"Keith Olbermann Interviews A 'Clown' And A 'Witch' About Christine O'Donnell."

"The clown and witch were played by comedian Angry Bob and Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, respectively."



From the other end of the political spectrum, here's Rush Limbaugh complaining about O'Donnell's "I'm not a witch" ad. He mainly objects to her letting her opponents know it bothers her and giving any more play to something so stupid. Then there's this:
It's either navy, royal blue (very dark), or black background....  If you're gonna do a black background, it would be great to have Pelosi on a broomstick flying around or Harry Reid as one of the monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, "Oh-weee-looo'" if you're gonna do that. A dark background and say, "I'm not a witch"? Make it white. Make it a lighter, you know, a "morning in America" kind of background.
A white background? I think that would come across not so much "morning in America" as... Ellen Feiss!



And then when she got to the "I'm you" part, we'd be all Nooooo! You don't want me in the Senate. I'll screw everything up!

ha ha ha ha God forbid anyone one make fun of a gay person, right Michael? Cause we're supposed to be tolerant and not personalize our distaste for someone's political views with attacks on their private lives, past or present.

Of course, of the few people who watch MSNBC, there's not a single one who'd vote for her.

The whole witch thing is a complete non-story. I am however extremely curious for her to tell us more about the Chinese conspiracy to take over America and the classified info she was privy to:

It does appear that one stupid commercial sets off a chain reaction of stupid commentary...

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.

Tell me again how dumb everybody on the right is after watching something like that.

PS Well, HD got one thing right. Ubermoronn and Musto, if you throw in Maddow, certainly constitute the Weird Sisters.

WV "legrats" Small children who have matured to the point hanging onto Mommy is more fun than the Mohawk.

Not really an Olbermann fan but he is, you know, an entertainer. Maybe not a good one but an entertainer none the less. He is obviously not presenting that interview as fact or as a coherent argument.

Olbermann is about 1/4 as smart as he thinks he is.

OK, I can not apss this up...was the interview with the "Clown" and the "Witch" between Joe Biden and Pelosi?

You said it man.

The last thread on this stupid subject brought out the stupid commentariat in spades. Why, Ritmo alone made the thread unreadable by somewhere around the 15th post.

All the lib trolls chimed in on that thread with a vengeance. I'm not sure why, but I think it's because they have no defense on any other thread that exposes the idiocy inherent in their philosophy.

Alex said...

I wonder if HDHouse has any problem with Alan Grayson's viscous, nasty ads.

Cedarford said...

My theory is that both the media and the Palinistas want the media spotlight to be on a woman unfit to serve as Senator andbound to lose her election.

The liberals and progressive Jews wish to "deflect" attention and votes away from more viable female candidates like Fiorino, Whitman, McMohan, Angle - as well as men in similarly neck and neck horse races - so TV time and blogs and so on is focused on the telegenic guaranteed loser O'Donnell.
By all means put the O'Donnell soundbites up and ignore Angle, Dino Rossi! The more attention is on O'Donnell, the more likely other Republicans in close races are to be ignored and lose.

Goddess Palin acolytes want more and more time on O'Donnell. Because she is so cute and spunky and her loss will "energize" those who wish to send a message and enforce purity. Those are the people that think helping to elect RINO Scott Brown was a major mistake and the Cause of Palin would have been better off with Martha Coakley in the Senate - until voters in Massachusetts come to their senses and become more Religious Right.
As well as Delaware and CT and California - better a Democrat in those States than an impure Republican who would never be elected in Alabama!

Liberals say "GO, Christine, GO!"
So do Palinistas.

A good tactic when dealing with shocking revelations, like practicing witchcraft, is to talk about them over and over for days on end. That desensitizes the shock image until the unusual person can be seen as just another person. So thanks to all of you Democrat talkers who when in need of material are repeating over and over the O'Donnel is a witch story.

Der Hahn said...

She needed a window with a four pane divider over her right shoulder.

traditionalguy said...

C-4...As for this acolyte, the victory of O'Donnell would be a great story proving that Dems are a rejected party. I do agree with you that Meg Whitman would also make a great female candidate, provided that she wins in California. Oh the blessings of competition. What will you do if a pro-Zionist like Palin becomes the nominee and many Jews come into the party leaving the Obama Dems? Will you start your own Ant-Jew Party?

".. I do agree with you that Meg Whitman would also make a great female candidate..."

You weren't thinking of running her as a male were you?

Clyde said...

Olbermann? Is he still on television?

Although with Eliot Spitzer now on CNN with a talker at 8:00 Eastern, Olbie probably no longer holds the title of skeeviest sad-sack getting crushed by O'Reilly in the time slot. Probably.

Clyde said...

And on a related note, pity poor Kathleen Parker.

There was a time in this country when a politician like Spitzer who got caught in a sex/hypocrisy scandal would have the decency to go away and never come back! Sadly, that time has passed. The whole concept of shame has become obsolete (at least among Democrats, anyway).

Bill Maher has showed us just how fungible politics and celebrity have become....

MayBee said...

So would it be funny to have a coke dealer and giant turban-wearing Imam on to talk about Obama?

traditionalguy said...

HD...Touche'. Sexist ole me again.

section9 said...

Stop for a moment.

Edward R. Murrow or Cronkite wouldn't have done something like this. This was just a blindingly clownish thing for Olbermann to do.

No wonder O'Reilly kicks his ass.

c3 said...

Alvin Greene is eternally grateful for Christine O'Donnell's victory in the Delaware Republic Senatorial primary.


Gosh, I feel like a racist for even writing that.


I'm sorry

wv: ativen. Yes, I should take one more. That will help.

Methadras said...

Nice to see Musto coming out of the closet to reveal his true self. I knew his public facade was a farce.

roesch-voltaire said...

At least Olbermann admits he is "dabbling in news" as he presents these clever riffs on the latest political charades, which is more honest than Rush's propaganda described as "entertainment."

dick said...

RV,

You lost it when you talked about Olbie's "clever riffs." What clever riffs. What clever to begin with. Olbie has to be one of the dumbest in the world and definitely has no "clever riffs/"

roesch-voltaire said...

I thought the whole riffing on bozo truthers exposing the resume padding was clever. Because you do not agree with some one, does not mean they are dumb.

Robin said...

Olbermann had a clown on his show? Well, that's pretty redundant.
