Just a check in…

Sorry folks, I’m so slow to getting all of the quotes from Al posted here. Don’t worry, they are not lost forever and I’ll get them up at some point. In the meantime, it’s been so nice hearing Al on KABC a tiny bit. I wish he’d be back. I lost interest in Talk Radio after he was gone.

3-drink minimum

  • saudi arabia is in the 7th century, no let’s be nice and say they’re in the 9th century. (about the woman in trouble for driving her sick husband to the hospital)
  • when you say British citizens, you’d think the Pet Shop Boys were blowing up people on the subway (about the media depiction of the terrorists)

  • oh the leftover Gay-Pride Parade music is playing (coming back from a break)
  • you’re worried about yourself, clean up your group (to arabs and Muslims)
  • if I’m standing at the ATM machine… and it’s 2am and there’s nobody there… and you hear footsteps… and look back and you see a young black male or older black female approaching you… does it make you more racist? no, it just makes you smart. chances are there’s no problem but you’re more cautious.

  • you give the rat a cookie, the next day he’s comes for a glass of milk.

Snowy weekend from Vegas

  • Al talked about his horrifying (snowy) weekend trip on the 15 to and from Vegas.
  • If you can’t predict that there’s a snowstorm coming in a few hours, you can’t predict what the weather’s going to be like in 5, 10 or 50 years (making fun of these idiot Global Warming fools)
  • Some woman on a radio station out of Barstow suggested motorists pull over and have a cup of coffee. Where, in a bush?
  • Mentioned there were even women pulling over and peeing while standing. Never seen anything like it.
  • Shortcut to Vegas: Right on La Cienega and left on La Tiera and you see that sign that says LAX?

  • Except for the fact that I thought I was going to die, it was pretty
  • If you don’t know how to drive in the rain, you can’t live in Florida
  • The biggest thing I forgot about the snow is that you become blind
  • During Mark Berman ad, Al said something like "…and their office is [down there] where there’s guaranteed to be no snow."
  • Tonight the global warming lies
  • 7000 years ago, the earth was much warmer than it is now according to the book of tonight’s guest

  • Yasser Arafat has already left the planet so we’re off to a great start (after saying he thought it might be "it" for Fidel Castro when he fell recently… also this was after Al was talking about how John Kerry is now blaming Osama Bin Laden for losing the election on November 2)
  • Which one of the 10 commandments does the left consider dangerous?
  • When you don’t stand for anything yourself, you have to demonize your opposition
  • Let’s see the Democrats "contract with America"… write it down. They’ll never get elected.
  • Closest thing to their contract with America is look at California… lab for what happens when Democrats rule… guess what? the lab rat died.
  • Character is what counts… has nothing to do with your religious values or beliefs… it’s one thing: when no one is looking, what do I do… when the light is not shining… key is when the camera is not there, would you take the money out of the cash register… people would good character wouldn’t even think about doing that… wouldn’t matter if the camera was on or not.
  • Imagine Gary Trudeau referring to Dr. Rice as "Brown Sugar." On her worst day, she’s smarter than all these people (shameless disgusting bigots on the left) put together
  • Mel Gibson will not pay a penny for advertisement/marketing to promote Passion of the Christ Oscar nomination… do you think for a minute Hollywood would award this movie? Money well-saved, Mr. Gibson
  • Even Clinton’s character is better than Annan’s… when that man dies, they’ll be screwing him into the ground

  • It shows that he’s a dysfunctional human being and I really mean that (about Clinton)
  • …has a horrible personality flaw which is he cannot accept responsibility for his bad behavior… has it as a very dangerous part of his character
  • Joked about the 86 year old who was planning to travel to the Philipines to "sleep with little girls"… At 86, would be sleeping a lot. Sleeping with a 60 year old would be robbing the cradle.
  • Marriage was created to "bridle men;" otherwise, they’d be like gay men… sleeping with everything that walks

  • We promise Nicolette Sheridan will not be jumping into the arms of Mickey Mouse
