Sojourner's Place

say what? mm-hm! (btw, o.j. guilty!)

SAY WHAT? No Armstrong Williams DID NOT fix his mouth to criticized Gwen Ifill about her book about African-American political leaders, saying she "should have disclosed" it, and that it is "ultimately impossible" for her not to favor Sen. Barack Obama, because she has a "financial stake" in his winning the presidency. MM-HM, YEAH HE DID! Armstong, you know you wrong cause some of us ain't forgot the $240K you got to promote No Child Left Behind from your Frat when he was over the Department of Education!

SAY WHAT? Was that a pitbull with lipstick winking at the American public during the one and only Vice Presidential debate? MM-HM! What's that about?

SAY WHAT? Did the Ice Queen really say she fought to protest atrocities in Sudan by dropping assets tied to the country's brutal regime from the state's multi-billion-dollar investment fund? MM-HM! YEAH SHE DID. Only thing is that her folks killed the bill to divest leaving $22 million in Sudan-linked investments of the $40 billion fund. Guess that's why she was winking.

SAY WHAT? Did you know that O.J. was on trial for armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas? MM-HM! Well he's not anymore, cause he was found guilty on all counts! SAY WHAT? MM-HM!

Speak the Truth!

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old SjP ain't got nothing more to say.

9 sojourners hollin' back


The neocons need to STHU! They knew about Gwen's book. She announced that she was in the process of writing it last summer. And it is not solely about Barack. So what is the HOLLA really about? Could be the fact that their lady maverick is really about as bright at a 25 watt bulb? And everybody with sense (book and common) realizes it.

As far as that wink. I will not key out my initial comments on that move. But you know we run on the same mental wave so you can imagine what I thought.

She is really a confused individual. I want her to get a lesson on basic principles of a democracy. The VP does not have extended powers under the Constitution. And if by some ill fated chance the mundane twins won the election~she doesn't need to have the power to do more than she honestly can. She really needs someone to help her get her confusion organized.

As far as OJ is concerned....I understand that he was upset about his items being stolen. But given his story and how the masses feel about him..a call to the local police department would of served him far better than trying to be An American Gangster.

But this time around it looks like they have got him. And quite frankly, I have never been completely convienced that he was guilty or not. But you know how universal law works.

So it looks like he will be doing Big Ben behind this situation. And I know he wishes that Johnny was still alive...

I thought Gwen was very objective, hell I thought she was kind of easy on those two, she should of acted like a prosecuter and grilled them especially on the gay marriage issue that could have been a turning point.

The Republicans should be happy that woman was let off the hook.

@ Ms Lady Deborah, you are so right that its not soley about Barack. And how dare an African American woman who speaks coherently in complete sentences without babbling like a 3 year old pose unvetted questions to Missie Anne? How dare she?

And the wink! Well, yeah you know exactly what I'm talking bout!

And po' OJ! Just what was he thinking? He obviously learned nothing 13 years ago.

@ Clnmike, Same here! Gwen let a lot go for both of them which allowed Palin to escape by the skin of her stumped tail.

The right's intent was to box Gwen Ifill in. By criticizing her book and painting her as pro-Obama, they hoped to force her to soften her questions to the beauty queen. And if she hadn't, then they would have whined about Ifill being in Barack's pocket.

I'm afraid the wingnuts tactics worked. Ifill failed to ask follow-up questions to Palin's platitudes and talking points that posed as answers.

I think Gwen did an OK job, she certainly could have been stronger but hey that would have been seen as a "Black Attack" so under the circumstances she was OK.

Sarah is doing a good job of keeping Tina Fey in working material.

Oj is a fool going to seed!

I wrote about my views on the VP debate myself - gosh I'm ready for the election to be here already.

On the OJ thing, it is quite ironic that the verdict came in 13 years to the day that he was found not guilty for killing his ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson. I could not help but wonder if he was actually guilty this time or if the jury saw it as a chance to exact retribution for his earlier verdict.
I did not follow this case because quite frankly I am done with OJ. I feel very little sympathy for him as a person. The one thing we all know that he is guilty of is spousal abuse and that for me is all I need to know about the man.

Gwen Ifill was very professional and rather "soft" on Biden and especially on Palin..since she avoided or skirted around many direct questions.

October 4, 2008 at 11:03 PM

I really felt as if Gwen was absent...she was there, but truly ignored, specifically by Caribou Barbie. If her job was to put the question out there and let them go, then she did it. I don't think the forum was set up to allow her to do anything other than that...
