The Rev Al Hour



MSNBC/Comcast is apparently thinking of giving racial rabble-rouser Al Sharpton his own cable show.

In his classic film, "Network," screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky imagined a world where such people would be brought into your home by cynical TV executives.

Wonder if negotiations with Rev Al resembled those for the "Mao Tse Tung Hour."

(Warning: Bad words galore.)

Gil - I've watched it. What are they thinking? Horrible show. And talk about butchering the English language!

Only in America!!!

MSNBC needed at least one African American on their payroll to counter all the claims they have been accused of.

Danny - That being the case, I think they should have gone with Lewis Black.

Who???? I don't know him, so name recognition isn't there, Bob.

Why not Juan Williams?

"Jerry Falwell said that the reason that September 11th happened, the reason that God allowed it to happen, was because of certain people in our country. People like, and I'm quoting, 'the pagans,' which is a motorcycle group. Feminists; he brought up feminists. [...] And I couldn't believe it, he said that God had actually talked to him and said, these were the people. That was the reason. It was those people, and that was the reason God allowed this to happen. And I thought, 'That's odd.' Because God had called me twelve hours before, and He said the reason He was upset was because of people like Jerry Falwell."

"Behind me, I heard a young woman of 25 say, "If it weren’t for my horse, I wouldn’t have spent that year in college." Now, I'm gonna repeat that, because it bears repeating. "If it weren't for my horse..." as in, giddyup, giddyup, let's go — "I wouldn't have spent that year in college," which is a degree-granting institution. Don't think about that too long, or BLOOD will shoot out your NOSE!"

OMG... Anon has to agree with Bob? What is this world coming to? Next thing we know, Bob will update his post's picture to show The Great One to the right of Alfred E... When that happens, Anon will retire, not to mention that hell will freeze over too...
