  • I enjoyed The Wise Guys.

    • carolr527

      I did, too.

  • Saintsfan720

    Andrew Kirell’s tweet about “Wise guys” was typical social media snark. Not funny, interesting, or clever. Having said that, I watched about 10 minutes of the show after watching my New Orleans Saints beat Carolina. Switching to “Wise Guys” from the game was like a car in 5th gear at 70mph suddenly being put in 1st gear going about 15. Couldn’t do it.

  • Thank you, Joe Concha.

    • Larry Kelly

      That’s why I call him, “Mr. Concha”.

      • Cecelia

        My husband says, “Hey, honey! That Concha guy is on!”

    • Cecelia

      That was pretty good.

    Old MSM Theory: Trump would say or do anything to win the Presidency, including making an illegal, sleazy deal with Putin to get dirt on Hillary. Perhaps money changed hands, but he had to win.

    New Wolff MSM Theory: Trump never wanted to win in the first place. It was all a big publicity stunt that went wrong. He really wanted to start a new cable news network with Roger Ailes. Melania Trump cried with despair on Election Night when she realized that Trump would win.

    Which is it?

    • Larry Kelly

      It’s a breath mint and a candy mint.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        It’s two!, two!, two mints in one!

      Whichever fits the conspiracy du jour.

  • Cecelia

    What does anyone with vast experience, insider knowledge, and connections have for Andrew Kirrell?

  • Tomaza Jarquin

    The McLaughlin Group posted on RCP was high end quality discussion.Forgot about wise guyz, guess i need to youtube em.

      weird lighting. trying to create a “listening in” effect? hard to see it as a “millennial” hit.

        Gawd, Tapper wimped out. In his own way, he’s worse than Stelter.

        • Minnesota Nice

          Tappers snarky and immature respones to Miller proves he also has no journalistic standard.

        • Cecelia

          Trump is the crucible.

    • Larry Kelly

      I think Tapper is feeling the heat of his Sunday performance lumping him in the same basket as Stelter. Time for an emergency differentiation.

  • Mitch Alan

    If Wolf Blitzer married Michael Wolff, his name would be Wolf Wolff. I don’t know if they are gay, but it could conceivably happen.

    • Larry Kelly

      Would make excellent adoptive parents for Sirhan Sirhan or Lassie.

  • Minnesota Nice

    It’s 2018 and the best my Dr. can tell me is lots of rest and plenty of fluids!

    • Cecelia

      Airborne is

      • Larry Kelly

        Live in a cabin a mile from the nearest neighbor and have a freezer.

        • Cecelia

          You lucky dog.

          • Larry Kelly

            That would be my companion.

          • Cecelia

            Indeed.

          • Larry Kelly

            Hosted four rough, tough deer hunters over the weekend for Ohio’s two day muzzleloader season. Bunch of softies when it comes to Bella.

          • Cecelia

            Did she share her chair?

          • Larry Kelly

            Nobody uses that chair but the two of us, but she did spend time in the chairs of 3 of the 4. The 4th being my cabin-owning partner and husband of Bella’s former owner. Dog and man have a mutual avoidance agreement.

          • Cecelia

            I trust her taste.

          • Larry Kelly

  • Larry Kelly

    Announced today Obama’s presidential library wil have a basketball court. For his fans that can’t read I suppose.

  • Larry Kelly

    Hmm, the wife of my former partner’s son was Oprah’s architect. Redid her Chicago apartment and built her girl’s school in South Africa. If I play my cards right I might get a future White House visit. Will have to keep my mouth shut though.

    • GATXER

      Well a poll done last march had 69% of people saying they didn’t want her to run………and my party is not crazy enough to try to run somebody so many people don’t want twice in a row so I wouldn’t pack them bags yet Larry.

      • Cecelia

        The DNC would have her opposition-research-retired by the second debate.

      • Larry Kelly

        Well darn, I was planning on stealing the “O” keys off the keyboards.

    More African-Americans Watched MSNBC Last Year Than Any Other Cable Network in Prime Time. I conclude they don’t much like Don Lemon either.

    • gcblues

      any other cable NEWS net,or cable net, things have not changed that much in 15 years. Or maybe the world turned upside down.
