Go Gingerballs!

How come nobody told me that Flight of the Conchords manager Murray was now working as a correspondent for MSNBC?!

This hereby fulfills your yearly requirement of “attention paid to MSNBC”

    I see Chuck Todd hasn’t yet drawn the attention of Keith Olberman’s Sauron-like gaze.

    If you displease The Great and Powerful Olberman, he’ll see to it that you are whipped with telescoping antennas from 1970’s-era television sets until death.

    I adore Mr. Gingerballs.

    Yes, and if Bill O’Reilly doesn’t cut your mike for speaking your mind, it’s falafels and loofahs for everybody, except that Andrea Mackris woman. She is off his Christmas card list.


    PS to Connor: Perhaps it’s best not to dabble, ye political dilettante, in political waters during an election year. I come here for fun, not to read critiques of MSNBC or Olbermann or O’Reilly for that matter. I added this for balance, nothing more. Cheers.

    You should address that PS to Tim. There’s nothing partisan about Conor’s post at all.

    The New Zealand consulate is on the what now?

    A tad sensitive, are we? It’s humor, kids.

    Good freaking grief.

    I guess this makes Chris Matthew the Leggy Blonde.

    MSNBC is the ONLY one that gets my attention, and specifically Countdown. I mean…he has Paul F. Tompkins on for pete’s sake. Clearly he has a straighter head on his shoulders than the rest for that simple reason. And no, I don’t mean that sarcastically.

    Amen to that, Tim.

    Worse of all, we’re losing track of what’s really important: Gingerballs.

    Just as long as he doesn’t tear Chris Matthew’s clothes off on the photocopier.

    Are you sure you didn’t mean CNBC? Because it’s business, it’s business time.

    Oh my god, Conor, I nearly forgot to tell you that you suck for not finishing the state quarters thingy!

    I suck!
