MSNBC’s Al Sharpton … Angry, But Dull

It’s almost funny on those rare occasions I watch MSNBC seeing the hosts rip into Republicans and the Republican party.

Ummm folks one small problem … it’s Democrats that control both the Senate and the White House.

The channel’s latest hire, Al Sharpton, changes his playbook about as often as my father changed his lesson plans when he was a teacher … that is to say never.

Al Sharpton

My old man was a successful and popular teacher, though … and if it ain’t broke …you know the rest.

Al Sharpton, on the other hand has baggage and has never given a Republican a fair shake.

Sharpton is also a pastor that does not speak out against abortion and seems to believe that government handouts, rather than real economic opportunity, is the best course of action.

Sharpton is also not particularly telegenic and has to work on pronouncing names … though Maria Bartiromo can be a toughie.

And if he is just going to knock Republicans each and every show that won’t make him any different than the other MSNBC hosts.

It would be interesting to see Sharpton knock Democrats instead for waste, fraud, corruption and the continuing blight of inner-cities.

Somehow, I don’t see Al doing that, however.

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

On Thin Ice: Are NHL Owners Bargaining In Good Faith With Players?
I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
