Good morning, AB! Thanks for posting another Sunday lineup.

Instead of GOP shining stars, we see black holes in the lineup with weasels Graham, McCain and Huckabee.

Eliott Spitzer will be on Client Nine News on the Fareed Zakaria show; Joe Kline, president of Client Nine News, will be on with Howie to discuss the new prime time show for the disgraced democrat governor and his co-hostess, the faux con Kathleen Parker.

Fox&Friends have been talking about the most recent Biden-blunder, his comment about jobs not coming back and the video of him at the ice cream store yesterday.

The morning line-up looks like the typical regulars. I see Mc and Cheezy (Graham) re-found the cameras. They’ve been gone a long time — unusual for them.

Today is the last day on my cable free view of some premium channels. I may check out the TV guide to see if they provide anything more interesting.

Thanks AB for posting this thread week after week. It is much appreciated.

Another less than telly Sunday for the tv talk shows. It will be up to us to bring forth the true topics of the week since none of the Drivebys will be interested in doing so. (Wow do I ever miss Jack Bauer)

Happy Sunday, Alas and All...Fox is featuring General Petraeus tonight in a special called “American Commander” at 9 p.m. Think I’ll skip hearing about the Huckster’s big decision on 2012 this morning.

Great catch NN and good job in steering that nasty tropical disturbance away from us,how do you do it?

Looks like the rats and rinos are invested in the Huckster since they feel he is the easiest of the rino candidates to roll.

Sorry DBM/DNC The Huckster had his chance and blew it horribly.

Wallace is promo-ing FNS. He is having Huckabee as his guest and comments that Huckabee is the current frontrunner and ‘might’ be running again.

[Does the sun rise in the East? Is the Pope Catholic? Does a bear sh*t in the woods? Is Huckabee running again? Many questions are ‘rhetorical’ and elicit an obvious answer.]

I think a lot of folks will be tuned in to the England-Germany match this morning. Speaking of the Brits, Prince Harry is in town honoring veterans and running with the Wounded Warriors in Central Park.

I’m actually encouraged by the Biden wiseass remark. My otherwise non-political wife was scanning the Sunday paper, which we only buy for the store ads, and saw it. She was royally torked off. She even asked me how we can fire a vice president (I told her impeachment is the only way I know of). Then my father-in-law swung by to take my kids to McDonalds breakfast before church (an Alas Babylon family tradition) and he was also disgusted by it. They both agree the dems have to go!

If that is the reaction otherwise non-political people are having about Biden then maybe there is far greater hope coming this November!

Why is fox going on and on about Spitzer and his using prostitutes....THAT was not the real reason he is such a pig...He prosecuted prostitutes harshly and unfairly, like he did so many others...using his position for political gain...all the while being a “john” himself.

The disgusting thing about spitzer is his misuse of his office to destroy political competitors and his hypocrisy!

The GOP needs a dark horse to come out of the ranks of governors or somewhere else just to get all the same-OLDs' names out of the news. That same-OLD bunch are little more than a bunch of wannabe losers.

The GOP needs some fresh faces and fresh names.

Eeesh...Snake Oil Salesman Huckabee has established residency in Florida. Suspect it is a positioning ploy for his 2012 run for POTUS.

Fishing is always a good bet,but don't leave us. As usual we need your wisdom.

Here, I'll give you a good fish tale I distributed last week.

In Islamorada, a new Charter Capt. Rick Rodriquez who recently purchased the charter boat Sea Horse leased his vessel for the day to a plastic surgeon Dr. Barry from Miami who,along with friends, hoped to enjoy some offshore fishing for the day.

After catching the usual school size dolphin some 16 miles offshore they hooked up a huge blue marlin.The marlin ate using a chrome/head Alien lure trolled at 8 knots on 60 lb. line.

The fish hit hard and started a huge run stripping line off the reel.

Eight hours later they were still fighting the blue marlin. The mate fought him for four hours and everyone else on the boat got to take a turn trying to beat the blue into submission. These fish are seldom killed these days but instead released in good shape after a photo session at the boat.

At one point all 600 yards of 60 lb. line was off the reel. They were down to the knot tied to the spool, if the line broke the fish would be lost.

The line began to stretch, increased pressure was placed on the giant fish and he turned.

Slowly they regained some of the lost line.

After eight hours about 100 feet below the surface sharks got a hold of what may have been a dead marlin at that point. They will fight to the death from time to time.

The carcass was hand lined aboard the Seahorse and back at the dock it weighed 300 lbs.

Best guesses were the actual fish weighed from 700-1,000 lbs.

A good fish story and it happened Wednesday.

Biden was picked to be a distraction and the dumb white guy to make the black guy look smarter. We need to be wise enough to not laugh at the Biden distractions as that gives Soros what he wants.

Today’s line up is a bunch of Rino losers. I see one maybe two conservatives and I don’t see anyone being brave enough to really drive home the criticism of Obama’s commie policies and how he’s destroying the nation with malice.

YOU just hit the key to getting rid of the socialists AB. The non-politicals along with the Tea Party Patriots are outraged.

It takes a lot to get them pissed but they are and it will be a slaughter in Nov. We shoulder take both houses.

Marxism,destruction of a once great country and borrowing from our kids futures have never been winning political tools. The rats will find out the hard way.

First time I heard Huckster was at CPAC. He opened his speech with, "I was a poor boy from Hope, Arkansas."

Totally creepy. He studied the Clinton playbook carefully.

“The Huckster makes my skin crawl. Always has.”

Ditto. The “lying sack of excrement” alarm goes off inside my head every time I’ve ever seen him. Same thing happened with Bill Clinton.

Thanks for thread AB. GOP needs something new and dynamic to defeat the beast (The One, his ACORN army, all the illegal alien voters we’ll have in 2012, voter and campaign finance fraud); not a McCain rerun (e.g. Huckster). Oh let it be so...Petraeus was said to be reconsidering the ROE, Adm. Mullen quickly rushed to Karzai’s side to reconfirm we will avoid civilian deaths at all costs. This is Petraeus’ cue to say, well sorry, CIC but I won’t agree to wantonly sacrifice my troops so I resign. He goes on a speaking tour, and follows Eisenhower’s path into White House.

Believe it or not shrimping is a real conundrum for fisherman.

There is a thing called by-catch which has devastated many fin fish species all over the Gulf. Shrimping is on the outs these days.

On the other hand when some of us go fishing the first place we go to are the shrimp boats where we can get some of the by-catch to use for bait and chum.

Ying and yang at work here.
