Air America just folded.


conservatives just want IT more.


Republicans like to listen to each other rant. Many democrats just don't... that's why I've always thought they had such listenership problems. That, and syndication.

And who thinks Randi Rhodes is easy to listen to, anyway? Ugh.

He was AWESOME on "Crazy Train."  Too bad about that airplane house buzzing bit.














Too... soon?
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Libs aren't like conservatives, the issues really are secondary it's like a difference in brain chemistry.

Whether it was slavery, woman's suffrage, social security, wars, health care etc. It's a different way of looking at the world.

A quote someone told me that's sadly true, especially in light of the last week's events (I'm paraphrasing - I don't remember the exact quote):

In the event of a fight, the Democrats are standing there thumbing through the Marquess de Queensberry rules while the Republicans are kneeing them in the balls.
I'll probably go into the wee hours.

So...

Massachusetts, Conan/Leno, the Supreme Court thing, Air America.

What's next?

I think you know what's next, Martin. I think you know.

So why are you keeping it from us? We can take it.

With all the "Good guys win in 2010" talk (WHICH I SUPPORT) January has been a lousy start.

Maybe we're like Rocky when he's gone too fancy with his robot and nice car and mansion. We need to take some lumps before we go run up that mountain in Russia and chase wild chickens to get back in the ring and WIN against the Dragos of 2010.

Or January just blows.

As far as the Supreme Court, we're just going to reach the point where everyone gets sick of it and there's a huge backlash, even moreso than before. Politicians are many things, but they are not subtle in the slightest. And when this extra money means we are getting waterboarded (sorry, it's an appropriate metaphor) with ads, it will piss off both parties. The only thing I like about the tea party people is that most of the people on the ground are just as anti-corporate as liberal Democrats, they just haven't realized it yet.

As far as Democrats go, they deserve to lose in the worst way imaginable. I just wish we could find some way to slam into their pointy little heads that the votes they WOULD HAVE gotten are more important than the votes they were never going to get.

The sky is falling.
Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

It's true - Andy's very hard-boiled. He knows that only sissies care about politics.

Is it too soon to take credit for killing this thread?

I think the credit goes to politics, not you.  Sorry.

Rick Perry reminds me of the guy who rides a nuclear bomb at the end of Dr. Strangelove, yelling "yee-haw" and waving his ten-gallon hat. Is this what we have to look forward to in 2013? After this guy finishes his term in office, will the U.S. be a nuclear wasteland or simply a country in which large maximum-security prisons have mostly replaced towns and cities?
