Keep Tony by the tale

Hello. I read your Web site’s e-news all the time. The Tennesseean? Yeah, right.

But could your paper stay on the May Town [Center] happenings? If you look at the remarks from your recent story about ol' Mr. G[iaratanna]., you got a lot of hits!

We need some way of hearing the news both for and against the politics of it all.

David Kemp, 37027

THE mantra of HOPE: Helping Out Obama's Pressure Political Endeavors!
He's moving boldly and swiftly towards a train wreck for our country.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 11:14

sid, he needed to be out pitching the Olympics in Chicago. our economy needs the money.

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 11:15

Sid, the country was already a trainwreck when he became President. I'm not surprised you don't understand that though. Add Sid to my previous posts.

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 11:28

I disagree Blanket. That was for the 2016 Olympics. It really would have minimal effect right now.

I think a better way to spend his time is addressing Afhganistan and employment. And no, I don't think that the jobs created for the Olympics seven years from now would significantly reduce unemployment this year.

I'd really like to see cross-country ballroom dancing added to the Olympics...
along with the involuntary luge.

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 11:42

Might as well give Ming Wang the damn gold. He can cut a rug and fix your vision at the same time.

Trust me, I'm going to the "Eye Ball"...

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 11:46

True that, gd. He's got Bart Gordon in his back pocket, too.
Could end up as another Tonya Harding incident.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 11:48

Junior Daley has been the Mayor of Chicago for the past 20 years, only his daddy served longer. Daddy was beating the skulls of hippies in '68, acorns don't fall too far from the old oak. The guy gives me the creeps.

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 11:49

Could be worse, Loner...can you say Mayor Tyne Daley?

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 11:51

Best part of Magnum Force was when she got whacked.

Or was it The Enforcer?

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 11:53

I think it was Magnum Force. I thought Clint was gonna whack her a couple of times.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 12:01

Cagney and Lacey sucked. A couple of viragos with huge penis envy issues.....IMHO.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 12:03

g, actually it would create jobs now. i have family in chicago and there were construction jobs contingent on whether or not the city would get the olympics.

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 12:05

Minimal Blanket, Construction jobs local to that economy, but it wouldn't make a dent in the overall economy.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 12:08

See the adon this page for "Obama Socialist"....just like the Obamacare poll, except the surgical skull cap is gone. So where's the Che Guevera beret?
I hope the NCP is soaking these professional zealots for these paid partisan attacks.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 12:14

Here's one ad you'll never see - the same ad only Obama is wearing a Yarmulke and the text asks, "Obama Zionist?" Now there's a poll I'd participate in.

By: BenDover on 10/2/09 at 12:16

Obama created the economic disaster we have now during the run-up to the election by promising to double the capital gains taxes, bankrupt the coal industry, rewrite NAFTA, and fund every social-welfare wet-dream he had on the backs of the evil rich people (translation 'stock holders'). Anybody with something to lose sold off their shares and went into hibernation waiting on the adults to be in charge again.

Further, he perpetuates the problem by not backing off of his leftist rhetoric and, indeed, doubling down on it by pushing a radically expensive social agenda that would make LBJ blush.

McCain wouldn't have been my first choice but better incompetence toward our favor vs. exuberance toward our demise.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 12:19

Obama created the economic disaster? Ben, put down the crack pipe!

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 12:35

I see, Ben, the mere threat of an Obama presidency caused the financial panic, ergo it's all Obama's fault not Bush's fault...sounds like the panic-stricken investors fulfilled their own prophecy. Those who made it to the exits first survived and saved their assets. Obama is their scapegoat and you are chanting their chant.

Lehman Bros. was one of the first to make a run for it, apparently the company made Alliyah to Israel on or about Sept. 15, 2008; some say they took 400 billion in assets with them. Others refute that and claim that only anti-Semitic conspiracy theorists would believe such a story. Something's fishy here and needs to be investigated. Barclay Capitals was formerly Lehman Bros. Israel, I'd probably start my investigation right there.

By: dargent7 on 10/2/09 at 12:46

How about that David Letterman?

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 12:48

yes, he had sex with that woman. and a few others.

LOL!

if it's consenting adults - WHO CARES?

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 12:48

Missed it, D7. What's up?

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 12:55

I think he may have f**ked Conan O'Brien at some point.

By: sidneyames on 10/2/09 at 1:00

I disagree Blanket. That was for the 2016 Olympics. It really would have minimal effect right now.

I think a better way to spend his time is addressing Afhganistan and employment. And no, I don't think that the jobs created for the Olympics seven years from now would significantly reduce unemployment this year.

Gdiafante you are so correct. And I think Michelle bragadocious statement "we are taking no prisoners" wasn't helpful. I think the Olympic committee doesn't want to be pushed around boldly and swiftly by Op'rah, Michelle and BO.

So now, who's fault is it, anyway? I know. George Bush did it. Of course, the olympic committee refused Chicago because of George. That's probably what O'bama will say, anyway?

And now can we move on to important WORLD TOPICS? When is O'bama going to get his royal fannie into the OVAL office to read and work? OVAL: O'bama's Very Valient Attempt @ Leading is not paying off!

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 1:00

An extortion plot foiled...I hope the perp gets the max. Bravo, Mr. Letterman.

By: sidneyames on 10/2/09 at 1:01

And did City Paper and the Scene merge? Why are the other two links going to the Scene? I know I'm out of the loop and somewhat "loopie", but "what's up with that"?

thank you for a logical response.

By: dargent7 on 10/2/09 at 1:12

Rio got the job. Bummer for the USA. Glad Obama made an attempt to secure the games. And in 2016, Obama, if re-elected, would just be finishing his 2nd term.
The man does have vision.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 1:15

It's Rio, baby! I'm going to brush up on my Portuguese.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 1:15

The Scene bought the TCP about a month ago.

By: dargent7 on 10/2/09 at 1:17

Lone: I think you got the Letterman story by now. "Dave" went to Ball State. Anybody who would go to a college named, Ball State, has to have some serious "balls". The "48 hours" producer picked the wrong guy to mess with.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 1:17

Uh,oh...new ownership? Hope there's no purge coming at us.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 1:23

Yeah, the would-be extortionist's girlfriend was one of the ho's, Letterman's lawyer played the culprits for fools...they tried to cash a fake check for 2 million; now they cannot deny culpability. That lawyer earned his/her pay.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 1:27

This will reflect badly on "48 hours" their credibility is gone. I predict the show will be cancelled.

By: dargent7 on 10/2/09 at 1:32

Gd: This "Eye Ball" guy is too successful. Too perfect. I don't trust anyone who can get a M.D. and a PhD. in one lifetime. His resume' is too perfect. Beautiful wife to match. Something's amiss. Plus, he's a professional dancer, too? I trust that high school dropouts have more integrity.

By: sidneyames on 10/2/09 at 2:07

Well, who did the world think letterman was sleeping with all these years? He was single, rich and relatively attractive (not that the socks ever helped). Of course he was sleeping with staffers aka climbers. Then he gets married; has harry; oops, has harry first and then gets married. I think he's got everything under control. Personally that is why I always lived by this mantra: Never poop where you eat! Those women are in trouble and they will be in a different world - jail - probably.

And what about those olympics? Man, O'bama really pulled out his big guns: O'pra and Ms. O'bama. Talk about tag teams. Geeeez. I hope they didn't blow it for the rest of our lives. Probably did.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 2:09

blow it for the rest of our lives? sid, seriously now. that's simply ridiculous.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 2:14

you and ben must be puffin' on the same crack pipe this afternoon.

By: Loner on 10/2/09 at 2:32

CBS had a scumbag on their payroll, so did Letterman.

By: slacker on 10/2/09 at 2:32

gdiafante, Dallas is a lock this week, bet every dime you have.
Its the slackerdamus gold pick of the week.
Speaking of pick, the NFL is requiring Jerry to wear boxing gloves when visiting other stadiums.

By: dargent7 on 10/2/09 at 2:38

What's up with "V" today? (SidVicious) Can anyone else detect a personality re-arrangement, ie., disorder? Seems her Fung Shui got entangled with her Chow Ming.

By: slacker on 10/2/09 at 2:51

Remember when Bob Clement, was suggesting that Nashville should bid for 2020 Olympics? And now they have permanently shut down the annual state fair, to prepare for the Olympics I suppose.
I love living here.

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 2:54

We could get the Intergalatic Olympics if they would build the damn landing pad...

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 3:06

hey, that's a good idea for the fairgrounds property...

By: Dragon on 10/2/09 at 3:07

If you factor in the travel time, you wouldn't hold them every four years.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 3:09

good point, dragon.

By: slacker on 10/2/09 at 3:12

pain, we couldn't compete with those guys. The best we have is Spiderman & Lance Armstrong, Spiderman is getting old, and Lance is missing one of his balls.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 10/2/09 at 3:17

slacker, that's too funny!

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 3:30

Nah, we have a ringer in Ben. He's from outer space but was naturalized as a citizen of Earth recently...I think.

By: house_of_pain on 10/2/09 at 3:42

We have Chuck Norris. 'nuff said.

By: gdiafante on 10/2/09 at 3:43

And Jack Bauer...
