      • Indeed he did — presumably much to the delight of our ‘buddy’ Joe Concha, who, as you probably know, is on record for predicting Kasich to be the nominee.

    • Everyone supporting Trump should drop him & support Walker or Kasich

      Trump’s numbers vs Hillary is not making me confident!

    • It doesn’t matter about a top 10 anymore. It was reported Wednesday Fox changed it again and said ALL of those running will be on stage for the first debate. So the poll numbers are meaningless now.

      • ALL of those running will be on stage for the first debate.

        Did you mean debates — one at 5:00 and the Top 10 debate at 9:00?

        The report you mentioned referred to the first (or 5 pm) debate only, which will now allow those with less than 1% in the polls to participate.

          • Still not following you.

            Why did you assume “the poll numbers are meaningless” when it’s quite the opposite?

            Perhaps another commenter can chime in and explain what you mean. I’m baffled.

  1. That was a great TBT Shep clip. Thank you for posting .
    I actually remember that clip…lol. I do love Shep having a Rant 🙂

  2. Don’t worry Toure’ , you can have a show on youtube talking about 9/11 conspiracies like others do on the internet .

  3. Coming up tonight on MSNBC – Rachel Maddow will try to figure out the difference between a part of her anatomy and a hole in the ground.

    • I watched part of her show last night……she said something like Fox is effective ending the campaigns of the people who don’t make the cut…….how dumb are her viewers…I mean like twitter stooges dumb or what…….its a long way till the first vote is taken and its the very first debate…..and CNN doing the same thing. How dumb would someone be who dropped out now because the didn’t make a debate this far out.

      I’ve been watching a lot Of MSNBC and CNN in the last few weeks……….if Fox treated Liberals like they treat Cons……the twitter stooges head would explode.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 Shep reads an email
    4 fails the trust test
    3 CNN host stung
    2 doesn’t report
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Greta sticks up for Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

  5. Race baiter/Fox hater joint fodder: O’Reilly used the phrase “you people in Washington”–as in “Are you people in Washington going to respect the law or not?”–one sentence after referring to President Obama and Attorney General Lynch. You know what’s going to be leveled at Bill for the first two words of that phrase.

    • Another topic found its way into the Next Week Triangle at the end of Weekdays with Bernie. If Bill says a topic that there wasn’t time for will be saved for next week, chances are it will never see the light of day.

    • It wasn’t until a few years ago that I was aware that “you people” could conceivably have a racial connotation. Actually, it still doesn’t.

  6. Griffin: “Ed Schultz, Krystal Ball, Abby Huntsman and Toure will be leaving MSNBC. Please join me in thanking them for their numerous contributions over the past several years, and in wishing them great success.”
    Cardboad box for belongings, security escort out the door on their way to great success.

    • Krystal Ball will probably try & get a gig with FOX News

      Don’t know if Roger Ailes is interested but since she’s pretty he might be =P

      • Oy. I hope that doesn’t happen. Although it would be amusing to see the people who’ve been praising her as a wonderful person and a fine pundit do the inevitable about face to claim she’s a talentless bimbette. Which would happen almost instantaneously.
