A Good Point

This seems to be par for the course with that Obama character (and the entire Democrat establishement for that matter):

McCain to Obama: You’ll meet with Iran but not Petraeus?

Truth be known, Obama would feel much more comfortable in the presence of a cutthroat Muslim fanatic than he would with an American military hero. Such are the times.

What? There Are Other Channels?

I happened to be reading TV Guide the other night and came upon an article that listed what a particular magazine columnist thought should be the top five list of 2008 TV dramas and the top five comedies for the year. It struck me that I'd never watched any of the ten shows (Okay, I watched part of one Ugly Betty episode and part of one 30 Rock show). I had never even heard of half of them. Such are the changing times.

Part of that change:
May Ratings: FNC Stays On Top
Mediabistro

For the 77th consecutive month, FNC [Fox News Network] finished first in total day and prime time ratings during May. FNC was the sixth highest rated cable network on all of basic cable during prime time for the month (CNN and MSNBC finished 19th and 26th) and the seventh rated network in total day (CNN and MSNBC were 19th and 27th).

FNC also had 11 out of the top 13 programs in cable during the month in Total Viewers. The O'Reilly Factor was the #1 program in cable news for the 90th consecutive month, and saw gains in Total Viewers year-to-year (26%).

Amercia's Newsroom (9-11amET) was up 30% year-to-year, with the program averaging more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined during the time period.

Meanwhile, On the Record with Greta Van Susteren has been #1 for 73 consecutive months in Total Viewers while Hannity & Colmes has been #1 in its timeslot for 54 consecutive months. (link)
I have Fox News on right now in the background - a rerun of Brit Hume's show from last night.

Network evening broadcasts? The ones my family always gathered in front of the TV to watch together many years ago? A faded memory.

It didn't have tyo be this way.

A Sentiment Shared By Many

Apparently the owner of this restaurant in North Versailles, PA has gained a reputation for his ... creative pylon sign that stands out in front of his establishment. A reputation he seems to be cultivating:

Direct and to the point, I'd say.

It May Not Be The Ideal Circumstance

Yes, there is the issue (actually, all kinds of issues) of a white parent adopting a black baby.

And yes, this kid will have a slut for a mother.

But can anyone argue that the little guy won't be a whole lot better off being raised here in the good old USA as opposed to his native Malawi?
