warning dogs not to come near us as hey, the dog does protect me and that day she was watching over me and the granddaughter, who Jo-Ann would gladly die to protect.
Now...TADA....CANINE PEPPER SPRAY. I carry it with me and keep my finger on the button. If some dog decides to run out and attack Jo-Ann they will be squirted handily. Hey, I'll even squirt Jo-Ann if I have to. It doesn't hurt them.
I'm not backing down on this one and when you think about it, I could sue the bejeesus out of them. If they don't knock it off, I shall do just that.
The lineup is so pathetic I think I'll put my tree back up!
