  3. How can you call for the impeachment of a president after only a few months? It took Bill Clinton about a year to start molesting interns and it took Obama some time to create the laughable "cash for clunkers" mess and lie to us about "weaning America off fossil fuel" while the rest of the world was gobbling it up and getting rich. The trouble with lefties is that they want to hear propaganda rather than action. Bill Clinton told us that Saddam was developing WMD's and then forgot about it. Obama listed the jihadist countries that were a threat to the U.S. and then forgot about it

    1. The trouble with too many who comment at blogs is their apparent unwillingness to acknowledge-much-less-address the topic at hand in the spirit with which it was posted.

  4. I like the Lindell guy. He looks like he'd be a good neighbor. He appearance reminds me of a sympathetic John Candy in Plains, Trains and Automobiles.

    Reruns, of course.

    I am so sick of all the rest of it, although it is entertaining watching the unhinged left in the Crazy Train hurtling down the hill to Batshitville.

    1. Mike Lindell USED to bug the you-know-what out of me, but after seeing his ubiquitous, unavoidable presence for a while I began to see the guy –– unlike most of the characters disporting themselves on the Tube at regular intervals –– is an AUTHENTIC human being. He's awkward, unpolished, decidedly provincial, and the way he keeps hugging his precious pillow as he pats it makes him appear as vulnerable –– and as naive –– as a child. After a while it grows in you, and you begin to regard him as rather endearing.

      At any rate, I'd MUCH rather watch Mike pat his pillow than listen to Hillary, or Nancy, or Harry, or Barbara Boxer, or John McPain or Susie Collins, Upchuck Schumer, or ANY of the politicos and their depraved "handlers."

      Sad when there is virtually NOTHING NEW that seems the least bit tolerable.

  5. Liberals, being the Socialists that they are, are overjoyed at the prospect of an even more socialistic France crawling with assorted, but un-vetted Islamists, but their heads are exploding over the firing of James Comey.
    All those idiotic shenanigans about Trump being involved in with the Russians, of which during six months of official FBI investigations, showed that Comey had found exactly zero evidence.. Yes, that’s about it a big Zero!
    While the real Criminal act was preventing Hillary from being indicted…and from Huma being indicted…and from Loretta Lynch being indicted, from Susan Rice being indicted and possibly even keeping Obama from being in Jail himself.
    Does anyone really believe that Comey couldn’t find any intent in what Hillary did? Or what Huma did and that neither Hillary or Huma won’t be charged for Hillary’s emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop? If so then Pass the Koolaide please.

    1. SAL, what you say may have a good deal of truth in it, BUT you are NOT responding to the POST.

      What the hell is the MATTER with you? Can't you READ –– or do you just not BOTHER?

      THIS blog is NOT a DUMPING GROUND for STRAY COMMENTARY.

  6. I find it deplorable that you made remarks against the darling of the right Tucker. He went to the school of O'rilly/Hannity, ask a question then insert your own opinion for the answer because your guest is just for show. He does have a new twist with the facial expressions that put him at the top of the annoying category.

    Your comment about the magnificent Maxine was a gut buster. The women who does not have the brains to breath on he own chastises DJT about ethics.

    I will vote for reruns every time except 3 which is a toss up.

    1. Thanks, Skud. Now THAT is the sort of response we hope to get around here, and so rarely do.

      I stopped watching O'Reilly years ago, and can't stand Tucker's new attempt to fill O'Reilly's shoes. Just listening to the shenanigans makes me feel anxious, irate and short of breath. It's a TERRIBLE format, and richly deserves to fail.

      That said, Tucker's heart is in the right place, I'm sure, but he sounds lke an old maid in pants in the ragged edge of hysteria too much of the time. As I see it, the problem is not with his face, which is really quite handsome, but his VOICE gets higher and higher the more excited he gets till it SQUEAKS, and then he sounds weak and ineffectual –– almost effeminate. That on top of being deliberately rude to his guests by yapping at them like a rabid fox terrier makes his show virtually unwatchable.

      I don't think it's all Tucker'sfault, though. He MUST be taking orders from higher-ups who want to boost ratings and concern themselves solely with the Bottom Line.

      Hannity is more tolerable, beause he often has guests of high quality, and even though poor Hannity is NOT very bright and talks too much, at least he acnowledges the value of soke ofhis better guests, and often let's them talk virtually uninterrupted –– AFTER he's made a ponderous, tedious introduction, of course. (:-o

      FOX is sinking fast. It has been for a couple of years –– at least. Taking on that hard, cold, agate-eyed, troublemaking Megyn Kelly was a BIG wrong turn for FOX.

      If it weren't for old movies, reruns from the days before the USA dumped itself into History's Toilet, and some of the Sunday night dramas on PBS , I would have given up my cable subscription years ago.

      More than 90% of what we get from the television industry today is ESS-AITCH-EYE-TEA!

  7. LOL! I have C-Span on so much, I probably have heard all those boring lectures - yet can't remember a thing about any of them. ;)

    1. C-span? Like congress is ever going to put Reality on display? You may want to consider that going forward. Or not.

  8. Where is the choice "none of the above"? I would read a good book instead.

    But if I must choose...

    I choose #4 for Numbers I-III and V-VI: I love watching reruns of vintage TV shows.

    I choose #3 for Number 4: Listen to Tucker Carlson constantly interrupt and talk over his guests? I can't stand those damn pillow commercials. I've check the pillows' price. Heh.

  9. I choose nada. Time is much too valuable to spend time on has been.

    1. You were not given that option, therefore you did NOT really play the game.

      I doubt if you knew it was intended to be comical not informative.

  11. I. 1 -- I have a My Pillow . It's quit comfortable. Very pleased.

    II. None of the above.

    III. 4 - Not real appearing but better than a Hillary campaign speech.

    IV. 3 - If I must, the smirking little weasel is an effective reminder of how the right has destroyed the political conversation.

    V. Abstain.

    VI. 3 might be quite informative.
    If 4 had been an option for V above I would have gladly chosen it. Great show.

    1. Thank you for playing the game, Ducky. Your participation held some surprises –– meaning we were in actual agreement some of the time. Astonishing, what? ;-).

      Naturally, I do not agree that it has The Right" whohas "destroyed political conversation," we have merely forced the nation to be aware that we EXIST –– a truth the ENEMEDIA had suppressed with enormous success for several decades. Nevertheless, I have to agree that strident boorishess, insolence, perpetual mockery, and childish temper tantrums do not make for fruitful conversation any more than they help the public become better informed and less ignorant.

    2. I must agree with ducky on his post about the right destroying political conversation. Look at how many uninterrupted town hall speeches conservative politicians give. There are Hundreds of college commencement speeches that conservatives are invited to. Or how many TV shows are cancelled because the actor/host is conservative.
      Wait, I misread his post and thought he said liberals, sorry Duck.
