I heart this one, Tom. I really do.

Olberman the doberman. I hear he also said that Fox News was more dangerous than AlQaida or the KKK.

The guy is a loon. An honest to God out of his freaking mind loon.

Gmax

But since almost no one watches MSNBC it really does not matter that much. Yawn.

OLBERMANN:
That's about an inch from saying, "If you don't vote for me, you'll die," which is another inch from saying, "If you don't vote for me, I'll kill you."

Olbermann is really saying that you better do what Rudy says or he'll 'wack' you. Maybe Olbermann thinks all Italians are mafia killers at heart?

Cecil Turner
I'll come down on them like a ton of bricks. That's my job.
What a doofus. Like the rest of us really need a brain-wave like him to do our critical thinking. Sadly, there does seem to be a bit of a market for this sort of thing amongst those with minds agile enough to believe Pres Bush is responsible for 9/11. Unfortunately for Olbermann, it's a niche market, and comics like Bill Maher have it mostly sewn up.

He's also the go-to guy for the moonbats. I see him quoted endlessly.

I believe Keith got his start doing sports broadcasting.. a sports anchor in L.A.
I'm not sure how he got into political stuff on MSNBC.

The day Keith Olbermann finally realizes will be the day he sees the flash of light
over New York from Ft. Lee NY; and right before he's blinded; he'll think like Comic Store Man in the Simpson's take on Omega Man; "Man I wasted my life"

REWRITE:

Olbermann tried to out-moonbat the moonbats. He tried to get more viewers by talking about necon fascism as if another attack like the Reichstag fire were inevitable, suggesting that voting for anyone with an (R) would lead to more people getting killed. That's about an inch from saying, "If you don't vote Democrat, you'll die," which is another inch from saying, "If you don't vote Democrat, they'll pull another 9/11-like inside job." And that, to me, is not America. In fact, it's not Earth. I don't usually single out obscure cable talk show hosts for praise or brickbats, but if they're going to politicize terror, to do the work of the terrorists by terrorizing the populace, I'll come down on them like a ton of bricks. That's my job.

BumperStickerist

** That's about an inch from saying "If you don't vote for me, you'll die," which is another inch from saying, "If you don't vote for me, I'll kill you." **

I see Keith favors the non-Euclidean form of politics whereby you fold the graph paper around a ball, turn the ball into a donut shaped torus, and stretch and twist that shape until the graph shows the fanatics that want to kill all of us are an inch away from the candidate who's out that his rival doesn't consider that a problem.

Keith Olbermann: Geometer.

Gmax said: "But since almost no one watches MSNBC it really does not matter that much. Yawn."

According to TVNewser Obermann is increasing his ratings. NRO's media blog took notice of this also. While, I agree that he has a "niche" audience - too many lefty nutjobs are looking for a television icon to pair up with their web icon (Kos). Bill Maher just isn't quite "insane" enough, and Olby certainly is.

hit and run

I totally flubbed the REWRITE...

See the Cap'n who quotes Olbermann:

Al Qaeda really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than Al Qaeda — worse for our society. It’s as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was.

Yes, that damn Giuliani wants to protect us from another 9/11, while Olbermann wants to protect us from the Fox News Branch of the KKK.

Nuance. Measured in Inches.

HoosierHoops

oh also Keith was an anchor for ESPN sportscenter for 10 years..he left under a cloud..something bad happened..don't know the story about what the issue was.

I was thinking John Edwards: An inch away from saying, "If you don't vote for me you'll be a cripple," and two inches away from saying, "If you don't vote for me, I'll break your neck."

Not as bad as Al Gore personally killing you, but in the ballpark.

km

Greybeard, if you vote for me, I'll fix your stutter.

km

If you don't vote for me, I'll rip your tongue out.

MayBee

"If you don't vote for me, I'll kill you." And that, to me, is not America. In fact, it's not Earth.

It is in fact Earth. Can we think of leaders who actually have done such a thing. Why yes we can. Saddam Hussein killed people who didn't vote for him.

But he was just a strong man holding a difficult country together. Giuliani's fascist rhetoric is a real danger.

kim

You can't km, it fell out with all the laughing.
===================

Neo

Keith Olbermann is just a Jon Stewart wantabee.

Forbes

No wonder Playboy's circulation is in the dump--it's not even worth reading for the featured articles.

According to KO, pointing out terrorism and expressing an opinion on the implications thereof, is to do the work of terrorists, is itself, a train of thought devoid of reason--or even an argument. That KO spent eight minutes ranting on about such suggests a lack of logical coherence that is mind numbing--and apparently has that effect on his audience, even if growing--as he's watched by less than half the households that watches O'Reilly. (And I don't watch either.)

Cheers.

SmokeVanThorn

This is what happens when someone spends years as a jocksniffer.

BOATBUILDER

Olbermann is neither looney nor stupid. He does not believe a word of the stuff he spews out. Watch him sometime (if you can stand it). It would be too hard to maintain his tone of smirking superiority if he had to justify intellectually (to himself) such nonsense.
What Olbermann has done is to discover and pander to a market niche--there are more than enough moonbats who can be counted on to buy his stuff--as well as teens and other "young skulls full of mush" who respond to the tone rather than the substance--to keep his ratings high enough to earn him a good, steady living. And they are less likely to call him on his crap than the sports fan contingent, who can tell that he's full of it because they actually watch the games.

Neo
So when Keith Olbermann says that George Bush is a gathering threat to democracy and the US Constitution, and so on, he is one inch from saying that if we don't depose George Bush we will die, and two inches from saying that Keith Olbermann will personally kill us.

Leave it to MSNBC to have a wantabee jock that wants to kill us.

My email to NBC:

Hi,

Please remember: It's "Are you ready for some football?" Not are you ready for some Olbermann.

Olbermann comes on the air, I click the channel. It's as simple as that.

Untrustworthy. Full of it.

Heh! (To quote the Instapundit.) Doesn't it figure that the NBC email feedback address fails:

While I do not agree with everything Oberman says I also do not agree with everything Oriley says either. Truth lies somewhere in the middle. I personally read and listen to both conservative and liberal news, both sides make valid points. The only way to to make an informed decision on any matter in the news is to listen to what both sides say and then draw your own conclusion.

Ulyanovsk, Russia Gov. Sergei Morozov has decreed Sept. 12 a Day of Conception and is giving couples time off from work to procreate. Couples who give birth nine months later on Russia's national day — June 12 — will receive money, cars, refrigerators and other prizes.

Does Al Gore Know about this ?

Cecil Turner

Truth lies somewhere in the middle.

Sorry, but I'm having a hard time seeing this as a conservative-liberal divide issue. Olbermann seems to find it offensive that someone running for president--the main duty of which is national defense--would claim the people would be safer voting for him. That's such a stupidly wrongheaded premise that no possible compromise can lead from there to the truth. Moreover, the idea that it's "his job" to castigate politicians . . . or that the rest of us are waiting with bated breath for his delivered wisdom, is so much nonsense. At best this is entertainment.

If your point is that O'Reilly has said something as stupid, I'd probably accept that. (And if someone feels like digging one up, we can all have a laugh at it.) Don't see how it could be a lot farther off-base than this drivel, though.

Chants

"[B]ut really - anyone listening to Al Gore for more than a nanosecond ought to be ruled a suicide."

Classic TM.

PeterUK

My worry is what the centrefold of Olberman looks like.

Darclay

Sorry, but I'm having a hard time seeing this as a conservative-liberal divide issue.

Maybe those were the wrong terms to use. I was just stating that opposing viewpoints are necessary to be informed. No one has all the answerers right all of the time. But your point was well taken about all having a laugh.

Terry Gain

That's about an inch from saying, "If you don't vote for me, you'll die," which is another inch from saying, "If you don't vote for me, I'll kill you."

Keith Olberman. Two inches from insanity.

Olbermann comes on the air, I click the channel. It's as simple as that.

Ditto.

Patrick R. Sullivan

This just isn't liberals' day. Turns out that Hsu would stand up and walk out on the friends he was getting by with a little help from. The same guys who bankrolled the original Woodstock festival:

A company controlled by Mr. Hsu recently received $40 million from a Madison Avenue investment fund run by Joel Rosenman, who was one of the creators of the Woodstock rock festival in 1969. That money, Mr. Rosenman told investors this week, is missing.

Mr. Hsu told Mr. Rosenman the money would be used to manufacture apparel in China for Gucci, Prada and other private labels, yielding a 40% profit on each deal, according to a business plan obtained by the Journal. Now the investment fund, Source Financing Investors, says Mr. Hsu's company owes it the $40 million, which represents 37 separate deals with Mr. Hsu's company. When Source Financing recently attempted to cash checks from the company, Components Ltd., the investors say they were told the account held insufficient funds.

Smart...very smart guys.

Patton

Something tells me Olbermann will soon admit to breaking his own bones as a child to get attention.

miriam

I personally don't need Giuliani to scare me. I'm already scared. I've been scared for 6 years and 1 day, since the World Trade Center came down. Reality scares me.

Walter

Cecil Turner

Reality scares me.

At least it's logical to fear an attack (though the probability is such that it probably ought not drive one's daily decisions). Contrast that with this stupidity from Clinton:

"But, if certain things happen between now and the election, particularly with respect to terrorism, that will automatically give the Republicans an advantage again, no matter how badly they have mishandled it, no matter how much more dangerous they have made the world."

Clinton added that if such a scenario occurred, she is the best Democratic presidential candidate "to deal with that."

She, like Olbermann, apparently considers an attack that kills people only a threat as it would affect the political chances of Dem candidates. And there's simply no way to have a rational discussion with that as a premise.

bio mom

I must quarrel with the idea that truth lies somewhere in the middle. Then it wouldn't be truth. It is one thing or another. It cannot be both. It brings to mind the words of Christ. "Be hot or cold, but if you are lukewarm I will vomit you out." Now different people may see the truth differently but what I find the most disquieting are people who waffle around looking for a squishy middle in serious matters, for example, our national security. I am pretty hawkish overall. But I respect those anti-war folks who SERIOUSLY believe that their truth is correct. I just vehemently disagree with them. Olbermann's way though is snide, viscious, and ill-informed. He ignores the facts for his ideology many times.

__________________________________
point one: that jesus quote was about your faith in god not politics. he was admonishing a lukewarm church..enough of religion now...I think the point about dicerning truth being in the middle means this:
most people aren't hard core conservatives or liberals.. I think alot of Americans are pretty moderate in thier views..that's not to equate that to 'truth' but rather actions.
I think the Pols understand that.. they preach to the base but in the election run to the middle for votes. noteable exceptions..districts that are heavily GOP or Democratic.. but on a national level they run close to the middle..( until elected )

I'm just surprised KO actually believes there are terrorists. I thought the dem meme is there is no GWOT erfo no terrorists. Maybe he just slipped up.

MarkD

I'm stunned. Olby was publicly outed as a lousy lay by a woman in a position to know. So he gives an interview to Playboy!

Shouldn't he be reading it for the articles instead? Self parody or an act - I'm not sure.

kazoolist

Brilliant. So the question becomes who do I think has a better chance of being able to carry out their "two-inch-away" threat of killing me ... I'm going to have to go with Rudy, he just seems more feisty than Gore or Pelosi.

James Marsden

Can someone, somewhere, please explain to me how a failed sportscaster who is duller than a turd gets a 1 hour time slot at 8 PM to air bad stories, leftist paranoia, and weird music combined with ridiculous commentary based on nothing?

And why is MSNBC still on the air? The only thing they have on is "To Catch a Predator" reruns and tours of assorted prisons around the country. You can see the same kind of crap on Court TV.

Tom - its your logic that will be regarded as the main reason that America fails. You can't grasp the concept if you convolute the premise and then condemn the logic as logic when it is really only observation. If these are the lengths you'll go to to defend the idiots that are destroying this country, make sure you get credit for helping...Olbermann only touches the nerve - you drink the kool aid and celebrate the failures, the incompetence and the intolerance. Hardly the America my father fought for in WWII...

Cecil Turner

Tom - its your logic that will be regarded as the main reason that America fails.

Dang, now it's Tom's logic's fault? How many degrees of separation did you need to come up with that brilliant observation?

Hardly the America my father fought for in WWII...

Yeah, in that America, we could put tens of thousands of innocents in relocation camps, conduct mass executions of unlawful combatants, and firebomb or nuke our enemies without having to listen to whining from the bleeding hearts chorus. Nowadays those who wear their lack of service as a badge of honor give bad advice whilst citing their fathers' martial deeds to give their prattling special weight.

So yeah, things are going to hell in a handbasket.

Olbermann is a whack job, period..I remember him saying he left his job at ESPN in Bristol, Conn. as being too remotely located because he won't drive a car..Moron

My word!

KO was on MNFB again this evening and spouting his "worst something in the world". Should he ever really take a deep look at himself, he would see the worst person in the world in his own heart and soul. His bitter, vile comments come from the bile in his gut...he has no redeeming value. I will be avoiding NBC football pre-game, etc. as much as possible. I can't even stand to look at the the smarmy smirk on his face. What an A..hole!

Levitra about

Levitra is another brother alternative of the ED drugs like Viagra and Cialis, as most of us must be knowing. The main feature of levitra about is that it has been proved to be harmless for people with minor heart problems. This is a category that most of the other ED drugs have failed in. The other ED drugs cannot be administered to people with heart troubles unlike Levitra. Hence slowly but steadily Levitra too, is gaining momentum in the popularity charts, mainly because of this advantage that it possesses.
