Of course he cannot:
 
point out the lie
explain why it is a lie
effectively refute whatever it is you may have said.
 
Gotta give the l'il feller credit though, with a mere eight words, he clearly shows his incompetence and his obsession with both you and me.  
 
He associates thongs with you and women's breasts with me. Sounds like the little one has more than just a mancrush.

He's actually complaining about a post I put on my site regarding how unions hurt companies. Being a union member, he was somewhat disturbed about my post. Of course he is always disturbed.
 
You are correct Ashley, he appears to have issues about thongs and breasts.

Perhaps the l'il feller ought to spend some of his time actually refuting your post about unions. He should list all the reasons why unions are good for companies. Of course, even he can't think of any.

The article "How Fox News defies ratings gravity" by Jeff Bercovici is an absolute must read.

These people have some serious mental issues to conclude that what Santorum said was "condescendiing".
 
He presented factual information and the praised Obama.
 
Of course the Heinous Hound Hens are soooooooo sensitive.

I doubt "Big Ed" has a three-year contract with MSNBC. Good article about it.

Speaking of nattering nabobs and ratings declines... last night, I turned on Countdown and Keith was into some diatribe involving the history of the Whig Party.
 
I'm not a typical tv viewer, in the sense that I generally find such trivia fairly interesting. Not this. Dude went on forever, with seemingly no point. You could literary hear his most fervent fans clicking their remotes to another show.
 
Olbermann gets away with anything and everything among his peers in the industry, most recently his calling on the public to boycott FNC and everyone who watches FNC on grounds of 'moral rectitude'....when FNC is HIS employer's biggest competitor... , but I don't think he's going to get away with increasingly being a one trick pony who bores his audience to tears.

B - seems like the l'il feller enjoys your blog. More comments apparently in response to yours and my posts here at J$P. After sorting through his hatred and homophobic comments, an undeniable fact is revealed.
 
He still could not provide one specific reason why unions are good for companies. As I said, even he can't think of any. He also cannot provide specific information into other charges he leveled. But, what else can we expect from a newshounds reject.

From Joe hearts Mika:
 
Mika wrote, "When I began "Morning Joe," some of the top anchors in the business warned me to stay away from a conservative Republican from the South. I told them all without hesitation that after five minutes of being on the set with him, I could tell Joe was the most intellectually open newsman I had met."
 
Does it every occur to people venturing theories as to why FNC does so well, that the biggest reason may be that FNC doesn't condescend to the audience. That it doesn't look down on them or pretend that they're victimized waifs who need their protection.
 
Sheesh!

Hey Mika, which "top anchors in the business" smeared conservative Republicans from the south. More NYC or Inside The Beltway jibberish from pinhead news reader elites. Had to get that off my chest! Back to cable news.

and once again Mr. Czechoslovakia can't even beat the BOR rerun.
 
A year ago, I was reading so many comments at Media Bistro, here, and other places that by now, Keithy would be number one.
 
In reality, on my levels, he is just a number two.

Well, for over a year I wondered if MSNBC/NBC news pulled Obama's strings or if Obama pulled MSNBC/NBC's strings. It's a long unanswered question for me.
 
Brian Williams bowing to the President today answered my question.

Interesting that Greta is willing and eager to interview one of her husbands "friends".
 
Ol' Haggis was furious the last time Greta interviewed one of her husbans friends, he must be just as furious about this one.
