“I think it could have worked on an edgier network. Pasquale was great in the role. His features were more taught, sharper as his "evil alter." Even if the show goes nowhere I hope to see Pasquale in something else, soon.”
“I agree that there are individuals guilty of using the devestating events of 9/11 to promote their own agenda. It is shameful and disgusting, and I agree with Mr Krugman. Politicians waved the bloody shirt to achieve their ends. Thousands died on 9/11 and thousands more have died since. Americans refusing to allow mosques to be built, billions spent on invading a country that had nothing to do with the attacks, how the world now sees America--those who used that devastating tragedy to profit financially and politically are despicable, and in my opinion helped our enemies achieve certain victories. I have thought so for years. The man wrote a blog, an opinion. Don't tell me that in addition to no longer allowing freedom of religion we are no longer allowing freedom of speech either?”

“One of the best comments of the day; you get my vote for a de facto 'smart' badge, and one for 'insight' too!”

“Nicely said. And, yes, slowly but surely, we are losing our freedom of speech.
“If no politician can lead us back to the "good old days,"
and we need to get back to the "good old days,"
then is GB advocating anarchy?
should we overthrow the gov't so we can get back to the "good old days"?”
“I can only assume from their protests, that none of these "tea party" faithful will or do use Medicare, since it is a government run health care institution. I can't imagine that anyone would be so hypocritical as to march against health care reform, and then stop at the pharmacy on the way home to pick up their prescription at a significantly lowered price due to a government run program. Right?”

“Wrong? If u look at much of these signs and what some of them say, they don't know what they are protesting”
“McCain and Palin and their supporters will say they cannot be held responsible for actions of people like this troubled young woman. To me, that is like claiming, "Well, of course we implied he was a terrorist, and we implied the world would end if Obama was elected, but any one who BELIEVED us and acted accordingly, well obviously those are disturbed individuals, for whom we have no responsibilty."
If you keep yelling that the world will end if Obama is elected, what do you think individuals who are a few fries shy of a happy meal are going to do? The McCain/Palin campaign should be held to account for every act of violence perpetrated that was incited by their blind ambition to win at any cost.”
“Another outcome of the political race this year that we can thank McCain and Palin for, if not the Republican party in general--
If you don't think like I do, you are not only wrong, but a treasonous traitor who should die!!
People who cannot stop yelling about the second ammendment seem completely ignorant of any others. . .like the first one.
My father and grandfather served in the military, but not so that one group of Americans can scream and shout and push the rest of us into silence or agreement.
I hope at some point McCain and Palin see the damage they've inflicted on this country and that it weighs on them for the rest of their lives.”
“I was wondering when someone was going to point out that "Arab" and "Muslim" should not be used as insults.
We are still a democracy, and we still do prize freedom of religion. That means all religions. When you pander to the lowest common denominator, don't be surprised when what you get is ignorant, hate speech fueled by fear.
For everyone who is "afraid" of Barack Obama, he isn't Muslim, but SO WHAT IF HE WAS? I'm agnostic, but in the last 2 weeks I've been so PO'd about this issue, I've considered converting. To all you knee-jerk, Hannity listening, Fox "News" watching, conservatives out there, Pull your heads out of your posterior regions, folks, and try to represent yourselves a little better than you have so far.”
Gays? People with disability? War vets?...who's next?
Arab Americans you might know:
Hoda Kotb is a correspondent for NBC’s “Dateline” and Jim Avila, who is of Lebanese and Mexican descent, is a national correspondent for NBC News.
Green party presidential candidate Ralph Nader and the founder of MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) Candy Lightner.
Jacques Nasser was formerly the president and CEO of Ford Motor Company.
The chairman of the board of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is Samir G. Gibara.
“Hey--McCain is Senator of Arizona, right? And there are convicted criminals that are housed in prisons in the state of Arizona, right? So, using the GOP's logic. . .
John McCain supports criminals because there are criminals that live in his state!
This character stuff is great. You don't even have to ask questions like, what is the character of a man who would cheat on his wife, or the character of a rabid conservative hate-monger who has a pregnant teenage daughter. And if anyone tries to point out the truth I'll just call them comunist dogs in pay of my opponent. Perfect!”
“So, she's a in beauty pagents and went to college as a communications major, and let's not forget the "hockey mom" credentials--when did she get her doctorate in energy? If she's America's leading authority on energy, she must be s scientist, right? Studied energy for years, has the credentials to prove it?
I'm just waiting for the nation's lesser energy minds to consult with Gov. Palin, I want to hear the discussion or read the transcript.”
“Hannity is delusional if he thinks of himself as a journalist. His "reporting" is at best biased and at worst, it is hate speech. Please, America, PLEASE--find out the truth for yourselves. Spend 30 minutes and read 5 different sources on the topics that are most important to you. Don't believe the candidates, believe the facts.
If the majority of those who vote choose to go down the road of arrogant, hate-filled, uninformed propaganda, then we are truly damned. America will have fallen too far to rise again as the greatest nation on earth.”
“The good news: Sarah can finally answer the question, "what do you read?"
The bad news, she reads coffee cups.
The worse news, She still has some accuracy issues if there is more than 2 lines of text.
BTW, Madeleine Albright is an amazing woman who has spent years serving this country and should be afforded the same respect one would give to one of our troops. Palin could do worse than to try to follow Ms. Albright's example. Shame on you for not immediately stopping the negative comments and asking the crowd to show some respect.”
“I thought it was just me. Why won't he hold his baby? You see the youngest daughter holding the baby (and giving him the old spit shine), and the oldest daughter holding the baby. Sarah wobbles down the steps onto the tarmac in heels and holding the baby. Why isn't Todd ever holding the baby?”
“Have we ever seen Todd "the First Dude" Palin holding his baby? I've seen the youngest daughter holding and "grooming" the baby, and I've seen the oldest daughter holding the baby. Even Sarah Palin holds the child, but not Todd. I'm just curious, because it seems odd.”
“I've noticed that every time Sarah Palin is cited in her capacity as Governor of Alaska, her husband Todd is referenced as well. I wondered, is he a staff member, or her assistant? What is his official capacity in the government of Alaska? None. So why is he constantly referred to, and why is he in the middle of these state emails going back and forth between Sarah's team? Here are two links that answered most of my questions and add one more issue to concern the public if McCain/Palin manages to win the election in November. http://community.adn.com/node/127769 (article from Anchorage Daily News entitled Todd Palin's Role) http://www.andrewhalcro.com/shadow_governor (This link is listed in the previous article)”
