    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    April 25, 2007
    MSM KO Bandwagon #234: New York Observer

    Okay, it's not your usual fawning mainstream tripe, but it is about Keith Olbermann. Seems Keith is going to be kicking back soom in some fancy new digs, the Trump Palace to be exact. H/T to the helpful Olbermannwatch poster who decided to share this little article with us all here at Owatch!

    As a pleasingly debauched symbol of his transformation into a top-tier, top-paid newsman, Keith Olbermann has bought a sprawling 40th-floor apartment in an Upper East Side Trump condominium. According to a deed filed late Tuesday afternoon in public records, the Countdown with Keith Olbermann host paid $4.2 million, the exact asking price for the five-room apartment.“The most fabulous views!!” says a giddy Brown Harris Stevens listing with brokers Lisa Lippman and Scott Moore. “On a clear day, you can see forever.” There are different perches for those inestimable views: The 31½-foot-long living room, master bedroom and den each have balconies. Which perch does he favor? A spokesperson said that Mr. Olbermann was unavailable for comment.The former sportscaster now has a chef’s kitchen, plus twin walk-in closets and “two and a half beautiful marble bathrooms.” According to the listing, all that makes for “elegant living at its best!” Mr. Olbermann’s elegant seller is the limited-liability corporation Amsco Realty.Despite all its marbled, Trump-inspired luxury, the condo’s price didn’t top the $6.5 million that Maria Bartiromo over at CNBC just paid for her five-level townhouse on East 62nd Street. And perhaps to Mr. Olbermann’s eventual chagrin, the apartment is veritably petite compared to the gated, waterside Manhasset spread belonging to his arch nemesis, Bill O’Reilly of Fox News.

    You can view the listing here.

    With the floorplan here.

    And if you're really curious, here's a link to look up the contract, and financial details.

    If you liked the last link I gave you guys, your gonna love this one...plently of gems!
    SI Interview:

    Thanks again for the hat tip. I've noted and blogged on the article.

    Are you folks upset that they raised your space rental ? You folks are beyond sad. Do you think anyone would miss you if you were to leave society and live amongst the wolves ?

    Bill, I would never wish anything like that on the wolves.

    I think Cox owns. Owning is always a far wiser investment than renting after all.

    We definately don't want the loons to pay more rent, be any more sad,(could they be?) or live with the wolves because they wouldnt't survive 3 seconds.

    yeah ok rivermutt... you f---ing tool

    Bill, have you noticed that arguing with Jeff (RoyalKing) is a lot like barking at your neighbor's dog.

    It's tempting to do but silly nonetheless.

    Especially when you don't have a leg to stand on because you have absolutely NO credibility! Debunked how many times? It was like a part time job just keeping track. I can barely keep track of your lies and hypocritical spews/comments. I can't sit on here all day long like you can so I know a lot of them have slipped by unaccounted for, lil mikey.

    LOL....Jeff: "I can't sit on here all day long like you do so I know a lot of them have slip by unaccounted for, lil mikey"

    Gosh Jeff, it must be SO tough for you! The constant fear that big bad 'mikey' might get something by you...and GASP! you won't even get a chance to 'debunk' me.

    The weight of the world rests on your capable shoulders, Jeff!

    Excuse me for stealing a phrase, but now I'm REALLY laughing my ass off too!

    Katie Turic, give us a limerick about your new digs!

    The condo is hard to believe
    You'd think there would be no grief
    But it's sure not a dream
    I'm ready to scream
    Cause I share it with an ass named Keith

    This place has a fabulous club
    And a spa where I get a back rub
    But there's one thing I wish
    That Keith, the big fish
    Would allow me to use the bath tub

    BRAVO Katie!

    great thanks!

    General David Petraeus went to Capitol Hill Wednesday to brief Congress behind closed doors on the progress of the surge. No word on whether he walked across the Potomac to get there.

    But given the glowing terms increasingly desperate Republicans have been using to describe him, I'm sure they wouldn't have been surprised if he had.

    He's been lauded as, among other things, "an expert on counter-insurgency" (President Bush), "a determined, resourceful and bold commander" (John McCain), "a superb officer, one of the finest I've ever known" (Dick Cheney), "a student of counterinsurgency warfare" (Orrin Hatch), and "Bush's Grant" (Lindsay Graham).

    His name has become a verbal trump card. As soon as you mention Petraeus, it's game over. Why continue talking? He's a one-man cavalry, riding to the rescue armed with a Princeton PhD and a successful stint in Mosul. The pro-war crowd's olive drab savior -- able to confer military absolution on America's greatest foreign policy disaster with the wave of his hand.

    These bold pronouncements -- and attendant irrational expectations -- are almost always buttressed by the fact that, as we have been told again and again, "General Petraeus literally wrote the book on counterinsurgency." Literally.

    Which he did, spending the last year overseeing the preparation of FM 3-24, the Army's newly-revised counterinsurgency field manual.

    The trouble is, most of those touting his authorship have clearly never read his magnum opus. Or perhaps they have, didn't like the plotline, and decided to ignore or alter the contents to fit their political agenda. (This, of course, is standard operating procedure for the Bushies. Just this week, the president suggested the 2006 elections offered a mandate for his policy of escalating the war on Iraq, and Dick Cheney used the findings of the Iraq Study Group to slam Harry Reid, conveniently skipping over the fact that the ISG recommended a troop withdrawal timetable similar to the Democrats'.)

    Now they are willfully ignoring Petraeus' blueprint for success -- and acting like they are following it to a tee. His newly-minted counterinsurgency approach calls for a ratio of 25 soldiers per 1,000 residents -- which would require 120,000 soldiers to provide the proper security for Baghdad, and roughly three times that amount for all of Iraq. But let's just focus on the 120,000 soldiers that, according to the manual written by Petraeus -- "the expert on counterinsurgency," remember? -- are needed to secure Baghdad. Simply put: we're not even close to that number. And never will be. Even after all of the planned 21,500 additional troops are sent to the embattled capitol, there will still only be 85,000 security forces there -- and that includes significant numbers of Iraqi security forces, whose readiness and loyalty have repeatedly proven to be unreliable at best.

    So Petraeus says it will take 120,000 soldiers to succeed. Instead, he's being asked to do it on the cheap -- and pretend that he's getting what he needs. And this is just in terms of troops. Petraeus' manual also says that a muscular military presence is just 20 percent of what is needed for a counterinsurgency effort to succeed -- the other 80 consists of establishing political and economic reform, two areas in which the United States is also failing miserably.

    Despite this, Petraeus, to his eternal discredit, is going along with the charade -- probably crossing his fingers behind his back -- and promising to let us know how it's really going sometime this summer. But we don't need to wait until sometime this summer. We can see the news, and count the bodies, and know for ourselves that this is all just another case of prolonging the inevitable, of asking more young men and women to die for a lost cause. For the first time since the war began, we've just had five straight months with 80 or more U.S. fatalities.

    In ancient Greek dramas, an apparently insoluble crisis was sometimes resolved by the intervention of a god, brought on stage by an elaborate piece of equipment. This contrived resolution was known as a deus ex machina ("god from a machine").

    In this present insoluble crisis, defenders of the war like to imagine Gen. Petraeus flying in on a giant Blackhawk suddenly transforming chaos into order. A Petraeus ex machina.

    But this is no ancient Greek drama. It is an all-too-real American tragedy. And the sooner the White House stops waiting for a play-acting god to intervene, the sooner we can do the right thing and bring our troops home.

    Keith is that you cutting and pasting Zsa Zsa's bleatings again?;_ylt=ApaKbtghtpv0z47MqK1pDcId6sgF

    For the last time, get out of that tub and let me use it for Crissake!!! Or at least if your going to stay in it, quit mumbling about O'Reilly kicking your ass on a nightly basis!

    WASHINGTON, D.C.— Jim Manley, Spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, released the following statement today after comments made by Vice President Dick Cheney:

    Vice President Cheney should be the last person to lecture anyone on how leaders should make decisions.

    Leaders should make decisions based on facts and reality, two words that seem to be foreign to the Vice President

    This is the same guy who said Iraq has weapons of mass destruction and that we would be greeted as liberators. And it's the same guy who continues to assert that Saddam Hussein had links to al Qaeda long after our own intelligence agency conclusively refuted this notion. To suggest he lacks credibility would be an understatement.

    The Vice President's and others' attacks on those who disagree with their failed policies are signs of desperation. They are lashing out because they know the days are numbered for their failed strategy and that the American people and a bipartisan majority are determined to force this Administration to change course in Iraq.

    Cheney's an absurd buffoon. I can't believe how the talking heads on the teevee seem to quiver when he appears. What a joke.
