  1. Durward Kirby will get to the bottom of the missing Rossen tape I’m sure. Took a while, but Alexander Haig finaly gave a plausible explanation of the Nixon “eighteen minute gap”.

  2. No hint of “attitude” in Wemple’s report. He was much more stimulated by Ed Henry’s lap dance to cop some.

  3. Maybe we shouldn’t talk about anybody unless they’re in the media. Talking about Fox bashers at a certain site, particularly what they tweet, only leads to incessant flame wars.

    • You make a good point. Their lying about FNC and its people at the other sites make tongue-biting difficult, but I’m not inclined to go to those places. Haven’t for some time. The lot are for the most part banned where I do go. Bump into some old comrades at Mediiaite now and then, but not often.

  4. Good golly Miss Molly! Don’t have a clue where that saying came from but that’s what I felt today catching on Johnny $s from the last few days. Not having time to spend much on this internet thing since I was having a garage sale selling my garbage to others. Only thing that didn’t sell that I thought would sell was an enormous stuffed dog. My daughter’s old boyfriend had won it for her at the county fair or something. She finally gave approval to get rid of it cuz she has a new guy (who I like very much, thank goodness!).

    Here’s to hoping the sniping has gotten out of everyone’s system because it took me forever to wade through the comments from the last couple of days.

    To add something cable related so my comment sticks: I did not watch cable TV for the last couple of days. Did I miss anything important?

      • beat me to it. but can you play it? came back from din din. tomi asleep watched old Prince and Jon bonamassa vids. played along and could see why they are so good. now i need to watch some little richard, because he was another weird guy that could really play.

        • Richard was bi sexual and did drugs, but he is a genius, and prince was no good. check into yer local hospital.

          • I am all forgiving until a person lets the drugs kill. Then they are unredeemable. Dopes. Forever. Dopes.

            Rush Limbaugh a genius. A hero.

          • oh, i see, you are God. all your posts can only make sense with that caveat. oh and God, do note all the people doctors kill with errors, please tell me where those patients go, i certainly am no judge.

          • This is the difference between a troll who is a born troll because of a personality disorder (Royal) and someone who is a consummate troll because they understand psychology and nothing is personal.

            One you can spot an island away, the latter you ascertain only when you or someone else is pulling their hair out for absolutely no good reason.

          • no that would be you. what people create is objective, how you feel about them is subjective. how you feel about people is all you have spoken of. not once have i posted about what i feel about them, only what they produce.

  5. woke up this morning, clicked drudge. both parties are insane. don’t feel so bad about a 1 party police state. how is it taxes are much much much lower and interaction with the government much less in a police state than in the “land of liberty”? y’all be frogs in a pot. bubble bubble.

    • Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
      Who never to himself hath said,
      This is my own, my native land!
      Whose heart hath ne’er within him burn’d,
      As home his footsteps he hath turn’d,
      From wandering on a foreign strand!
      If such there breathe, go, mark him well;
      For him no Minstrel raptures swell;
      High though his titles, proud his name,
      Boundless his wealth as wish can claim;
      Despite those titles, power, and pelf,
      The wretch, concentred all in self,
      Living, shall forfeit fair renown,
      And, doubly dying, shall go down
      To the vile dust, from whence he sprung,
      Unwept, unhonour’d, and unsung.

          • worry about yourself for a change. i post when i am wrong that i am wrong. an ability you seem not to have. well why bother, you are jut a frog that cannot sense the changes in temperature.

          • Larry to self, have you been wrong on Prince?
            Self to Larry, nope, guy let drugs take his life after all too many warnings. A dope.
            Janis Joplin a dope.
            JImmi Hendrix a dope.
            Jim Morrison a dope.
            Keith Moon a dope.

            Barely scratching the surface. RIbbit.

          • seems you flunked art and are self obsessed. what type of person they were or Van Gogh or Michaleangelo were has nothing to do with what they created. frankly, you are being a dope about it. you sound like Mrs Gore

          • I always meant Prince (and the others I listed) was a dope as a person, not as an artist. Actually, that’s my whole point. You seem stubbornly stuck in that artist judging gear even after Cecelia pointed out that wasn’t what I was doing. You’re judging me again with whatever is going on in your brain, not mine. Seems to be a trait of yours of which you may not be self aware?

          • sure. troll. not self aware. you judge personality and call me judgmental. i only speak of objective production and i have the problem. blah blah blah. let J$ be the judge and speak no more.

          • All I’ve done is counterpunch, from the day you labeled my perfectly reasonable opinion a “cheap shot”. Now name-calling?

          • lie. i have never brought it up first again. i am fine that we do not agree. you have been nasty and cc as well and i have not once responded in kind. i do not recall calling anyone names here. until today i have never used the word “dope”, accused someone of being a troll or any of that. we disagreed on the ugly gringo deal and you and cc have initiated ever since, not i. so the counter punch comment is a lie. all the evidence is in. i rest. there is nothing to add let J$ adjudicate. i will live with what he says as i think he understands the definition of fair. it is his home that this has taken place in.

          • oh and excuse me, talking ugly about the recently dead is a cheap shot. nasty. uncalled for. i thought you referred to the ugly gringo disagreement but i think you refer to both, now it is all out. i await a smart comment. not smart aleck for a change J$.

          • if i have anything to say i do it only in public. i do not talk behind people’s backs. however you are correct, i should have couched it in a request with the word please prominently used.

          • I apologize, gc. I’ve misread your cordiality and what I thought was playful pertinaciousness and fell into the sort of overly familiar teasing banter I take with my brothers and a few other male friends.

            That’s a regional thing that doesn’t always translate well in other places, domestically and certainly internationally.

            I meant no offense. Forgive me.

          • i never took offense at teasing. i self depreciate. or even your arguing. i stop responding at the personal judgement, name calling etc. apology accepted.

    • Well, when you insist that someone share your opinion about about an artist, you might not understand police state when you see it.

      • if you think art is subjective then you allow people to argue that hallmark publishes great poetry. a police state is also where you need a permit to change out a window or build a dog house. maybe you missed the point.

          • not me. i specifically stated i do not care what type of person he was or any artist is, i specifically only posted about qualities that were about the creation of art. you are reading a post other than mine. unlike a politician, or someone you marry or do business with their character or personal predilections are separate from what they produce. what they produce is objective, what you like has nothing to do with them.

  6. Amazingly the MSM is going after Trump full throttle with the 25 year old phonecall story of him pretending to be someone else. I’m talking lead story on CBS Staturday Morning and NBC Nightly news with ABC NEWS using a voice analyst. All to show Trump lies. DUH?! And about such trivial crap? I mean it’s not in the same league as “You like your doctor..” or “I did not have sex with…”, or “the FBI is only conducting a security analysis”. Reminds me of Icebreath’s inability to distinguish.
    Silly. Stupid. Amusing.
