Mashed-up mascara'd Olbermann.

So Olbie is nothing more than an S&M writer? Now it all makes sense.

A Little Mascara.
I always thought there was reference to It's A Wonderful Life in the lyrics.

Freeman Hunt said...

Even the original ad was ha-worthy.

Original Mike said...

I think they mistranslated "Lean Forward". I've read the original text, consulted with linquistic experts, and believe a more accurate translation would be "Bend Over".

Freeman Hunt said...

Some smug looking guy typing. Then he pauses his well-manicured finger for a moment. Then he makes a poor word change. Then we see him on television saying out loud the faux thoughtful thing he was writing.

Who is supposed to find this appealing?

(Mostly middle to upper middle class women ages 30-55 who think of themselves as creative, intelligent, and liberal. Advertisers going for this market segment will express concern for the environment, appeal to the desire to avoid "toxins," show regard for the viewer as a superior, more thoughtful than average person, include elements such as painting or dancing to show explicit appreciation for the creative arts, and approach branding as the creation of an intimate, emotional connection with the viewer.)

Freeman Hunt said...

I should have included lower middle class in that as well. Consider it included now.

The Great Lean Forward?

Kirby Olson said...

The Great Leap Forward was a great leap backward into famine and desolation. The left is the last gasp of Mao's Great Leap Forward. I don't think they are aware of this. The project should be to make them aware of their origins.

SdB was a stalwart of the Great Leap Forward and in her book on Mao, made it clear that the feminist movement was based on Maoism. Tel quel, from which the hydra-headed group of French intellectuals such as Jacques Lacan, Luce Irigaray, Julia Kristeva, Michel Foucault, Roland Barthes, and others sprang with all their impossible arguments, was also based on Maoism, as they made quite clear in their June 14th pronouncement.

What we need is Friedrich Hayek.

Locke, Madison, Hamilton, as Meade put it the other day, are good reference points, too.

Olby is a perfect representative of modern Liberal males. Spiteful, pissy little punks. Every one of them.
Picking on girls is a particular specialty of the breed.

ndspinelli said...

Why even waste time on this idiot.

William said...

I didn't catch the obscene subtext of teabagging until the liberal media kindly brought it to my attention. However, an expression like "Lean Forward" is as smirkingly obvious as "Does she or doesn't she"....I wonder if there's a joke here I don't get. The brilliant, crusading newsman leans forward and polishes his murkiness to a dull sheen. Is this a subliminal way to cash in on the vogue for anal sex? Keith Olbermann is to literate commentary as prison rape is to courtly romance.

Does this have something to do with a rusty trombone.

edutcher said...

He should take his own advice - Shut. The Hell. Up.

If it was Olbermann tumbling into a ditch I'd laugh my ass off. Sorry, Dr. Johnson.

"I have no more pleasure in hearing a man attempting wit and failing, than in seeing a man trying to leap over a ditch and tumbling into it."

That's just silly. The Three Stooges made an entire career out of both of those things.

Quaestor said...

Olbermann is the fifth stooge: Moe, Larry, Shemp, Curly and Stupid.

Moe: C'mer, porcupine. (Grabs Larry by the hair. Ripping sound)

Larry: Ow! Ow! Ooh!

Moe: You too, stupid!

Olbermann: I resemble that remark!

Curly: Oh, ya do, do ya? La-la-dee, la-la dah! (Boink! Curly jabs two fingers into Olbermann eyes)

Olbermann: I can't see! I can't see!

Moe: What's the matter, kid?

Curly: He's got his eyes closed.

Olbermann: No, I'm a purblind leftist bigot, whadda ya think?

Moe: Oh, yeah? (Boink!)

The scene referenced above is from the 1942 classic "Idiots Try to Run A News Network" directed by Jules White and produced by Saul Alinsky.
