    • Happy birthday, Johnny. December must have been quite the month growing up…

      • Notable by how often I got cheated with ‘combined’ presents. 😉

        • My mom, born on December 27th, shared your complaint.

        • Oh yes combined presents. My birthday is a week and a half after Christmas (January 4) and my sister’s is five days after (December 30). Happy Birthday.

          • Back in the Stone Age you didn’t get a plethora of presents unless you had a birthday party of your friends.

            Otherwise, you got one thing from your immediate family, one from each side of your grandparents, with aunts and uncles coming off a ten spot or so in a card via the mail.

            Nowadays a birthday is like freaking Christmas for kids.

          • My rule of thumb for kids: out of high school, out of presents.

          • Sis should have a least got a tax deduction thank you.

        • ‘combined’ presents are familiar in my family; today is also my birthday. It’s also the birthday of my youngest brother and my second (middle) brother’s wife. Also, my daughter was born on December 29th.

        • Happy Birthday to you and Grandpa D. Mine is next month. I share it with Richard Nixon, Elvis and Waltraud Meier.

  1. Show on MSNBC
    Show on CURRENT
    Something on ESPN
    VLOG from basement
    Progressive nostalgic convention

    • What a complete misrepresentation of the truth.

      Olbermann’s current VLOG is not from a basement…’s recorded in a garage.

      • I thought he was broadcasting out of a closet.

      • He needs to look at cable with the aid of the Ghost of Christmas Future. Suggest the JIM BAKKER SHOW which I happened on today for the first time in a decade. Jim seems to be in a Olbermann size garage cramped with an audience of about ten in folding chairs. Prophesising Trump’s election has triggered the end of days, he finances his show by selling 28 buckets of food for $3,100 which feeds a family for 9 1/2 years. Could be Keith’s future if he doesn’t get back on his meds.

  2. Happy Birthday J$

    Facebook says it’s your birthday today =P

  3. Jumping on the bandwagon! Happy Birthday Johnny!

  4. Happy Birthday.

  5. I take exception to the Hannity characterization as a conservative influential. This year he decided to betray conservatism for Trump.

    • You have a point. Trump is not a conservative. That said, people who are conservatives like much of what Trump said he was going to do. Certainly much more than they liked what Hillary campaigned on. Hannity was influential in achieving that among conservatives. I don’t watch his show, but am greatful.

      • That I think I agree more than the analysis we have been hearing. Ultimately for conservatives the choice was bad either way but one worse than the other, for sure.

        • As an NRA lifetime member, I couldn’t agree more.

        • we might wait awhile to see for sure. what is correct is that a lot of people bought into an unknown with clear mental issues over a known with clear dishonesty issues. To me the kicker is going to be if he tries to install a legislative industrial policy. No good conservative ending to that.

    • Agreed

    • Sean was able to understand that Trump is way more conservative than Hillary. Sorry if you didn’t.

      • It still does not make Trump conservative. Hillary was more conservative than Sanders. Is she a conservative? Hannity was already for Trump in the primary. Trump was not and is not more conservative than the majority of the field.

        • Trumpetes did not just choose the least of the worst, there seems to be a need to believe and be angry at anyone worried about the facts on the ground. I got that tshirt.

          • You dodged a bullet with Crooked Hillary. Thank your lucky stars.

          • how? there is no definitive proof of whom would be worse. i hate them both. they both are capable of doing things that would really hurt me. Not on either side, they both depress me. i just try to make a buck and move on.

          • if you like obama, that is what hillary is . you don’t have to be a genius to figure it out.

          • she is worse than obama. much worse. no telling what will happen with chump

          • DOW up 9% since election.

          • Dow represents a very small part of the total USA market cap. The broad bump is there, but look the market went sky high while the economy sucked under Obama. Wait. Let things play out. I bet you would be a cynic with your money in the market. apply it to politics.

        • He certainly isn’t a Bush conservative, thank God.

        • He sure as heck is appointing some conservative folks to his cabinet. If he follows up with judges, those who begrudge him, can go grumbling in circles.

      • Larry’s doog is more conservative that Herself.

    • TRUMP saved the Republican Party!

      Tell me what other Republican could’ve won MI, PA, WI or even IA? LOL

      • Against Hillary? John Kasich, Scott Walker, maybe Marco Rubio for starters. There were very qualified governors and the republicans picked someone that is an emotional land mine. So hope it won’t go off instead of hopey changy. Interesting to watch when all his good picks for his team start to disagree and leak behind his back. weeeeeeee.

  6. Thanks all for the b’day wishes. Ah ‘preciate it.

  7. It is very hard for me to decide which is the greater dick, Eichenwald or Stephanopoulos.

  8. The real war on Christmas comes annually at the hands of radical islamists.

  9. MADDOW gives a nightly monologue to make Republicans look stupid.
    TUCKER just invites liberals to converse.

  10. A handful of Democrats were wedded to the idea of getting 37 Trump electors to flip, and thereby throw the contest to the House of Representatives. In the end, Trump lost two while Clinton lost five.

  11. Jesse Watters said on Facebook and Twitter that he’s filling in for Mr. Bill tomorrow and Thursday. That means Bill’s Christmas/New Year’s vacation starts after tonight. I assume he’ll return on January 2 or 3.

  12. Spud the purist. Stop with the windmill chasing. Watch CNN New Year’s Eve for a reality fix.

  13. food porn tweeted for a lightening of the day

  14. If I were going to invite a million Muslim immigrants into my country, I’d at least install some security cameras. Just sayin’.

  15. Maddow gets my Concrete Award for being a blockhead.

    • Only liberal reporters ever get awards. They always have to keep scratching each other’s backs. Rachel could be pushed off the cliff like the Granny in the ad against Paul Ryan & I’d be more worried if there was anyone she might land on!

      Oh yeah – Merry Christmas!

  16. Happy Birthday J$ , a December Birthday oh my 😉

    Not just the USA missing. All of western europe, Asia, and Australia not participating. Actually might just work.

  18. Happy Birthday, Johnny!
