Olby and guest on the Letterman saga: Palin’s kind of become the villain in all this, hasn’t she?

posted at 10:17 pm on June 11, 2009 by Allahpundit

Believe it or not, this trainwreck wasn’t even the number one story tonight. That was reserved for Carrie Prejean, with Village Voice troll Michael Musto reprising his role as hatchet man by calling her a “biotch” while fantasizing with Olby about her career melting down. Somehow, some way, Margaret Carlson manages to sink lower than even the modern-day Murrow here, first by spinning Letterman’s non-apology as an apology more profuse than any talk-show host has ever delivered and then arguing that Bristol’s actually fair game for crap like this because she was, after all, a presence at the Republican convention or something. Try and fathom a mind that actually searches for ways to justify goofing on an 18-year-old single mother as a whore.

Your exit quotation: “There’s a worst person in the world somewhere in this story but it’s not David Letterman anymore.” No, I’m not kidding.

And don’t compare Carlson to Velma.

I LIKE Velma. She’s good people.

I believe there are demons on this world. I think I’ve actually seen one.The story on him is he’s pretending to be a media hack named Olbermann. But take a close look at him. Look long enough and you’ll see the pure evil. That demon today spreads lies to promote an evil group in power. That demon today thirsts for the daily killing of thousands of innocent babies.
But that demon has lived on earth in earlier times. Look at him again. Picture that demon, nearly 60 years ago, in his black SS uniform at a place called Dachau. I see Olbermann in that uniform. Not as some soldier or pilot, simply fighting for his country. No this demon runs the concentration camp, thirsting on dead souls. He was in charge of killing the little children. He is a demon, that comes from a family of demons. His demon mother at first worked, then haunted several 19th century bordellos. His father was a common gray rat hence his appearance.
Currently today he lives “shacked up living in sin” with a REAL slut named Katy Tur.

If this islike the Willow/whore joke, I’ll laugh like any other common DEMOCRAT SCUM.

Uh, in case you have not figured it out Mitt fan, she IS superwoman. If she runs, no other GOP person will come close.

She fights. The others wither.

Sapwolf on June 12, 2009 at 9:19 AM

So who is the funky four-eyed hag? No, not Olby, the other one.

RobCon on June 12, 2009 at 9:24 AM

It’s just sexism, people.

And that’s a liberal concept.

It was disgusting to watch.

AnninCA on June 12, 2009 at 3:09 AM

No. It’s HATE.

Sapwolf on June 12, 2009 at 9:25 AM

I really think Olby pleasures himself to his own show.

RobCon on June 12, 2009 at 9:25 AM

You can write this lady at Bloomberg and tell her what you think.

RobCon on June 12, 2009 at 9:27 AM

The story I told you above was one I heard about ANOTHER person called Olbermann and another Katy Tur. Look at me, would I ever defame the MSNBC one.
Of course the story is crude, it’s just something I heard, but if I apologized every time I wrote something crude, I’d never get anything done.
(Sorry no laugh track)

Jeff from WI on June 12, 2009 at 9:29 AM

Hey, who’s the old crone on with the Olby jerk. The last time any man, (ooops,as an obvious lefty I should of said woman), ok..ok..the last time ANY WOMAN looked at her was during the Harding Administration.

Jeff from WI on June 12, 2009 at 9:42 AM

Like Palin said – Letterman would never make those type of jokes about other families and I’m thinking she was talking about the Zero’s family….

On another note – How did the the Obama kids turn out so darn cute anyway…?

that will be the last vid I ever watch of KO – ever. why waste the time on HA?

poppieseeds on June 12, 2009 at 10:10 AM

You really have to wonder with their ratings now virtually non-existent, who exactly do these morons on MSNBC think they are actually talking to, other than the production crew who run the shows?

pilamaye on June 12, 2009 at 10:47 AM

Will Ms. Carlson be able to whine about being a victim of all the email she’s going to receive after rationalizing that Gov. Palin invited this attention?

Cindy Munford on June 12, 2009 at 10:52 AM

Listening to this and feeling like my mind has been molested.

So is Henrietta Potter there saying that the Obama girls are now fair game as well because they too were on stage with O-daddy?

Mind numbing.

UrbanRevival on June 12, 2009 at 10:55 AM

So that’s what Al Franken looks like in drag…

Grafted on June 12, 2009 at 10:59 AM

Olbermann is so sick… he’s just twisting his perspective to serve his ideological affiliation. If this were sick jokes about Chelsea Clinton or either of Barack Obama’s daughters, he would be outrageously OUTRAGED. Yet, even in this case, he cannot divorce himself from his paranoia and hatred of the right long enough to even recognize where letterman crossed the line. The man is sick, I tell you - SICK.

thedude on June 12, 2009 at 11:00 AM

I have not been able to watch Letterman’s “apology”. Can anyone tell me how many times, if any, he used any form of the word “apologise” or “sorry” in his statement on the show?

GreenBlade on June 12, 2009 at 11:33 AM

This is some of the sickest spin I’ve ever seen. I felt like puking after watching this. The tipping point can’t be far off in one way or the other.

MarkABinVA on June 12, 2009 at 11:47 AM

So, Palin’s kids are fair game because they were on state during the campaign? So were Sasha and Malia.

Margaret Carlson is full of shit, and Olbermann is a waste of air. Whoever said the left doesn’t incite hate never watched Countdown. I watched this video and would love to kick his ass. And his little dog’s, too.

Where was Olbermann on the Imus joke? And for what its worth, Palin was on the Today show to discuss her pipeline, not the friggin letterman crap. Matt asked her about it. Perhaps KO should take issue with Matt for continuing the mess, not her.

I hate him.

sarainitaly on June 12, 2009 at 11:55 AM

Olby is an idiot….”watch the train wreck in the morning on the Today show.” The only train wreck is MSNBC. They will stop at nothing to discredit Gov. Palin. The video of her Today show appearance where she is talking about the energy project is titled “Palin is naive” or something like that. They are trying to continue the theory that Palin is trying to get in the headlines…..however they are the ones missing the point on the good work she is doing. They try to keep her in the “gossip” column instead of the political arena and unfortunately some of their brain dead viewers probably fall for it.

GreenBlade on June 12, 2009 at 11:33 AM

He wasn’t aplogizing. He was covering his ass. He REREAD all the jokes, and commented that he liked the slutty flight attendant joke. His whole audience was laughing. It was not an apology.

sarainitaly on June 12, 2009 at 11:56 AM

What a piece of garbage the lady in the video is. JUSTIFYING the comments about raping a 14 yo girl.

What a JOKE the liberal media is. How in the WORLD does Olbermann have a job??..His ratings are worse than those for a Pauly Shore movie..

Where is A-Rod in all this? Why would he want to be associated with having knocked up a 14yo girl? Wait, I know the answer to that..He digs older, MUCH older (Madonna) broads…

Folks, this world is crumbling before our very eyes..

The sociliaziaton of everything, FORCING policies on the American people, and even though the administration preaches transparency, the long form birth certificate is still no where to be seen.

The lefties are definitely SCARED of Palin…

AmericanPatriot70 on June 12, 2009 at 12:06 PM

I want to puke everytime I see that idiot

bladegripp on June 12, 2009 at 12:15 PM

Olberman…O’Reilly for the ideologically maladjusted….

Margaret Carlson…Kellie Prejean for the visually impaired….

…the Democrat left…a coterie of fragile fools who’ve built careers, some of ‘em, on squeezing apologies out of society for real and imagined “assaults” of all descriptions…but, when one of their number steps over the line (their foot coming down solidly on their shrivelled Johnson), it’s only a joke….

…tell that to Jimmy the Greek…Trent Lott…Michael Richards…all of whom may (from your perspective) have said something in their turn as reprehensible…but, in their cases, as with the electorate and elections, consequences happened….

…by the way, Carlson — whose soul seems to match her looks (painfully plain and perpetually sneering) — and her remark about Sarah’s eldest daughter and her boyfriend being “paraded” at the RNC convention like “Charles and Diana from the Klondike” is in at least as bad taste as was Mr. Letterman’s remark…and here Olberman is an enabler….

…the left is letting slip that they’re letting Satan sit in on their media strategizing….

Puritan1648 on June 12, 2009 at 12:48 PM

Does Keith ever have dissenting views on his show, or just ‘yes men’?

stackedeck on June 12, 2009 at 1:13 PM

Forgive Olby, he has an upset stomach from eating up all the sh*t Obama spews form his mouth. Pass the Listerine and the Kool-aid please.

bluegrass on June 12, 2009 at 1:14 PM

Olby and guest on the Letterman saga: Palin’s kind of become the villain in all this, hasn’t she?

SIMPLE SOLUTION:
BOYCOTT MSNBC

I ALL READY HAVE.

byteshredder on June 12, 2009 at 2:02 PM

So who is the funky four-eyed hag? No, not Olby, the other one.

RobCon on June 12, 2009 at 9:24 AM

…Letterman?

Wait, no, that’s the washed up comedian, desperately grasping for anything to get some ratings. Sorry.

CatsGodot on June 12, 2009 at 2:58 PM

WHAT??!??!! You got to be kidding me! I will be sending my comments to MSNBC about this imbecile from Bloomberg News.

Letterman is a washed up hack that will do anything for a laugh. Since he has no morals himself – we can expect more of this type of sick humor.

BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT!!!

whatzit2u on June 12, 2009 at 3:50 PM

Oooolby! Ooolby! Come here boy! Come on boy…good boy…who’s the good boy…yes, he’s the good boy.

caygeon on June 12, 2009 at 4:21 PM

AP: Bristol’s actually fair game for crap like this because she was, after all, a presence at the Republican convention or something.

What Margaret Carlson said: “And that ended for the Palins when Bristol was paraded on stage at the convention…”

Read: This is only acceptable if you’re “The One’s” daughter[s]

pain train on June 12, 2009 at 6:44 PM

I have never understood during all the time I have been reading Hot Air why it is important to have report on such a obvious attention starved worm like Olberman!? Any and everything that take place on this worms show is complete lunacy!

CDM on June 12, 2009 at 7:54 PM

Olberman is not an evil commentator. He is a caricature of an evil commentator, a cross between Tokyo Rose and Ted Baxter.

Letterman is pathetic. Olberman is on the waiting list to become a pathetic wannabe. If he’s lucky, he’ll end his days – the victim of a loathesome disease, no doubt – alone, unshriven, unmourned, and unremembered. And then the flophouse handman will return and happily drink that last bottle of Thunderbird Olberman wanted so badly….

I like stories with happy endings. :)

Venusian Visitor on June 12, 2009 at 10:57 PM

Shouldn’t Letterman’s so called “joke” about rapping a 14 year-old girl kinda spark an investigation?

Sure he most likely just an idiot, but I get that creepy feeling bout Dave, like I did about Bernie Ward the lion of the left.

Bernie Ward, pedophile rapist child pornography his excuse was “research for a book”

So long as Letterman keeps dodging the question, “why do you Dave Letterman thinks raping little girls is funny” me think he’s hiding something.
And why is Olbermann defending Letterman on this?

Olbermann defended Bernie Ward, even had him on his show, things that make ya go hummmmmmmm?
