Res ipsa loquitur.
Topics for discussion. Topic 1: Krazy Keith Olbermann pinched off his fourth “special comment” in three weeks tonight opposite O’R on MSNBC, and proved once again that his douche-itude is of such mass as possibly to affect the tides, or even to draw small cosmic objects into orbit around him. Johnny Dollar’s just posted the recap. If you want it straight from the horse’s ass, head over to Olby’s MSNBC blog and read the transcript. As predictable as the, well, tides, he’s seized on Bush’s remark that it’s “unacceptable” to think America’s treatment of prisoners overseas is morally equivalent to terrorism as proof that Bush believes it’s “unacceptable to think,” period. And thus a chill wind blows, etc. This, while Olby’s “new” book of recycled hit pieces from his show has cracked the top 100 on Amazon. What a preening, amoral, insufferably disingenuous jerkoff. As Johnny says,
Smugness (“Mister” Bush), phony outrage (“frightening”, “dangerous”), and stale guilt-by-association smears (“Richard Nixon”) do not make for heroic journalism. They are the tools of demagogues, tricksters, and propagandists. And they are at heart un-American, as is Herr Olbermann’s “special comment”.
So that’s topic 1. Topic 2: We haven’t worshipped at the altar of the lovely KP in awhile, so I’ll throw it open for debate. Girl next door or supervamp?
