Enjoy some good one-liners and bits from your favorite late-night comedians.
David Letterman: "You know when you have a movie like that about a guy who is alive, you wonder if they took some liberties with the truth. In one scene, I don't know if this is accurate or not, President Bush is seen actually reading a national security memo. And I thought, now, is that -- I don't know."
Conan O'Brien: "Sarah Palin remains very popular." In "fact, this week in Tennessee, a man named his newborn baby after Sarah Palin. Yeah," he decided to do so "after he asked" the baby "to name three countries, and it just stared blankly into space."
First of all, I am not afraid to put my name on my comments. The fact of the matter is, the Republican party is not the same party that Abraham Lincoln helped to found. Since the 1870's, it has been the party of big business and big banking. The Bush administration has been one of the most corruption-riddled since warren G. Harding's, if not since Ulysses S. Grant's. That's what you get when you blindly elect two people whose fortunes were made in the oil business to the top two positions in the land. Obama was raised in small-town Kansas, and I think he's one hell of a lot more in touch with rural and middle-class America than oil aristrocats like W. Frankly, people who have summer homes in places like Kennebunkport(even the name sounds snooty) or Hyannis Port have no comprehension of the circumstances of the average working American. Obama's daddy didn't buy his(Barack's) way into a prestigious Ivy League school-he earned it. He also said both he and his wife "had a ton of student loans" when they finished college. They know what it's like to be in debt and to have to work your way out of it. It seems to me that people who make comments like those below are also the ones that make assertions that "Obama is a terrorist, because his name sounds like Osama". Or better yet, "Obama is a Muslim". Seems like the disciples of Imam Rush Limbaugh(if there was ever a fascist masquerading as a patriotic American, he is it)
and American Hezbollah(the self-proclaimed Party of God)need to get their heads out. Lest I be accused of being a "liberal puke, left wing Democrat", let me say that Gerald Ford shafted American farmers with his
September, 1975 grain embargo, and Jimmy Carter did the same with his December, 1979 grain embargo. Both parties have stuck it to agriculture for the sake of pre-election year posturing, so I am STAUNCHLY INDEPENDENT. I just get tired of the ignorance and arrogance of people who think they have the right to step on their neighbors to get more land becaus they are "God's right-wing Republicans". Well, I've got a message for all of you who have posters of Ann Colter on the insides of your closet doors: Don't urinate down my back and tell me "It's raining".
I'm with the three comments above. If Obama is the next president, farmers better be ready to SHARE their crops with no pay. Why isn't Obama sharing his wealth with McCain? You know, all the money for campaigning. If I keep reading the liberal kind of crap you have here, I'll have to close off this site. If, you presented BOTH sides, it would be different. Be more like Fox news.
Here ar five easy one word Jokes: Obama, Biden, Pellosi, ried and Dodd. the sad fact is the country ends up the butt of them! It is interesting to note that the Dem's have had to 'hide' Biden, Pellosi, Ried and Dodd because of the mouth's. Get ready for nationalized, coop farming with some new name. at least the bailout plan has share ownership and the intent for the govenment to get back out of it. Joe the Plummer was dead on and look how he has been treated for asking a question. Is is hard to figure out why Obama refuses to do Town Hall meeting and take direct citizens questions with no 'scripted' answers to fall back on.
