One has to wonder? Is there a sign in the MSNBC Newsroom that states?
 
"If You can't find the facts to back up you're statement, just lie!"
 
BTW Mr. Dollar, 'The Most Feared Man On Cable TV' was back on CNBC about a week ago.

Watch in total awe Mr. Dollar,

For your reading pleasure. Poor Patrick has latched onto my blog and decided to attack you all from afar. He really is that much of a coward. I will toy with him for a short time and then dump his posts.
 
I cleaned it up a bit. He really must be off his meds again.
 
This is for the Dollarites
Dollar, tell the truth who your emploer is
Chimeri, can an human being actually be that obsessed with Billo,or are you just the f****** retarded.
Cee, what the f*** are you talking about
Cecelia, you are just a pissed of up tight conservative C***.

That Tanya Acker woman sure has her talking points down. Since when is it the job of government to "give" people opportunities? How about they get off their dead asses and work make their own oppotunities. You know, like doing whatever it takes instead of waiting for the government to give you a handout.

I had a close encounter of the Brian Kilmeade kind this morning. Very early today, 5 AM Pacific, I took my daughters to see the American Idol press tour this morning outside of the Nokia Theater. My girls were thrilled to see Adam Lambert and Kris Allen. We watched Brian interview both guys.

Agree with Mike C, a big :+: for the HLN mocks Olby link.
 
I only wish I could be watching the look on Mr. Czechoslovakia'a face the moment he saw that.

I truly believe he is mentally ill and has serious anger issues.

Insert Witty Name Here
Prediction: Olbermann will surely have some kind of a reply to the HLN Nancy Grace ad. Suddenly the overall ratings will become the most important and he'll point out how he is ahead there and he'll huff "YOU MA'AM ARE A LIAR! YOU SHOULD RESIGN!". And he may even play that clip of the guy saying Nancy Grace is a joke to further distract his addle-minded viewers.

The little guy repeatedly claimed on Newshounds that they (the hounds) "beat us", or he specifically beat us. For example
 
Guy's in all honesty we have beat them  
Posted by: Michael Weston on Sat 3.28 11:03pm  
 
You all have been beaten your one thread is owned by us
Posted by: Michael Weston on Sat 3.28 11:37pm  
 
He says he's beaten us, but his ongoing rage and childish rants against us clearly show that even he doesn't believe his own b.s.
 
He's a sad case, but we can expect him back at Newshounds, if he's not there already.

If Mr. Costanza therapy does not work, I recommend a transition to Ralph Kramden therapy:
 
"Pins and needles, needles and pins; it's a happy man that grins."

I checked Blackflon's blog and found another love letter from the l'il feller.
 
Trying to read and comprehend the incomprehensible rantings of the little guy can be quite a challenge. Is there anyone out there who can translate the little guy's writing from Imbecilic to English? Here is the passage of note:
 
"then I will all of those idiodic donservatives alone."

Wasn't Don Servative a head of one of the five families in the Godfather? Don Corleone, Don Barzini, Don Tataglia, Don Cuneo, and Don Servative?
 
Just thinkin.......

The preview for the upcoming Barney Frank segment on Beck looks quite promising!
 
Perhaps I ought to fasten my seat belt....

The Barney Frank segment wasn't much. The prize goes to Beck's closing comment, "Good Night, Barbara".

Yup, as expected, yet one more love letter from the little guy. Sorry Blackflon, but Patrick Michael Michael Baba David Caribou Barbie Eric Cartman Heckman wants to use your site because he can't post here.
 
Can't cut and paste the post, too vile, extremely homophobic rantings from the l'il feller.
 
Patrick - I have three words for you.
 
1) Eat
 
2) More
 
3) Bran
 
It should "straighten" you right out.

Tilde - We have to give her credit for being consistent. If those animals are brought to US soil, held prisoner and still not "charged", it will be interesting to see her response to that.
 
Olbermann turn on Obama?
 
Never going to happen.
