NFL, Dumbass

Conservative Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham Is Officially On The Packers Nation Hit List

In the 2004 election, Wisconsin was barely won by John Kerry. He won the state by little more than 100,000 votes. It easily could have gone either way.

Well, I hope McCain isn't planning on Wisconsin being a key state in the 2008 election, because he's already lost it.

Last Friday, conservative dumbass talk-radio host Laura Ingraham lit into Favre for crying after his retirement press conference. I'm not sure what the hell she was thinking, but she was vicious in a completely mean-spirited way. A lot of people missed what she said, but it's now leaking out. Here are some of the choice quotes.

"All these years, and I didn't know there was a woman quarterback in the NFL."

"Brett Favre...we're watching this in the studio, obviously retiring from the NFL, great quarterback, handsome 38-year-old man, he gets up there and he does this press conference that was frankly one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen."

"That's a great message for young boys. 'Get up there and act like a girl and start blubbering like a baby."

Then, in her best impersonation of a crying toddler with its favorite toy taken away, she wah-wah-wah's while uttering in a mocking tone, "It's about me, it was never about me, but it is about me, bla, bla, bla" before returning to her regular voice and stating, "I could not believe what I was seeing."


All class, baby. I believe the bounty on her head is currently set at $20,000.

Now look, I'm not big into crying either, but Ingraham's words are totally uncalled for. Favre has basically been playing football since the time he was born and it's been a game he has dedicated his life to. It's more than understandable that he'd be a little bent out of shape over retiring. Besides, I think Favre's crying showed how much passion he has for the game, and that's nothing to make fun of.

Even more impressive may be that lots of people cried when Favre retired.

Something tells me no one's going to cry when Ingraham gets whacked by a Packers fan ends her career.

that may be true on an old country road, but I have to give credit where its due. I know what its like to drive a car and motorcycle at 150mph all alone, I cannot imagine what its like to to be doing 200 with 20 other cars around you doing the same speed. that takes an assload of concentration.

Wow, your hurting man. In no way did that make any sense. You just put down plenty of people on FanIQ who also like Nascar. I really didn't know people stoop as low as that but I guess I was wrong. My bad for being a fan of a sport. If someone watches golf which I can't stand I don't sit here and laugh at them for watching that sport, its just what they enjoy. I'm starting to wonder about certain people on this site.

WHOA...when did this turn into a flame thrower?

Please no more name calling - let's leave that to Laura; she's done such a bang-up job of being offensive here. (Actually we can call names, as long as we're directing them at her instead of other members).

Let's not forget the Code of Conduct, k?

Wow, how old are you? Are you 12 because it says your 23 but I'm confused by your immaturity. Your coming out with these useless attacks like calling me a redneck in which I'm not by the way but I do know some rednecks that would take offense to that. Another typical stereotype. I happen to know some smart rednecks but people like you don't want to admit that and continue to act childish because they think their cool. Hey, when you grow up let me know.

If Brett Favre, who has played in freezing weather and with broken fingers and gone without painkillers, doesn't fit within her definition of masculinity, can anyone?

THIS IS WHY I WOULD NEVER WANT TO BE CONSIDERED 'CONSERVATIVE'. Is there a Jackass of the Year award ceremony for the conservative nation? What's the prize; a double wide trailer?! First Rush Limbaugh showed us that he just a racist jackass who had NO BUSINESS being on ESPN and now this dumb tw** chirps in with her mind-numbing, knuckle-dragging, sexist, two cents worth. I could never throw myself in with a lot that I would continually be EMBARRASSED by. This isn't a female thing, this is what happens when you decide to become a charicture of a person, instead of an actual person and call yourself a good 'ol conservative American. Actually this is Neo-Con behaviour, as I very much doubt that Berry Goldwater would have ever acted this way or would even speak to those that do. If ANYONE deserves to be deported from the US, I would DEFINATELY vote to have every, single, slimy, disgusting, rat, traitor, punk, weakling, stupid NEO-CON run out of the US before we even dealt with illegal immagrants. At least they are bringing something of VALUE to the table!

Well, apparently somebody takes my political opinion a little too seriously.

 

I don't think McCain would have a shot with Obama.  I think he (Obama) would take away most of McCain's independent voters, which is his strength.  I think McCain's best shot is against Hillary, because she's the one person who can tryly unite the Republican party.  I do think think that Hillary would defeat McCain too though.  McCain is a Republican, which will hurt him right off the bat just due to party affliation right now.  His position on the war is not going to be popular at all, and he openly admits he knows nothing about the economy in a time where we're about to (or possibly already have) entered a recession.  Anyway...

 

Edit to add:  According to RealClearPolitics, in a general electon Obama is up on McCain by 5.2%, but Clinton only has 1.7% on him.  Interestingly in Pennslyvania, Obama would beat McCain by 2% but McCain would beat Hillary by .3% even though right now Penn Dems favor Hillary quite heavily (13.2%).

Poll numbers this early are almost always useless. The numbers in the November election is all that matters.

Just to help you out a little bit here, John McCain is actual a target of Laura Ingraham's attacks. McCain is actual a liberal Republican who switched parties prior to the 2000 elections in hopes that he could win over moderate Republicans and have a clear chance for the White House. McCain still has a chance to make the Badger State a Red State for the November Election.

McCain may have a chance, but ultimately I think (assuming he's going up against Obama) that he'll get blown out, so to speak.  The two biggest issues this year will be the war and economy, and quite frankly right now McCain's stances on those are far too similar to Bush's for him to be able to win the election.

luckily for her I dont give two sh*ts what anyone labeled "conservative" thinks about anything.

Sounds like this Laura needs to have a rubber band stretched around her head, then snap her out of it.

About the only question, that remains, is did she kee her foot, lodged in her mouth the whole time, or did she switch repeatedly?

3/11/08   |   kokomojo5   |   86 respect

Although I know that men are supposed to hold back tears and hide emotions, we men have both of these, and should show our emotions and tears. Laura Ingraham should just stick to her field of commentary, and that is politics. She would probably do best to stay away from sports. Farve most likely came under fire from Ingraham because of his activities for human causes which just might settle too well with her. Who knows? Ingraham is not the most compassionate person from whom I've heard from lately. I'll just say this about her: She is a "right wing bomb thrower".

This woman obviously doesn't follow sports, or have any idea what it means to have passion for anything. I don't think I've seen any athlete worth his salt - and especially someone who's been living his dream as long as Favre - keep complete composure during a retirement announcement or ceremony. I'm not a Packers fan, and I want to b#&!$-slap her.
