    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    March 12, 2009
    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!

    Posted by johnny dollar | Permalink | Comments (42) | | View blog reactions


    Seymour "Sy" Hursh, Rachel "Rach" Maddow, Eugene "Gene" Robinson, "the stim" stimulus package... Why can't Keith just talk like a normal person and not get caught up in trying to sound "cool"?

    Another, "What if Bush had done this" moment....I have whiplash!

    The One 2/5/09.....

    "By now, it’s clear to everyone that we have inherited an economic crisis as deep and dire as any since the days of the Great Depression. Millions of jobs that Americans relied on just a year ago are gone; millions more of the nest eggs families worked so hard to build have vanished. People everywhere are worried about what tomorrow will bring.

    "Because each day we wait to begin the work of turning our economy around, more people lose their jobs, their savings and their homes. And if nothing is done, this recession might linger for years. Our economy will lose 5 million more jobs. Unemployment will approach double digits. Our nation will sink deeper into a crisis that, at some point, we may not be able to reverse."

    The One, TODAY....

    "[The national crisis] is not as bad as we think.

    "A smidgen of good news and suddenly everything is doing great. A little bit of bad news and ooohh , we’re down on the dumps, and I am obviously an object of this constantly varying assessment. I am the object in chief of this varying assessment.

    "I don't think things are ever as good as they say, or ever as bad as they say. Things two years ago were not as good as we thought because there were a lot of underlying weaknesses in the economy.

    "They’re not as bad as we think they are now."

    Got that everyone? Our new commander-in-chief is making a lot of sense!

    And the "smart" members of our country that are members of the church of SNOBamessiah?......They are nodding.......Yes sir, yes sir, yes sir.


    Someone needs to create an "Olbermann Roseata Stone" to we try and figure what in the hell this "person" is talking about at any give time. After about 3 seconds of having to listen to his so called "narrations" I guess he realizes that his core audience is really just a bnuch of "STUPID PEOPLE" that need to be talked to like they are "STUPID"

    OMG he actually has a baseball card? WHAT! He gave the rest of his cards to "chairty" Ok I ll take one of those and....just use your imagine what I would do with it..

    My 6th sense for anticipating Olby attacks tells me that the Alexa(or is it Alexis?) Foundation attacks will resume tomorrow based on some out of context comments thrown together using BillOs Chris Brown Rihanna segment tonight.

    And in WPitW Keith just admitted to having baseball cards with his own image on them. I'm starting to think KO was the basis for Oliver Stones "W".

    Ha! Margreat Carlson is taking the air out of Olbermann's obession with the Billboard. Go margreat make him look like the FOOL HE IS...Hey Keith she is trying to say in a roun about way THIS STORY IS OVER! MOVE ON..hmmmm...MOVE ON where have I heard that before oh the web site where he get his word by word "news" stories...

    Did Keith try dancing around this one?:

    Economists gave Obama a failing grade so far. They expected the economic downturn to end in August, but thanks to Obama's policies they now are pushing that prediction out to at least October.

    America47000, to your quesstion..he ignores it..and makes up more lies about conservatives.

    Alexa, irush, and I hope not. But it all depends on whether or not Newshounds, Think Propaganda (Progress), or Media Matters does that.

    Of course he ripped on Coulter for sure she won't let that rest. Did anyone catch KO sticking his finger in his mouth like he was sucking on it? That man has severe issues or he's gay.

    Did Fineman talk about his article from the other day, or was it not really that big of a deal? I was it kind of blown our of proportion?

    U N effing W A T C H A B L E....AGAIN!

    And now U N effing U N D E R S T A N D A B L E, U N effing T R A N S L A T A B L E drivel contained in the drool from Mr. "too" Cool.

    OMG...WTF is this show even about any more??? God 'O Mighty..HELP!

    The "Countdown" website has a permanent link to last night's Factor Fiction O'Reilly/Goldberg Attack. Above the link: "And in clown [Ding!] news..."

    Keith's still in Tampa.

    #5A: Video title: "Cheney headed assassination ring?" Blue blog source: HuffPo via Minnesota Post.
    Seymour Hersch made that outrageous claim...but was not the guest. Instead, Howard Fineman made his weekly appearance.
    #5B: Same topic, different guest. John Dean, the disbarred lawyer, stirred the Konspiracy pot.

    #4: Video title: "Steele vs. Steele on abortion." Clarence Page, who thinks Fox News is far-right [Ding!], discussed this supposed news.

    Oddball: Dolphins at Sea World in Orlando blowing bubbles out of there blowhole...or something.

    BPitW: Ha-ha! Ann Coulter's "Guilty" isn't selling enough copies. Blue blog source: Portfolio.

    #3: The eeevil Judicial Watch is "Smearing Pelosi" (video title). Crazy Larry O. would not allow this and neither would Progressivemann.

    Infinitely Bushed: Stuff that doesn't matter to clear-thinking Americans.

    #2: The Media Matters Minute. Worse was Rupert Murdoch. Something about a baseball card.
    Worser was SNL alumna Victoria Jackson. Boss Limbaugh! [Ding!] Blue blog source: HuffPo.
    She was the wild card in the Great American Panel on last night's "Hannity." Also part of that panel, Fox News Contributor (and Democrat) Bob Beckel.
    Worst was Newt Gingrich. Blue blog source: Rotisserie Story.
    "Waaaait a minute," Komedian Keith says at one point.

    #1: Video title: "DNC unveils anti-Limaugh billboard." A Carlson that isn't a trained classical violinist was the guest. (Gretchen is, Margaret isn't.) I didn't watch, but I'm sure "Boss Limbaugh [Ding!]" was uttered at least once.

    "*their* blowhole."

    Back in the day I once called out to work to go to a Grateful Dead Show, was seen by a fellow worker (butt kisser) who ratted me out to management, who didn't get me fired but did get me suspended.

    But some fat-ass, third rate, ego maniac can call out, act like a jerk at a ballgame and nothing happens.

    If it was me I would have just wiped my butt with the card and flicked it on the ground and smiled at bubble boy.

    Just in case you don't know, there are a lot of strip clubs around the Tampa area.

    The Judicial Watch investigation also came up last night on "The Factor."
    Talking Points Memo:
    Miller Time:

    Back in the day I once called out to work to go to a Grateful Dead Show, was seen by a fellow worker (butt kisser) who ratted me out to management, who didn't get me fired but did get me suspended.

    Maybe it was because of who you went to see when you called out. You should have told them James Brown, and you might have gotten a raise. lol

    Tonight on "The Factor," the far-left internet attacks on Bristol Palin were discussed.

    KO hammered Victoria Jackson big time, saying she hasn't done anything funny since Garfield and Friends. Well...FYI: KO hasn't done anything funny since SC back in the 90's so pot meet kettle Keith.

    Does really anyone care about Cheney and his assination buddies? I don't....they're out of office KO, worry 'bout your own buddies in there now instead of bringing up the past, but I guess that is what you're good at.

    Kountdown and its parade of fools
    A cameo for NBC tools
    Then it's back to their stall
    Butchie Madcow et al
    Have the strap-on type family jewels

    "strap-on type family jewels"

    Now that's priceless!

    He did mention his pals from Daily Kos tonight...geez, can they get rid of this tool already?

    It seems it was more of the same distractions instead of ethical journalism and analysis from Olbermann last night.

    He mentioned Coulter....She has another excellent column this week exposing the hypocrisy and moral vacancy of the intolerant secular left. Two good columns in a row for chairman Ann is unusual in my opinion, but she does have some great point


    "As the great liberal intellectual Bertrand Russell explained while scoffing at the idea that he would give his money to charity: 'I'm afraid you've got it wrong. (We) are socialists. We don't pretend to be Christians.'"

    I really think in his own "small" mind Keith thinks he is a Rockstar! The story about his baseball card I think it says it all, anyone who would actually braggs about having a baseball card when they have never even played major league Baseball ( or for that fact college or high school..or even Middle school Baseball) says so much! I mean the thought of him actually offering it to someone, my question who in HELL would want it? I jist love ti when he said he gave most to charity! ROFLLL!!! LOL LOL LOL

    Oh one more thing..what the hell is up with those funky classes eugene robinson is wearing now..He is such an EGG HEAD an EGG with funky classes! Such a moron!

    Great thanks, Howard.......for finally washing that shoe pollish out of your hair.

    I think somone should make up some kind of mosaic of all of Keith's "guests" Can you just picture with Finnemann's messed up hair, wolfie pointy little rat face, Robionson's funky classes, Alters...oh you do a combo of Finemann's hair and the little bit Alter has. They are just all a bunch of freaks..

    I love this baseball card that Dopey got made up on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights somewhere in the 80's.

    Keith you might as well give them away, if you put them on Ebay. They might fetch as much as this.

    Keith there is a difference, He will always be remembered. After you leave MSLSD, you will be forgottin' in less than a week.

    >KO hammered Victoria Jackson big time, saying she hasn't done anything funny since Garfield and Friends.
    "Garfield and Friends"?! You leave my favorite show alone, Keith!

    >what the hell is up with those funky classes eugene robinson is wearing now
    That was Clarence Page.

    Two birds with one stone:

    A View of the Absurd
    I Will Now Define Torture
    JACK ENGELHARD Special to the Jewish Times

    "True, we learn from "Cool Hand Luke" that "some people you just can't reach." So how about a dose of Keith Olbermann? Play him loud, play him soft, either way, there will be results, and if not, Moyers and Olbermann back to back. That may be too much even for die-hard liberals - oops, Progressives - but maybe not. One of my Progressive friends suggested that I give Olbermann a try - "he's so funny." So I tried and am still suffering. This IS cruel and unusual punishment."

    Donating his phony baseball cards to charity?????

    Just how many did he have made?

    How in the name of Sam Hell would a charity benefit from his gag baseball cards?

    Which charity(ies) received his generous donation?

    Did he list the donation as a charitible contribution in his tax returns?

    If so, what value did he place on his donation?

    The only way to get to the bottom of this, and many other disturbing questions, is by forming an Olby Truth Commision.

    Any comments on the video links of "The Factor" I provided last night?

    Any comments on the video links of "The Factor" I provided last night?

    I particularly liked the exchange between Bill and Greta regarding the left's reaction to Bristol Palin's situation, MikeC. The situation is illustrative of the extreme nature of how the left works and thinks.

    The comparison to how FNC treated the John Edwards story and how MSNBC covers Bristol Palin is particularly stark. Remember, Edwards is a public servant, a politician, a candidate who has staked out very high moral ground. His ideology allows a shield against the very attacks leveled against 18yo PRIVATE CITIZEN who has been humble and open in the challenges her poor choices have created. O'Relly points out the choice in COMPASSION he made in not making the Edwards story a big deal because of the hurt such would put to Mrs. Edwards. Good for him!

    The glee in which people like Keith Olbermann and the rest of the anti-America left take in others' misery is telling; the church of SNOBamessiah's compassion and tolerance on full display.


    "Current bid: US $2.26
    Your maximum bid:
    US $ .............................

    Too funny Scary Uncle. I wonder if the sellers are in a classic Ramson of Red Chief category? :)

    >The glee in which people like Keith Olbermann and the rest of the ... left take in others' misery is telling;
    That includes people like Christian Finnegan and Paul F. Tompkins.

    I agree with both of you.

    I was surprised, just as BOR seemed to be, that she doesn't express any disapproval to those loving progressives being so gleeful over the situation b/c of their hatred for her mother.

    I wonder what she meant by this, and I'm not sure if I got it word for word:

    "They are pathetic and I'm amused by them"

    "I just dismiss them and check them off"

    If she doesn't react then does she store it away as helpful in judging their work about other things? I would hope so.

    Mike, thanks again! I had missed that segment and am glad you gave me an opportunity to see it.

    "I want to compliment [President Obama] on how he has handled both Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "We had a briefing the day before his Iraq announcement and I felt I was still sitting around with the previous administration. The president was basically, from my point of view, it struck me, announcing a continuation of the policy in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    "I want to congratulate him for having the courage given where he started out on that issue to adjust his sails and to pursue a policy in both places essentially set in place by the previous administration."

    Mitch McConnell, today

    he, he, he.....Just like the Bush signing statements demogouery, the earmarks idealism, the "warrentless wire-tapping" policies, the rendition policies, etc, etc, etc.....

    Barack Obama, hypocrite in chief....?Tonight on COUNTDOWN?

    I noticed Olby tossed in a little "shout out" to dailykos last night on Countdown. It's not secret that he uses dailykos for show material and shameless self promotion. MSNBC is clearly OK with this relationship b/w KO & Kos. However, is there a larger agreement b/w kos & msnbc that includes using msnbc clips on the web? DailykosTV webpage basically livestreams msnbc. I thought msnbc went after websites for that kind of stuff, absent an auth. use agreement?

    It's time for the latest "ultimate response":
    Never mind O'Reilly's ratings. We know he dominated. Let's share Keithy's ratings:
    8PM in 25-54: 361,000 (3rd)
    10PM in 25-54: 282,000 (3rd)

    8PM in total: 1,274,000 (2nd, but 2.34 mil behind BOR)
    10PM in total: 688,000 (3rd, but only 37,000 ahead of Nancy Grace)

    Tonight, KO is supposed to have a "worst person of the week." bet you anything its' either Rush or BOR.

    The Worst Person of the Week is Bernie Madoff, but not on OlbyPlanet. Has Slovenly even covered Madoff or anything outside of partisan politics and personal vendettas?
