JerrylNot off the topic one bit. OK, he didn't "wish" for this to be but he said that she would be an outstanding candidate. Here is what Mr. Bashir said before the ending quote on his MSNBC show a week before Thanksgiving:
In 1756, he records that “A slave named Darby catched eating canes; had him well flogged and pickled, then made Hector, another slave, s-h-i-t in his mouth.” This became known as Darby’s dose, a punishment invented by Thistlewood that spoke only of the slave owners savagery and inhumanity.
And he mentions a similar incident again in 1756, this time in relation to a man he refers to as Punch. “Flogged Punch well, and then washed and rubbed salt pickle, lime juice and bird pepper; made Negro Joe piss in his eyes and mouth.” I could go on, but you get the point.
When Mrs. Palin invoked slavery, she doesn’t just prove her rank ignorance. She confirms that if anyone truly qualified for a dose of discipline from Thomas Thistlewood, then she would be the outstanding candidate.
Mr. Bashir found that, while you indeed have freedom of speech, especially political speech, in the US, there can be repercussions for it.

eivo,You are incorrect about Sgt.Schultz; he is on MSNBC, not CNBC. But, he most assuredly is a fat slob. I would also add, a minimal talent as well. And, while we are on MSNBC, what about the vile things Martin Bashir said about Sarah Palin? Since she is America's resident "Idiot" and "dunce", he wished someone would defecate and urinate in her mouth! Had to resign his position over that since the standards on that network are so low they didn't fire him. And, what about the things that Rachel Maddow has said about Bush and Cheney? Why would someone name their son "Rachel"?
Democratic state-controlled media at its finest!

I think McNally should hire him as his secretary and chief spokesman.

I'm sure Mooney fans believe that was a bad call at the wrong time of the game whereas Clinton-Massie fans believe it was a good call at the right time. Calls are made all throughout a game that have a direct influence on the game. That is part of the game. But, don't criticize the official for doing his job at a critical time. If officials are not supposed to make tough calls like this when the game is tied, maybe the officials should just walk off the field and let the two teams have at it for the last 5 minutes. I'm sure that would solve some problems. Better yet, why not study the rules and mechanics, take the required tests, and get on the field to officiate the game.
Congrats to Cardinal Mooney on another great season. You should be proud of your performance as many teams compete but few get as far in the season as the Cards.

There must be some new "nieces and nephews" that need jobs at the county. It would be best to split the renewal and new tax because I am unlikely to vote for any increases.

Boardman68,No doubt that there are young girls in high school that will throw themselves at the male teachers. But, that still doesn't make what he did correct. He is supposed to be the adult, he is supposed to know better, and under his state license laws as teacher, he attests to the fact that he will not enter into such relationships. He was a 29 year old teacher, in a point of authority over students, and acted on his sexual urges. The question I would ask you is "Is it OK if some 29 year old male teacher "banged" YOUR 16 year old daughter, even if she stripped in front of him and wrapped her legs around him, making YOUR daughter a "conniving deceitful hoe"?"
Sorry, IMHO, Joe Cleghorn is not a good man and he threw away his life because God gave him two heads but only enough blood for one to work at a time!

Well, I guess the only bigger joke than the OSU schedule is Florida State's schedule and they are rated #1 but have to get by DUKE in the ACC Championship game. Look, this BCS process has been a joke for some time as it rewards the teams from the power conferences that can play easy schedules and stay unbeaten. The four team playoff will be better but the #5 team will complain next year.

ronfi07,I read the article from the Athens paper and it contains direct quotes (note the quotation marks in the story) from Coach Hake. Anyone that has been around him while coaching knows he is loud and brash with his team and gets the most from his players. But, the comments should not be made in public while warming up for a game. Totally inappropriate. I thought he was bigger than that kind of behavior.

Just like Paul Harvey used to say, here is the rest of the story. After reading the published story from the Athens newspaper in Comment #1, this event now is easier to understand. If Coach Hake did say those things on the field, within earshot of the opposing team (i.e., the comments were made to be heard), he got what he asked for. Those comments are suitable for locker room pep talks, amongst the team/family. Once you are on the field, why give the opponent the ammo to use against your team? This is unfortunate as, once again, a game played by young men is ruined by the adults who have not grown up.

Every season under Wolford, YSU does NOT get better as the season progresses. Every year, November has been a killer. You have to finish the season strong by eliminating your mistakes and maximizing the strengths of your players. But, Wolford has not done this and for that reason alone he should be canned. Next, what ever happened with recruiting the State of Youngstown like Tressel. You need a large base of kids from the 75 mile radius of Y-town so that their families will put their butts in the seats. And, defense wins championships. If you hold them scoreless, it is a tie! But, their linemen on both sides of the ball are weak and slow. This is a very lackluster program.
