    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 25, 2006
    COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN - SEPTEMBER 25, 2006

    "COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)

    Host: Keith Olbermann

    Topics/Guests:

    • WAR POLITICS: Richard Wolffe, Newsweek; Jonathan Alter, Newsweek
    • SEC. RUMSFELD UNDER FIRE AGAIN: Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton

    SEE UPDATE BELOW

    The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann sailed into his opening spiel like Jimmy Swaggert at a revival meeting. Makes sense. Olby, too, is basically just preaching to his choir. The NIE. Fox News. RNC mudslinging. Clips of Bill Jefferson Clinton: "conservative hit job". KO bellows:

    The end of George Bush's free pass! [1]

    Keith is on fiyah! Alert the blue bloggers!

    The lead story was about the NIE, a "sweeping assessment" according to KO, because the selectively leaked portion in the New York Times said so. Then it was off to tonight's grand installment of Attack the Media:

    Chris Wallace attempted to shift blame for 9/11, for the war on terror, if not for Iraq itself, onto Mr Clinton.

    Keep this in mind. We'll watch for Olby to play the clip where Mr Wallace does this.

    The Wolffe Man came over to play, but KO immediately shifted the discussion back to the NIE. Why didn't he ask him if Chris Wallace was some sort of evil Rovian right-wing extremist? Could it be because even Wolffie would tell Keith that Wallace's only crime was committing journalism? Yeah, shifting the topic back to the comfortable world of the NIE was the best move here. Then with a straight face, Krazy Keith asked The Wolffe Man if the adminstration was trying to "blame the media". Earth to KO: didn't you just do that yourself?

    After Great Thanksing Wolffe, Olby got back to Chris Wallace, the presumptuous bastard who dared to ask Bill Jefferson Clinton about UBL. KO ran more clips of B.J. attacking Wallace.

    Time for the next lefty to take the chair: Jonathan Alter. KO wanted to know if there was a pre-interview agreement breached, but Alter was reluctant to play along. He said it's another example of Clinton's temper, and added:

    I don't think there was any pre-ground-rules breached or anything like that, and I don't actually fault Chris Wallace at all.... I don't think he was right that somehow Fox was out to get him on this...

    Uh-oh. What's the discredited sports guy to do? Come up with a Krazy Keith Konspiracy (KKK). Tonight's version, it's all about the NIE:

    Did the whole thing give the Republicans cover on the NIE, divert the discussion for a while...

    Alter pointed out, quite sensibly, that the interview was taped on Friday, long before the NIE story broke. Another swing and a miss for Mr Merkle. Note that Mr Alter didn't buy into either of these spin points; they'll come up again later. However Alter bailed him out by changing the topic to how "devastating, devastating" the NIE leak was.

    Oh, wait, did we say "leak"? Back when the President legally declassified an NIE, Olby was up in arms, accusing the President of leaking and suggesting that he'd have to fire himself. But the discredited sports guy didn't raise a peep about this leak, or who did it, or whether that person should be fired. Different strokes for different votes.

    KO wanted to know if the "inspiration" they got from Clinton could "change the picture" for the midterm elections. That's our Olby: he'll find a pile of steaming dung and conclude that he's just been given a pony.

    Another tease [2] for Keith's "special comment" preceded the #4 story. It's "Capitol Hill testimony". Retired officers "testified" about how bad Rumsfeld is. It was a "Senate Democratic Policy Committee Hearing". Sounds pretty impressive, but what is Olbermann not telling us this time? For all his official-sounding descriptions, this was not a Senate hearing, or even a Senate session. It was a bunch of Democrats who gathered a handful of disgrunted ex-Generals in a hearing room for an election-year PR stunt. This pretend "hearing" is what Olby would call "politicizing the war on terror", if it had been held by a bunch of Republicans.

    It was all about "an administration not listening, and not telling the truth". The same famliar faces (Batiste, Hammes, Eaton, etc) were there crooning the same song they've been singing for months. Where was the news? There wasn't any! But even the lamest Democrat propaganda can find its way to The Hour of Spin.

    Then Olby promoed his "special comment" [3]:

    Former President Clinton getting sandbagged by Fox News...

    Does KO have short-term memory loss or what? Despite what his own guest said not ten minutes before, here's Krazy Keith, lying that Clinton was "sandbagged". Just how can someone be "sandbagged" in an interview where the ground rules said that no topics or questions were off the table? Olby is going to have to work overtime to make his latest attempt to attack the media fly.

    After oddball, there was--surprise!--a plug for the "special comment" [4]. You know, those special comments that, if you do them time after time, just aren't special any more? Yeah, those special comments. The #3 story was about the ban on liquid carry-ons. Uh-oh, we have a feeling we're going to hear "purported" very soon:

    The purported plot to blow up several passenger jets...

    Bingo! KO cited Ed Markey (D) before relegating the story to some rehashed NBC video. And then, just for a change of pace, Olbermann teased his "special comment" [5]. Plus car races (video reruns from MSNBC), Oprah, Mel Gibson, and that #@#@! special comment again [6].

    OLBY

    Of course, the book had to be pimped. Olby claimed it has "broken into the New York Times best-seller list at #18", neatly sidestepping the inconvenient fact that this list only has 15 slots. Classic Olbermann Onanism. KO slammed a car dealer who was promoting a sale by calling it a "jihad on high prices". We don't recall when he ever spoke out against any of the real, actual, genuine fatwahs or jihads that actually, well, kill people. Another victim was an old regular on Olby's enemies list: "Senator Rick 'Man on Dog' Santorum". His crime? He participated in a debate this afternoon with a Green Party candidate, but a Judge had ruled a few hours earlier that the Green guy didn't have enough signatures. The cable station decided to let him participate anyhow. And this makes Santorum evil, why? Don't ask. Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann has spoken.

    The "worst person" was...(there's hardly any suspense any more)...Bill O'Reilly. This was more Olbermann self-aggrandizement, as he claimed that O'Reilly "kept running away from me" at a Yankees game. What was Olby doing? Stalking him? Chasing him? Wagging a finger in his face, the same finger he uses to write Countdown? OK, show of hands, who wouldn't run away from this obsessed head case?

    MADMAN

    At long last, held until the last possible Nielsen minute, yet another "special comment". KO said Clinton was:

    ...bullied and sandbagged by a monkey posing as a newscaster.

    Attn: Send this tape to the Edward R Murrow Award Committee. Because Murrow always called other reporters monkeys.

    The nation's freedoms are under assault...

    The nation's marketplace of ideas is being poisoned by a propaganda company so blatant that Tokyo Rose would quit....

    Bill Clinton has spoken the truth...

    Oh, really?

    Clinton has taken forceful and triumphant action for honesty, and for us, action as vital and courageous as any of his Presidency....

    The Bush administration did not try...

    The President has been given the greatest pass for incompetence and malfeasance in American history...

    To hear him bleat and whine and bully at every opportunity...

    We should simply sigh and keep our fingers crossed until a grownup takes the job three Januaries from now....

    Mister Bush has now moved unmistakably and without conscience or shame towards rewriting history, and attempting to make the responsibility entirely Mr Clinton's....

    He keeps saying this, but where was the clip of "Mister" Bush ever saying it? Olby continues:

    As with all the other nefariousness and slime of this, our worst Presidency since James Buchanan, he is having it done for him by proxy. Thus the sandbag effort by Fox News Friday afternoon. Consider the timing. The very same weekend the National Intelligence Estimate would be released and show the Iraq War to be the fraudulent failure it is....

    Geez, this is exactly the KKK that your own guest shot down less than an hour ago. Welcome to Short Attention Span Theater.

    The kind of proof of incompetence for which the adminstration and its hyenas at Fox need to find a diversion in a scapegoat. It was the kind of cheap trick which would get a journalist fired, but a propagandist promoted, promise to talk of charity and generosity but instead launch into the lies and distortions...

    More Olbermann lies. As we noted, all topics were on the table for this interview. And as for Wallace being a propagandist, here's another example, one you won't hear from the discredted Keith Olbermann. Now why do you suppose he didn't tell you that? Olby continues:

    Mr Clinton was brave. Then again, Chris Wallace might be braver still. Had I, in one moment, surrendered all my credibility as a journalist and been irredeemably humiliated as was he, I would have started a new career selling seeds by mail....

    How could Krazy Keith possibly surrender something he doesn't have? Coming soon: Burpee Seeds, mailed to your door by Edward R Olbermann. Olby continues:

    Disney was the first to sell out its corporate reputation with The Path to 9/11...

    The basic plotline was this: because he was distracted by the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Bill Clinton failed to prevent 9/11...

    The right-wingers...who sandbag Mr Clinton with it at news interviewer, have simply skipped back its most glaring flaws....

    What in the Wide World of Sports is this madman talking about? Chris Wallace never once mentioned Lewinsky. Another Olbermann lie. KO continues:

    Who on earth conducted the Lewinsky witchhunt?...

    Um, that would be Janet Reno, who appointed the Special Prosecutor and even expanded his authority. Olby continues:

    Who distracted whom?

    See above.

    The distractions of 1998 and 1999, Mister Bush, were carefully manufactured and lovingly executed not by Bill Clinton, but by the same people who got you elected President...

    Janet Reno?

    We have your sleazy and sloppy rewriting of history, designed by somebody who evidently read the Orwell playbook too quickly...

    Bingo! Orwell reference.

    You did not try. You ignored the evidence.... Then you blamed your predecessor. That would be the textbook definition, sir, of cowardice...

    When was it again that "Mister" Bush blamed Bill Clinton? We kept waiting for this clip, just like we waited for the clip of Chris Wallace shifting the blame for 9/11 to Bill Clinton. But they never came. KO continues:

    You have failed us anew in Afghanistan, and you have now tried to hide your failures by blaming your predecessor. And now you exploit your failure to rationalize brazen torture, which doesn't work anyway...

    See above. And see Brian Ross.

    There it is, sir. Are yours the actions of a true American?

    How many times have we heard America's most dangerous demagogue rail at Tony Snow, or "Mister" Bush, or Rumsfeld, or any of them for being critical of reporters, or raising their voices to them, or looking cross-eyed at them. Do we not recall KO intoning about our "deep national shame" because someone in government dares to take exception with "those loyal Americans who disagree with his policies—or even question their effectiveness or execution"? All of a sudden, when it's B.J.'s policies that are the subject, Olby does a double-flip, full-reverse half-somersault and it's time to demonize dissent! Don't try to make sense out of it. It's OlbyLogic.

    This was Reverend Olby at his most sanctimonious. As each "special comment" tries to top the previous one, they become increasingly preposterous and frenzied. This latest embarrassment, chock full of unsubstantiated drivel, citing nonexistent statements, never documented, is so farcical it could seal Herr Olbermann's fate once and for all.

    NAME

    In the battle for viewers, Olby's Friday Night lovefest with B.J. Clinton couldn't even beat the O'Reilly Kasich Factor. In fact, KO just barely eeked out a third-place finish. Book sales aren't what they used to be: he's sunk to #117 on Amazon, while Mr Bill stands at #10. Hey, could that be why he didn't do his usual comparison between the two? Could that be why a planned report on Pakistan's Musharraf "exploiting the war on terror" to sell books was hastily replaced with another unhinged rant? We report, you decide. Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 9 [SEVERE].

    UPDATE: Inside Cable News has a strong reaction to tonight's "special comment":

    Keith Olbermann called FNC's Chris Wallace "a monkey posing as a newscaster" for his question that got Bill Clinton all riled up. This is beyond patently ridiculous. It's offensive.... It appears to me like it's almost as if he feels has to top himself with each new commentary. Be more outlandish...more daring...more critical. At some point he was bound to go too far. And tonight he did just that. Olbermann should apologize to Wallace.

    Amen.

    UPDATE: Condi Rice slams Clinton claims as "flatly false". That Condi is commenting suggests this ain't over by a long shot. Today asked two leading political analsyts to discuss Clinton v. Wallace again this morning; in a suprise both analysts were Democrats (Carville and Begala).

    UPDATE: The L.A. Times has published a terrific editorial by Andrew Klavan which begins "THERE'S NO LIMIT to what a man can do. "President Reagan used to say, "if he doesn't care who gets the credit." Former President Clinton's motto seems to be a little different: "There's no limit to how much credit a man can get, if he doesn't care what he's actually done."

    Former President Clinton's motto seems to be a little different: "There's no limit to how much credit a man can get, if he doesn't care what he's actually done."

    : Keith Olbermann has done it better than anybody.

    A Man Out of Time: ...a verbal surgical strike.

    Still awaiting the insights of Americ-nt


    Clear-Thinkers

    Hot Air: There's nothing so pathetic, or entertaining, as someone stupid trying to sound smart; the fact that it’s happening on national TV every night makes it almost too good to be true.

    The Poor Man Institute: Olbermann is as shrill as Tiny Tim sucking a balloon full of helium and then blowing sixty-four octaves above middle C on a giant dog whistle right in your ear.

    186k per second: kookier and more incoherent with every word

    The Cable Game: The invaluable Olbermann Watch caught Olbermann uttering epithets that would likely get a mere mortal TV talking head fired, or at least castigated.

    ICN: his successive criticisms on the Bush administration in recent weeks have gotten shriller and shriller. It appears to me like it's almost as if he feels he has to top himself with each new commentary. Be more outlandish...more daring...more critical. At some point he was bound to go too far. And tonight he did just that. Olbermann should apologize to Wallace.

    Done with Mirrors: Olbermann Becoming That Which He's Supposedly Been Attacking All This Time. In other words, the flip side of the coin of the sloppier, less responsible, cynical, time-elliding, history-selective, context-disregarding, willfully reductive, and manipulative parts of his mirror image in the ideologically rightist part of media.

    Newsbusters: In Latest Rant, Olbermann Demeans Wallace as 'Monkey,' Bush as Not 'True American''

    Ankle Biting Pundits I can't decide if Keith Olbermann is unhinged, mentally ill, supremely arrogant, smug, filled with hate, obsessed with conspiracy theories, or just plain stupid. I have to think all are somewhat true.

    The QandO blog: stunningly vicious and, as usual, dead wrong, Keith Olbermann speaks out, this time giving his opinion on the Clinton interview on Fox News Sunday.

    Hugh Hewitt/Townhall Blog: If you want an all-too-clear glimpse into one half of our political system's current derangement, Olbermann's rant provides it.

    JD,

    Even the preambles to your reviews have laugh-out-loud material! Now we need to work on getting you your own show. Perhaps Dan Abrams would consider giving you a "special comment" segment following Countdown?

    Who is Olby going to pass a check to tonight?

    Johnny,

    I'm surprised that more people haven't come to Olbermann's defense when he's charged with sucking up to Pres Clinton, by referring to the obvious policy difference between the two men that the interview exposed and to the fact that during the interview Olbermann must have immediately understood that Clinton has never watched his show....

    After all President Clinton did state:

    "What we have to do is to get back to a point, to thinking in America and to promoting honest debate and honest diffences, so that like, if you asked, and I would urge you to do this, if you interview somebody in the administration, no matter how much you disagree with them, don�t be snide. Give them a straight up chance to say how they disagree with you."
    :D

    True. If the former president watched Olby's show, he'd know that The Orange One never interviews administration officials (or GOPers who disagree with his spiel).

    Will the "orange one" point out, while pointing his finger at the camera, that "this is the finger I type with." Oh god, please no. The imagery of that burns my eyes.

    ssssssh please be quiet god is speaking..

    ssssssh please be quiet god is speaking..

    Mike Wallace has just written his pathetic son out of his will..

    Low ratings. Pathological liar. Host's skin is orange.

    And yet you spend all this time attacking him.

    He makes it so easy.

    Clinton was a weak moderate but he kicked the ass of Mikes' son.. Jonathon Alter is fantastic

    Clinton was a weak moderate but he kicked the ass of Mikes' son.. Jonathon Alter is fantastic

    less safe after 2700 lives and billions of dollars good going POS.

    It's early but so far I like this best...

    Keith in USA Today this morning on why he won't rant nightly "Howard Beale would come to me and say, 'Back off a little, pal.'" and "You can't do it every night. It becomes insincere; people who do it become caricatures of themselves."

    Keith on Countdown tonight - yet another a "special comment" on Chris Wallace's interview with Bill Clinton FROM THE GUY WHO HAD THE NEXT INTERVIEW !!! Woo Hoo!

    David Gergen mentioned Clinton's notorious temper tantrums on NBC earlier tonight. I'm glad Alter mentioned that fact.

    Robert... it is so amusing seeing you worrying about someone you ridicule daily... I wonder if Ryan Howard is afraid of a .225 slappy hitter... You are so transparent. Be afraid.. Be afraid... it is all you and your rightwing friends have. Give him a pretzel.

    It sure is nice to see that not all military people are as insipid as Bush treats them. Come on Rummy.,, die.

    Can someone please tell me why I am watching Lisa Meyers of NBC News on The O'Reilly Factor? Shouldn't she be on Countdown?

    Wow... moderates are allowed on Faux news ?

    Hmmmm....that's interesting. I'm watching it now.

    So whats happening tonight is KO is upset that his hero Bubba was asked a real hard question by Wallace and got mad..so to get back he's going to do a "special comment" where he going to blast Bush for not stopping Bin Laden and stop giving him a "free pass" on 9/11.

    Of course KO's also upset that the Wallace/Bubba interview got more attention than his pathetic one Friday with the check to Bubba.

    Perhaps those covering the media found his on-air donation so disturbing that they chose not to acknowledge it.

    When someone says "pay attention," they don't mean it literally.

    Wow... moderates are allowed on Faux news ? As someone who is used to Olb it would be quite suprising to see a host have on someone that is not kissing ass. SOMEONE WITH A DIFFERENT OPINION. ORielly can handle the pressure, Olbermann can't.

    O'lielly, you still here, boy? Didn't take the advice of trying self-immolation? Well here's how to do it, you piece of shit. Go to your nearest supermarket and buy some matches and liquid dishwashing detergent ("Liquid Joy" would be appropriate). Then go to your favorite gas station and fill a gas can with a gallon of premium. Go to an open area, preferably an open space on concrete (it's easier to clean up). Mix the entire bottle of detergent into the gasoline. Sit in the lotus position and douse yourself, light a match, and burn, baby, BURN! You won't be missed...

    Hell... how could have Buchanan been this bad ?

    There may be something to the idea of KO being left in the wake the Wallace interview. It might explain both KO's behavior and some of Clinton's reax to Keith's "questions". It had to be a bit frustrating for Keith, having so carefully planned his little donation stunt, to be completely overshadowed by what came before his sit down.

    You're pissed because Chris got all the attention, Olby. And he didn't even have to make a "donation." All other journalists whom I have heard being interviewed about this subject do not fault Chris for asking the tough questions.

    Speaking of giving passes, that's exactly what you granted the former president, Olby. At least it seemed that way. Did you shine his shoes on his way out?

    You never had credibility to surrender, you moron. OMG. And who was found guilty of lying and lost his law license, Olby?

    Anon... ah an attempted insult by a reichwinger. Your parents are tired of you.. they have asked me to ask you to move the hell out of their home. Dumbshit... are you too busy pining for the past or worrying about the future when people like you are put in camps.... a good place for the bombing to start.

    Is The Orange One going to cry? It looks that way.

    No throw to Joe? Maybe Joe doesn't want to speak to him.

    Unbelievable! Go Keith! This country needs you!

    Oh man, it's really funny watching your heads explode.

    Here we go...

    a monkey?

    Bush policies as bad as al Qaeda?

    slime

    A plot to cover up the NIE leak?

    hyenas?

    promise to talk about charity? FALSE

    "if I had surrendered all his credibility as a journalist... HAHAHA

    Who kept talking about Lewinsky??? Wasn't it Keith?

    Chris Wallace is a henchman for Bush?

    Hoo boy, this is cuckoo!!!

    Bush has been saying he was not President on 9/11?

    Orwell mention again

    You go girl!!!

    Coward

    Orwell again...1984 again...

    Has this guy read like 3 books and seen 3 movies?

    He needs to get out more. It's funny how the OlbyLoons think Keith is such a genius because he makes all sorts of literary references - except they don't realize that 80% of the time he was quoting the same handful of sources.

    Torture doesn't work!!!! Despite the evidence to the contary

    I love how KO has the Edward R. Murrow camera angles and then closes with the Murrow "turn" at the end.

    Someday I'd like to see KO do a rant IN a rain coat, in black and white, while smoking a cigarette,

    BTW, I just noticed that Scarborough attributed the Wallace quote about how big Clinton was to DC FishBowl. Think about that! It's a mediabistro site, cousin to TVNewser. Wallace made the statement many times to many news sources but they quote DC FishBowl. Now, Wallace DID get them an interview (http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowldc/?page=2) but WHY would that be a source for NBC News. Something to that.

    The three books and three movies were created by people who are now dead and cannot speak to disassociate themselves from The Orange One. He was frothing at the mouth, wasn't he?

    He likes Bartlett's quotations, doesn't he?

    O'lielly, end your life, you carbon-hog!

    More Olber-looney toons tonight. The most memorable and laughable part was when the olbernuttjob actually said that he had joernalistic credentials! Boy olby that must have been some BJ you gave Klinton after your show!. Tonogh mr Olbertoon you have cemented your name in the anals (not annals) of journalistic transparency. You are th Michale Moore of toady's nutty leftists.
    You put Santorum on your worst person toon tonight. WHY? It was the green party candidate who continues the debate despite not being eligible for the primary. Still hate Santorum because he won't give in to the homofascist agenda I see. Bill O ran from you at some baseball game and thus gets in the worst person?? Don't flatter yourself Olby, maybe he just is saving your sorry ass from the smackdown you so desperately deverve and needs. Olby you are the biggest craziest piece of shit on TV today.
    Calling a real journalist a "monkey"? What do you know about being a journalist? What are your journalistic credentials? Paying Klinton for an interview does not make you a jouranlist you big idiot. To call yourself a journalist just shows that you need mental help.
    To say the word honesty in even the same sentence as Klinton just show how very far removed from reality you are. Boy that must have been SOME BJ orangemann. You are one sick delusional puppy.
    But I do have to thank you orangemann for one thing. Your obvious lack of being able to grasp the truth and being such a left wing hack with a big mouth will do in the '06 elections what michael moore and the rest of the far left wing nutjobs did in '04- help conservatives get elected.

    Another masterpiece from the Murrow of our generation.

    I can hear the Koolaid filled heads of Freepers and Reichwing Nutters exploding all over the country!

    LOL !

    Uh, it's spelled M-O-R-O-N.

    The left goes into a frothing seizure whenever they think someone is questioning their patriotism, yet Keithy-boy seems to have no trouble declaring that President Bush isn't a true American.

    By the way, am I the only one who thought K-boy was about to jump onto his desk and start making animal sounds?

    I can't believe he called Chris Wallace a "monkey." He will not score points with actual journalists, such as Chris. He may not have liked that Chris got more attention and high ratings (with help from you, Olby), but calling him a monkey was uncalled for and classless, even for la Naranja.

    Murrow, when delivering whatever commentary he had, didn't tremble like he was about ready to cry. Watching Olbermann tonight had me laughing, because I thought he was going to break down.

    Keith is coming apart at the seams. Not much longer now before he's taking time off for mental health reasons.

    All the olbermann fans still would say that you cannot tell if olb leans left or right. I challenge any olby fan to say olbermann is far left and speaks for the left.

    Afterwards, he slid under his desk and into the fetal position. "WAAA-WAAA-WAAA, America is ignoring me, MY Clinton lovefest got no ink!"

    Sorry but he's no Murrow. Murrow was sane. Keith isn't making my head explode but I will say, it's great fun watching him come apart mentally with each and every passing day. I'm eagerly awaiting for the day he'll blow out his brains (not that he's got a lot) on air.

    JohnB, I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought K-boy looked like he's on the verge of a one-way ticket to the Happy Hospital.

    I am going to be real intereted to see what orangemann's reaction is going to be when conservative Republicans pick up MORE seats in congress this November. I bet his head will actually explode on national TV.
    calling olbermann a journalist is like calling a leaky rowboat and ocean liner.

    Boy, the Clinton sense of entitlement continues. They LOVE the softball interview. When, for example has Hillary ever done a REAL interview? She has only shown up on Fox News for example with Alan Colmes as the sole interviewer.

    Bill looked like a raging loon because he thought Chris Wallace got the memo about the softball interview. Chris Wallace is tough on everybody. Always has been. He is what Russert is with Republicans - but Wallace is that way with both sides. Tough and fair.

    Chris Wallace has given Don Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, and every other Bush Administration figure tough but fair questions. I actually thought Wallace's question to Clinton was not nearly tough enough.

    Oh you are not alone. I'd say he's off his meds.

    America has woken up.

    In the latest polls Bill Clinton's approval rating is 20 points higher than Chimpy Bush-Laden's !

    It will be 30 points after more people see Big Dog's slapdown of Chrissy Wallace and learn how the Chimp's War for Profit in Iraqaburton has made us LESS safe.

    Die Traitorous Neocon Scum!

    Actually, if you recall Wallace WAS Russert at one point - he used to be on Meet the Press when he was at NBC.

    KO = Moron -- You're a trained monkey right? Here to entertain? Have a peanut and go away. Who gives a fuck what Clinton's PR rating is? He looked like a fucking fool and Wallace GOT HIM.

    I look forward to the day when K-boy does his program on location at his local mental health facility. He can have a "special comment" concerning the dangerously right-wing leanings of his evening jello dessert.

    "Have you no shame, Mr. Gelatin ..."

    hello morons -- and how are the storm troopers tonight?

    kudos to keith for another fabulous Edward R moment. despite what you neanderthals think, Keith has hit the motherload with that segment. and it'll be fun to watch him skewer the monkeyboy and his criminal cronnies for as long as it lasts. speaking of which ...

    talk about rewriting history ... a la all the Goebbels-wannabes in the WH and at FAUX and here at OW ... get this ... Monday Night Football is in New Orleans tonight, and the only problem with that is that all the dumb-as-rocks republicans like you dimwits will now think the city's been rebuilt -- and will claim it as another mission accomplished -- like finding WMDs, and liberating Iraq, and stabilizing the middle east.

    have fun being a--holes, a--holes ...

    OH KEITH OBERMANN, FAR OUT, KEITH "FAR" OUT!!!!111 AND YOU THINK AMERICA IS "INTERESTED" IN YOU BASHING OUR COMMANDER IN CHIEF????? IN ****CHIEFF****???? I DON'T ****HTINK****** SO!!!!!111 I DON'T 8****THINK***** SO!!!!!!! YOU OR MICHEAL MOORE OR ANY OF YOUR "OTHER" LIBBY BUTT BUDDIES!!!!! PETHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another bravura commentary by Keith. No wonder his ratings are up 33% while O'Reilly is tanking.

    This is a great day for Democrats. Ford is picking up steam in the Senate race in Tennessee, the green party candidate is kicked off the ballot in Pennsylvania, 3 generals say 'no way' to Rummy in public no less, and Clinton knocks the stuffing out of Whiny CW. Oh, and there's that pesky NIE report.

    Go Keith!!!
    Man, are the Dems going to rock in November!

    Krazy Keith peaked the meter of cringe
    "Special Comment" on lunatic fringe
    Implosion is pending
    NBC should be ending
    Meltdown cuz the host's off his hinge

    How come Luffah Boy O'Liely is such a cowardly pussy and keeps running away from Keith?

    He even looked completely terrified of Bawbwa Walters on TV Friday night!

    Repukes = Cowards

    Check out the Chickenhawk Database for proof!

    Keith called it. Chris Wallace doesn't have the greatness of his father, so he settled for a talking head position at the propaganda network.

    He is a monkey. But the poop he slung got whipped back at him. And Keith rightly laughed at him.

    Bush and his personal public chorus are the cowards,and the REAL threat to this country.

    Chew on that contards.

    I love it. People like him are the reason moderates run like hell from the democrats.

    Have fun trying to win an election with 20% of the loons voting on your side.

    Wow. Liberals are douchebags. What a bunch of ignorant internet ogres.

    Too bad for Keith and his whack-job fan base that everyone else's ratings are up far more than his and he's still getting his sorry and crazy ass kicked in the ratings. And by girls at that. That must bite.

    Olbermann was right on tonite. Love him or hate him we have a right to question the mess we are in in Iraq. Fire Rumsfeld

    Dude, you gotta register people for this mess so you can get the children out of the adult pool. You can always tell when the Olbermann "fans" have gotten out of junior high detention for the day...

    Yes, go Keith. Go straight to the insane aslyum you belong in and take your crazy-ass fans with you.

    Are there any K-boy fans on this site with an education higher than sixth grade? The insults I've seen thus far are so lame, Henny Youngman wouldn't use them.

    "In an effort to curb malicious comment posting by abusive users, I've enabled a feature that requires a weblog commenter to wait a short amount of time before being able to post again."

    Yeah, well, it's not working real well. "O'Lielly" needs to have his diaper changed...

    What part of "tried" did any of you knuckle dragers not get?

    What part of "you asked the question" do you not get?

    What part of "handed down intelligence briefing" do you not get?

    Yikes! What a bunch of lemmings.

    Thank God for Keith. I want my country back. I want to be proud once again of my country. I don't want my country run by WAR CRIMINALS. People who belive that torture is OKAY. It's time that WE THE PEOPLE stand up and say enough is enough. These fools in the Bush Administration have done such incredible damage it is hard to know where to and how to repair. Not one of you right=wingers can point to one positive outcome of the Bush Administration. Osama is still on the run. Education is more exprensive and harder to get for middle class. Prescription drugs for the elderly is a joke. USA hated around the world. Middle class declining while CEO's now have incomes that boggle the mind. %400 mil is average income of Oil CEOS. They kiss the picture of Bush's ASS every night before bed. Ooops. That's Cheney's Ass. I wonder if Dick has a deal with the new CEO of Halliburton on splitting the WAR GOODS. Cheney's profits on IRAQ taxpayer money going into his pocket pale by comparison. We've now been freeing the Iraqis for democracy longer than we fought in WWII. And by the way Germany and Japan had been democracies before WWII. I want to know why you hate the Middle Class, and your country? Why would you want these incompetent people to continue to run or ruin our country? Just curious.

    AWOLBUSH

    Ya, maybe he should go work with dad at the great memogate network.

    Or MSNBC who has the worst rarings on tv.

    Worked late tonight, and was on the cross trainer watching the Yankees at my health club. I noticed that the 2 people to my right were watching Olbermann and the special comment came on. I switched over out of curiosity.

    At one point, I started to laugh at Keith for...well, where do I start. The two to my right (a married couple, I presume) look over at me, and they start laughing.

    So, as Keith employs his tortured logic (pardon the pun), turns for the camera angles, and rants like a lunatic, the 3 of us are laughing hysterically at him.

    When it was finally over, the woman looks over to me and asks, "Who is that clown?" She, like 99.999% of the country has obviously never watched the show.

    I replied that it was news parody that MSNBC broadcasts for entertainment value. I'm not sure if she realized I was joking.

    That never happened. And everybody knows it.

    Monarch, I am not surprised. You weren't the only ones laughing at him.

    Keith Olbermann is a breath of fresh air. At last! Someone who speaks truth to power. He's a little late, though. Thousands of Americans have been saying these things for months, now. You'd have to be blind, deaf, and dumb not to notice the lies and subterfuges and underhanded hankypanky that has been coming out of Washington (never mind that a 12-year-old boy could have run a better war in Iraq).

    We should put the administration and congress all on the moon, and start over from scratch with honest, ordinary people who aren't either power-mad or bought by every lobbyist in the country.

    We need more Keith Olbermann's, but we needed them yesterday.

    I see no information countering anything that either Keith or Clinton actually said --- only name-calling, the only right-wing tactic left. It's what they use everytime they are caught lying -- what a vicious cycle. Lie/deflect, lie/deflect, lie/deflect, (see the pattern yet?)

    Why not just answer with facts ---- *if* you have them!

    K-boy speaks truth to power? From his kooky antics this evening, it's more likely the only power to which he's been speaking is the current flowing during his electrotherapy sessions.

    Increase the voltage.

    Say all the shit you want to say but the fact still remains that Clinton was correct! Bush did nothing to prevent 911 with plenty of warnings! 911 happened on Bush's watch and no one has been made accountable!

    > I mean Wallace's question was far lamer than Russet asked Cheney. I say Clinton went off as planned - so he could make Hill the shrill seem tough too.

    > Did the Opie one actually question Wallace's journalistic integrity

Supposed big time attorney -and his "protoge" son is letting a free reign to the biggest journalisiitc disgrace in a looong time - say jusy about anything.

    To The Monarch,
    Obviously jealous of the moron in office. That's not good on this site. You have to love Bush and his athletic attempts. Get off the damn tread mill. You too could attempt riding on a bike like Bush. And if you fall off -- Oh, what is that pretzel excuse -- lack of sugar. Or protein? And there is the tremedous sadness, this president who you revere so much is obviously not too smart. But he's a regular guy, who belives in torture. And if asked to serve in the military during the Vietnam War -- STATESIDE. And went AWOL, because he's so smart. And Rove is so smart. Everyone tells him that. Except his parents.
    Monarch, how come that woman on the next treadmil left you? And were you at the Y or at your country club? Either way she sounds like a blonde right winger trollop-- who does and agrees with everything you say. In YOUR DREAMS.


    Once again, Keith Olbermann has the guts to speak out against the lying theiving con men who are the Bush Administration. And to those making derogatory comments here - explain to me why Keith's ratings are climbing and his book is selling like hotcakes?

    Anyway - thank you Keith. This country is turning and you are helping to spread the truth. Much appreciated.

    Johnny, you're en fuego tonight. Another fantastic summary. Congrats and thank you.

    Keith is one of the few commentators worth watching. This website only makes me like him more

    Worst person in the World by KO: out of top 100

    Olbermann called Chris Wallace a monkey posing as a journalist. OMG. This is funny. I win my bet as Olbermann has completely lost it.

    Hey Bob, can our next poll be what kind of animal/insect KO is if Chris Wallace is a "monkey"? I vote for either cockroach or rat.

    Dear Jill (aka Mrs. Olbermann):

    The woman at the gym did not leave me. We laughed at the foolish Keith, and went our seperate ways. But I'm afraid I must disappoint you...I am married and unlike liberal hippie-chicks, that commitment means something to me.

    Oh wait...maybe I shouldn't presume you're a silly hippie chick. Hard not to do so, considering you assume much about me.

    Don't worry...just like when I listen to Keith, I consider the source and discarded your inane rhetoric.

    Anybody notice how Olbermann looked like a scared kid doing an interview for his high school newspaper while interviewing Clinton?

    This guy praises the media for every ridiculous action they take, unless they're asking a liberal a tough question. Wallace asks Clinton if looking back, would you have handled it differently? All of the sudden, in Olbyland, Chris Wallace is an emissary of the evil president and part of a vast right wing conspiracy to blame Bill Clinton for 9/11.

    How dare Wallace ask that question. It's unforgivable to ask a former president about the biggest terror attack in the history of the U.S. and the previous attacks by Al-qaeda that happened during the Clinton years.

    Watch the interview. CLINTON says he agreed to spend half the time talking about his global initiative. That was the only agreement and when Wallace tried to change the subject to that, Clinton continued his pathological lying defense.

    Olbermann calling anyone a propagandist is really, really funny. He would know best.

    Olbermann is just Michael Moore in suit. He is just like monica lewinsky with a kickstand. he is the worst person in the world and the craziest.

    Explain to me why Keith's ratings are climbing and his book is selling like hotcakes?
    *************************************
    Uh......their not...his show finnished mostly 4th and his book dropped out of the Amazon top 100 and is only 18th on the Times list.

    Love the way you refer to the former president as "BJ Clinton." Nice job helping to distract the ditto-tangs from more important issues -- like Bush's incompetence, like the GOP-controlled Congress's phony-ass attempt to impeach Clinton over a blowjob when he, unlike George W. Cheney's Meat Puppet Bush, was taking terrorism seriously.

    There's a special place in hell for people like you.

    Mr. Olbermann is just, well, nuts. He had indeed turned into Howard Beale.

    There is no other explanation for this type of over-the-top conspiratorial craziness.

    He believes that Bush is using the "monkey" (great, classy there KO) Chris Wallace to re-write history and assign sole blame for 9/11 to Clinton? And Bush is doing this by Wallace simply asking Clinton why he (Clinton) didn't do more to get Bin Laden? The same Wallace who asked Rice and Rumsfeld why they didn't do more to OBL as well?

    Some conspiracy. Wallace can't (or won't) even follow the script.

    That's just so silly and childish one can't respond to it. It's like arguing with someone who says that they're Napoleon.

    Wow.

    As a broadcast professional who once had to work with Chris, I can tell you for a fact tat Keith was going easy on Chris.

    who edited my post?
    you guys are being scamed, may post was altered!

    The main points are: Bush wasn't concerned with terrorism before 9/11, nor did he know anything about it. He ignored and demoted Richard Clarke. He was against have an independant 9/11 commission. He wouldn't testify before the 9/11 commission under oath or without Dick Cheney at his side. He attacked the wrong country after 9/11 and horribly botched the job, ignoring the good advice of those who knew something about Iraq. He didn't know that there were Sunni and Shia. Now I keep reading that Olbermann is insane. Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over (stay the course) and expecting the same result. Maybe if 1984 weren't so apt a description he wouldn't use it so much.

    Once again, Olbermann nails the authoritarian spend-like-a-drunken-sailor liberal George W. Bush and his press poodles.

    "Bush wasn't concerned with terrorism before 9/11, nor did he know anything about it. He ignored and demoted Richard Clarke. He was against have an independant 9/11 commission.

    There's another term for all of those actions and inactions: impeachable offenses. Bush is the most liberal and corrupt president this nation has seen in a century, maybe more.

    What is wrong with you KO haters? Oy vey! He kicked Wallace's ass, and Wallace seemed to enjoy it! S&M!

    Dehydrated water mentioned Keith's "kooky antics." Not quite as kooky as, say, Bush Jr. feeling up Angela Merkel, or not-so-deftly butchering the English language with statements like, "Is our children learning?"

    Now that's kooky -- kookier even than shady New Rochelloid Bob Cox...

    OMG. I only noticed someone else's post about KO's comments. I actually just watched his rant. It is way worse than anyone explained. He has gone cuckoo. I'm surprised MSNBC didn't pull him off the air.

    Olbermann called Chris wallace a monkey. Islamo-Fascists call Jews Monkeys! That proves Olby is aligned with the Jihadis!

    Something tells me that Olby would love to use his presidential knee pads on Mr. Clinton. Can nothing crush Olby's boy crush for Clinton? Sheesh---the orange man becomes more creepy by the day.

    On CSpan March,2006

    Is this the same Keith Olbermann Brian Lamb interviewed on CSPAN

    Now you have told somebody you have signed 14 contracts in your 27 years of professionalism.

    OLBERMANN: Yes, CNN, one, two, you know, I think that?s right -- that might even be low. That might have been before the last one or two, but yes, that?s about right.

    Olbermann "you go after power, you don?t go after a Republican or a Democrat."

    Olbermann "The thing that is admirable about FOX News and the thing that is ultimately what keeps them successful is that it is always a good television program"

    Olbermann "But my advice, actually, to a viewer is to listen, because what we?re about, ultimately, is the content. I?m asking questions, as you do, I think, to get information. I don?t ? I?m not trying to elicit a political opinion or a stance."

    Oh my God

    The monkey comment was way over the line. But on the plus side, I guess Keith won't mind when Fox fires back and calls him bat-shit crazy.

    Is there a video of this rant against Chris Wallace? I went to youtube and it does not seem to be there. Any other ideas?

    "I went to youtube and it does not seem to be there. Any other ideas"

    Newsbusters has the entire, er, thing.

    http://newsbusters.org/

    Y'know, for all of his faults, at least O'Reilly calls people names to their faces. He has the people on and then attacks them. They can fight back.

    Olbermann for some reason is unwilling to have opposing views on. Why not have Wallace on to defend himself? Or a dozen and one other people that Olbermann has smeared. Let them defend their actions.

    Common decency calls for it. But KO has abandoned common decency in his quest for something. Ratings? I guess.

    SMG

    Robert,

    You need to send a letter to Abrams at MSNBC.


    KO is an anti-Semite. This might be your Macaca moment Keith.

    Chris Wallace (b. October 12, 1947) is a Jewish American journalist currently working for Fox News. He is the host of Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace. Wallace has been with Fox News since 2003.

    http://factsofisrael.com/blog/archives/000556.html


    Palestinian television used the occasion of the Muslim month of Ramadan to broadcast programming with a distinctly anti-Jewish theme, including a sermon in which Jews were called "cursed … the brothers of monkeys and pigs," reports Palestinian Media Watch.
    The sermon, delivered last Friday by Dr. Mustafa Najem, argued that attacking Jews is part of the destiny of Muslims and Arabs. [...]
    "Praise be to Allah, who has cursed [the Jews], the brothers of monkeys and pigs, with a stream of curses that will continue until the Resurrection of the dead," Najem declared. "He has warned us against their evil and their arrogance, and has said: 'You will find that the most brazen among mankind, with hatred toward the believers, are the Jews and the idolaters.' [Koran, 81,5].

    In one recent video, a Palestinian about to blow himself up among Jewish civilians is depicted reciting a prayer hoping for "paradise."


    "Angels of mercy, escort our souls to Heaven after we fulfill this duty of crushing the descendents of monkeys and pigs. Dear father and mother, blessings of honor and respect to you, while you escort me to the Maidens of Paradise as a Martyr," states the soon-to-be suicide bomber.

    What the Sheik Really Said About Jews, Monkeys and Swine
    Ben Birnbaum

    Late last year, the New York Times reported the following:

    “A statement on a Web site by a Muslim cleric from Vancouver calling Jews “the brothers of monkeys and swine” was perceived as particularly disturbing [by Canadian authorities]. The cleric, Sheik Younus Kathrada, of the Daral-Madinah Islamic Society, posted a clarification on his website this week, saying that his comments had been taken out of context.”


    Oh I'm sure the entire video with accompanying text will be up at the Countdown site at MSNBC.com if it isn't already.

    Sorry, I didn't think to go to the MSNBC website for the video because I didn't think it was that big of a deal. But for MSNBC, apparently it is, because there it was!

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I stopped it at 1:15 (out of 10:00 minutes). What a MORON!!!!! He amplifies Clinton's comments by accusing the Bush administration of not even trying to get bin Laden. What a slam to all of our military personnel who were killed, maimed or just deployed to Afghanistan. They certainly were trying to get him. It's unfortunate that he has not yet been found, but at least alQaeda has been deterred from attacking our country again so far.

    Again, by slamming Bush, he is just trashing our military and their families, who sacrifice when their loved ones are away (or gone permanently, in some cases). What a piece of crap he is!

    And calling Chris Wallace a monkey? That was horrible. As was said on Fox and Friends this morning, Clinton acted as if he were going after Sean Hannity. Instead, he went after the most non-partisan interview in the world. How pathetic.

    hello morons -- and how are the storm troopers tonight?

    kudos to keith for another fabulous Edward R moment. despite what you neanderthals think, Keith has hit the motherload with that segment. and it'll be fun to watch him skewer the monkeyboy and his criminal cronnies for as long as it lasts. speaking of which ...

    talk about rewriting history ... a la all the Goebbels-wannabes in the WH and at FAUX and here at OW ... get this ... Monday Night Football is in New Orleans tonight, and the only problem with that is that all the dumb-as-rocks republicans like you dimwits will now think the city's been rebuilt -- and will claim it as another mission accomplished -- like finding WMDs, and liberating Iraq, and stabilizing the middle east.

    have fun being a--holes, a--holes ...

    Stormtroopers,Nazis, and Goebbels oh my... Live 60+ years in the past much? Geez why didn't you just call posters here Colonel Klink or General Bulcarter?! The relevance between fictional characters, real nazis, and people posting on a message board is the same as non-existent.maybe you should call them all Huns although no one here is posting in german..

    Your irrelevant name calling is as humorous as your putting words in peoples mouths (like your buddy Earl Camembert..errr I mean Keith) about New Orleans. As for Iraq, who is in control? The scumbags? Nope Guess again..I commend that you are "standing by your man" Mr. Musto but your malevolent attitude isn't helping MSNBC's ratings..

    To the KO lovers: I like everyone here and enjoy this site. It is fun disagreeing. I have nothing against you guys other than a difference of opinion. Kind of like Charger and Raider fans arguing. I can tell everyone here is passionate about thier opinions. Let's all stay friends, but any of the KO lovers here agree that KO has gone bonkers? I need a certain number of you to win my bet with my friend.

    SMG, how true! Keith attacks people in his commentary, yet will not invite them on to confront them in person or let them explain their side of the story. And as you say, O'Reilly does this, and does so constantly!

    When O'Reilly was on commercial break, I flipped over to the trainwreck and heard Keith award O'Reilly WPITW because O'Reilly supposed "ran away from" Keith at a Yankees game. Oh, really (no pun intended). How are we supposed to believe that Keith would actually face O'Reilly in person when he NEVER allows a subject of his attacks to present their side on his program?

    Sorry, Keith, we know better.

    When Jonathon Alter - the literary Newsweek genius of the likes of Eleanor Clift and Helen Thomas - says Clinton went off, CLinton must have gone off. Alter I heard was rehearsing the lines in the "green" room because he had to knock a Dem - and it's been so long

    Alter won't be back anytime soon since he too didn't call Wallace a monkey.

    And Floyd Abram's son quickly puts another materpiece on the MSNBC website. Sirens just went off Dan - want me to chase the ambulance this time and get their pictures - you do have your nighlty meeting with Howard Dean, Pelosi, Reid, Kennedy & the DNC. . What do the trial lawyers get these days - 40 %

    And for the KO non-lovers...no posing as a KO lover to help me with my bet. If I can get O'lielly to agree with me, that KO has gone over the deepend, I actually win my bet. The actual number I need is 10, but O'lielly spends so much time here, he counts as 10.

    G Monster, more than likely, NONE of the olbylovers will agree that he has gone bonkers. They are every bit as "gone" as he is, and wouldn't know it if you sledgehammered that fact over their damned heads.

    1 more thing. Did I just see KO taunt Bill O'Reilly about a baseball game they both attended. He says O'Reilly ran away from him. What benefit would O'Reilly gain by confronting him? KO is very immature. How old is he? Anyone know?

    "Again, by slamming Bush, he is just trashing our military and their families, who sacrifice when their loved ones are away (or gone permanently, in some cases). What a piece of crap he is!" Missy


    You are a loon. You aren't trashing the military if you slam Bush. He deserves getting slammed for putting our sons and daughters into harms way with outdated armor, a horrible "on the cheap" invasion plan , an even worse plan for post war(has there ever been a plan?), and not letting our military fully go after the leader of the group responsible for atacking us. Our military has performed great under these circumstances and I applaud them. I can't say the same for the leaders that put them there.

    To me, as a descendant of Polish Jews, I find the irony of the following amusing:

    George Allen is raked over the coals by Olby for using a word at an Indian man that translates to "monkey". Allen's Jewish ancestry, and his response to a bullsmurf question, becomes an issue to the left. Chris Wallace's ancestors are Russian Jews. Keith calls him a "monkey", and the left cheers. WTF?

    Also, remember that Dan Abrams' policy at MSNBC is to "punch up" in the hopes that by attacking those conservatives better than you (OReilly, Limbaugh, Coulter, Fox News, Malkin, Brent Bozell, etc), they will in turn respond. That response will then be used by KO and others at MSNBC in their PR Campaign. I get the feeling that since KO's other attempts at getting a response from FNC people or Limbaugh or Coulter, he keeps trying to be more insulting and nasty. He believes that they will eventually have to respond.

    12:08, we keep hearing that the IRAQ war is being understaffed, but no such thing was ever stated about Afghanistan.

    G Monster, I heard him say that when he named O'Reilly WPITW.

    Again, how is it that Keith is brave enough to confront O'Reilly at a baseball game yet he cannot even confront anyone with a dissenting point of view on his program?

    Hi eddiebear,

    Nice to see you over here. I always enjoy (and agree) with your posts at ICN!

    yes there have been plenty of knocks on the "understaffing" of Afghanistan. We went in there with 16,000 troops. We have 20,000 over there now. That country is gradually getting worse and worse. Opium production is at higher levels then before 2001! There has often been complaints that we held off a full invasion in Afghanistan in order to save the money, firepower, and troops for the Iraq invasion even though Iraq was not on the table publicy at the time we invaded Afghanistan. We had not even secured Afghanistan yet and we were invading another country.

    Somebody just has to read back the "monkey posing as a journalist" comment from Keith to Mike Wallace to get his reaction. Even if Mike is poltically more sympatico with Olbermann than with his own son, the response ought to be at least worth 3-4 days worth of media catfighting fun.

    Awww....truth hurts, you faux-christian bushbots. Now, be good little fuckwits and get back to your circlejerk. Clinton took enough shit from you freeptards over the years, and when he fights back...listen to you pussies cry. lmfao

    Chris Wallace is far from conservative.

    If you follow the link in my post, you will see that Chris Wallace came to the defense of Bill Clinton re the 9/11 movie, the same movie that Olby railed about in tonight's diatribe. Yes, the propagandist, the "monkey", spoke out against the falsehoods in the movie, but Keith didn't care. He was too busy calling the Jewish reporter a "monkey".

    Below are the comments of our political oposition. I used to be concerned about the November elections, now I am starting to think that it is not going even be close.

    Can't think of another person in all of American media that has more ability to speak the truth than Keith Olbermann. Fox News is the raising as in "The South will rise again" slogan from all the old KKK white southern protestants that cloak themselves with the bible while carrying on the torch of bigotry and ignorance. This so-called blog is the epitome of such ignorance. Well this November the South will fall again - right on it's face. Good riddance!

    "I used to be concerned about the November elections, now I am starting to think that it is not going even be close."

    You're right. Not even close. We'll take both houses of Congress and have the torture-monger impeached and convicted before Easter.

    Dear Mr. Patrick Clancy:

    Is this the bigotry of which you speak?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Byrd

    On March 4, 2001, an interview with Tony Snow was aired on FOX News Sunday. In the interview, Byrd was asked about race relations:

    "They are much, much better than they've ever been in my lifetime," Byrd said. "I think we talk about race too much. I think those problems are largely behind us ... I just think we talk so much about it that we help to create somewhat of an illusion. I think we try to have good will. My old mom told me, 'Robert, you can't go to heaven if you hate anybody.' We practice that. There are white niggers. I've seen a lot of white niggers in my time. I'm going to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I'd just as soon quit talking about it so much."[13]

    "I used to be concerned about the November elections, now I am starting to think that it is not going even be close."

    You're right. Not even close. We'll take both houses of Congress and have the torture-monger impeached and convicted before Easter.

    Jimmy Carter and many others from the south were and still are good Christians but the vast majority of the unrepentant Confederate flag waving bigots are the "base" of the Bush republicans. A morally corrupt bunch that leave a slime trail like all slugs do. Carl Rove and Tom Delay are perfect examples of the slime balls that conservatives covet. If there is a god in heaven he will condemn all these sleazy greasy criminals to an eternity of working for a living instead being the parasitic scum bags that crap on the constitution our for fathers fought and died for. How anyone can support this bunch speaks directly to the same process that got hundreds of thousands of poor white southern men to fight a civil war for a handful of rich plantation owners. Today's working class "Christian" voters are under the same con that they would vote for these men that raise their cost of living while giving tax breaks to the richest of men - Camels through the eye of needle!

    MSLSD should be proud -- they are the first news organization to allow a paranoid, delusional schizophrenic to play newsman. Something tells me the staff at Meltdown are plotting to drop thorazine in Keith's coffee before they all lose their jobs.

    God also hate the unproductive slug like you Clancy.

    Matthew 25:14-28:
    "Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money.
    "After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. `Master,' he said, `you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more.'
    "His master replied, `Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
    "The man with the two talents also came. `Master,' he said, `you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more.'
    "His master replied, `Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!'
    "Then the man who had received the one talent came. `Master,' he said, `I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.'
    "His master replied, `You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.
    "`Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents. For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'

    Clancy,

    Did You just fall out of the Crazytree like the guy calling people nazis? What does your manic "Southern Conspiracy" theory have to do with Olbermanns show tonight or any other night?! I suppose your going to tell us next that this conspiracy is led by the nefarious Colonel Sanders from his secret bunker...Wow, get help..

    Clinton definitely told the truth about Bush's inaction before 9/11, as Olbermann said, but he wasn't the first. I wrote a book about Bush's failure on 9/11 and all of the days he didn't do a thing before the four attacks.

    Who are the cultural decedents of the Klu Klux Klan?

    They are spread from Maine to southern California and from Miami to Seattle. You can find them everywhere, they are called Protestants. They are the culturally retarded we've all had to put up with through 100 years of segregation and the assassinations of JFK and MLK. When they lost the battle of segregation they regrouped under the Reagan era converting from "southern Democrats" to Republicans. Feeling empowered they let it be known they were willing to tolerate any kind of corruption just as long as they could win for once. Fox News is their new mouth piece. How refreshing for them that obese hillbilly TV evangelists are no longer their only spokesman. Now they have an idiot ,the biggest idiot ever in US history as their leader, George Bush. Embarrassed and humiliated they dig in and live in the same denial they used through 400 years and 100 years of segregation. How do humans treat their fellow man this way with out some long term social retardation?

    Always quick to cloak themselves in things like abortion and homosexuality as a cover for their true immoral cultural foundation. The stench of a culture that never repents from ignorance and corruption. Like idiots who can't get a job beyond gas station attendant they never learn from their mistakes simply because so many hundreds of years of the evils of slavery forced them to develop a complex culture of denial. It's always the same mantra - "were the holy ones pure and Christian not the ones whose fore fathers fought and died to preserve the right hold our fellow man as slaves. Not the ones who perpetrated segregation for generations."

    Give me a break. This blog is the epitome of such folly!

    What's brown and lays in the grass?

    Missy said,
    stopped it at 1:15 (out of 10:00 minutes). What a MORON!!!!! He amplifies Clinton's comments by accusing the Bush administration of not even trying to get bin Laden. What a slam to all of our military personnel who were killed, maimed or just deployed to Afghanistan. They certainly were trying to get him. It's unfortunate that he has not yet been found, but at least alQaeda has been deterred from attacking our country again so far.
    What a MORON you ask? No one was sent to "get him" until after 911!! Clinton tried to get him before that. If, and I hope they don't attack us again will you see who the real MORONS are?

    Where is a copy of the video of his "special comment"? I need to send it to all my friends in the vast right wind conspiracy. Seriously, is it hosted anywhere?

    *wing

    Who is this Brian Ross you speak of? I never hear about him except at this site.

    Short and simple.

    After getting elected, Bush went on vacation for 42 days, failed to respond to the USS Cole being attacked, demoted the terror czar, failed to respond to the PDB, and froze for 7 minutes after being told "the nation is under attack". At no point has he admitted he could have done more.

    The current meme' by rightwingers such as yourselves is that 9-11 was Clinton's fault. It's the only thing you have to distract people from the failings of this administration. These failings include Bin Laden still being free, Afghanistan sliding back into the hands of the Taliban and a political disaster in Iraq.

    Stop throwing up smoke screens and hold your president and his backers accountable.

    The country really can't take much more of this.

    Ah, it's up on crooksandliars.com. Now I can spread the message to other members of the underground fascist conspiracy.

    No Edward,

    It's evidently the Protestant KKK conspiracy spearheaded by Republicans, Televangelests and Gas station attendants.No wonder gas prices are low, those devious gas station people are trying to lull us into a false sense of security..:-D

    Well, everyone knows that Bush and the other illuminati members in the government lowered gas prices to win the election. OBVIOUSLY

    What was it about Bill Clinton that irked so many white southern protestants - so many cultural descendants of the Klu Klux Klan? I'll tell you why they had so much venom for him, he was a southern boy that got uppity, he got educated and failed to remain with in the culture of the klan. And what was even worse his wife was smarter than most of the Britney Spears types like Daisy on Dukes of Hazards. Nothing worse than an intelligent woman lawyer that won't go along with the corrupt southern system of governing. So when the southern political machine was turned on Clinton by the up and coming neo-cons it was a snap. These dumb suckers (no pun intended) would fall in on the idea of Bill Clinton being a bad president for getting a blow job in the white house. "OH HE LIED ABOUT IT!"

    Anything that can be used to contrast a culture of corruption with the evils of sex and lying about sex is game for them. It might help make them all look just a little better than dumb hillbilly children of the Klan. And just as the plantation owners sent poor peasant white farmers off to line and be shot down dead by the hundreds of thousands so they could keep their wages low with slave labor the neo-cons line up the descendants of the same idiots.

    Easy targets that always loose the war. War war war. Who fills our military academy? White southern protestants that's who. Why? Because god dam it, come hell or high water they are going to recover the damage done from the burning of the south and the loss of the civil war. Never mind examining the fact the slavery was wrong and trying to divide this nation over slavery was worse and offense. Then they unrepentantly went on to enforce 100 more years of lynching and segregation often worse than the 400 years of slavery before it. Never repent, never surrender, never admit your wrong!

    I don't know if you are affiliated with MSNBC, (I found your website through Google) but can you please pass on to Mr Olbermann how proud I felt when he did his commentary tonight.

    Politics really doesn't interest me but I guess seeing President Clinton on Sunday standing up to that bully Chris Wallace (is he related to Mike Wallace?) and followed up with Keith's commentary tonight has clarified - at least for me - the full gravity of the nations peril.

    All three branches of the government are now run by a bunch of liars, crooks and cowards.... And Bill & Keith are the Paul Revires'. I'm amazed it took me so long to see this.

    Anyway, keep up the good work... It's important that Keith's voice is heard. He is the Edward Murrow of the 21st century....


    Hit Escape
    "After getting elected, Bush went on vacation for 42 days,failed to respond to the USS Cole being attacked"
    ************************************************
    The Cole was attacked on October 12, 2000....Clinton was still President.

    The fact is this. OBL is still alive and living in a cave and 9/11 occurred on BUSH'S watch. Any questions?

    No wonder some delusional, brainwashed, individuals come here for consoling of a broken mind. I guess the TRUTH hurts.

    Is Phil's post for real?

    I don't watch Olbermann regularly, but I liked what a saw. Forget the whole Wallace/Clinton interview... Bush is an embarrassment! And I'm a Republican from Texas. Where do I begin?! Are you people crazy? The spoiled frat boy who tanked every company he ever ran is now driving the country into the crapper - spending like a maniac, sending our troops to the wrong war, and employing spying and torture tactics that make us look like the Soviet Union.

    I predict that Mike Wallace will come out in defense of his son, whom with he doesn't agree politically, and denounce Olbermann as the awful fool he is. A jagoff already known for using the Nazi salute is now calling a Jew a 'monkey'. Not only is Opie no Edward R. Murrow, but he is no Chris Wallace, and never will be.

    He is the Edward Murrow of the 21st century.
    *********************************************
    Its funny I never knew Murrow was a coward who was afraid to have open debates with people who had different views than his.

    Fox News...

    I'm an independent. Thinker. Religously, and Politically. But I find Fox News to be more independent than any other news channel out there. I know they slant to the right a little, but at least they are willing to hear both sides of any issue.

    Concerning Olbermann's bashing of all things conservative....

    If it's the conservative media's "fault" that Olbermann's a fourth place seat warmer, then what was his excuse during his other failed shows?

    When Clinton was bonking Lewinsky, Olbermann said some garbage about his moral compass and upset stomach being the cause of breaking his first MSNBC contract.

    What other excuses has he used to get out of work?

    From what he's said about his ESPN departure, you'd think that they had nearly begged him to stay, yet it's been said that he didn't burn his bridges there, he napalmed them.

    It's amazing that he's always acted like the innocent party when leaving jobs. I'm guessing that if/when he's canned we'll hear sob stories about how he was singled out, how he did nothing wrong, how it's the conservatives fault, that his "special" comments were misunderstood...blah, blah, blah.

    Borrowing from Johnny's post about Olbermann's bleating, er, comment, it definitely seems that with the change of a couple words Olbermann is talking about himself.

    *Olbermann* has been given the greatest pass for incompetence and malfeasance in American history....

    And this one needs no change to reflect the thrust of Countdown:

    To hear him bleat and whine and bully at every opportunity...

    You don't need to watch Olbermann regularly to know that real Republicans hate big government and government spending like there's no tomorrow. What I want to know is what mechanism causes so many red blooded gun loving true Americans to sit by quietly while Rove and Cheney play puppet master to the clown in the white house.

    I worked for years with NRA types that railed against Clinton with great zeal and now they seem to be silent about this administration of corruption who have bankrupted our nation and created the big brother machine called Fox News. Where are the Ruby Ridge defenders when we need them?

    If you're looking for someone who disagrees with the government's actions at Ruby Ridge, I am right here.

    Keith Olbermann gets canned from jobs because he doesn't suck up to management like that pipsqueak Chris Wallace on Fox. Fox News is the closest thing to big brother out side communist nations. Olbermann has balls. Wallace is a pussy.

    Good Grief what the hell was up with Keith Olberman tonight? Take a freaggin' chill pill.

    I used to like Countdown when it first came on 3 years ago, I used to think it was funny and whitty, but now all he's been doing is being MISTER SPEW Miester. He used to be funny and fun now he's just a JERK!!!

    I just saw Keith's SPECIAL COMMENT today, KEITH...WILL YA QUIT MISQUOTING BUSH...George W NEVER OFFICIALLY ACCUSSED CLINTON OF 9/11, BUSH NEVER OFFICIAL SAID IT'S ALL CLINTON'S FAULT...ARE YOU STONE DEAF!? By the way Olberman Bush also NEVER OFFICIALLY SAID in his Speech on the USS Abe Lincoln "Mission Accomplished" now was that a mistake to have that banner behind him? "YES" but he never officially said, "Mission Accomplished" I'm sick of you saying it's "DAY 1,500 since Bush said Mission Accomplished" He never said that but we get the message he shouldn't have had that behind him by the way that banner was for the USS Lincoln because the ship was retiring.

    Keith if you want to bash the conservative talk radio show hosts who HAVE BLAMED CLINTON for 9/11 and being distracted go right ahead, but even CLINTON defended Bush in 2003 for Iraq and haven't you noticed that the Bush's have been friendly to the Clinton's lately? See BUSH 41 hanging out with Bill 42 with the Tsunami effort.

    Chris Wallace a conservative? NEWS FLASH NOT EVERYBODY ON FRIGGIN FOX NEWS IS A CONVERVATIVE!!! Brit Hume, Alan Colmes, Greta Van Sustrein, are hardly conservatives. Also Rupert Murdock DONATED MONEY TO HILLARY!!! Chris Wallaces' dad Mike Wallace who LOVED AND SUCKED UP TO the President of Iran saying, "We had almost a good time together and that he was intelligant" MR. "I want to wipe Israel off the map, kill all Jews" Chris Wallaces' Dad says he had "A good time" with him?

    Listen, I also was against the impeachment trial of Clinton I used to LOVE CLINTON...until the USS COLE BOMBING...that's when I LOATHED CLINTON!!! The conservatives are right, Clinton sat on his ASS while Bin Laden blew up our embassey's and our military ships. I was undecided in 2000 but I made the decision to vote for Bush in 2000 when the USS Cole happened.

    Does Bush deserve 8 months of blame for 9/11? YES...BUT BILLY BOY BUBBA CLINTON HAD 8 FREGGIN YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By the way Clinton took LONG VACATIONS TO Martha's Vineyard too but every single time Bush even stops by Crawford the media goes NUTS! Don't get me wrong I get upset when Bush takes month long vacations too, but Clinton did the same thing and the media said nothing.

    Has Bush made severe mistakes in the War on Terror, OH HELL YES...1: He should have declared WAR on Afghanistan officially. 2: He should have dropped a low grade NUCLEAR BOMB on Tora Bora instead of regular bombs which didn't pierce the mountain. If the blast didn't kill Bin Laden the radiation would have. 3: He should have stopped the looting in Iraq and secured Fallujah much sooner. 4: He should have given the military permission to carpet bombed Fallujah when contractors were beheaded and killed. 5: He should have had more troops in and sent more back to rest after a few months instead of a few years. 6: He should have tried harder to find WMD more about that later.

    To Olberman who says Bush LIED about WMD...question. If Bush made the whole thing up don't you think somebody in this grand conspiracy theory would have remembered to plant some WMD somewhere? Also...OH OLBERMAN...

    WE DID FIND SOME WMD IN IRAQ THAT YOUR FRIENDS IN THE MEDIA ARE NOT REPORTING TO US!!!

    1: We found 1500 Gallons of Chemical Weapons in a compound in Mosul last August 8th 2005.

    Don't believe me...CHECK HERE: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/08/13/AR2005081300530.html

    And the Washington Post put that story on PAGE 18!!! Don't think they're hiding something?

    2: Sarin Gas and CYCLONE SARIN GAS found in Northeastern Iraq: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/3861197.stm

    3: 1.77 Metric TONS OF RADIOACTIVE MATERIAL FOUND IN Tuwaitha IRAQ...enough to make dirty bombs. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/3872201.stm

    Oh and Keith NONE OF THOSE LINKS ARE FROM FOX NEWS...they're from the BBC and Washington Post because I knew you wouldn't believe me if I said they were from Fox.

    Don't get me wrong I was really MAD at Fox News Last year with that STUPID ARUBA STORY...missing hot blonde chick from Aruba...CONSTANTLY...GOSH!!!

    Keith you have let your HATRED OF GEORGE W BUSH GET THE BEST OF YOU...EVEN I...TODAY...DON'T HATE BILL CLINTON...I feel really sorry for the guy. I'm sure he would have loved to kill Bin Laden but he held himself back for Political reasons. In 1998 we CANCELLED A CIA assassin team from killing Bin Laden because we were worried about collateral damage and because Bin Laden was too close to CHILDREN...

    About "The Path to 9/11" ...Keith I don't remember you complaining about Fahrienheit 9/11 which was in theatres. So Michael Moore makes a in your words, "Slimy bashing film" against Bush...but "Path to 9/11" criticizes the Clinton Adm...oh yes..."HOW DARE THEY HAVE THEIR SAY OR INTERPRETATION OF WHAT HAPPENED..." We can ONLY SEE "HATE BUSH FILMS" BUT NOT "Maybe Clinton messed up films" I remember when Democrats had OFFICIAL MEETINGS at movie theatres showing "FH 9/11" and the liberals all kept saying "Everybody should be FORCED TO SEE THIS MOVIE" But ABC which is hardly conservative makes a movie and it's "TAKE IT OFF THE AIR HOW DARE YOU!!!" OH K.O...."NOW WHO'S THE FASCIST!?"

    I am sick and tired of you making Bill O Reilly and other conservates the "WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD" Have you ever made "BIN LADEN, OR ZARQAWI, OR ZARWAHIRI, OR ANY MUSLIM SAYING BEHEAD THE POPE!?!?" NOOOO...Bill O Reilly's worse because he avoids you..."Who can blame him at this point in time?" O'Reilly WORSE THAN BIN LADEN!? Don't get me wrong I don't watch his show much anymore...BUT COME ON!!!

    In conclusion THANK YOU FOR THIS WEBSITE Olberman Watch...I just came in today keep up the good work!

    Well Patrick, you have quite an impressive lexicon there. It bothers you that Wallace asked a question that Clinton agreed was fair? Chris Wallace has never demonstrated any bias whatsoever and you'd be hard pressed to find any journalist outside of the far left that feels he has.

    Good Grief what the hell was up with Keith Olberman tonight? Take a freaggin' chill pill.

    Wallace works for Fox News, what more needs to be said about his journalistic slant?

    And to the LONG WINDED writer Aaron Banks, who reads that much and gets time to play this game effectively? No one!

    Bush and Clinton and Wallace for that matter need not point fingers and say "It's your fault"

    Richard Clark did a fine job of that. I'm sure you read his book on the matter. Right?

    Aaron your entire rant is verbatim from Limbaugh and Hannity. Get real. Bush made it clear from the first day on his job that he was going after Iraq. The idea that you think you can say Iraq is a good investment of nearly 3000 dead GI's and more than ten times that severally injured not to mention $300 billion dollars of our tax dollars thrown down that rat hole, with your Limbaugh garble is truly a joke. Get real. Read a book besides the bible! Then you might look like something other than guy that knows how to find Limbaugh on an AM radio station!

    I'm off to bed.

    Cons are such bad liars! And they're so stupid they lie to each other and believe it, like the BS above! we libs who are smart enough to know the earth isn't 6000 years old, and that Saddam posed no threat to the US, are just too smart for the Repuke Koolaid!

    LMFAO! "...this administration of corruption who have bankrupted our nation and created the big brother machine called Fox News. Where are the Ruby Ridge defenders when we need them?"

    Tells you all you need to know about the poster. Fox is 10 years old. Hmm, that would mean they started in 1996. Who was president in '96? So how exactly did Bush "create the big brother machine"?

    Is the obligatory Orwell reference in chapter 1 of "Being a Liberal for Dummies"? Jesus, would one of you have an original thought? And, yeah, domestic militias and terrorist groups are exactly what this country needs. Dammit, somebody resurrect David Koresh and Tim McVeigh while your at it.

    All the post was missing was the promise to impeach Bush as soon as the newly Dem controlled Congress takes over in January. So, Anon at 2:16 am, i'll have to give you a B- for your post. You only got 2 of the 3 major Dem talking points in (Fox and Orwell), but bonus points for calling for domestic terror groups.

    On to the lastest televised edititon of KO's psychological collapse: Bill "Orally" (this is just so witty I can't help but use it...god the sophomoric lengths this man will go to in pandering to his few remaining viewers) says he wouldn't spend time with Olby, Franken or Rich. And then proves it by staying away from Olby at a ball game. Even the completly deranged and obsessed KO has to know that BO has no reason engage KO anywhere, much less provide a photo-op for Olby. A better question is why it takes KO 9 days to bring it up. Why not last Monday, right before another highly-touted, critically acclaimed "Special Comment"?

    The total absence of rational thought on the part of BDS suffering lefties boggles the mind.

    Bush's mistakes were caused by his arrogance and refusal to listen to the facts. Clinton knew the facts and tried to do the right thing. Regan deserves 10 times the scorn heaped upon Clinton for putting troops in Lebanon and withdrawing when they got bombed, impotently shelling the Lebanese coast on their way out. Clinton faced two hostile branches of government and a hostile press and still tried to get Bin Laden. Bush has control of all three branches of government, a press stacked in his favor and still he whines like a cornered weasel. Some of the KO haters say well yeah Bush failed to get Bin Laden at Tora Bora, yeah he let the looters turn Iraq into anarchy, yeah the torture is worse than under Saadam, yes they didn't find the weapons they were looking for, sure the national intelligence estimate says we're less safe now, yep 3000 civilians a month being blown up or tortured to death in Iraq, and on and on, but when Clinton didn't respond to the Cole bombing in the 3 months he had left in office, that really makes them mad. Can someone defend the incompetence of this administration rather than call Keith crazy? Is it crazy to be upset that our country is less safe, that people equate criticism of the president to wanting harm to come to our troops? If anyone doesn't care about the troops it's the president. You have generals coming out saying that the equipment situation is still a joke, especially for the Iraqi forces we are training. Never in history have so many military commanders come out to disagree with the way the war is being prosecuted. Are they all traitors? Or do they have a point?

    Keith Olbermann is the only one in the mainstream media speaking the truth. Someday people will watch these commentaries and wonder why the people of America were too stupid to see what was right in front of their eyes.

    Democracy cannot be spread by the sword any more than Islam can be. Wake up, America!

    "A textbook definition of craziness"
    A special comment on Keith Olbermann's "special comment"

    The headlines about him are, of course, entirely wrong.

    It is not essential that a past sportscaster, leaping and scratching like a monkey posing as a newscaster, finally lost his marbles.

    It is not important that the nescaster's certifiable public chorus has described his rival's tone as “crazed.”

    The nation’s airwaves are under assault by a lunatic whose propaganda can do us as much damage as al Qaida; the nation’s marketplace of ideas is being poisoned by a propaganda company so blatant that Tokyo Rose would’ve quit.

    Nonetheless. The headline is this:[dramatic head turn]

    Keith Olbermann has done what all newscasters have done for five years.

    He has lied about 9/11, and the current presidential administration.

    "Wallace is a monkey," he said of his own fellow newscaster. "That’s the difference in me and some, including all of the Fox Newscasters who are attacking me now. They had months to attack me; they did not try. I tried."

    Thus in his supposed "Murrow" years has Mr. Olbermann taken forceful and triumphant action against honesty, and for us; action as despicable and as reprehensible as any of his career; action as startling and as vomitous, as any, by any one, in these last five years.

    The MSNBC Administration hired Keith Olbermann after 9/11.

    The MSNBC Administration ignored all the evidence gathered by its predecessors.

    The MSNBC Administration did not understand the Daily Briefing entitled "Keith Olbermann Determined To Strike at Heart of U.S., Destroy Employer"

    The MSNBC Administration did not try.

    Moreover, for the last three years and six weeks, the MSNBC Administration, and in particular the President, has been given the greatest “pass” for incompetence and malfeasance in American history!

    President Rick Kaplan was rightly blamed for ignoring the warning signs—some of them, several years old—before being fired.

    President Griffin was correctly blamed for—if not the Great Ratings Depression itself—then the disastrous programming steps he took in the immediate aftermath of the the Rick Kaplan Crash.

    Even Dan Abrams assumed some measure of responsibility for the Ratings Depression—though talk of ratings depression had begun as early as 2002.

    But not this "newsman".

    To hear him bleat and whine and bully at nearly every opportunity, one would think someone else had been responsible for his ratings problems since March 31, 2003.

    That hardly reflects the honesty nor manliness we expect of our newsmen.

    Bill Clinton agreed to that interview. I hardly think he is beyond being questioned about his actions while president. Go look up transcripts of prior Chris Wallace interviews with the Bush administration. Ask them if Wallace gave them softball questions. He didn't. His reputation as a newsman is excellent, unlike Olby's which is spotty at best. Just because you happen to think Olbermann and Clinton are some sort of national treasures does not mean that either is beyond being questioned. To call Wallace a monkey for doing his job was beyond the pale. I realize that Olby wouldn't know what a real interview looks like given his on-air blow job of Clinton on Friday night, but I think what's really driving Olbermann's outrage here is that he forked over tens of thousands of dollars to Clinton and no one paid any attention to HIS interview with Clinton. Here's a hint for you Keith: Next time, ask hard questions instead of blowing them on air as you did with both Clinton & Gore.

    Keith Olbermann sucked as a sportscaster and sucks as a "serious news" guy.

    This nut-job's rant just keep getting more incoherent and discombobulated.Does anyone at MSNBC or Olbermann even fact check or proof this stuff before hand? Guess not. Now that jane hamsher over at firedoglake has tightened the squeeze on the
    olby jewels his rants just keep getting nut-rootier. He kind of reminds me of peteie from American Pie.

    Missy:

    Thanks for the words. I used to post here at OW as divi fili, because I didn't want my user name getting around too much. I know it's a weak defense, but oh well.

    Anyway, since it looks as though I've been banned at ICN, screw it. I'm eddiebear everywhere. My posts at ICN have not been showing up the last few days. I guess tanne has some pull with spud.

    Anyway, I guess when even spud has had enough of KO, when will Brian at TVN follow? I wonder how the ratings were last night? Will KO still be 4th in a 3 man race?

    eddiebear, I don't think your posts were at all over the line. Try posting over there again anyway. He and RGL went at it yesterday but RGL is back posting today!

    And since he's never banned an extreme nutjob like tanne, I'm sure you're not banned!

    Olberdouche's Special Comment was awesome. Like I have said before Keith has to work twice as hard because in Olbyland two negatives = a positive and more tangentially two falsehoods = a truth. Whether it is his lies about Wallace being a "proxy" for the Bush administration or Clinton's excellent record of "trying", he must lie and lie and lie and lie to have his two truths.

    I am sorry fellow Olbermannwatch folks. I will be at least Tivo-ing Meltdown because it is now so loony I cannot keep my eyes off of it, and Johnny $'s summurazation, although well thought out and well written, just won't do.

    There's nothing like the real thing, and Keith is so crazy that I just have to watch it. Maybe Abrams will have Tucker get "Hot and Bothered" about Clinton's latent homosexuality, then he too will be Must See TV.

    We are witnessing the return of "Yellow Journalism" and its name is MSNBC and it is awesome.

    Even surpassing his calling Wallace a "monkey" (class, no?) is Olbermann's proposition that Wallace is part of a conspiracy by Bush to somehow clear the current Administration of any failure to eliminate Bin Laden and al-Qaeada.

    Sure, the Bush White House has failed the country by not getting Bin Laden. Either pre-9/11 or post-9/11. There's no way they can "clear" that history.

    But does any serious person actually believe that Wallace's question was done under command or on orders by Karl Rove or Dick Cheney? Or as part of Bush's machinations?

    Who believes this?

    Olbermann? If so, he's frankly a nut. If not, he's merely slandering people in order to either garner higher ratings or for some other unknown goal.

    In either case, MSNBC has quite a problem on their hands. A problem that will only get worse unless they address it now.

    SMG

    Have I gone insane!?

    Is kieth Olberman actually critisizing a Journalist for taking an interview subject to task and asking provocative questions???


    Ah yes, well, it's quite simple, Kieth only has people he agree's with on his show. Thus, no conflict, thus poor rating as conflict is COMPELLING AND INTERESTING.

    Kieth is truly out of his mind.

    I can't believe this! You all have missed the point of the Olbermann 'special moment' completely. What a tour-de-force!

    Simply brilliant political satire. Far better than anything that Colbert, Mahr or Jon Stewart could come up with.

    Let us examine. First off the set up. A pinstripe suit and fake orange tan, then throw in the constant change in camera position first looking this way then that. Hilarious! The only thing I have seen that was close was Wil Farrell in Anchorman.

    Then the text. Who could have possibly come up with lines as "The worst President since James Buchanan". "Abraham Lincoln shared some responsibility for the Civil War" Using history for humor, stunningly brillant.

    But the line that was worthy of Shakespeare had to be "Bill Clinton is telling the truth"..I could not recover from such laughter that it brought about.

    But like a true master of his medium of political and cultural satire, how did the great Olbermann finish up? With the Edward R. Murrow line of "Good night and good luck"..I have yet to stop laughing at that one.

    One for the moonbat ages. I can't wait for the next episode.

    Another bravura commentary by Keith. No wonder his ratings are up 33% while O'Reilly is tanking"

    Sorry Kimster but as noted yesterday Keith was not up 33%. More like 9%. MSNBC lied about KO's ratings and the gullible TV critic at USA Today printed their lie. Read it and weep:

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2006/09/msm_ko_bandwago_11.html


    "Dude, you gotta register people for this mess so you can get the children out of the adult pool."

    Sorry Jailbones but I prefer open comments with light moderation mostly for spammers.

    The Monarch - that was a great KO story. Loved it!

    "I see no information countering anything that either Keith or Clinton actually said --- only name-calling, the only right-wing tactic left."

    Go Keith!! - you might to try and read, listen and watch something other than Daily Kos, Air America Radio and Countdown. If you did you would learn that much of what Clinton claimed about his efforts to combat al Qaeda were false (the tip off should have been when he started to wag his finger)

    "explain to me why Keith's ratings are climbing and his book is selling like hotcakes?"

    Sorry max but KO's ratings are up just 9% since he began making his rants (and now falling) but from the highest point of his ratings over the winter when MSNBC was airing the Olympics his ratings have declined. So in terms of his actual ratings it depends on where you count from and where you count to. I count from where he was at in 2004 (about 225,000 viewers per night in a quarter) to where he is now (I'd guess about 360,000 viewers per night in the most recent quarter - the 3rd quarter data just came out and I need to check the actual figure). So, yes he increased his audience by about 50% from his first year.
    The problem is that it took him 2 years to add about 135,000 viewers which comes out to adding about 6,000 viewers per month. That pitiful growth has come despite a large amount of promotion by MSNBC, aggressively courting the blue blogs, over 100 glowing articles from TV critics and a wide variety of stunts including donning a rain coat and impersonating Peter Finch doing Howard Beale, his Katrina rants, the recent Bush rants, the MoveOn.org "pledge drive", etc.

    At the current rate he will catch Bill O'Reilly in 2017.

    As for his book sales, I do not have numbers yet but a best guess based on Amazon and NYT approximations he has sold a few thousand books despite a ton of ink and promotion over the past few weeks. And now Keith is NOT on the NYT Best Sellers list. He missed it by three spots:

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2006/09/olbermann_opens.html

    mlong - KO is "only 18th on the Times list"

    no, he is not on the list at all because the list goes to 15 as noted in the post above.

    Relax, no one edited your post. Try reposting it.

    "What a crappy server this is hosted on"

    It is not the server it is the Movable Type software - we get too many simultaneous commenters. We need a new commenting solution. I am working on it.

    Clinton first says he couldn't possibly have responded to the USS Cole attacks because the intelligence community wouldn't verify it and the military wouldn't back him...then Clinton uses Bush's inaction to the Cole as proof that he was even worse on bin Laden and terrorism. wtf?

    ""Abraham Lincoln shared some responsibility for the Civil War" Using history for humor, stunningly brilliant. "

    Uhhh... how about - bible toting slave masters sell humans off as cattle for 400 years with a 100 years of segregation to follow - was responsible for the Civil War!

    Typical denial of facts and reality from white protestants whose only hope for an identity is that of "Christian" which today means - one who lives in denial of reality.

    What is the reality. Google it. Who in America has the highest rate of obesity? Lowest achievement in school? Especially science? Always those who call themselves "Christian." The same group of people that always has to have a common victim to attack as a way to say, "we are the same, we have hate in common." (i.e.. hate for the Clintons as though they were black!)

    All you can do is try to paint Olbermanns manners as significant in hopes of downing playing the powerful effect of his speech. Face it, the so called "base" of the republican party is a bunch of guns-god-gays simpletons whose fathers and grandfathers before them were all uneducated hillbillies. Today they watch NASCAR all day while their obese children sulk over being rejected in school for being fat and for being the children of "Christian" parents. You are doomed to the vicious cycle of denial and repeat. The South will not rise again and America's so called "Christians" are about as worthy of salvation as the plantation owners of old that sent your fore fathers to their grave as they fought to hold onto the immoral practice of slavery. It took the death of JFK and MLK to put an end to the white "Christian" practice of segregation. Always the bible in hand always the same old ignorance.

    One word - loser!

    How embarrassing for you to have to put your political choices behind idiots like Bush and Tom Delay. Greasy sleazy corrupt people that are about as worthy of being called Christian as the fools that voted them into office.

    And I love that only a few sections of the NIE report being leaked in an obvious attempt to put the GOP in a negative light before elections is ignored by Olby, but he seems to find proof of a complex republican conspiracy in every other news story that comes along.

    "And I love that only a few sections of the NIE report being leaked in an obvious attempt to put the GOP in a negative light before elections is ignored by Olby"

    Maybe if you saw the segment where KO and a guest spent 5 minutes talking about the "devastating" NIE reports you wouldn't say KO ignored them.

    And of course these reports are nothing more than a vast left wing conspiracy by the CIA, right? Face it Bush has fucked this nation over. $300 billion dollars flushed down the drain. All his and Cheney's buddies grabbed that cash through no bid contracts and now their kids have second homes with landing strips for their private planes while GI's come home dead or with limbs missing and go back to $9/hr jobs to feed their families.

    Denial is the best you can do to save face. Reality - the NIE reports were put out by white Christian men raised who went through southern state universities and military academies and they all point to the same conclusion - this nation is less safe because Bush and Co. whacked a hornets nest with baseball bat.

    Dumb stupid traitors to this nation and you still defend them. You poor sick losser!

    When the Reverend Young Sung Moon was a fugitive from the law for tax evasion he made a deal with Ed Meese then AG for Reagan that he would put his money into major media (Washington Times I think it was) and be a mouth piece for the right wing Republicans. The deal worked and after Moon paid a small penalty he was free to come to the states all he wanted to make more millions the good old fashion way - conning Christians like all the other hundreds of TV evangelists do.

    Rupert Murdoch saw what moon did and because he was in a similar situation did the same thing but only on a much larger scale. It was Pat Robertson's 700 club that first put woman anchors in a chair with no desk to cover their bare legs while they broadcast their "news". Fox hired these same people behind the 700 Club news format to advise Fox on how to get things started. Today only 700 Club shows as much leg on female anchors as Fox. (they know what Christian men want!)

    Only an idiot would think others would say Bush was behind the creation of Fox News. Bush's critics wouldn't even give him credit for passing his drivers test because he such a dumb ass.

    Get a clue!

    I say again. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, not wearing orange makeup or delivering a scathing indictment. Why can't the Bushies ever admit their Fuhrer is a joke. Bush can never admit a mistake. Instead of taking responsibility he says "mistakes were made." The national intelligence estimate comes out and he calls the considered opinion of all our intellegence agencies "political." Did you see his last press conference, he was more angry and incoherent than Clinton ever was. Get off Olbermann and defend your clown of a president.

    Nixau (?Sarah?) sez:

    "I say again. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result"

    I see, "Nixau." In fact I see you saying this same sentence "over and over again" for some reason. Perhaps you are saying the same thing over and over expecting a different result? Why do you loonies always attribute your own behavior to others? Could it be you are "projecting"?

    Projection: A defense mechanism, operating unconsciously, in which what is emotionally unacceptable in the self is unconsciously rejected and attributed (projected) to others.

    All signs point to yes.

    Good defense of Bush you got there.

    "Get off Olbermann and defend your clown of a president."

    Oh no no no, nixau, you misunderstand. They are totally indifferent to Bush and Republicans. They are only concerned about absolute truth, journalistic standards, and clear grammar, and only as it relates to a certain newsertainmentcaster.

    That's the name of the site after all. I mean, it's not 'Letsdefendtheindefensiblebyattackingastrawman.com"

    Thank you Sigmund. That was a good defense of Bush!?

    "Get off Olbermann and defend your clown of a president."

    I don't need to defend Bush -- he has people to do that for him. For instance, Bush has the Secret Service to defend him from crazies like you.

    This site is about your crazed pal olbermann, not "Mister" Bush. Olbermann's last rant was a classic result of "Bush Derangement Syndrome." He stated that the President is responsible for Chris Wallace's actions. That Bush is somehow after BJ Bill. Keep in mind that Bush Sr. plays golf with BJ Bill, and the President has not criticized his predecessor.

    Indeed, crazy lady, you and your deranged pals are lost in a mental fog, and all the posts on all the blogs in the world will not change that. Even with intensive psychotherapy several times a week, I would not bet on any improvement in your mental status.

    Face it this blog (if you want to call it that) is not about KO but about Bush. Who gives a rats ass about a news caster. Has KO drove our national debt into the ground? Has KO squandered the lives of more than 3000 GI's? Has turned the world against the USA?

    What fuck are you talking about when you say this sight is about KO? Like all your other double speak you just out right lie and make claims that don't add up. You are the one living in a "fog".

    THIS...

    That's the name of the site after all. I mean, it's not 'Letsdefendtheindefensiblebyattackingastrawman.com"

    is funny.

    Thanks anon. Man it's nasty in here with the vipers.

    I love these Konspiracies these Olbyloons post and then say things like "Get a clue". Other funny posts are the ones denigrating Christians as if most of the people who attack Olberdouche are Krazy Kristians. Considering that something like 85% of the American population is Christian this gem of logic was posted:

    "What is the reality. Google it. Who in America has the highest rate of obesity? Lowest achievement in school? Especially science? Always those who call themselves "Christian."

    I love the loons. Keep posting.

    mlong said: "The Cole was attacked on October 12, 2000....Clinton was still President."

    So what's your point? Clinton didn't do anything so why should Bush?

    Clinton had two months to do something. It was the end of his term. Better to leave it for the new president to decide if he wants to start a war or not. Bush didn't even look in to it.

    I love this

    Of all the people in this nation that "project" the most about morality (ie sexuality and abortion) who is that does it the most? Those wrap themselves in the flag and hang a bible in their arm the most do so simply because the majority of them sprang up from the culture of the klan. The so-called base of the Repubs never shuts about morality and patriotism. Yet the origins of their culture comes from a civil war that caused the death of more than 600,000 Americans (not very patriotic if you ask me) and the holding of slaves for more than 400 years.

    No wonder they never shut about morality and patriotism. That is the nature of the hillbilly base known as the bible belt.

    "Out foxed" typed: "What fuck are you talking about when you say this sight [sic] is about KO? Like all your other double speak you just out right lie and make claims that don't add up. You are the one living in a "fog"."

    Gee, I didn't realize that the name of this blog was a conspiracy to divert attention from its true topic -- George W. Bush. I mean, I took Mr. Cox at his word and assumed that "olbermannwatch.com" was about Keith Olbermann. How CRAZY of me!

    In all seriousness, I am working on a cure for Bush derangement syndrome. Some of the signs exhibited Mr Foxed, e.g. claiming a website dedicated to Keith Olbermann is somehow really all about George Bush, indicate his case is severe and advanced.

    The first step in a cure is to admit one has a problem. Mr. Foxed, are you prepared to admit you have a problem?

    I'll admit I have a problem. I live in a nation that fights a global war on theological idiots by putting into power an idiot that exploits theological idiots that vote based on a cultural need to be something other than the same old idiot their father was and their grandfather was. Religion is the problem not Bush or KO. Only an idiot worships an image of a man and calls him god! Bush is in power for the same reason Jimmy Swaggert and Pat Robertson are filthy rich - white southern protestants are the most gullible bunch in US history. How else did a handful of rich plantation owners get hundreds of thousands of poor white trash to fight their war for them? Today it is the exactly the same thing only this time they are dying in Iraq. You poor dumb idiots.

    I am afraid Mr. Foxed is a lost cause. His derangement is beyond the curative powers of my current treatment regimen. Perhaps I could use Mr. Foxed in a public service ad illustrating the true horrors of Bush derangement syndrome?

    I am now convinced there is no right-wing conspiracy. I read the comments posted here, and not one single RePubicHair disputes the essence of Clinton's and Olbermann's argument that Bush didn't try. Not one. Instead, comment after comment about Clinton's and/or Olbermann's supposedly precarious states of mind. Before now, I would've thought, hmf, must've been another Rove memo to his minions. But the utter stupidity of each comment, the sheer avoidance of the original topic, the copy-and-paste mentality of the responses, tells me there is no memo. Oh God no, that requires some measure of intelligence. These doofuses get their cue from the conservative press (which, we all know, is just about every media outlet in this country--John Stewart had a nice little montage of several television anchors leading the Clinton/Wallace story with comments about Clinton's "combativeness" and "anger") and simply repeat it ad nauseum. No real discussion of the facts that might even, oh I don't know, bring about real change in this country. Instead, we get oh wow, Olbermann's lost his mind. Over and over again. They don't call you ditto-heads for nothing now do they. Your arch-enemy Bill Clinton just accused your president of DOING NOTHING to prevent the worst terrorist attack on this country, Keith Olbermann trumpets this fact, and the best you can come up with is oh wow, Olbermann's lost his mind, over and over again??? Pathetic sad and eagerly looking forward to next year's congressional hearings on the Bush administration.

    KFK, do you mean to tell me you aren't going to defend me? Come on you know this all false. Their was no effect at all on the psychi of white people that defended slavery to the death and carried out lynching's for hundreds of years for shear perverse pleasure. They didn't live in denial long after the war was over and fly the confederate flag over their state capital another 100 years. The Dukes of Hazards was about the cultures of the northern states. The monopoly on morality that Christians hold as their own has nothing to do with the long term effects of treating your fellow man as less than cattle for nearly 500 years here in America. That culture of the south with bible in hand then and now came out mentally fit as a tiger. It was all those other people in America that sent hundreds of millions of dollars to big fat slobs like Jerry Fartwell not a bunch of mental basket cases found throughout the entire south.

    Now let's see you try one more time to pretend the point is not made clear here. You and I and everyone else know why Bush has been able to run this nation into the gutter - greasy sleazy Klansman's decedents shooting their wad for 8 years of Bush and then back into the swamps where you and your fore fathers spawned.

    Holy cow! This display of Bush derangement in such raw form is pure gold for my studies! Please do tell me more -- tell me all about my religion and racial make-up. Of course tie all of this in with Bush. Come on loonies -- let's hear you roar!

    I rest my case!

    When I read Mr.Foxed, I think "Tolerance & Diversity". Really....


    I'm scared of the guy and I'm not even religious.

    Yes, it's true that the "conservative" media spent more time talking about the nature of Clinton's temper tantrum and Olbermann's odious spiel than the message they were trying to present. And that's why when you're trying to present a message, you do it with maturity and grace, rather than accusing your interviewer of doing a hit job on you... Or calling people "RePubicHairs". Otherwise your message gets drowned out in the ridiculous tempertantrum you wrapped it up in.

    Clinton should know that by now. Judging from the messages above, Democrats in general don't. That's very, very, very good... If you're a "RePubicHair".

    Another two years in the political wilderness will do you leftists good.

    Bush did do something about terror. He fired Clinton's FBI guy Louie Freeh.

    For instance, what specifically does it mean to say that the Iraq war has worsened the "terrorism threat"? Presumably, the NIE's authors would admit that this is speculation rather than a statement of fact, since the facts suggest otherwise. Before the Iraq war, the United States suffered a series of terrorist attacks: the bombing and destruction of two American embassies in East Africa in 1998, the terrorist attack on the USS Cole in 2000, and the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Since the Iraq war started, there have not been any successful terrorist attacks against the United States. That doesn't mean the threat has diminished because of the Iraq war, but it does place the burden of proof on those who argue that it has increased.

    Probably what the NIE's authors mean is not that the Iraq war has increased the actual threat. According to the Times, the report is agnostic on whether another terrorist attack is more or less likely. Rather, its authors claim that the war has increased the number of potential terrorists. Unfortunately, neither The Post nor the Times provides any figures to support this. Does the NIE? Or are its authors simply assuming that because Muslims have been angered by the war, some percentage of them must be joining the ranks of terrorists?

    As a poor substitute for actual figures, The Post notes that, according to the NIE, members of terrorist cells post messages on their Web sites depicting the Iraq war as "a Western attempt to conquer Islam." No doubt they do. But to move from that observation to the conclusion that the Iraq war has increased the terrorist threat requires answering a few additional questions.

    Danny Boy, Tommy Boy, Gumball Boy, Ill- Informed jackasses all

    So The cherry picking of this NIE report by what you mental cases would call a whistle blower. I just got done watching the Bush press conference. The WHOLE NIE report is being declassified so we will see whats up with that.

    I knew something was up on my way home from the city last night. Listening to my favorite moonbat Lionel(WOR-710 AM), and the callers were saying Keith was having a Edward R. Morrow moment.

    First off let me say that while Keith is getting very close to the edge. He HAS gone into full fledged creep land!! In his Bill O'Reilly rant last night, saying how he stalked Bill on the field last sat. at Yankee Stadium. Two Questions: If it was this past sat., the Yankees were in Tampa Bay. If it was the saturday before, Yes they were home but, Keith said he was following Bill on the field? since when do they let people on the field. Before the game when there is no one in the stadium? Except reporters? And we are just hearing about this now? Tonight? He lays this on us nine days later? Shurely we would have read this in Page Six or Rush and Malloy. And the "here kitty,kitty? MAJOR CREEP OUT!!!!!

    Special Commments for Mongoloid Crowd

    What else is there to say except that "The Merchant of Stupidity" was dealing it WHOLESALE!!! Ten minutes of that endless dribble. Too bad Tokyo Rose isn't still alive, the only time she would have laughed harder would have been when she saw Keith's pathetic ratings! The wacky camera changes. The almost comming to tears. The Blubbering Buffon. Wait, wasn't that Bhagdad Bob having a good belly laugh?

    Fox First. MSLSD last. Cream rises to the top. Garbage falls to the bottom.

    But now it's time for my "DEEP THOUGHT OF THE DAY." With Olby's ratings down to the Zombie Lunatic Fringe viewers. One must ask, If Olby asked his followers to go with him to a place in South America, and then bring them under a tent. And, then ask them to drink a glass of kool-aid that might have a foreign substance in it. His Zombie Loons would still drink the Kool-aid no questions asked? THINK ABOUT IT!

    Even tvsnoozer can't help Moron's ratings, He now has to report how CNN....NOT MSNBC! Is closing the gap. Heck! What did the great "Chapstick Interview" get Dopey? Third place, with O'Reilly being off that night!!

    My special comment to Loons...........Those Karl Rove indictments?........Don't worry! They will be here any minute, hang in there.

    I do have one worry about Keith, when as John Gibson said. "They turn out the lights over there." And if Dead Air is gone and Keith doesn't get hired at N.P.R. or at Jane Fonda's all women network. Does he have a license to carry? I don't worry about him, its just if he gos to off himself. He misses and hits a poor bystander. You know, a la Barney Fife.

    One last thing before I go. And yes this has to deal with Orange Boy, Now Edward R. Morrow was before my time but, Morrow became famous for exposing Joe Mc Carthy but. Did he not have the balls to face Mc Carthy on tv? Something the little whimpy boy doesn't have? A set of? Why? Keith would be afraid the bony-ass Ann Coultor would bitch slap his ass around. I mean whimp can call out people on his Bully Pulput, But to go out and face those he accuses. Now that takes a man with real balls. A Morrow, not a Moron! Somebody check Keith. Boxers, tightey whiteys, or panties!

    Okay one last thing:

    Olby calls someone at Fox a monkey and gets praised from the looney left

    Back in the day Howard Cosell on Monday Night Football called somebody a monkey and the looney left called for him to be fired.

    That's what you always can get from the left. Fair And Balanced.

    Oh and jackasses hiding behind Jesus is Lord names. That takes real moronic balls. But I thought the Looney left belived only in "The Collective?" not in Jesus Christ? Better hope for your sake pal he is not real or maybe your eternity will be spent tied to a chair and having to watch "The Factor" over and over again. Wait would that be worse than being locked in a 50 degree room with "The Red Hot Chili Peppers" playing and somebody giving you a pink belly? Somebody call John Mc Cain we need a ruling!!!

    In case you are wondering, the DUmmies have linked Olbermann Watch and encouraged their readers to "taunt" the clear-thinking readers of this site.

    Of course, don't bother to try that over there - those supposed champions of free speech will ban you if you don't tow the party line. And WE are the Nazis? Ha!

    Hey Pickle, the moderator of this fine blog labelled, with maturity and grace, your hypocritical post about leftist temper tantrums and name-calling "LoonyLefty!" And your on his side!! Maybe you need to re-post your pointless rant (still no mention of Bush dropping the ball pre-9/11) and spell it out FONE-ET-IK-KLEE. That might help.

    I just got done watching a segment on "The Factor" website. Bringing into question Lisa Myers report on weapons. And who comes on to defend that report. LISA MYERS!! Laryngitis and all! Now who has the bigger set of balls? Wait, why didn't she go on Keith's show? She wouldn't have to deal with Col. Hunt or O'Reilly? Wow! major balls for that woman!!!!

    Welcome democraticunderground!!! Welcome!! But pleased be warned! Anything you post will go up unlike you're site. So please think twice before putting up that dopey comment. But really WELCOME, to a real free speech site! By the way I would post over there but, I've been banned from you're free speech site. But since some of you are here, I do have a question. Is it true that everyone at democraticunderground starts their day with "The Olby Salute"?

    Never a discouraging word is to be heard either on Olbermann's show or Democratic Underground. That's how liberals differ from moderates and conservatives. They don't want to hear anything that might might them think, anything that might make them question their party leaders. And they don't want to be questioned lest someone confronts them with the truth. But Bob doesn't moderate comments, he doesn't delete them either. He allows those of all political stripes to post here. Can you say that about your favorite liberal sites? Of course note. Contrary opinions are NOT to be heard. Isn't that the way the founding fathers intended it after all? It is according to the libs.

    All Chris Wallice did was ask a simple question. He wasn't combative or impolite. He was rather gracious and totally taken aback by the Mr. "methinks he doth protest too much" Clinton's finger-jabbing, "neo-con"-calling, eyes-squinting, "I don't criticize the President"-lying antics.

    This performance was not by one who was "sandbagged," but rather by one whose personal demons were finally let loose. Wallace hardly got a word in edge-wise for Clinton's tirade of childish lies and unpresidential decorum. Clinton will forever be eaten alive by the demons of his failures as president--failures based completely upon his unscrupulous character and dishonesty.

    Regarding KO's silly ranting and raving, it's no different from any other propaganda I've heard before. He should have stuck to describing what's happening in the NFL and beach vollyball. Politics and foreign events are obviously beyond his tiny grasp.

    Cool, if Olby keeps doing more Special comments, by Nov the moderates will be voting straight GOP!








    I like Keith Olbermann. He is smarter than Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'really
    put together. And it is really nice of who ever maintains this page to give all
    of supporters of Keith a place to slam all the idiots that think Bush is smarter
    than Clinton. Can you imagine Clinton and Bush in a debate. All Bush would have
    to say is "I like Jesus" and all the bafoons would say he won the debate.
