Sorry sparky - I think we're all just doing fine. After all, it's our guy who is going to be in the White House soon. If anything, I would think that rural whackjobs like yourself posting inane things like this is the ultimate sign of desperation and anger.

The same goes for the rest of his write up. Its all speculation. And the writer does not take into account the fact that SNL does its skits based on what they think is funny NOT what they think is politically advantageous for a particular party. The popularity of skits are based on what viewers think is funny, not on what the media wants to report about it. imho there is some weight to this argument as opposed to the writers argument, that the media only reports the SNL skits that are pro-dem (or liberal in some fashion)
I agree with what you wrote, I just wanted to respond to this paragraph in particular. Conservatives vehemently defend Fox News as unbiased when it comes to reporting, because the raging conservative voices on the station are not newscasters, but political commentators like Rush, Hannity, O'Reilly, Savage, etc. Fine. Then they turn around and point the finger at comedy shows like Daily Show or SNL as being examples of the liberal media. What? Do you not see the complete hypocrisy this represents? Political commentators on a news network are allowed to say whatever they want and it doesn't count, but comedy shows on regular networks (or a network called "Comedy Central") are "the media"? That doesn't fly with me, and it's exactly the type of intellectually retarded argument that makes all these claims of the "liberal media bias" seem ridiculous.

And for God's sake, SNL? Really? That's your liberal media bias? I mean, the show caters to a very young audience; high schoolers and college age males, primarily. Always has. This group overwhelmingly supports Obama. SNL knows their audience and does programming to appeal to that demographic. Should Michael Savage do a pro-Obama rant just for fairness' sake? No, that would be absurd; his target demographic would never stand for it. Why should SNL be expected to offer equal time to anyone when they have never even claimed to be a news show? What a preposterous fucking claim this is...

Me too. Yawn. More railing against the MSM. Zzzzz....
Me too too.

I really hate it when some sniveling little shit of a Republican cowardly bastard slime ball worm implies I might be 'venemous' and on top of that doesn't even know how to spell it.
Moonbeam ... you really surprise me. I recall your posts about 4-5 years back when one could make little sense of your writings. Are you really the same Moonbeam?
Yes it's still me but I've become incredibly stupid. It embarrasses the hell out of me but I do seem now to be much more widely understood.

You did realize, I hope, that I was just trying to fill the shoes of a Venomous Liberal, no? ;)

T2T III, seriously how to expect to make fun of Obama? Oh no he's educated, physically fit, excellent public speaker, has a attractive wife, kids, a nice house and is going to be the next president!

Hilarious right?

Where did you get the idea that I was in a rural area? What is your guess as to where I reside?

You should market the pill that's raised your intelligence level. You could make lots of money, allow Obama to take most of it via more taxes ... and live off what little remains.

I quit reading after that line because you can't spell 'venomous.' Upon learning this, I decided not to take your post, or the thread, seriously.

Yes, but if I sold it to you I'd lose the privilege of reading your, well let's call them, fascinating posts.

I despise people who poke fun at other people's spelling. He might be lisdexic.

If it makes you feel better, I only broach the subject when the misspelling is used in an attempted attack on a person or group. It seems especially disingenuous to make generalizations about a group of people while failing to even properly spell your attack. I would think such an action only serves to highlight the attacker's own ignorance.

Well, for that, give yourself a good ol' pat on the back. Do you also stop reading the posts from your fellow Libs on this forum when they spell something wrong? Do you point out their spelling errors?

I thought so. Nothing like a Lib using the old "double standard" just to make themselves happy to have that psuedo-superior feeling.

No. If I thought I was better than everyone else, I'd have to consider myself a Liberal. :D

Have you been to Dictionary.com and looked up the word venemous?

Yup, I'll stand being called venomous, but you crossed the line with venemous... that's going too far.
