Good girls finish first

I enjoyed Ron Wynn's article concerning Taylor Swift and the CMA awards show, ("Swift Dominates 43rd CMA awards", Nov. 12), and the photos taken by Mike Strasinger were excellent as well.

Indeed, Swift proved yet again that good girls do finish first. There is no stopping her. Her talent, grace and appeal are undeniable. It has been quite a year for her all the way around. She stood tall and accepted all the challenges.  

Swift shows us all that if you are genuine and honest, great things happen. The Country Music Association was "spot on" for naming her Entertainer of the Year. Swift is the complete package, and it is almost surreal that she is a 19-year-old.

Boy ! You have really got it bad for her don't you Tony?

By: house_of_pain on 11/13/09 at 4:49

Surprise, surprise...the only "surreal" part of this is the level of infatuation exhibited
by Tony. Seek help.

This guy wrote a similar piece (of crap) last week. Did he catch Ms. Swift on SNL?
She sung an ad hoc piece on her failed, numerous "relationships". Called the "boys", douche bags. Nice.
Her performance at the CMA awards looked like Mick Jagger prancing around the stage. Her skin tight black leather was enough to make Steven Tyler faint.
Yeah, some "complete package". Recites in her songs how she's "been done wrong" by all the guys she's been with. At 19? I've got a name for it but this is a family newspaper.

Hot off the press: Obama's in Japan, at a news conference. The guy has an ear piece/ interpreter since it's all in spoken in Japanese. The nerve of the President. He doesn't have the time in 10 months to learn and speak fluent Japanese? What an insult. The nerve of this guy!

Sapporo summit?

By: nativeson on 11/13/09 at 5:47

A talented songwriter? Okay, I'll give her that. Mature beyond her years? No doubt about it. But vocalist of the year? Not in a million.

Good morning, Nashville!

This is the third fawning love-letter from star-struck Tont Zizza. Hey Tony, get a life. FYI, Taylor Swift passes gas, like every other hominid on the mudball. Grow up man.

Tony sounds like stalker material...she's all he can think about....oy!

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 5:58

d'pain: I didn't understand the press conference until I fired up my bong. Then I understood the Japanese dude more than Obama. I swear he said, "We'll bury you" and Obama said, "Let's talk".

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 5:59

Loner...but I bet her turds are nice and round and smell like petunias.

By: dooley on 11/13/09 at 6:45

C'mon Nemo .... Its time for some of your wisdom. You're running late this morning.

By: dooley on 11/13/09 at 6:46

Speaking of wisdom , where is id this morning? i need a laugh.

By: dooley on 11/13/09 at 6:47

Should be " I '

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 6:57

"Dooley"...Nemo clocked in after 5:00pm yesterday. Everyone's gone for the day. idgaf was the only one yesterday to diss my LTE. Guy's consistent. He's petitioning the Catholic church to reverse it's decision to lift the ban on Galileo and to re-instate the ban on Copernicus' findings.

By: house_of_pain on 11/13/09 at 7:04

Nemo probably saw the LTE, and went back to bed.
Some days, it isn't even worth chewing through the restraints.

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 7:10

Taylor Swift's performance was painful. By the looks on their faces, the stars in the audience were none too pleased

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:15

Nemo doesn't sleep in a bed. He's got one of those hyperbolic oxygen chambers like Michael Jackson used. I don't think he's got a chimp, as yet.

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:17

Fund-O: Swift's facial expressions were painful due to being shoehorned into that leather outfit then being instructed to make love to the cameras. Good thing she had extensive experience.

By: sidneyames on 11/13/09 at 7:22

Well, I like Taylor's writing; it's plain and simple; sort of like the spoken language. And how many of us "aspiring" pulitizer prize winners would turn down the chance to get songs cut, get millions of cd's sold, have millions of adoring fans and be on top of the world at 19? Hmmmmmm! Missed my chance.

Regarding SNL, I didn't see it, but everyone who goes on that show ends up with some type of slur or bad taste joke.

I know a guy who's band opened for Taylor; he's awesome and a great kid. His band thinks she is a nice young lady and they seem to respect her. Since I know he's sort of all-American clean cut (with minor flaws), I seem to think she's OK.

And no, D7, I'm not in love with her. Eeeeee!

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/09 at 7:23

Good morning.

Tony The Stalker Zizza is drooling this morning. No surprise.

I think that Taylor Switf should get a Restraining Order against him.

How is that dargent? 8-)

By: sidneyames on 11/13/09 at 7:24

And D7, the truce is still in place. No meanie, meanie comments please.

I have to go to work now. Back at 1:00 to watch my soap opra! Watch every Friday, come rain or shine.

How about Little Jimmie Dickens? Did he do a great Kanya or what?

Does anyone plan to see Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw's new movie? Looks interesting.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/09 at 7:25

You mean people watched the CMA's??

But NFL replay was on....

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/09 at 7:26

Sandra Bullock needs a restraining order agains me. woooooo

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:30

Sid: We smok 'um peace pipe. I'm .001% Cherokee, so I'm good for it. Besides, our "peace" is good for my health. I was starting to hate you so much the fish stopped swimming in my aquarium when I posted a comment to you!

By: sidneyames on 11/13/09 at 7:31

Nemo, I think she's the most under rated actress in hollywood. Prettier than Jolie, smarter than most women (or equally as smart) and can act. And wow! What a catch of a husband; almost as good as mine.

Did anyone see the article on Ramsey and the bunker? Go read my post.

And where's Amy? I am looking for Amy's column and it's not there.

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 7:33

Keith Urban is right up there with my Rookie. Nicole looks like a wax figure. Is that a good or bad thing?

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 7:35

I don't get the Sandra Bullock hotness. She looks like she's wearing a dog or ape mask. Her eyes are too small for her face or something...

By: sidneyames on 11/13/09 at 7:38

Oh my gosh. That's so sad. I'm in the healing arts field and I am sorry to hear that. Just burn some sage; say a healing pray and take two shots!

If I don't get off this site, I'm gonna be late for work. Heck, who cares about work? I love CP. LMAO so much.

I agree with you, but then it could just be that I am hot for her. lol

Funditto I love you but grrrrr. lol

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:42

Fund-O: Don't get Sandra Bullock's attractiveness? See her and Ben Affleck in that movie (?). She's "understated elegance". Not flashy, kinda like Jennifer Lopez.
The kind of girl you want to take home to meet the parents.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/09 at 7:46

I agree dargent, but I love to hear Lopez talk and she is pretty too.

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:47

Sid: It's Friday the 13th. Take the day off as a religious holiday. Like Yom Kippur.
Tell your boss you cracked a mirror (looking at it).

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 7:50

Nemo: Women don't understand what us men really like. They think it's the big breasts, perfect teeth, eyebrows, size 20 waist, hour glass figure, bubble butt, 1600 on their SAT's, Playboy centerfold material, ....wait a minute. That IS what we want!

By: house_of_pain on 11/13/09 at 7:57

Nemo, google Bar Rafaeli. We'll understand if you don't come back right away.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/09 at 8:03

House, I came very close to starting Cutler this week...I think I'm going to send him to waivers now.

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 8:06

House: Did you know her SAT's were only 1580? And according to Fund-O, her eyes are too close together.

By: house_of_pain on 11/13/09 at 8:08

Let Jay go. I think he's got Vandy on the brain.

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 8:09

Dargent you nailed it - I'll think someone is beautiful and am always shocked when my husband makes a critical comment. I've never tried to understand it - just have my opinions.

And guys think we like huge muscles, machomen with long hair, when quite the opposite is true. My man? George Clooney (I've liked him since the Facts of Life days).

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 8:12

D7 - no, her eyes are too beady - like an ape. That's all. I think big round eyes are attractive, but that's just my opinon of what defines beauty.

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 8:14

Fund-O: I once had a woman tell me she thought "I'd be bigger,...on a counta' my height". Was that an insult? And she wasn't referring to my hands.

By: house_of_pain on 11/13/09 at 8:14

No, no, no, Fun...we like the "stoner chick" eyes. Looks like she's ready for bed...
it may just be for a nap, but there's always a chance...

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/09 at 8:23

I start with the eyes and then work my way down. I understand stand what men see in a women, but I have never understood what they see in men,

For thirty some years I tried to understand what my wife saw in me. Why would she want to be with me. It was only reasonly that I think I understand. It was because she wanted too.

By: dargent7 on 11/13/09 at 8:26

Nemo: You're selling yourself short. No one wants to be with you. Except maybe 'Bubba" down at county.

By: Funditto on 11/13/09 at 8:29

I'm a sucker for round, dark eyes.

Hey Sid, my little kids were jumping up and down on the bed w/glee when Taylor won, especially the Ent of the Yr award! They nearly broke the bed! LOL I'm ever so thankful and appreciative that she lives a clean life, stays upbeat and positive, and shows compassion and warmth to EVERYONE, including Dargent. (teeheehee) And Dargent, shame on you for assuming she's a tramp. At least there are no pics of her sans panties as she's getting out of her car! (geez, you just can't please some folks.)

By: bfra on 11/13/09 at 8:34

Hate to see what Funditto looks like! She is so critical of other women. Every woman she has bashed this AM is very goodlooking and talented.

By: govskeptic on 11/13/09 at 8:42

Her SNL performance was their highest rated one so far
this year! Come on though, "Female Vocalist of the Yr.."
Not sure most people over 18 would agree with that one.

By: Captain Nemo on 11/13/09 at 8:47

govskeptic the next lightning strick you will feel will be from sid the avenger.

By: gdiafante on 11/13/09 at 8:49

I remember when Stephen Foster won enterainer of the year...
