        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          C-SPAN 2 has it live.

          • Larry Kelly

            Sleep… perchance to dream. Ah, there’s the rub.

          • Grandpa D

            Something happened in DC last night???

          • Larry Kelly

            Not certain, but pretty sure I haven’t got tired of winning yet.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Somebody showed McCain the Red Queen.

        • sky303

          And MSNBC came on the live again at 1am et

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Good piece by Concha. I suspect that there will be a new White House Communications Director within six weeks.

    • Larry Kelly

      … well, got a new Chief of Staff within six hours.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        Somebody with the last name of Kelly. Bella, perchance?

        • Larry Kelly

          A doog for all seasons, but no, she has a job.

      • Grandpa D

        Last General who became Chief of Staff was Al Haig, according to Larry Sabato. Interesting double tweet earlier today. — https://twitter.com/LarrySabato/status/891087484452564992

  • carolr527

    FOX is live now with Jackie Ibanez, Chad Pergram, and Brett Baier.

  • Larry Kelly

    Charles rarely pulls his punches, but that was his knockout combination.

    • gcblues

      He has been right since the beginning of this farce. even shill Rasmussen is coming around.

    • Mitch Alan

      Don’t forget, Krauthammer is a strong never-Trumper, I don’t trust his rather pompous pronunciations because of that alone.

      • gcblues

        yes , it is true, the vast majority of sentient humans are never-trumpers. Es logico chico.

      • He wasn’t a conservative yet. He is now, albeit not a diehard Trump supporter. I’m not a Never Trumper, but I will admit he wasn’t my first choice. He’s accomplished plenty, but he needs to get the hell off Twitter. And if he can’t do that, then he should at least knock off the impulsive, reactionary tweets. But that won’t happen. He’s a counterpuncher, after all. They started it. To quote Mama Bear of the Berenstain Bears, I don’t care who started it.

        I went off on a long tangent, but at least my position is on record. Now, back to cable news.

        • Cecelia

          I like your tangents.

          • Thank you.

          • They’re usually a good sine.

          • Larry Kelly

            cos they’re well thought out

          • Cecelia

            You know I’ve always thought that I might just could go back to college and retake that class and actually pass it.

            Or sumpthin.

          • Larry Kelly

            Keep your high pot in use. Might come in handy.

          • Cecelia

            Words to live by.

    Keller: Veracity of CNN Taliban ‘exclusive’ in dispute.
    They might not be special in that part of the world, but in a full auto state an M-16 full auto will fetch as much as a mint 59 Strat

  • Fox Specialists goes up several notches when Brian Kilmeade is subbing for Eric Bolling.

    • gcblues

      not a bowling fan so that is ez, seen less of brian, i do not know if he wears well but he seems to know more each time i listen to him. his bronx accent had me stereotype him i believe. they are not all …. well never mind.

      • Larry Kelly

        I always liked MAKE THAT SPARE.

        • Championship Bowling with Fred Wolf was a favorite at our hacienda. (Fred was a local radio guy to boot.)

          • Larry Kelly

            I drive by the AMF Riviera Lanes in Fairlawn, OH, made famous by ABC and fellow Boilermaker Chris Schenkel every time I visit my periodontist. The Firestone Tournament of Champions was traditionally held here.

          • timdub70

            There was a time when the Pro Bowlers Tour on ABC was the most popular show in its time slot on Saturday afternoons.

          • Larry Kelly

            It was entertaining to even us non-bowlers. You couldn’t pay me to watch golf.

          • 15 years and five months ago, I bowled a 221. It was well above my average in the low 100s. About a decade ago, I played a lot of the Wii Sports video game for the Nintendo Wii console. I excelled at bowling, routinely scoring above 200. I was an ace with the WiiMote (remote controller).

          • timdub70

            My best was 222, twice.

          • My second best was 184 in February 2005.

    • John Knappmann

      Not a big fan of Bolling or the Specialists show, esp. since the two outside ‘specialists” are usually two Trump defenders who happen to be available. I like Kilmeade on here better than on F&F.

      • I keep telling them to book Trump defenders who aren’t available, but they don’t listen to me.

        • Larry Kelly

          I blame the librarian when all the books I want are checked out.

    • Mitch

      They need to get rid of Bolling’s daughter, Kat.

    • Presbyter

      While I think is a guy I’d like if I met him in person, I don’t think I’ve ever heard him enunciate a complete calmly spoken sentence.

  • Larry Kelly

    Scaramucci, Scaramucci, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright ‘ning me …

  • Larry Kelly

    Al Jazeera America’s lean was often indistinguishable from MSNBC’s. Staffers should be interchangeable without voiding warranties.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 executive producer
    4 in dispute
    3 blasts
    2 Greta talks about
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Brooke says ‘yes’.

  • Larry Kelly

    Hannity continues to have anybody that’s anybody — night after night. Or like tonight, somebody that was somebody: Reince Priebus.

  • Larry Kelly

    He did it again tonight. Bret Baier interupts the panel during their Washington style criticism of Trump to try to suggest the POV of the people that elected him. To me, Bret is very good at this, and I appreciate it. Panel members must too as their efforts to play off it is usually worthwhile.

    • gcblues

      i would think he would ask the questions of any sizable side with no position representation on the panel as almost a reflex, it is his job well done. However if we were to sort back the mountain of daily events going back for months now, knowing it will only continue, it will be harder, and harder to blame the panel for only seeing the chaos. the best question i have heard is what outcomes are possible with this sort of daily new burst of focus on one chaotic piece of nothing after another? is it supposed to negate the growing problems not being addressed? i know, we will wait for the deficit to hit some magic number then pay attention. depressing man.
