Keith Olbermann Is An Idiot

Wow. Just wow.

First, I've never heard anyone call Obama anything close to this kind of stuff. Socialist? We have that in Obama's own words. Liberal? Even Olbermann would agree with that!

Here is the transcript of what Olbermann said:

Lawrence O’Donnell joins me next on the future of health care reform, but first we stay in Massachusetts for the first of tonight’s "Quick Comments." I wanted to apologize for calling Senator-elect Scott Brown an "irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, tea bagging, supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees." I’m sorry, I left out the word "sexist."

And I left out the story of the day Brown, upset by online criticism from some students, went to the school and swore at the entire student body. I’m very sorry. For all the blowback from the right on this comment from people who regularly mutter worse things about Barack Obama in their sleep, when it came to the facts that I cited to paint this picture of this horrifically unqualified Senator-elect, we have heard nothing – no contrary evidence, no refutation, not even a plausible excuse. And to the point of excuse, it can be argued that Brown should have been given the benefit of the doubt after a supporter shouted at him that they should "shove a curling iron up Martha Coakley’s butt" that he did not hear that, that when Brown then said "we can do this," he was not responding to the lunatic in the crowd.

But the Boston Globe makes an unanswerable point about that. Even if Brown really didn’t hear it, where was his later statement decrying the obscenity and violence his supporter had suggested? Not only did Mr. Brown not offer even the mildest reproach, but when pressed for one by Senator Kerry, Brown replied only that people are tired of John Kerry’s partisan politics. In Senator-elect Brown, we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, sexist, ex-nude model, tea bagging supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees. And if he or you don’t like that characterization, my answer to you is simple: Disprove it because he hasn’t.
All of this was from last night's show, in response to the backlash he received for comments about Scott Brown he made the night before:
Lost in the angst about Obama and Coakley is the little-recognized real headline of this vote. You have heard Scott Brown speculating, talking out of his bare bottom, about whether or not the President of the United States was born out of wedlock. You have heard Scott Brown respond to the shout from a supporter that they should stick a curling iron into Ms. Coakley's rectum with the answer, "We can do this."

You may not have heard Scott Brown support a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, or describing two women having a child as being quote, "Just not normal." You may not have heard Scott Brown associating himself with the Tea Party movement, perhaps the saddest collection of people who don't want to admit why they really hate since the racists of the South in the sixties insisted they were really just concerned about states' rights. You may not of heard Scott Brown voting against paid leaves of absence for Massachusetts Red Cross workers who had gone to New York to help after 9/11.

In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history, this man would have been laughed off the stage as an unqualified and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States.
This proves how detached from reality Olbermann really is. Keith thinks that a mere accusation on his part constitutes a fact. This is typical of liberals. Spend any amount of time on a political message forum and you'll get liberals that use this tactic all the time. It goes like this:
LiberalPoster: Rush Limbaugh once said that homosexuals should be rounded up and gassed.

ConservativePoster: He did not, where are you getting that?

LiberalPoster: Yes he did, everyone knows it.

ConservativePoster: Come on that is completely unmerited.

LiberalPoster: Why don't you disprove that he said it instead of attacking me personally?

ConservativePoster: First, how did I attack you and second, how do you disprove that someone didn't say something? By posting everything they've ever said?

LiberalPoster: AHA! You admit you can't disprove that Rush said that. And your attack on me was calling me unmerited!
Democrats live by the credo "say something enough and loud enough and eventually people will believe it". The fact is that Olbermann proved nothing with his accusations. And to come back the next night with this faux apology just shows how classless Olbermann is.

The burden of proof is on Olbermann, not on Scott Brown or the conservatives to disprove his accusations. Let me give you another illustration.
Keith Olbermann is a cross-dressing, jew hating, communist that kills puppies and kittens in horrific ways.
There, I just stated several facts and it is now up to Keith Olbermann to disprove them! Keith needs to fight each of my "facts" and show why he isn't that or didn't do that.

Liberals. The country would be so much better without them!

Recent Events: Why I Haven't Been Posting Much

I recently had to serve jury duty in federal court. That is why I haven't blogged much over the last couple of weeks. I ended up getting put into a special pool for a case, and due to the nature of the case the judge gave us stern warnings not to do any internet research related to the case.

To comply, I stuck to only national politics, avoided local radio and TV news, and since I had to disclose the existence of this blog, I backed away from it for a few days.

I got a call about an hour ago saying I had been excused from the jury. That is good news since it was going to be about a 5 week trial. But I was also disappointed as I feel I would have done an excellent job as a juror, and I would have ruled fairly and impartially in the case.

Though I believe I can now talk, and even write, about the case, I think I will leave it at this, except to post this Detroit News article. Yes, I am the conservative blogger mentioned in this article.

UPDATE! Det News took the story down, here it is:

15 potential jurors seated in Riddle trial
Paul Egan / The Detroit News

Detroit -- Jury selection for political consultant Sam Riddle's political corruption trial in federal court is to resume Tuesday after 15 prospective jurors were seated Monday.

U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn wants to assemble a pool of 31-35 prospective jurors before government and defense lawyers use challenges to whittle the number to 15.

The trial itself will start Jan. 25 and is expected to last a month.


Of 100 prospective jurors who filled out questionnaires in the case, 33 were excluded by agreement of government and defense lawyers and not asked to show up at the courthouse Monday because of obvious bias or hardship issues.

At about 12:30 p.m. Monday, Cohn began one-on-one questioning of the remaining potential jurors. Of the 19 he questioned Monday, three were excused because serving on the jury would be a personal or financial hardship and one was excused because she told the judge she had already formed an opinion in the case.

Among those seated was a conservative blogger who had written in his blog about former Detroit City Councilwoman Monica Conyers, calling her a "typical liberal" who "interjects race into almost every issue."

Riddle faces extortion-related charges stemming from his time as a top aide to Conyers, who pleaded guilty to bribery this summer. At least one of the charges he faces alleges he delivered a bribe to Conyers.

But Cohn ruled the blogger could be seated in the jury pool after the man told the judge he can set aside any opinions he has about Conyers in giving Riddle a fair trial.

"She's not on trial here," said Cohn, who rejected arguments from Ann Arbor attorney John Minock that the man should be excused from the jury because of bias.

Although he is now in the pool, Minock has the option of using one of his "peremptory challenges" to remove the blogger from the jury, without stating a reason, later in the selection process. The defense team gets 10 such challenges; the government gets six.

Other prospective jurors questioned Monday included a flight attendant from Auburn Hills, a retired technical writer from Dearborn, a recently retired prison guard from Jackson, an information systems worker from Lake Orion Township, an office worker from Pontiac and a machine operator from Temperance.

Cohn Monday denied a motion filed Saturday by Riddle's lawyers asking for a delay in the trial because there were too few blacks in the jury pool.

In the motion, Riddle's attorneys said only nine out of the 100 prospective jurors who filled out questionnaires were black, as is Riddle. The eastern district of Michigan is more than 20 percent black.

Cohn said it's not required that the percentage of blacks on the jury mirror the percentage of blacks in the community, as long as blacks are not being systematically excluded from the jury pool.

"I am not unfamiliar with the efforts this district has put forth to comply with the Constitution," Cohn said. He said he will issue a written opinion stating more fully his reasons for denying the motion.

Cohn also denied a motion filed Monday to delay the trial, except to grant a one-week delay that he earlier said that he would probably give Riddle's attorneys. The trial was initially supposed to start to Jan. 19.

Riddle's lawyers, Minock and Edward Wishnow, said in a court filing there are too many recorded telephone calls picked up on wire taps, which number in the tens of thousands, and pages of grand jury transcripts and other documents for them to review to be ready to go to trial in the first corruption case.

"Counsel have both worked diligently to prepare for the trial, but it is clear that they will not be able to adequately prepare in the allotted time," the lawyers said. "There is simply too much material to be reviewed and absorbed, particularly the phone calls."

Riddle also faces a later trial in federal court on charges he and his former live-in companion, former state Rep. Mary Waters, bribed former Southfield City Councilman William Lattimore in connection with a pawn shop relocation.

Riddle also faces state charges stemming from an alleged domestic assault on Waters shortly before Christmas. (313) 222-2069

P.S. I apologize for some of the podcasts no longer being available in the above links. Deminski and Doyle left their radio program, and the podcasts were apparently taken down. But at least you get to see what I said about Monica Conyers that became an issue during my jury service.

New Picture Of Senator Nelson Emerges

What am I basing that on? Read this article.

Click here: Nelson: We should have waited on health care

Notice these "head in the sand" moments:

Public reaction to the bill has been positive, Nelson said, contradicting Rasmussen Poll numbers.

“You have people totally stirred up with misinformation and confused,” Nelson said.

“The poll showed that 50 percent are Democrats that didn’t support the plan,” he said. “That’s hard to believe, that’s really hard to believe. It might be possible but it just doesn’t seem quite right. I don’t really give a lot of credibility to that particular poll.

So anyone that disagrees with him are misinformed and confused? Oh, and notice, he can't believe that 50% of Democrats could disagree, despite other polls showing bipartisan disapproval of health care reform.

Here is my favorite part:

“I’d have to say that nine out of ten people that come up to me thank me,” he said.

Yes Nelson, that is because the other 60% of your constituents are afraid to approach because they don't want jail time for what they might end up doing.

Nelson is a clown.

Bono Is An Idiot

Poor little rich rock star. Bono opened his mouth (or pen) and has proven that he is a fool.

Click here for story: Bono net policing idea draws fire

I guess having multi-millions isn't enough for Bono. As with most filthy rich people, too much is never enough.

Now I've documented on this blog before how Bono is into spending other people's money. I've long thought that he is a greedy headline grabber. Well this latest push proves that he is greedy. Trying to garner sympathy after years of making millions off of kids that barely have two pennies to rub together is ridiculous.

Want more proof? Here:

Click here for story: U2 to lower ticket prices

What Bono failed to mention in the press release was that yes, while ticket prices went down slightly, they made up for it by playing in the middle of the arena thereby increasing capacity!

Here is a message board exchange on the tour: click here: U2 ticket prices announced

How nice of U2. -puke- Now Bono has launched a new effort to stamp out internet piracy. He should ask Lars Ulrich of Metallica how his anti-Napster escapade worked out for him and his band.

Bono is an idiot.

Happy (as much as possible) New Year!

It is a new year, but we have the same ineffectual president in the White House. The guy is an empty suit, yet all the mainstream media can do is whine about how poor little Obama didn't get a relaxing vacation. Again.

Click here for story: Poor wittle Obama's vacation woes

Are they serious? Am I supposed to feel sorry for this guy? When George W. Bush went on vacation all the press did was bemoan the fact that the president was on vacation. Like he didn't deserve one. Now that Obama is president not only does he deserve a vacation, but anything of national importance that occurs should be ignored until he returns? Sickening.

Just further evidence of the difference in the treatment this president gets from the MSM from what President Bush received. Not only is Obama out of touch with the American people, but so are those that got him elected: the press.
