Rush is a bad mofo.

Who’s the other dude?

Spirit of 1776 on January 30, 2010 at 9:02 PM

Huh? This is it after waiting hours for something comment on?

Electrongod on January 30, 2010 at 9:02 PM

You GO, Rush! Looks like he really enjoyed himself, good for him.

OmahaConservative on January 30, 2010 at 9:03 PM

Sat nite. :)

AnninCA on January 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM

I didn’t know Rush is from Jersey. He is definitely The Situation. Obozo, not so much.

txag92 on January 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM

I like how obama acts like he has nothing to do with the demonizing of conservatives.

TTheoLogan on January 30, 2010 at 9:05 PM

“I went to the Republican House Caucus just yesterday to prove that I can go to my right once and awhile, but there’s no doubt that I have a stronger left hand.

And yet you still throw like a girl. We all saw the vid of your pitching prowess from the mound. Stick to politics d-bag, o wait, you suck at that too.

Geochelone on January 30, 2010 at 9:06 PM

DUKE SUCKS!

…and so does Barack Hussein Obama

I read through the whole 110 page paper on SPPI about the surface temperature problems waiting for something to post on. And this is what I get for my effort.
BTW the paper was well worth the read.

Who was that sitting next to Obowmao in the stands, Bill Ayers?

Maybe an open thread should be in order on Saturdays?

OmahaConservative on January 30, 2010 at 9:09 PM

OH FOR GOD’S SAKE!

Is it possible that we could have one thread that doesn’t have the filthy lying coward in the White House or his corrupt administration lurking somewhere in the background. Just one! Is that too much to ask?

SilverStar830 on January 30, 2010 at 9:06 PM

silver, you dipstick, the duke coach stood up to obama in the past, telling him to stop worrying about basketball and fix the economy.

TTheoLogan on January 30, 2010 at 9:09 PM

“I went to the Republican House Caucus just yesterday to prove that I can go to my right once and awhile, but there’s no doubt that I have a stronger left hand.”

*Obama’s Head*: “Keep it cool Barack, America doesn’t yet know how cool I am with jokes like this…it’s just the beginning…”

StevefromMKE on January 30, 2010 at 9:10 PM

Perhaps if we create a position called King America that has all the glory but no actual power, we could convince Obama to take it and let us elect someone else.

Get used to it, the Far Left National Socialists in the Donk Party want to be a part of every aspect of your life.

Chip on January 30, 2010 at 9:14 PM

Whenever he is awake, or thinking about it, or actually in a meeting he is never resting. The man is always creating (or saving) jobs…..or thinking about creating (or saving) jobs. If you don’t understand this then you are one dumb SOB.

jukin on January 30, 2010 at 9:15 PM

Go Rush Go! I am watching the Miss America competition because of Rush.

cubachi on January 30, 2010 at 9:16 PM

Pretty good sport, Rush is…

Especially since he can’t hear any new songs that his brain has not heard before he lost his hearing.

As far as the second clip goes…

I wonder if our soldiers in Afghanistan are able to enjoy the games as well.

Obama off at basketball games while 17 percent of Americans out of work. He is out of touch.

I am sure his lapdogs will have his back ….eh Fins?

I guess that’s what happens when you place your expectations to unobtainable levels.

heshtesh on January 30, 2010 at 9:21 PM

It appears to me the Ob*ma does pretty good without a teleprompter when not on the job. It’s almost like he speaks from the heart, that is not scripted, when he is doing something he enjoys. Nay..there can’t a connection.

Electrongod on January 30, 2010 at 9:21 PM

CWforFreedom on January 30, 2010 at 9:22 PM

As a Duke fan it was a horrible day. we get blown out by George Town and I am forced to watch that a-hole when I want to take a break and watch the game. He is a UNC fan too, I bet coach K hates him.

lavell12 on January 30, 2010 at 9:23 PM

Obama needs to get out more. Hardly ever see the guy.

JammieWearingFool on January 30, 2010 at 9:23 PM

Well,good to see I’m normal,I can dance as good as Rush,

Did you happen to notice when Gretchen Carlson from Fox and Friends introduced him, Rush seemed to receive the loudest applause from the audience.

redridinghood on January 30, 2010 at 9:24 PM

CWforFreedom on January 30, 2010 at 9:22 PM

Be careful. I mentioned awhile back about all the odd ‘do’s’ of GOP men. They all remind me of 1970′s on the golf course!

Someone pointed out it had to do with balding. :) I guess they are the Pelosi version, just male. They all have rugs or implants?

AnninCA on January 30, 2010 at 9:24 PM

Oh well, you guys just keep pursuing a radical fringe edge and poking fun at anyone who suggests different.
But this blog will be dead within 6 months.

Seriously.

AnninCA on September 18, 2009 at 2:37 PM

So HotAir will be dead in what, two more months?

If the CIC wants to keep using sports metaphors, as if he is some kind of athlete, we should point out that he is a phony and a fraud by virtue of the way he throws a baseball.

I had a pick up game yesterday with two brothas. One was 6 foot 7 from the NBA D-league; if you even know what that is. This dude is the last person to go around braggin’ about his skills. But barry is always talkin’ like he is baller. Real ballers don’t talk about it.

On the other hand, barry’s got nothin’ so he does, all the time.

Electrongod on January 30, 2010 at 9:31 PM

She threw a hissy “I’m gone for good” thing because she didn’t read the whole topic (she just looked at the picture) and started commenting, like a moron, about another topic. Saying again that we were, I don’t know, irrelevent because we didn’t like Reno, I mean Nepolitano, sleeping at the SOTU.
People called her on not reading the topic, jumping to conclusions about the topic, and she got mad.
Obviously didn’t last long.

I think the country is very much moderate, in the middle, and the blogs are dominated by both fringe ends.

Most people I know in real life would not be interested in either fringe side.

cubachi on January 30, 2010 at 9:16 PM

Me too. I enjoy this speedier format of this show (2 minutes only for the talent competition, etc). I also noticed that when they went to commercial after the swimsuit competition, the ladies were draped with a scarf around their hips, a tad more classy and modest, than just all lined up in their bikinis. Although they all looked very nice in them.

Some of these gals can really belt out a song. I think it is weird that the non-finalists are on stage in very casual clothes. I would prefer that they are dressed in something nicer. It looks out of place.

karenhasfreedom on January 30, 2010 at 9:39 PM

The only part of being president that this stool likes is meeting pro athletes and movie stars. He thows like a sissy la-la also.

“I went to the Republican House Caucus just yesterday to prove that I can go to my right once and awhile, but there’s no doubt that I have a stronger left hand,” Obama said.

Make that “once in a while”.

Dohbama went to law school? And GRADUATED??

He would not have been promoted from my 6th grade class. (My homeroom teacher also taught English – so we had more English and reading during our ‘free’ home room period.)

I like smart, even if I disagree. I have always been a sucker for great analytical skills.

The label stuff escapes me. It seems everyone flings those around willy-nilly, and it usually means, I disagree with you.

AnninCA on January 30, 2010 at 9:43 PM

I had to endure Obama during the game today. I’m not watching dear leader again.

AP, you should’ve thrown in some of the awesome tweets while Obama was color commenting (from memory):

whether you agree with his politics or not, that guy is cool

obama’s wit is amazing, he’s the coolest guy on the planet
