Do not use a funeral to promote health care. Lord, hear our prayer.

O.M.G. where is Bernie and Cardinal Egan?

I thought it was a little crass for Nancy Pelosi to comes out no less than one hour after Ted Kennedy’s death seeking to use his death to catapult national health care to passage, but this is almost unbelievable here.

I now know for certain that “separation of church and state” only applies to conservatives.  And it’s okay to use a funeral with little children to push a political agenda?  I think not.

“As my grandpa said so often in every part of this land that every American shall have decent healthcare as a fundamental right and not as a privilege.  We pray to the Lord”

“Lord, hear our prayer.”

And “God Bless.”

Cable Ratings: Glenn Beck on top – Keith Olbermann on bottom

A couple of delicious little tidbits appear in the Thursday night (08.27.09) cable ratings.

Glenn Beck again tops out in the demo rankings, despite the strong arm “boycott”  initiated by Color of Change.  I sent my letters last week to the cowardly companies that responded to the thugs telling them I am boycotting them.

Secondly, Keith Olbermann is tanking.  He’s #10 in total viewers and #13 in the demo, losing to Rachel Maddow and Campbell Brown.

See Newsbusters for a complete list, including total viewers.

Here are the demo rankings (ages 25-54) Nielsen TV Ratings :

  1. Glenn Beck — 762,000
  2. The O’Reilly Factor– 757,000
  3. Hannity –691,000
  4. On The Record w/ Greta Van Susteren—623,000
  5. Special Report with Bret Baier– 446,000
  6. Fox Report w/Shep Smith–418,000
  7. Larry King Live—378,000
  8. FOX & Friends- 357,000
  9. Nancy Grace – 347,000
  10. Anderson Cooper 360—343,000
  11. Campbell Brown- 337,000
  12. Rachel Maddow Show—279,000
  13. Countdown w/ K. Olbermann– 276,000

I guess Olbermann will still be claiming he is #1 in some sub-section of a sub-section of a sub-section of viewers.  Nobody’s buying it.

Notice:   Fox always takes the top 6.
