    I’d like to see more conversations between Ames and people like Smith – build some bridges with the anti-govt cynicism going around.

    Take it to the streets? This ain’t France. Part of being a citizen of the USA is embracing economic masochism.

    Why is Steven A Smith an expert on any panel on serious issues? That dunce doesn’t even understand sports, the topic he’s SUPPOSED to be an expert on!

  • 4. jimmy james  |  August 11th, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    Ames and Spitzer on the same panel? Swoon!

  • 5. az  |  August 11th, 2009 at 5:21 pm

    You will be more effective with Alex Jones’ Tyranny Crusher 1, Mark.

    Mark Ames and Elliot Spitzer both being asked to provide commentary. Damn. I wonder why MSNBC doesn’t call me. Don’t just say it’s because no one knows who I am. It’s because MSNBC is liberal, yeah that’s the ticket, it’s all MSNBC’s fault.

  • 7. JoshA  |  August 12th, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    Enjoyed the Spitzer/Ames segment on Ratigan’s show. I’d never seen Ratigan’s show and tend to think of cable news as a wasteland, but that was actually a good segment.

    The Stephen A. Smith one was…well, I suppose I can’t say for sure since I didn’t finish it.

  • 8. Mark  |  August 12th, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    Ames is finally getting his due…Congrats, Mark.

  • 9. anon  |  August 13th, 2009 at 1:30 am

    yeah, you really marked yourself.

  • 10. Tam  |  August 13th, 2009 at 3:43 am

    I’ve just noticed my previous comment was stupid. Sorry if I offended you, readers.

    Could you maybe clarify which parts of the mainstream corporate media it is acceptable to make scurrillous fun of around here and which parts it isn’t, so as to prevent people like me accidentally overstepping the mark again?

    Once again, apologies!

    Numbers concerning the argument between Ames and Spitzer would be nice. What are the statistics saying about random shootings? Are those incidents increasing or decreasing? What about criminal activity in general?

  • 12. Flozzi  |  August 14th, 2009 at 9:28 pm


    first, congratulations on your big media exposure.

    second, what the heck is going on to your microphone/hearing aid? can’t they tuck it in or something?

  • 13. NH  |  August 23rd, 2009 at 7:01 pm

    Does anyone know where I can find an archive of the whole morning meeting from August 11 where they interviewed a tea partier queefs all over Mcardle at around 9:15?

  • 14. NH  |  September 16th, 2009 at 7:38 pm

    Um LOL not sure where this typo came from “queefs all over Mcardle” but I”m still looking for that clip.

    The current health system does effect us veterans. I am a disabled veteran with multiple mental disorders including PTSD. I have had over 14 surgeries prior to discharge. I cannot get health insurance for my family. Even though the veteran is covered by VA for service connected disabilities and other related issues, I cannot get private health insurance for my family because of my pre-existing conditions. I will not choose to use the private health system for military veteran issues, but I have been, as well as my wife and 3 children from getting health care. Therefore, my family is currently uninsured. Therefore, it is not just the ones that cannot afford insurance, but the veterans that can afford insurance is also being discriminated against.
