i'm a masochist

I watched Al Franken's cable-show last night. I'll admit that my belly was hurting and I wasn't in the best of moods, but I STILL thought, in MY humble opinion, that I've stepped in better dog-shit than that show. I'll give you a quick critique:

1) Al Franken is Booooring. He appears to be heavily dosed with thorazine when he's on coma camera.

2) What's with the headphones? Al resembles an overweight, overage wanna-be Mouseketeer in that get-up. Can't his show afford a decent behind-the-ear microphone?

3) If you want pure leftist cant, he's got plenty of that. He lets somebody talk while he himself nods out and then revives long enough to say, "So, what I'm hearing from you is that Bush is a moron."

4) I once saw a dog do the news on the original Ted Turner cable channel, when Bill Tush was program director. They fed the dog peanut butter and then did a voice-over of the news while the dog moved his mouth around. THAT was a lot more entertaining than Al Franken is today.

5) If Al Franken thinks he can compete with Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity or even that blathering idiot Michael Savage, he's more stupid that I already think he is. He's about as original as a fossilized fruitcake that's been sitting on mama's shelf since somebody gave it to her for Christmas five years ago. The guy is pathetic.

Of course, that's just MY humble opinion. George Soros may see something there that I don't.


This has nothing whatsoever to do with your post but goddam I loved Bill Tush. Very sophomoric humor, which is right up my alley.

Soros wants to buy our's just that he's "hired" a bunch of idiots to do it for him.

Thank the good Lord.

EVERTHING Bill Tush did was better than anything Franken has done.

You can see a few bits at - he has clips from 17 Update Early In The Morning and from The Bill Tush Show.

Damn he's funny. Why isn't he on TV?

Franken hit his peak on SNL and he wasn't funny then. You must have been nearly comatose yourself to sit through that crap. I'd have switched to the weather channel or maybe a test pattern. They still have those, don't they?

About as original as a fossilized fruitcake. Yup, that's getting ripped off.

Maybe the man just needs a suppository so he will not be so full of shit.

"Of course, that's just MY humble opinion. George Soros may see something there that I don't"

Hmmm.........Let's see. George Soros is a successful billionaire and you're an out of work hillbilly that spends all day blogging and drinking moonshine. It's a tough call, but I think I will have to go with George Soros' opinion of Al Franken.

I used to think he was funny, but now it's like seeing the guy that pumps out your septic tank working as a short order cook. A man's got to know his limitations.

I tune in to Air America occasionally for a good laugh. It's nothing but whining and hate Bush. I pity the people that this shit is aimed at.

IMHO, the earphones are there so he can look in the mirror and tell himself he's as good as Rush.

Well then George shouldn't quit his day job because Al can't even get ratings in liberal strongholds.

Considering what Soros did to make his money the far left should hate him.

But ohh yeah that's right...he's their sugardaddy.

One thing I notice about most Left-wingers; they actually don't give a shit if someone's rich or not, as long as they support an "Open Society" (eradicate border control), legalized hemp (so many people use the stuff that it's hard to believe that it IS illegal), "diversity" (racist hiring policies, sensitivity training), or "World Peace" (forcibly unite every nation under one authority which none of them are allowed to seceede from, and have the People's Armed Civil Protection Police confiscate everyone's guns.)

A whole lot of Republicans don't seem to have too much of a problem with these policies either, fucking neoconservative panderweasles. That's why I like Savage more than most of the other guys on Talk Radio: he's against liberalism, but he doesn't bend over like a goddamned 130-lb whiteboy in prison and let the GOP fill his ass full of their increasingly-progressive seed.

As shitty as Franken is, he's a fountain of talent compared to that other darling of Air America, Janaene Garafolo. That worthless twat can't even mouth the lefty screed coherantly.

Janeane Garafalo has bigger balls than you do anyday Gasmaggot and isn't afraid of telling it like it is. Try and debate her on the facts and she would make you look like the squirming little worm you really are.

'Cause Good Lord knows that BUYING a Dixie Chicks CD with your OWN money with the intent of breaking it in public to express your distaste for said music group is the EXACT same thing as vandalizing/destroying someone's business just because they're a certain race.

Please give us some *gasp* EXAMPLES (with links, maybe) of her winning a debate that was remotely related to facts. Some of us might think her more credible if you do this.

Al Frankin is a fucking joke. I read his book "Lying Liars" or some such moonbat title. He made a big deal of hiring a bunch of post grads from a prestigious liberal school to help him with his research. Apparently, he believes it takes a "village" to write a book. He was actually proud of this. He spends a lot of time trying to bash Ann Coulter, but the most egregious lie he could stick on her was calling endnotes footnotes.

Even PJ does better than that! And that's saying a lot!

Posted by: Ed on June 13, 2005 02:19 PM

Why Thank You ED. I take that as an endorsement for starting my own radio show on Air America........."Where the Left is Right and the Right is Wrong". Tune in for the truth sometime when you get sick of listening to the bullshit propaganda on the neocon networks.

You're welcome PJ!

Posted by: Ed on June 14, 2005 09:07 AM

Now I don't know much, but I DO know that you should watch out when someone says that they're a source of objective, unbiased truth: liars and propagandists of all stripes use taglines like that, even the non-mainstream ones.

It's called verbal camouflage.
