He's a younger version of the Six Flags guy, right?

/It's the bowtie...
 
2006-09-08 02:05:35 PM  
I thought he was the Girly-man that the Governator was talking about.

"You're doin' a heckuva jive, Tuckie"

Sharpton, meanwhile, explained: "I want to balance the influence of DeLay and at the same time get a right-winger off talk television and help Tucker find another career. I think it would be a great contribution to society to have him as a cheeseball disco dancer than a talk-show host propagating right-wing politics."

The man does have a good point.

Guest Anthony Michael Hall to guest James Carville on the Jimmy Kimmel Show last night: "I loved when you used to always biatchslap Tucker Carlson on Crossfire. That was great."
 
2006-09-08 02:46:42 PM  
I actually like Tucker's show on MSNBC.

I couldn't abide him on Crossfire.
 
2006-09-08 04:21:40 PM  
I didn't even know he was gay.
 
2006-09-08 04:22:10 PM  
Break a leg, Tucker. Literally.
 
2006-09-08 04:25:05 PM  
That cock-swallower couldn't do a jig.
 
2006-09-08 04:25:58 PM  
Hmph. Why does that douchebag get to dance with that hot little Ukrainian number? Give him Ann Coulter - they could use a guy-guy couple on that show.

If you sit back idly and fail to perform your civic duty, lesser dancers could win this competition. America simply cannot afford that. "

"We are living in trying and uncertain times," the good reverend writes, tongue in cheek. "That's why now, more than ever, we need a strong leader who will stand up for what we believe. Better yet, we need a leader who will dance for what we believe. Tucker Carlson is just such a dancer."

Sharpton continues: "Watch Tucker do the cha-cha and then call in your vote to make sure he advances to the next week's show. You can call as often as you like. Remember: Voting in celebrity dance contests is not just your right in this country, it's a privilege. ... If you sit back idly and fail to perform your civic duty, lesser dancers could win this competition. America simply cannot afford that. "


Wow!

That has to be the most intelegent thing I have ever heard Rev. Sharpton say and even worse I agree with him.

The world must be coming to an end!

/I know he is being sarcastic, but I am not. He does make a good point!
 
2006-09-08 04:27:59 PM  
tucker carlson can't do much to make up for the fact that he's an uninformed idiot who got his position in life by nepotism.

it's a tough thing to get past.

There's been enormous confusion over the Tucker Carlson and al-Qaeda connection, Gloria. First of all, on the question of--of whether or not there was any kind of a relationship, there was a relationship. It's been testified to. The evidence is overwhelming. It goes back to the early '90s...There's clearly been a relationship.- Dick Cheney, 6/17/04

I hope his hot Ukrainian partner "accidentally"
kicks him in the ding-ding during a Charleston.

Dear VDVDVD:

We have tested your goggles extensively in the environment you have indicated. I am sorry to report that they have repeatedly failed our tests on several variables.

In short, they are ineffective.

P.S. We offered your eye bleach to the test subjects after each test, again, to no effect.

Sincerely,

CleverLabs

anyone else hear Clay Aitkin is in the running for the head of the committee for people with mental dissabilities or something like that?
I laughed at that...

Great timing of this submission given the one right before it.

Dude! Not cool. Missed the Keyboard by | | that much and sprayed tea all over my office carpet.

Please in the name of all that's holy, someone tell me this is satire.
 
2006-09-08 04:43:29 PM  
Tucker Carlson is a joke even amongst those in his industry. Dunno how he even maintains a job.
 
2006-09-08 04:46:49 PM  
What! Tucker's got a new dance partner? Carville has got to be jealous.
 
2006-09-08 04:48:22 PM  
This... can't... be real real, right?
 
2006-09-08 05:16:44 PM  
Am I weird in thinking that, without that damn bowtie, Tucker Carlson actually looks... well, not attractive exactly, but at least like a fairly good-looking, normal guy?
 
2006-09-08 05:19:11 PM  
They seem to have mis-pronounced prance in the article.
 
2006-09-08 05:19:33 PM  
I bet he has two right feet.
 
2006-09-08 05:30:13 PM  
If anyone had seen the article about this recently,he has been preparing and practicing for this very rigorously with a hot dance coach.


/I'd like to see some of the hyper-critical Farkers here get up and dance in front of all America,too.
 
2006-09-08 05:38:54 PM  
I'd vote for him if I had cable.
 
2006-09-08 05:39:22 PM  
Tucker is the only intelligent political pundit on tv. I just may have to watch this stupid dancing show. That should make my girlfriend happy.

/Carville endorsed him today.
 
2006-09-08 05:39:57 PM  
Has Ninjasocks heard about this?
 
2006-09-08 05:48:50 PM  
He's less sincere without the bow tie.
 
2006-09-08 05:49:37 PM  
Tucker blows goats !!!!!

"Tucker is the only intelligent political pundit on tv."

This is a joke right? Sarcasm, right?

should read: "Tucker is the biggest half-wit, 'dee dee dee' pundit on tv.
 
2006-09-08 06:57:43 PM  
re Sharpton, I have to say this: I heard him interviewed recently on NPR, and the guy was pretty much all there -- he had his facts straight, spoke on topic and with conviction. I had to revise my opinion of him several notches up.
 
2006-09-08 07:13:12 PM  
I think everyone is being too tough on Tucker. He is very educational, actually. Just yesterday he stated that it is perfectly acceptable to lie about facts (ABC 9/11 special) if you are trying to get a point across.
Oh, and that we DID discover WMD in Iraq. All in the same show. Bravo!

He is great! You are just envious of his intellect. Yeah!

slowboiled: This is a joke right? Sarcasm, right?

No sarcasm. Watch his show. He knows what he is talking about. He is openly very conservative, but is not partisan at all. I can't say that about any other pundit I know. And I have no idea what a 'dee dee dee' pundit is.
 
2006-09-08 07:19:02 PM  
When there's a thread about personal liberty, everyone jumps all over it. When there's a thread about the only libertarian on cable news, everyone jumps all over him. I don't get it. Given, Tucker was a dong on Crossfire, but so was Begala, Carville, and Novak, and they are all personally good people with interesting, well thought-out opinions.

Tucker Carlson is a joke even amongst those in his industry. Dunno how he even maintains a job.

Is that the standard? So we can assume that O'Reilly and Nancy Grace are the really smart ones I suppose. Also, Survivor must be a good show.

Tucker is anti-Iraq war, pro-decriminalization, anti-welfare, and anti-tort. He seems to be in the Fark mainstream to me.

/Sharpton kicks some ass too.
 
2006-09-08 07:25:34 PM  
All of those tools from crossfire are just that, tools. O'Reilly, IMHO, is the worst thing to happened to cable news. Just because one side sucks, that doesnt make the other side good by default. Its the same as getting only a Republican and a Democrat to choose from for president and calling that a real choice. They both suck.

If we dont watch either, they lose their influence.

My 2 cents

Jon Stewart for President!
 
2006-09-08 07:33:55 PM  
Just because one side sucks, that doesnt make the other side good by default.

Of course it does. If the Iraq war is wrong, those who oppose it are right. If marijuana being illegal is wrong, those oppose that are right by definition. What the hell are you talking about?

Who would you seriously support for president?
 
2006-09-08 07:48:56 PM  
I still dissagree. Yes, those statements about opinions of the war, and pot being legal are true, if you dont believe the same as one side, the other side is where you opinion lands. However, a point of view is not the same as the person holding it. For example, Bush and Kerry saw eye to eye on many important topics(war on terrorism, homeland security) and tended to dissagree only on (IMO)distractionary 'moral-based' topics (abortion, gay marriage, bla bla). So I hope that clarifies 'what the hell' I'm talking about.

To answer your question about who I would actually support for pres. In the last election, Carol Mosley Brown[sp] I thought was the only person that was honest, opinionated, and willing to answer directly to her critics. The same cannot be said for Dubya or Kerry, or any of the others for that matter.

I do however, think Jon Stewart would in fact do a far better job than the 'usuall suspects' we get to choose from that are groomed to be politicians. Just my opinion.

I think if Jon Stewart believed he would be a good politician he would. I'm a huge fan of him and Colbert, but they have no background in any realm of public policy. It's that kind of cult of personality that led to Bush being elected. I think it's also the reason you reflexively don't like Tucker.

I heard people on a radio show recently complaining that lawyers write all the laws in this state. I hate lawyers as much as the next guy, but writing laws is one thing they're uniquely qualified to do. It's the same with those who are "groomed to be politicians." I personally don't want the president to be a recent comedy show host or US rep from a no-name district... or the 3rd weakest governor in the Union for that matter.
