How does the president’s signature disaster figure in the long-view of American politics?
Under growing pressure from conservatives and “tea party” activists, Sen. John McCain of Arizona is having to defend his record of supporting the government’s massive bailout of the financial system. In response to criticism from opponents seeking to defeat him in the Aug. 24 Republican primary, the four-term senator says he was misled by then-Treasury […]
Meltdown with Keith Olbermann, Part 32 ♦
Constant Countdown guest and obsequious suckup, Richard Wolffe, along with host Keith Olbermann last night proudly declared themselves to be less sophisticated than — Sarah Palin.
Either that or they showed they think Keith’s remaining audience is r— er, “challenged” and will fall for the crudest of propaganda techniques.
Last week, Keith Olbermann infamously broke into MSNBC’s coverage of Scott Brown’s acceptance speech with the exclamation “My God, he’s still talking!”
Brown dared to talk for about 20 minutes to gathered supporters who had helped him pull off a historic victory, which changed the landscape of the nation politically. To a large extent, we can [...]
Last week, we covered Keith Olbermann’s perhaps ultimate meltdown over first the possibility, then the actual election of Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate in Massachusetts.
To summarize, Keith began with this little gem on election eve:
OLBERMANN: In Scott Brown, we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against women [...]
I make a habit of not paying attention to Keith Olbermann much for the same reason I wouldn’t pay attention to a grimy, addlepated hobo on the streetcorner wearing a sandwich board that said ”Will Drop Pants for Food”. I think him about as intelligent as a pet rock and as sensible as a pair of 4-inch stiletto heels [...]
Levi Johnston, Governor Sarah Palin’s former son-in-law, continues to beg for attention.
Johnston fought to allow the custody matter to unfold in public, saying in a sworn statement that doing so would help put everyone on best behavior. He noted that Van Flein also represents Sarah Palin.
“I know that public scrutiny will simplify this matter and [...]
“Levi Johnston, a Sarah Palin whistleblower!” Keith Olbermann, MSNBC
Tomorrow night, Countdown with Keith Olbermann will air a not-so “special,” entitled “Countdown Favorites 2009.” Taking up 5 minutes of wasted space in this unrecoverable hour of a too short life, is a segment on an essential public figure.
That’s right, the high school hockey player whose only accomplishment [...]
- Levi Johnston: MSNBC Heartthrob
- Censoring Sarah Palin: Meltdown with Keith Olbermann Part 19
- David Forsmark’s “Meltdown with Keith Olbermann”
In his “Special Comment” urging “progressive” lawmakers to vote against the Obama/Reid health care plan and “kill the bill” because it does not immediately “destroy” private insurance in America, Keith Olbermann went over the top—even by Meltdown standards.
He not only challenged Barack Obama’s manhood in school playground terms, he also threatened the President with a [...]
