Bill/Hillary drop the ball?

Posted on 12/31/2008 9:17:00 PM PST by Reddy

Did the Times Square New Year's Eve ball drop malfunction?? We didn't see it drop! Hill/Billary were supposed to push the button to release it. If so, it only proves that the Dems can't even drop the ball right!!

Did anyone else (not) see this?

I'm taking that as a really, really good sign.

I knew Jimmy Carter's reelection campaign was doomed when the balloons refused to fall!

Bill had a ball drop? Hill dropped a lot more than (that) one. :[]

“Yes it did indeed drop on time”

We were watching ABC... normally they follow the ball down. They flashed on it right at midnight, then it was never seen again... even in the background shots.

Thank goodness they only showed Hill/Billary once after ll:30pm.

Turned on ABC with about 10 minutes to go. I could put up with poor Dick Clark’s slurry speech but when they cut to the Arkansas Hillbillys I turned the channel.

When I was in 8th/9th grade, went to the Saturday night Dick Clark Show in NYC a couple of times ... was a HUGH American Bandstand/Dick Clark fan. Sorry he’s suffered a stroke.

I watched Bill Hemmer and Megyn Kelly on Fox .... they are both freezing, as are all the revelers. Couldn’t PAY me enough to go to Times Square. Even when I lived in NYC.
Happy New Year !!!

The family watched it. Our dialogue went like this:

8yo daughter: "Daddy, who is that with their hand on the ball?"

Me: "No one, honey. No one."

Yes, this is the first time my kids have been able to watch the ball drop. My hubby kept ranting & raving about “get these idiots off my TV”, so it kind of ruined the moment.

Did anyone watch Robbie Maddison do the motorcycle jump onto the Arc de Triumph and then off of it in Las Vegas. Absolutely crazy and spectacular at the same time.

Why start the New Year off the wrong way by watching what is not human?

We felt bad for Dick Clark. Shadow of his former self.

The Fox show was just plain bad, too. Robbie Knievel in between some faux idol and borderline porno show in Vegas.

No thanks.

No wonder the Muslims want to bomb us.

Not only did one have to watch the Clintons, the stupid announcer on ABC said something about “hope and change” in the New Year a few seconds before midnight. I just got so sick of the Democrat propaganda, I didn’t even wait until midnight to see the moment.

Absolutely! It was great. He was a little long on the jump back down, but he held the bike up all the way. I saw it on ESPN. Good stuff.

Thank goodness we missed all that. I was joking with my husband earlier how Dick Clark probably still looked 25. We only turned the “show” on 3 minutes before midnight, off again right at midnight.

You are right about that. It's just that it was mountaineer1997 who has the Robbies mixed up. This Robbie is from down under.

I noticed that, too. Then I think he just wanted to be the manly man from down under (which he certainly is). I've read that women down under are treated much differently down there. Plus, he owes a lot to his team mates and his head was certainly spinning. No doubt.

Good question.. lol

I probably should retire that tagline. I had actually forgotten that I even had one (usually don't), since I do much more lurking than posting.

They’d better check to make sure that light-fingered Bill & Hill didn’t steal the ball.

I noticed thet BJC’s red nose had evidnece of the Pinnochio effect, by the time the pig is off the stage his nose will be longer that Hill’s strap-on! My party pooper comment, ‘Was I dreaming and Hillary won the election, what ever happened to the other Rat candidate?’

“It was weird how standoffish he was to his fiance.”

I noticed that too. Maybe there wasn’t anything to it but he seemed more affectionate towards his buddies than he did with his girlfriend. Maybe it was just a macho thing, not sure. Still, the jump was unbelievable.

Can someone explain to me why Bill Clinton always looks as though he is trying to catch flies with his mouth hanging open????

That guy is a good candidate for Nemenda, the early Alzheimers drug, me thinks.................he always looks as though he has NOT a clue!!
