    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    Countdown: Thursday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for The Hour of Spin. It falls on you--the clear-thinking readers of Olbermann Watch--to document Keith Oralmann's diseased rantings for posterity. Comments are open!

    The viewers are tired of Keith's schtick
    CNN or FoxNews is their pick
    Career circling the drain
    Keith's completely inane
    His bias has made everyone sick

    This is rich! Known misogynist/borderline pedophile Olbermann is bringing in ultra-loon Jeanine Garafalo to ridicule Rush Limbaugh and his relationship with....WOMEN! Buckle up peeps.

    Another 3rd place finish for Keith in his beloved Key Demo. I wonder how long it will take for Keith to start down playing the key demo's importance. The Grim Reaper is comming for Keith career.

    What has Rush Limbaugh's relationship with women have to do with A Countdown To the Day's Top News Stories in which, and I quote from my Fios guide, Keith offers "candid interviews with the top" are you ready for this "NEWSMAKERS".

    When was the last time KO had anyone on who was anything more than a talking head or such like who agrees with KO.

    If anyone watches that segment and wants to share I would appreciate it. I can't bear KO. KO and Garafalo (?) together? No way.

    A few things I saw tonight:
    As ObserverDan mentioned,
    Olverpaid showing a video of Rush Limbaugh and claiming that Rush complained women don't like him. Then with Garafalo. According to Garafalo, Rush is a narcissist and self-loathing, who only attracts women like Squeaky fromm and eva braun. BTW she looked horrible, no sleeve dress showing off her goofy tattoos. Did she deliberately not wear makeup to try to look so ugly. I'm so glad that this breaking news was reported because it isn't like there's rising unemployment, people losing their homes or something more important.

    Still Bushed: Bush still responsible for Katrina money not being spent a month after he's gone, and discrepancies with Anthrax attacks suspect = Bush's fault by some logic.

    O'Reilly attack because O'Reilly and Miller said Obama would have voted against prop. 8 in Cal in November. Keithy claiming Obama wouldn't.

    Hannity was WPITW because someone put a poll on Hannity's site about what kind of revolution should there be and 20 people voted on it.
    Aisha Tyler hawking her DVD for the Jindal bashing segment at the end.

    Yes that's right, Slobbermann and Garafalo on the same set. She looked like some skinny, tattooed, street walkin whore from Hollywood BLVD. And where does fat ass come off asking some two bit washed up SNL/AirheadAmerica radio wanna be, to give the reasons and answers to what's up with Rush vs women? Again, bathtub boy is running out of current events and is looking for anything he can get his hands on to go after Rush, Hannity, Beck and so on. Not much longer folks, I hear the drain a flowin.

    Just got a call from San Diego Ca. Word is that a massive tea party is brewin.
    This new president is on his way out and the sooner the better. Recall, Recall, Recall.

    -- I can't bear KO. KO and Garafalo (?) together? --

    Grammie, it was painful to watch. She was 'analyzing' Limbaugh with pycho babble. A headcase like her commenting on someone else? Another unintentional Olverpaid funny!
    If you're gonna have a woman on to ridicule Limbaugh because women don't like him, have a woman on that is actually attractive. And I'm not talking about some gorgeous model, just a woman that actually tries to look attractive before coming on the show. Garafalo had some strapless garbage bag on showing off her tattoos, she looked like a Rocky Horror show reject. A dehydrated bag lady with cancer would have been an improvement over her.

    The Garofalo diatribe against Limbaugh was easily the longest segment of the nite. I learned that "there is something wrong" with all members of Republican party, that "they all suffer from Stockholm syndrome." I also learned that Ms. Garofalo has a mastery of psych 101 terminology and is thusly authorized to undertake an on-air psychiatric assessment of Mr. Limbaugh. Keith agreed with everything she said and giggled.

    Then, as noted by liontooth, Olbermann named O'reilly and Dennis Miller as Worst Person nominees for wrongfully alleging that Obama would've voted for Prop 8 in CA by citing some 2007 Obama quote in he (Obama) stated that he thought that the state constitution should not be amended. Of course, Olbermann conveniently omitted the fact that Mr. Obama's opposition to gay marriage is well known, and that the logical assumption posed by O'reilly and Miller follows a rational trajectory found in honest, legitimate punditry. But thats how Olbermann operates: semantics and deception.

    Then he attacked Sean Hannity, his top Worst Person for the night, for some guy's post on the Hannity.com forums about what kind of revolution appeals most to forum-goers. How this reflects on Hannity in any way is beyond me. But Keith's gotta take anything he can get when hes gettin stomped in the ratings war.

    On a final note, I am a new user, and tune into Countdown occasionally if only to remind myself that the liberal perpetuated public perception of Fox as "faux" is laughably off-base, especially compared to the other cable news outlets (MSNBC in particular). But from these occasional viewings its become quite clear that Olbermann is a very hateful person, and I say this not because I disagree with his politics but rather because his show is built on ad hominem attacks of little substance. Worse yet, he's not funny and his I-talk-fast-and-am-also-an-intellectual schtick is nowhere near as endearing as he undoubtedly thinks it is. His show is torture. Why do I torture myself?

    And here's the thread on Hannity.com forums, neither written by Mr. Hannity nor likely of his knowledge, yet which still warrants the label of Worst Person in the World: http://forums.hannity.com/showthread.php?t=1326121

    -- And where does fat ass come off asking some two bit washed up SNL/AirheadAmerica radio wanna be, to give the reasons and answers to what's up with Rush vs women? --

    The basis of the story was Rush Limbaugh read a poll on his show that said women find him favorable something like 40% where among men it's alot higher. OlberGoebbels twisted that into women not finding Rush attractive.

    SoCal, did you notice Olverpaid introduced her as a political activist or some BS. I completely forgot about her loser radio show. Geez, I wonder why that wouldn't be mentioned when your discussing the King of talk radio? Everything Olberdouche touches unintentionally turns to comedy gold.

    At the very beginning, I thought I heard Crazy Legs refer to the parody product "Obama Waffles" as racist. From the guy who used Roscoe "Chicken and Waffles" Parrish? Maybe I heard wrong. :)

    #2: The Media Matters Minute. Worse was Another O'Reilly Attack...featuring Dennis Miller. Blue blog source: Media Matters. http://mediamatters.org/items/200902260001
    Original Miller Time video: http://tinyurl.com/ae7lw8


    Worser was some guy I've never heard of. Likely blue blog source: Truthdig. http://tinyurl.com/aumeyf

    Worst was Sean Hannity (again?). Blue blog source: Levellers, which I've also never heard of, but they're at the top of my Google search for ""sean hannity" revolution poll". http://levellers.wordpress.com/2009/02/26/sean-hannity-advocates-treason/

    As usual, I didn't bother to watch. I only skimmed through the video with the sound muted. How bad was the dual O'Reilly/Miller Attack?

    Yeah Grammie I often wondered that " Top Newsmakers " part of CD's discription on my guide as well. In the Olbyverse Top Newsmakers are the same group of people who agree with him.

    Also Bill-O was reminded during his mail segment of Obama's stance on Prop 8. But yes, Olbermann failed to say Obama's stance on Prop 8 and Gay Marriage are two different things. He supported not changing the admendment, but is against Prop 8. Flip flopper.

    Also no hour of spin for me tonight, Burn Notice is on, but if they spent all time talking about Rush's love life then I'm not missing anything.

    But yeah, sounds like he's running out of exclusives for Still Bushed. Must have something to do with the fact it isn't 2008 anymore.

    Thanks to you all. I just knew they were going to be a match made in the deepest bowels of hell. I almost feel like I could have been there but without the agony involved.

    I put this up a few weeks ago but for anyone who might have missed it I think it is worth repeating:

    "Countdown is starting to bug me

    Postby Michael on Thu Feb 12, 2009 9:16 am
    I am really seeing a need for a format change at Countdown.

    He just can't keep doing "Bushed" all the way through the Obama administration, and the only way he can keep talking about politics that don't matter for an hour a day is making up these bogeymen--giving tons of free airtime to Republicans and Rush Limbaugh, who really should be ignored--at least on Countdown.

    The stimulus package was going to pass--an analysis of what was going in and out would have been useful, but the covereage we got wasn't... just stomach turning video of frothy mouthed Republicans. I am so sick of Bill O'Reilly gossip--I really don't care!

    Just give me some information that is useful, or tell me about the fires in Australia, or some new solar plant, or a new hybrid car--give me something but sleezebucket politicians! Give me something I CAN talk about tomorrow, not just the same show over and over!!!

    i am just sensing the show is in a giant, formulaic, rut.

    I have to watch them a day or more delayed from O.O. so I am writing this after Feb 10's -- and it seemed like he was mentioning Bill O'Reilly thoughout the whole show.

    The Rut:

    5. What did Obama Do Today.

    4. What did the GOP or Rush Limbaugh do Today?

    3. Bushed

    2. What did Bill O'Reilly do today?

    1. Fluff--mainly "octomom", but if someone makes fun of O'Reilly, and there is video, there it is.

    Keith is still my man, but that is phoning it in."

    There was quite a bit of agreement. I found that a bit surprising. Also, the thread has remained somewhat active.

    If this is how his squealing and fainting bobby soxers are reacting I'm not surprised that he seems to be loosing ground rather steadily.

    Just for you Liontooth: I am very familiar with fat asses talking point in regards to Rush. I listened to Rush on Wednesday when he had women call in to give him their assessments on him. It would be one thing for slobbermann to ask Dr. Ruth for an analysis of Rush, but to ask and put some washed up hack on tv? that was pure suicide for both us and them. I mean, this Garafalo slut almost made me puke just looking at my tv monitor. I remember hearing her when she was on morning drive in Cincinnati on AirheadAmerica and back then, I wanted to puke at what she was spewing. Although, her radical leftist ways are not that far from bathtub boys, I think that's where he got his from.

    Anyway, back to researching this up and coming tea party that is gonna go on across America.

    Speaking of suicide, as in "career suicide," Aisha Tyler did just that tonight. I don't like her anymore. "Countdown": where careers go to die.

    Gotta luv Keith for commending the Politico guy for his professional apology.

    Keith, the master of professionally handled apologies.

    I see in the commentary tonight a lot of reference to the quality of his guests. Seems like that has been more and more noticeable since the RNC convention miss. Haven't even seen him and Chrissy together unless it is the aftermath of something like the This is not a State of the Union address thing. Never having been a Fox News viewer and being a bit worn out by Imus, I usually watch Morning Joe or Mike and Mike in the A.M. Joe and Mika really have a generally quality line-up of guests. Both sides of the aisle. Even Chrissy comes on there on occasion. Must have really pissed KO off when he saw that Joe was in the house during the This is not a State of the Union address. All those verbal BJs he gave Obama and who gets a Uecker seat live and in person? Scarborough. Man that must rub his fat ass big time.

    My gosh, I just watched the Garafalo segment. Oy.

    So...Garafalo comparing the women "attracted" by Rush to Squeeky Fromm and Eva Braunn, that means that Rush is both Charles Manson and Adolf Hitler. I thought that type of demonization wasn't allowed?

    Conservatism today = Authoritariansim.

    There is something wrong with anyone who supports the Republican party...so roughly half of all Americans (and more if you base it on issue positioning) are psychologically impaired?

    Somewhat reminscent of Bill Maher's ravings...except Maher is prettier.

    Echoing some of the comments above...on a day with so much weighty stuff (political, economic, national security) to discuss, the Countdown of the Top Issues of teh day include...

    1. The Republican opposition strategy to the budget
    2. The CPAC convention
    3. Hack psychobabble analysis of the radio talk personality
    4. A poll someone posted on Hannity's website that isn't any worse than most of the stuff on certain unnamed blue blogs
    5. A comedian's appraisal of the Republican response to the non-SOTU (yes, absolutely, Jindal is an insult to pages everywhere)

    Wow, what a stunning lineup of top stories and newsmakers.

    How does this show stay on the air?

    -- Speaking of suicide, as in "career suicide," Aisha Tyler did just that tonight. --

    Yeah Mike, that whole segment was bizarre. I'm guessing that her new DVD is owned and/or distributed by a NBC/GE subsidiary and it was a corporate scheduled thing.

    -- Gotta luv Keith for commending the Politico guy for his professional apology. --

    Did anyone else notice how Olverpaid punked himself? When Olberdork read the apology, he read where the politico guy said, "I only had it up for a few minutes and then changed it" Yesterday the fraud claimed it was up there until Wednesday (MANY hours not minutes) .

    SoCalRightist: Those tattoos. Is she an Angelina Joline wanna be now? LOL

    And Katy Turic, I love your poems.

    It was worse than I predicted. As everyone is noting, the Garafalo segment was an exercise in hate and slime rarely seen on Cable News Hours. Keith sat there chuckling and agreeing as Garafalo unleashed some of the most vile clap-trap I've ever heard. Rush is a narcsissist self loather, among other things. He will never ' heal'. All Women drawn to the Republican Party are "ill". All people of color drawn to the Republican Party are "ill". The "Constitution follows the flag". ? (whatever that meant). Garafalo admitted that she, too, is a narcissist self-loather, just like Limbaugh. Garafalo was afraid she was babbling like an idiot ( a moment of clarity on her part).
    Keith, in a slip-up I'm sure, reminded Garafalo and the audience that Rush used to this gal , formerly of CNN:
    http://tinyurl.com/ahwvke

    ...Rush used to date Daryn Kagan, formerly of CNN......

    Why isn't anyone talking about that "oh God" comment that 'Olbermann' made any more?

    We moved on. Sorry to disappoint.

    Was this possibly the worst countdown ever? It's gotta make the top 5 worst at least. I didn't think it would get this bad this fast. I figured the summer would be hard of KO but at this rate and with these performanes he'll be done by summer

    I sure hope so, but I doubt it.

    "We moved on. Sorry to disappoint."

    Of COURSE you "moved on"! That was exactly my point. So many of you were happily sliming him for doing something he didn't do....but when you found out he didn't, you chose to just 'move on' instead of apologizing.

    It's called hypocrisy!

    Yes, it was a bad show. And that tattooed guest was yet another unattractive person that Keithee can't resist putting on his program begging us to turn him off in order to spare our sensibilities.

    Mike H. What do you want exactly? Olbermann is guilty of far worse so the shoe fit him as well as Matthews. That's not our problem. It's yours, as an Olbermann defender.

    "Olbermann is guilty of far worse"

    Well, waddaya know.....I predicted that the first defense would be to say that KO has "done worse". Sorry, but false accusations can't be justified by claiming the so called 'offender' has "done worse".

    He just wants to push our buttons and he's successful with some of us.

    "He just wants to push our buttons and he's successful with some of us."

    And the easiest button of all to push is your's!

    Hey MikeH, Keith is a lardass, he was shoveling in bean dip chips during that segment, clearly he couldn't have been speaking. In fact, Matthews "oh god" was probably from looking at the NYC monitor with olbs doing body shots of sour cream off Mancow.

    "Hey MikeH, Keith is a lardass"

    Is he more of a "lardass" than Rush Limbaugh?......Or is that only important if someone is a "lefty"?

    Olbs is a hefty lefty. He's gained 900lbs this year. That's why it's humorous. Rush has always been a fatass.

    "Olbs is a hefty lefty. He's gained 900 lbs. this year. That's why it's humorous. Rush has always been a fatass."

    Wow, thats amazing! 900 lbs. He carries it well.

    While you're at it, What other demographic groups would you like to trash?

    Your comments say far more about you than they do about anyone you happen to be demeaning.

    -- Mike H. What do you want exactly? --

    ObserverDan, my guess is to 'service' Olverpaid.

    "ObserverDan, my guess is to 'service' Olverpaid."

    Hey....now THAT was classy!!

    Mike didn't answer my question. It's the first and last one I'll ever ask him.
    Newsbusters has a take on the Olbermann/Garafalo segment:
    http://tinyurl.com/crc4lg

    "Mike didn't answer my question."

    From someone who failed to answer mine!

    'What do I want', you ask?.....I'm getting exactly what I want. A chance to laugh and marvel at endless and shameless hypocrisy.

    Why else would I be here?

    -- Your comments say far more about you than they do about anyone you happen to be demeaning. --

    Am I in the twilight zone? Why is it that EVERYTHING associated with OlberGoebbels becomes unintentionally comedy gold?

    "Am I in the twilight zone?".........If not, you're certainly doing a good imitation.

    "Why is it that EVERYTHING associated with OlberGoebbels becomes unintentionally comedy gold?........Comedy is in the eye of the beholder, expecially when you exist in the twilight zone.

    -- Why else would I be here? --

    Because you can't stand to see the love of your life exposed, mocked and humiliated. This is somehow a mystery?

    Evoking laughter from host Keith Olbermann, Garofalo remarked that "the type of female that does like Rush is the same type of woman that falls in love with prisoners."

    This is TOO good! Olbermann and Garofalo on the same show with her talking about what type men women prisoners go for while she looks like she got all her fashion tips and manners from Aileen Wuormos.

    Well, both olbermann and garofalo can rest easy, because if they ever were fortunate enough to go to an all mens prison, the last thing either one of them would have to worry about is being raped.

    "Because you can't stand the love of your life exposed, mocked and humiliated.".......Sorry, but my wife is safely tucked in bed while I amuse myself by laughing at your hypocrisy.

    "This is somehow a mystery?"......The only thing that remains a mystery is why someone like you would contine to obssess about someone you don't have to watch and have no hope of actually affecting.

    I'll tell you something that was painful to watch: It was watching 'the future of the Republican party', Bobby Jindal, look like Mister Rogers talking to kindergarten children the other night.

    -- my wife is safely tucked in bed --

    Wow! It's really great to see where your priorities are at. Another DNC family values success story titled, "When the obsession for Truth Justice, and the Olverpaid way creates an unsatisfied wife"

    Sorry, but attacking my wife isn't going to work out for you either.

    Yikes, I'm going to do a "madcow" one and say I'm speechless after tonight's show. Unbelievable. Garofalo looked like....might as well just be honest, "trash".

    And KO was just bathing in all this GOP hatred, course it would have to be a big ass tub for his butt to sit in.

    Great Thanks, great thanks for your tip on Olby's 'waffles' comment. It was the inspiration for an OlbyWatch video, just posted. Check it out, and again, great thanks, Great Thanks.

    Wolverine the prison thing, LOL

    -- Sorry, but attacking my wife isn't going to work out for you either. --

    You're CHOOSING to remain on here AWAY FROM YOUR WIFE with your inane babble that nobody cares about and I'm attacking your wife?? Olverpaid really has a spell on you. You seem to have convinced yourself that this site is talking about Mother Theresa! The laughs never stop with you!

    Some stories from newsbusters (hat tip ObserverDan link)

    * Olbermann: Obama ‘Separating Mullah Limbaugh from the Herd,’ Latest Fat Joke About Conservatives
    * Olbermann: Hannity & Limbaugh ‘Haven’t Called [Obama] the N-Word ... Yet’
    * Olbermann Nostalgic for Days Rush Could Be Hanged

    "You;re CHOOSING to remain here AWAY FROM YOUR WIFE with your inane babble that nobody cares about and I'm attacking your wife."

    OK, Let me refraise that: You were actually attacking my marriage, not necessarily my wife.

    That said, you can continue to imply that me being on a computer somehow means that I am negecting my wife of 23 years, but that is as hypocritical and ridiculous as most of the other drivel you post on here.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I know that this will continue to be lost on you, but my posts are about YOU and YOUR hypocrisy, and have little to nothing to do with Kieth Olbermann.

    "You seem to have convinced yourslef that this site is talking about Mother Theresa!"

    Not at all. If you'll carefully review my series of posts, you'll see almost no defenses of Kieth Olbermann....just lots and lots of illumination of your own never ending hypocrisy.

    So why am I the only one laughing?

    Good work on the vid J$ *****'s

    Olberpaid is so concerned about rehashing a 2 day old Jindal speech, I guess OlberGoebells missed this story where the vice-prez is clueless:
    Reality check for Vice President Joe Biden
    Wednesday morning on the CBS Early Show, Vice President Joe Biden asked, "But what I don't understand from Governor Jindal is what would he do? In Louisiana, there's 400 people a day losing their jobs. What's he doing?"
    But that claim is wrong if you look at the numbers from the Louisiana Workforce Commission.

    iage? WTF?

    Where do I have an hour TV show 5 days a week where I'm obscenely overpaid (while my employer is getting a taxpayer bailout), deliver an hour of propaganda for a political party, and have a parade of bottom dwelling sychophants as guests to agree with everything I say?

    Left out of my last post regarding Biden's cluelessness about Louisiana joblessness. (AKA what
    Olverpaid will NEVER mention on his show)
    from the link: http://tinyurl.com/cbwkb6

    "In December, Louisiana was the only state in the nation besides the District of Columbia, according to the national press release, that added employment over the month,

    Also available on the site are the state's latest unemployment statistics, statistics that appear to directly contradict what the vice president said Wednesday morning.

    The latest statistics show from the week ending January 17th, there were 4,527 claims for unemployment insurance in Louisiana. For the next week, that number dropped to 4,179.

    Boy, MikeH really knows how to put his foot in his mouth.

    I'll tell you something that was painful to watch: It was watching 'the future of the Republican party', Bobby Jindal, look like Mister Rogers talking to kindergarten children the other night. MikeH

    Mikey, Jindal was talking to you. He came down to YOUR kindergarten brain dead level you fool. Remember mikey, for every Republican you want to mock, there is a handful of Dems we can mock. Take your favorite one, Barney Frank. Frank cannot speak in front of a camera without spitting all over the lens. It's been known for camera men to bring beach towels along to wipe off the spittal. No MikeH, your Barney Frank is a real winner. Frank is the painful one to watch, just imagining him saying a song lyric over and over .... give it to me baby uh huh uh huh, give it to me baby uh huh uh huh. Goes to show you what direction YOUR party is going in.

    What an idiot MikeH has again shown himself to be by saying....

    "Why isn't anyone talking about that "oh God" comment that 'Olbermann' made any more?"

    Why?....Because this subject was well taken care of WEDNESDAY....I posted even before Matthews finally admitted to the unprofessional behavior.....

    By cee on February 25, 2009 8:57 AM

    Well, whoever said, "Oh God," it was yet another example of the disingenuous of the radical left. Governor Jindal's speech had excellent points of logical, defendable and justifiable checks on the HUGE spending spree our federal government has decided to embark on.....

    "Democratic leaders say their legislation will grow the economy. What it will do is grow the government, increase our taxes down the line and saddle future generations with debt.

    "Who among us would ask our children for a loan, so we could spend money we do not have, on things we do not need? That is precisely what the Democrats in Congress just did. It’s irresponsible. And it’s no way to strengthen our economy, create jobs or build a prosperous future for our children.

    "In Louisiana, we took a different approach. Since I became governor, we cut more than 250 earmarks from our state budget. And to create jobs for our citizens, we cut taxes six times — including the largest income tax cut in the history of our state.

    "We passed those tax cuts with bipartisan majorities. Republicans and Democrats put aside their differences, and worked together to make sure our people could keep more of what they earn. If it can be done in Baton Rouge, surely it can be done in Washington, DC."


    ###
    By deriding the republican response, Olbermann and his ilk, who are supposed to be "journalists," show their hypocrisy. Governor Jindal has an alternative ideology to that of the left and fairness calls for unbiased, unfiltered coverage. NBC NEWS decided that was not to be the case.

    Those from the left that were so worried about our democracy under what Olbermann worried was "fascism," back in 2005 should open their eyes. When a simple response from a respected and respectful elected official is greeted with taking The Lord's name in vain and disrespctful laughter, on a news broadcast, our nation is diminished.

    This is a new age of hatred and destruction. Olbermann and those he supports should be ashamed of themselves.

    The church of SNOBamessiah once again showed it's true self last night.

    VERO POSSUMUS!


    ###
    Also, this little argument after we all discovered it was Matthews.....

    By cee on February 25, 2009 3:55 PM

    No apology is necessary, ramjet (although I suspect you were being sarcastic). Keith Olbermann was ANCHORING the coverage, and he is responsible to conduct the coverage in a fair and balanced way.....He did not. An explaination from him or Matthews after the slip and laughter was known would have been the ethical thing to do....

    The new Murrow has no problem with the biased coverage. Pundits, journalists....it does not matter....NBC NEWS has abandoned any shred of honesty.

    Real differences of opinion about government spending, borrowing, federal government growth, CONSTITUIONAL questions on the unfunded mandates being thrust upon states already very subserviant to the Washington behemoth as well as the cost from the states already strapped for cash in the future exist.

    Jindal intelligently, if not with great style and flair, presented those differences and the challenge that much of the stimulus will not help the country get out of the recession.

    The "journalists" covering the story divulged their agenda. This country is diminished by such unprofessional and biased action because if Obama's plan fails, Jindal is a part of the opposition that is supposed to exist to help fix the mess that was created. Olbermann and his ilk act as if it is guaranteed Obama's plan will be a benefit. It may make things worse. Where is the accountability we heard so much about from the "loyal opposition" during the Bush FASCIST years?

    In addition, the acceptance of Obama's contentions without question (how about that the automobile was invented by Americans or that his plans do not make government bigger?), also shows these "journalists" as the shills we have all always known them to be.

    Jindal spoke intelligently and with conviction. The press seemed to deride another prominent Republican for not being so smart.....remember Sarah Palin?....It seems republicans are damned if they are smart, damned if they are charasmatic.

    That's ok, though. The fawning of such self-important people will be remembered as absurd because the plans being implemented by Obama and the liberal Democrats will fail.

    I am worried about what these failures will mean for my family's and community's future, but I suggest people prepare for about 4 years from now.....it will not be pretty.

    And heaven forbid there is an international crisis even 1/10th that of 9/11.....Obama is 100% pol....only the campaign continues and the narrow/shallow principles and ability of the current executive and his designees will be easily torn asunder in the harsh cool wind of international catastrophe. EVERYTHING is calculated in personal political terms for this new administration and it will negatively impact the world for generations to come.

    These two posts were on this blog 24 hours before the dote, MikeH made his silly contention.

    MikeH suggests this latest episode of unprofessional smearing of a respectful, intelligent and reasonable elected official vidicated Keith Olbermann!!! What an idiot!

    Oh many times MikeH has whined about how I write about Obama and yet he is willing to excuse the way another elected official was treated by Olbermann. Maddow and Matthews. Another example of MikeH hypocrisy! He also derided the governor himself with immature characterizations.....MORE HYPOCRISY!

    BTW, I never said it was Olbermann was said, "Oh God"....I left open the possibility it may be any idiot at MSNBC because they all have been guilty of journalistic malpractice in the past. Olbermann was the anchor and should have addressed the mistake on air that evening, apologizing to the viewers, to Governor Jindal and the fine people of Louisiana whom he serves humbly and competently.

    And while I am crushing MikeH once again, lets talk about Bobby Jindal. He was also the victim of another smear by none other than our grandpa idiot VP, Joe Biden. The uninformed VP (who forgot his own website name, RECOVERY.GOV, and then asked what the NUMBER for the website was on national TV!), said Louisiana is losing 400 jobs a day....WRONG. Louisiana is actually better off than many states in their unemployment rate AND gained jobs in December...there is NO data backing up the Obama Administration's propaganda against Governor Jindal......BIDEN LIED!

    Oh well, just like Obama lying about not raising taxes on people making less than 250K/year (he is through his energy taxes)....the VP is just being a good zealot of the church of SNOBamessiah.....defend The One no matter what it takes.

    MikeH is a foolish fanatic......it is useless to try to engage him directly because he lies and is an hypocrite. Ignore him. Post your FACTS to his lies and move on.

    VERO POSSUMUS!

    RECOVERY.GOV....

    I pulled a Biden.

    CLARIFICATION, please;

    Wasn't Jindal - the respectful, intelligent and reasonable elected official- the one who told that folksy little story about being on the ground helping out during Hurricane Katrina, also the same guy who just flew over the site in a helicopter?

    BTW- if Mike H is "this site's lone olbyloon," then I MUST have crossed over to your side! I will have to consider what that means...

    SA, if you are going to use TPM or the diaries of dailykos to attack the validity of Jindal's story, those are pretty lame. I read them and they have no proof refutting Jindal said happened.

    Jindal was in New Orleans and Baton Rouge helping in the wake of Katrina, and NO ONE questioned his commitment and caring for his fellow Louisianans UNTIL he voiced opposition to many components of the President's stimulus plan.

    Why? Why now does the radical left investigate the events of Katrina only after Jindal made a short speech offerring a good and defendable alternative to HUGE central planning and spending for a recession that is effecting different areas of our huge nation much differently?

    The motive is POLITICAL. FOR SHAME! Calling Jindal a liar without proof is wrong and radical. He was respectful and receptive to Obama's plans and has valid concerns over UNFUNDED mandates that are deemed unnecessary for his state.

    He is the governor and now the left wants to target him because he does not fall into line silent and accept the orders from on high.

    This is fascist! Speak and be prepared to be called a liar the next day from the president's fanatic supporters without any hard evidence.

    Even Biden lied in arguing against Jindal. Louisiana is not losing 400 jobs a day....there is no evidence of such a statisitc but the left tries to push the propaganda to inflame and smear anyway.

    Please review what you are implying, SA....It is wrong.

    Hey Mike H. It looks like you have a lot of experience on posting on blogs so I've decided to take you on as a pet project. I know it has been attempted by the regulars here many times, but I can shift blame and use doublespeak just as well as you can.

    Here's the deal, you bring up personal things about you like your "mentally challenged" neighbor in what seems to be an attempt to garner some sympathy for your low IQ. Now you brought up your wife and marriage in an attempt to make people think that you don't have a man crush on Speshul Ted. Look, be honest with yourself and you will get more respect from the people who read this blog. We don't care if you want to toss OlberGoerble's salad, just come out of the closet already.

    For you to tell the people who post here that they are bad because they point out how fat your boycrush is and maybe for using an occasional hyperbole while you attack them and defend someone who demands an apology while taking videos out of context, running "news" stories that are doctored, slandering people and only telling one side of things to pump his ego up(damn, I should get an award for this run-on sentence) then you deserve all that you get on this blog.

    Your problem is that you want everyone to be fair and respectful to your wet dream while you fantasize of shrimping him with rose colored glasses. Wake up man, if you would actually read the commentary, links and watch the videos, you might actually improve your IQ. Take responsibility for yourself and if there is something factually incorrect, bring it up, but make sure that you are factually sound beforehand. It may require that you do something that your fantasy lover has never done: research.

    Merry Christmas.

    Yet, just because derision and disdain is deserved doesn't demand derogatory dishes of just deserts be duly doled out to disrespect our dopey, daily denizen of doltery.

    A diligent indifference will dutifully do the deed.

    I thought the whole "Oh God" thing was taken care of when one of the members said they would, in true Olbermann fashion, apologize when someone else did it for them.

    Mike H., the man who would rather defend Olbermann in the middle of the night then be with his wife. I wouldn't call it neglecting her but I would ask why.

    He might be right though, Olbermannwatch.com might not affect Olbermann or his viewers. If I could actually find someone who watches his show I would send them here but it's hard to find two people in a nation of 300 million.

    "Mike H., the man who would rather defend Olbermann in the middle of the night then be with his wife. I wouldn't call it neglecting her but I would ask why."

    Flan, we have no idea if Mrs MikeHee considers that "neglect". After all, if I were her I would call it relief and another bullet dodged. :)

    OK, cee:"Please review what you are implying, SA....It is wrong."

    I'm not implying anything. I'm very old school. If I think someone is a liar, I don't have a problem calling that guy a liar.

    Haven't read TDKOS for a couple of months now. I HEARD this item in conversation. I figured you guys would be able to refute anything untrue.

    I don't know if it's true or not, in fact, if it was, it wouldn't matter much to me BECAUSE EVERY POLITICIAN I KNOW has told self-serving lies in public. (Helicopter Hillary?)

    Really, I wouldn't have even bothered to post ANYTHING, except for the fact that you mentioned Jindal as "respectful, intelligent and reasonable" which seemed to be less about his speech performance and more as a glowing blanket-endorsement of Jindal.

    Well SA, out of all of the prominant Republican elected officals, Bobby Jindal has never been one to be accused of being rude, insulting or even overly partisan. The worst I have seen in the nutroots was his religious beliefs as the scarlet letter of shame.

    He has always conducted his policy discussions in the same manner he did Wednesday night....respectfully and logically.

    That is what I meant. And it seems the left is prepared to take anyone out with accusations of lying, etc. if they have a difference of opinion than that of Barack Obama....And COUNTDOWN in now a conduit for such authoritarianism and it is the height of hypocrisy given their past behavior during the Bush years.

    MikeH was one on this blog to cite the prewar failures of the press in towing the line and that Olbermann was couragous for being the check on the rush to supporting the Iraq war....how about the press towing Obama's line now? Oh, that's right, the ideology is new so the same behavior is now acceptable?


    Via the MSNBC.com transcript, here is my recap of WPitW:
    Worse was Another O'Reilly Attack featuring Dennis Miller. "Sharing the bronze, Bill-O the Clown [Ding!] and his marionette, Dennis Miller." Ouch. Then, via Media Matters, Frank Caliendo Olbermann did a nasty impression of the D-Man. After saying, "Bill-O [Ding!] promptly claimed credit," Man on Fan went to his tried and false Ted Baxter voice. Throwing in a caller to "The Dennis Miller Show" as collateral damage, Monkeymann said: "You're probably right about that, since all three of you are wrong on the facts. Then Senator Obama wrote last June, quote [Ding!], (likely looking at a gotcha paper): “I oppose the divisive and discriminatory efforts to amend the California constitution.” Dennis, Bill, congratulations, another person you have misinformed."
    Minutes later, Bill read a viewer e-mail that said the same thing Merkle did, but without malicious intent. He promptly apologized.

    Worser is worth sharing with you because it likely involved theatrical indignation and faux outrage. "Runner up, Colorado State Senator Dave Schultheis, Republican, Colorado Springs. First time, he voted against a bill requiring HIV tests for pregnant women, because since the disease, quote [Ding!], ... he doesn't want to see the state doing anything that would, quote [Ding!], ... Seriously.
    So I'm assuming Senator Schultheis that you also think you should not treat anybody hurt in a car crash where they were not wearing a seat belt? Schultheis though has now defended this crazy statement by adding, ... There are a lot of things that could be said to, and should be said to Senator Schultheis right now, but this is the most important of them, get out, just get out."

    Worst was Sean Hannity with an additional O'Reilly Attack. "But our winner is Sean Hannity. Next time he or Bill-O [Ding!] talks about liberal hate speech on the web..." STOP THE TRANSCRIPT! Our humble correspondent does not refer to quote [Ding!] "liberal hate speech on the web." He talks about the far-left. But it's on in the same, right, Oralmann? Anyway, "... remind them about this. This is a poll posted late Monday night and remaining at last check in the forum section of Hannity's website. It asks his listeners what kind of revolution appeals most to you, military coup, armed rebellion or secession. To his credit, the poster is saying any form of revolution would be treason. He said he started the poll because there has been so much talk on Hannity's website supporting revolution or secession, a topic which one Hannity poster says produced 3,000 responses. There have been 22 votes, with armed rebellion comfortably in the lead, 11 to eight to three.
    When another of the Hannity faithful noted that armed insurrection and coups would be treason, someone else posted at Hannity.com, quote [Ding!], (likely looking at gotcha paper): only if the insurrection or coup fails. Sean, you might want to check if this constitutes incitement to treason, Hannity, today‘s worst person in the world."

    Another day at the office for Herr Olbermann.

    And of course, my transcript-assisted recap will be lost in Another Endless Debate featuring the two dissenters and the many bait-takers. No offense, everyone.

    By Mike C. on February 27, 2009 1:28 PM

    Excellent recap, MikeC. Thank you for your service at Olbermann Watch. I enjoy your recaps greatly.

    This little fishy is going to swim away now for the weekend and not take any bait. I have had my fill.

    Have a good weekend.

    "Wasn't Jindal - the respectful, intelligent and reasonable elected official- the one who told that folksy little story about being on the ground helping out during Hurricane Katrina, also the same guy who just flew over the site in a helicopter?

    BTW- if Mike H is "this site's lone olbyloon," then I MUST have crossed over to your side! I will have to consider what that means..."

    SA, why would you think anyone was referring to you as a loon. Although I can't literally speak for others I am pretty well attuned to the "others" I'm referencing and your paticular political ideology is not the determinate. It is your behavior which as far as I have seen has been perfectly correct.

    Just a few reasons I personally consider the charge of "loon" re MikeHee is one of the milder ones:

    1. Has a habit of calling people (witnessOS) nazis or implying Naziism or Fascism.

    3. Has howled and squealed with indignation like a stuck pig whenever anyone brings up his statement to Cee that "thinking such as his is a cancer that should be removed.

    $. Called Cecelia more then once and often with adjectives "bitch"

    6. Has berated me, a lady of not tender years, more then once for not protecting and defending him from all those nasty rightys.

    7. No 6 takes on new meaning when you consider what went on here when it was a totally unmoderated site. NOT ONCE did MikeHee ever scold anyone even when we three lady regulars wer called sluts, slatterns, whores, drunks by the affectionate nick names of Hag, Bag and Gag. Never once objected to the regulars who had a fine old time linking RK and his family day in and day out with bestiality.

    8. MikeHee was a serial name changer who justified it by his normal weasel tactics while accusing everyone else of being mean to him b/c he had seen the error of his ways the month before it came out.

    9. His use of people in his circle of family and neighbors who are retarded to score points here.

    Bobby Jindal is a very well beloved and admired figure in LA. Kathleen Blanco was a walking train wreck. Jindal has been quite successful in leading LA.

    Now, while I'm here I may as well talk your whole arm off instead of juat a bite.

    I have noticed that you have expressed concerns about OW being a "hate" site. The designation mystifies me b/c I go to sites that I consider "hate sites"KOS, HuffPuff, NewsHounds just to see what issues they are addressing

    Those sites are just brimming and over flowing with the most wretched hateful topics and comments. A case on point from NewsHounds:

    Just two excerpts from the comments (BTW it is a Moderated site).

    "Megyn "I eat meat" Kelly.

    Yeah, sure you do.

    NPR Responds To Juan Williams' Comments About Michelle Obama

    "Lawn Jockey Juan will have to soon decide whether being an obedient House Negro on Fox Noise is worth surrendering any pretense of journalistic integrity on the real media.

    This from a site that "Watches Fox News So You Don't Have To" whose mission is to root out and expose errors at Fox such as sexism and racism.

    For a real eyeful try some of their Off Topc threads. The hate almost jumps off the page and bites you.

    SA, for saying so much I forgot to point out this re MikeHee's charge that I never defended him.

    I had a consistent record of noting and criticizing bad behavior from both sides of the aisle. Once in a while it was in defense of a particular commenter re a particularly heinous insult. As best I recall not for MikeHee though. But also to the best of my memory MikeHee was never attacked as the Infamous Gang of Five (Cecelia, Sharon, Cee, RK and me).

    But also to the best of my memory MikeHee was never attacked as the Infamous Gang of Five (Cecelia, Sharon, Cee, RK and me)...Grammie

    Damn! I entered this site just a little late to be included I'm sure, because after all I've been called an idiot, anti-American, hypocrite, sick, right winger, racist, etc. and all because I had the nerve to say I love America.

    Maybe that great club could be changed to the Infamous Gang of Five Plus One.

    Great post above Grammie, and your previous ... Flan, we have no idea if Mrs MikeHee considers that "neglect". After all, if I were her I would call it relief and another bullet dodged. :)...may be more apt than you meant it to be.

    "BTW- if Mike H is "this site's lone olbyloon," then I MUST have crossed over to your side! I will have to consider what that means..."

    Well SA, let's see...

    Do you come to this site using juvenile attacks, some personal, against posters, in order to distract from the purpose of this site, which of course, is to hold Olbermann accountable for his distortions, lies, and smears, due to his "journalistic" habit of ripping and reading of blue blogs, while at the same time, offer no such criticizim of Olbermann for committing those journalistic sins, or at worst, defense of those sins?

    If so, MikeHee has a commrad here, and we now get to examine yet another mind of those million or so morons who drink the Olbermann koolaid.

    If not, MikeHee remains the lone olbyloon.

    Wolfie, just change to the Infamous Gang of Six. Gang of Four was Flucker's invention and he used various numbers, I actually ran across him on a site devoted strictly to giving "Atta Boys" to KO where he was complaining about R Cox and J$ having a Stalinist purge here. But the purge came after the Gang of Four had already driven everyone off by their vileness. True to himself always.

    To follow up on my WPitW recap, here is the viewer e-mail Bill read: "O'Reilly, please remind Miller that President Obama said he opposes gay marriage and opposed Prop. 8 in California. Just one of the many examples of him playing it both ways." That was from Clint Smith in West Jordan, Utah.
    Bill responded this way: "Now, I *should* have pointed that out to Dennis last night, sir. Thank you for your letter."

    Captain Oblivious
    "(I've decided to take you MikeH, on as a pet project.) I know it has been attempted by the regulars here...."
    Those wimpy regulars must be secretly breathing a sigh of relief. (Especially MikeC.) Finally, someone with the courage to go into battle with the fearsome "MikeH." Will you be selling tickets to the event, or is just open seating?

    flindycon
    'SA a olbyloon?' Well SA, let's see...Do you come to this site...
    in order to distract from the purpose of this site?"

    My coming here was to find out what this place was really like (not just hearsay)
    and just by doing so, I am a distraction. So, that would have to be "yes."

    However, Mr. Cox does encourage cross-pollination.

    GRAMMIE!
    "Why would you think anyone was referring to you as a loon?"

    Um... while I am honored by your generosity of spirit, unless there is an "Option C" there seem to be only two sides to this issue: Anti-KO and the occasional Pro-KO (Olbyloons). And I am not Anti-KO!

    And thank you for your meticulously detailed lists of sites you consider "full of wretched hateful topics and comments." BUT I WILL TAKE YOUR WORD FOR IT! If I have any time left after visiting here I go to icanhascheezburger!

    But first, I'd really like another older woman's advice on menstrual cramps. You know when it's that time of month and lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut id quam a nisi sagittis lacinia. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas!

    OK, now that the MALES have left. (Some men apparently start coughing up hairballs if I say something about Olbermann.)

    Now, "...about OW being a 'hate' site." It's not the target (Olbermann) as much as the language. And most of the nastiness is GENERIC. Meaning you could easily cut and paste any other public person else there. OW has the serious posters who debate, and check facts and do the work. So the smarts are there. Which to me, makes the other stuff unnecessary, distracting and... odd.

    As to your case against MikeH: you say he "has called people nazis, bitch." I'd call that stupid. No question.

    Your additional charge that MikeH: "berated me, more then once for not protecting and defending him." Despite the aggravation it caused YOU.. um, that I find that story is amusing! Man or woman: if you can't defend yourself in an open forum, I doubt that you should be advertising that fact.

    OK, now the truly serious: "we three lady regulars wer called sluts, slatterns, whores, drunks, nick names of Hag, Bag and Gag. Never objected to by the regulars." I'm hoping you'll can tell me that these incidents prompted Mr. Cox get a moderator.

    Idiot men who form a pack to call women names is truly pathetic. (It may have been their social life.) The men who wouldn't try and put a stop to it- and it wouldn't have taken much in the begining- they were cowards and just as responsible. Any site that encourages it members to attack each other, rather than unite against their stated common goal, has, as they say... "issues."

    Finally, Grammie, I don't know if we'll connect again, but know for a fact that if that behavior you described happened while I was there, you would have had an ally and I would have gone after them.

    Hope your future remains more peaceful.

    Well gee SA, you only answered part of a question I posed to determine what I believe qualifies as an olbyloon. Let's look at the the WHOLE question I originally posed so you might, if you feel so inclined, address the rest of the question that you cut out:

    Seeing as you admit to distracting from the purpose of this blog while you post here, that's one qualification in my book. However, as of yet, you do not seem to sling juvenile peronal attacks as part of that distraction.

    At best, you gave an incomlete answer.


    This just in for S.A.
    I called my neighbor who is a 65 year old woman and I asked her to come over to read your blog. In response to your question "But first, I'd really like another older woman's advice on menstrual cramps.

    My neighbor says that in your case and mindset that you should " get a 9mm Glock, a full clip, and put it to your head, pull trigger.

    S.A. you have got to be the female version of mikeH 100%. What schools did you go to, Dimwit & Dumb and for college Liberal and Lost?

    S.A. your wanting of a moderator is a classic example of the left that would only print their side of the story (bias). That's the difference here, we enjoy the freedom of speech unlike the lefties/liberals. If you need a moderator, I suggest you go back to KO's sites that promote that kind of socialistic view, otherwise if you're going to blog here, you must be able to take both sides of the coin.

    SA, until your post that was directed at me I had no qualms with you. You didn't seem to be a person who would make an insane argument although you are now stepping into the realm of NYAK-land. If you want to have some type of unimportant line of discussion that makes you look more like MikeH, I look forward to treating you like him. Just remember to post your ideas without any proof or statement that they are opinion while kissing Obamann's ass.

    Look, I'm sure some people agree with olbermann and read and/or post here. The difference is whether they are objective or not. I don't go to any anti-oreilly/hannity/limbaugh sites because I really don't give a crap what they say. The difference is that MikeH and other people who take Keesha's word as gospel can not refute truth. If he was so secure in what he talked about, he would have a different opinion on his show and if correct he would obliterate them. However, said people would not be invited because they would say what the context was or *GASP* actually tell the truth and prove him wrong.

    As new as I am here, I am waiting for someone to refute what is said on this site which totally discredits olbergoerbells. Maybe you will finally do it although it seems like you are taking after MikeH and his master. I'll start the odds at an easy 12-1 that you won't.

    hugz n kisses

    Captain Oblivious?
    "I had no qualms with you."
    Hey, I had no qualms with you, either, until I read that you thought:
    1) MikeH was this great threat
    2) That the "regulars" just couldn't vanquish
    3) That YOU were the one to take this task on as a project.

    Gee, I'm new here, too. But in about a week it was clear that OW does not trembling in fear over an opposing voice. So when I read your post, I figured you sounded boastful and disrespectful to people I know work hard here. My post, Captain? That was satire. Maybe not very good, but SATIRE.

    "hugz n kisses?"
    Thanks, but I'm saving them all for dreamy Keith. There's so much more of him to love now!

    Let's NOT. In order to save space, I picked out the one thing I am "guilty of" and everything else was NEGATIVE, OK?

    "...as of yet, you do not seem to sling juvenile peronal attacks as part of that distraction."

    "I called my neighbor who is a 65 year old woman and I asked her to come over to read your blog. In response to your question "But first, I'd really like another older woman's advice on..."

    What a waste of the good woman's time! And it certainly makes you appear sexist. Why on earth would you seek out an older woman when anyone, anyone could have understood the intent was for people who didn't want to read me, could just move on. And you didn't even mention the Latin that followed. That was "greeking." Why do you think that would that be there?

    Also, Im betting that YOU wrote the blow-my-head-off valentine. Why? Because WOMEN are smart enough to know that ONE BULLET would have been enough. (A "full clip?" C'mon!)

    I did not ask for a moderator. Grammie mentioned that the site used to not have a moderator. (I don't know if you have one here now.)

    "If you're going to blog here, you must be able to take both sides of the coin." Um... I have no clear idea of what you meant by that, but.....whatever.

    Awww, SA I just got a warm fuzzy feeling from your posts.

    Hey S.A. where should I start in picking you apart?
    From S.A.
    OK, now the truly serious: "we three lady regulars wer called sluts, slatterns, whores, drunks, nick names of Hag, Bag and Gag. Never objected to by the regulars." I'm hoping you'll can tell me that these incidents prompted Mr. Cox get a moderator.
    As I said previously, we don't have a moderator here, but if Mr. Cox feels it appropriate, as has in a few past times, He (Mr. Cox) will desolve that person from this site, (patrick).
    I am not sexist and find that your question regarding mentrual cramping a bit moronic in the middle of this blog. Almost sounded like something that would come out of the mouth of an Olbermann guest (Garofalo).
    If you have no clear idea what I meant by that then I suggest that you go back to your daily kos where you will only understand the one sidedness that goes on there. It's a two way street darlin.


    Captain Oblivious:
    Back attcha! ;)

    SoCalRightist:
    "Duly noted. Moving on." (Took the hint.)


    SA, I suggest that you have a total hysterectomy.

    That will solve the whole gamut from PMS to cramps.

    It has the added bonus of assuring you will never reproduce. The thought of little snippy SAs running around is rather unpleasant.

    BTW, :), b/c I love and use satire quite often.

    Grammie!

    Thanks for the suggestion! Been there, done that!

    "The thought of little snippy SAs running around is rather unpleasant."
    Hey, I second that! (Although i would hope they would eventually grow.)

    Fortunately, OW posters and I do agree- I always knew I wasn't parent material.
    One less worry for your world, glad to have been of help!

    Grammie,

    It wasn't being called those names or being otherwise insulted that bothered me.

    Being barraged by sexist insults by liberal males is part and parcel with being a conservative female commenter on a blog board.

    Aside for trying to turn this board into a demented circus, it was Capon's pretense of respectability at JDP's that irritated me.

    AAP might be a baby step above a slavering vermin infested wild dog that growls and gnashes at everything in site, but at least he never attempts to feign otherwise.

    Grammie,

    Now that I think back on it though, they truly were beyond the pale. I certainly had not felt that level of puerile hostility before and have only felt it once (at News Hounds) since.

    Cecelia,

    Thankfully, now that we're 10 months away without it memory and reactions do start to dim a bit.

    Patsy spent about two months with comment after comment about President and Mrs Reagan that were absolutely vile. The descriptions of all their bodily functions while crowing about diapers etc. He is definitely one sick puppy.
