Bsi 1,229.30 +19.56 +1.59%

The week ends on a positive session.


Oprah Winfrey (HARPO) 129.32 +21.69 +16.77%

News of Harpo's demise have been greatly exagerated as not long after media speculation that the mogel's empire was waning comes news that Oprah's support of Barack Obama is estimated to have contributed around one million votes to the Illinois senator's primary campaign.

You better reckanize!  Fuck with me and I'll do you like I did Chappelle!  Dark Crusaders in the House!


Wendy Williams (WWIL) 8.12 -1.32 -13.98%

One of the worst things to happen to talk shows -- unless you're Tyra Banks.

Makes my show look like "The McNeil-Lehrer News Hour".  You didn't think I know about "McNeil-Lehrer", did you?

Bsi 1,209.74 -17.79 -1.45%

The day ends in negative territory sparked by news of an arrest warrant being issued for one Earl Simmons (DMX).

What's My Name?!?... Seriously -- I have no idea.  I'm not very smart.

Analysts haven't expected much from Simmons since an interview published this spring in XXL.

XXL:Are you following the presidential race? DMX: Not at all.
XXL:You’re not? You know there’s a Black guy running, Barack Obama and then there’s Hillary Clinton.
DMX:His name is Barack?!
XXL:Barack Obama, yeah.
DMX:What the fuck is a Barack?! Barack Obama. Where he from, Africa?
XXL:Yeah, his dad is from Kenya.
DMX:Barack Obama?
DMX:What the fuck?! That ain’t no fuckin’ name, yo. That ain’t that nigga’s name. You can’t be serious. Barack Obama. Get the fuck outta here.
XXL:You’re telling me you haven’t heard about him before.
DMX:I ain’t really paying much attention.
XXL:I mean, it’s pretty big if a Black…
DMX:Wow, Barack! The nigga’s name is Barack. Barack? Nigga named Barack Obama. What the fuck, man?! Is he serious? That ain’t his fuckin’ name. Ima tell this nigga when I see him, “Stop that bullshit. Stop that bullshit” [laughs] “That ain’t your fuckin’ name.” Your momma ain’t name you no damn Barack.

And while we're at it... The Dirtbombs


The term "Veepstakes".  While it's true that Barack Obama has a difficult decision to make, the weight being placed on his choice and the speculation involved in the cable news coverage far exceeds the actual value of any Vice Presidential candidate.

"Let's see, I need someone who'll help me carry Ohio, Florida or one of the southern states."

"No, they have to be white."

"Let's try for someone with a little more experience -- someone older."

"How about someone who didn't own slaves?"

"Fuck it -- just get me Evan Bayh on the phone"

Cause, at the end of the day, you vote for the name at the top of the ticket.
