Video: Olby names Mary Katharine Ham “worst person in the world”

posted at 10:33 pm on January 28, 2008 by Allahpundit

What deadly sin could she have committed to earn such a distinction? Quote:

HAM: Well, I think Clinton has a duality. You know, he’s the charming guy, he’s the nice guy, but he’s also a guy who’s prone to eruptions and some falsehoods.

You know, he’s like The Incredible Hulk, except he turns sort of purple and blotchy instead of green. But, you know, I think he’s sort of a victim of the — or not a victim, but he’s getting used to the 24-hour news cycle. When he was president, he was not subjected to quite as much scrutiny, and I think he got a lot of passes, and now he’s mad he’s not getting them anymore.

Mind you, she’s referring to a man whom certain members of the press literally offered to fellate. But never mind that. Her misdeed is to deny the Olby Creation Myth, duly repeated in nearly every interview he gives and alluded to here, in which having to do 200+ shows on Monicagate during his first stint at MSNBC drove him to such Beale-esque despair that he emerged from the ashes as a second Murrow, spouting moronic derivative catchphrases (“good night and good luck”) and burdening his viewers periodically with tedious, vaudevillean performance art pieces in which he emotes about the ruining of America for his slackjawed left-wing audience. Nowhere did MK suggest that Clinton had gotten a pass about Monica, only that he’d gotten passes otherwise, but Olby’s never been overly concerned with close scrutiny of his targets’ pronouncements so why should this be any different?

Consider this, then, lie number 21. And memo to Mary Katharine, whose youth is so snidely derogated by this sniveling jackass: If you want to see what giving the Clintons a pass really looks like, watch this.

sweet! good for her.

jummy on January 28, 2008 at 10:33 PM

Okay, now he’s REALLY crossed the line. MKH is an angel incarnate.

Mindcrime on January 28, 2008 at 10:34 PM

Our little girl is all grown up.

billy on January 28, 2008 at 10:35 PM

Black is white.

mikeyboss on January 28, 2008 at 10:36 PM

I know it’s not right to wish ill on others, but in his case, I do.

MKH is the greatest. At least she knows about politics. She can debate the other side. She smiles. None can be said of bathtub boy.

I really, really hate this man.

scotth on January 28, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Real reason: MKH turned him down.

Spirit of 1776 on January 28, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Wear it as a badge of honor, MKH.

Slublog on January 28, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Olby working on a lifetime achievement award for Jackassery?

trubble on January 28, 2008 at 10:38 PM

Badge of honor! That’d be a great resume builder. And woman who has been one of Olby’s worst people is fine by me!

AbaddonsReign on January 28, 2008 at 10:38 PM

My dream is to make in Olby’s “Worst Person in the World.” Then I know I have truly made it.

terryannonline on January 28, 2008 at 10:38 PM

I wanna be worst person in the world *sigh*

EnochCain on January 28, 2008 at 10:39 PM

does that mean she gets a raise at townhall?

lorien1973 on January 28, 2008 at 10:39 PM

Boy! Olby hit his knees pretty quick in the presents of the Bubba huh? I doubt Monica could kneel that quickly!

conservnut on January 28, 2008 at 10:39 PM

Real reason: MKH turned him down.

Spirit of 1776 on January 28, 2008 at 10:37 PM

That was my first thought. She probably was really nice about it, which enraged him further.

Yes, I’ve been there.

baldilocks on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

this is an endorsement and a badge of honor, much like the NYT’s non-endorsement of Rudy was for him.

jp on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

Boy! Olby hit his knees pretty quick in the presents of the Bubba huh? I doubt Monica could kneel that quickly!

Experience trumps youth.

Spirit of 1776 on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

MKH joins the ranks of so many patriots tonight as olbermann awards her one of Conservatives highest achievements.

Jacob Hammond on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

I heard he hated going to work to cover the Clinton scandal. I think that’s where he got the nickname of bathtub boy.

scotth on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

MKH nailed it!,Olby is,still,
and forever will be clueless!

canopfor on January 28, 2008 at 10:41 PM

I think Olby’s jealous and lashing out. MKH undoubtedly has a larger fan base, and now Olby will get their undivided attention for this blog cycle.

Redhead Infidel on January 28, 2008 at 10:41 PM

Congratulations Mary Katharine! Now, if only you got a plaque or trophy or something to go with it.

CliffHanger on January 28, 2008 at 10:41 PM

OlbyWorld is a sad, sad place. Up is down, black is white, the best is worst, and what he does is considered entertainment.

We should remove OlbyWorld’s address from the stargate.

sulla on January 28, 2008 at 10:42 PM

Only one word comes to mind when I see Doblerman.

That word, is flacid.

SuperCool on January 28, 2008 at 10:43 PM

Olberman. German name. Deutschbag.

whitetop on January 28, 2008 at 10:43 PM

Now my list reads, Jerry Rivers, Juan Hernandez and Olby. Congratulations dick, you moved down MY list.
MKH rocks. Love that smile.

Geronimo on January 28, 2008 at 10:44 PM

How does he have a television show?

No. Seriously. I don’t get it.

Professor Blather on January 28, 2008 at 10:44 PM

baldilocks on January 28, 2008 at 10:40 PM

Baldi, if Keith Olbermann ever named you the world’s worst, I think my head would explode. The man is obviously deranged, but still…

Mindcrime on January 28, 2008 at 10:45 PM

What did Glenn Beck do to get runner up?

mad saint jack on January 28, 2008 at 10:45 PM

I once heard a quote along the lines that an American President really doesn’t become a leader until burned in effigy somewhere in the world.

I equate this situation to that. If you don’t raise the vitriol of kooks like Olby, then you really haven’t arrived. The absurdity, of course, is that Clinton supporters have said far worse about the man whose era of bad stewardship hurt this nation.

highhopes on January 28, 2008 at 10:45 PM

Of all the people in the world he chose her for that reason? Pea brain.

SouthernGent on January 28, 2008 at 10:46 PM

Clown, buffoon, jackass, moron, idiot, dweeb, dork, asshat, you look up all those words in the dictionary, you’d find a picture of Olberdouche next to them. MKH should wear that award as a badge of honor and I’m sure she will.

Ceroth on January 28, 2008 at 10:47 PM

mad saint jack on January 28, 2008 at 10:45 PM

Probably just said something contrary to the Democratic party.

terryannonline on January 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

That’s it OlbyDork,

you leave MKH alone or we steal away the 12 people in america who actually watch your dumbass show.

Always Right on January 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

Olby, and a lot of liberals, were the snot nosed brats that needed to get their … out on the playground during recess.

BowHuntingTexas on January 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

2 x 4 + Olbys melon = Pure bliss.

BallisticBob on January 28, 2008 at 10:48 PM

How come the world’s biggest idiot gets to name the world’s worst person ?

SIJ6141 on January 28, 2008 at 10:49 PM

Lucky MKH, not everybody gets to be Impotent Rage Boy’s “worst person in the world.”

doubleplusundead on January 28, 2008 at 10:49 PM

…Mary Katharine, whose youth is so snidely derogated by this sniveling jackass…

That Olbermann derogated MKH’s youth shouldn’t be a surprise. When he named Julie Banderas Worst Person in the World, this little jerk was so unprofessional and mean spirited that he prefaced his remarks by sneering that she had been “covering overflowing toilets on local news” just two years earlier.

radjah shelduck on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

has he ever picked McCain for this prestigious title?

jp on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

I feel sorry for allah as he is one of the few people in the world that watces olby. If it was not for his braveness we may never have learned of MKH honor.

Jacob Hammond on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

How does he have a television show?

No. Seriously. I don’t get it.

Professor Blather on January 28, 2008 at 10:44 PM

The guys who run MSNBC rarely watch their own network while sober.

SuperCool on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

What do I have to do to get on that list. Almost everyone I admire has made it. I have no greater aspiration.

Wingo on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

You can judge a woman by hre enemies.

jukin on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

The best part of any Olby segment is hearing the off-camera Sycophant du Jour loudly laugh at Olby’s oh-so-clever “gotchas.” It’s like watching a bunch of retarded kids in a room full of bouncy balls. Except retarded kids are about 20x more intelligent than Olby and his production staff.

Mindcrime on January 28, 2008 at 10:51 PM

Heh, thanks for grabbing it, Allah. I am truly honored. More eeeeevil than Karl Rove? What else could a young, conservative woman hope for?

marykatharine on January 28, 2008 at 10:52 PM

Mary katharine:

Never fear. All us Hot Airheads still love you.

Always Right on January 28, 2008 at 10:54 PM

Congratulations Mary Katherine! Now if we can somehow manage to get you a Nobel Peace Prize, you’ll have two awards worth nothing.

In reality though, you have our respect and sometimes our puppy-eyed adoration. What more could you ask for?

All the best!

Canadian Infidel on January 28, 2008 at 10:55 PM

Its a wonder anyone takes this douchebag serious. I watched the 21 lies in 8 minutes video and I have to wonder why this man keeps getting work. Even the lefties are not as brazen in their lying as this assclown.

Sadly Mr. olbermann gets a pass not because he is a valued journalist or is a hero of the left, but because no one outside of the five people that watch him on the upper west side, no one knows who this jackass is…

Sammy316 on January 28, 2008 at 10:55 PM

Awww, Mary Katherine is awesome and intelligent. I bet the Gut’s going to be jealous – he’s only been the worser person in the world.

I would dance a happy dance if Olbermann ever named me the worst person in the world. Seriously, is he a four year old? No one is ever going to take him seriously as a political pundit if that is his schtick. No wonder O’Reilly’s still kicking his a$% in the ratings.

mjk on January 28, 2008 at 10:55 PM

Mind you, she’s referring to a man whom certain members of the press literally offered to fellate. But never mind that.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

scottm on January 28, 2008 at 10:56 PM

I think its every evil conservative’s dream to be Worst Person at least once. Someday…

doubleplusundead on January 28, 2008 at 10:56 PM

what a tool

albuddy on January 28, 2008 at 10:57 PM

Grats to MK.

I’d have this as my ring tone if I were her.

Nessuno on January 28, 2008 at 10:57 PM

Christsakes, allahP, if you didn’t watch that oompahloompadouchebag, no one would.

Let him die, disgraced again and forgotten in the annals of tv obscurity.

Mazztek on January 28, 2008 at 10:57 PM

How does he have a television show?

No. Seriously. I don’t get it.

SuperCool on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

Apparently Olby is the guy running MSNBC.

billy on January 28, 2008 at 10:58 PM

Of course MKH must be talking about Monicagate. Slick Willy was given a pass on almost everything else so she couldn’t possibly be talking about that stuff.

Rip Ford on January 28, 2008 at 11:00 PM

Awesome!! Congrats MKH!!!

thirteen28 on January 28, 2008 at 11:02 PM

I guess she hit a nerve!

Pam on January 28, 2008 at 11:02 PM

I can’t bring myself to take this “ehem” person seriously. I can’t get past those silly glasses, his shrill blathering and utter lack rational thought.

I award him no points and may god have mercy on his under-size and limp soul.

BTW,

It’s like watching a bunch of retarded kids

I think retarded kids would take Umbrage with that statement. They are far more coherent.

Claypigeon on January 28, 2008 at 11:02 PM

MKH:
I fear your honor has been besmerched, if so, then I shall challenge this madman to a duel at sunrise. Chivalry you know is still alive and well in the South.

d1carter on January 28, 2008 at 11:03 PM

And the “Consistent Conservative” Fred Thompson voted along with Jim Jeffords, Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins to give him a pass..

Chakra Hammer on January 28, 2008 at 11:05 PM

M. McLuhan said, “Moral indignation is a technique used to endow the idiot with dignity.”

snaggletoothie on January 28, 2008 at 11:06 PM

Badge of honor, baby!

JustTruth101 on January 28, 2008 at 11:06 PM

Congrats MKH. That’s a badge of honor IMO to be so labeled by Olby. It means you did/said something right!

Yakko77 on January 28, 2008 at 11:06 PM

SuperCool on January 28, 2008 at 10:50 PM

He supposedly is the guy who runs MSNBC. No wonder they’re tanking huh?

Geronimo on January 28, 2008 at 11:07 PM

MKH is pretty. ;)

This Message has been Chakra Hammer Approved.

Chakra Hammer on January 28, 2008 at 11:07 PM

Wow, what a badge of honor this is!!!!

What an idiot though…C’mon, he still gets a pass for many things in the past.

It’s funny though, ironic actually, that it appears that things are slowly catching up to President Clinton.

HarryStar on January 28, 2008 at 11:08 PM

Dissing MK?! He’s walking on the fighting side of me…

WasatchMan on January 28, 2008 at 11:08 PM

baldilocks on January 28, 2008 at 11:11 PM

Spirit of 1776 on January 28, 2008 at 10:37 PM

Thank me later.

Jaibones on January 28, 2008 at 11:13 PM

I like the high pitched whine in Olby’s voice, sort of like one of those old Sears Beaver chainsaws…or a young man at 14, a Star Wars geek even…SIR.

What a douche.

SIRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

benrand on January 28, 2008 at 11:16 PM

Ok thats not fair, he is only making me want her MORE.

TroubledMonkey on January 28, 2008 at 11:16 PM

Not that I take this Massive Tool and he dumb-a$$ segment seriously, but, um, isn’t there a child-molester out there that might be slightly worse than MKH?

Pasalubong on January 28, 2008 at 11:17 PM

Olbermann is a brainless amoeba. Any additional degradation would be unnecessarily redundant.

rplat on January 28, 2008 at 11:17 PM

Kieth has now shown, without qualification, that he makes it his business to defecate from the wrong orifice.

JACK.ASS.

PolitiNOOB on January 28, 2008 at 11:18 PM

I think he got a lot of passes

Maybe he isn’t getting “passes” from the ladies and thats what is upsetting to him, he is old after all.

Chakra Hammer on January 28, 2008 at 11:18 PM

“I want to thank Nina Burleigh for coming clean and finally providing all of America with an apt metaphor for how the national media have treated Bill Clinton since he first ran for office,” Bozell said.

JB, from your link. No freakin’ kidding.

Spirit of 1776 on January 28, 2008 at 11:19 PM

Mind you, she’s referring to a man whom certain members of the press literally offered to fellate.

I thought from the second clip we were about to see someone actually follow through on the offer.

JimC on January 28, 2008 at 11:24 PM

Well, clearly saying ‘beauty and brains’ over and over doesn’t score you a date with her. Maybe Keith’s approach will work better.

tlynch001 on January 28, 2008 at 11:26 PM

I’m so proud of you Mary Katherine. You’re now officially one of the good people.

oakpack on January 28, 2008 at 11:27 PM

I am still p.o’ed that he is on NBC’s football sunday. ESPN…please bring back Prime Time!!!!!

Trauts on January 28, 2008 at 11:29 PM

Congratulation, MK! Wear it with pride.

TX Mom on January 28, 2008 at 11:29 PM

…but Olby’s never been overly concerned with close scrutiny the truth.

Fixed it.

MK, as a good southern gentleman, I’ll punch that sumbitch in the nose for you the first chance I get.

BacaDog on January 28, 2008 at 11:33 PM

Mary Katherine is the bestest worst person evah!

Pablo on January 28, 2008 at 11:34 PM

I don’t know how much they’re paying you Allah, but it’s not enough.

Purple Fury on January 28, 2008 at 11:44 PM

Sorry for double post. Don’t know what happened.

To sum it up though, Olby has fantasies about MK. Just wishing the cool girl would pay attention to him one time.

You know, Keith, you don’t have to pull the cute girl’s pigtails to get their attention. You just have to be sane.

BacaDog on January 28, 2008 at 11:51 PM

Olbersissy is just PO’ed because MKH can beat him at armwrestling.

FishFearMe on January 28, 2008 at 11:53 PM

Frankly, I’m jealous of MKH. One of my personal goals is to be named “Worst Person In the World” by the Olberdouche.

packsoldier on January 28, 2008 at 11:53 PM

And who else is not the worst person…. yawn…

Kini on January 29, 2008 at 12:06 AM

fogw on January 29, 2008 at 12:06 AM

MKH just went fom a 10 to an 11.

HotAirExpert on January 29, 2008 at 12:13 AM

HAM: Well, I think Clinton has a duality. You know, he’s the charming guy, he’s the nice guy, but he’s also a guy who’s prone to eruptions and some falsehoods.

Congratulations, Mary Katharine–you done good. As soon as I saw this post I thought, “Who did she tell the truth about?”, because that’s what it takes to get on Olberdouche’s bad side.

If I can offer one tiny bit of constructive criticism, though, it’s that you might want to steer clear of using the word “eruption” in conjunction with Bill Clinton. Just sayin’.
