Undoubtedly frustrated in the wake of Van Jones’ resignation, it appears as though MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann has just this morning put out a desperate plea at The Daily Kos:
I don’t know why I’ve got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes.
No, even now, I refuse to go all caps.
No, sending me links to the last two Countdowns with my own de-constructions of his biblical vision quality Communist/Fascist/Socialist/Zimbalist art at Rockefeller Center (where, curiously, he works, Comrade) doesn’t count. Nor does sending me links to specious inappropriate point-underscoring prove-you’re-innocent made-up rumors.
It’s the same old politics of personal destruction and the left, led by its Windbag in Chief, is looking to attack anyone pointing out the failures of Barack Obama’s administration in the same way they attacked Sarah Palin.
Honestly, all this does is underscore the left’s inherent cowardice, not to mention the sort of media bias that would have Edward R. Murrow rolling in his grave. Olbermann and the half-dozen friends and family who watch his inane ramblings and faux outrage each night simply cannot present an argument based upon fact supporting what this administration is doing to our economy and national security. That’s what happens, I guess, when a brainless sportscaster reads Marx and gets inspired.
And, mark my words, it will backfire. This nation always has been, and is still, a center-right nation. Ordinary people in the flyover states, the very kind of people that Olbermann scoffs at from behind his pretentious eyewear, don’t like seeing people on the right or the left being destroyed personally, not in the way the left went after Palin and Joe Wurzelbacher, or how they obviously plan to go after Glenn Beck. This, like the efforts undertaken by Congress to exponentially expand the size, scope and reach of the federal government through measures like health care reform and cap-and-trade, will only drive the American people further and further away from the very message that biased broadcasters like Olbermann are trying to disseminate and perpetuate.
Congratulations, Democratic Party. By putting your faith in politicians like Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, and in personalities like Keith Olbermann, you will have effectively destroyed yourselves.
