Geraldo Denounces Brooks Brothers Thugs

It's nice that fair and balanced Fox News is devoted to presenting both sides of the arguments, but employing loony tunes leftist Geraldo Rivera takes it a little too far. Here he is explaining how the same Brooks Brothers-clad roughnecks who stole the election from Al Gore are now robbing him of his precious socialized medicine:

I believe that what happened to healthcare is the same thing that happened to the presidential vote recount in Florida in 2000 when you had all those Brooks Brothers-wearing demonstrators that uh were so uh violent in their impassioned ah ah physical uh uh demonstrations preventing the physical recount of the votes. They, that was the template and now with the first the tea parties and now these town hall meetings, they now have figured out that Democrats have no guts.

No, what we've figured out is that Democrats have no minds. When is Geraldo's contract up, anyway?

This nonsense is proof that Geraldo must be living inside Cheech and Chong's pot smoke-filled van since Algore's shameful attempt to steal the 2000 election failed.

I will agree with his observation that the Democraps have no guts ... but most of us figured that out a long time ago. All bullies are cowards when someone stands up to them.

Too bad he didn't just stay in "Al Capone's Vault".

Has anyone seriously ever mistaken for a journalist? Maybe those to young to remember him in the 80's I suppose.

Every time I start to think maybe Geraldo is a reasonable guy he says something like this and destroys the illusion again.

THE biggest asshole on FNC, everytime a show brings him on I turn them off!

Me too TED. You know who else I change the channel on? When Ellis Hennigan comes on. BOR has him on sometimes, last night for instance. Similarly with Bob Beckel, who was on Hannity last nite. He keeps saying that king zero is the best president ever in the history of the world. I can't take it.

Stick to investigating Micheal Jackson's death, Mr Jerry Rivers.

In his spare time he is still digging out AL Capone's vaults.

Dan rather is still playing around with word in his spare time as well.

The left refuses to recognize what happened in the election of 2000. We had a rogue court system here in Florida so the Florida House voted to unseat the elected delegates and seat their own. The Fl Senate pledged to do the same thing the following day.
The US Supreme Court, seeing that the whole judicial system was about to be slapped down and have their power set back for many years by the Republican controlled congress, stepped in and reigned in the Fl Supreme Court. It really was as simple as that.

Geraldo? If he thinks government run healthcare is such a great idea tell him to move to Mexico and stay there.

Please go back to Afghanistan, Germaldo! Maybe you can reveal the position of our troops again!
How about another FALSEHOOLD claiming you witnessed a friendly fire incident when you were actually 300 miles away. I would call Geraldo a two-bit, sanctimonious, lying hack but I don't want to insult the hacks.

You will never find a better personification of everything that is insipid, dull, self-aggrandizing, and souless about tabloid journalism than Germaldo. Thankfully, he has been so marginalized by being on the weekends, no one takes him or anything he says too seriously.

Isn't there some hurricane Jerry can cover, and stand outside and tell us it's really windy and raining a lot?

Posted by: Alan at August 18, 2009 8:29 AM

Epic fail.

The votes were recounted at least three times by different groups. The counting was never stopped by noisy people outside.

What an ass clown.

Gerri is instigating,he is promoting increasing the intensity...this is what our media does best, rather than spending a minute of time investigating the issue...HEY MSM,WE DON"T GIVE A CRAP WHAT U THINK!!!

Why is this idiot on fox?

OOPS!!! Fair and balanced.

Speaking of Brooks Brothers, here is a list of people who wore their stuff. (hat tip:American Thinker)

At his second inauguration, Abraham Lincoln wore a magnificent coat specially crafted for him by Brooks Brothers. Hand stitched into the coat's lining was an intricate design featuring an eagle and the inscription, "One Country, One Destiny." Sadly, it was also the coat Lincoln was wearing when he was assassinated at Ford's Theater.

Ulysses S. Grant began his association with Brooks Brothers during the Civil War, when he ordered tailored uniforms for the Union officers.

Theodore Roosevelt wore a Brooks Brothers military uniform in his famous march up San Juan Hill.

Herbert Hoover preferred Brooks Brothers henley undershirts.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was frequently seen in a great cape specially made by Brooks Brothers for the U.S. Navy.

John F. Kennedy popularized Brooks Brothers' fashionable two-button suit when he wore it at his inauguration. Two-button Brooks suits were also favored by Gerald Ford and George Bush.

The list of luminaries also includes Bill Clinton.
This is all available on the Brooks Brothers website.

I've noticed the Geraldo's show is absolutely the worst produced show on TV. They can't go to a commercial break without screwing up something. They're constantly turning off a mike too soon or interupting someone with ill-timed music or worse.
I think it's hilarious.
