"CNN=Crackhead Nightly News." Out of the mouths of No Quarter readers.

Dispirited? Bitter? Thinking America is going to hell in a handbasket? Before you reach for your gun and your Bible, take two readings of No Quarter's comment section and call me in the morning.

John Batchelor called it several months ago when he said that No Quarter is the new Daily Kos. It's what Kos used to be, before they got taken over by the MoveOn crowd, or went round the bend with Bush Derangement Syndrome, or whatever happened that drove away all the Democrats with common sense.

Many of the refugees found a perch at No Quarter and the blogosphere -- and No Quarter-- haven't been the same since. I'm not sure that Larry Johnson knew at first what the heck was happening to his site, but he wisely gave the throngs of new readers their head.

Here, a sampling of NQ reader pearls -- sass, salt, and all -- excerpted from a comment thread today in response to the NQ post: Wachovia Bank bought by Citibank

Donald Trump says oil has dropped $10 today, down to $96 a barrell and will continue to drop like a rock. He also says we’ll do fine wo a bailout. Economy will come back and skyrocket. I trust him more than this stupid analysts.

I REALLY hope he is right but I’m very worried.

Jack Cafferty is lying sack of crap. He is blaming this ALL on the republicans and McCain. He says they failed to come up with the 11 votes.

HELLO!!! 90 something Democrats voted against it too.

ALL of CNN is blaming it on the republicans - Ed Henry just said the same exact thing as Cafferty - and Henry’s supposed to be a journalist - NONE OF THEM are even mentioning the 90 something dem votes against - saying it’s all on the head of republicans and those 11 votes - they truly think Americans are jaw-droppingly stupid - that we can’t even count.

I’m thinking (hoping) the backlash against the media will be catastrophic for those liars.

facts shmacts. This failure of the bill is McCain’s fault and the Dems losing the GE will be on Hillary.

Nancy Pelosi is going through fasting and prayer before she calls the ‘One’. she has lost, and has disappointed the ‘One’. fasting always helps. lol

[For readers outside the U.S.: 'The One' is a sarcastic reference to Obama.]

Comment by VMorris | 2008-09-29 15:18:48 I’m watching FOX. CNN=Crackhead Nightly News.

Comment by VMorris | 2008-09-29 15:23:53
Oh, this is rich. Somebody on FOX (BO supporter) is spinning this with something like:

McCain was supposed to deliver x-number of votes. Obama 120. Obama delivered 140, McCain didn’t deliver what he promised, therefore, it was all McCain’s fault.

Bull Hockey. 11 votes could have come from te 95 democrats who voted against it. Nice try but it is all baloney.

I say, let’s throw them all out and elect Donald Trump/Bloomberg ticket.

Comment by Ferd McBerfle | 2008-09-29 15:27:32
Better if switched: Bloomberg/ThisRug4Sale

Comment by VMorris | 2008-09-29 15:30:00
LOL. That works for me!

Obama and McCain–YOU’RE FIRED!!!

Donald Trump is very intelligent. Fox asked him one night if he would consider working as a financial analyst and he basically said no. But they have had him on pretty regular. They also said that percentage wise, today is not even in the top 10 of largest drops in the stock market. I think oil will continue to drop. When it does, the price of groceries will go back down. And on and on. Trump said people w cash will boost the economy. People do not need to borrow anymore on credit. Things need to slow down.

And what will happen to these big fat greedy financial institutions? I hope they rot in hell where they belong. I don’t GIVE A RATS ASS. The financial market is not going to fall off the face of the earth. I work at Wells Fargo and they sent us an e-mail a few months ago and said they were very minimally involved in subprime mortgages and so were in no danger of failing. Chase is apparently ok too as they bought Washington Mutual.

Perhaps this is just what was needed. Let the weasels stand before the world w their pants around their ankles. Maybe next time those golden parachutes won’t look so good.

Major Garrett reports that Obama did not take a stand on this bill. Does anyone have links to his taking credit for the whole thing?

Now that the dems are going to blame the Republicans for the failure to pass, shouldn’t they (the Republicans) take this opportunity to point out the flaws of the bill and the fact that the Dems were adding money for ACORN and offer to the public the reasonable measures that need to be added to make the bill feasible?

Here you go:

Henny Penny, Goosie Lucy and Turkey Lurkey have all been sent a message today.

To Paraphrase Pelosi’s message to Wall Street that the party is over. Antsy Nancey got her comeuppance from quite a few of her own party members in this vote. Not everyone in what remains of the Democratic Party believe as she does - that party gloating transcends that which relates to taking care of the country.

I think McCain needs to put a new plan out there…

we have to accept that the bad loans have been floating bad paper for 20+years, and now they need to got to jail…this means many were cooking the books.
