Subject: Argus Hamilton
I enjoy the humor of Argus Hamilton, because it is a variation of the humor of Leno, Maher, Stewart, et. al., yet it remains intellectual and pointed, without being snobby or inane. Bring him on!
Lisa, welcome back!
I partially agree with Ken. Argus Hamilton can be somewhat amusing at times,
but he doesn't seem to be in the same league with Leno, Letterman and Conan.
But then, if those big names no longer write any of their own material, they can
afford to hire the very best joke writers!
Years ago when I used to listen to Paul Harvey (in my Nixon Republican days),
he quoted Hamilton often, if that says anything.
But if you decide to leave Argus in, I hope your audience is cool with that.
(Yes kids, we baby-boomers own that slang word all the way back to the 1950's.)
By the way, great cartoon today of Super Bush hanging by 9/11 threads. Now that's
visually cleaver! It's a keeper.
M'dear, it's your own site. You can pick and choose, bit by bit, amid the whole world of material. You don't have to listen to anything but your own formidable insight and wit. Not even this. luv ya, Davy
Let Ken do the one liners for awhile, then let's vote.- Duggly
Yes.... Dump him. Otherwise great site. Donation will be coming. Always save you for end of day.
I find Argus Hamilton to
be quite clever and amusing.
If someone doesn't find find him funny they either don't have an intelligent sense of humor or are a Republican. Freddie
Hamilton is acceptable, I get his humor which is easier to understand than most of what W has to say and it's nice to here from "the rest of the world".
Your website is great!
Argus Hamilton is great!
That e-mail isn't legitimate. It is most likely from one of the imbeciles at Free Republic.
Argus is okay. Can Ken do
Truly sorry that Ken
doesn't enjoy Argus but we do. Actually, his comments are carried daily in the
Albuquerque Journal so we see more of his quotes than you cite. Hope you receive
more comments in favor than opposing.
Thank you all for your comments.
I didn't take Ken's comment in an adverse way, I think he is just curious if other's feel the same way he does. Some do, most don't.
I try to offer diverse forms of political humor and I think Argus falls into that category.
