Keith Olbermann Blasts Hillary Clinton Assassination Comment

Filed under: Elections,WTF — Tranimal @ 2:51 pm




  1. Olbermann is so serious in the clips I see him in…I used to watch him on ESPN like 10+ yrs ago, he was hella sarcastic and a goofball. I wonder if he’s always this serious now, I don’t watch his show.

    And Hillary’s comment…pretty dumb thing to say. Either she or her handlers made a mistake there.

  2. Keith Olbermann should cool his heels in ze brigg. This is not to discount his commentary in its entirety. I mean, his analysis of Clinton’s comment is sound and he really calls her for what she is — a desperate, racist White woman from a privileged class who, at the moment, hasn’t an ounce of figurative class in her current campaign. And lets her have it. (Well, not her LITERALLY, since she probably wasn’t there when he said it, but chances are that she’s watching this on youtube as we speak.) As he should, anyway.

    But when rhetoric and emotion overtake him I see the looming specter of a dude we all know and love… and his name rhymes with Gill Mo’Smiley. The difference is that Olbermann’s analysis is a little more grounded in reality. Still, I’m developing an allergic reaction to the histrionics.

    “…in a battered nation yearning to breathe free” — Oh, Olbermann!

    “You cannot SAY this.”

    Oh, but she can, my dearest. And she just DID. What — it’s a “free country,” ain’t it? (restrictions and limitations apply, see social security and immigration offices for details. freedom may cause hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, oppression, and death. Before you know how you’ll react to freedom, you should not drive or operate heavy machinery such as ice picks, rifles, or bullhorns. Please see your local governmental official to see if you are eligible for freedom.)


    Apologies, I speak in tangentials.

    What was I saying again?

    Oh yeah:

    * Hillary saying a f*cked up comment
    * Hillary covering her arse like usual
    * Hillary refusing to apologize for what was f*cked up about it. Again, an annoying, “I’m sorry you took it that way, but I’ll just say sorry so you’ll leave me alone. But I’m not really sorry. I’m a WINNER.”
    * Olbermann calling her on her craptaculous audacity.
    * Olbermann gittin O’RiLed up.
    * Olbermann offering valid evidence of her f*cked-up-ness and calling her on every other f*cked up racist-arse, xenophobic, irrational comment and political misstep. And some of her bullsh*t policies.
    * Olbermann gittin O’RiLed up again, O’RLY?

    Dar’s also undertones of “Shut up, Woman! Ur mekkin us Donkeys look bad!” with overtones of moral outrage. Beneath the whisper of citrus and chocolate from aged, Savannah oak barrels exist also undercurrents of… f e a r and judgment.
