The Olbermann Dilemma

Posted January 22nd, 2011 by Iron Mike

I know this won’t break many RRB hearts, – Keith Olbermann was fired Friday  by the new owners of NBC – Comcast.  He’s out on his ass.  The one-time mediocre sportscaster turned Bush-hating then Obama-worshiping, then Sarah Palin hating political sniper is available for hire. 

The dilemma?  Who wants to hire a poison-dripping self-obsessed maniac to destroy their network’s credibility?  And if not a network, where is a local radio or TV market with sufficient far-left moonbat fans to support a new Olbermann Countdown?  I can only imagine San Francisco or Cambridge.

In fairness, Olberman did not single-handedly destroy MSNBC.  He had help.  Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow come quickly to mind.  They’ll be getting their pink slips soonly methinks.  After all, the FCC just approved the sale today – and Olbermann was out the door before the sun went down.  Years of bashing Bush and three years of serious sucking up to the Obama Cartel – now all for naught.

The Ego in his Glory

Olbermann is the poster boy for what Joe Stalin used to call a ‘useful idiot’;  – someone who let’s their own natural enthusiasm drive them to do the Party’s chores, – without needing any prodding, any guidance, or any incentives. 

Keith, you will always be an idiot, but your days of being useful to Obama are over.

Yours was a job the Obama Stimulus could not save.  You’ve suddenly become what all of Obama’s friends and family are – yesterday’s news.  Just ask the Reverend Wright, or Obama’s brother Mark in China – who he visited for five (5) minutes.  You’ve been ridden hard and put up wet.  Next stop is the glue factory. 

Or, . . . maybe Oprah’s new network OWN?  She has an estimated $2.4 Billion to play with, and we know she loves Obama [so openly that Michelle hates her guts] and this new network of hers ~ might ~ be a place for a totally loose left-wing cannon.  

Keith,  remember that old adage about being nice to people you pass on your way up – because you’ll meet them again on your way down.   Last year even your girlfriend had enough of you.   This year it’s a whole network [really a whole nation].  We’re watching to see who’ll buy you a beer or makes you a sandwich next week.  

If all else fails Keith, you might consider a religious calling.  In the French Alps there is an order of Carthusian monks who still accept new members.  It could be a good fit.  They’re a silent order.

    David Letterman’s hate is as old as some ancient Hebrew prophets.
    Speaking of anti-Semitism, it’s Jerry Falwell and other fundy leaders who’ve gleefully predicted that in the future EVERY nation will be against Israel (an international first?) and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed, right?
    Wrong! It’s the ancient Hebrew prophet Zechariah who predicted all this in the 13th and 14th chapters of his book! The last prophet, Malachi, explains why this future Holocaust will outdo even Hitler’s by stating that “Judah hath dealt treacherously” and “the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this” and asks “Why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother?”
    Haven’t evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the recent filthy, hate-filled, back-stabbing tirades by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard, Larry David, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher, Joan Rivers and Sarah Silverman) against leading evangelicals like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann, and explain why most Jewish leaders have seemingly condoned Palin’s continuing “crucifixion”!
    While the above anti-evangelical haters are tragically turning comedy into tragedy, they are helping to speed up and fulfill the Final Holocaust a la Zechariah and Malachi, thus helping to make the Bible even more believable!
    For other unusual goodies on Google, type in “Obama Fulfilling the Bible,” “Michelle Obama’s Allah-day,” “Un-Americans Fight Franklin Graham,” “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty,” and “Stamping Out Harold Camping.”

    Karl, I am really more perplexed than usual with your rambling comment above. What does this have to do with Keith Olbermann?

    Seems as though Karl is using RR for his own purposes. He discredits both himself, and RR.
