Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, January 14, 2010

What's a poor boy to do when work gets in the way of real life?

You keep moving forward. I love what I do, but sometimes the hours can get to you. It also is difficult when you do not get the cooperation of your vendors...

OK, all done.



Did not watch live, but had to go to foxnews.com to see the video of Sarah "I can see Russia from my front porch" Palin's first appearance on the O'Reilly Factor. I was floored by her declaration when talking about the 60 minutes piece done on her the Sunday before, which you can hear, HERE and finding the link to "Palin Fascination". About 5 minutes into the chat, Palin states that the American people are tired of the one-sided media outlets and that is why they are coming to Fox News!

No, I am not kidding. The woman is delusional. She also spoke about being part of a "tea party" in Nashville. Now, if she is to be taken as a serious analyst -

Sorry...I had to stop laughing at that last statement before I could continue

- how can she be involved in these political statements. O'Reilly even asks if she will be running in 2012 on the Tea party Ticket and - in one of her more lucid moments - states that, at this time there is no Tea Party Ticket...

So, makes me think even the Republicans realize she has no power to run on their ticket...

Hell, Fox News is going to get grand ratings when she is on...it is very similar to a scene recreated in the movie "Private Parts" where NBC Radio executives talk about a poll they took to find out why Stern's ratings were so high.

In the poll they found out that people who loved Stern listened for an hour a day. The reason most given was "so they could hear what he said next".

They also found that those who hated Stern, listened TWO hours a day. The reason? "To hear what he would say next"!!!!!

Same thing will be happening with Palin, until the haters get tired of the drivel.



Sending wishes to those in the devastated country of Haiti. What a horrible thing.

The worst disasters always seem to hit the poorest countries. The pictures of the destruction bring chills to me.



Entertainment News...Conan O'Brien has told NBC he WILL NOT move his show to 12:05am to allow them to put Jay Leno on at 11:30 for a half hour. GOOD FOR YOU CONAN..it is evident that Leno has lost all appeal with this new show which has crashed NBC's nightly ratings, the affiliate ratings for local news, the late night ratings and also the morning ratings - as people fall asleep with another station on and do not switch over to NBC for news.

Ride into the sunset Jay.

A musical about Barack Obama's "Yes we can" election campaign premieres in Germany this weekend, including love songs by the president to his wife Michelle and duets with Hillary Clinton.

Even John McCain and Sarah Palin are given stage time, with actors portraying the losing Republican candidates and belting out songs on their behalf.

In all, 30 singers, actors and dancers are to perform in the musical "Hope — the Obama Musical Story" when it opens at the Jahrhunderthalle concert hall in Frankfurt in a bilingual mix of English and German. The audience may recognize that many songs quote from the politicians' stump speeches during the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign.

Freakin' incredible!

  2. You know, I'm not a Republican and have had some serious issues with a lot of them, but even I have to wonder how they can express any type of support for Sarah Palin. I have a friend that is a very intelligent person and he thinks she would make a good President. I'm just astounded, don't even take into account she's a Republican, if she was Democrat she would still be just as stupid and offensive. It's insane.

     
  3. Bond Says:
  4. I have always voted across party lines depending upon the candidates and might have even given McCain some thought...until he selected this dangerous woman...yes dangerous.

     
  5. You know, in reading your previous commenter's comment (??? uh...wha???), I had to suppress a smile and a grunt because as you know, I'm married to a very intelligent person who loves Sarah Palin and can't understand why I don't. Whenever her name is brought up, I smile vacantly and ignore the rest of the comments until he's moved on to something else. Sigh.

    Your post contained subjects, with the exception of the note on Haiti, that hold absolutely ZERO interest to me, BUT, I read through its entirety because I love you. How's THAT for friendship? *smile*

     
  6. ...I'll tell you why Sarah Palin is so popular: forget the politics,the woman is remarkably attractive, built like a brick s**t house,has a most engaging smile, is rife with self-esteem, speaks in a positive tone and is totally unpredictable. She is not about politics; she is about charisma...

     
  7. Dianne Says:
  8. Phfrankie hit the nail on the head about Sarah
    she would have better suited to evangelism than politics
    then again with the right there is really little difference

     
  9. Mags Says:
  10. I have often been heard saying the work gets in the way of real life. However, being laid off for 10 months sort of shut me up...real life can't happen without work! (Still...somedays I feel that way.)

    I can't believe Sarah Palin actually said that about one sided news. Are you serious?!?! That woman makes me crazy. We need some better women in politics. Geez.

     
  11. Jay Says:
  12. Sarah Palin and Jay Leno need to both ride off into the sunset. She's an idiot and he's a lying, backstabbing A-hole.

     
  13. Patti Says:
  14. Yep, work does get in the way of real life. Even if we enjoy it!

    The devastation in Haiti is truly unbelievable. Part of the problem is due to a lack of building codes and proper construction, I would say.

     
  15. JohnH985 Says:
  16. I agree. I'm registered as an Independent and I try to vote for who I think is best, not based on party lines. I liked McCain before the election, I think he wanted the job so bad he did things he would not have done or said before. One of the promising Republicans, often mentioned as a candidate for the next Presidental race is the governor from my home state, Bobby Jindal, who so far I think is doing a good job.

     
  17. Bond Says:
  18. SONGBIRD: Nancy and I are not riding the same political bus either...so I get it and you are wonderful for reading without caring

    PHFRANKIE: Then maybe she should try stripping over politics! LOL

    DIANNE: I had a better idea

    MAGS: I was out for 20 months so I do get it too..

    JAY: So, you have no opinion on the subject then?

    PATTI: It is very sad indeed

    JOHNH: I do not know a lot about him other than his refusal to take money to help take care of unemplyment

     
  19. Travis Says:
  20. Just a rambling thought or two...

    Isn't it up to the network to decide at what time a program will air? Doesn't The Tonight Show belong to NBC? Aren't Mr Leno and Mr O'Brien employees of the network?

    I guess if NBC wants to shuffle its prime time and late night line ups again, then that's within their right. It's NBC's money after all. And if Mr O'Brien has a problem with it, he can certainly say that to NBC. And I guess then NBC can say "Thank you very much for your service and don't let the peacock bite you in the ass on your way out the front gate".

    NBC had ruined its prime time programming long before they put Mr Leno on at the earlier hour. I don't know what the right decision is between Mr Leno and Mr O'Brien, but I know I miss Must See TV.
