Off to J$P hibernation for a bit. A couple of weeks out from American cable "news" and my perspective is not all that fresh. I return to the States for a couple of weeks in February/March, and I'll be back. Some good commentary here this term. In all candor, the constant News Hounds focus is so terribly dull and dreary, and without any clear purpose, but the commentators who don't obsess over that side issue have a great deal to offer. So, Happy Harvest Festival, whatever form that takes, Good Christmas, Bonne Annee, a great Fasching and a holy Lent. I'll see you all again midway through tha last.

"Off to J$P hibernation for a bit."
How disappointing. But before you leave, or when you come back, I will require that you answer the question from yesterday: how were you able to watch and comment on the Glenn Beck interview 12 hours before it was posted? Perhaps you will need a couple of weeks to formulate a response.

From the Chief Liar at News HOunds
Beck’s “questions” are some of the most vile hate mongering known to mankind....
Vile? Hat mongering? Has she checked her own site?
The unstable Beck is 100% crazy, unhinged, demented........
The Fox clowns have a nasty habit of hiring lunatics as talk show hosts. Just look at Billy and Hannocchio.
Weasel words from a weasel man.  
Whoopi said it BEST"Lying Sack of DogShit".......
Stay classy, Ellen.

E.D. Hill Shocker;
The fetching Ms Hill just announced on "The View"( she is filling in as guest host) that she will be undergoing a radical double mastectomy as a prophylactic measure against breast cancer. which is rampant in her family. Hill said she carries the gene that all but assures she will have a breast cancer. Her sister and mother have had mastectomys. I have no other source for this information, as she just now broke the news as I was viewing.

I thought the Couric-Beck interview was a good one.  
As a former Mormon myself I appreciated her question to him about his beliefs and how does that shape his thinking etc (paraphasing there)
I found his answer very insightful as to who he is.  
He certainly has tapped into part of the public that is very frustrated with DC as a whole.  
I do wish he hadn't left the "white culture" unanswered, but can well understand why he wished he had better phrased the orginal comment.
Ah well. But all in all I felt it was a decent interview for both.

Fox News.Com Videos Include "Hot ForThe Teacher" Soft Core?
Priscilla the Plagairist is on one of her so called porn rants.
Guess her tape hasn't arrived from Hustler yet.

Greta just exposed how "Stuck On Stupid Acorn Has Become" opens up discovery process for defendents in this suit & mandates Baltimore Acorn affiliate open it's books to all. Now that is transparency & let the sun shine on their activities.

I'm so sad to read this news about E.D. Hill!
That she's talking about it and dealing it is testament to her sassy self!
It's not my intent to trivialize the step she finds it necessary to take when I say that breast reconstructive surgery is nothing short of miraculous nowadays and that E.D. has always had an enviable narrow hipped athletic shape. Post-surgery, she'll still look every bit the beautiful blond with the teenager figure that she has always looked.

E.D. is certainly one of the most beautiful women on FNC, and with her personality and friendly face that will never change.
Barney Frank is always the big loser on BOR. Considering his "preferences", maybe he enjoys the pain.

Re: CNN's turn in the dog house.
This White House is the biggest bunch of crybabies I have seen in my 63 years on the planet.
