    What we need is a live commercial for Lipton Tea again by Arthur Godfrey, but that would be hard to pull off.

  • Mitch Alan

    My favorite version of my favorite Christmas song. Stay for the second verse if you dare.

  • To really sell his ensemble, Joe Concha should have had a mug of hot cocoa in his right hand.

    • Mitch Alan

      Why wasn’t he wearing green pants?

      • Larry Kelly

        There could be a possibility Mr. Concha is color blind and thought the grey blazer might look good with the tie.

        • Cecelia

          He’s going to a party. Love it when people dress with festive whimsy.

          I get the color blind joke, but you’ve got it right in a way. Trousers should be charcoal grey.

        • Joe Concha

          Next year!

      • Joe Concha

        Clashed with the tie.

    • Larry Kelly

      I think it would have been okay if he had just worn a manly hat. Everyone should wear a manly hat. Well, maybe not Dagen.

    • Joe Concha

      I did. But drank it all during the intro…

  • Larry Kelly

    Because the universe demands conservation of HAPPINESS, my joy requires an offset… so fate has chosen this guy https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/latino/kathleen-krumhansl/2017/12/20/jorge-ramos-says-hes-now-having-worst-time-his-life-us

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      if Ramos isn’t happy here, he’s free to leave.

      • Larry Kelly

        Or join the opposition… wait, I think he’s a cell leader.

  • Mitch Alan

    This Christmas song was actually banned at Harvard University, but is still a favorite of mine.

  • Minnesota Nice

    I did something really crazy today. I went shopping. What a zoo out there. I bet everyone is spending their upcoming tax savings! Merry Christmas.

    • Larry Kelly

      Statistics today on TV showed spending way up and saving way down. Yep, America’s great again!

  • Larry Kelly

    CBS THIS MORNING profiled three varying income middle class families (North Carolina, Rode Island, California) to see how they would fare under the Trump tax bill. None thought they would see their taxes cut. All got cuts, the Californians, a whopping $13,000. Shows how the Democrats and their media propagandists had poisoned the mindset. CBS of course had to end the piece with a sour note about the tax cuts expiring – without mentioning that’s in ten years and is about as likely to be allowed to happen as Steven Colbert being funny.

  • Minnesota Nice

    Sharing Music Day!

    I love this song, which is currently featured in a Lincoln (automobile) commercial.

    Dmitiri Shostakovich – Waltz No. 2

  • Minnesota Nice

    One of my favorite Christmas songs –

    The Little Drummer Boy by Johnny Cash

  • Minnesota Nice

    Bret Baier dons a awesome sports coat in the James Rosen post. Very festive.

  • sky303

    Too Bad James Rosen is out at FNC

    • Cecelia

      No!

      • Larry Kelly

        Jeus wept.

  • J.J.

    Mika is truly a horrible person. Why would you make that public?

    • Larry Kelly

      Will be dwarfed by the revelations in the books written shortly after the failed marriage.

  • James, please don’t go to the competition!

    • Mitch Alan

      Who would hire him, except maybe Sinclair Broadcasting, and even that would seem unlikely.

      • sky303

        i24 news maybe? beef up more their American reporting.

      • I have a feeling he’s headed for something other than broadcast, like Commentary magazine or something of that ilk.

        • Larry Kelly

          Well, it’s a damn shame. As a regular Special Report viewer, my ears perk up every time I hear his name.

        • Mitch Alan

          That’s what Major Garret said when he left Fox News, he wanted to write for a magazine. He really had a job lined up at CBS.

      • Cecelia

        That didn’t stop Major Major.

        • Mitch Alan

          Major is a liberal who didn’t like working for Fox News. I don’t get the impression that Rosen is a liberal.

      • GATXER

        Has he done something Im not aware of? Hes a respected journalist who’s spent more than a decade at the #1 News network……..why would any other place not hire him in a NY minute.

    • Homemaker

      I will miss him. He is a great reporter and very personable. He was great at substituting for Bret when he was off. I hope he found someplace to work that will utilize his talents in a non-biased way. Maybe he felt his talents were not appreciated anymore.
      I hope he does not go the way of Major Garrett. After reading his story just a week or so ago I was disappointed in the language he chose about the news business. Maybe CBS is a slower pace than cable and that’s what he wanted but IMHO he got sick of no access to the WH when Obama was around. He felt the brunt of that-now he’s an insider and he likes that better.

    Follow up on Mika’s disgusting attempt to shame the victims of her BFF Mark Halperin:

    “We would ask for Ms. Brzezinski for higher standards of editorial judgment, compassion & human decency.”

        Kudos to Mika for apologizing.

        Watching the segment I thought that Mika was onto something important in that these men should have a chance to apologize and shouldn’t wear this like a scarlet letter for the rest of their lives (these cases vary – there are more benign cases and then there is Harvey Weinstein or Charlie Rose) but you don’t start attacking Halperin’s victims for refusing to meet with him. She should have kept her comments general and left it there.

        • Mitch Alan

          Mika i has been spreading a rumor on her show that Trump groped Billy Bush on that bus trip he took for the Access Hollywood show. She is very strange to be honest.

          • Cecelia

            Yeah. But for Halperin she’s school marm mediator.

      • Cecelia

        Now Mika is a victim of sexual assault?

        Is that some sort rite of passage in some circles, like wearing too much blush or being coerced into a date with a friend of your parents son?

    Charles Krauthammer hasn’t written a newspaper column since August. He must be much sicker than people think, unfortunately.

  • LenInFlux

    Scarborough is taking it on the chin with that house – he bought it 6 years ago for 4.6 million and has reduced the asking price from 4 million to 3.6 million. He’ll probably end up getting around 3 million.
