8:01 a.m. Mika sounds rather disingenuous complaining how Blago is using the media to make money and playing the media just before what was a 12 min segment to open the 8:00 hour totally on him.
8:08 a.m. Barnicle makes a great point; if Fitz waited then the seat would have been sold and you would have had by definition a corrupt person in the senate.
8:10 a.m Eugene Robinson “I’m a columnist do I want him to go away?” His answer is no.
Including commercials that means that likely 25% of the 8:00 hour was spent on blago. She could have “torn up” the story there is a precedent for that on the show.
8:18 a.m. Ron Paul is on the air preaching 3 things letting the markets work, and keeping the government bailouts away. Cutting spending and Taxes. Isolation. If you could divorce the final message from the others he would make a lot of sense.
8:38 a.m. How DARE McDonalds provide a meal at a low price when people are hurting financially and still make a profit.
8:40 a.m. Isn’t it a bit disingenuous to be on television telling people to shut off the TV and put away the computer when the show is offered on the Blackberry and as a podcast and on the web and with YouTube clips etc etc etc.
8:42 a.m. Hey tell you what lets eliminate electricity all together get back to a farming economy lose all that technology has given us and just break our backs to feed ourselves like the good old days. We will work like dogs and not have any time to do anything and do it 7 days but when we die from exhaustion we’ll look great!
8:58 a.m. Barnicle is wrong Paul did have an answer. He just didn’t like it. His answer was let the market work. They just didn’t like the answer.
