Welcome back let's find out if -- get anything -- so far.
For that go to TVs he Levy eighty -- great -- to -- a bicycle.
I don't get it.
How is an obvious.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Go a headset that even I -- did you I wouldn't that would have been obvious.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- And yes yes standards and practices would like -- to note that dot should be -- -- and -- OK -- -- that -- you very concerned about that.
-- Kevin you said that under the Geneva convention we can just shoot these guys.
I'm not entirely sure -- true but who.
I love how one of the defendants shattered at the judge quote maybe they're going to kill us and say that we are committing suicide and I read and I was like -- you bring it up.
Not a good idea that -- understand -- -- lawyer.
-- Un uniformed combatants terrorists and spies are also subject to summary execution under the -- conventions -- not covered as prisoners of war.
So I think these guys meet at least one of those.
But that's the problems.
And it was -- human find out.
When we greatly candidate that would allegedly we're totally using it wrong win it doesn't -- yeah definitely good news for sure yeah you can we gotta tell everybody but yeah.
Actual lawyer on the table I can say that you're not using allegedly not.
He's using it properly -- you hit it.
-- -- in 2008 all of these guys all these defendants -- they're gonna plead guilty to that could speed up their martyrdom.
Now the arraignment actually here they deferred entering any pleas of sorts of not to -- with the martyrdom anymore.
Since I find that it.
You know do you find it interest I don't care few people -- that.
Are ready -- you didn't agree with -- that these guys are having fun you have to understand that passing around magazines and taking off the chart is a pretty good Sunday program.
I'm sure it is and I think Greg would probably enjoy that with a bunch of other -- -- passing around magazines on a Sunday -- I would like a bunch of other -- That's until it is that's imprisoning his.
No it's my Sunday afternoon I didn't realize -- -- was a prison.
We should point out the magazine in question here was the come economy.
Like you're passing around you have mechanics weekly or something that.
I've ever had Kevin how boring as the trial have to be reading the economist -- can you know that's -- -- she shot the economists is -- some -- -- I don't read it's I wouldn't.
That's -- you have just -- just make.
Cheap shots -- from -- is a wonderful there that's.
Related to it.
Yeah but if these guys aren't careful by the way they're gonna end up with contempt of court charges added on to you know death sentence and I think that it that's my point I was making Iran and nothing to lose -- -- absolutely.
Well they could be thrown out of the courtroom if they become that they created to servants everywhere they go they go back to the company will sell the whole point here is that they're putting on -- show.
That's quite an enter guilty plea they're putting on a show for the world to see and that's -- the only enjoyment that they're getting out of it.
Although it's like those horrible sketches say they have like six years to put -- shown together making a Paper airplane that's pretty.
-- if you could come up like one clever sketch -- synthetics and I think it's okay senate it apparently his beard is dyed Hannah read.
Throughout is that the Katy Perry -- terrorist but.
They had a clever sketch that it was about a -- When it.
I think it would just -- -- cut sketched -- just -- agree with you I I think the script is funnier than you do but I have absolutely no doubt that -- telling the truth here.
That's been played -- may fifth and speaking of funny here what about Peewee Herman.
Right look at these so Littleton -- -- -- -- -- at least like a slightly more clever either worked Peewee Peewee Herman some of them wanted to.
That's pretty funny and -- -- -- that agent double little smirk that that they go Pee-Wee woman.
What my day so watch it far Kevin I agree let us know hasn't really gone after the president all that much but is not because he's so cool now.
No I think I think they'll they'll tell you that that what you have to competing explanations one is that they killed the -- for political reasons.
And needed to kill the -- because it wasn't funny thing I don't know how much evidence there -- percent in life killings gets that aren't funny -- -- -- -- Movie and.
Somebody's not gonna get ask the host SNL.
Yeah I would like to say that I disassociate myself yeah I think I'm pretty safe from that.
I'm Greg you brought up a Maureen Dowd column in which -- and -- writers said they wanna make fun of Obama -- should investors should run the sketch.
But I think the fact that they ran the sketch at dress and I'm assuming it it must not have gotten a good reaction from the crowd and that's why they killed.
Boy you really are just tell in the line accident didn't know how did you know it's not.
Yeah actually -- -- -- editors that they pay tons of money to fix the jokes like a deal with every other -- If -- -- and they ran they ran an -- -- and like it should address and is like pretty shortly after that they start.
They kill -- -- all the time -- -- but they also fix things all the time.
They look at how -- you once again dis associating my necessary to warn.
-- know your loyalties lie he can't.
Did Biden say he's pro gay marriage -- -- what we saw Biden speaking his own mind I gotta say though I really don't think that.
Biden said anything that's much different from what Obama says Biden said quote.
I'm actually -- I'm absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men women marrying women and heterosexual men marrying women are entitled to the same exact rights.
Which is basically what Obama says about it is still on involved view is supported civil unions -- -- I think it's true I think what he said go to David Gregory on Sunday was.
I mean it was just so shy of saying that we believe in.
Marriage rights for everyone and I think that if he could if you headed druthers if he was out of office and he would say that.
And -- I -- because he's still politician in their.
And really campaign in the air -- let's see if they can because.
I think he's not gonna complete that thought.
I -- and open a store called druthers.
We'll be Brothers Brothers yes and in any case he -- if you're looking for your druthers and you know what the -- have a market that's our why wouldn't put makes cents.
I don't understand.
Them -- that.
It's been a pencil mustache wax that was.
I do look like I should be on the cover of some kind of weird syrupy bottle yet for it.
The top hats and ropes to tie down women in the early 19100 -- right to be like sitting in the back of -- ever covered wagon.
That's -- selling little test tubes -- the blue liquid and tonic yes.
Elixir is if you do well at.
-- -- -- I thought that was like.
Five minutes worth of stuff and might Pee-Wee Herman was -- better.
-- you brought up the fact that Obama is just being a politician on the gay marriage issue wasn't he supposed to be different bill that's what I was taught.
You know -- time rock.
Is it -- Yes I also said that while it's great that Dick Cheney is now pro gay marriage to Cheney waited until he's in in office and then out of office yeah that's what it.
Charles Barkley says Ron he's gonna lose.
Kevin you're right about Barkley in 95 he considered running for Alabama governors -- public -- Our Greg you're wrong Barkley didn't change parties because of -- -- change in 2006.
Telling Rolling Stone quote I was Republican until they lost their minds.
And in 2007 he said he was an independent saying quote Republicans are full of it Democrats are slightly less well.
That's good campaign so that people don't.
That's all I got have a when he goes driving he's usually full of it and buy it I need -- -- -- Wouldn't -- eleven a bicycle making it.
