    From MarksFriggin'

    Howard said he changed satellite radio. He said he was able to make Sirius so big that they merged with XM. Howard said the guys at Sirius needed him to make them huge. Howard said he took a huge gamble to do that and it worked. Howard said he came over there and did his Oprah move. He said now they won't give him his fucking bonus. He said that was the whole reason he came there. Howard said he has to sue them for that. Howard said that's why he's fucking bitter.

    Howard said he pulled off a miracle for them and they don't want to pay him. He said ''fuck you'' to them. Howard said when they're all sitting in a room almost bankrupt they'll tell you anything. Howard said it's bullshit. Howard said he re-filed the suit and he's hoping the new judge will see the point. Howard said people think he's ugly and gross so he shouldn't be making money. Robin said it's like it's okay not to like Howard. She said that these other guys have done things that are really bad but they don't do them on their show. Robin said Clinton still goes around being honored. Howard said he gives out the Kennedy Center Honors. Howard said everyone is ashamed of him though.

    Is this from today? If so can you imagine the yes men agent and lawyers blowing smoke up his ass how he deserves to be recognized for the xm subscribers that don't even listen to him. All based on interpretation of contract language.

    Everyone can see how equating a guy who got sexual favors in the Oval Office while presiding over an economic boom with a guy who came up with lesbian dial-a-date is spot-on.

    Robin called out his bullshit numerous times today. I was actually proud of her.

    Very odd. After the last lawsuit which was dismissed when she (and Gary) blew a lot of smoke up Howard's ass

    Yeah, when Howard was talking about "Crooks" work harder than people with jobs.. Robin said yeah, but they don't work every day like the rest of America and spend all of their energies on landing the big Heist...or something like that. Reminded me of Howard

    If he left after his 2000 contract (when he was in the prime of his popularity) to go to Sirius, maybe I can understand him saying he took a huge risk going to satellite.

    The problem is he left after 2005 when he was basically being bullied off the air. His show was getting censored to death and he was getting kicked off of multiple markets. He would give hours of rants about how George Bush and the FCC were trying to ruin him. He would warn fans that he could get kicked off the air at any time. The E! network didn't even want his show anymore. There was no risk going to Sirius and getting 500 million after his terrestrial radio career was tarnished.

    I'm not a Clinton fan by any means, but:

    One guy led the world's only superpower for eight years and helped bring down Slobodan Milosevic.

    The other guy became a multimillionaire to ripping off other DJs and exploiting drunks, cripples, damaged young women and retards.

    Robin really needs to shut the fuck up.

    The half a billion was in escrow too...so even if Howard tanked and Sirius went under, he'd still get his money. There was absolutely zero risk.

    Loved it when Howard told the story again (for at least the 100th time) about how the Sirius execs compared him to a fine piece of art. It's so obvious they knew in advance that Howard can be easily influenced by excessive ass-kissing and that was part of their sales pitch.

    I know, if anyone needed more proof that he's totally delusional they have it now.

    I like how he thinks he is the end all be all. The only thing that he has going for him is he has alot of money. It eats him up that everything he touches eventually goes to shit marriage,being a dad,numerous attempts at movies,his radio carrer,and hopefully this current marriage. He can't stand that Sirius just looks at him as a DJ like Jay Thomas,and they probably like Jay Thomas better right now.

    I think this is the first time Howard said it was Leon Black who called him the "Leonardo da Vinci of radio." And to think Howard named his rescue cat after him.

    And since when has Howard had an "Oprah move"?? I thought he was mad because he didn't have an Oprah move.
