And to Keith:
You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
You're a bad banana
With a greasy black peel.
You're a monster, Mr. Grinch.
Your heart's an empty hole.
Your brain is full of spiders,
You've got garlic in your soul.
I wouldn't touch you, with a
thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
You're a vile one, Mr. Grinch.
You have termites in your smile.
You have all the tender sweetness
Of a seasick crocodile.
Given the choice between the two of you
I'd take the seasick crockodile.
You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch.
You're a nasty, wasty skunk.
Your heart is full of unwashed socks
Your soul is full of gunk.
The three words that best describe you,
are, and I quote: "Stink. Stank. Stunk."
You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch.
You're the king of sinful sots.
Your heart's a dead tomato splot
With moldy purple spots,
Your soul is an apalling dump heap overflowing
with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable
Mangled up in tangled up knots.
You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch.
With a nauseaus super-naus.
You're a crooked jerky jockey
And you drive a crooked horse.
You're a three decker saurkraut and toadstool
With arsenic sauce.

He asked all the right questions about war crimes. I was beginning to wonder if he was ever going to go down that road. This is something that will get my undivided attention.
If he feels the need to be obsessed with something, or someone, then this is definitely the route to take. In fact, a special comment should be done about this. Leave out the "sirs" and just throw the Dick in jail.
The shoe tossing was hilarious. I loved it. Joel McHale is great but I don't think Keith can handle having a shoe thrown at him. He was too quick to say "dammit". Something tells me he's not a team player. And it wouldn't surprise me if he blasted the person who did it once he was off the air. Though, from my point of view, watching a shoe being thrown at Keith was the highlight of the evening.
Monday, December 8, 2008
I'll tell you what's funny on Countdown. Watching Keith with the sound down. He can't just read the news he has to act it out. Which in turn, makes him look like a cartoon character. Or someone who is trying really really hard to be like Jim Carrey.
Anyway, I have an idea for Keith. Since he deemed it necessary to write a book about all those "special comments" he did, then wouldn't it be more up his alley to write one about BillO? He seems to know a great deal about the guy. Hell, he probably spends more time on him than BillO's wife does.
It would sell.
But going back to his mentioning of Jay Leno getting his own political comedy show. Something tells me that Keith is going to throw a big hissy fit if that show cuts into his repeat face time. I hope he does...and I hope it backfires on him big time. This would prove once and for all just how low Keith is willing to go for his own purpose.
On a different subject. Who the hell is cutting his hair? It looks terrible. The sides and the back are really short and the top is too long. It lays over the back as if he's wearing a toupee. I'm guessing it's not a professional cut.
And really, since when is Keith a defender of not calling a woman a broad? Not that I've ever heard him say it out loud, but someone like him probably has thought it from time to time and/or has said it in private.
But then, him defending anybody that doesn't directly appeal to him makes him a liar. I don't care how many "heavy sighs" he throws out there...it's all fake.
Thursday, December 4, 2008
He negotiated for a bigger contract and got it, but in order for them to give it to him they have to fire a lot of people. Do you think Keith cares about that? Hell no.
I've said time and again that if you fell down in front of him on the sidewalk he would just step over you. He's just as bad as BillO, if not worse.
I will never believe that Keith is a nice person. All you have to do is pay attention to the things he says and his actions. He contradicts himself a lot and people fall for it. I did for a while, but then I realized that he would let you die if it meant his life would be saved.
That makes him a coward. And one greedy s.o.b.
There is no way you can find justice in this mess. If you think that Keith deserves all that money at the expense of others' livelihoods then you obviously have never been pushed out so that the fat cat can get paid.
Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Though Countdown wasn't that bad Tuesday night it just wasn't that good. There needs to be some changes. Either that or Keith needs to start asking the right questions.
Maybe he could study Rachel's techniques and learn from her. But God forbid he learn from a woman, so I guess that's out of the question.
I'm thinking maybe it's Keith's overwhelming desire to bash that he's forgotten how to report. I can remember a time where he would tell you the story as it is and not as it should be. But then, that was during the time before he became extremely involved with himself.
He's perfect and anybody who disagrees with that is his enemy. That's who he's become and that's the direction his show has taken.
Who knows, maybe he could bring back the soundbites of the day. Those were pretty good. Or rearrange some things. Move WPiTW between the 5th and 4th stories and add a longer 3rd story. And get a better 2nd story.
Something needs to happen or his show is going to go down the drain.

Oh, I keep forgetting. Keith doesn't have a girlfriend. He has an object. And she is almost always referred to as THE girlfriend. Niiiiiice.
Let me see if I can get this straight. THE girlfriend has to work Thanksgiving so they are going out to eat. So he has no family? She has to work so he's not going to go to his family for Thanksgiving???????? Oh, that's just sad.
So Keith sacrifices his family for her. How romantic.
She cooked last year. I wonder what it was she cooked. Did she cook and then take it over to his family's place?
This is very curious.
You gotta love this guy. He's the epitome of what not to do in life. If you ever feel your life sucks, just take a listen to Keith from time to time and you would think your life is grand.
Sunday, November 23, 2008
He can't say one week that he has to remember to be nice and then turn around and sell himself as Mr. Homemaker. It doesn't work that way.
If he's trying to convince people that he's in love it won't wash either. He's had two years to do that and failed miserably. What makes you think that all of a sudden he's been domesticated?
I'm sure there are people out there that will buy this kind of nonsense, and that's okay. I mean, Bill O'Reilly sells snake oil all the time and has a huge following. One bigger than Keith's.
But I'll have to say that if Keith continues to feed the public his deliciously rich morsels of stupidity then I may never shut down my site. It's just too damn good.
So thank you Keith for giving us more reasons to call you an idiot.
Wednesday, November 19, 2008
There's not much tension, anger and frustration.
That should tell you something right there.
I don't watch Countdown that much anymore. It's become ridiculous and mundane. In fact, it's like watching reruns all the time.
I noticed that the ratings have gone back down as well. BillO still holds the lead. I guess that Keith's appearance on The View didn't give him a bounce. It could be that a lot of women didn't find him worth checking out.
Not to mention the fact that most people watched the end of the Tennessee game and then 60 minutes instead FNiA Sunday. I know I did.
Obama takes precedent over Keith. And peace takes over the internet when Keith is gone.
So it's a win win situation this week.

But I've analogized it here many times to my days in sports.
When I found myself personally invested in the athletes I covered - had a meal with some, professionally friendly, that sort of stuff - there was actually a drag on my willingness to criticize them on the air.
And I felt it again last spring (ironically enough) about criticizing Senator Clinton (yes, I know her supporters will spit soup over this). But you may recall I was accused, as late as January, of being "in the tank for Hillary," and even that slightest personal connection provided by the Clintons' support of The Special Comments made me hesitate or delay my criticism.
I think that voting for a candidate would create the same investment for me. I doubt anybody else would feel that way, but that's my standard.
And yes, if circumstances demanded that I had to walk on the edge of the cliff, and vote, I would do so.

by Keith Olbermann on Fri Nov 14, 2008 at 01:24:39 PM PST
I don't really care if Keith votes or not. There are a lot of people that don't. But his reasoning behind it is lame. It's as if he thinks that if he votes for a candidate then he's automatically their friend. And they should go out to dinner together. Or he should be invited to their parties.
That's just plain ridiculous. Who the hell does he think he is?
I think it's funny that he keeps explaining this in this manner. Sports and politics are two different things. Nobody said you had to rub elbows with a politician just because you voted for them.
If anything, it would give him more reason and a better position to go after them if they screw up. Nobody has to know whether you voted for them or not.
God, what a dumbass.
Thursday, November 13, 2008
"People automatically like her," he says. "She's very nice, aggressively nice. I'm nice when I take the time to remember to be nice. Sometimes the door opens and I throw a punch."
If you have to take the time to remember to be nice then you're not a nice person.
Oh, and Keith said he works out three times a week. Really? When did he start? Yesterday? Or is it food related work outs? He's still fat.
But his weight isn't what makes me queasy about him. It's his attitude towards others. He could be the most goodlooking guy in the world but if his attitude doesn't match his looks then it makes him ugly. Hence the fact that he can't "remember" to be nice. And if you think he's joking think again. This isn't the first time he's stated that he's not a nice person.
I don't care if he's a "voice" to the people who needs that voice, his attitude goes against everything that Obama stands for.
And the fact that he renegotiates his contract in a time where millions of Americans are suffering. Do you think he cares? Hell no he doesn't. Just as long as he can feed his big fat head, you don't matter. But he'll make you think that he does.
Actions speak louder than words Keith. Stop all your gibberjabbing and spend that money on helping those who need it more than you do.
Monday, November 10, 2008
I almost laughed at this drama but I have to agree with the content. However, Keith is the last person to be speaking on behalf of love.
And forgive me but "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is something he can say but not understand. If he truly understood those words and took them to heart, the way he actually says it, then he would have to apologize to every person he has belittled, betrayed and cheated in the past several years.
He is the most unreliable spokesperson for justice. You can't tell me that suddenly he's become this wonderful person who has turned his life around and has repented, especially when in the same breath he goes straight to bashing BillO..or anybody else that isn't himself.
This so called special comment sounded more like he was crying more for his own love life than for those to whom he was commenting on.
It was absolutely horrible.
Um, Keith has been angry for a very long time. Just because the country was angry for the past two years doesn't mean there hasn't been people out there, before then, talking about how angry he's always been.
He likes to think that his career started two years ago, and in a sense maybe it did, but Keith has had opposition for a very long time.
Hell, when he first started Countdown I could see the anger in him. He was an asshole then and he still is. Actually, even more so now because he thinks he's the king of cable "news".
If I was him I wouldn't be tooting my horn too loudly. I've said it before and I'll say it again, 2 million viewers out of 300 million people in this country doesn't even make a percentage.
It doesn't warrant an uppity attitude and an holier than thou approach to his so called standings in the media.
After the skit on SNL his ratings didn't really go up that much. Do you think he's going to have a huge bounce with his visit on The View? I don't. I think some people will check it out long enough to see how incredibly obsessed he is with bashing people and will turn it off. He's kind of like the Don Rickles of news but not as funny.
It's been seen that when Keith gets bigger money and bigger exposure he becomes more of a dickhead. And usually when that happens with anybody they wind up slitting their own throats.
Keith has more scar tissue than anyone can keep up with. So he might want to keep that blade handy.

Some very wonderful and unexpected changes have taken place in my life in the past several days, so this could be the beginning of the end.
I will keep you posted.
Tuesday, November 4, 2008
Keith's ego is way too sensitive for me to believe that he laughed at that skit. I think it hurt his feelings. I think he's just trying to cover it up. Which really is a good thing. It would just be worse for him if he showed his hurt over it.
In no way shape or form was that skit flattering. It was very demeaning and made you never want to see this guy in person. Ever.
But trainwrecks are trainwrecks. People love to watch disasters play out. Why, I don't know, but that's just human nature, I guess. So this could boost his ratings. People will want to watch why he's so insecure.
Maybe that's why they watch BillO. They know he's going to crash eventually and are just waiting for it to happen so they can say they witnessed it.
Funny thing, though, is that if you look at this on a grand scale, neither Keith nor BillO will get nearly as many viewers as SNL. And I suspect not many people knew who the hell Ben Affleck was portraying.

Republicans fight like that. This is not a Republican site.
I appreciate all my viewers and commenters but attacks against one another isn't acceptable.
Monday, October 13, 2008
That wild and crazy guy Frum was on her show to talk politics but instead felt this overwhelming desire to bash Rachel and the way she does her show. Well, Rachel wasn't gonna let him get off that easy.
He tried to change the subject a few times but Rachel kept going back to the dudes' opening argument and, frankly, she dogged his ass.
Way to go girl.
If that happened to Keith he wouldn't be able to handle it.
Thanks But Reports Of My Demise... (19+ / 0-)
...have been greatly exaggerated.
Possible strep throat - first words out of the doctor's throat when he saw mine on Friday. But the traditional effect (feels like you're a rookie fire swallower and you don't know any of the tricks yet) was gone within a few hours of the application of Enough Drugs To Kill Rasputin.
We have lingering congestion, cough, wooziness but I'm going to give it a try today largely because I cannot sit around here again today, not with Richard Lewis due in the studio and Hockey Highlights to show.
Plus McCain's going back on Letterman Thursday so I suppose I have to be on standby in case he bails out again.
Also, watch our debate coverage. I'm on until 20 seconds before they start and again 20 minutes after they end...

by Keith Olbermann on Mon Oct 13, 2008 at 07:59:17 AM PDT
on edit: 5:12: Keith also stated he "couldn't sit around here again today". Hmm, he must not like being at home much anymore. Use to be he couldn't stay at work much. Now he can't stand be away from it. Obviously, Richard Lewis and Hockey highlights are more important than his health and his gf.
Oh well, I guess he knows his priorities.
Sunday, October 12, 2008
Hell, she probably brought it home from one of her party nights out. Poor Keith, he's just getting old and sick...er.
I know he's a comedian, but the way he talks about Keith makes it seem as if all Keith was to him was a fill-in when they were desperate.
But hell, we already knew that. Of course, Keith probably doesn't see it that way. He plugged away about it but what I saw, in video, was Letterman doing most of the talking and Keith listening.
Keith was a live stage prop for Letterman to vent his frustrations at. That's all he was and nothing more. But, it's publicity for Keith. And for Keith, that's all that counts.
Monday, October 6, 2008
If I remember correctly Keith said he wasn't going to bring politics into sports. Well, I guess that was a lie. He apparently can't seem to get very far without making fun of Sarah Palin.
Sure, she's an idiot but sometimes you just have to let it go Keith. Especially when you're playing a different game.
It's one thing to degrade a politician, and I don't have a problem with that, but when Keith degrades a woman politician it just makes him look even worse than what he already does.
I think if it had been anybody else it probably wouldn't be so bad. But Keith has a reputation of lowering standards for women, period. So the things he says about any woman that isn't on the "kind" side will always be scrutinized and picked apart. Even more so during sports.
It's not the people's fault that they pick on him. It's his fault for creating this kind of image. And he continues to do it.
Hence the fact that he's a chauvinist. He can't leave the woman out of the experience. Not that Palin has experience but it's the fact that she doesn't belong in sports highlights.
Where's that separation Keith? You know, the part where you said you would never talk politics while doing sports? Is it just too difficult for you to maintain any kind of professionalism in anything you do professionally? Your attempt at humor has become lame and downright inhuman.
Get a life. Because you obviously do not have one.
Saturday, October 4, 2008
He was talking about this creepy guy that apparently has a "thing" for Sarah Palin. But what struck me was Keith's mention of the guy possibly masturbating in front of the t.v. and the fact that the look on Keith's face was that of a very guilty person.
You should read Marinara's comment at KOE's site. LOL.
Monday, September 29, 2008
If he was so good at placing people in the right positions, what the hell happened to Katy? I could almost guarantee you that if Rachel wasn't gay he wouldn't have had any input.
Women scare him. It's not that he doesn't like women because he does. He's just terrified of them.
But putting that aside, just for the moment, Katy could learn a thing or three from Rachel. First thing she could learn is how to dress properly on air.
On one side of her still-bare office hang about a dozen suits in varying shades of black and gray, her on-air uniform."It is a rainbow of monochrome," acknowledged Maddow, who dresses off-air like a gangly teenager in baggy jeans and sneakers. "I just want to meet a basic threshold of what you're supposed to look like on television so it's not a topic of concern or discussion."
The second thing she could learn is to relax. I feel sorry for her sometimes because she's not getting the proper education she needs to become a good news reporter. And Keith had the audacity to talk about women and credibility? I think he needs to sum up his own credibility before making such a stupid statement.
"There is a different set of standards regarding women and credibility and aggressiveness on the air," he said. "And Rachel manages to keep her credibility and her forcefulness and obviously her intelligence, but there's also just a fundamental likability that really works to her advantage."
That's very chauvinistic of him, isn't it? Was he trying to compare her to the women on FOX? Or even to Katy? There are news women all over this world with a great deal more credibility than he has.
He needs to quit while he's behind.
Rachel, though, had me riveted. She's very informative and breaks everything down. And isn't afraid to talk to the scary Republicans. I enjoyed the show a lot.
Unlike Keith who spends more time on himself and bashing those who don't fit his mold. She clearly IS the breath of fresh air.
It may just be me but ever since the party girl moved in with Keith he's forgotten how to live. It use to be that he would call in sick quite often at work, but now he spends more time working.
Is it that he doesn't want to spend time with her? Think about it.
When he didn't have a girlfriend he didn't work that much. Now that he does, he's never at home..with her. They're never "photographed" together. And you never hear about her with him when the rags rag on him.
Keith is a sick puppy that will never heal. But thank God for Rachel because without her MSNBC would truly suck.
Thursday, September 25, 2008
Letting Keith loose on politics is like giving the car keys to an alcoholic. He doesn't know what the hell he's doing.
Countdown has become boring and predictable. I actually miss the stupid fluff stories on celebrities. And oddball is almost non existent.
Hopefully, after the election, Countdown will go back to what it use to be. I'm not holding my breath on it though.
Sunday, September 21, 2008
By him doing that it just solidifies the fact that he can't relate to your average American. He wants to "fit in" but he makes too much money, which, by the way, he makes it known quite often.
How can you trust somebody to help those less fortunate when someone so obviously rich is making it a point to show you how rich he is? Just because he donated to the "special" needs people doesn't make him a "good" person. He obviously needed a reason to do it. Otherwise, he wouldn't have done it.
The show was lame. But the worst of it goes to Keith's attempt to make everybody think he really cares.
Friday, September 19, 2008
Keith has no shame. So I would guess that he's trying to make himself feel better. If she continues to knock him down in the ratings he won't be applauding her that loudly. Eventually everybody will tune him out and turn him off. Mostly because they'll get tired of his whining and bashing and fighting with co-workers.
He just can't hold a candle to her where personality and attitude are concerned. She's nice and he's just plain mean.
However, he might want to be paying more attention to his little girl rather than being so concerned about his ratings.
Thursday, September 18, 2008
I'm starting to think that there are more on the internet who dislike Keith than there are those who like him.
He gets over a million viewers each night but the majority of these viewers don't spend that much time on the internet praising him.
Maybe they figure the numbers speak loudly enough. I suspect that most of his viewers are Democrats..and that's good, but they're not going out and spreading the word. If they were, maybe Obama's ratings would be higher.
Countdown, though, has been kind of boring. Oddball has gone downhill and Keith's constant attacks on anybody Republican is getting old. How many different ways can you tell the same story?
I've been saying this for a long time; too much of a good thing isn't a good thing.
However, I did notice that Rachel's ratings have surpassed Keith's. This is a good thing. I think her show is much better than Keith's and she brings better snarkiness than he could ever do.
She's just better all around. So Keith might want to be careful. Rachel may just push him to the curb.
Monday, September 15, 2008
I didn't watch much of it last week but what I did see was embarrassing. Not to me, mind you, but to all the adult males in this country.
Keith's childish behavior kept me from watching it. The giggling was incredible. And the stupid things that Keith would say was unbearable.
I did listen to Dan and Keith on the radio but that doesn't count. Why, you ask? Because most of their time was spent talking about their personal lives. And Dan chastising Keith for this or that.
Anyway, I decided to watch a little bit more of it last night and something just didn't seem right.
Keith looked out of place. His shtick wasn't funny and it's getting old.
If this is the so called "magic" that everybody's been hooting about then those people lived some very dull lives. I was expecting something really spectacular. Guess I was disappointed again.
Hell, I would say the only magic I saw going on was between Dan, Cris and Bob.
Keith doesn't fit in. He's become too much of a "liberal media" type to pull off sports. People look at him and think Democrat not football.
I'm not saying he doesn't have the right to do it. I'm just saying he's built himself a bad reputation in the "news market" to be selling sports in any fashion. And the only magic he's going to find is in his copies of his Harry Potter books.

Money, Job, Baseball, Kos, Football(Dan Patrick), Katy.
If Keith's boss..es came to him and told him that he would have to get rid of Katy in order to maintain his job status he would be upset but I think the choice would be very clear.
If he had to make a choice between Kos and Katy Kos would win.
If she told him she would leave him if he didn't stop doing Football he would tell her, "There's the door, but let me remind you of how difficult it's going to be out there without me."
That's the way people like him think. She is not a significant part of his life. He knows that he's at a point in his life where he can have just about any woman he chooses, and it wouldn't surprise me if he's dangled that in her face a time or two.
Poor thing. She's so not getting it. But I think she will...eventually.

(thank you KOE)
Okay, so maybe we've been looking at this all wrong. It's not so much a "demotion" as it is a more relaxed chance to speak his mind.
I don't buy into the pressures of the Republicans to get him out of the anchor chair during the debates and the election. If you recall, Hillary's camp bitched about the same things that the Republicans did. Is she a Republican?
I don't think that has anything to do with it. I think Keith's opinions and his constant bickering with co-workers played a huge role in this decision. And I don't believe for one minute that it was Keith's idea to move.
All that being said, the questions remain. Can Keith give his opinions without being a dickhead to his colleagues? Can he even argue his points?
We all know that he won't bring on any opposing points of view on his show. Now he has no control over who he is to encounter during these periods. Can he live up to these challenges without having a heart attack?
I say, let's not get angry over the move(not that I was) and embrace his opportunities to show just exactly how well he can handle it.
He's been challenged. Let's see if he can maintain professionalism while defending the Democrats and putting the Republicans where they belong.
He said last night that he was going to revisit the 9/11 video this week. I'm looking forward to it.
I am a Democrat and I will defend my right, and I will defend Keith's right, to say that the showing of that video was wrong in so many ways.
Don't get me wrong on this post. I still find Keith to be the biggest jerk around, and I will continue to dog his ass on a regular basis, because he has the worst foot in mouth disease I have seen in anybody, but when it comes to politics the Republicans need to go. They are going to get us all killed if we don't do something about it.
Do I feel sorry for her? Sometimes. But most of the time I think she should've known better than to jump into bed with someone she didn't even know.
Now she's paying the price for many past sad days and many more sad days to come. Eventually, she'll be the one who will need the psychiatrist.
Monday, September 8, 2008
It can't be fun being in Keith's skin right now. But then, I figure it wouldn't be fun being Keith period.
I don't see a "special comment" coming. According to this article, Keith is out of politics...more or less.

20 hours a day of Convention Coverage.
Obama PR office releases - to the media of the world - the entirety of Obama's speech, 45 minutes in advance of him giving it, no "embargo," no "HFR" (Hold For Release).
I read 90 seconds of portions of it to try to get its tone. CNN reads portions, too.
The entirety of the speech is posted on this website before the excerpts are out of my mouth.
Therefore, I'm "trying to make" Obama's words mine?
How do you explain McCain's PR office, releasing 90 seconds worth of his speech - making its own editorial choices about what we'll see and what we won't - three hours before the speech, and all of us in the media reading/posting the excerpts.
I appreciate the support throughout this diary, but this post contradicts the writer's point that I was somehow not acting in the role of journalist at the convention. The release of the text of his speech, in advance, was by definition news and needed to be revealed and analyzed as quickly as possible.
By the way, we're still talking about a political speech here, not an advance copy of the last Harry Potter book being used as a spoiler.

by Keith Olbermann on Mon Sep 08, 2008 at 08:52:50 AM PDT
Okay, who came away from this comment with the sound of "whine" in their head? The bold sentence was one of the stupidest things he could've said in the context of this comment.
Um, no, you were not acting the role of journalist at the convention. If you were you wouldn't have been such a dickhead towards your colleagues. And would be anchoring the debates.
Oh, wait, I forgot. It was YOUR idea to not do the anchoring. Jeez, how could I forget something like that so soon?
I had the feeling that his attitude during the conventions was gonna get him in trouble. And it doesn't surprise me that he would say "it was his idea" to make that move. Because you see, nothing is ever Keith's fault but everything is his idea.
"Phil and I have debated this set-up since late winter/early spring (with me saying, 'Are you sure this flies?' and him saying, 'Yes, but let's judge it event by event') and I think we both reached the same point during the RNC," Olbermann said by e-mail.
Of course you did. But at what point did Phil say, "Keith, you've gone too far and we can't have this sort of thing going on. So I'm taking you off of the lead and making you a flunky, along with Chris."
The fact is, Keith can't get along with anybody..and this goes with his live-in. He doesn't know how to maintain that focus on humanity. He doesn't know how to handle his sudden rise to stardom. And he can't function outside his own mind/ego.
One of the main problems with this whole entire situation is his association with Kos. I'm not saying Kos is a bad place but it's not a place for someone like Keith.
People who talk too much never listen. And they sure as hell don't understand. That is Keith in a nutshell.
He's so busy trying to make himself the best anybody has ever encountered but that causes him to miss the aroma of the roses. Which, in turn, feeds the haters and makes them the happiest people on earth.
Hmm, maybe that's what he wants. Misery loves company?
My advice? You need to stop providing everybody with so much information about yourself. Do your job and get away from Kos.
And try try try to give an opinion without being an asshole towards your colleaques.

This was what Keith said about all those balloons around Andrea Mitchell.
Here's an old guy who has no children and lives with a girl young enough to be his child. So I'm thinking he took her to Chuck E. Cheese several times. How else would he know what goes on there? Unless he goes by himself. And that I would believe.

Some of these commenters don't realize that we will never forget 9/11. But they seem to think that we need to be reminded constantly. What they don't understand is that we know that they are using those deaths just to get their fucking votes.
I am so sick and tired of these people thinking that democrats are stupid. What happened on 9/11 happened to everybody. Not just Republicans or Democrats.
Everybody was united until Bush felt this urge to go to Iraq instead of seeking out Bin Laden and destroying the terrorists.
Can these Republicans actually believe that those who aren't Republicans want this sort of thing to happen again? If they do, then they are sadly mistaken. We just don't want Iraq to keep taking us away from the true targets.
From what I can see, the Republicans are cowards by invading a country that had nothing to do with threats against America.

It's hard for a dictionary to describe what happiness truly is but it's close. What they don't mention is that happiness comes from the inside out not the outside in.
I bring this up because Keith stated on numerous occasions that he's the happiest he's ever been. Really? He could've fooled me. Happy people generally don't belittle and berate others in order to make themselves feel better. That's called low self esteem. How can someone be happy if they are constantly hurting others? Well, okay, then that would be sadomasochism. Would it not?
I have yet to see Keith's great happiness. Laughing doesn't constitute happiness. Snapping at your colleagues doesn't either. So where is this happiness he was so inclined to share with others?
I don't see it and I don't hear it. Especially not in the past couple of weeks. His smug attitude towards others, and his insatiable desire to have his ass kissed by Kos, is a clear sign of someone who is not content.
So maybe Keith is both. A sadomasochist and has low self esteem. It's been obvious that he loves to hurt people's feelings. Maybe he gets off on other people's pain. And it's been pretty obvious that his low self esteem has awarded him "new" friends he can call his own. Friends who will praise him to the point of his great smugness.
I just don't believe that Keith knows what happiness is. Unless his kind of happiness is misery. And I say, well, if misery is your calling, Keith, then you should go all out.

Chicago: I saw you this morning on C-SPAN with the panel including Arianna Huffington and Peggy Noonan. I tuned in late, so I did not see the entire discussion, but I saw you mention how disturbed you were by Keith Olbermann's lack of objectivity. You anchored your own program on MSNBC for a while and I never noticed you exhibiting any objectivity. It seemed to me that you mostly promoted Republican talking points. Why the double standard? I also didn't see you mention despair at any of the Fox News personnel's lack of objectivity.
Tucker Carlson: My point wasn't that Keith Olbermann or Bill O'Reilly or I or anyone else is objective. There's long been a place for analysis, and there should be. My only point was that there ought to be a place for objectivity as well, and that discussions of politics -- particularly on election night -- ought to be anchored by journalists who don't have an obvious axe to grind. Otherwise you lose the trust of your viewers.
I understand what he's trying to say here but Keith hasn't lost the trust of his viewers. They love him so much he can do nothing wrong. Not even arguing with his colleaques could make them see anything wrong. And him anchoring on election night with all his Obama love isn't going to make them see anything wrong.
If it hadn't been Gustav it would've been something else. It's no secret that Keith is in the tank for Obama and doesn't like the Republicans, but it would be nice if he'd just come right out and admit it.
It's one thing for his boss..es to admit it, sort of, but why doesn't Keith? I mean, it's not like people are going to gasp and shake their heads in disbelief. But if you believe this then I've got a bridge to sell.
With Election Day two months away, Olbermann said he was not worried about Obama and John McCain taking control of his heart and mind.
Sorry bub, but it's already happened. It doesn't matter if he's doing sports or not, he's still going to post on Kos(obvious democratic site) and talk about himself. Apparently, he can't create a blog on the Countdown website and talk about himself so he uses a surrogate site(obvious democratic site) to make his flowery speeches.
Good grief, Keith. Just admit it.

"My reaction to that is: 'Grow up!' They have to just grow up," said Connie Chung, a former MSNBC host and former co-anchor of "CBS Evening News."
It's amazing how Phil Griffin tries to explain all of this away. He's a windbag.
Connie Chung was able to sum up the whole thing is just a few words. Good for her.

Why is he taking this route? I use to think he had a good business mind but after the past two nights I can't think that anymore.
His "star" is going to burn out or be put out if he continues making an ass out of himself AND out of MSNBC. This has gone way beyond unprofessionalism. In fact, it's jumped right into adolescent behavior and childish antics.
But like driving by a bad car accident you can't help but watch the destruction.
Tuesday, August 26, 2008
On a different note. Keith isn't very good at this political convention stuff, is he? I just find his reporting a bit out of touch. He looks awkward and sounds unprofessional. Not so much so that he shouldn't be there but...maybe he seems uncomfortable.
I know he felt this overwhelming desire to let the Kos kids know he took a bathroom break. Gee, will he next be telling them how it all came out? Lord knows, he doesn't want them getting upset or making speculations about why he did this or that.
Maybe he'll let us ALL know what color his underwear are or if he's even wearing any.
Come on Keith, is your life so bad that you have to just chat up these people with such ridiculous information? You really aren't happy at home, are you? That can change, you know. After all, this is the campaign of change.
Monday, August 25, 2008
He gushed all over the place after her speech. I was thinking maybe he needed a cigarette.
Oh, and he took the Kos kids with him. He's already commented twice on there. What's the matter Keith? Not getting enough love from Joe? Or Katy? Or Chris? Or the crowd down behind you holding up t-shirts with your face on them?
He needs to bring himself down a notch or two and stop acting like a spoiled child at the carnival. Or better yet, the girl who wanted the goose that lays the golden egg NOW.
He needs to start being realistic. He was the only one who couldn't come up with a decent story of hardship. Could it be because he's never had to endure such a life? This is something he just can't connect with no matter how hard he tries.
Poor Keith isn't very poor. Never has been and never will be. And will never know how to connect. Period.

Last night he wore a very pretty mint green tie, which, of course, means he loves me ;-)hehe, but his hair took on this strange green hue. And today he had on a pale blue one with a blue background and- his hair was blue.
I don't usually talk about his clothes or ties but I couldn't help notice this. Is it just me or has anybody else seen this as well?

I know it is one of the cardinal tenets of this place that Donahue was cancelled because of his political viewpoints, but I must tell you, that wasn't the reason.
Did his opposition to the war hasten the cancellation? I'm sure it did. But had there been no war, or had there even been no push for war, all I know about that show suggests it would have been cancelled anyway. There's a New York Times article I stumbled across the other day, from September 2002 I think, that talks about how he was nearly cancelled because of expenses and ratings, then.
My last submission: the same people who pulled the plug on Donahue are the ones who started, fought for, defended, and aided Countdown -- especially in the politically dangerous times of 2003 and 2004.

"THE RACHEL MADDOW SHOW" LAUNCHES SEPT. 8 ON MSNBC
NEW YORK - Aug. 20, 2008 - "The Rachel Maddow Show," a smart look at politics, pop culture and all the day's top stories, will premiere Monday, Sept. 8, on MSNBC, it was announced today by Phil Griffin, President, MSNBC. "The Rachel Maddow Show" will telecast weekdays, 9-10 p.m. ET.
"Rachel is unbelievably talented and brilliant; her breadth and depth of knowledge of politics and news is astonishing and I'm so excited to give her a place to really showcase what she can do," said Griffin. "We've established MSNBC as the place for politics and the destination for viewers who want the smartest take on the day's developments. Adding Rachel into our primetime lineup makes perfect sense."
"I've loved working with MSNBC, and being asked to host my own show is an amazing opportunity," said Maddow. "I can't wait to get started."
Dan Abrams, currently the host of "Verdict," will remain Chief Legal Correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC; he will be expanding his role contributing to "Dateline" and "Today" and will also serve as an anchor on MSNBC during the day.
"When Dan served as General Manager, he really laid the groundwork for MSNBC's success today, with ratings growing 62 percent under his watch. Dan helped establish MSNBC as the place for politics, launched our political "Super Tuesday" coverage and was vital in positioning the network for its current success," said Griffin. "Dan is the best legal analyst in the business. Our primetime focus is now politics, so this move will enable Dan to focus on what he does best."
"Putting my G.M. hat back on, I think this is absolutely the right call. I look forward to my future success at NBC News," said Abrams.
"The Rachel Maddow Show" will feature Maddow's take on the biggest stories of the day, political and otherwise, including lively debate with guests from all sides of the issues, in-depth analysis and stories no other shows in cable news will cover. Maddow will also continue to host "The Rachel Maddow Show" on Air America at 6 p.m. ET.
In January of 2008, Maddow was named an MSNBC political analyst; she is a regular panelist on MSNBC's "Race for the White House with David Gregory" and a frequent contributor on "Countdown with Keith Olbermann." She has been the regular guest host for "Countdown," has filled in for David Gregory on "Race," and has been a regular panelist on MSNBC's 2008 election coverage.
Maddow has worked with Air America Radio since its inception in the spring of 2004. Prior to joining AAR she worked for WRNX in Holyoke, Massachusetts, and WRSI in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Maddow received a bachelor's degree in public policy from Stanford University. She earned her doctorate in political science at Oxford University, which she attended on a Rhodes Scholarship. She is currently working on a book on the changing role of the military in U.S. politics, due out next year. She lives in New York City and Massachusetts with her partner, artist Susan Mikula.
Keith's Mom is a member of Kos. I'm just joking. I thought it was kind of funny that this lady calls herself Mrs. Olbermann. And, yes, there's a story behind it. It seems her husband joked about her "boyfriend"(Keith) coming on in a few minutes. I doubt she's the only one. In fact, the joke happened to me a long time ago. That was until I learned he was an egotistical creep. Quite often now I miss the first ten minutes of the show. I do it on purpose because the first story is usually boring.
But, all in all, it's a bit humorous.
Impressive, indeed! (8+ / 0-)

My my, isn't he just proud of himself. It's great news that Rachel has her own show. It's bad news that Keith thinks he Superman.
I believe he probably went to bat for her and talked a good talk to get her that job, but ultimately it's the big wigs who makes the decisions. Keith ain't no big wig. If he was he would be making a hell of a lot more money than what he is.
Keith puts himself on a pedestal way too much and his so called "modesty" doesn't work that well. At least not for me anyway.
But, putting aside his EGO, the rapper worst persons thing tonight cracked me up. That was the funniest thing since he and Mo Rocca discussed the variety of farts.

I'll say it again.
Too much of a good thing isn't a good thing.
Granted, it's been a while since he's done the last one but it seems like it was just yesterday.
It's gotten to the point where the whole show is pretty much a "special comment"..with guests.
I do prefer to read them, though, when he insists on doing them. The writing is good. However, they've almost become passe.
No more special comments. Please. Or at least wait till Obama gets into office and screws up.

"guy goes out of his way to return money he found"
Katy quote, "Now, I only have a ten. I don't have that much money."
A) it wasn't necessary to put this in her explanation. B) since she insisted on saying it, she left out two very important words: "With me". "I don't have that much money with me". That would've been the more appropriate thing to say.
Actually, she shouldn't have said it to begin with. She doesn't have that much money? That's kind of a slight slam on Keith, isn't it?
And before you go and say, "No, she's makes her own money", let's look at the facts.
She had no job or money when she moved in with Keith. It took her over a year to get that job and we all pretty much speculate how she got it. She lives in a multi million dollar condo with someone who isn't hurting for cash.
Now one can ask, did he cut her off? Is it that she makes very little money and Keith is making her fend for herself? One can only guess at the answers to those two questions.
I don't know how much a "freelance" reporter makes. Apparently it's not that much. She obviously doesn't spend money on professional clothing. But that's a different issue.
The facts remain. She never should've said that. Her reputation will always be questioned as long as she lives with someone who has a bad reputation. Also, if she wants to go far in this business she can't afford to be taking on Keith's personality.
I know that when two people live together for a long time they tend to pick up each other's habits. He is not a good habit to have.
Though she may not see it that way, it's still the facts. She's very young and impressionable, and easily manipulated. She has yet to create her own way of life and personality. Which means, she's not an individual. She's becoming exactly what Keith is molding her in to.
I say that because her statement was something that Keith would've said. In other words; don't put your personal business in with your professional business. I think that's where Keith made his biggest mistake.

So Rush Limbaugh is a hole, huh? I guess that's the easy way of saying he's an asshole? Never heard anybody called a hole before. But what Rush said about Elizabeth Edwards, or insinuated, was typical of just about any guy. Your wife is a nag so therefore it's okay to look elsewhere.
No offense fellas but you guys don't look at women as people first. How many of you can actually say that the first thing you look at are her eyes?
Though I thought it was commendable what Keith was trying to do, I think he's the wrong person to be spouting out moralities here. Or defending a woman's intellect.
Keith is about as moral as Hugh Hefner. How many times does a girl have to jump up and down before you're satisfied?
As for the murder of that poor man? I realize Keith was pissed that it happened, and I can understand that, but don't associate those of us who had nothing to do with the robbery of the White House and the heinous crimes of this administration in order to get your point across. I didn't vote for the creep. Nor did I participate in any injustice towards humanity. WE are not responsible. THEY are.
Now to The Soup and the end of the fun with Joel McHale. What a cop out.
Tuesday, August 12, 2008
That's just insanely childish.
He sits there and does a good job of reporting..well...stumbling reporting, some very interesting news tonight and then suddenly turns into this adolescent that makes one raise a brow or two.
He usually has good reason to bash BillO but, gee, can it be that difficult to do it without looking like a 9 year old?
Not once did I smile at this.
His parents must really be proud of him.

I really do wish this girl would get better. Seriously, I do. Though she disgusts me I still wish her luck in this field. I have the tendency to root for the underdog, but for how long, is the question.
This particular one is not very good at all.
If she doesn't get better she will have to rely on Keith for the rest of her life and that, dear friends, is not a good thing in any body's life. If you are constantly dependent on someone else to get you where you want to be in life, you will never learn how to be yourself. You will always be the person that the other person wants you to be.
I learned this when I was in the entertainment business(In my early 20's). That's why I'm not in it anymore. People will make you do things you don't want to do but yet you do them out of fear. Fear that you will not make it. Fear that you will have to go back and start all over again. Fear that you will never amount to anything.
These are the kinds of things those people will instill in you. They will make you feel you are worthless without them. And it's going to cost you a lot.
When I was told I would never get far in this world if I left the business that set the tone for me to get out. Don't tell me I can't make it on my own.
This child has yet to learn this lesson.
People with large egos always cheat. They do this because they think they're invincible. And invisible.
I really liked him the first time he ran for President. And I thought he was cute. I'm hoping now that he realizes what a true cad he is.
I also hope that Keith learns from him. But I'm not holding onto that hope.
You should go here for the latest installment. It's really good.
Countdown, though, was entertaining last night. I love Christian Finnegan. He makes me laugh. Keith also made me laugh, which is a rare thing these days.
I will not, however, listen to Gene Robinson anymore. I mute the t.v. whenever he's on. I like him but too much of a good thing is not a good thing.

I had the feeling Keith was definitely typing and I figured it was probably on Kos. Well, I checked out Kos and lo' and behold.
Does Keith not realize how despicably rude that is? How disrespectful it is? Now you tell me if he and bonehead truly get along. If he's that way with his guests I can only imagine how painful it is to live with him. But don't get me wrong I don't feel sorry for her. She spread her legs fast for a life of disrespect. And you can bet she's getting a boatload of it.
Shame on you Keith. Shame shame shame.
By the time I got to the hospital the pain had eased. Which meant, of course, that it was passing. Yep, folks, I passed a kidney stone this morning. hehe.
They gave me some wonderful pain medicine. And now I'm all better.
One more thing. Some comments have been removed. I'm thinking Blogger must've done it inadvertantly. I know I was having problems with some other things regarding the publishing of comments, and I know they were scheduled for an outage so it may have been during that time.
I can only retrieve two comments, and I will do that and post them shortly.
Tuesday, August 5, 2008
Now, it would be great, and I would be the first to say go ahead, if the international community tries that lot with war crimes.
Come on people. We already know this shit. Give us something new.
Also, Keith really needs to stop trying so hard to be funny. When he does that it makes him look incredibly stupid.
Now Rachel Maddow, on the other hand, has a great sense of humor and timing. She's a natural at this. And I think it has a lot to do with the fact that she goes with the flow. Keith's problem is, he thinks he's the flow. When in fact, it's the story. So his part in it is practically non existent.
One word to solve Keith's problem. PreparationH.
Monday, August 4, 2008
Personally, I could not make it... I was supposed to go to the Clinton Foundation Christmas party last December. I mean, that I was (on the air) criticizing them, was deeply, personally painful to me. I'm sure they will say not as deeply personallly painful to you as it was to us, but I really agonized over it and in many respects, I held fire on it. A lot of the subjects that she did early on in the campaign did not strike me as particularly in concert with the rest of the Democratic feel, so, you know, it wasn't personal – it really wasn't.
Would somebody be so kind to explain this to me? If it was personally painful to him then how can it be that it wasn't personal?
Sunday, August 3, 2008
Yes, I know what the blog is about but I found it amusing how it became a battle between who's the biggest baby.
Only Keith can bring something like this about. And funny how he's totally ignoring this. In fact, he hasn't posted on there in over a month. That's a record, isn't it?

Countdown was okay tonight. In bits and pieces.
The ratings slug fest has really got to stop though. It's extremely juvenile. I'm surprised Keith doesn't stick his thumbs in his ears waving his fingers going "Nanny nanny boo boo" at the end of his spiel.
You know, when I was a kid I use to think adults were these people with all the knowledge and foresight and maturity that could only make your upbringing a good thing, so I have to ask, did Keith's parents really intend for him to grow up to be such an immature, irresponsible, egotistical, rude, hateful, attention seeking, slut searching idiot? I seriously doubt it.
But he's just a wonderful guy, isn't he? If you really want to get immature about it, though, Keith started it. All.
Keith is the last person to be telling someone they need to see a shrink. First off, what that woman said about Obama needing to put some meat on his bones was not shrink worthy. Stupid, yes. Secondly, if everybody who said incredibly stupid things needed to see a shrink then we would all have to line up behind Keith, BillO, Bush, Cheney, Limbaugh, Ingraham, etc.
Granted Obama is a thin guy but it's really really stupid to NOT vote for him just because he's thin. And anybody who bases their vote on such a lame reason doesn't need to be voting. Stupid people shouldn't vote. But it's not necessary to go to a shrink.
Also, Keith said you can tell a man by his friends. Well, that was a mouthful, wasn't it? Keith has no friends. What does that tell you?
Aside from those few stupid things I rather enjoyed seeing Craig Crawford again. He cracked me up tonight. I never knew he had such a good sense of humor.
I've gotten to the point where I won't even listen to his guests anymore, with the exception of those who aren't on there very much. Like Derrick Pitts. Keith actually did something right with this guy.
It was also nice to see Craig Crawford. Haven't seen him in a long time. Though he gets on my nerves a little bit with the way he talks but I kind of like him.
Don't get me wrong, Countdown is a good show. It's the host that makes it hard to stomach at times. Keith is becoming more and more physically unattractive. If he keeps gaining weight he's just going to be downright ugly. But then, that would work more to his advantage considering his attitude is already ugly.
I just get the feeling that, eventually, Keith is going to piss off the wrong person and he's not going to get out of it scar free.

If 250 million Americans don't know who the hell BillO is then that means 251 don't know who the hell Keith is. Which means, their ratings don't even account for a decent percentage of the population.
They both have an ego the size of the population but it's not warranted. They have no reason to be so arrogant and egotistical, but yet they are. Why do you suppose that "news" people are so high on themselves, especially when the majority of the population don't give a damn about cable news?
And though it was nice to hear Keith give a shout out to Southern Californians because of the earthquake, it's guaranteed that 90% of those people didn't even hear it.
He did that for his own purpose because he has this delusion that he's much bigger than what he really is.
The majority of his viewers are east of the Mississippi so just about anything he says about California is pretty much a waste of air.
It's all for himself just as what BillO does or says is all for himself.
And on a different subject. One of the reasons I don't like bonehead is because she's a disgrace to the female gender. Decent women who work their asses off just to get ahead would never stoop as low as this child has. Or any of the females that use sex to get what they want.
It's because of them that women's rights will never be taken seriously.
Keith is delusional to think that the world revolves around him and bonehead is delusional to think that Keith is going to let her rise above him in any field of endeavors.
Monday, July 28, 2008
The story was about this GPS device for people who suspect their SO is cheating on them. After she finished her story Keith told her that he would never get caught. Monica told him that he would but he argued with her that he wouldn't. This back and forth went on for a short time.
Of course he was being mighty smug about it. I didn't think it was funny at all. I still don't. In fact, I thought, how pathetic are you to think that YOU would never get caught, AND that it says a great deal about what kind of person you are.
This told me that Keith thinks he can get away with anything...including cheating. And I don't believe for one minute that he's changed his point of view on this.

Guerrero is shrewd enough to know that her looks have enhanced her TV career, yet seemingly naïve in believing that posing in scanties or low-cut halters won't damage the journalistic credentials she proudly describes. Keith Olbermann, whose time at FSN overlapped with Guerrero's, suggested that the ''Monday Night'' announcers Al Michaels and John Madden ''resign in protest'' and that Guerrero ''can pose in Maxim but can't come back into the credibility pool.''
Guerrero declined to comment on Olbermann's criticism.
Fred Gaudelli, producer of ''Monday Night,'' said: ''Keith Olbermann's history speaks for itself. Any opinion rendered by him is the opinion of a troubled man.''

when you're perfect in every way.
I can't wait to look in the mirror
cause I get better looking each day.
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
but I'm doing the best that I can.
I used to have a girlfriend
but she just couldn't compete
with all of these love starved women
who keep clamoring at my feet.
Well I prob'ly could find me another
but I guess they're all in awe of me.
Who cares, I never get lonesome
cause I treasure my own company.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
when you're perfect in every way,
I can't wait to look in the mirror
cause I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
but I'm doing the best that I can.
I guess you could say I'm a loner,
a cowboy outlaw tough and proud.
I could have lots of friends if I want to
but then I wouldn't stand out from the crowd.
Some folks say that I'm egotistical.
Hell, I don't even know what that means.
I guess it has something to do with
the way that I fill out my skin tight blue jeans.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
when you're perfect in every way,
I can't wait to look in the mirror
cause I get better looking each day
To know me is to love me
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord it's hard to be humble
but I'm doing the best that I can.

"Truck jumps the curb and rams into pedestrians"
This is a girl who can tell you that it's "exciting" watching a crane kill people and smile while saying it. However, she's not a happy camper in the one above.
Do you think it could be because Keith is living it up in L.A. and she was left behind?
Something tells me that not all is well in this so called "she's the only person I can stand being around" relationship.
Monday, July 21, 2008
That was just awful. Countdown would've been much better had Keith not even done it tonight.
I'm sure he probably wanted to make an appearance but the first half hour seemed very unprepared.
Once Rachel took over it was smooth sailing. I'm starting to really like her. Of course, I turned away when Michael Musto came on. His head is too big for his body. Yuk.

Obviously, I'm not a McCain supporter, but it does get a bit old listening to the bashing over and over again. I mute the t.v. quite often. If the caption looks good then I'll listen to it.
But living in the past is something that Keith rides on all the time. He got fired from FOX, and yes, they suck, but Keith constantly puts them down. Get over it, right? He's not gonna do that.
He also has this strange hateness for Laura Ingraham. Whom he can't seem to get enough of. Living in the past.
The more he works with Dan Patrick the more he remains in the past. Just read the majority of the comments of those who thinks it's wonderful those two are getting to work on television together again.
I say this because, yes, Keith is a hypocrite. He can dish it out but nobody is allowed to throw it back. And if they do throw it back he acts as if it hurts his feelings. Well, boohoo!
The Tony Snow situation is unfortunate but it's a minor incident in a long line of flame throwing that Keith started. It's one thing to stand up to the bullies and be a hero, but it's a whole other ballgame when you become the bully.
It frustrates me that Keith can't see it. Or won't see it. He covers his ears and closes his eyes to the fact that the bullies are fighting back to his bullying.
So Keith will live in the past as long as he thinks it's fun to bully.

Blah blah blah Jib Jab blah blah me me I I.
Me me me me me me I I I I I me me.
Welcome back me and I. Are you sure there isn't another ballgame you could attend for several more days?
One note that I must address. I agree that Rupurt Murdoch and his "friends" are sick, BUT so is Keith. I guess it really does take one to know one.
And nothing says mourning like going to a fun game of baseball.

Oh, and I did not miss Worst Persons In The World at all.
Are there just no more ballgames for him to attend?

It doesn't take somebody to "know" Keith to know Keith. He makes himself well known. That being said, the road he's travelling is one I find hard to swallow.
I've been watching Countdown since day one and I found Keith to be the only one who seemed unbiased and straight forward. I loved his snarkiness, or rather his asshole approach to things. And he gave me the news. But somewhere along the line he turned into a cad.
This goes along with the poll question I posted. Now, I don't believe in the majority vote that says he lies ALL the time, but I do believe he lies sometimes.
I care because I feel Keith sold himself to the highest bidder. He was once a great journalist. He still is a damn good writer but at what cost? Money and ratings seems to be his main agenda and it saddens me that he sold himself short.
He took up with a child at a very suspicious time and made it very very public. He then starts posting and commenting on a very biased, and rather cruel, site.
Keith has taken away from himself something good and turned himself into something bad.
This frustrates me because I feel duped and betrayed by the only unbiased journalist that isn't that way anymore.
And I know I'm not the only one who feels that way. A lot of people are coming out slowly about his sudden ego trip and how he's turning them off and away.
One commenter said that she loves him but he pisses her off a lot. I can understand that.

Tony Snow's Death: Olbermann Statement
Statement from MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann:
Tony Snow was an optimistic, funny, and courageous man who could set aside his politics and inspire others to do the same. It might surprise many at all political points, but while we could not have disagreed more on policy, we were in frequent contact, even during his days as Press Secretary, even as I was criticizing his work and he was — in his own words — yelling at the screen as he watched. It was with great sadness that I heard of his death today, and with sincerity I extend my condolences and my staff's to his family. In the best of us, there is a difference between the message and the messenger, and Tony Snow epitomized that.
It's terrible that all the good guys keep getting taken and the not so good ones are living it up without regards to others.
Though Keith's statement was with sincerity I just feel it means almost nothing to him. Though I believe Keith feels a sadness towards this loss I also believe that it won't last long.
I'm sure he'll say something about it Monday on Countdown, and I'm sure it will be well given and well received, but Keith is one of the coldest people out there, which means his amoral behavior won't allow something of this nature to change him.
The love and admiration he has/had for Tim Russert didn't change the way he perceives human beings. His hatred for others goes beyond anything that the moral police can fix.
In other words. Keith can see the goodness in some people, and say the right things at the right times, but it won't make him a better person. And I will never see him as a good person, regardless of his sincere statements, as long as he continues to travel the road he's on.
