      That was Zucker’s plan CNN Fight nights

        When Zucker is finally fired, Stelter will go right out the door with him.

        • Larry Kelly

          And his little dog too.

  • Larry Kelly

    Finished my run of rainbow confederate flags. Problem with eBay who tell me they are of mixed mind.

  • Larry Kelly

    I’m betting the look on Stelter’s face when he hit the DELETE is the same one my dog gives when she poops in the house and I see her.

    • gcblues

      stelter beyond being an idiot is a loser. a little honestly please.

  • Marty

    Bob has most likely seen the twits hating on big bad Roger Ailes as the reason for his being let go. He’s smart in not burning all his bridges. And I do believe he’s being sincere. I wasn’t a big fan of his but I believe him to be insincere.

    • gcblues

      only liberals can hate an honestly good and talented man

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    Beckel is handling this smartly. If he gets a job for another American cable news station, this will help him. As a general rule, a potential employers doesn’t look too kindly upon someone who has badly maligned his former employer.

    It’s amazing overwhelming enthusiasm for yesterday’s decision is playing out on TV, but in my circles, many religious people I know are just quietly furious. Not me, as I’ve been in favor of gay marriage for a few years now, but I see general acceptance hurt by how this came to be. Ohio being one of the states in yesterday’s ruling, was in my opinion about two years from a ballot issue approval that would have overturned our 2004 state constitutional ammendment profiting same sex marriage. Shoving what people preceive as wrong down their throats often has unforseen consequences. Just look what one guy’s rage at what he considered railroading of Geoge Zimmerman wrought.

    After watching Miss Julie, all that I can say is (sigh!).

  • Larry Kelly

    Oh Betsy, what sharp claws you have.

    • Marty

      Brian Stelter- teacher’s pet.

      • Larry Kelly

        Not much worse than a brown-noser. Maybe a troll.

        • gcblues

          maybe? one day they will find brian in the bushes of central park with richard quest.

    • Cecelia

      I’m not a fan of Stelter, but that piece is just ugly and nasty.

      • gcblues

        accurate:
        1. selter is a creep
        2. zucker enables it
        3. classic codependency.
        4. author described reality.

        i do not see ugly or nasty anywhere, but then according to you i do not know what a wife is. i know it is not a guy, like a cat is not a dog, or bruce j is not a woman, or that wierdo chick in the news is not black. twisting definitions has become a game. does not mean one has to play.

        .

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          GC, the wife mix up was that Cece was talking about Neil Boortz, you thought that she meant the one whose name will not be mentioned.

          • gcblues

            how would i know. it was days ago. all i recall is the nails…lol

      • It is pretty harsh; so much so that I didn’t tweet it as I do most of the links I post.

        • gcblues

          harsh? i did not find it harsh. in a few days it is 7/4. now the declaration was harsh, and the 2/3s removed out of it that was about king George was really harsh. jeff was bummed. the link was accurate. looking at selter you would not let him watch your grand kids. that is enough for me.

        • The Real Royal Emperor

          I spent several years being told by rightist bloggers that by criticizing Sarah Palin and predicting her demise I was showing my fear of her. By that standard we have some folks around here who truly fear both Zucker and Stelter.

          • Cecelia

            Except the folks around here who just voiced criticism at the tone of the piece, which would have only filled your heart with glee had it been about a conservative,

            You’re a guy who trashed Palin about everything from her children to her eye make-up.

            Don’t try to make any comparison here of the level and maturity of the criticism you foisted on her in order to anger her fans.

            There’s no comparison. Sit down.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            Except, of course, the “you fear her” comparison is exactly on point. I’m not sure anyone ever feared her. But, her fans seemed to really believe that. I’m now sure anyone fears Stelter (or Kurtz). But, if I and the remainder of the 54% of Americans did not fear her but we’re accused of being in a state of abject fear, shouldn’t that same argument work with the people so obsessed over Stelter? I would think so. It’s only logical.

          • Cecelia

            Afraid not. It does not follow that because two people are being criticized, the tenor, tone, and motives behind the criticism are the same.

            The piece about Stelter got immediate push back on the very site you then argued was treating him in the way you treated Palin.

            Inaccurate in every way.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            Sure, Whatever. Too much to celebrate in The New America to have an acrimonious discussion. I’m marinating some rib eyes in Pinot Noir and have just made some Creamy Parmesean Pepper dressing for mixed greens. Just die Frau und Ich. Hope your late day Sunday is glorious, too.

          • Cecelia

            Yet another inaccuracy.

          • gcblues

            translation: alone with a can of cold Chef Boryardee at the end of the food stamp month again. any idiot knows putting a good rib eye in wine ruins it.

          • Cecelia

            In pinnie!

          • gcblues

            pinot, vinegar, makes no diif it ruins the beef or lamb for that matter. if used on either it is to finish it off, or as a reduced topping, not marinade. that is stupid 101 stuff.

          • The Real Royal Emperor

            That’s really uncalled for, Cecelia.

          • Cecelia

            so I’m supposed to pretend you arent full of maliciousness?

          • gcblues

    we had fish tacos early so i whipped up a french crepe batter to make the kids fruit crepes with cherries, mango, peach, and vanilla ice cream on the side. crepes are easy. i make extra and make in the morning with potatoes, scrambled eggs and good cheese served with crema acida …. uhhh sour cream. millions of recipes. i use this one. if only for sweet stuff i add some pure vanilla, or an extract like almond.

    1 cup all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon white sugar

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    3 eggs

    2 cups milk

    2 tablespoons butter, melted

    put in the fridge until the bubbles leave. cooks better. fry in a nonstick with butter. when you ladle do so in circular motion to cover the pan bottom but not deep, it is not a pancake. cooks fast, watch out. fold over fruit. squirt of whipped cream on top with a little of the juice from fruit spritzed on whipped cream. ice cream on the side. a little chocolate frosting in with the fruit if you want to kill the kids.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Looks good.

      • gcblues

        you have amazing eye sight. just a few bubbles left then butter in the pan………….

      • gcblues

        try it. very easy or the french would suck at it. lol.

      • gcblues

        yum yum yum where do i send fotos?

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    On Kornacki this morning; The political panel reached a consensus that Bridgegate and surrounding events probably removed Chrisite as a serious contender. While I doubt he was ever a serious contender, I do think Bridgegate and his horrible approval numbers have removed him from an also ran to a never will be.

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    On “This Week” Ken Blackwell and Mike Huckabee advance the tires old meme “if we had just waited, this would have all come around in good time”. I’m sure all of us of a certain age recall hearing this with reference to civil rights in the 1960’s. Around here, it is likely some even advanced that argument then and now. I’d like to have seen George make that point in follow-up. Of course his follow-up is about as non-existent as Megyn Kelly’s. But, you pretty much have to concede that if we had taken the advice of the “waiters” in 1965, we’d all still be waiting.

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    So a bit of the NYC celebrations on MSNBC, and, locally, of the Lake Travis celebrations. When liberty and equality break out, it’s a real rush.

    • Cecelia

      As though any rush you could feel was anything other than schadenfreude.

  • The Real Royal Emperor

    Looks like we’ve shifted to full prison break mode, now. With MSNBC and FOX so NY-centric about everything else, I wonder if under the same circumstances, we would have been covering the event to this extent if it were Huntsville or Angola or Parchman? Probably not. I guess it’s a good thing we have some more geographic perspective on at least one cable network. On Friday, it was pretty much the only game in town.

    1 Bob Beckel thanks Roger Ailes: ‘He’s been a loyal and good friend.’

  • Larry Kelly

    From this weekend’s coverage, one might think Bernie Sanders is the next Eugene McCarthy.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      With Madame Clinton as LBJ. But, whatever you do, don’t tell the Bird.

      • gcblues

        Hubert i believe.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Nah, Hubert got the nomination after RFK got whacked. McCarthy came in a good second in New Hampshire and LBJ decided to drop his reelection bid.

          • gcblues

            so in this election Hillary is Hubert.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            No, Biden might be Hubert. A slightly goofy version, though. But, then, Joe’s been through so much in life that he has earned the right to be a little eccentric.

          • gcblues

            she looks and sounds huberty to me.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            To me, she looks like an elderly version of Barry Manilow in drag.

          • Cecelia

            She’s almost 70 years old. Give her a break.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Anybody else I would, but not Herself.

          • Cecelia

            Politics shouldn’t deter you from being reasonable.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            She’s earned my contempt.

          • gcblues

            reasonable would be Hillary in prison orange pantsuits.

    • gcblues

      that is the exact media play making Hillary Hubert Humphrey,whom she resembles.
