Please check out Phsstpok’s EXCELLENT Sunday Talk Show PRE-Thread. It’s a great way to hear analysis on why the DBM picks the guests, what they’ll probably discuss, and other pertinent facts. Also, check out his blog!

Would love to see the C&D issue discussed but somehow, I doubt it will.

Happy Mothers' Day to the Wonderful Moms!

Thanks, AB & Good Morning to EveryOne! Congrats to last week's topsters!

FNS' Chris Wallace made a Record of sorts last week (with democrat candidate Chris Dodd) - his rating that day was 1.132 million. (lower than Cable's O'Reilly, Hannity, Red Eye, Brit Hume, Greta, Special REport, Half-hour News hour, Line-Up.) Isn't it time for a replacement? For a change, why not have a REAL Conservative as host?

To add further insult, Fox has chosen Wallace & Wendel Goler with Brit Hume. Jim Angle & Julie Bandares will do bettter IMO.

Looks like something Laura Ingraham would call another "McHagel morning".

Happy Mothers' Day to all mom here today.

Russert will give McCain chance to “distance” himself from the Prez and move closer to the MSM. Do it senator and let ‘s get you over with.

Interesting to see McCain on MTP.

Last time he visited Tim, Tim was kinda rough on the golden boy. Golden boy found his former glow wasn’t actually gold after all; it sort of turned greenish with the MSM.

Who is in line with majority of Americans - President or democraters?.

CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll. May 4-6, 2007. N=1,028 adults nationwide.

** Do you think President Bush strongly supports, only moderately supports, or does not support the U.S. troops currently stationed in Iraq?

Strongly Supports: 57. Moderately Supports: 26. Does Not Support: 15. Unsure: 2.

** Do you think the Democrats in Congress strongly support, only moderately support, or do not support the U.S. troops currently stationed in Iraq?

Strongly Supports: 31. Moderately Supports: 42. Does Not Support: 25. Unsure: 3.

** Who do you think is MORE responsible for the fact that the U.S. troops currently in Iraq have not yet received additional funds: President Bush, because he vetoed the Iraq funding bill passed by Congress, OR the Democrats in Congress, because they passed an Iraq funding bill that they knew Bush would veto?

President Bush: 34. Democrats In Congress: 44. Both (vol.): 14. Neither (vol.): 4. Unsure: 4.

** One proposal would not provide additional funds for U.S. troops in Iraq and would require the U.S. to withdraw all its troops by March 2008. Would you favor or oppose that bill?

Favor: 39. Oppose: 60. Unsure: 2.

If this show gets any worse it will completely shrink from view. Wallace is awful. I think the state of the McCain campaign is exempilfied by his having to use this show for his first “official” announcement of his candidatcy. Even Brit is beginning to annoy me with his following negative stories about Rudy and Mitt with “how will this affect McCain”. But then Murdoch is a McCain supporter.

That sounds like a mandate.

This poll has been widely reported, right? Every pundit is quoting it, right? It will be mentioned on all Sunday morning talk shows, right?

Thanks for the thread and

Sorry it is the same as last year but it sort of creeped up on me and I suddenly realised it was today as we have ours earlier in the year.

McCain was awful in that last debate when he spit those memorized sentence ending with a grin. That gates of hell should be directed to the new sec.def. Gates who is nowhere near Rummy, who McCain attacked.

Since you brought it up!!
I still say we are having at least “some” influence over at Rupert’s place (FNC).IMHO it’s no coincidence that Michelle Malkin sat in for BOR(and did a stellar job better than O’Reilly best day) and some of the other gals are being seen more and more over there— Monica, Laura etc.All stuff we have been clamoring for here.I just don’t believe in coincidence.

It will be interesting to see how the msm’s former golden boy is treated this time by Mr. Potato head. The msm must have mixed emotions about McCain since they darn sure don’t want Rudy or Thompson or anyone else in there that can win, they just might be nice to ol’ McCain since he is so hated by the base, we shall see.

While I agree with you that Rupert Murdock’s heart is in the Right place, don’t you think we deserve more than “some” respect from Fox?

McCain. Hagel. Graham. Giuliani. The only glimmer of hope is McConnell. This looks like another snoozer of a Sunday morning for the GOP.

Can't the Republicans find anybody else to put up for an interview, or are they all in church?

McPain will be flapping his jaws about supporting the GWOT. That is the only issue he and I agree on so far.

With his stance on immigration, I wonder if anything will be said about the Farmers Branch vote requiring landowners to verify citizenship yesterday.


Farmers Branch -Ordinance 2903 Total Reporting:100%

For 4,058 67%

Against 1,941 32%

Since he has a Republican on this week we need to make sure his numbers are up. That’s the only way they will get the message.

Yes, of course,but it’s number that will move them. Little else. If Wallace stays near the bottom he is toast and maybe we can get a Malkin or Crowley, only time will tell.

I took one look at the lineup and I won't bother using any electricity to watch that bunch today. I have to unload my pickup anyway. Moved the daughter from her dorm into a ground level apartment yesterday, and she had some things she won't need for the next year. I will not miss the stairs going up to the fourth floor.

I would agree Brown will not value the special relationship as high as Blair.

As most of you know I did not care for Blair and Brown IMHO is worse.

Whilst I may not agree 100 per with Cameron I consider he would value the alliance between the 2 countries higher than Brown will.

Brown is forced to support the US on Afganistan and Iraq until our mission is considered complete but I do not expect much new support in any other areas.

I think CNN is trying to get some conservatives. I have noticed a few “fair and balance” reporting. FNC seems to be going the other direction.

The state of Oklahoma also passed a major anti-illegals bill this week.

Would that make supporters of this kind of legislation Graham Cracker bigots or is it Cracker Graham bigots?
