“I don't know where he came from but they should cancel his show immediately. It's disgraceful to have him on a major broadcasting station, disseminating trash. The real problem is Rupert Murdock who hires these bozos. He is an Australian who took out U.S. citizenship so he could buy up everything (Fox & NY Post) and spread this kind of garbage to our political system? The FCC should pay him a visit. This isn't freedom of speech; it's racism and lunacy, and the ratings are going up even though sponsors are pulling out? What does this say about our country?. That should be against the law; it's inciting racism and hatred. As long as there are people willing to pay these bozos money for this kind of trash, it will flourish.”
“She's good to look at, but listen to what comes out of her mouth. The latest being "death panels." She has joined Hannity, Beck, O'Reilly, Coulter and Lumbaugh in disseminating lies, innuendos and racist comments (dog whistle tactics). During the campaign trail, she whipped up crowds to yell death threats to Obama. She did nothing to stop it.
"She has work to do?" She quit a real job in Alaska to hop aboard the gravy train, writing a book, and taking huge fees to whip up the right-wing of the Republican party. What McCain did was open Pandora's Box.”
“Excellent article by Seth Pendleton; it needed to be said. Why doesn't McCain take the mike and talk down these Repugnants of the party, especially Rupert Murdock's vicious gang of racists? I believe in Freedom of Speech but Fox crosses the line into defamation of character. McCain is not going to run again, so what has he got to lose? At least there would be one person in the Republican party with integrity. Who among them cares about the people of our country? Stand up and be counted.”

“Have you guys looked in the mirror lately? Remember, you guys voted against the 'integrity' guy and voted for 'change' guy. As much as Republicans didn't like McCain that much, they really dislike Obama, who is proving to be our first affirmative action president.”
“Indy44 - Sorry, this is not a joke, not satire, not entertainment. When he hopes that the president will fail, he brings the country down with him. This is tantamount to treason, and in any other country he would be taken out of his bed in the middle of the night, shot and left in the gutter as an example to others t hat peddle hatred.
He's lucky he lives in a country that has freedom of speech, but it's depressing that he even has an audience out there.”
“Just by that statement you show that you are intelligent and have a brain. Follow your instincts, not your party. They are wrong, very wrong. It's time for Republicans to move toward the center and when they do, then and only then, you should follow them.”
“Yes, the "idiots" are still running the store. They just voted down giving a bridge loan to the auto industry so they don't go belly up by the end of December. Republicans are determined to lob grenades to the very end. Please president Bush, this is your chance to salvage your record and show your party you care more about the country than certain mean Senators in your party. If the Big 3 go belly up, the domino effect will throw us into a deep Depression.”
“Yes, and there was hair in the black cap with the root attached that was his; and fibers from the murder scene in the white bronco, and the pictures of him in the Bruno Magli shoes that made imprints at the murder scene, and the Akita dog that had been O.J. and Nicole's that backed up in fear when he saw O.J. He witnessed the crime because his paw prints were in Nicole's blood. And the glove that had been so saturated in blood that it shrank, so it didn't fit. And there was that wound on his middle finger, and the fact that he wasn't in the house when the limo driver rang the bell to take him to the airport.
And Kato who was too scared to admit that they snorted Crystal Meth in a parking lot before the murder. Marcia Clark made the mistake of thinkiing the black women on the jury would feel empathy for Nicole because of the abuse. They weren't angry at O.J. for beating her; they were angry at Nicole because she married one of their own.
Yeah, he's innocent all right. The police manufactured all of that evidence. If you watched the trial every day, and listened to the recap every night, you would know that he was guilty. For years, the L.A. police department has been tough on minorities; this was their chance to get back at them. So, they set him free.”

“Wow, the level of misinfomation in your statement is incredible, but even worse is the level of your ignorance.
So now Blood shinks gloves that are designed to keep liquids (Snow) off the skin, yeah right and we are supposed to believe that waiters return shades to people's homes, yeah ok buddy.
OJ had a pretty bad cut on his finger that and that should have explained how OJ's blood evidence was found on the glove, EXCEPT the glove didn't have a hole or cut where OJ"s finger was cut at.
Funny how you failed to mention that the Limo driver changed his statement after OJ became a suspect. Go research his orginal statement.
I could go on and on about the incosistencies in that case because I watched it. The first time in my life that I saw the Mainstream Media distort the truth. I will not ever trust anything I get from the Mainstream Media when it comes to trials, or Wars.
It is ok for you to believe OJ did it, but if you would have convicted him based on that trial, you must think we are stupid”

“You saw it like that, and I did not. I watched it every single day, without missing a minute of it. It was riveting tv! But I did not think, and still do no believe, that he was guilty. I thought that the jury came back with the correct verdict, if for no other reason than - there was doubt, and just too much of it. The prosecution lead us up to the "evidence", but could not prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that it proved he brutally murdered 2 people and walked away with a scratch on his knuckle and a drop of blood on a sock. That alone made/makes no sense to me.
But no matter what verdict people think he should have gotten, he should not have gotten what he did for this stupid caper where no shots were fired, nobody was hurt or killed, and the people involved wanted the matter dropped. The police in this country were determined to get him behind bars, and they succeeded this time. I hope he appeals and gets out because our justice system is just that, JUST US.”
“Can you tell me why people like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh are paid millions of dollars to spread hate and distorted facts? I blame the media for paying these people. I applaud Dr. Chopra for defending himself.”
bioluminescence on Dec 9, 2008 at 02:45:55
“Hannity and Limbaugh are necessary to the people who attend live WWF wrestling matches, go home, flip on FOX and cling to the belief they live in reality.”
“Vixter: Thanks for your comments; you are right on. The man isn't even in office and he's being vilified. C'mon America, we are made of better stuff I hope. Give the guy a chance. At least he's going to hit the ground running the first day of office. We finally have a man with a smart, logical brain in the presidency, one who reads, and listens. Now, that's change.
Even right up to the last, Bush is carrying out his policies of ruin, and in the interview with Charlie Gibson, is in total denial about the mess we are in, and his part in it. Go back to Texas, Mr. President. We will be repairing the damage done by your administration for years to come.”
Bonobo on Dec 4, 2008 at 16:11:03
“Being critical is not the same as vilifying someone. Also, Mr. Obama purports to believe in grassroots democracy, which implies that we SHOULD express our disagreements, rather than wait for him to reveal his secret plans. And, as below, now is the time to do so, not after.”
“I wholeheartedly agree. All this drama from the media is putting a pall on it. Hillary has proved over and over that she is intelligent, able and a team player. First of all, I trust Obama's political judgement. I'm sure she proved herself to his satisfaction on the campaign trail, and they've had numerous conversations about all of the things that he had concerns with. Let's be happy he is appointing the best and the brightest to lead us out of this mess. He has offered an olive branch to McCain, and Robert Gates is staying on for another year for continutiy! Wow. How about that everyone?
Maybe now we can look to ourselves for a bit of healing. It was a very bitter two years, even separating families. Let's say a prayer for our new president-elect and our country as we approach the holiday season. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.”
“I'm with you RedWilma. She's brilliant, a team player, and if she hadn't convinced Obama of that, she would never have received the "jewel in the crown" as Chris Matthews calls it. He is gathering strong, experienced people around him that will tell him what they think. That shows strength on his part--to even reach out to McCain after all the nasty things he said about him. I think he will hit the ground running, as he has to. Let's wish him luck; we need it.”
“My hat's off to you daddysboy for the good words; this sounds more like the America I remember. The last eight years, we have been polarized by the likes of Carl Rove, and the religious right of the Republican party. Media pundits like Russ Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Ann Coulter have spewed their hatred, and I think it's time for them to get a real job and start being part of the solution instead of exascerbating the problem.
As for Al Quaeda, they deal in shock and awe. Their remark about dogs and our soldiers show what despicable lengths they will go to to terrorize us. I think they are a little unsettled by our election of a black man who may have a more receptive image internationally. We have to persevere to beat the forces trying to do us in--inside as well as outside.”
JMBrodie on Nov 20, 2008 at 09:48:12
“It may not be the America I remember, but it certainly is the one I dreamed of... :-)”
“I know we celebrate freedom of speech but when I hear Sean Hannity and Russ Limbaugh spout off and blame Obama for the recession when he hasn't even taken office, I would like censorship on hatred. How can anyone pay these bozos money to spew their garbage? Don't they know there are people out there living "on the edge" and they could incite them to violence? I fear that all the time.
Freedom of speech is one thing but inciting to violence is unpatriotic and un-American.”

“The market definitely did not respond positively to Obama's election. How much is due to Obama or just anxiety over the economy in general, nobody knows.”
“I agree that Karma is slow but sure. He's just a lucky guy Obama isn't gunning for him because he would have been gone as quickly as you could snap your fingers. Sometimes adversaries become your best defenders when they are forgiven. Let's see what he does from now on.”
IowaCali on Nov 18, 2008 at 16:27:31
“I think you're right. It will be interesting to see Lieberman's act as an obsequious sycophant (boot-licker) to Obama.”
“Bravo! I see him working with Joe Biden, dishing out his intelligent, rational advice on the two wars and national security. He is a straight shooter, and a credit to his party. I like the fact that he is an individual and doesn't just go along with the herd. We need patriotic men of both parties to fix the last eight years; we're in trouble and need the best our country has to offer. He certainly fits the bill.”
“Absolutely. I look forward to Hagel being part of Obama's cabinet (and I'm a Democrat). He is so intelligent, a Vietnam vet, and a moderate Republican who is a credit to his party. He is right in saying that the party has lost its focus by moving right. Bring back the moderates (after Obama's eight years, of course)! LOL”
“Well, that pretty well sums up her appeal to the male population of our country. It is low cost entertainment but the trouble is that she takes herself seriously and wants to be in a position of power--putting a person of ambition with such low awareness of how ridiculous she is, is dangerous. That's why we must take her seriously and blow her out of the water. My advice is for her to go back to Alaska, take care of her special needs baby, pregnant daughter and finish her term as governor. And would someone please give her a copy of the Constituion and The Bill of Rights for Christmas.”

“Yeah, their second head talks louder than their first most times.”
“I worry that all of this hatred by the right wing will put Obama in jeopardy by some person who is mentally unbalanced. As one who lived through the JFK assassination, this country can not take another tragedy like that again. If the right wing of the Republican party were really patriotic, they would be behind president-elect Obama for the good of our country, especially now when we are in such trouble. I consider it unpatriotic to foment hatred and division. And that means you, Russ Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Fox News pundits. The election is over. Your guy lost. Get over it.”
tluger on Nov 16, 2008 at 23:21:47
“I have had a number of rightwing friends express support for Obama now that he has been elected. His post-election 70% approval ratings are heartening.”
lighthorseharry on Nov 15, 2008 at 06:39:33
“In yesterday's Orlando Sentinel was an article about how Obama's election was leading to a boom in gun business particularly assault rifles. They will continue to be the rabid right. They must be quarantined for all our safety.
“Yes, and it's also a minor miracle that George W. Bush wasn't shot by one of the millions of angry and disgruntled American citizens.
I sometimes wonder if this country is gearing up for another civil war. Goodness knows, the politicians are doing very, very little to avoid the constant clashes and hateful rivalries.”
“Yes, and she's proving to be just as dumb as she was on the Katie Couric interview. If Republicans choose her for their candidate in 2012, they will lose again. The moderate Republicans have to take back the party. That hokey, down home jive may work in Alaska but she's over her head in national politics. Did you notice that most people just talked about her looks and her clothes. Her voice and the poison that came out of her mouth didn't fool people for long. If she's serious, she should study hard, take a civics course, and get a copy of The Constitution and The Bill of Rights, but she's the type that thinks she can get by on her looks.”
“Well, she wouldn't survive the primary process. Remember the 8 candidates talking on issues until Hillary and Obama were left standing? Palin talking about issues, now that would be interesting. Someone give this woman a copy of The Constitution and the Bill of Rights for Christmas. It takes more than a beauty queen to run for president.
We all know that she's ridiculous but what is with all of those people that like her?”
“She's a novelty and I hope she stays that way. Let's see, the first offer after the campaign is to make an adult porn film. What else is in her future?... perhaps voice modulation, diction, a civics course, and someone please give her a copy of The U.S. Constitution and The Bill of Rights. She's under the impression that being VP is having a Co-presidency. She's scary because she doesn't know what she doesn't know.”
“Isn't that where she belongs--entertainment? Surely, not in politics which requires more than a pretty face. She's still attacking Obama? Someone tell her the campaign is over but, then again, she's already running for 2012. The media mentions the possibility, and she runs with it? Gosh, if only someone would give her a copy of The Constitution and The Bill of Rights for Christmas.
But it looks like she's more a candidate for a French Maid's outfit from Frederick's of Hollywood.”
“You are absolutely right, and that is what I was afraid of for election day. My faith in the American people has been somewhat restored (who knows what would have happened if we had not had this financial meltdown). Someone very wise said, "Democracy demands vigilance." This was never more true than in this election.”
“Michele Bachman and Sarah Palin are good looking women, and many people thought so from all the fauning a lot of men did over the latter. But, all I saw is what hateful, bigoted, spiteful lies came out of their mouths. It's deceiving to look at someone pretty and hear garbage coming out of their mouths. It takes a little while to sink in but then they become ugly. Thank goodness these two torpedoed themselves by their rhetoric.”
shanefish on Nov 7, 2008 at 10:47:38
“I was totally hot for both of them, until they started talking. They now make me ill.”
“I can't believe Bachman got re-elected and this speech about being happy that Obama has been elected is the epitomy of hypocrisy. That's a nice way to say that she's a liar; her performance on Chris Matthews' show showed just exactly how she thinks. She's a thowback to the 50s McCarthy Era when there was a Communist under every bed. Now, it's "UnAmerican." That includes our newly elected president and members of Congress. For shame.
When you see racism and bigotry up close it's pretty ugly.”
