Glenn Beck Uses Vicks to Make Himself Cry
Reported by Alex - Fri 6:29 PM
 
There is something not right about what the Dog Washer posted. It looks like a photo shoot. I don't see a lot of facts here to back up their assertions. Of course the Dogettes never let facts get in their way of a good smear job.
 
I doubt if he could get away with using Vicks on his program.
 
There has got to be more to this.

Yes it's a photo shoot where the photographer wanted shots of him crying. His tv show of course is done live, as it happens, with HD cameras zoomed in on his face. This is just a smear as we've come to expect from the newsliars.

It wouldn't be the first time the Dog Washers pulled this little trick.  
 
I have seen the same type of information on other lefty sites. Someone posts some information about Fox or a republican/conservative and the sheep come running to the attack.  
 
In many cases they turn out to be incorrect but you will NEVER see an apology or correction.

JJ$ Do you know if they replaced Terry Keenan with Cheryl Casone now on Cashin' In? I've been seeing Cheryl for weeks now and she doesn't even say she's filling in for Keenan. Thanksnbsp;

No permanent change that I know of. You're right, tho, it's been a while since Keenan's been seen on that show.

Lurker & Johnny: I have also been wondering about Terry Keenan's whereabouts.
 
However, I notice that Terry is still writing her weekly column for the New York Post so she has not completely left the News Corp. building.

News Hounds Priscilla the Plagairist supports pedophiles!!!!!
 
Activist Bill O’Reilly Encourages Protests Outside MO Judge’s House
Reported by Priscilla - October 3, 2009 - 2 comments  
 
Well, maybe not. But her headline is in fact a lie. Nowhere in her latest attack/smear posting does she even mention going to the judges house.
 
So many lies. So little time.

Mr. Dollar, I hope you realize you are opening yourself up to some criticizm by the likely suspects for your use of the term;"Welchers". As a person of Welsh lineage, let me add that I'm not offended.

Actually, one origin of the word sez that it came into fashion when ENGLISH bookies came up across a string of long-shots they couldn't pay off, so they ran across the border into Wales. Hence the original "welshers" were not Welsh at all! I think we need Marina Orlova to sort this one out.

I made a mistake on the above posting but I am not going to apologize until I see one from the Houndettes.

JD,
 
How long did you have to monitor Shuvester & Tweety in order to compile your list of David's Top 100 list of "websites that are just as biased and just as whacky wefty as me?"

Chicago Dropped From Hosting 2016 Olympics, Beck Cheers For Obama's Failure
Reported by Guest Blogger - October 3, 2009 - 37 comments  
 
Reported by Jonathan
 
How does this moron link the loss of the Olympics to a war? And who exactly was hurt other than Daley's cronies?
 
The majority of people in Chicago did not want the Olympics. Why hasn't one of teh Dog Washers posted the poll on that issue, since they love polls so much.

You have to admit that most of the Right Wing talk show hosts semed to be happy that the United States of America lost in the bid to get the Olympic games in this country in 2016.
 
I remember the pride of this country when the USA hockey team won gold here in Lake Placid.
I remember it because I am a Canadian living here and for the USA hockey team to beat Canada's team was special. Especially in their home country
 
I guess none of the teams or solo athletes will have that chance in 2016.
They will compete in some place somewhere else knowing that their country dosen't give a damn.
 
But the right wingers won.
 
W00T for the republicans! You finally won something.

The 2016 Olympic that went to Rio are the Summer Olympics. I'm justr guessing here but I believe there is no Ice Hockey scheduled for the Summer Olympics.
 
Chicago was never going to get the Olympics anyway.
