I'm surprise the Friends didn't pick up on the little porn interlude out in Arizona last night during the Super Bowl....That sort of outrage is right up their street...Or will Bill be dealing with it tonight?

In all honesty 15 yards is 45 feet, and he said he went the other way. Olbermann might have not even seen him.  
 
Obama said many time if its not the Bears in the Super Bowl his next team was the Steelers because Tony Dungy played for them in the 70's

Obama has been a Steelers supporter for many years....You just not listening to what he says.

In all honest the Arizona Cardinals were the Chicago Cardinals before the move to St Louis in the 50's. So honestly Obama could have picked them also since he lived in Chicago

Haggis - Once again, your analysis is spot off. As expected.
 
Rush had a television program on for about four years in the early 90's. On the wall of the set was a Steelers jersey. He's talked about being a major fan of the Steelers since his DJ days in Pittsburgh in the 70s.
 
By the way Haggy - It's now day 60 or so since you promised to back up your smear about Bret Baier. But that's what we've come to expect from you, phoney smears against others you can't back up.

Haggis, funny that you didn't mention that when you started the original smear then said you would get back to us. Since you have an irrational hatred and obsession for everything fox,  
since you frequently smear fox news hosts without providing facts, since you are an absolute liar who has repeatedly lied on this web site, lied about your lies, and lied about those lies..I don't believe a word you say.
 
This was just another in a long line of your phoney smears that you either make up or gather from others using your weak analytical skills.

It wasn't that long ago that they were getting in the 500s in "the demo". Now they've dropped 20%-40% and are in the 300s-400s. I think that the reason they don't have any ratings is because Keithy has been eating them.

So, The Steelers are a close second because Tony Dungy played for them over 30 years ago.
 
So BHO didn't rank the Giants or or 9'ers even though Dungey played for them? He didn't rank the Bucs because Tony Dungey coached them? He didn't rank the Colts when he coached them and led them to victory in last years Super Bowl?
 
As usual Haggy - your analytical skills are weak.

1. I don't believe President Obama ever said Coach Dungy had anything to do with the reason he favored the Steelers.
 
2. Dan Rooney endorsed candidate Obama.  
 
3. Jerome Bettis and Franco Harris campaigned for Obama.
 
4. Olbermann told Obama to pick the Steelers.

Yes, Obama did say he had great respect for Dungy as a player, coach and as a father , and also as a Christian, and I do not believe that Olbermann told Obama to pick the Steelers. That is a stretch to even say that.

Sorry Ashley to say this but Limbaugh is no different that Olbermann except that Olbermann still has a job reporting on football unlike Rush who was fired by ESPN for his racial tone about Eagles QB Donovan McNabb

Good catch on the #4 Olbermann reference. Can't kid a kidder!
 
Irrelevent response to the reason Obama favored the Steelers.
 
I spoke with Tony Saturday night. He was more interested in keeping KO honest than why the President favored the Steelers.

I wish I hadn't been reminded of Limbaugh's foray into television. Even if you could tolerate his politics and his self-worship, what a snarky show that was. The worst production values I've ever seen. I haven't been able to catch Hannity's new show yet. I understand it's pretty bad, too.
