What is the topic?
Don’t forget to pimp your blog for better trolls.
March 20th, 20092:04 pm
Golly, I’m gonna make popcorn and ask all the O of O to come out and support ya’.
March 20th, 20092:13 pm
Hey, I’m with you Jay. It’s much harder to speak spontaneously than to take the time to write your thoughts …… good luck.
But hey, ask for “Mr. Teleprompter” !!!

Fish out of water!? You mean fish in school don’t you!!??
March 20th, 20092:16 pm
An hour on O’Rielly, now that would have Jay gasping like a fish out of water…

Fear the turtie.
Now Jay.., you know we’re all expecting you to live up to that glammerous shot you have at the top of this blog. And tell Cynthia the same thing, I see she still has that old shot up..
March 20th, 20092:22 pm
Good luck. Keep fighting the good fight.
March 20th, 20092:23 pm
Mrs. G, sounds good!
March 20th, 20092:28 pm
I guess, in as much as it is TV and a possible career option, it’s a big deal for you. But it’s CNN. They are on the same team that you are. They want you to look like you are an honest expert.
March 20th, 20092:33 pm
Joey: are there team jersies?

j/k good luck

More than half of the monitored bird species that live on prairies have experienced population losses. These birds, such as the lesser prairie chicken, are threatened by farmers converting grasslands into corn fields to meet demand for biofuels.
Liberals have bright ideas, some poor animal gets slaughtered.
March 20th, 20093:09 pm
Just tuned into CNN, Jay looks a little scared and his mike isn’t working…can barely hear him and can hear Shirley Franklin and the economist (didn’t catch his name) just fine.
March 20th, 20093:11 pm
Feel free to mention me — repeatedly. Taxpayer.
March 20th, 20093:13 pm
Jay to the rescue.
CNN’s March Ratings So Far: More Lamb than Lion
More evidence that CNN is going to have to find a new strategy fast or risk becoming a cable news also-ran: In the month of March so far, the Time Warner-owned network has come in fourth place in prime time among adults 25 to 54, the key demographic for advertisers, more often than not.
But now, at week 11, we’re face-to-face with the reality, the man can’t talk worth a damn.
You can see the fundamental mistake he’s making. Having been so successfully elected, he’s acting like people actually want to hear what he thinks. He’s the great earnest bore at the dinner party. Instead of singing for his supper, he’s just talking—and going on at length. The real job of making people part of the story you’re telling, of having them hang on your every word, of getting the tone and detail right, the hard job of holding a conversation, he ain’t doing.-Vanity Fair
If you’ve lost Vanity Fair, you’ve lost the American, uh, pinko.
March 20th, 20093:14 pm
He answered one question but could not hear him.
March 20th, 20093:17 pm
Jay, did they turn off your mic.
March 20th, 20093:20 pm
Jay looks good
March 20th, 20093:22 pm
Rush talking about McCarthism ironic. Good one.
March 20th, 20093:38 pm
Good show with good info on how our government is broken.
Who will fix it?
Not the corrupt politicians.
Looks like this is a hip hip hooray for Obama with the audience of Morehouse, Spelman and Clark Atlanta students. It might just be me but I doubt there are going to be any folks in that audience that don’t/won’t support just about everything that Obama says and stands for.
March 20th, 20093:40 pm
Looks like this is a bash Bush by Jay…seems his answer about giving out the names of the execs who got the bonuses is a little different than what he posted…oh wait I don’t think he even answered it.
March 20th, 20093:41 pm
PETA takes on Congress, the Agribusiness Lobby, MoveOn and Spkr Pelosi! this is gonna be fun!
Now to go check my DVR -
March 20th, 20093:46 pm
HEADLINE: “FBI planting spies in U.S. mosques, Muslim groups say …”
March 20th, 20093:49 pm
HEADLINE: “Special Olympics asks Obama to consider hiring athlete …”
This incident is going to dog you for quite awhile. Learn from this. Listen to your staff and stay on “Mr. Teleprompter”.
March 20th, 20093:51 pm
In response to why the bill wasn’t read through giving the AIG execs bonuses, in part Jay says that the treasury department is running with not a lot of people because most of them have not been confirmed by the senate yet….have they even nominated “most of them”?

IT’S A START:
GOP TAKES LEAD IN GENERIC BALLOT …
By Dick Morris 03.18.2009
“The latest Rasmussen poll shows a Republican lead in the generic congressional ballot for the first time since at least April of 2007. These surveys, conducted weekly, have consistently shown a strong Democratic lead. Now the Dems have lost their lead thanks to the socialist policies of their misguided president.
To Republicans who wonder if America has a future, there is a message: We are a democracy, and in 2010, we can turn this mess around!”
March 20th, 20094:03 pm
still grasping at oxygen, huh Corporal?
March 20th, 20094:07 pm
That’s the attitude, Corporal. Now, get out there and get Rush to run for office. Or, Palin. Or, Jindal. You have so many good choices. Go for it.
March 20th, 20094:11 pm
This was the first time I’ve ever watched this show. I though Jay carried himself rather well as did the Professor. The show as a whole I thought wasn’t very good, Sanchez in particular. He reminded me of Neal Boortz when he cut that young man off who was trying to answer a question. I don’t know what he was going to say or whether or not I would have agreed but I would have liked to hear it. The show also jumped topics enough to give you vertigo. So you did fine Jay but I wouldn’t watch this particular show again.
March 20th, 20094:19 pm
I glanced at your post and thought for a moment you had mentioned SPIKE PELOSI. Naw, just spkr, but I kinda like Spike better. Spike Pelosi. Has a nice ring to it.
So Bookman made it to Big Time TV. I haven’t turned on the TV Is it the Safari Show for Studious Simians? The Omnibus Oracle for Obama?
Well, just guessing but Bookman does go for a little “monkey business” and he is overboard for Obama. Congrats, Bookman. First a blog and then the big time. What next? SIR Bookman??
March 20th, 20094:28 pm
Good job Jay, I listened to the broadcast so I didn’t get to “see” you, but Rick Sanchez is always a good show.
You are right about the topic surfing, but that’s why I like Sanchez’ show. For those of us with ADD, it’s a good thing!
March 20th, 20094:41 pm
Every day the same people climb on their pity pedestals and perpetuate the same poop commercial talk radio has defecated for the last three decades–OH MY GOD I cannot BELIEVE what THEY are doing to US now! Same thing every day, complete with web addresses (cherry picked) that support the same claim “us good, them bad.”
Countless dollars and countless man-hours expended to create an instant communication tool and we cannot evolove beyond the
school yard retorts.

You sound unhappy enough to move out of the country. Let’s see what country would be conservative enough for you? Maybe Afganistan. Join up with the Taliban and be a part of a fundamentalist, traditional culture where nothing liberal ever happens. You’d fit right in.
March 20th, 20094:48 pm
I don’t have the energy to be ADD.
March 20th, 20094:49 pm
I missed it! Did Jay do any retard jokes? Or is that only presidential material?
March 20th, 20095:34 pm
Complain to Rasmussen. I didn’t take the poll.
Nah, we’ll probably just pick some senator who has only been one for 142 days or so.
