    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 18, 2006
    Olbermann Visits Capitol Hill?

    CNN is reporting "An armed man crashed his vehicle into a security barricade at the U.S. Capitol on Monday, ran into the building and was arrested, forcing the complex to briefly be locked down, authorities said.

    A spokeman said the man was captured by police after running through the Rotunda in the center of the Capitol, bumping his head on a doorway before heading down a stairway into the basement where he was found hiding in a bath tub. He said the man appeared to be having a seizure, and was taken to a hospital.

    Construction workers and police said the man drove an SUV through a barricade at the Capitol, where a major visitors' center is under construction. The vehicle also crashed into a water fountain on the plaza in the middle of the construction area. Witnesses said the man, wearing a blue ballcap with the white interlocking "NY" and a rain coat, ran into the Capitol near the Rotunda shouting "someone take me seriously" and was pursued by police.

    Stupid radical right wingers.

    Counldn't be him -- Keith can't drive. The only way he could have gotten away from the capital would have been to go down to the baseman and hijack the Senate subway.

    Oh, wait a second, if he does that, we're back to the head bumping problem again...


    Oh come on! That was a LITTLE funny! :-)

    Actually just read your title, my comment was about the guy that drove through the fence, not you.

    I'll give you that, it was pretty funny now that I read the title.

    "Take me seriously!!!!" See what you are driving this man to do?

    LOL, that is funny, Bob!

    I wonder if Keith's new "special comment" tonight will be a blow-by-blow recount of his "incident" today?

    How full of it can he be? Per the newsletter:

    "An apology from the President of the United States?

    Keith's COMMENTARY, tonight, at the end of the broadcast."

    I'm sure President Bush is oh so concerned with Olberding's "COMMENTARY."

    Can't be KO, since his bathwater was probably not cold yet.

    "I wonder if Keith's new "special comment" tonight will be a blow-by-blow recount of his "incident" today? "

    He's going to blast Bush for his statement last Friday where Bush said:

    "It is unacceptable to think that there's any kind of comparison between the behavior of the United States of America and the action of Islamic extremists who kill innocent women and children to achieve an objective, Terry."

    Of course, saying that it "is unacceptable to think" doesn't mean that one cannot literally think that. It's a figure of speech that we've all used when we think an idea is so far-fetched that it doesn't merit discussion.

    Olbermann understands this to mean that Bush is trying to stop people from expressing this view or having this thought. And so he will trot out his Orwellian references and his Nixonian analogies to smear the president again in hopes of adding a few thousand more viewers.


    Here's a "preview", specially pimped by an "extra" email which has no doubt already been posted on every liberal leftist blog on the internet.

    "The President of the United States owes this country an apology.
    It will not be offered, of course.
    He does not realize its necessity.
    There are now none around him who would tell him - or could.
    The last of them, it appears, was the very man whose letter provoked the President into the conduct, for which the apology is essential.
    An apology is this President's only hope of regaining the slightest measure of confidence, of what has been, for nearly two years, a clear majority of his people."

    Wonder when Olby will get around to apologizing to all of us for the sorry excuse of the thing he calls a nightly newscast?

    Olby answers to no one, he says, so don't hold your breath ever waiting for an apology or retraction. He's not one to commit random acts of humility, so it seems.

    Is there even a record of him ever exhibiting a SINGLE act of humility?

    This was just another "harry high school" commentary. He can't be serious to go off on Bush for his comment "It is unacceptable to think.." it was just another way of saying "I cannot accept that someone would compare our government to .. fill in the blank. Come on - if you are going to be a Bush-hater and promo your comment for 20 minutes - come up with something better than this slop. I did enjoy the "spitting through his teeth" comment about Bush. That takes some balls for Olby after his spit flying near tearful delivery of his "hole in the ground" sermon last week.

    Whatever is said after "It's unacceptable to think..." is absolutely irrelevant. That opening line of a sentence set the context. Dubya's command of the English language is below what I think is an acceptable level. At least for the leader of the free world. Leaders must be literate. They must not be some recycled version of a "C" student who received an "F" in the real world of running an oil company. My God, George, your entire family history centers aroung black gold. What do you not understand? Did you get left behind?

    Linguistics aside, the ability to correlate nuance with premise is, by definition, the pivot point of diplomacy. Mr. Bush is correct. Literacy is the key to understanding freedom and how to apply that principle to everyday life. Certainly Mr. Bush learned something from the First Librarian. I cringe everytime he uses the word justice as a verb. An action verb at that. Mr. President, justice is a noun. It is a thing. An idea. A principle. It is not a discourse in some haphazard and ill thought out plan to rebuild the foundations of far-flung societies with the mortar of Christian self-righteousness. By doing so, you profess to fight a battle of good versus evil, us versus them, right versus wrong. This is not a new idea, sir. The truth is not what you say it is nor is it what the majority believe it is. Truth lies in freedom and liberty - the right of power to live one's own life without some sort of threat, fear or retaliation. To masquerade around on the World Stage with a cowboy persona and t-shirt diplomacy while subterfuge drips from your lower taxes higher spending lips is embarrassing to those who stroll the halls of academia scrambling to develop a paradigm to recover from the mess America is in. And it happened on your watch, Mr. President. Your actions and those of "your" administration have demonstrated how unchecked, absolute power corrupts to the point of attempting to take away the inalienable rights bestowed upon all and endowed by the Creator. Somehow, you have fostered the notion that human rights and liberties must be relinquished in order to preserve them. That sort of convoluted logic serves as the acid of dissent which eats away at the very moral and intellectual fabric of some utopic America you aspire to return this land to.

    It's easy to understand that the only reason you were elected is because America was intoxicated by the false premise of economic prosperity. False because they never actually had what they thought they had. And when they lost what they never had, they decided they liked the idea of having it so much that their souls becam accustomed to having it. One way to give it back is through financial incentives such as tax cuts and huge pork barrel subsidies. That is, to those who have "access" as you put it. What it boils down to, sir, is you robbed the treasury of the people to retroactively pay back your "base" for their votes. Funny how you were a "C" student and failed businessman, yet have enough money to pay the tuition of every student in the electoral college!

    Rant complete with this closing quote:

    "It does not matter who gets the most votes, all that matters is who counts them." -Stalin

    P.S. Please have the decency, guts and character to step down. Resign now for the good of our people. For what you are doing is not noble. It is mutinous.

    But that's just what I THINK. I could be confused...


    -Captain Al

    Mutinuous means "Participating in open revolt against a government or ruling authority".

    Which tees up the OlbyLoon quote of the day:

    Captain Al wrote: "Dubya's command of the English language is below what I think is an acceptable level...Resign now for the good of our people. For what you are doing is not noble. It is mutinous."
