Don't cry for me MSNBC

By Dave Weinbaum



http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Keith Olbermann was king of the progressive dwarfs on the tube. He had the highest rated show on Progressive TV, leading the pack of Fox ankle-nippers who were unable to out-rabid him of the foaming mouth oratory. Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, Chris Matthews, Ed Schultz, Lawrence O'Donnell (his replacement), Bill Press, Alan Colmes, and the other cablelibstas all took their venom surges from the chief of the libiot asps, Keith.

Here are some quotes that made Olbermann the master of the Socialist media:


  • Referring to Rush: "I guess the painkillers wipe out your memory as well as your ethics."

  • Scott Brown is a, "…homophobic racist reactionary."

  • Telling those who oppose Obamacare they're responsible for 45,000 deaths a year.

  • Informing us that "…Reagan was dead and he was a lousy president." (Are you listening Barack)?

  • "Fox News is hated because they're elitists and the worst winners television's ever seen."

  • "I accuse you Mr. Bush of lying us into war."

  • To Mr. Bush: "…4,000 Americans dead and your response…was to stop playing golf!" (How has Obama, Golfer-in-Chief been able to escape Keith's wrath?)

  • "Even Richard Nixon knew when it was time to resign. Would that you could say that Mr. Bush and for Cheney."


Did he ever refer to Dubya as President Bush? Hmmmm.

Man who burns bridges should learn to swim first

Lack of ratings illuminates Progressive dilemma. Progressive radio carrier Air America is bankrupt. MSNBC, CNN and even the multi-outlet networks are subjugated to cleaning up the parade of Fox News and opinion shows.

Why?

Simply put, there aren't enough Socialists in America. The only way Progressives can stay in power is to subvert the election process, create disasters, bring back the unfair Fairness Doctrine and rule by executive order and agency rule. Even Obama has to put in an Academy Award performance to make you believe he shares any political DNA with the Gipper-especially after his first two years emulating the worst of Marx.

Another reason is that Fox has honest debate. Would you rather watch the Celtics play against themselves or relish them in a war against the Lakers? Watching libs slobber over each other isn't fun or pretty. There are large amounts of libs who watch Fox, just to see the fights.

The worst combination is having a thick ego and a thin skin

Olberman's problems weren't ratings, him being the poodle in a kennel of chirping Chihuahuas. But he was a long day at the office. Apparently his venom wasn't an act. He lived the part. Reports are he was contemptuous with crew and CEO's alike, not exactly a nice guy and loyal to his own self, not the team.

Keith emulates Al Franken. Olbermann had it over Al's comedy career. Franken's blustering on Air America simply didn't resonate with enough of America, but in the minds of Minnesotans it did qualify him to be a United States Senator.

Makes me want to break out in sad song:

Don't Cry for Me MSNBC To the tune of Don't Cry for me Argentina, by Andrew Lloyd Weber and Tim Rice. Don't cry for me MSNBC The truth is I used you. All thru my crazy rants The worst of sycophants I kept my promise At your insistence

And as for fortune, and as for fame, It's my chief claim But you didn't worship me. And now I'm forced to flee To my public I'm sure to their glee

Don't cry for me MSNBC I made you dollars By screaming lunacy Palin, Beck, Rush, O'Reilly Refused your collar. And I did holler

Don't cry for me MSNBC You didn't love me Put up with my rancor You pushed me out the door But soon you'll call me Mr. Senator

Move over, Al. Another clown is likely to be headed the Senate's way via Connecticut.

Maybe Senator Lieberman may want to reconsider his retirement.
