    Apples and oranges.

    What's your point? You don't think there are enough threads for us to go at each other about?

    What are we supposed to be doing...JUDGING who was better? Man, all we here on this board know about either guy was what we see on TV or read in the papers.

    I do know they're both dead...may they both rest in peace.

    Russert,
    Closet Liberal but a good one, very inteligent, likeable but not one of those sneaky sore losing "phony liberals" like Rather, Matthews, Olberman, Lauer, Couric etc, etc. I liked Russert.

    Carlin,
    Professional "ball buster" who found out he could make millions "saying dirty words" in public, he had his own following mostly people who hate Law And Order (unless they are getting mugged) people who don't like America simply because it is America, Junkies also loved him, dip sh!t hippies adored him as did the wine & cheese limo liberals (phony's) but his biggest fans were the anti establishment double standard "PHONY"S"

    Example Of Phonyism:
    People at a "Carlin Performance" would gush, fawn, giggle and roll in the aisle's when Carlin said the word "F-ck" (we can't even say it here) while all this gayety was going on in the theatre with Carlin F-cking this and F-cking that, if I were to get up and go out to the Candy Counter and said to the little girl who works there "hi, may I have a Snicker Bar and a F-cking Coke" they would throw me out of the building.

    Without the word "f-ck" Carlin was nothing.
    May They Both R.I.P.

    I take it Carlin went over your head. Funny that you say fuck probably more than he ever did.

    People think Russert was an "objective" journalist because he voted democrat (I'll assume that's true) but didn't appear overly liberal as a journalist. That's not objectivity, he was just a centrist, and his political bent was just as apparent as anyone elses. The fact that he didn't ask questions the left wanted answered is just as much of a bias as anything. That's not a knock on him, I just can't stand it when people conflate the myth of objectivity with centrism (not a real word but what the hey).

    I know and instaed of getting money for saying it I get called a dirty old man (phony)

    Carlin didn't go over my head and he was very good at what he did (ball busting)

    How come you can post the word "****" and I can't, I have to leave a letter out, is it because I'm a neo con?

    Honestly Harry, you make me laugh pretty hard sometimes, I bet you could make a buck out of it.

    And only when you truly appreciate George Carlin can you use the word "fuck" without censorship;)

    I did like Carlin, I think I mentioned in another post about my "phony mother in law" she told me she liked Carlin so I asked her if she wanted a "f-cking hot dog" and she wouldn't speak to me for 6 months, she told my wife I was a filthy pig, my wife said "I know it"

    Ann Coulter sells millions of books doing the same thing "ball busting", good luck to them....

    Judging from the OP, it probably had something to do with Jesus.

    not exactly the bareback I meant...but that first one is VERY troubling...and I'm not even a "christian"...but that's scary.

    The second picture is from the Creationist Museum in Cincinnatti. They want little kids to believe that humans might have been able to ride dinosaurs so they can grow up to be big kids who believe that crap....EARLY IMPRINTING...planting the seeds of stupidity.
