    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for tonight's Hour of Spin. Use our valuable bandwidth to document the deceitful spin and hateful lies of the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. Comments are open!

    Ok I turned it off already..Hey Ko why not do more stroies about Jonny 'My daddy wokred in a sawmill" Edwards you kknow the one that cheated on his dying wife and fathered a child and he sitll will not come clean that the baby is until KO does a stroy about HIM ..i have two words for KO and the rest of his lib left wing friends... **** you KO!

    KO will beat this into the ground forever and ever..anyone that would take glee in the pain of others is disgusting...really shows what a asshole KO is and what comes around goes around..

    Ok I turned it off already..Hey Ko why not do more stroies about Jonny 'My daddy wokred in a sawmill" Edwards you kknow the one that cheated on his dying wife and fathered a child and he sitll will not come clean that the baby is until KO does a stroy about HIM ..i have two words for KO and the rest of his lib left wing friends... **** you KO!

    KO will beat this into the ground forever and ever..anyone that would take glee in the pain of others is disgusting...really shows what a asshole KO is and what comes around goes around..

    Olbypocrisy strikes again, as I knew it would.

    South Carolina has assured themselves of a gubernatorial D for at least four years.

    Hooray!!!! It's party time on Countdown!! An EVIL republican has cheated on his wife. Mums the word when it is Eliot Spitzer, Jim McGreevey, or John Edwards but it is time to dance in the streets over Sanford's affair. Sanford is now apparently the head of the Republican Party. I guess he took that title away from Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh doesn't make a good straw man anymore. Let's fiddle while Iran and North Korea burn.

    Does KO want to be talking about emails to, as Christian Finnegan said, "a Latin chick?" Messing with a Latina and emails has been many a man's downfall when Karma strikes. Then CF mentioned the John Edwards affair, and KO chuckled and moved to a new attack. Don't want to talk about that topic.

    KO, I'd stay away from discussing emails if I were you.

    I wish Mark Levin would unleash the "file" he says he has on KO..I think its time Mark...

    I think we need to have a national day of let the politicans air their dirty laundy ..and just go on with life..

    Hey atleast Sandford did have to pay for his like Spitzer..LOL!

    that was "didn't" LOL!

    I know a guy on a forum I frequent who watches Countdown religiously. And even he said the email reading was too much. Whoops he lost another faithful viewer despite his best efforts to be cool and hip.

    > I wish Mark Levin would unleash the "file" he says he has on KO..I think its time Mark...

    I agree, or as he said if KO would try to sue him, "discovery is a bitch" - that could be entertaining

    Every once in awhile you just have to give one to hogs. There is nothing redeeming about this guy Sanford and his goofy actions. Sure, Olbermann was the first one to actually read the personal e-mails, he is always willing to take the low road. No surprise there.
    As for Sanford, "How far the mighty fall". He should consider resigning altogether.

    I was thinking aleast no one is talking about the obamacare commercial on ABC least something good came out of this mess..LOL

    Just watched part of the show on MESSNBC.COM (that way I can mute Olby whenever I want). Let's see...3 segments on Gov. Sanford (#5,4,1) and only one short segment on Iran. Can you say "priorities"?

    The #1 segment was a total waste. Plus, that was really creepy when Olby was reading the email. I think he was getting "aroused" while reading an email from a man to a woman...too weird. That was sick. I could see quoting excerpts but reading the entire email with that creepy music in the background??? Then his staff was giggling in the background just put it over the top.

    I am a big believer in Karma. If their is justice in the world, KO will get what's coming to him.

    In contrast, madow actually actually did a ok job covering..actually broke down the strange presser from the Gov.

    I bet KO takes the emails and reads them to his lady love..maybe they can roll play..since I'm sure their sex life sucks and needs a pick up..

    nomo, his gf is just a prop, he's probably home right now locked in the bathroom reading the emails to musto

    Was it like when he read that Rich Lowry blog post in October?

    Ewww I'm watching him read the 'email reading" it really is CREEEPY!

    One note why on Earth would Sanford use his official government email acount? DUMB!

    Love the pic!

    HEY Olberdumber'nshitmann! Your oversized windsor knot and the thick stripes on the shirt do NOT, by contrast, reduce the ACTUAL ABNORMALLY MASSIVE appearance of your head!

    ........and as for the neck rolls ABOVE that knot (there appears to be 3-5 of them), Lord have mercy, man! Give the damn biscuits and gravy, chocolate doughnuts, and potato cakes 'n cheese sandwiches a rest or you're gonna look like Barney Frank by mid-July!

    Everyone knows KO is on a strict Chicken and Waffles diet.

    One Kossack agrees with us on the reading of the e-mails by Oralmann. Read for yourself, read-for-yourselfers. The title: "Olbermann = Piece of Crap = Rush Jr." That's a great idea: Rush Juniormann.

    I just had to read the comments over at the Kos, Bill-O is right, they are deep in the Kool-Ade over there. But really, I love the denial they're all in. When you know someone personally who was disgusted and is/was a fan, you know there will be more to follow.

    Now that a Kos-Kid speaks out and a few there agree with him as well. It's just a matter of time before the triple-chin in the triple-suit loses more than triple to BOR.

    John Edwards has a bastard child
    He got it at Girls Gone Wild
    No more meet and greet us
    He channelled a fetus
    His country and family defiled

    I was thinking..Didn't KO earn his nickname "bathtub boy" because umm he refused to report on the sex scanndel of Democrate?

    and look what I found and interview with Elizabeth Edwards and look how he is treating her? I wounder if they would have found emails from John to his gal pal..if Bathtub boy would have read them on a mocking voice? Of course we know the answer HELL NO!

    Something tells me that Gibson will do a few segments on Keithy and his hypocrisy.

    I don't know where to begin actually, when Keith wasn't gloating his ass off over Gov. Sanford's problems and getting turned on by reading those emails, the show was bascially all over the place. I have no idea how he managed to pull out an obsure Michael Palin show on there, but geez, he's really reaching for stuff. I'm sure no one got it or for that matter when, "What show is this?"

    I don't know what Keith was trying to do but that whole show was one big "bloated" gloat 'fest. His rant on the Worst Person was one for the ages. I guess it sucked when the Worst Person was right and Keith was his usual wrong self. He should RESIGN.

    You know I think Gov Sanford has shown a willful lack of judgment and a self-indulgence so frightening that the citizens of South Carolina should tar and feather him and run him out of the state. Let me be clear about THAT.

    However, how Olbermann can read Sanford's emails on national television in utter glee, is beyond me. How could he do that? I can't get through ONE of those emails, reading it to MYSELF, without feeling overwhelmed with embarrassment and dismay for his family! AND for Sanford himself! I'd feel exactly the same if it had been John Edwards' love letters that Olbermann read.

    I don't care how often Keith Olbermann goes on the air and tears up over the issue of gay marriage, if you have the sort of merciless-- do more harm if you can-- schadenfreude, that Keith Olbermann shamelessly displayed last night, there is something in you that is diseased and you need help.

    I don't know who or what happened to Mr. Olbermann at some point in his formative years, but I do know that there is no way anyone can have the sort of character that he revealed and also have happiness and any lasting peace.

    Uh oh. More disparaging remarks from the Kos Kids. I'm surprised KO didn't step in to reprimand the diarist. Plus DKos is a bastion of free speech, isn't it. It was interesting to see that many of those replying in defense of KO admitted to not even watching the show last night.

    The emails were out there, it was the way KO presented them and the absolute joy in which he presented them that disgusts me. In fact it creeped me out, kind of like an old man waiting outside a playground. Larry King read them also but didn't include pan flute background music or giggle and sleezily emphasize particular words as he read them.

    Earlier today Joe Scarborough was discussing last night's Sanford coverage and described "people on cable news shows who themselves have NO PLACE to be mocking other people." He used the word "glee" to describe the way some people on cable news shows were reacting, adding "some on this network..." I'd love to see another Scarborough/Olbermann shovel bout.

    It's good ol' Schadenfreude.....I have indulged in it myself and is an easy bad habit to pick up in the world today.

    For The Simpsons fans among us, Lisa taught Homer about it once....

    These types of stories seem to always bring the best out of bottom-dwellers like Keith Olbermann. Perhaps he'll be nominated for an Emmy finally?

    Another Kos diary ripping KO:

    "Keith and Rachel, please apologize regarding Sanford emails"

    One comment sums it up -
    "We're supposed to be better than that. It was wrong plain and simple. The fact that the emails were released was not their fault. The way they delivered their smug and sanctimonious presentation of the material went too far. I watched it on rerun and I actually felt more revulsion toward KO than I did toward the perp."

    Will KO reply?

    Olbermann has treated Elizabeth Edwards with the same sort of solemn reverence that he reveals for his mother.

    What's really troubling about Olbermann is that there's no doubt that if John Edwards had an (R) after his name, Olbermann would be acting in the same manner REGARDLESS of Mrs. Edwards.

    Here's a guy who argues that though MURDERING terrorists may MERIT it, the U.S.A. shouldn't use torture because WE are better than that.

    Yet there's not a moment where he will pull a punch out of common decency, and he justifies THAT by pointing at a contrarian's HYPOCRISY!

    I'm sorry, but there's no there... there. I wouldn't trust this guy to be decent to a dog when no one is looking, let alone ANY human being.

    Thank you for linking to Jack Dublin's diary at Kos, Ktt.

    This gentleman stated everything that needed to be said very eloquently and movingly.

    A muted mongrel on COUNTDOWN tonight?......

    "Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist and researcher at the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it's not provided by insurance.

    "Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn't seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he's proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.

    "The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if 'it's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.'"

    Oopsie! So ObamaCare for thee, but not for me? Hope and change, baby!

    If ObamaCare isn't good enough for Sasha, Malia, or Michelle, then it's not good enough for America. Instead of fighting that impulse, Obama should be working to boost the private sector to encourage more care providers, less red tape and expense, and better care for everyone.

    The above is earth-shattering news, IMHO....It exposes the left's hypocrisy in a soundbyte made for TV advertising and should be debated on any news program claiming to be of value.

    COUNTDOWN with Keith Olbermann?.....The motivation to protect the dear messiah from any negative press may still be too powerful...We will see....


    At the "newscast of record" for MSNBC, the cringe meter is off the scale: A creepy host gleefully reading creepy emails, in a creepy voice, with creepy background music. No additional medication or psychiatric care is going to help Keith's obvious complex mental disorders.

    Embarrassing to watch. Keith is the car wreck you must turn away from. Achieving pleasure at the expense of others is the definition of sadism. No additional medication or psychiatric care is going to help Keith's obvious complex, deep-seeded, mental disorders.

    I ALMOST pity Keith and his pathetic, miserable life. Almost.

    With KO doing this, sure he might have emarassed Sanford which maybe he deserves because he had no respecr for his wife or kids when he cheated and I think he is going to suffer for his actions. Whith that said, did KO and his producers STOP for just one second and think of his 4 sons and wife who had nothing to his actions, just out of the respect what those 5 people are living through this was totaly uncalled for and shows what a heatless asshole KO is... The showing of that clip from that show..was just bring his family into this and make them look like idiots was just disgusting! IF anyone would have dared to show something like during the Clinton sex scanddel with Hilalry and Chelsea would have booted of the air forever...

    FIRE KO!

    Something tells me that Gibson will do a few segments on Keithy and his hypocrisy.

    I'm currently listening to the Gibson show, he definately IS doing some segments on the Sanford love-letters.

    Gibby is having a great time reading the personal love letters via the
    " John Gibson Players".
    I guess Gibson came to the same determination that Olbermann and Maddow, et al , did. Sanford's love letters are worthy of public display and humiliation.

    Shame on John Gibson!

    As for Scarborough's comments, NewsBusters has the video

    Inside Cable News has some comments also:

    Well the thing that really pissed me off about KO was the clip from that show which really attacked the wife and kids. that had nothing to do with Sandford or the other woman in quetion. He directly went after the wife and kids that was the part that disgusted me.

    ObserverDan, say it ain't so!

    Also, I agree with your above post that Sanford should resign yesterday.

    Glenn Beck read a letter, too. He had mood lighting, candles, and a violinist on one of the balconies in Studio 12H (Beck/Fox Report/Greta in NY/Happening Now?).

    well atleast the people are consistent when it comes to these cheaters..cant be said the same for the left..remember what person does in their personel life....yad yad ayd//

    Wednesday ratings: Second in total viewers and the 25-54 demo at 8:00; second in 25-54 and third in total at 10:00. And the beat goes on, as the Whispers put it.

    KO had to comment on today's Kos diary calling for an apology from him:

    " Since you asked... (24+ / 0-)
    An apology?

    Hear that Mr. Somersby....

    Trust me. The only allegiance to 'higher principle' that Olbermann harbors is to the image of his own elitism.

    Oh, he may couch it in the progressive politics that became emblematic of the elect and select journos/beautiful people who he admired growing up, but it's really all about his ode to his own lofty perch far above the rest of the rabble.

    Olbermann is at heart not an iota more complicated than a thin-skinned bully, who loves nothing better than drawing a distinction between "elites" and "pariahs", between "us" and "them".

    That many progressives who do have ideals greater than themselves (and principles that aren't made flexible to the point of liquidity, depending upon politics of the people involved) now find Mr. Olbermann distasteful, is something that time will only enhance.
