    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 10, 2008
    Countdown w/ Olbermann, Sept 10 2008: OlbyWatch Recap

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

    Host: Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann

    Topics:

    • PALIN SMEAR DU JOUR
    • PALIN SMEAR DU JOUR PART DEUX
    • SPECIAL EDUCATION KOMMENT

    Guests:

    • Chris Kofinis (D)
    • Eugene "Geno" Robinson, Obama tank-dweller
    • Richard Wolffe, UK exchange student

    There were the usual repetitions of Oralmann's favorite lies (for the 89th time, Palin never said she sold the plane on eBay--Gawd, are you that insulated or do you simply not care if you ever spew the truth?). But the great moment tonight came from Edward R Olbermann named himself Worst Person in the World. What? How can that be, you ask? Read on and you will see.

    philly:
    Barry tank dweller Chris Kofinis claims the campaign is going to hit McCain and Palin "hard and fast". Wasn't Barry supposed the be the "Candidate of Change" who would elevate the campaign above the old politics of dissent and smears? And now Kofinis says Barry is about to go on the attack (or his lawyers are, anyway). More moonbat lies and hypocrisy. And did Olby just try to tie the Minnesota bridge collapse and Sarah Palin together in the same sentence? Unbelievable.


    dcmeyer:
    Mental heath expert obly claiming McCain suffering from "projection" about Gov. Palin and Lipstick comment by Barry. Olby claimed McCain was dealing from the bottom of the deck is his supposed attacks on Obama and that he was manufacturing outrage over the Palin remarks. The Wolffeman agreed that the remarks were "innocent" and McCain "lies" and "swiftboats" Obama. Obama isn't going to put up with McCain's "bullcrap" anymore.

    #4 Obama taking off the gloves in regards to 527's. Disgraced Edwards minion Chris Kofinis calls McCain mean and says Obama good, McCain has no solutions. Kofinis went on to say that McCain's policies will make the country worse off. #3 Palin "scandals" Olby claimed Palin family members harrassed the unstable brother-in-law. Olby lies again about the jet and bridge to nowhere. Geno Robinson is brought in to once again agree with fat ass. Olby gives Biden debate advice!

    Dogs that didn't bark:
    BIDEN: 'HILLARY MIGHT HAVE BEEN BETTER PICK THAN ME'
    DEMS WORRY OBAMA MAY BE BLOWING IT...
    SC Dem chair: Palin primary qualification is she hasn't had abortion...


    Seattle John:
    #4 - Obama says enough is enough. Kofinis then says that "If Sarah hits, (they need) to hit back and hit back hard!" LOL, I think when Obama says 'enough is enough' he must actually be talking about how Sarah Palin and her popularity has gotten into his campaign's head. Number 3 was Olberass being concerned that the Palin family was in a custody fight, between Sarah's sister and her young-son-tazing husband, and that a judge didn't like all the negative things that were said by the parties. Oooooh, negative comments in a custody/divorce hearing. What a scoop! Part of this story was a side-track about the 'bridge to nowhere'. I'm sure it was the time constraints on the segment, but Olby forgot to mention that both Obama and Biden voted multiple times to *fund* the project -and- never opposed it.


    MikeC:
    #2: The Media Matters Minute. Worser was Felix Gillette the New York Observer. Yet again, I say: How dare they tell the truth about the chaos zone at (MS)NBC. (rapidly): "Not only does Andrea [Mitchell] say she never said that. She says she never said anything at that dinner, and Mr. Gillette and the New York Observer never contacted her or anybody at NBC News for a comment or a denial; one of the reasons Andrea Mitchell is 8,000 times the reporter *he* is." More PR/damage control by Attack Dog Olbermann.

    Worst was Rick Goddard (retired Air Force Major General), a Republican running for Congress in Georgia's 8th District. Once again, Jane Fonda Olbermann went after a serviceman. His crime was referring to NBC's Ron Allen as a "very uppity newscaster." The "crime" occurred last week at the RNC when Ron interviewed Newt Gingrich on the convention floor. And Rip 'n Read is only talking about this now? Hmm. Wonder why. Seriously, it was dumb of him to do that, and Rev. Jesse Olbermahn played the race card. Out comes the accusatory paper. (gleeful sarcasm, rightward head tilt): "Great, General, but you *said* 'uppity'...which is traditionally followed...(flashing paper toward camera, grin turns to disgust): by the N-word!"

    That brings us to O'Reilly Attack #509. Of course. Why not attack the guy who actually sat down with Obama one-on-one? Bathtub Boy stayed in his bubble and spoke via satellite. Billo the Clown! [ding!] Bill was "lying about the ratings again." Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann trotted out the Ted Baxter voice and proved me right. Here's what I said yesterday at Johnny Dollar's Place:

    BOR is going to refer to KO in tonight's Talking Points Memo. I predict this will make BOR a Worst Person tomorrow night.
    Bill ended up only referring to (MS)NBC, but was, as usual, quite critical of them. Here is the T-Points transcript and video.

    Keithy pimped out the demo numbers for the DNC, looking down at a paper...again. "In what Fox calls the all-important advertising demographic, 25 to 54-year-old viewers, for the Democratic Convention, MSNBC beat Fixed News [ding!] in primetime an average of...917,000, 820,000...12%. Fox, last. 86 years in television, Bill, and you still don't understand the ratings?" Look who's lecturing whom about ratings.


    J$:
    And then, saved for the last Nielsen moment, tonight's Special Education Komment. See the appendix below for the full text, complete with our special annotations of the performance instructions to Oralmann, plus our exclusive OlbyRobot dramatic reading. But one glaring example of Olbypocrisy needs to be highlighted and pointed out, because it shows that no matter how vapid and empty a vessel you may think Krazy Keith is, he's really worse. Way down deep he's shallow. And a stone hypocrite.

    Tonight he accused John McCain of putting on pretend, phony, nonexistent grief over the victims of 9/11. The mocking tone couldn't have been clearer:

    Senator, as you and your Republicans shed your phony, crocodile, opportunistic tears tomorrow on 9/11 TM, in front of the utterly disingenuous banner "Country First"...

    Hmm. Why does that sound familiar? Maybe because it sounds like something John Gibson once said--something that led Bathtub Boy to excoriate John Gibson as "worst person in the world"! To wit:

    Gibby played a tape of comedian Jon Stewart's heartfelt anguish from September 20th... Gibson and his producer mocked it. He called it Jon Stewart sobbing. That idiot sidekick called Stewart a, quote, phony.... Jon Stewart's expression of pain after 9/11 and yours, Gibby, and mine, that was the unity. No matter what kind of administration propagandist I think you are and how I will mock you for it, I would never doubt the sincerity of your pain. You have a lot of damn nerve doubting the sincerity of anyone else's. John Gibson, today's Worst Person in the World.

    Yeah, Herr Olbermann would never doubt the sincerity of someone else's pain over 9/11. Hey, Fat Ass! You have a lot of damn nerve doubting the sincerity of anyone's, including John McCain's. By your own words, you have just named yourself Worst Person in the World!


    Katy Turic:
    Keith's no longer the "breaking news guy"
    David Gregory told Keith "bye-bye"
    Gave him a pimp slap
    Now Keith wears a dunce cap
    And that's making the Kos Kids cry


    And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 858th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted". Great thanks to our OlbyWatch recappers who contributed!

    APPENDIX: Tonight's Special Education Komment dramatic reading by the OlbyRobot [file now uploaded--enjoy!]:

    APPENDIX: Tonight's Special Education Komment (annotated):

    As promised, a Special Comment about our sad anniversary tomorrow.

    Or, more correctly, what our sad anniversary tomorrow has been turned into by the presidential administration, and the current Republican candidates for President and Vice President.

    This is supposed to be a day of remembrance. Remembrance of the attack, remembrance of the national unity which followed it.

    [head shake] 

    Most important of all, remembrance of the dead.

    But 9/11 has become a brand name. A Republican campaign slogan. Propaganda of the lowest form. 9/11 has become...

    [insert sigh here]

    ...9/11 with a trademark logo.

    9/11 (TM) has sustained a president who long ago should have been dismissed, or impeached. It has kept him and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office without -- literally -- any visible means of support.

    [look down at imaginary notes]

    9/11 (TM) has made possible the greatest sleight-of-hand in our nation's history.

    The political party in office at the time of the attacks, at the local, state and national levels, the party which uniformly ignored the warnings and the presidential administration already through twenty percent of its first term and no longer wet behind the ears, have not only thus far escaped any blame for the malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur, but that presidency and that party, have managed to make it seem as if the other political party would be solely and irredeemably responsible for any similar catastrophe in the future.

    [look down, camera pivot #1]

    Thus, Sen. McCain, were you able to accomplish a further inversion of reality at your party's nominating convention last week.

    There was the former Mayor of the City of New York,  the one who took no counter-terrorism measure in his seven years in office between the first attack on the World Trade Center, and the second attack.

    Nothing, except to insist, despite all advice and warning, that his Emergency Command Center be moved directly into the World Trade Center.

    [ramp up the volume here]

    Yet there was this man, Sir, Rudolph Giuliani, quite succinctly dismissed as "A Noun, a Verb, and 9/11," and repudiated even by Republican voters,  transformed into the keynote speaker, Sen. McCain at your convention.

    And his childish, squealing, braying, Tourette's-like repetition of 9/11 (TM), was greeted not as conclusive evidence that he is consumed by massive guilt - hard-earned guilt, in fact  but rather as some kind of political tour-de-force, an endorsement of your Vice Presidential nominee, a rookie governor, a facile and slick con artist.

    The blind endorsing the bland, to a chorus of 9/11 (TM), 9/11 (TM), 9/11 (TM.)

    Your ringing mindless cheer of "We've Kept You Safe Since Then." While nobody asks "doesn't then count?"

    All of this, sadistically disrespecting the dead of New York, and Washington, and Shanksville. Endorsed,  Sen. McCain. Exploited, Sen. McCain. Trademarked, Sen. McCain by you.

    [use the look of sadness as you glance downward, and don't forget camera pivot #2]

    And yet of course the exact moment in which Sen. McCain's Republicans showed the nation exactly how far they have fallen from the Better Angels of Mr. Lincoln's Nature, came the next night.

    The television networks were told that the Convention would pause, early in the evening, when children could still be watching, for a 9/11 Tribute, and they were encouraged to broadcast that tribute.

    What we got was not a tribute to the dead of 9/11, nor even a tribute to the responders, or the singularity of purpose we all felt. The Republicans gave us sociological pornography, a virtual snuff film.

    Years ago, responsible television networks, to the applause of this nation, and the relief of of its mental health authorities, voluntarily stopped showing the most graphic of the images of the World Trade Center, except with the strongest of warnings.

    And yet, the Republicans, at their convention, having virtually seized control of the cable news operations, showed the worst of it.

    This is all anyone with a conscience can show you of what the Republicans showed you. The actual collapse of the smoking towers.

    A fleeting image of what might have been a victim leaping to his death from a thousand feet up. And something new. From this angle, ground-level, perfectly framed images, of the fireball created when the second plane hit the second tower.

    It was terrifying. 

    [raise the eyebrows; they're big so that always gets attention]

    After all its object was to terrify. Not to commemorate, not to call for unity, not to remember the dead. But to terrify.

    To open again the horrible wounds, to brand the skin of this nation with the message -- as hateful as the terrorists' own, that you must vote Republican or this will happen again and you will die.

    And just in case that was not enough, to also dishonestly and profanely conflate 9/11 with the 1979 Iran Hostage Crisis...

    [use the voice of incredulity here]

    ...to stoke the flames of paranoia about another Middle Eastern Nation.

    This was a 9/11 Tribute. Not to the dead, nor to the unity. But a tribute to how valuable 9/11 has been as a political tool for the Republican Party. 9/11... (TM.)

    [pause, camera pivot #3]

    Sen. McCain, you had promised us a clean campaign. You could be Snow-White the rest of the way, Sir, yet that manipulative videotape from your convention should tar you always in the minds of decent Americans.

    And still, as this seventh 9/11 (TM) approaches that, Sir, is not the worst of your contributions to the utter politicizing of a day that should be sacrosanct to all of us.

    [again, look down at pretend notes; gotta firm up that Edward R Murrow image]

    Hard to believe, but the Senator has done worse with 9/11 and the evil behind it.

    We heard it last week in Minnesota, we've heard it off and on since January but Senator McCain said it most concisely in June.

    "Look," he said. "I know the area, I've been there, I know wars, I know how to win wars, and I know how to improve our capabilities so that we will capture Osama bin Laden -- or put it this way, bring him to justice. We will do it. I know how to do it."

    Sen. McCain seems to be quite serious, that he and he alone, not the CIA, nor the U.S. Military, nor the current President can capture bin Laden.

    Thus we must take him at his word, that this is no mere ludicrous campaign boast.

    We must assume Sen. McCain truly believes he is capable of doing this, and has been capable of doing this, since last January. "We will capture Osama bin Laden... we will do it. I know how to do it."

    [OK, this is the first screaming moment; make sure you shake you head as you bellow into the camera--and remember this is camera pivot #4]

    Well then, Senator, you'd better go and do it hadn't you?

    Because, Sir, if a man or woman in this nation, Democrat or Republican, had a clear and effective means of capturing or killing Osama bin Laden...

    If that person had been advertising his claim, Senator for eight months.

    [louder!]

    But if that person not only refused to go to responsible authorities in government and advise them of this plan to catch bin Laden, but further announced he would not even begin to enact this secret plan to corral the world's most hated man until the end of next January.

    [wave your papers around here as you ramp up the decibels]

    What would be your description of such an individual, Senator? Charlatan? Do-nothing? Opportunist? Sen. McCain, if you have, if you have had a means of capturing Osama bin Laden, and you do not immediately inform some responsible authority of the full scope of that plan, you are to some degree great or small aiding and abetting Osama bin Laden.

    If you could assist in capturing him now, Sen. McCain, but you have chosen not to you, Sir, have helped Osama bin Laden stay free.

    [keep building here; use the irate head shake, and a bit of spittle wouldn't hurt either]

    Free to inspire and supervise the terrorists. Free to plan or execute attacks here.

    [scream; turn it up to 11]

    You, Sir, are blackmailing some portion of the American electorate into voting for your party, by promising to help in the capture of bin Laden only if you are made president!

    [ok back off a bit; look down, and use the voice of disgust]

    I'd rather win an election than catch bin Laden! No more cynical calculation has ever been made in this nation's history, Sir. If you lose the election, Senator, are you not going to tell the President-Elect?

    Are you intending to keep this a secret until the next election and your party's next nominee?

    [now crank it up again; this is the personal attack/name calling portion and we have to sell it to the Kossacks]

    Senator, as you and your Republicans shed your phony, crocodile, opportunistic tears tomorrow on 9/11 TM, in front of the utterly disingenuous banner "Country First," the fact is, you have shown that it is John McCain first, and the country last.

    The fact is, Sir, by holding out on your secret plan to catch bin Laden by searing those images into our collective wounded American psyche at your nomination last week, terrorists are not what you, John McCain, fight. Terrorists are what you, John McCain, use.

    [look down and to the left; use the voice of loathing]

    Good night and good luck.

    What a douchebag. The "I know how to capture Ben Laden" talk is now a "secret plan" McCain is using to "blackmail" the American electorate??? Does he honestly believe that??? What world does Olbermann live on?

    What McCain is clearly saying is as Commander in Chief he will use our military assets in ways different than Obama or even Bush. It's merely an expression of his own confidence in the way he will prosecute the war on terror, not necessarily some tactical move only he knows about and refuses to tell anyone. Only a world-class ideologue would interpret McCain's words any other way.

    Poor Fat Ass... He did not stick the landing.

    Even Olby knows now, that Obama is in Big trouble.

    HA HA HA

    ITEM 1) Keith opens the show with yet another example of PROJECTION…I guess it’s appropriate Dr. Keith's doctorate is this particular field of study.

    ITEM 2) Mini-Me (AKA: Richard Wolfe) tells Keith that the medaa (in relation to Palin) needs to start “looking at itself”. Am I the only one who sees the delicious irony in this or what?

    ITEM 3) Trooper-gate, well…I guess if my brother-in-law had tasered my niece or nephew, had made repeated threats against my family and myself, and driven drunk, posing a threat to the people who would become and are my constituents, I might have been a bit heavy handed as well….

    But all in all, I think we need to get some more facts….and so do YOU Keith, so let’s just wait and see what the specially convened panel comes up with.

    ITEM 4) Yes Palin did stop the bridge to know where….
    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB122100927525717663.html?mod=googlenews_wsj
    But KO, you should drop this one right now….cuz if you and other MSM types keep it in the news, were going to have a new “swift boat slogan”:

    Obama and Biden voted FOR the bridge before Palin voted AGAINST it.

    ITEM 5) OYY…do I need to send you some more ear wax cleaner? Palin NEVER said she SOLD the plane on ebay, only that she put it ON ebay for sale, and she did. It was ultimately sold through a broker. But Keith, don’t you think the more salient point should be that she DID INDEED sell the plane because it was an unneeded extravagance.

    I know that subtleties such as these are too deep for you to grasp….but next time your in doubt, ask Tom Brokaw….or maybe Mini Me…he did have a point in ITEM 2, that seems to have escaped you not more than ten minutes after he made it.

    You forgot to take you ADD meds again….didn’t you?

    ITEM 6) You can take a political hack like Keith Olbermann a put LIPSTICK on him, but you’ll still have a political hack.

    Ps….did you just show pictures of 9/11 to shame McCain for showing pictures of 9/11? Just wondering?

    Just spittballing here, but I wonder if there is significance behind the fact that there was no diary or comment today pimping the SEK over at the NBC News Blog, oops, I mean KOS (sorry forgot to use the "official" name).

    I still think that right in the middle of that diatribe at the end some spittle came right out of my TV and landed on me. Going to have to do one of those Howard Hughes cleansing things.

    OMG he's fooking crazy.

    He blames the Rep for making 9/11 a TM? Look in the mirror, he's making it a TM. He himself just branded it. He's using it for propaganda. He's exploiting the dead. Why? Because he's trying to convince that anyone who shows 9/11 footage is apparently using it for political needs. But its bullocks.

    If the Dems would've showed a 9/11 tribute Bathtub Boy would've done a complete 180. He would've said how we all needed to be reminded of that tragic day, how compassionate we all were in that time, and how we should never forget.

    But now KO has reduced 9/11 to a marketing ploy, a parlor trick to "terrify" people. The very same thing he's accusing Rep of doing, he himself is made guilty of. He's the one making an issue of it, he's exploiting the dead, and he's making accusations using 9/11 as his pedestal.

    9/11 means something to everyone. To me and a lot of people its a reminder that no matter the odds, our great country "This Cadillac of Nations", can come together and leave our differences behind.

    To KO, its a way to boost ratings and further his agenda by publicly denouncing anyone who shows, mentions, or implies it.

    So in that, Bathtub Boy should have The History Channel as WPitW tomorrow, cause they're obviously in tank of McCain since they'll be having 9/11 programming all day.

    And I've already seen these docs, and they are far more graphic than anything that was shown at the RNC.

    But obviously KO doesn't watch TV, or go to other websites besides KOS, cause he's still hanging on to that "Selling the plane on eBay" story.

    Why isn't National Geographic WPITW since they played the 9/11 documentary again on Sunday. In their documentary they actually show people jumping from the World Trade Center. Isn't that exploiting 9/11 for ratings Olby? Why does Olby want to white wash 9/11? Because it doesn't help the Obamanation ticket?

    This would be funny if it wasn't so sad. The Tax Cheat mentioned a "A fleeting image of what might have been a victim leaping to his death from a thousand feet up." And yet they had to do a closeup to show that image (which was extremely fuzzy and could have been anything). I saw the tribute and didn't see anyone jumping from buildings and I doubt if anyone else did either. But thanks, Keith, for pointing that out. Very sensitive of you.

    Okay folks, I have a new Bathtub boy profile on myspace... As I said a bit ago, my profile dedicated to the tax cheat was deleted along with all the other ones that didn't tow the line. We'll see how long this one lasts...

    Also, I noticed something interesting... On MSDNC's myspace profile I couldn't find any mention of a Keith or of an Olbermann. Now this is interesting because back when I had my first profile of him I knew who to friend request by searching for people who were just wondering and complaining why KeithO didn't have a profile. Now, not one single mention of the fat one. Why I wonder?

    Well, either way, here is an incomplete profile for now... If you have suggestions message me or friend request me... And as always, I think OW for the help...

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=412638228

    This from one who criticizes another for not making a "call for unity."

    This from one who accuses another of "the utter politicizing of a day that should be sacrosanct to all of us."

    This from one who charges another with " to some degree great or small aiding and abetting Osama bin Laden" and with "blackmailing some portion of the American electorate" by "holding out on your secret plan to catch bin Laden," "the world's most hated man."

    This from the self-proclaimed "journalist" who says he loves Sarah Palin:

    "To open again the horrible wounds, to brand the skin of this nation with the message --AS HATEFUL AS THE TERRORISTS' OWN, that you must vote Republican or this will happen again and you will die."

    I love the 1st Amendment. I took an oath to defend it and served to protect it.

    In an attempt to destroy the Republican nominee for President of the United States and in the process engage in a despicable display of self-aggrandizement, you are the one who is aiding and abetting our enemies.

    Good night and good riddance.

    elmer r olberfudd...

    we wouldnt expect anything else from you

    your a classic

    keep on keeping on

    Speshel Komment sole truth:

    "This is supposed to be a day of remembrance. Remembrance of the attack, remembrance of the national unity which followed it. Most important of all, remembrance of the victims [changed "dead" to "victims"]

    I recall Mr. Giuliani saying the words, "nine eleven" ONCE in his speech last Weds.....He said a MORE IMORTANT phrase.....ISLAMIC TERRORISM.....And that's the whole point....That is the difference between how the dote Olbermann thinks and how responsible adults preparing to try to keep our world safe from extemism think....

    Olbermann sees EVERYTHING through a defensive partisan lens. This is yet another flaw I now see in this sick, sick person. He is INCAPABLE of listening to anyone sans a (D) by their name without being totally cynical and distrustful.

    The point of showing the 1979 hostages was to point out that this is where it all started for America...In regards to the impact islamic jihadists had on our people, that crisis is the touchstone. Before, it was not so close to home....it was the Israelis being killed, terrorized, maimed...not Americans.....

    That was the whole point of the tribute....to make clear that the mistakes AMERICA (not just dems, liberals, Keith Olbermann) but we all should not forget the powerful force that caused 9/11....ISLAMIC TERRORISM.....EXTEMIST ISLAMIC DEPOTISM!

    That is what I feel is missing in the thought processes of the left of our country. 9/11 stops at 9/11....it does not go deeper into why it occurred....in fact some on the left actually think America is at fault for 9/11....WRONG! Those hijakers, murderers, were poisoned by the extreme form of Islam that allows one to kill innocent civilians as a part of a tactic to terrorize people. This was the same extremism that The Taliban held.....this was the same extremism that Saddam Hussein held.....this IS the same extremism that OBL holds.....this IS the same extremism that the current leadership in Iran holds......this is the same extremism that the current leadership of Syria and their terrorist allies in Lebanon & in the Palastinian Authority held territories hold....It is a complicated and important problem all people yearning for freedom face. For the democrats, and Olbermann, it seems like that is not true.

    Sorry Olbermann....you are dead wrong and, thankfully, part of a radical minority in our country. However, this wrong thinking is having a huge political influence on the democratic party and forced them into a wrong position on the Iraq War, anti-terrorism security measures and now in regards to Iranian terrorism.

    The radical anti-America left minority even forced the party to nominate, by one of the slimest of margins, the weaker candidate for President. Hillary Clinton, although part of those who changed their position on Iraq, at least had much more experience than Obama....But now....well.....perhaps she will still be the VP nominee......

    Olbermann is lost....he is done.....he is a part of a very fringe part of the political landscape populated by conspiracy theorists and paranoids.

    Good night and good luck, Olbermann!

    time for olberman to put away the phony outrage and drop the act

    there are no oscars for infomercials

    Hillary as Obama's vp.......look out for it folks......

    "Joe Biden to be withdrawn as Democratic VP candidate before 2008 presidential election"

    This is a new trade on InTrade, replacing the odds of Palin dropping out.....

    http://tinyurl.com/yoxcej

    I think this is a very good possibility especially if Obama continues to tank.

    What a rollercoaster ride.


    I saw an eagle fly...
    ...lookin' south
    toward the mountains
    'bout nine in the morning
    Early September day
    Clear
    No clouds

    I saw an eagle fly...
    ...effortlessly
    riding the currents
    Soaring above all
    Majestic
    Supreme

    I saw an eagle fly...
    ...and that eagle
    looked a lot like 2,996 souls

    On this 7th anniversary of 9/11, I would like to remind the radical left of this country what one of them said about how we all should judge President Bush in regard to protecting us from another Al Queda attack:

    "A year after the 9/11 attack, The New York Times' Frank Rich was carping about Bush's national security plans, saying we could judge Bush's war on terror by whether there was a major al-Qaida attack in 2003, which -- according to Rich -- would have been on al-Qaida's normal schedule.

    "Rich wrote: 'Since major al-Qaida attacks are planned well in advance and have historically been separated by intervals of 12 to 24 months, we will find out how much we've been distracted soon enough.' ('Never Forget What?' New York Times, Sept. 14, 2002.)

    "There wasn't a major al-Qaida attack in 2003. Nor in 2004, 2005, 2006 or 2007. Manifestly, liberals thought there would be: They announced a standard of success that they expected Bush to fail."

    Ms. Coulter has it right today. The leftwing of our country is entitled to their opinions and have every right to express them. This is what makes America great. However, the rest of us have a right to also speak out against their lies, hatred and vitriol. 9/11 is a time to remember that day in 2001, but we also have to remember what has occurred since then (A WHAT HAS NOT) and that puts it all in perspective.

    I appreciate the great job our volunteer armed forces and all government agents have done to keep us from having to remember another terrorist attack. President George W. Bush is included in that "thank you," with great enthusiasm.

    Cee...I appreciate the great job our volunteer armed forces and all government agents have done to keep us from having to remember another terrorist attack. President George W. Bush is included in that "thank you," with great enthusiasm.

    Amen....

    Thanks to a suggestion by one of the people commenting on NewsBusters, I now believe that I have some real insight into the motivation of KO.

    Reprinted below is the Code of Ethics from the Society of Professional Journalists (http://www.spj.org/ethicscode.asp). What Keith is trying to do is to get into the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest number of ethical violations in history. At last count, he has just moved into third place behind Hitler and the Devil.

    Preamble
    Members of the Society of Professional Journalists believe that public enlightenment is the forerunner of justice and the foundation of democracy. The duty of the journalist is to further those ends by seeking truth and providing a fair and comprehensive account of events and issues. Conscientious journalists from all media and specialties strive to serve the public with thoroughness and honesty. Professional integrity is the cornerstone of a journalist's credibility. Members of the Society share a dedication to ethical behavior and adopt this code to declare the Society's principles and standards of practice.

    Seek Truth and Report It
    Journalists should be honest, fair and courageous in gathering, reporting and interpreting information.

    Journalists should:

    — Test the accuracy of information from all sources and exercise care to avoid inadvertent error. Deliberate distortion is never permissible.
    — Diligently seek out subjects of news stories to give them the opportunity to respond to allegations of wrongdoing.
    — Identify sources whenever feasible. The public is entitled to as much information as possible on sources' reliability.
    — Always question sources’ motives before promising anonymity. Clarify conditions attached to any promise made in exchange for information. Keep promises.
    — Make certain that headlines, news teases and promotional material, photos, video, audio, graphics, sound bites and quotations do not misrepresent. They should not oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.
    — Never distort the content of news photos or video. Image enhancement for technical clarity is always permissible. Label montages and photo illustrations.
    — Avoid misleading re-enactments or staged news events. If re-enactment is necessary to tell a story, label it.
    — Avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information except when traditional open methods will not yield information vital to the public. Use of such methods should be explained as part of the story
    — Never plagiarize.
    — Tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience boldly, even when it is unpopular to do so.
    — Examine their own cultural values and avoid imposing those values on others.
    — Avoid stereotyping by race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, geography, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or social status.
    — Support the open exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.
    — Give voice to the voiceless; official and unofficial sources of information can be equally valid.
    — Distinguish between advocacy and news reporting. Analysis and commentary should be labeled and not misrepresent fact or context.
    — Distinguish news from advertising and shun hybrids that blur the lines between the two.
    — Recognize a special obligation to ensure that the public's business is conducted in the open and that government records are open to inspection.

    Minimize Harm
    Ethical journalists treat sources, subjects and colleagues as human beings deserving of respect.

    Journalists should:

    — Show compassion for those who may be affected adversely by news coverage. Use special sensitivity when dealing with children and inexperienced sources or subjects.
    — Be sensitive when seeking or using interviews or photographs of those affected by tragedy or grief.
    — Recognize that gathering and reporting information may cause harm or discomfort. Pursuit of the news is not a license for arrogance.
    — Recognize that private people have a greater right to control information about themselves than do public officials and others who seek power, influence or attention. Only an overriding public need can justify intrusion into anyone’s privacy.
    — Show good taste. Avoid pandering to lurid curiosity.
    — Be cautious about identifying juvenile suspects or victims of sex crimes.
    — Be judicious about naming criminal suspects before the formal filing of charges.
    — Balance a criminal suspect’s fair trial rights with the public’s right to be informed.

    Act Independently
    Journalists should be free of obligation to any interest other than the public's right to know.

    Journalists should:

    —Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
    — Remain free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
    — Refuse gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shun secondary employment, political involvement, public office and service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.
    — Disclose unavoidable conflicts.
    — Be vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable.
    — Deny favored treatment to advertisers and special interests and resist their pressure to influence news coverage.
    — Be wary of sources offering information for favors or money; avoid bidding for news.

    Be Accountable
    Journalists are accountable to their readers, listeners, viewers and each other.

    Journalists should:

    — Clarify and explain news coverage and invite dialogue with the public over journalistic conduct.
    — Encourage the public to voice grievances against the news media.
    — Admit mistakes and correct them promptly.
    — Expose unethical practices of journalists and the news media.
    — Abide by the same high standards to which they hold others.

    olberwoman is not a professional nor a journalist so a code of ethics does not apply to him

    he is more like morton downey jr. jerry springer and maury povich

    maddow too


    By EdwardROlbermanAuthor Profile Page on September 12, 2008 10:15 AM

    and Springer get awesome rating just like fixed news right? So I will call Fox News the Jerry Springer of Cable News.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Well, by that logic, you could call Obama the Jerry Springer of Candidates, as long as his poll numbers are high.

    You betcha, Ed.

    There you have it folks, Ed thinks FNC is the Jerry Springer of Cable Channels and Obama is the Jerry Springer of Candidates...

    Fair and balanced.... :D

    and olberwoman is still a hack


    By EdwardROlbermanAuthor Profile Page on September 12, 2008 11:32 AM

    Nice Spin, Jerry Springer show has no educational value, just like Fox news but Springer himself(was Mayor of Cincinnati) Ie would be a better President than McLame. But nice try anyway.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Not at all, Ed.

    If you argue that Obama is comparable to the former pol Jerry Springer, who are we to argue...

    Governor Judas?

    Heck, man, you really should probably oughta give up with the, "WOW, nice comeback" comebacks.

    Judas was a Jewish follower of Christ until he discovered Christ was not a revolutionary intending to violently overthrow the Roman occupiers. Judas decided to betray Christ to The Temple priest because of this.

    I think you mean Pilate, Ed, the Roman governor who sentenced Christ to Roman crucifiction. He was the governor of Palastine at the time.

    Jesus did not organize any communities. He never petitioned the government for welfare checks, he never registered anyone to vote, nor did he organize protests or marches. He performed miracles, told parables, taught from the Torah, debated scripture, was killed for a crime he did not commit, rose from the dead and then ascended into heaven.

    No one=Jesus.

    Palin=politician
    Obama=politician

    olberman=hack

    Oh by the way EdROlby:
    Springer Was the mayor of Cincinnati, but got kicked out for paying a prostitute with a personel check, now how stupid is that? Springer is the laughing stock of Cincinnati and will never show his face around here ever again. So your analogy of Obama being the equal to springer must be really easy for you to live with. Also, how do you know so much about all these daytime tv shows? You must be one of those unemployed, take from the rich man, stay at home watchin springer, maury, peoples court, FOX & FRIENDS etc.etc. welfare recipients?
    EdwardROlby, you are way out of this league here and getting trownched with each and every comment you leave. I suggest you go back to KOS kids and any of your other liberal sites you blog with and start making yourself happy again because with ALL of the recent polls showing McCain Palin ahead in this race and the implossion over at msnbc with keith the klown being DEMOTED and all, you will be much happier.
    Good night and good luck ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    a. Beat the spread, b. hit the over & under and c. nailed the trifecta:

    a. Oh yes but the surge is working, Nice comeback. Nice Spin

    b. and whats wrong with prostitutes and Springer. get awesome rating.

    c. Do you all realize Jesus was a Community Organizer
    And Judas well he was a Governor
    Palin=Judas
    Obama=jesus

    Governor Judas, Obama capitalized, jesus lower case
