And yes, I realize there are republicans who do that too.
Yeah. That's the oddest thing about Keith. He reserves most of his wrath for people who slightly disagree with him about politics.Quote:
He attacks anyway who disagrees with him, even token conservatives like Joe Scarborough.
Although recently, he made Twitter the "Worst person in the world". He claimed that his Twitter page was a fraudulent page, set up by Fox News. The reason for this was because Keith misunderstood an e-mail.
Wait could you explain that, gcoll? What twitter-related e-mail did KO misunderstand?
At the time I was there, that extra year would have cost me another $19K. Now it's probably double that. But either way, you can understand why 3 years made more sense than 4 for me. :)
eta: One last comment on Olbermann. I don't watch him regularly, but I tune in from time to time. I've never seen him interview a conservative, or debate a conservative. He only seems to bring on people who reinforce his opinion.
And do also think it's worth saying (although this probably isn't the right thread for it, we've already gone there) that PHX's overuse (abuse? :rolleyes: ) of the "Hannity/Limbaugh talking points" line seems to me to be a case of doing a disservice to the very point he's trying to advance. Because by pushing that line so hard - and constantly - he discredits it and dilutes it.
But there is, in fact, a very real process that happens on a regular basis, in which ideas that are first propagated by Hannity et al find their way into the mainstream discourse through a series of steps that can be clearly traced (the most frequent seemingly being Hannity > Drudge > Halperin > CNN/etc.), whereas the take on things that Olberman et al are putting forth doesn't really get picked up on and grow its own legs in the same way - along the lines of what bb said:
Anyhow, getting back on topic:
"And the rumor is there's a film being made about the Monica Lewinsky affair called Special Relationship. The part of Hillary will be played by the beautiful actress Julianne Moore. And the part of Monica will be played by Michael Moore."
