• AdLib : Sleep well!

  • SallyT : Nite nite!

  • SallyT : It’s the pagan in me!

  • AdLib : Thanks Sally, you too!

  • AdLib : Sally – Aw, homework on Easter Weekend! You’re strict!

  • SallyT : Have a wonderful holiday in any way you choose to celebrate it!

  • SallyT : You now have a homework assignment.

  • SallyT : I was just typing the same thing!

  • AdLib : Sally, it’s you and me again closing the bar. Cheers! Have a wonderful Easter, hope the Easter Bunny leaves you lots of fun stuff! See you here for Vox Populi next week!

  • SallyT : Murph, you have a nice weekend with or without the bunny,

  • SallyT : Sounds good AdLib.

  • AdLib : Very cool Murph! Have a great Easter weekend and cheers for all the good work you do!

  • AdLib : Sally – You’ve given me an idea for another article, should we be taking the bait and actually argue what are phony and transparent “complaints” by the GOP that are solely meant to suck up MSM time? Their dishonest reasons for opposing everything from the ACA to The Volt to killing Bin Laden are so plainly phony and just about always finding a reason to attack Obama. Shouldn’t we be attacking the GOP for their dishonesty when they launch one BS complaint after another instead of arguing the BS complaint?

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Well…going to call it a night….though I am a Christian Humanist, I associate with a church and am one of those who helps out with all of the Holy Week Services….seem s to move folks in a good way….an adult experience of faith challenging us to deal with tough issues…and that is good.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AdLIb..agee re. KO’s temper tantrum and his expecting 24 character gold in a gold plate operation. As to Jennifer G.- give her some more of your time. She did not win me over immediately but has in the long run. She is a real life politician who has a pretty solid record….I think she is the only one on a cable news show (I do not count Spizer or Scarborough).

  • SallyT : She is getting more relaxed in front of the camera and I think she is coming along. She is certainly more pleasant than Cenk but he is more for the younger viewers.

  • AdLib : I don’t feel as strongly about Granholm, I’ve seen her in the past be quite the corporate-protec tive politician and have reservations about her but that’s beside the point. In show business, charisma is important as is inspiration. I haven’t seen a lot of her show, it was good but I don’t know that she grows much bigger than she is. She isn’t a breakout star though and that’s what Current needs. I will send them my agent’s phone number or they can reach me at Adlib Broadcasting Empire.

  • SallyT : To hell with all those jobs and rural America is the Repugs attitude. Can’t anyone see and hear that?

  • SallyT : Also, why isn’t there more about the US Postal Service! They have gotten the shaft by the Repugs!

  • SallyT : I really think that is something that should be talked about more in the campaign, that the Repugs were against the Volt and an American Company making it!

  • AdLib : Murph – The black background was the act of a temperamental brat. I don’t like brats whether they’re Romney or KO. You’re getting paid millions and you have a fledgling operation to grow into a powerhouse. You make compromises and work towards growth. KO acted like Julia Roberts on a $3 million movie, expecting all the private trailers and entourage to be paid for…if you can’t live within the budget of an indie channel, don’t go there.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sally…I think Granholm is outstanding. I watch her every night.

  • SallyT : And, she drives a Volt and loves it! Talks about it all the time.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib…Granholm is the one breakout possibility. She has a unique background…sta te legislator, municipal leader, governor, attorney, with a really good stage presence and a pleasant demeanor. Her show is one I choose to watch every night.

  • SallyT : I do like Jennifer and the War Room

  • MurphTheSurf3 : OK….it sounds like we are all on the same KO page…Sad….

  • AdLib : The lineup at Current is…pardon the phrase…conserv ative. The hosts are okay but there are no potential breakouts for them, just solid workhorses. I think you need a better business plan, to be more innovative and not just recycle through many cast-offs from CNN and MSNBC. This could be part of what caused some friction, the ambition is missing at the top and they are charting a safe course as a small concern.

  • SallyT : I only liked about the first 2 mos of KO on Current and then I stopped watching and stayed with ED on MSNBC.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib…you and I are of the same mind with this. I too fought for his quick return to Countdown MSNBC and was willing to give him a chance at Countdown Current, but I hear disturbing things from the start regarding a prima donna approach. Even his dark hole background was a sign….he could not get along with the production people so he said he wanted no staging at all…thus the dark womb look….weird… .

  • SallyT : See you later, Bito!

  • AdLib : That’s messed up Bito! Sorry about that! Have a great weekend!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : That was a quick but useful visit Bito…thanks

  • AdLib : It does piss me off a bit, I was a very vocal supporter of KO’s when he was fired from MSNBC after Comcast bought them out. Now, he has proven to me that he wasn’t worthy of my support, in fact, I stopped watching him a while ago after he started attacking a pragprog colleague of ours, Deaniac.

  • bito : «link» My “puter is crashing, G’night

  • SallyT : And think what he could have done with 2 mins!

  • MurphTheSurf3 : AdLib….yes, I see KO the way you do. Read through the suit today. The plantiffs are Keith Olbermann and the Olbermann Broadcasting Empire….FLASHI NG EGOMANIA….Curr ent has promise. I love Granholm. I cannot stand Cenk. Bill Press is good. Spitzer grates on my nerves BUT he really knows what he is talking about so I might be able to develop a taste for is style…

  • bito : Obama campaign video exposes seven Mitt Romney lies in 84 seconds

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Hi Bito!

  • AdLib : Hey Bito! Thanks, good ad!

  • SallyT : Oh, didn’t know that Murph.

  • AdLib : Murph – Got tied up today but was going to write a post on Olbermann. I think he has jumped the shark now, especially with suing Current TV. Not saying that Current didn’t operate bureaucratically and inefficiently but trying to essentially destroy the one independent Progressive outlet is the act of an egotistical creep. He got millions already, he should have just walked away. Now, wo in their right mind would hire him and risk going through this all over again. I see GBTV being the model for his future.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sally…the two morning programs are C Span like….radio shows with cameras in the studio….zero production values….

  • bito : «link»

  • SallyT : AdLib they sure wouldn’t believe in history if they went with Jeb Bush!!!!

  • SallyT : I don’t think it is the end of Current TV. They have added two new shows to the morning line up.

  • SallyT : He would still have time.

  • AdLib : Sally – Good point but remember, the GOP doesn’t believe in science or history. BTW, Christie is 50.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Ad Lib…let me throw something out here as we seem to be running down….any thoughts on the Olbermann situation this week and on Current TV in general.

  • SallyT : Christie can’t be missed in a crowd. How old is he?

  • AdLib : Santorum will run in 2016, either Ron Paul or Rand Paul, Jeb Bush, maybe Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan might…could be a tough field for any one of them to stand out…though Christie just has to stand and he will stand out.

  • SallyT : Goodnight, Chris and rest well.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Sally T….great point. No one should run as VP unless he/she is very sure that they will win. Not a good bet.

  • MurphTheSurf3 : Take care….Chris… .come back soon…and stir up hornet’s nests.

  • SallyT : AdLib, no VP on the losing ticket has ever been elected President.

  • AdLib : Chris – Back at ya! Have a great weekend and a great Easter!

  • ChrisR266 : To rest of y’all, goodnight!

  • ChrisR266 : ON that all, we agree, Ad Lib. Golden slumbers to you, and know I value your conversation.

  • AdLib : Sally – Think of it this way, in 2016, Christie would have to outshine Jeb Bush and a whole army of established Repubs who were too scared to rn against Obama this year. How does he start off as the favorite over Jeb? Being VP could be an answer.

  • SallyT : And, regardless of the mess ups that Joe has now and then, Biden is no dummy! He will be tough in a debate.
