LMC's Smorgasbord

Too many things to talk about so time for another smorgasbord of good stuff. To sum up the first 4 hours of 24 I am still mourning President Palmer. If he was a Republican he would've been my choice for President in 2008 :-). But with his loss we have a personal cause for Jack to pursue so it does work well in the story. So all of us Palmer fans will just have to move on :-(.
We also lost Michelle who was another one of my favorite characters so had to at least give them a final sendoff with some pictures. I would've picked different people to bump off but alas Joel Surnow didn't consult with me on who they were going to get rid of. If he had I would've highly recommended getting rid of the weasal President Logan and Edgar.

Some other interesting tidbits about the show is besides Rush being a big fan so is Laura Ingraham and Mary Matalin. Which just goes to show you how smart Conservative women are. The show is also doing very well, here is a clip from Newsmax:
'24' Gets Huge Ratings

"Fox's "24" - a favorite prime-time show for many conservatives - just pulled in its best ratings ever with its fifth-season premiere and the first of two back-to-back episodes. This season's first episode of "24" averaged 17 million viewers and a 7.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic. "24"'s second hour finished with 15.5 million viewers and a 6.7 in adults 18-49.

These are phenomenal figures that speak volumes about what sort of entertainment post-9/11 Americans seem to prefer. Contrast this to the tepid response to George Clooney's "Syriana," with its anti-American message about the 'causes' of Islamic terrorism, and one begins to see that Americans are ready to watch entertainment that deals with our current War on Terror - but also that they're sensitive to the messages that entertainment contains.

Will Hollywood learn this lesson? Perhaps. A good sign will be whether the Academy showers "Syriana" with nominations later this month ..."

And finally my favorite Jack Bauer line from the 1st 4 hours is, "The only reason you're still conscious is because I don't want to carry you." Classic!!

You Are a Chick Rocker!

You're living proof that chicks can rock

You're inspired by Joan Jett and the Donnas

And when you rock, you rock hard

(Plus, you get all the cute guy groupies you want!)

I got a huge kick out of my results on this quiz. I found this over at EitherOrr. Let me know what kind of rocker you guys turned out to be.

Awhile back Patrick did a post on Babes for Bush with conservative women pictures for the men. He then attempted to do the same for the ladies but it didn't quite work for me (no offense Patrick) I figured I'd take a stab at seeing what I could find :-).

From Top to Bottom:
1) Sean Hannity (ofcourse)
2) Mel Gibson
3) Jim Caviezel
4) Bruce Willis
5) Our President W in the flightsuit

I tried to do what Patrick did and post a picture of a Democrat man for contrast but no matter what I did my picture of Micheal Moore wouldn't post. I think it is a sign that my blog couldn't handle having his picture posted here :-).

Finally on a more serious note check out Suzie's site to see about another psycho judge not protecting our kids.

O.K. I am sorry but here is my list of most hot...1. BUSH in the first picture you had.. he is so hot.. I have always thought that about him. It is his personality mixed with his looks, mixed with his strength of character.
2. cavezil... totally
3. Mel Gibson, great blue eyes, but not conservative enough for me.
4. Bruce Willis, totally hot.
5. Sean: I just love him, but I never thought he was that cute. I guess I have never been attracted to the thick dark hair, and eyebrows/with white skin thing. Not to knock him.. His personality makes up for it though. I prefer him live, because his hair is tossled and he looks better, like more tanned or something.

YEs, I am a rock girl too.. (I wouldn't think so because i picked David Bowie.. I have always LOVED Bowie).

Rivka said...

O.K. I hope you don't mind, i had to use your Bush picture.. the one with the babes on it, for my post today.. However, i did give you a link for your post today!!
I had to admit my secret crush on him..

Joubert said...

LMC, how can you say my choices didn't work for you when 3 of your five guys are the same as mine? Okay I didn't have a pic of Mel with long hair or Bruce with ear-rings - maybe you just like that "rocker" look since you're a rocker chick? ;)

Dionne said...

Rebecca: You put a big smile on my face reading your comments. I would've posted more pictures but blogger was giving me a hard time.

I actually think Sean Hannity is really cute but I have had others say the same as you. I don't know about hot but he's got that sparkle in his eye and has charm and personality.

Will come back with a new box with added comments....(LOL) Thanks for the link too......
It is important (I feel) people need to know about the children and our justice system. Appreciate it.

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

In ref to 24: Pleeeeeeeeeease say you read Jimmyb’s post on the next episode!!(of what Jack does to the liberals) If you didn’t you are totally missing out along with my response…The post is a classic. I have a link to that post on my blog. Please if you go and want to…leave a copy of your response on mine too…I will get a good laugh from it. (LOL)

The ratings do not surprise me, I loved it and like you said more Americans are interested in these type shows these days post 9/11. However, when it comes to Hollywood selecting their own for who wins awards, crap like Syriana will top things. I have dated two Hollywood directors from my past, and one still does the Oscars for the votes. It all depends on who is in the click for the winners. Totally bias and rigged, a waste of time for the network in my opinion. Polls show these days less and less people are watching these award programs.

Photos: Oh my goodness, these are more sexy!! Sorry Patrick….young at heart here. (LOL) Those are hotties….Sean is a HANDSOME MAN…whooo!! With age though I am finding others older too that I am attracted to like Fred Barnes, Brian Wilson, John (from the heartland) shoot…can’t think of the spelling of his last name…and Jim Angle. (LOL) I love looking at them on Foxs….you can definitely tell I am an addict. (LOL)

Dionne said...

Patrick: Yah, sorry you did a good job on picking the actual guys just not the actual pics :-). And I would've had more if blogger hadn't been acting up on me. I wanted to put Kurt Russell and a couple of others too but maybe I'll have to have a part 2.

Just be happy that you had the initial great idea :-).

Dionne said...

Suzie: Yes, I read Jimmyb's post on 24 and loooooved it. I actually responded to it on the blogs4bauer site.

I got a huge kick out of how much you and Rebecca are like me and so glad you both enjoyed this post.

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

That is so funny...I agree we all DO think alike and enjoy each other (smiling) So thrilled to have met you both....look forward everyday to all of your comments. Makes my day!! (smiling)

Back over to jimmyb..did you read my comment on there?? My crazy sense of humor? (LOL)about the Pro-Victory parade and Dean etc.

Just linked you again....(LOL) and posted two more times. It is cloudy and yucky here I am computer bound....and addicted w/Fox in the background.

Rivka said...

o.k. WHY Didn't you put Pres. Palmer up on one of the hot 5??? I think he is extremely hot. you need to make an adjustment to your post..
I saw him on 24 for the first time last Sun. night, and I about died! He has those caring, yet strong eyes.. he is tall and handsome, and definately has a more attractive skin tone than Sean..;-)

Shoot, listen to us.. IF our hubbies only knew.. WEll, i think mine does. My husband tells me all the hotties on Fox news.
He likes: Heather.. what's her name..Umm..
And the chick with the high eyebrows and blonde hair, kind of had a nose job.
There is a girl with long, dark, shiny hair, HE thinks she is the best next to Heather.. what's her name.
I like Harris Faulkner.. she is gorgeous and is from Channel 9 on kcmo.. I think they fixed her eyes cuz they used to get real big, then go down.. BUt they don't do that anymore.

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

My sister and I have been in love w/ Rick Leventhal forever. Actually during one of the hurricanes I wrote Shep-Fox Report/Studio B (he is from Miss)and ask if they would send Rick over to Gulf home area...sure enough he left N.O. and was over there covering Ivan the following day.

I love the reporting though from Steve Harrigan...he is awesome...esp. during Katrina. (smiling)
Saw Rebecca's comment and had to babble on....(LOL)

Rivka said...

That was who i was thinking of.. Rick Leventhal.. Man he is awesome!!!
Hey.. a great idea for a post chatter.. the babes at fox!! both men and women..
There are plenty!! ( i don't mean that you are into the babes -girls, but you know what i am trying to say.. LOL ;-0)

Dionne said...

Rebecca: The reason I can't put Palmer up there is because I don't know what his politics are in real life. On the show he was fairly conservative (although they mention one time that he is supposed to be a democrat) but so is Jack Bauer and unfortunately in real life Kiefer Sutherland isn't a conservative--bummer that it is.

But you need to get seasons 1-4 of 24 on DVD and you'll see why I liked him so much as a president. On season 1 he is a senator running for president and then in seasons 2 & 3 he is the president. In season 4 he comes back mid-way and saves the day and you just cheer.

Yah--Suzie you need to look through the Fox News people and put up pics of the some of the good ones. Although to be honest besides Sean I'm not that impressed with anyone except for Shep and his political views irritate me a lot of the time.

Rivka said...

Ok suzie.. What about Campaign Carl?? I think he is hot.

Rivka said...

Oh yeh.. I am getting a
l-i-t-t-l-e carried away!! Yes, i forgot, you posted conservatives, so i can see why you didn't post Palmer.. SOrry..

Dionne said...

Rebecca: It's okay to get carried away, this has been fun. Who is campaign Carl??

Gayle said...

Yeah, we were disappointed here too when they killed Palmer off! We're probably going to miss him for the rest of the season.

I didn't know Keifer Southerland wasn't a conservative! That's another bummer! Darn!

I did like your pics... all of them. And I'm glad you included President Bush! :)

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

Rebecca-Campaign Carl?? that reports from the white house during day??...I'm assuming..Oh he is a bit young for me. (LOL)

James Manning said...

Chatter, I'm still hurt over the loss of Palmer. But I think you can put him on the list. He's a lefty - but in the mold of a moderate.

As for good looking men - you girls have to be kidding me about Bush. Sorry, Denzel Washington is a Republican - he should probably be first. Now, I'm not for looking at men, but I'm not blind and secure enough in my mandhood to feel comfortable telling you ladies that Sean Hannity and George Bush are not good lucking men.

That's like me saying Hillary Clinton is a hottie. OK, for a middle-aged rich white woman, she's not bad - but she wouldn't make my list of most attractive lefty women.

I'll give you Bruce and Mel - but Sean will have to do something with his eyebrows. That's just my thought - but hey, I'm in love with Halle Berry and Alicia Keys so you can take my input with a grain of salt.

Lone Pony said...

Bush is too good looking. ;-)

Dionne said...

Gayle: Ditto!!

James: LOL--I am still laughing over your comments. You crack me up. I'm glad to know you are secure in your manhood :-). I'm never afraid to say when a woman is pretty so men shouldn't be nervous about commenting on the looks of men.

Now, I understand that not everyone appreciates Sean and W but comparing them to Hillary--come on, give me a break. What you've got to understand about Sean and Bush is its their charm and the way they carry themselves that helps make them attractive. I analyzed one time why George Clooney seems more attractive in his 40's than his 20's. It has a lot to do with his confidence, charm and the way he carries himself than his straight looks.

I was going to post more conservative men but blogger was being stubborn and not letting me post more pics. So I will do a part 2 and be sure to include Denzel--although I think he is just conservative in a few areas, not sure about everything.

Thanks again for the laughs :-).

Dionne said...

LP: You are right :-).

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

I was a Freedom Rocker.

But in fact I enjoy:

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band; King Crimson; Dream Theater; Therion; Bill Nelson; Gentle Giant; Warren Zevon (who I want to return as); ELO; Status Quo; Johnny Cash (his last 2 albums were THE BEST!); Black Sabbath; Yes; Foghat; Mose Allison; The Obsessed; Rob Zombie; Ministry; Rush; Brand X.

Um so veiter.

ABFreedom said...

Ok LMC... this is like one of them girls only posts... You know us men only can think of one thing ... LOL

Dionne said...

BZ: Very cool!!

ABF: Oh, come on aren't you secure in your manhood like James to tell us your opinion :-)? Just kidding!! I was thinking that as Rebecca, Suzie and I were talking back and forth that it would be a miracle if I would be able to get a guy to weigh in on this after all the comments :-). You could always take the Music Rocker quiz.

Dionne said...

I was talking to my husband about this post tonight. It was very interesting to me. He thinks more of Condi than Ann Coulter which shocked me. But listen to this. He said Hillary didn't just get tapped with the ugly stick but beat with it. I couldn't stop laughing :-).

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

As I was reading your comments on where I left are so funny. (LOL) then the last comment from you LMC about Hillary...I thought...WOW, LMC should dig up the photos of Hillary when she married Bill..and the Ark days. GOSH, the ugly stick more like the TREE!! (LOL)

Dionne said...

Suzie: Again great minds think alike. That is EXACTLY what I told my husband. She was so scary looking during her early feminist days when you weren't supposed to care how you looked. I actually think she's improved a lot since then so you have got to give her a little credit, I guess :-).

Assorted Babble by Suzie said...

Left you a message on your previous post. I think I understand why our blogs are not showing each other's links in the "Truth Laid Bear" and the "Who Links HERE"....on our sidebars.

juanitagf said...

It's okay by my that your pic of Michael Moore wouldn't post. Yikes!

Dionne said...

Jgf: Yah, tell me about it :-).

Rivka said...

I am withyou on, ELO; Black Sabbath; Yes; Foghat; Rush. Also, I love, Dave brubeck..(spelling), ella, Patsy Cline, Sarah Vaughn, Boston, O.k.. i must say Van Halen with David Lee Roth.. But, Rush was the most incredible.
Bachman turner overdrive BTO!! Now they were awesome! The Steve Miller band.
There is more, but I haven't listened to the stuff in ages.. Into talk radio and news shows too much.. :-(

Rebekah said...

Yeah, what jgf said. I don't have to see Michael Moore, that's okay... :)

As for my results(which are strange because I just guessed 'cause I don't like any rock)

You're stuck in the 70s - for better or worse
Crazy hair, pot soaked clothes, and tons of groupies
Your kind showed the world how to rock
Is that freedom rock?... Well turn it up man!

Okaaay... That's like, totally me, dude. Rock on, you know? :~

Actually, I'm more Loretta Lynn than Joan Jett.
