    The singing--even Underwoods--wasn't that bad. Actually, pretty decent. But the segway in between, with piss poor unconvincing acting and no chem, in between, didn't make the music worth waiting around for. Heck, the commercials were easier to bear than the dialogue.

    btw: great comparison re. Poison/MC....and I concur re. Faith Hill/underwood. But Underwood actually works ok in the Sunday Night Football gig, where imo, Faith Hill was wasted talent there. Faith was above it, while it's about par for the course for CarryU.

    That would seem to be a problem, but if you want to get technical, 4th Century Greek holymen arent really known to inhabit the North Pole either.

    Yep, that song fits a "yeller" like Underwood to a tee.

    Yeller = Someone who has to "yell" their way through the tough parts. Real talent carries the note(s) through seamlessly.

    but if he put on a lot of weight, grew a beard and wore a thick red suit, he might be able to handle it.

    When I was a kid, I believed Santa Clause was an old white man.

    Later on, I discovered 'he' was actually 'they', and 'they' were hispanic. ;)

    Is that like a "white hispanic?" At least, according to The Paper of Record? Or is it not controversial enough?

    Let's not let facts get in the way of little Lefty minds blaming Fox for everything under the sun. With a lil' luck, maybe Ed Schultz will pick up on it and call Kelly a slut...

    I'm pretty sure we're just talking about something a Fox anchor said on Fox. Long way from 'everything under the sun.'
    Is there a reason we shouldn't talk about it?

    Being that Turkey is far closer to the Caucuses than most countries, they are indeed considered Caucasian...

    She doesn't need to be defend. It's a non-story made up by a jealous media.

    The little word ilk, is inherently discriminatory and invariably carries with it a condescending tone of implied insult. I'd like to see it disappear from this forum.

    Both of these men are hispanic. Is it controversial to say one is white and one is black?

    ^^^that's right. I never understood the big deal about "white hispanic", as though they are inconsistent or contradictory. I'm hispanic. And white. As are about 40 million people who live in Spain, and several other 10's of millions (if not 100's) who live in Argentina, Uruguay, and throughout SA, Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico...

    (and yes, I realize I posted up thread recognizing a distinction--light hearted, rolling with it).

    Anyone can take any subject, belief, comment, question, etc., etc., etc. and blame it all on Bush, the "Right," the "White," the "Old," another religion, ad infinitum.

    Jesus is love and eternal. What possible difference could it make as to what "color" He is? Would it not be better to follow Him than engage in useless and never-ending debates about nothing that matters?

    I am an American. Let freedom ring!

    one more time. She claimed it was a fact that they were white.
    1. She doesn't know if Jesus was.
    2. Santa Claus is fictitious.

    C'mon river--seriously?

    When she made the claim that Santa was white, she addressed her comments 'to the kids'--as in, in case they're are any kids listening who still believe in Santa. There is a universal image of Santa Clause. It permeates throughout Am. culture. From Miracle on 34th Street, to Red Nose Reindeer, and everywhere in between, including ever major mall in America, Santa is depicted the same--as a fat, old, white man. That's who he is.

    Is Paul Bunyon's race now going to be called into question?

    Superman's?

    Fred Flintstone's?

    She said what she said, for the benefit of children who might be listening.

    Here's the quotes, bolded:

    As for Jesus....I don't know if she really believes that--I'd venture she doesn't--but I'd give her the benefit of the doubt here, due to the context of the conversation. She was defending the traditional depiction of Jesus, which in America, as in Europe, Christ is generally depicted as a reflection of the majority of the people in the region--which in the US, historically, that's been white.

    She stated both as facts and then her 'panel' then tried to flip it around as if even questioning it was somehow ludicrous. Sure, she said "kids" but this wasn't romper room, this was a primetime alleged news show. Just because others throughout history have perpetuated the myth, it doesn't somehow exclude her from well-deserved ridicule for claiming it is fact.
