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.
Sounds just like Ron "the Commie" Kuby. He could always sue if he's not defending some terrorist or Mafia don at the present time.
Good grief! An Oprah press conference in its entirety. She is one of the most self-aggrandizing people I have ever heard.
Good morning, all.
I have a tardy slip right here.
FNFs were discussing Rosie O’Donut’s claim to be the next MSNBC super star. Good luck with that. Apparently PMSNBC has decided to emulate Air America. Good luck with that.
I voted already this morning for the local republican line. Our old reliable lever machines have been replaced by paper ballots that get ate by a machine. Hey I didn’t get a receipt. I may have voted for Pat Buchanan because I forgot to bring my reading glasses!
I was joking with one of the volunteers about the machines and Florida 2000. We both laughed about hanging chads.
Cheer up. Only 365 more days until the presidential election!

WASHINGTON Charlee Lockwood has never heard of Rush Limbaugh or listened to his radio program, and perhaps it's just as well. On Monday, the talk radio king told listeners that Democrats were exploiting the 18-year-old Yupik Eskimo, and that her emotional testimony that day in front of a U.S. House committee on global warming made him "really want to puke. I just want to throw up." "It's the Democrats exploiting a young child, ladies and gentlemen, for the advancement of a political issue that will grow the size of government and increase their control over everyone," Limbaugh told listeners...
Agreed. I lasted about 5 minutes. I cannot stand Mika and all of her simpery noise making in the background.
Rush is hot on Alaska!!!
Good morning folks.
I hear that MSNBC has hired Rosie O’Donnell. What an outfit this is.
Loosing the Kentucky governorship wasn’t a surprise. Something about corruption. Mississippi was a statement about how well the republican governor handled Katrina.
Joe was outraged that Bubba would use the swift boat card about Mrs. Flip Flop. Sounds like Bubba may have hurt her more than helped.
Joe slammed the republican congress for overriding Pres. Bush’s veto of this pork laden Water Bill. I agree.
No mention of “House Democrats on Tuesday narrowly managed to avert a bruising debate on a proposal to impeach Dick Cheney after Republicans, in a surprise maneuver, voted in favor of taking up the measure.” I did hear dem A.C. Hastings call Kisinnich a kook though.
On WABC they mentioned this “Poll finds 77% oppose licenses for illegals...” and it’s implications for “her” campaign.
Locally our young republican mayor was reelected. All in all republican seem to have done pretty well in this supposedly Blue state. Where we get killed is in the big cities and the limousine liberal parts of the state. Otherwise we are pretty red here in Connecticut.
Good morning, all.
No coffee yet so I won’t try to type anything.
Scarborough was kind of mocking NBC’s Algore week theme. Something about cutting down a tree for their benefit.
Good morning, all.
(Have a head cold. Took medicine. Slept like a brick.)
Joe Lieberman will be on with Bill Bennett in about 20 minutes. He gave a great speech yesterday taking the dems to task.
hope you’re feeling better, and to all, good wishes for a wonderful fall week-end.
Good Monday morning.
News flash...Michelle Obama is black...and she means to exploit it.
LOL. Barak Obama is not in this presidential race to win, he’s in it because it’s the right thing to do. His wife said so.
Planting questions is no big deal. Everybody does it. (How Clintonian!)
Oh, and Hillary really doesn’t need to plant questions. She’s running a GREAT campaign.
Read Power Line. I’m not crazy about McCain, but it’s pretty clear that he does not have to plant questions.
Joe hight lighted Hillary Clinton suddenly vulnerable as bruises start to show. I'd just as soon see her lose the primary but I still don't think that's gonna happen.
They showed just a short clip of Richard Ameritage finally admitting that he outed Valerie Flame but the way he did it was just as despicable as his years of silence. Joe made a comment about at least we got to see Karl Rove swinging on a rope for a year (or something to that effect). I don't know if he was being sarcastic or not. No mention of how Ameritages silence impacted Rove's or Scooter Libby's life so negatively. I saw Colin Powell at some Veteran's ceremony yesterday. He may be a War hero but he showed himself not to be an honorable man in this Flame affair.
So did I, McGruff, and my reaction was that he should not have been allowed there. He is not a man of honor.
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.”
Made it to another Friday good morning ping.
I am expecting to hear lots of comments about how Mrs. Clinton really bounced back at the debate last night. They finally found a group of people who could make Joe Biden look like the reasonable one.
LOL. The banner at the bottom read “The Morning Grind.” A pretty good description of this program.
My op. Talk about planting questioners. The Iraq veteran for peace just happen to be in the front row? His momma should have rehearsed her lines a little more. Wonder who wrote her statement/question? I wonder how the real soldiers who are "stuk in Irak" felt about this Momma's boy's whining.
Wolfie was an obedient dog. Apparently the word was given to take out Edwards. Thought he was going to cry after it was over. This John Roberts CNN reporter reminds me of another David Gregory. Campbell Brown’s debut a CNN? Looked like she’s put some meat on her bones. She needed it.
I have to laugh at Joe Biden and the rest saying they’ll work along side the republicans while every answer is prefaced with “George Bush, Dick Cheney and the Neo Cons has failed”. Anybody who does work with them will be targeted by most of us republicans in the primaries.
One thing about Mika. She seemed nervous that her father was going to be on the Show today. Probably thinks the evil News Busters will have a clip of him saying something senile or stupid.
CNN debate moderator Wolf Blitzer did an 'outstanding' job in Vegas, a senior adviser to the Hillary campaign said early Friday. 'He was outstanding, and did not gang up like Russert did in Philadelphia. He avoided the personal attacks, remained professional and ran the best debate so far. Voters were the big winners last night.'
A rival campaign insider charges: 'Wolf turned into a lamb. No follow-up question on Clinton's huge flip on drivers licenses?'
I knew I had seen debate Marines mom Catherine Jacksons name before and here it is:
Protesters employ monkey to decry Reids Iraq stance

Down the block, a similarly sized group of counter-demonstrators gathered. The local anti-war activists and veterans said they supported Reid.
My son was in Iraq three times, said Catherine Jackson of Las Vegas. I thank God hes home now. Enough is enough. We need to bring our troops home.
Democrats finally found a US Marine they can support---
An antiwar US Marine.
And... They gave him a rousing ovation at their debate on Thursday in Las Vegas.
From the CNN Democratic debate tonight antiwar Marine Christopher Jackson and his antiwar Marine mother Catherine Jackson were picked to ask the democratic candidates a question about Iran.
Can you say "planted question"?
Antiwar Marine Mom Catherine Jackson, a regular on the democratic circuit, asked about the war on Iran.
Think Progress was very impressed:
Jacksons mother, who was standing next to her son at the event, went on to say that after she finally got her son home from Iraq, members of the Bush administration and neoconservative members of Congress are beating the drums of war again.Dan Riehl notes that this antiwar mother was already used by Harry Reid back in May to demand that we bring the troops home now...
She said her son is still a member of the Marines Individual Ready Reserve and could be called up again. She concluded by asking the candidates, How are you going to show us your leadership on this issue now?
Good morning, all. Lookink at the Joe guest list is like Groundhog Day.
No Joe, but we do have the disgusting David Shuster.
Good grief...camera peers right down Ms. Mika’s sweater. Anything to get viewers, I guess.
Prognostication for Iowa, the Clinton Crime Family allows Obama to do well, though not win. Just well enough to continue to pretend there is an actual race on the dem side.
Darn. I missed that. As soon as I saw David Shyster I flipped the channel.
FNFs teased this Satan's got dirt on Obama story. They led with it. Bob Novak was going to be on at some time. They had the dem/rep pundits on to discuss it. Julian somebody with greasy looking hair was making excuses for the Clinton camp. They wouldn't do that. (Yeah just make the threat should be enough for that boy). Then the rep black girl got to comment. She said something interesting. The dems needs 90% of the black vote and 40% of the white. So they better not alienate them.
Anybody catch Novak?
How ironic. The Clinton's bringing up an opponents sex scandals.
