    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 26, 2008
    Debate Night Open Thread!


    Nobody wants to bother with the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann on a Big Night like this. So instead of a recappers' thread, here's a debate night open thread. Festivities begin at 9:00 pm Eastern, but of course there will be contributions beamed in from OlbyPlanet. In fact, two separate Hours of Spin, one before and one after the debate.

    For the main event, you'll have the Wolf pack on CNN, Brit and the gang on Fixed News [Ding!], and MSNBC? Well, since MSLSD has a new policy against using its partisan web-spinners as political anchors, David Gregory (now that's really a change!) will do the honors for them. Yes, only real reporters anchor political events on A-Mess-NBC. Except when they let a failed Err America comedian anchor them, that is. Good ol' Madcow. She's no journalist, but she does play one on tv.

    So here's your open thread for tonight's fun and games. If you do happen to watch MSDNC, feel free to post any Oralmann howlers/whoppers/lies you catch. Maybe you'll catch him popping a vein over MSNBC caving in to pressure from the eeevil Bill O'Reilly. Oh wait, Bathtub Boy never criticizes his corporate masters (that's why his manhood quotient is always in negative terrority). So much for that.

    Tonight, we won't blame you if you pass up Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann in favor of real journalism, fair and balanced. Whatever channel you choose, this thread is your water cooler for The Big Night. Comments are open!

    Why is Barry letting his hair go gray? Is the campaign aging him quickly (to which Olby can relate) or is he trying to appear like he is an elder statesman as opposed to a junior senator?

    Exchange student Wolffeman complains about pre-debate spin. Har! Olby asks if McCain blinked or is playing chicken by himself by going to the debate without a bailout deal in place. Wolffie says he blinked and has not lived up to his own standards. Flip-flop. Ding! General and utter confusion, he opines. Did McCain help or hinder? Is anyone suggesting "in all seriousness" that McCain helped, simpered Olby? You can guess the Wolffeman's retort.

    Robert Gibbs, Obama tank dweller, piles on. Yawn.

    The Orange One again blames the breakdown in the bailout talks and the financial meltdown on McCain. Olby, you bore me. Olby asks Butchie Madcow how much damage McCain has done to himself (huh?). She (?) claims McCain is temperamental, panicky and erratic. Obviously, Butchie has her (?) list of Barry talking points handy.

    Stop the DVR! Olby claims McCain has not, as a leader, told us where he stands on the bailout issue. Olby: The sissypants Dems will not vote to approve their socialist bailout because they do not want to take sole responsibility for their actions or be on record as aligning with Pres. George Bush. Who does not want to lead? So many Olbylies, so little time.

    I gave up on the debate after a half hour. It was giving me a headache.

    Plus, I realized it's TWO HOURS LONG!

    It as nice to finally have a real debate about real more "lipstick" more more judging candidates using the words of more stunts.

    Once again Olberdouche focuses on the parenthetical. Keith bashes McCain for stumbling over Achmadinijad's name, yet Obama called McCain "Jim" and "Tom" DURING THE DEBATE!

    obama: "You're right, John!"

    12 times!!!!!

    He went to which law school?


    Also, I caught about 10 seconds of the orange faced hack before the debate where McCain slaughtered nobama. Anyone who takes that orange faced prick serious should not be allowed to vote. Plain and simple. What an asshat!

    John McCain clearly won the debate
    Any moron could see that... but wait
    The hackneyed spinner
    Said Barry's the winner
    Because a moron and Keith equate

    Yes folks, it's pretty sad when it's suppose to be a debate but all Obama could come up with was "Yep, your right John.
    Obama needs to drop out now while he's ahead. OsamaObama should go back to D.C. and bitchslap Barney Frank for being such a hairlip idiot. The Democratic party is imploding before our very eyes. But that's ok, people like mikeH will still coddle them and condone their misgivings.

    Obama doesn't need any spin doctors for his debates he has olby. It would help though if somebody actually watched MSDNC.

    "By MikeH on September 26, 2008 11:41 PM

    I agree more he's too more he had more she should have had an abortion instead of having a child with downs more her husband is obviously doing the kids because he's from more.. Oh wait, actually they are still saying all those things. Oh darn, I guess we're back to the fake debate about fake issues again.

    Obama has a whole legion of spin doctors called the mainstream media...olbermann is just the most devoted... you couldn't pay for a better spin job

    Did anyone see where the MSNBC "who won the debate" poll was made up from only 20% americans and at the bottom of the long list of countries was 22% "other countries" Other countries would be less well known than Algeria.

    Oh McCain Oh McCain, why the hell dont you look at Obama when he debates you.
    You look weak man when you do that.

    Still think McCain won though./

    kb, thanks for the link. I never even thought of that as a possibility.

    Only MSNBC would do something like that without making any effort to compensate for such a figure. Some may be expatriates but I would be surprised if it were more than 50%.

    yeah i thought it did look really bad that mccain didn't look at obama....i don't like obama at all, but i have to say that was not good...i did like his arguments and examples of obama's lack of "change" so to speak

    I just came across this at News Busters and it almost took my breath away for its sheer asinine idiocy:

    Chicago Tribune Writer Finds Cause for Possible Obama Loss: Elderly Frontal Lobe Prejudice

    How many excuses have they come up with so far to blame everyone but Obama if he loses come November?

    This is the last straw, frontal lobe atrophy. This people don't suffer from BDS and PDS.

    They are simply Deranged!

    That's an interesting article. Thanks Grammie.

    I find it interesting, however, that the article makes no mention of the fact that the same frontal lobe that does indeed recede with age also does not fully form until the mid 20's.

    Maybe that's why so many young people vote Obama. It is because their frontal lobe has not fully formed and they cannot control their prejudice against older individuals.

    I think the atrophy of the frontal lobe leading to prejudice against the will could be shortened to the acronym of PAW.

    Call it Paw-Paw Syndrome.. :D

    (They can work up articles about this tripe, they just can't investigate the Obama campaign's recruiting of a Missouri sheriff and prosecutor for a "truth squad" to go after dissenters.)

    yeah, what is up with that? how can obama get away with going after people just because they disagree with him...sounds a lot like ilinksi-style tactics to me...Commubama

    dfunk55, Cecelia raised my interest in the Truth Squads also so I googled "Obama truth squad" and found this at News Busters:

    Sounds like WPiTW fodder to me, NOT!

    The first page of links did not have one link to any MSM outlet.

    Great article Grammie, indeed WPiTW if this was a real show that would actually use that segment to point out real problems and not just republicans.

    This isn't the first I've heard of this either...On Mark Levin's show he brought up the Obama's attempt to silence a critic by getting the IRS involved, and nobody seems to care. I like to think that out of all of the media outlets that someone would look past their own agenda, but each day i am reminded otherwise. its really sickening and making me very cynical. i don't understand how a whole industry can get away with this. oh wait, i know...because they say their objective, and in order to get any news you HAVE to watch them. i just wish their was news completely FOX news bias, no MSNBC bias, just news...i think it can be entertaining w/o commentary...with this sort of media you get one channel calling the other a liar and vice versa to the point you can't watch either of them b/c you have no idea who is telling the truth...its a shame
