Glenn Beck Pretends To Throw A Frog Into Boiling Water
Reported by Ellen - September 24, 2009 - 22 comments  
Some times they can be funny. I know, it's a rare feat for the great unwashed of Henland.

Re: Most trusted.
I believe the media had a big part in his election but I don't believe any Republican could have been elected in 08. People get weary after ahwile.
ANd they may get weary very fast over Obama if he keeps going in the direction he is taking.

Does anyone know what this intellectual midget is talking about?
I was over there again and saw Dollar deleted "Antoinette | 09.23.09 - 5:33 am" in between "Weasel words from a weasel man" and Blafoons comment of "Whoopi said it BEST"Lying Sack of DogShit". I didn't realize Dollar would stoop that low to make it look like Antoinette made that comment. But I guess now we know. Anyone can go on the NHs and read the comment that Antoinette made, and that Dogshit is not in it.
Thanks for stopping by litte johnt.

What is this moron talking about? Why would I have edited out "antionette" in the first place? And if I had, I would have put 'edited by siteowner' on the message. Once again john t lies about me and this site with reckless abandon.
Even dumber, how does removing 'antoinette's name from the post "make it look like Antionette made that comment"? How would anyone connect it to Antoinette at all if her name doesn't even appear?!?  
Man, how dense can one person get?

That was from a post I made and I purposely left every name out. You;ll see that if you go back and look at it.
I'm telling you, this guy is another Patrick with mental issues.
I used to go round and round with him and his statements just gor more crazy. It's like he just wasn't paying attention and didn't want to hear what I had to say.

John T is the only human being on Earth who can make Patrick look intelligent.
Who can forget his constant denials about the Dems controlling the senate from 2001-2003?
Who can forget his denials about NASA cancelling the space shuttle program?
Who can forget his denials that Ellen was crazy when she defended the Tony Snow thread moderation issue (2008 ) by stating in the same paragraph that they did not have moderation and that they did have moderation at the time of Tony Snow's death
"Comments were not moderated on this blog in 2008. Our only option for comments was on or off. "
"At the time Snow died, each News Hound moderated their own threads. Chrish, who wrote the Tony Snow post, sent an email to us saying that she was leaving for the day and had turned off the comments so that we would be spared the burden of having to moderate her thread. "
John T did win the "Who's dumber, Patrick or John T" contest earlier this year. So far, he's practically a lock for the prize to be awarded in 2010 too.

Malkin's Rant About Obama's U.N. Speech Shows Who Really Hates America
Reported by Ellen - September 24, 2009 - comments  
As usual, personal attacks are a staple of the Liar in Chief's many posts.
First, she calls Malkin a sour puss(pot meet kettle).
Then she goes on to complain about her lack of foreignn policy credentials(as if Ellen knows anything about foreign policy).
Of course, Ellen KNOWS that Malkin hates a whole bunch of people and groups. ANd how does she know this? Because she thinks we are to take her word for it.
Just the usual garbage spilling from the Lovely, looney, lying loads of dog squeeze.

Just checked out Patrick's blog to find that even Patrick doesn't blog there anymore, he deleted all of his posts. He probably is embarrased to have John T as a poster there.
I found JT taking a slam at me, I must respond:
I would have enjoyed seeing the look on Mr. Cankleslovakia's face when he learned that BOR topped 4 million viewers yesterday. Ashley | 09.16.09 - 6:58 pm
I don't think the dumbass Ashley realizes there is 300+ million people in the US.
from "Buster" John T.
Apparently, John T is feebly attempting to downplay FNC's sensational ratings by comparing to the US Population. Gee John T, if FNC is so insignificant, why do you and the rest of the bassets spend all of your life attacking it?
What it really boils down to is that John T simply does not understand the significance of the ratings.
He is too stupid to understand the impact of good ratings on the revenue generation for the network.
He is too stupid to understand the impact of good ratings on the longevity of the shows receiving those good ratings.
He's too stupid to see how those ratings, and the revenue they help generate, contributes to the personal wealth of those involved, making them want to stay longer, hence good longevity.
I'm pleased about FNC's ratings because of what that will mean to its programming. John T is simply too stupid to understand that.
BOR - 12 years and continuing.  
Hannity - 12 years and continuing.
Shep, Bret, Beck.....looking forward to long careers with FNC.
John T and Patrick.....looking forward to long careers in the food service industry.

I notice that John T's or Anisha's little sub blog of Patrick's blog has the slogan:
"We read Johnny Dollars Place so you do have to"
Is this because they believe that since they read J$P, everyone else should too?
Is this because they are too stupid to realize that they misspelled "don't" and haven't realized it since they created the page?

If, by "it", you mean anything there is in existence on Earth and in the heavens, anything there has been in existence on Earth and in the heavens, or anything there will be in existence on Earth and in the heavens, I agree.

john t has taking slams at me also. I mine as well respond:
johnt: I do KNOW that not all of the google search results have beck hating McCain. hell the first page has the most recent Beck comments about McCain. and as for Beck voting for McCain, he only did it to get SARAH Palin in the white house, I searched so I know. And has for getting Bob into blogging, WRONG CHRIS. If you actually read what Bob wrote about his freind chris, then you would know, it WASNT ME!! its good to vent.

John T willingly goes to a blog created by a guy banned from the newshounds after calling for Bill O'Reilly's rape and murder. That pretty much says it all.

In one of his posts there as Al Frankenstein, Patrick acknowledged the BOR thing by writing (I paraphrase) "You're damn right I called for BOR to be raped and murdered". The li'l feller says it twice, and the idiot John T still wants to play there.

Before I go on to comment about FNC's ratings, please allow me to remind the haters (that same group who a year ago were clamoring over Cankles the Clown's increasing ratings; particularly in "the demo"), let me remind the haters that these ratings translate into revenue for FNC and contribute towards longevity of the existing program.
Now my commentary.
Poor little Cankles - BOR has reached a point up, and Cankles has reached a point down, where BOR has more viewers in "the demo" than Cankles has in total viewers. BOR has almost 3x as many people in the demo as does Cankles, and BOR has almost 4x as many viewers overall.  
That is a major achievement for BOR and a new low for Olby.

That is something I I would enjoy seeing.

I see anisha responded to me, so I'll respond back:
my "little" blog is doing good.What anisha doesn't realize is, that I have been promoting my blog.( I do visit a lot of sites) as for the lack of comments, oh well, whatever. I've had the blog for about 3 months. I really don't except huge amounts of traffic or comments. As for commenting there, I don't have anyway to track IP addresses. they dont interest me that much.
oh BTW, thanks for reading J$ place

No sooner do I mention how far ahead John T is in the 2009-10 "Who's dumber, Patrick or John T" contest, then the l'il feller comes out swinging!!
On his blog which he abandoned and deleted all of his Al Frankenstein posts, the li'l feller has resurrected as "whoisjohnnydollar".
"I see little Ashley is going on about this blog, she is all upset that you have as many posters as Dollars Dump does. She goes on and on about Grammer and syntex while never answering a question posed to her. She is a typical member of the echo chamber all bark and no bite. She just bows down to Johnny hoping someday that she can have her name in his weekly lie fest "Why I kiss Fox News' Ass week in Review" Hey Dollar, tell us why we have not hears about acorn's suit against Fox News on you site today, or the fact that Glen Beck lost more advertisers, soon all he will have is 2 minutes of commercials from Smilin Bob the Enzyte guy or as some like to say Ashely's idol."
So much material for the contest, but let's look at a couple of tidbits:
"She goes on and on about Grammer and syntex while never answering a question posed to her.  
When, oh when, will the li'l feller realize that Grammer is an actor and Grammar is something which the little guy cannot master. Also, it's syntax not syntex. The li'l feller would know that if he wasn't stupid.
" Hey Dollar, tell us why we have not hears about acorn's suit against Fox News on you site today, "
Once again, the li'l feller shows us he cannot spell, but we understand....they are big words for him, heard and your. The li'l feller has trouble with words exceeding two letters in length. But, I digress, the point here is that the li'l feller has no grasp of the facts. Fox News is not being sued by Acorn. The li'l feller would know that if he wasn't stupid.
Those li'l fellerisms along with his bonehead claims yesterday about Olbermann having a pulitzer prize and Dr. Tiller committing suicide, I'm afraid for John T that the li'l feller has pulled way way way ahead in the dumb contest.

Not only is Patrick Einstein wrong--Fox News has not been sued by ACORN--but even if we give him this much that there is a suit, just not against fox, then he's still lying. I have a link up today all about that lawsuit.
No question that Patrick, aka the lil feller, is insane, dangerous, and dishonest. What a combination!
PS: Now he's befouling our thread by posting threats against me, something about a picture he wants taken off. I have no idea what he's talking about. I haven't posted a picture of anything today.

Little Patrick, I let that thru to answer it. You don't have to address your other tissue of lies that you posted today.
I have no control over the avatars. They are part of the haloscan service. For that matter I don't even know that they're your kids. And trust me, your word isn't going to cut it on that score. So I can't "get it off now" because the avatars are hosted by haloscan, not me; I can't change them because you make an unsubstantiated claim, in fact I can't change them at all. Clear now?
