1) Man, oh, man, is that Sean Hannity dude ever predictable? I'm telling you here, folks, as soon as President Obama and former President Clinton stepped up to that podium together, I knew it, I KNEW for a fact that Hannity would try and make some hay about it; that the President was being rescued by Mr. Bill Clinton, yada-yada. And, yes, me-buckos, it really leads me to ask out loud: WHY do we even need to watch it any more. I mean, it's not like it's "The Wizard of Oz" or anything/wears well with repeated viewings.............2) If you had to give Bill O'Reilly credit for something, it would probably have to be for the fact that all of the profits for that merchandising of his go to charity (a la Paul Newman). But, still, STILL, I still don't think that I'd ever be willing to go anywhere wearing a "the spin stops here" cap or a "please don't taze me, bro" t-shirt....You know what I'm saying here, right?............3) Could it possibly be, folks - a rift of some sorts over at MSNBC? That's how it certainly seems to this blogger at least. On the one hand, you have Chris Matthews and Lawrence O'Donnell seemingly supporting President Obama's tax-cut compromise. On the other, you have Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann, and Ed Schultz (the latter two, vociferously so) opposing it. I mean, clearly, they all have separate shows and all and so, no, we really haven't seen any sparks a flying yet. The green-room/hallways, though - too bad there aren't any cameras there.............4) Speaking of Rachel Maddow, I've been getting a total laugh-attack over this most recent commercial of hers. On it, folks, she goes off spouting about the importance of "looking for all of the disparate facts", putting them all together yada-yada. Yeah, huh? I think what she REALLY meant to say was "looking for all of the facts that support my ideology and ignoring the rest."...Just a hunch, I'm saying.
