Olberdork Smacked Down By Dallas Tea Party

This is so hilarious!  As someone who has stood at Tea Parties with people of all persuasions and I am gay myself, I found this to be the perfect smack down of the idiots on BSNBC.

You Might Be a Redneck Racist If…

I thought the mainstream media coverage of the tea parties around the country on Wednesday was vicious, slanted and full of lies, but now that coverage seems more like puppy dog tails and sugar compared to the rhetoric that spilled out of Janeane Garofalo’s mouth when she was a guest on Countdown with Keith Olberdork.  Janeane, who is a washed up liberal hack actress who failed at a radio show on Air America and has to take bit parts on shows beloved by conservatives, made the following comment:

“You know, there’s nothing more interesting than seeing a bunch of racists become confused and angry at a speech they’re not quite certain what he’s saying. It sounds right and then it doesn’t make sense. Which, let’s be very honest about what this is about. It’s not about bashing Democrats, it’s not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don’t know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of teabagging rednecks. And there is no way around that. And you know, you can tell these type of right wingers anything and they’ll believe it, except the truth. You tell them the truth and they become — it’s like showing Frankenstein’s monster fire. They become confused, and angry and highly volatile. That guy, causing them feelings they don’t know, because their limbic brain, we’ve discussed this before, the limbic brain inside a right-winger or Republican or conservative or your average white power activist, the limbic brain is much larger in their head space than in a reasonable person, and it’s pushing against the frontal lobe. So their synapses are misfiring. Is Bernie Goldberg listening? ”

So we are uninformed and historically illiterate?  And now being a conservative not only makes me a right wing extremist, it also puts me on par with white power activists.  If this was not so vile, I would laugh.  I mean “teabagging” is the last thing I am interested in since I’m a gay female.  I also think that makes me pretty far removed from being a red neck although I do live in the south. 

Let’s get this straight for you liberal loon baffoons:  If Obama was a big fat rich white guy, I would still be out protesting because it is his methods, his plans and his principles that I despise.  He is moving America to Marxism and plans to squelch my freedom.  Anyone who tries to take my freedom will receive my wrath.  If “24” doesn’t fire Garofalo, they will lose a ton of viewers.  And NBC, well, they already do not have any viewers.

Countdown With Olberdork Talks Tea Parties

This morning as I was flipping through the channels I came upon this gem of a show. Actually, every so often I check MSNBC to make sure that I am being accurate when I describe it as a left-wing Obama shilling biased piece of *bleep* network. I am still being accurate in that description. About five minutes into the show, David Shuster who was filling in for Olberdork interviewed Dan Gross of Newsweek about the tea parties taking place around the country. The video can be seen here.  Get out yourduct tape and read the following excerpts:

Shuster talked about the tea parties being “fluffed” by Fox News.  He also pointed out that “more of these things are supposedly unfolding…”  He continued by dogging the Washington D.C. party because Alan Keyes would be speaking there.  Shuster pointed out he was a failed presidential campaigner.  Shuster said, “The Republican groups behind this alledged movement… and the people ginning up the most planning for these movements work at Fox News.”

For this biased creep’s information – and so he can accurately report the facts in the future – no Republican group has anything to do with this.  This is non-partisan.  We spoke against both parties at the Orlando party on March 21st.  We’re sick of our government, period.  And Fox News has indeed jumped on the bandwagon, but that is the point: they joined us, not the other way around.  As a matter of fact, Glenn Beck was asked to be a keynote speaker at the Alamo Tea Party and he has decided to just be a part of the crowd so the focus is not on him.

Dan Gross called this movement “astroturf which is the opposite of grassroots.  Grassroots grows from the bottom up while astroturf comes from Washington conference rooms.”  I would say the lying was unbelievable if it were not that this schmuck writes for Newsweek.  Shuster asked who these protestors were and Gross replied we’re people against the bailouts, TARP, AIG bailout – the things that Bush did.  Was this suppose to offend us?  Yes, that is the point!  We’re mad at both parties – they just proved our argument.

When Gross was asked what we stand for, it was that we are against raising taxes and Shuster replied basically “for things that aggravate the situation.”  And then Shuster threw out this Obama talking point: “It’s the government only that can really inject money into the economy [at this time].”  Unbelievable!


Then Shuster asked Gross how the President should handle the tea parties.  Should he “ignore them, speak past them or counter them?”  Gross said that Obama should ignore them.  DO YOU NOTICE THE MISSING OPTION: LISTEN!!!!!!  How about the President listen to the people who he is leading?  How about that for a “change”? 

The great thing about this report though makes MSNBC look even more moronic then it already is and that is the fact that they ran this report.  I mean if this was some little movement that was “supposedly” going on that held no significance, then why are they even covering it and particularly in a pre-emptive fashion doing the report before the Tax Day Tea Parties?  Oh my, they are shaking in their $1,000 shoes.

Obama Getting Speech Pointers From Olbermann

We already know that Keith Olbermann is in the tank for Barack Obama, but I had no idea that he was part of Obama’s campaign staff – unpaid advisor I guess.  Olbermann was interviewing Obama on Monday and gave him this advice:

OLBERMANN: “To something from your own convention, maybe the most compelling moment of your acceptance speech in Denver was that one strongly voiced word, “enough.” A lot of people who have felt angry about what has been done to this country in the last seven or eight years have that same sense of urgency and simplicity to it.  Have you thought of using on the campaign trail and in your speaking engagements, more exclamation points? Have you thought of getting angrier?”

So today, Obama once again finds himself having to explain a gaffe.  I have given him the benefit of the doubt on the “lipstick on a pig comment”.  I think he has such horrible judgement that the thought never occurred to him that people would infer – on both sides of the campaign – he meant the comment towards Sarah Palin.  He didn’t apologize for the comment even though it was taken as a cut to Palin.  Instead he went back to what Olbermann told him to do and said this:

OBAMA: “Enough!  I don’t care what they say about me, but I love this country too much to let them take over another election with lies and phony outrage and swiftboat politics.  Enough is enough!”

I added the exclamation marks myself because Obama forgot the advice from Olbermann to get angrier.  He said the above in his usual monotone and without stutters as he read the prepared statement from a paper on his podium.  He is catching on that he can’t swing from the hip without sounding like a moron.  It only took him a few months.  Obama also said this was a made up controversy that takes away from the people and that we should be dealing with issues.  Is that why they harangued McCain about his houses and lobbyists and why they are attacking Sarah Palin on a personal level?  Yeah, that Obama just wants to stick to the issues. 

Sarah should have come out today and whipped on some lipstick as she said, “Well, this little piggy wants to talk about energy policies.”

NBC Is On A Slow Learning Curve

It was only a matter of time before NBC finally admitted that their dysfunctional family of liberal bias was no longer working for them.  Last place in convention coverage was what it took to wake up their senior management.  You see, America can handle a little lean to the left now and then, but NBC full on fell to the left.  There is freedom of the press in America, so they can report news any way that they want and we then have the freedom to criticize and not watch, which is exactly what viewers are doing.  I’m sure media executives for NBC appreciated hearing “N-B-C” chanted from the GOP convention floor when Sarah Palin spoke about the Washington elite and the media.  They weren’t fooling anybody.  It didn’t help that Chris Matthews and, especially, Keith Olbermann stopped trying to hide their bias.

MSNBC’s website says, “The tipping point appears to have come during the GOP convention when Olbermann criticized MSNBC for showing a Sept. 11-themed video prepared by the Republicans.”  Not exactly a topic that Americans are insensitive about.  And Olbermann had this to say when Pat Buchanan pointed out how thrilled people were with the Sarah Palin choice, “Those reading US Weekly with the picture of her and her youngest daughter with the word ‘scandal’ written across it won’t be so happy.”  Most people in the know realize that the US Weekly story had only half facts, as pointed out in a heated exchange between Megyn Kelly of FOX News and the editor of US Weekly, and that that editor has donated heavily to Obama’s campaign.

So Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann have been sent back to their commentator chairs where they belong and where they can discuss various tingles in their legs.  I never understood why NBC had these two jokers as political anchors anyway.  On the rare occassion that I caught them anchoring during political coverage, Keith Olbermann would talk over and dismiss Tim Russert as if Tim was some novice who didn’t belong and that people really wanted Keith.  He could have learned a whole lot from a guy like Russert who never displayed his bias.

I still think NBC is on a slow learning curve though.  They have so few good people out there, that they had to call Tom Brokaw out of retirement for Meet The Press.  And David Gregory will now be serving as political anchor.  Gregory is better at hiding his bias, but make no mistake, he is very liberal.  Tonight Olbermann airs an interview he conducted with Barack Obama.  Bill O’Reilly of Fox News airs part two of his interview with Obama.  I wonder who will come out on top – as if Olbermann is competition for anybody.  Keith, you blowhard, now you know – nobody cares what you think Mr. World’s Worst Person Anchor.

Liberal Panic Over Gov. Palin Pick Revealed In Comments

The liberals from both the political arena and media have been out in force making unbelievable comments in regards to John McCain’s choice of Sarah Palin as his running mate.  Wait a minute…not unbelievable, these are liberals after all.  First of all, I do need to touch on Michael Moore’s comments to Keith Olbermann on Countdown before Hurricane Gustav hit.  As he giggled he said that “Gustav is proof that there is a God in heaven” because it would disrupt the RNC.  Keith Olbermann had no reaction.  I wonder what Moore has to say now that New Orleans was not devastated and the RNC will now continue?  I wonder what he has to say to the families of the dead?  What a jerk!

Now on to Andrea Mitchell on Meet The Press.  She said this when referring to Sarah Palin, “She is not appealing to the same women who were really voting or supporting Hillary Clinton on ideological issues but they think they can peel off some of these working class women, not college educated…”  I guess I’m just a big dummy since I support Palin.  Umm…Andrea, I did manage to get a couple of years of college under my belt or doesn’t that count?

Speaking of idiots, P. Diddy decided to video blog about the decision.  I watched the whole excruciating four minutes.  Here are most of the comments with the “F” word bleeped out.  He must have said it more than ten times which is a definate sign of his grasp on the english language.  P. Diddy to McCain, “You are buggin’ the f*** out.  I don’t even understand what planet you are on now.  This is the job to be the leader of the free world, okay, no disrespect, I love you and hope you live to be 110, but things happen.  What if, God forbid, you get a running mate, you become president, Alaska, Alaska, Alaska, come on man.  I don’t even know if there are any black people in Alaska…[Do Inuits count, Diddy, or just your race?]  I’m callin’ all youth, all colors, all youth voters, Nov. 4th we have to protect our future because McCain is buggin’ the f*** out, okay.”  Then he suggests that McCain should have picked Michelle Obama.  He tells Sarah to stop playin’.  He claims he will bring millions out to the polls.  He continues, “What is the reality in Alaska?  There’s not even any crackheads in Alaska.  There’s not even any, no black people, there’s not even no like crime, like foreign policies, you may all be versed on foreign policies, you all need to get versed on black policies, youth policies, we’re the future.”  Sure am glad Diddy knows what is important.  Yeah, those “black policies” will make all the difference.  Wait, doesn’t Obama transcend race?

Eleanor Clift of Newsweek had this to say upon hearing that Sarah Palin was the pick, “This is not a serious choice.  It makes it look like a made for TV movie.  If the media reaction is anything, it’s been literally laughter in many places across news…in very, very many newsrooms.”  Umm…the news I watched seemed to be in a panic to get information and now is attacking.  Doesn’t sound like they are laughing to me.  Sounds more like fear to me.

And Barack Obama and his campaign are in such a panic that they are choosing to ignore the fact that Sarah Palin is Governor of Alaska.  An initial press release which was retracted after referring to Palin only as “former mayor of a town of 9,000”.  Obama in an interview with Anderson Cooper on Monday night talked as if Palin was still just a mayor and compared himself to her along those lines knowing that if he compared himself to a governor he would lose no matter how small the population of a state is.

Oh my, see the liberals, see how they run…

Tim Russert: A Truly Fair And Nice Man

I’ve spent most of last night and this morning listening to the coverage of Tim Russert’s sudden passing.  I was in shock myself yesterday afternoon when the news came over the radio.  You just don’t expect someone so well known and relatively young to just drop dead.  Tim Russert and Meet The Press were really the ones who helped me cut my teeth in the world of politics.  His sense of fairness and truth and the way he would pin any politician to the wall were great.  As the main stream media became a far left cheerleader, Russert kept his even hand and it was refreshing.  For the past three years, I watched Meet The Press almost religiously.  I loved the way that his eyes were always smiling no matter what the rest of his face was doing.

When Russert was doing his book tour for the book he wrote about his father, we were all introduced to another side that made him even more like the every-man he appeared to be.  It was touching to see this tough political guy being so soft when speaking of his father.  It really is terribly tragic that his son, Luke, will always be remembering his father’s death during Father’s Day from now on.

During the primaries, I would occassionally switch to MSNBC to see if Russert was on with his little white eraser board that became his election trademark.  It was always disheartening to see that NBC thought so little of him as to put him to the side of Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, almost as if he were their sidekick.  I also forced myself to watch much of MSNBC’s coverage yesterday because these people were his collegues.  It was not easy, but not because they all seemed so choked up.  I know reporters try to remain unemotional, but come on, tear up a little.  And listening to the blowhard Olbermann speak wistfully of Russert and comment on how he wished he could be more like Russert with his fairness.  Give me a break!  Olbermann is probably salivating over Russert’s seat right now.  He has no desire to be fair and doesn’t even pretend to want to be.  He is as far left as can be.  And then here comes Chris Matthews.  What an asshole!  If anyone saw his comments last night, regardless of political affiliation, it probably made you sick too.  He went off into an anti-Iraq war rant as he and Olbermann discussed Russert’s support of the troops and of the war because Russert felt we were threatened with nuclear weapons.  Bad show Matthews!  You should spend this weekend reflecting on the life of a man who America mourns regardless of who they are – a man who was known to everybody and I’m betting liked by everyone.  Russert was a man that demanded respect just for being who he was.  He was a true American patriot and will be sorely missed.  God bless to the Russert family!
