  1. What’s NOT hot: White House Cooresondents’s Dinner. Nero fiddles while Rome burns. Maybe the next President will have the courage and good sense to say, “I’m not coming”.

  2. Doctor $’s place gets a makeover:

    All that time to come up with a new slogan and this is what they got? I guess it’s better than “Republicans get you stuck in a ditch and take you in reverse cuz Republican starts with an “R” and Democrats take you forward cuz Democrats starts with a “D” and so does “drive”. Democrats get you out of the ditch because they drive with the “D” and stuff and Republicans go backwards cuz of the “R” and republicans and reverse. Get it?”

    Yep, it’s better than that..but not by a lot.

    Can Heather Nauert go back to FNC full time?
    It’s silly that she’s the co anchor 4:30am to 7am on FOX5 in NYC and is a co anchor of FOX & Friends First 5am-6am.
    You can’t do both shows and FOX5 now has to have a regular sub when Heather is on FOX & Friends First.
    She should be on FOX5 or FNC.

    “Forward”: Because “Yes We Can” was way too specific.

    They actually used a reasonable facsimile of that slogan in 2010 and we all remember how successful the Democratics were in that election. (warning: Jon Stewart video)

    The video also shows that in 2010, Democratics ran on an “improving” economy, health care, student loans, regulatory reform and STILL got crushed. All resume bullets he’s banking on working this year.

  7. Wow, I just saw Mike Baker on MSNBC – NOW with Alex. I’ve never seen him on MSNBC or CNN before. I hope he’s not leaving FNC as a contributor.

  8. What’s on my mind. Simple. Check the dates:

    Ooops, April 30 fell in mrach this year. 🙂

    I thought at first, when I saw 03/3012 that I accidently lost myself in the archives.

  9. Carol, Mike Baker was on FNC earlier today as well. I don’t think he’s been an FNC contributor for a while, if ever. I’ve seen him on CNN and MSNBC a number of times over the last year at least.

  10. ^ I’ve seen Mike Baker on CNN and, I think, NBC.

  11. Thanks, Josh and Al.

  12. If this was really 3/30 I would invest everthing I have in Barns & Noble.

  13. I’m really enjoying this rightwing blog.

  14. Would you feel better of ProgLib made an appearance?

  15. lonestar77 Says:

    Well, this blog is too adult for most left-wingers. It’s friendly. That’s why most of your like-minded thinkers find it uninteresting. 🙂

  16. I’d feel better if a day at a cable news blog didn’t start with some idiocy about how the President shouldn’t attend the WHCD. You people will complain about ANYTHING.

  17. lonestar77 Says:

    The “Lean Forward” ads are pretty indistinguishable from your typical DNC or Obama ad as it is. Now, with the POTUS rolling out the “Forward” slogan, they become even more indistinguishable. The question is, is there a single person at NBC that give a shiite?

    Speaking of, did you see that tie he was wearing? Awful! And, I think he missed a spot in the morning shave. And, he should have ridden a bike to the dinner to save gas and the earth and the baby polar bears.

    Kidding aside, I brought it back to cable news with my previous post. And, it’s a serious one. Feel free to address it, Joe.

  19. A liberal network sounds similar to a liberal President? Fascinating.

  20. lonestar77 Says:

    Not what I meant. I meant there ads would seem similar to official campaign ads. Especially as election season heats up and people who don’t normally tune in, tune in.

  21. lonestar77 Says:


  22. I don’t understand the problem. MSNBC has been running ads for many months addressing national issues from a liberal perspective. A Democratic Presidential campaign does the same thing.

  23. erich500 Says:

    “Forward” huh? I guess “Spam” was taken? “Reply”?

    Spam is more like it since they really haven’t had a new idea in about two years.

    Gosh, both our parties are in bad shape right now. The Republicans are in the thralls of radicals and the Democrats are in the thralls of reactionaries.

    One party wants to go way too far and the other still thinks it’s the Sixties and that we can just keep doing what we’ve been doing for decades.

  24. imnotblue Says:

    I thought they weren’t a Liberal Network, because of their hard-news programming (which is allegedly unbaised) during the day. Wasn’t that what we heard last week re: O’Reilly/Mitchell.

    Oh what changes in a week.

  25. Oh for God’s sake, they have liberal opinion hosts and you know that. Those people are doing liberal opinion ads which sound similar to a campaign ad because they broach the same subjects. Complain. ANYTHING.

  26. erich500 Says:

    “I thought they weren’t a Liberal Network.”

    Actually I thought the claim was Obama wasn’t a liberal, not that MSNBC wasn’t.

    He is a liberal but he’s also smart enough to know that he’s operating in a non-liberal friendly environment.

    I’m really disappointed in him since I did believe that he would bring a fresh look to government. I believe in government, I believe that it can make lives better. Conservatives recognize the importance of culture but liberals recognize that government can change a culture (of poverty, of ignorance, of despair). For the better. I like that view.

    But he seems to be more of a reactionary than a visionary. I can’t think of any new ideas he’s willing to offer up. He’s not willing to risk any political capital by showing any leadership.

    It’s all politics.

  27. imnotblue Says:

    Ah… so “Lean Firward” only applies to certain time periods on MSNBC’s schedule. Got it.

    For years we hear, “FOX is the mouthpiece for the GOP.” And now, when it’s show (yet again) hoe intertwined MSNBC is with the current White House, it’s no big deal for them to be the mouthpiece.

    Claim we whine all you want. Do whatever you think will cover your hypcorisy.

  28. Hehe..Blue said “hypocrisy” again. In other words..Monday.

  29. libertyandjustice Says:

    EPA top political appointed bureaucrat Al Armendariz has resigned. This is pretty big news because it’s a clear example of the administrations war and “crucify them” attitude toward business. Does anyone know if NBC bothered to report it? Or are they in full campaign mode (and cover up) for Obama?

  30. libertyandjustice Says:

    Forward Comrades! I think these recycled ideas/dogmas and slogans have been tried before with disastrous results!

  31. ^ Man, that is so many shades of stupid.

  32. Well, just pick one that matches your color.

  33. I’m looking forward to the Indy 500, ’cause, ya know, I’m a Marxist race fan.

  34. Don’t be hiding behind the pace car and don’t be obtuse. My point was Obama’s crew should have researched their choice as “forward” has quite a heritage as a slogan.

  35. Expect to see more of this and it will serve Obama for having the stupidity and total lack of class to have politicized the UBL killing. Let him eat dirt:

  36. savefarris Says:

    HOW DARE someone use a campaign slogan to dredge up uncomfortable associations to historical reprobates!!!

  37. On the one hand, Piers was kind of an ass. On the other, it was a tiny bit fun to watch Jonah tangle with someone who’s decidedly not from Fox. Having once been deposed, I imagine this is like having one sprung on you.

  38. lonestar77 Says:

    ^ Another example of the media taking a false narrative set up by the Obama machine and running with it by lying about Romney’s position.

  39. “The bin Laden raid was cheap?” ‘How cheap?’

    Jonah seemed stunned to be asked real questions, with actual followups. This isn’t Sean effin Hannity, you idiot.

  40. Would you feel better of ProgLib made an appearance?

    I miss you, too, Larry. I feel the love from you more than anyone else here, actually. Conservatives are all about love and respect, aren’t they?

    According to LS, you guys are always friendly, and we nasty liberals/progressives just hate everybody.

    Projection has always been a great quality for you on the right. It fits like a glove.

  41. imnotblue Says:

    Sorry, Joe. I’ll try to just call everyone who disagrees with me “idiots” and “morons,” blame my ignorance and poor behavior on anyone and everyone else, get irrationally upset when I’m mocked, whine and cry when nobody buys my bullsh*t.

    Then we can be bloggon’ buddies! Whatta ya say?

  42. lonestar77 Says:

    “how cheap?”
    It wasn’t hundreds of billions of dollars. He was explaining Romney’s point to Morgan. Unfortunately, Morgan was only interested in bumper sticker talk. Morgan sounded more like a party chairman than an interviewer. It was a ridiculous segment.

  43. lonestar77 Says:

    ” and we nasty liberals/progressives just hate everybody.”
    Finally. You get it. Anyway, I’d like to see more liberals on here. Speaking of, where’d Elle go? But, preferably, civil ones.

  44. So nice to see ProgLib again.

  45. What I get is that you’re ignorant if you actually take my sarcasm literally. I’ve never been mean or nasty to anyone here. I state my opinion and I debate, just like anyone else does.

    Larry, you love having me around here, don’t you? You obviously enjoy busting my chops when I’m not around, so maybe I shouldn’t disappear as much.

  46. Aww, lonestar, it’s so sweet that you missed me. You know I love ya, even if you are a misogynist little mook! *cheek-pinch*

    Sorry to be gone so long from this thread. Being the childish, human-hating, nasty liberal that I am, I was writing comments on another thread: celebrating the demise of CNBC ratings and doing my best to purge the corruptive influence of its former talents on CNN.


  47. I’d like to buy the world a Coke.

  48. Occupy Wall Street hopes to launch a spring awakening of its protest movement. Occupy called for “no work, no school, no shopping, no banking” throughout the country, as spokesman Mark Bray said the movement wants to show that the “99 percenters make things run in this country.”

    The irony is that these sad sacks represent 99% of this country about as much as pooping on police cars represents it.

  49. Grammie Says:

    When WILL we hear Nancy Pelosi giving hew new, improved “culture of corruption” speech to showcase the new “swamp” that is Washington corruption culture.

    Charlie Rangel scandals.
    William Jefferson to begin serving looong prison term for bribery and fraud.


    Top officials at GSA resign in disgrace.

    Fast & Furious points to incompetence, corruption & coverup in the DOJ.

    Top ICE officials, with high level security access and Diplomatic passports even, are guilty of embezzling millions.

    And the ever popular “boys will be boys” Secret Service scandals.

    I’m sure she’s just polishing it up a bit. She’ll speak up any day now.

  50. lonestar77 Says:

    “mook” is my new favorite word and I’ve only known it for a couple weeks now.

  51. Mook or moon?

  52. A few years ago on PBS’s Star Gazer, Jack Horkheimer was explaining that the huge moon we see on the horizon is an optical illusion and would measure the same if compared to when it’s higher in the sky. Then he turned his butt to the camera and bent down to look back from between his legs, explaining, “An even more fun way to prove this illusion is to bend over at the waist and watch the rising moon upside down between your legs. Because bingo! it will instantly look smaller than when you look at it right side up.”

    The old guy sure looked goofy talking out his moon like that. If only Harris Faulkner would… ne’rmind.

  53. Jack died two years ago at 72 from a respiratory disease that had plagued him since a youngster. His short segments were fun in that all the astronomy could be done with the unaided eye. “Keep looking up.”

  54. Guess we’ll see if the link works. It’s striking how much she looks the way she did in college, sans makeup.
