This has to be an instant classic:
"If you don't stick to your values when they're being tested they're not values: they're hobbies"

It didn't take long for America's Al Jazeera to go bonkers on the new President. And that is on day 1 folks! (Link)

Good Times.

Hard to say since the rest of the sentence he was saying was cut off. I personally hope he fails..........to enact his program of social engineering.

See how that worked. I had more to say. I guess if you get your hard news from Comedy Central, half sentences are as fine. You can still make snotty comments about what you've been told you believe as though you knew what you were talking about.

Limbaugh's wet dream has been dealt with in couple of other threads, and the bottom line has stuck.

Having said that, did you really think this was "hard news"? It is sad really when a "show" on comedy central does a better job at providing a perspective, and of those involved with a channel that uses "news" in its name.

However, Fox News is used to it, while still maintaining its credibility. But then, can't really blame them. I know people who think WCW isn't staged. It was pretty nice seeing
Bill Moyers put Fox News producer (sent by Bill O'Reilly to ambush Moyers) in his place a few months ago. Fox News should adopt TNT's slogan: "We know drama". Or, perhaps, "we've the best drama queens" in business, and one drag queen (Ann Coulter).
