    In my ‘hood, ya know it’s Halloween when you hear Thriller or some version of it at least 3x or more! I swear, I heard Thriller on the radio when I went in to work and when I left. Have you tried NOT to do the Thriller dance when the song comes on? Shoot, I was driving with one hand, dancing with the other…lol

    I mean, I didn’t learn the whole dance as a teenager just to not perform it cause I’m driving 😉

Don’t laugh, I really am good at shooting down the stupid Dems with awesome gotcha questions that don’t seem to bother them one bit, but I keep on trying to find the right buttons to push because I’m a REPORTER for FOX, dammit! The best fair and balanced news there is. Koolaid? Fuck no! I didn’t drink the Koolaid! Here…just look at how frazzled I got Carney one day. I”m so freaking clever…I just love myself, all by myse…oh, wait….the mike’s on? Shit. I mean shoot! Anyway, just look at this walk down memory lane…..kicking Dem ass and taking names, baby!

AAHHH….don’t you just love that perpetual smirk on my face? Swear, that’s come in handy more times than I can tell you, Lizza… Keeps them guessing when I don’t know WTF I’m talking about!!

          Yes, yes Ed. I was so thrilled the other day when you stumped him good, that I couldn’t sleep for a week.

          And as I was telling our good buddy Jon Karl, the media needs more people like us – to bring back objectivity and truth in reporting. Too much bias in the news these days, and it’s all Obama’s fault.

      Ed buddy, hate to break it to ya but you ain’t that good lookin’ which ain’t gonna work AT ALL on FOX. Take a look at me – there’s LOTS of good pictures of me (and if you can’t find them I’ll be happy to send you a few of my best from the photo shoot this weekend). Here’s what I think you need to do since the only qualification needed at FOX is looks. (They must have had the idea that you just had dental surgery before they hired you and that was what accounted for that chipmunk face of yours.) I guess that’s not post surgery swelling though huh? Ouch. I say go on a damn diet and see if you can lose about 10lbs — but in the face, ok? Otherwise, you’re toast like I’m going to be in NH goshdarnit. Here’s lookin’ at ya kid! LOL!

    NYT’s Maureen Dowd here:

    I tells you pipo (excuse the tipo & gurama …me still stoned), that “Marijuana Mile-High Experiment” was swell;

    now, I sure I can use that as an excuse to continue my perpetual disrespect of that WH occupant who has refused to pay me any attention – or as I routinely call him “Obambi” or “Holywood starlet”;

    I have told you many times how cold and aloof Obambi is …..; you see how he is treating the kids “trick or treating” at the WH (fotos above capture this arrogance”;

    don’t even get me started on Obambi’s wife (who I secretly envy);

    Why can’t weak & girlie Obambi be as bold, manly & strong as Quarantine Christie or Good Hair Perry??? Why can’t he understand that he too needs to obnoxious & rude to ordinary voters & a bully of Medical Workers Dealing with Ebola?

    Not Halloween related but Michael Grimm who was counted O-U T after the public threat to throw a NY reporter off the Senate balcony, not to mention his upcoming trial in January for fraud, theft, you name it……
    That Mike Grimm is leading his Dem challenger, Dominic Recchia by 19 points and the NY pundits are pretending astonishment.

    Here is the truth about that race. It is Staten island, the only Repub part of NYC and it is mostly white.

    In the last debate, in his closing statement, Rep Grimm said that he would support affordable housing, sure he would, but only done the right way. Careful about “density.” That’s all it took. A veiled promise to keep the population as it is. From losing to a commanding lead in one fell swoop.

    Embarassed pundits are spinning that suddenly Grimms opponent is not liked as people get to know him. Making the turnaround Recchia’s failure. Anything but accurately defining the racial fears defining the race.

        You won’t need luck on Tuesday ….. just look at it this way. We’re at the crossroads. Down one road is a European centralized bureaucratic socialist welfare system in which politicians and bureaucrats define the future. Down the other road is a proud, solid, reaffirmation of American exceptionalism. We know which road you are standing on and we know which road the people want to travel.

    – those Outsiders (you know, the Obamas) used this evening’s trick or treat event at the WH to distribute candy to kids which looks so much like the “stuff” I bought in Denver & which made me feel very high;

    – my sources say that 47% Mitt & Ms Ann would have had decorations made up silver & diamonds instead of this “common-man” stuff … just saying;

    Hey Mitch Turtle (aka, 4MoreFor44), how does it feel to tables turned on you so that the sole goal of a female KY Dem Candidate is to make you a …term (30 yrs) senator?

    See this is the stuff that makes us crazy here in the GOP. This is just another example of the liberal agenda of using legalities versus good ole boy ways of winning an election. This Alison girl has a lotta nerve running against the minority leader. How would he continue to lead minorities if he lost? That’s a question those smart liberals never ask do they?

    Hey you idiot Obama lovers, it’s Rick Scott, governor of Florida…yeah that Rick Scott. When I was here earlier, I told you peons I would be back.
    I would have been earlier, but I could tell some of you had some electronical devices, which I told you was against the rules. Hey, I see a hair dryer over there, watch it or I’ll leave.

    Bad enough I have to put up with this crap from that weakling Crist who, apparently, faints if the temperature is over 65 degrees. And he wants to be governor of Florida. Hey Crist boy, it gets hot here in this state.

    Anyway, I hear you peons have been saying some nasty things about me and the lack of Medicaid expansion in the sunshine state. Especially somebody named Jovie. By the way, is that person related to this weird japa person whose ID i am logging in under. Weird names you guys have here. I bet you’re all illegal aliens from beyond Mars or something. Well, I’ll see you never vote in my state.

    Anyway, about that Medicaid, see the reason we don’t expand it is because we don’t need it. Florida is the Sunshine State, and that means plenty of Vitamin D. So people are all healthy here to begin with.

    So just sit down and shut up (I learned that from my buddy Chuck up in New Jersey, kinda catchy).

    So anyway, you guys have a good Halloween. After all, its the only good thing you’re going to have for a while. BWAAAAAAAAAAAHHH.

    Tavis Smiley reporting late! I was busy hanging out with my new buddy BillO at Fox. Bill and I agree that Obama has done more to increase hunger and poverty among my Black brothers and sisters. Obama has been bad news for the Black, upward mobility, grifters. Exhibit #1: ME! Ever since Obama was elected President i’ve heard a rough time convincing shady companies, like Wells Fargo Bank, to donate money to my my “Black Agenda Conferences.” Why? I tell you why: Obama passed that so called Consumer Protection Agency aimed at stopping predatory lending by businesses that were supporting my Black Agenda conferences. Exhibit #2: My brother and friend, the great Dr., philosopher, prophet, Dr. West are no longer being invited to speak during Black History Month. This means we are loosing thousands of dollars of speaking fees because most Black people love Obama. In the days of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush I was guaranteed millions of dollars to finance my Black Agenda Conferences. Now the only way I can make some money is to go on talk shows like MTP and the O’Reilly Factor to expose what a terrible president Obama has been to Black people. I know people here at TOD despise me along with my brother, Cornel West, the great Doctor, prophet, and the #1 Black intellectual in the entire world. If Obama had invited Dr. West and I to his inaugurals, we would have shared with him our plan to totally end Black poverty in the first two years of his presidency. I am absolutely convinced that if Hillary Clinton had been elected president, instead of Obama, she would have ended Black poverty in two to four years. I also know for a fact that Hillary would have invited me and the Great Doctor, Philosopher, Prophet , Dr. West, to her inaugural. By the way, why didn’t Obama, like Dr. West, go to Ferguson, Missouri to lead the protest against the killing of an innocent Black teenager and risk being arrested? I tell you, Obama is not black enough. He is — as my brother and BFF, Dr. West, says– a sell-out plutocrat. More importantly, Obama has mesmerized Black people, who overwhelmingly supported in two election, making it difficult for people like me to convince our corporate financiers that we have the support of the Black community.

      This validates my sentiment that President Obama is the most successful food stamp president in American history. I would like to be the most successful paycheck president in American history.

      Tavis – you can ride my poverty tour bus anytime.
