  • WTF did he say?????

    Are you guys keeping up with the Sotomayor hearing?

    I used to think Al Franken was a sharp cookie watching him on politically incorrect. I think I was Californ I A medicine at the time.

    No wonder the lady needs to sit there patiently. It takes two minutes for Al Franken to reminisce about Perry Mason. He does realize it was just a TV show...right?

      I think he thought he was back on SNL. He wasn't very funny then either.

          This is all a dog and pony show interrupted by the death of Michael Jackson. I can't recall when smart people ran for public office? I suppose the smart folks know it's futile.

          I watch the various news stations and listen to their experts...you know, PHD's in economics etc. and they tell a completely different story..so how come they can't go to Washington and tell the so called powers to be the real truth?..I guess they are not allowed on the sacred ground....

          Us white guys are simply screwed with the political correctness and reverse discrimination...
          for example.."they" have miss black USA, the TV channel BET, Black awareness month,
          NAACP, Al sharpten and Jessie Jackson!!!!! etc etc

          Can you imagine if we had White appreciation month, miss white USA, etc???

          They can keep sharpten and Jackson..they in their own rights are the biggest racists

          My "white" wife was born in South Africa! She is an American Citizen...is she an African American? NO she's simply an American Citizen. A black born in Detroit MI in 1978 ....is he an "African American"???? NO he's an American Citizen who happens to have black skin!

          Enough milking of the slavery crap it's over, get over it, let's move on...or are we going to give New Orleans back to the French?????? Many cultures have been messed up over the decades....but they move on and stop living in the past. ..Now I'm not saying forget your own culture, I'm saying don't rub it in others faces. Many Italians find the god-father awful...others did not...but there are no riots, they moved on etc etc

          A Korean that came from Korea and has become an American citizen..is he a Korean American? NO he's simply an American citizen, and very proud of it.

          Let's put things back into some sort of reasonable order please.....If you can't reach the top shelf "you are short" not vertically challenged! On the other hand if you are short and you can reach the top shelf, You're arms are way too long and you're a freak!

            I think over the years in an effort to have some representation, participation, pride or whatever you can call it, these different things came into existence. The end result in my opinion have been a further division of America. My parents were of Italian decent, I consider myself American. This allegiance to another country, culture weakens us as Americans. The reverse discrimination under EEOC may have been intended to undo some of the injustice of the past and there was plenty (unless you are living in a dream world), but justice was set aside to accomplish these goals. People who worked hard and honestly were punished because of their Race, how can any of this make sense or be made right? I got passed over to become a Union apprentice in both the Electrical and Plumbing trades back in the early seventies in NY, the Newspapers said their were racial quotas to be met. Thirty years later and we are still trying to achieve some kind of equality, why? It's too bad for us now that prior generations were racist in hiring, and promoting because we would not have Black Americans crying foul if there was none. Racism exists but I guess unless you live it first hand it's hard to believe or accept. I've seen and heard enough stories of "driving while Black" to know it happened/happens and it does not make for better racial harmony. How do we get ignorant people on both sides of this issue to smarten up and let go of the hate and ignorance? How do we come together as Americans first ?

                You're right Cactus, it is a dog and pony show here. I had to work across the street from the Hart Senate Office building today where the hearings are being held. The place was swarming with local and national news teams interviewing passerbys on the street. It had a circus atmosphere feel to it.

                Good news though....

                  When I was a kid I watched Gilligans Island. And every week it seemed they would be trying to get off the Island. Something would go wrong, and the Skipper would hit Gilligan with his hat.

                  Will there be other plumbers at the Roundup that watched Gilligans Island?

                  I love it when people talk out of their mind and think they really have something to say. Reminds me of myself.

                    Give the man a break! He was just trying to place her at ease. Being grilled by these pompous A##es is no picnic.

                    By the way, Mr. Franken was accepted into Harvard University prior to the "political correctness" days AND GRADUATED.

                    How many of the Fox newscasters graduated from Harvard (or Yale or MIT or Stanford)?

                      I did not watch the video clip but I'm willing to accept that in addition to being an accomplished writer/comedian, Mr. Franken is a learned man. My only problem with educated men and women is, they sometimes function best in their area of expertise and not in most other facets of life. We have had some very well educated politicians and legislators at the helm for years and yet here we are economy tanking and instead of meaningful action to address this situation, we are preoccupied with healthcare reform and energy issues. There are no doubt serious problems worthy of our attention, but how can we expect the redistribution of our own wealth to solve any of these problems when our economy is in such trouble? Unless Mr. Franken, along with President Obama and the rest of our legislators have a swift effective plan to stop the outward flow of American dollars to the rest of the world and employ Americans, any other conversation is foolhearty. Abortion and reverse discrimination issues are worthy of our scrutiny and debate as well, but we need to save a sinking ship first.

                        So Did George W Bush What's that say about a Harvard education?

                        Al Franken is a left wing socialist, not a liberal, not a democrat a socialist. Al Franken will be a one term congressman that got lucky and rode into office on the wave of anti Bush sentiment.
