    I’ve never seen the movie. I read the book in 7th grade though.

    Remember seeing the movie in the theater and read the book too. Got an A+ on the book report too! My Liberal Roots are deep.

    Good old Willard. Still can’t get over that $20,000 loan comment. When I think back on it, I was 17 the summer I started college. My mother gave me a ride, some food and $100 before she turned back to make the 5 hour trek back to her house. It must have been nice getting a cool million and some stocks to start Willard on his journey to adulthood. Fucker.

      Willard can only think of money in terms of 000’s of dollars…he cannot imagine any other denomination. First the 10K bet at the debates, now the 20k loan from Parents. More evidence of that silver spoon he was born with!

      Lisa, my mother was a widow with three girls who had literally nothing to give us. I went to college on a full scholarship and worked every summer and during the year to pay for books and train trips home. All of us three girls learned that we had to stand on our two feet and make our own way in life, no matter how tough it got and we did. If I had heard someone like Willard say that I should ask my mom for money, I would have walked out of the room in disgust. This is a man with a pathological inability to identify with other people.

    Loved the book, has been one of my fave movies for forever. Loved watching it again recently. And fun seeing a “growed up” Scout. She was perfect in that role as a child. And Gregory Peck played that inspiring role beautifully. One of those great unforgettable movies.

    I notice that MSNBC is fixated on only one of PBO’s WHCD jokes – the one in which he jokes that his poll numbers are a remedy for his arrogance. They carefully avoid the beating he gave to Trump last year – which ironically is what most people remember about PBO & the WHCD. This MSNBC obsession with PBO’s poll numbers (even when it’s in the form of a joke) has not been lost on me.

        Okay, I see it now. I’m happy. That still doesn’t change my view about MSNBC being fixated – that is the only joke they show when advertising their coverage of the event tomorrow night.

        “How important is it that he has a good night?” Whatever, Tweety. Everything has to be a “break or make” event for PBO? It’s a WHCD roast for crying out loud!!!

      The thing everybody remembered about last year was, while he was doing that, he was in the Process of killing OBL.
      That was remarkable.
      Also, these celebrity ads ate a riot. First, the GOP says that Obama is losing support amongst everybody, even Klignons.
      Then, he proves them wrong, with several big rallies, so, they change their strategy to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton type ads, you know, THE ONE?
      This was already tried and failed. Not to mention, they were all played on cable for free, in a loop for days upon days!
      Same Celebrity Strategy??? What’s next- Moses ad? LOL!

        So true. And Rove and his super gang don’t realize that everything they show to say President Obama is the cool (celebrity) President is reminding all viewers of their ad that the President is … well … cool. Like his singing. And their guy is in no way associated with cool or celebrity and can’t sing. Major fail for both the WHCD and the damn ad. And the R party. And Willard.

          He’s cool AND he’s a fantastic president. Romney can’t compete.

          President Obama is the new “Teflon” president…..remember the press crowned that first to Saint Ronnie, then Clinton, then Bush II (although I think people were just afraid of GWB because of the Patriot Act).

            Yes, he’s the Teflon president – or whatever new innovation replaces Teflon, because he’s far and above those other guys! 🙂

    I remember the picture of the President at the table with other folks–can’t remember what was going on——?

    FCC rules today that broadcasters must post political ad info online—–who’s buying, amounts etc.
