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

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

        • Larry Kelly

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

        • timdub70

          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.

          • Cecelia

            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.

          • Larry Kelly

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

          • Larry Kelly

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

        • Grandpa D

          ‘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.

          • Cecelia

            Happy birthday!

            In your family it’s either combined presents or refinance the house every year.

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

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

      What a complete misrepresentation of the truth.

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

      • timdub70

        I thought he was broadcasting out of a closet.

        • Larry Kelly

          The lighting is better than his show on Current.

      • Larry Kelly

        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.

  • Lurker

    Happy Birthday J$

    Facebook says it’s your birthday today =P

  • homemaker

    Jumping on the bandwagon! Happy Birthday Johnny!

  • ojfl

    Happy Birthday.

  • ojfl

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

    • Larry Kelly

      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.

      • ojfl

        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.

        • Larry Kelly

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

        • gcblues

          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.

    • lonestar33

      Agreed

      • gcblues

        obvious to all unless you can believe in magic.

    • Mitch Alan

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

      • ojfl

        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.

        • gcblues

          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.

          • Mitch Alan

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

          • gcblues

            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.

          • Mitch Alan

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

          • gcblues

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

          • Larry Kelly

            DOW up 9% since election.

          • gcblues

            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.

        • Mitch Alan

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

        • Larry Kelly

          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.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Larry’s doog is more conservative that Herself.

        • Larry Kelly

          and better looking.

    • Lurker

      TRUMP saved the Republican Party!

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

      • gcblues

        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.

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

  • Larry Kelly

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

    • The former.

    • homemaker

      Can you believe Eichenwald actually got Twitter,through a court order, to release the info about the guy who sent him the strobe GIF? No criminal charges filed yet but Twitter responded. Do we even need to guess which way the Twitter honchos lean?

      • Larry Kelly

        Trump needs to have a big list of judges to appoint. Hope he gets 8 years of doing so. The true legacy of Obama are the judges that go for these kinds of decisions.

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

  • Larry Kelly

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

  • Larry Kelly

    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.
    Woof.

    • Mitch Alan

      Trump can still be stopped on January 6th in Congress. Just one Senator and one Congressman need protest the Electoral College vote, and the whole thing goes into debate.

      • Larry Kelly

        I remember when the entire Black Caucus walked out of GWB’s in January, 2001. Empty gesture then. Empty now.

      • GATXER

        Which wont happen.

    • homemaker

      I smiled like a Chesire cat when I heard that news!

  • 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.

    • Bill said in the Tip of the Day that he will return January 3.

  • Larry Kelly

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

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

    Maddow gets my Concrete Award for being a blockhead.

    • homemaker

      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!

      • Larry Kelly

        And Happy Holidays to Thomas Roberts. His Emmy looks good on the mantle above the stockings.

  • sky303

    Happy Birthday J$ , a December Birthday oh my 😉

    • Cecelia

      It’s not like it’s the one that December is known for.

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

    Happy Birthday, Johnny!

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Spud’s certainly in the holiday mood. But what does the Vice President have to do with it?

      • Larry Kelly

        Grumpy today because he’s arguing with the PornoCat who’s getting the better of him in the Halperin comments.

        • He must be off his game if porno-cat can best him. Usually that feral feline can’t outthink Bullwinkle.

          • Larry Kelly

            Must have got the Krell brain boost.

          • It does wonders for your id.

        • He’s definitely been edgy for the last few days, like Bruce Banner just before he tells someone ‘you wouldn’t like me when I’m angry’.

          • Larry Kelly

            thats what happens when cosmic rays hit a potato

          • Cecelia

            Great. He’ll soon be busting out of his shirt and in here.

          • We’re about overdue for another “you’re all idiots!” outburst. Still time to get it in before New Year’s.

          • Cecelia

            Well, it’s not like he’s got anyone to talk to at his blog.

    • What was that all about anyhow? Did you hide his snorkel again?

      • Larry Kelly

        Referencing his snarky Twitter reply to you ending with “stupid question” when in fact he gave a pretty stupid answer. I think he surfaced too quickly from his last diving trip. I learned never to do that from watching SEA HUNT.

        • “Always swim with a buddy” was my takeaway from Mike Nelson’s little closing comments.

          • Cecelia
