Here is a link to McGruffs backup board if Free Republic is down click here which hasn't been happening much lately thanks to the fine work of the FR team.
Good morning, folks.
Given the success in Iraq, the media is going after the contractors, as you all know.
Egad, I thought Maddy Notsobright could get any worse looking, but I was wrong.
And that 50 pound pin she is sporting, OMG.
At the start of the show Mika was all puffed that her interview with Michelle Osama was going to be shown. Geez, it’s not like she was interviewing Benazir Bhutto or someone of that stature.
Both CNN and FNFs were teasing that Benazir Bhutto would be calling into their show. Maybe Mika can interview next weekend LOL.
Joe was making childish under his breath comments while Mika was reading the headlines. She didn’t let him interrupt her reading. What a pro. It was a little childish but I chuckled.

DRUDGE FLASH | Nov 13 2007
The college student who says she was told what question to ask at one of Sen. Hillary Clinton's campaign events--and whose story in her campus newspaper has now made its way around the world--said Monday that "voters have a right to know what happened, adding that she "wasn't the only one at the event who was a plant." In an exclusive taped interview with CNN, Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, a sophomore at Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, said that giving anyone specific questions to ask is "dishonest," and the whole incident has given her a negative outlook on politics. Gallo-Chasanoff, an undecided...
Also I saw tape of Borac Osama making a statement about this incident yesterday and he couldn't even put a coherent sentence together. That's good news for us if Satan is defeated in the primary.

CNN's Wolf Blitzer has been warned not to focus Thursday's Dem debate on Hillary. 'This campaign is about issues, not on who we can bring down and destroy,' top Clinton insider explains. 'Blitzer should not go down to the levels of character attack and pull 'a Russert.'' Blitzer is set to moderate debate from Vegas, with questions also being posed by Suzanne Malveaux... Developing.
Good morning, all.
The most lethargic show on tv continues.
Good morning, and my thanks for your fortitude in watching that show! Your reporting on it is a welcome release from my enduring it, Babbah. 8)
Then Joe went on to predict the demise of all the republicans except Romney and Giuliani. He was particularly rough on Fred Thompson. We shall see.
Joe was also picking on Mika concerning something she said about the Fred Thompson campaign yesterday in the 9 AM hour. She couldn’t recall the issue.
Joe thought this was outrageous. Tancredo terror ad gets viewer warning . I watched it at thought it was quite appropriate.
Joe take a chill pill or have a few more cocktails tonight.
OMG, Joe “I’m here to convince you that Killary! is wonderful” Klein is holding forth on how really, truly marvelous she is. She has reinvented herself...the two Joes agree.
She’s intense, but really relaxed. Her proposals are the most sophisticated and well thought out.
Nobody has ever turned on her, so she must treat her staff with respect. (This is gag inducing.)
Good morning, ya’ll.
Good grief, Tom Aspell is reporting on ballons and ice cream sellers in Baghdad. I must still be asleep.
The media is insistant on resurrecting the campaign of John McCain. This time in the person of John Harwood.
Lisa Myers second chin is now 3 times the size of the original.
That made me chuckle in my office. Don't think anyone heard me.
Tom Aspell is reporting on ballons and ice cream sellers in Baghdad.
It must have really hurt him to have to report the other day that it looks like the surge is working. Of course he still used his negative monotone voice doing it. He must be the life of the party.
Scarborough took a shot at CNN and Rick Sachez for trying to make something out of this "Satan's a bitch" comment one of John McCain's supporters said.
Although Mika tried to make this House Passes Anti-War Bill sound bad for the Bush administration. Joe said Bush will just veto it again. They haven't won one of these battles. Joe actually sounded a little depressed about that. Hmmm?
Program your VCRs. Mika's dad will be on the show tomorrow. Don't expect the Chris Wallace interview of Mike Wallace though. Maybe Scarborough will get a shot or two in. That would be great.
A little Imus related news? Santas warned 'ho ho ho' offensive to women.
Incredible. Can't make this up!
A shocking death in my immediate family in August has left me wordless. I hope to start to get over it soon...
We’ll try to keep you up to date until you can get back to normal. Hugs.
Another Imus Update [Greg Pollowitz]
He’ll be on TV, too:
Don Imus is hanging his familiar cowboy hat in a new television home: RFD-TV.
The radio personality, who returns to the airwaves Dec. 3 on WABC-AM, will debut the same day on the seven-year-old cable and satellite television station that caters to viewers with homes on the range, the Rural Media Group, Inc., announced Wednesday.
The radio show will be simulcast on weekdays from 6-9 a.m., and will be rebroadcast from 6-9 p.m. each evening, said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of the Rural Media Group. The program will also be available to RFD’s nearly 30 million homes through on-demand services, Gottsch said.
Imus signed a five-year agreement with RFD, Gottsch said. An e-mail sent to Imus’ lawyer for comment was not immediately returned Wednesday.
meema, I am so sorry to hear that. Good thoughts and prayers for you and all affected.
Crucially, many of Mr. Imus big-name guests from the worlds of politics and media appear ready to welcome him back with open arms, unconcerned about the inevitable charges that by returning to the scene of the crime, theyre accessories to buddy-buddy bigotry. Indeed, Mr. Carvillenot a man known for turning down opportunities for publicitytold The Observer that hes already locked in as a guest on Mr. Imus first day back.
The New Yorkers Ken Auletta was similarly unequivocal. I said I wouldnt go on at the time of the controversy, he told The Observer. But I wouldnt make that same claim today. Because I think people deserve second chances. If you believe in rehabilitation, if you dont believe in the death penalty, you believe that some people can be reformed and changed....
And even after his fall from grace, Mr. Imus would appear to be a safe bet on that score. Mr. Boyce said that a number of national advertisers had already lined up behind Mr. Imus, though he declined to name any. I can tell you from talking to our sales force thats out pitching the show, I dont think they have had a great deal of resistance, he said...
According to Mr. Boyce, for the past couple of weeks since the deal was inked, Mr. Imus, who declined to be interviewed for this story, has been micromanaging every facet of the soon-to-launch program, from the sound of the jingles to the look of the clock, to the frequency and timing of the commercial breaks. Hes intimately involved with these decisions, said Mr. Boyce. This isnt a guy who is sitting back with his feet propped up letting other people put this show on the air.
One of Mr. Imus priorities seems to be bringing back his old gang. Charles McCord, Mr. Imus longtime on-air sidekick, will return to the show, according to Mr. Boyce. And Bernard McGuirk, the producer who, during an on-air call, goaded Mr. Imus into making his fateful comments about the Rutgers team, is rumored to have an off-air rolethough Mr. Boyce wouldnt comment on it.
I hope I do not have to hear one word about the “scandal.”
