Olbermann tries to bore his few remaining viewers to death

by editor on April 20, 2010

Keith Olbermann often read James Thurber to his dying father. We’re pretty sure that if we could get our hands on Dad Olbermann’s death certificate, the cause of death would be listed as “Boredom.”

Knee slappers. Real knee slappers. If by “knee slapper” you really mean stuff designed to drive viewers to the remote control.

The only possible answer for this remarkably self-indulgent presentation is that Olbermann has photos of NBC executives at that bestiality farm in Washington. The only possible answer.

Well, not only has this post, but also the responses, proved to me that this country’s wealthy have succeeded in dumbing down the population, and turning us into haters. I don’t really know why I’m bothering to respond. The only reason I can fathom is that perhaps one person out there will read it (remember reading, literature, culture?), and feel like fighting to save what is left of our country’s history. News is not only current events, but a reflection of where we come from, leading to a better perspective on where we are headed.
I’m not surprised to read some of these comments. Like attracts like. I’m just surprised that anyone would spend their time and energy focusing on a virtuous man’s good intentions, only to hate on him. I guess it’s easier to hate things we don’t understand, or that make us feel insecure, than actually pick up a book and educate ourselves, expose ourselves to new ideas (and old ones).

Ok. Now tell us “obviously too young to know anything” why doesn’t your post give us an idea of how to link the rantings of an idiot like Olbermann to real education? Like you said, books are the answer but the books must be written by someone who really tries to understand our history, not by some televangelist who tries to tell you his theories are the only theories you need to listen to.

Now that we have established this little fact name one book this Olbermann televangelist fool has written. Can you name just one?

You are bored by an American original Thurber?

Well, that certainly proves what a LOSER you are. One does not even have to regard your hatred of Olbermann—a man whose shoes you should be shining—as further evidence of your being a loser.

It’s his shoes we should be shining? BS! I ain’t shining his shoes, & I ain’t kissing his ass. Not many people give a crap about BathTubBoy & his pompus ass. His ratings(or lack there of)speak to that, & when he is officially over, you will hear stories about what a total pain in the ass he has been everywhere he’s ever been. He is a overpaid diva, who is not worth the trouble. His bosses at 30 Rock should have cut their losses, but they are too dumb to understand what damage he is doing to the NBC brand.

Keith Olbermann may be communicating on a level that is seldom understood and rarely appreciated, but classless bashing of his late father is not really warranted.

There are not enough recreational drugs in the world to get me stoned enough to say I appreciated Keith Olbermann.

Yeah, & the mentally ill & the borderline mentally retarded have not had national TV shows until MSNBC either.

As for Olby’s father, my guess is that he died to get away from Keith. But that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

I really enjoy Keith and I especially enjoy the book readings. I think they are hysterical. It all goes to your individual points of view and biases, I guess. And for people who are bored to death, there are a thousand other channels to watch. Cheers everyone! Happy Fathers Day to all the daddies!

BathTubBoy is funny, but not on purpose. He thinks he matters, & that’s why he’s funny.

Some people are funny on purpose, and that’s fun to watch. Others, like Olbermann, it just comes out that way. And then the really funny part is when they look at you, wondering why you are laughing at them, when they are being absolutely serious. That’s when I really get to laughing.

Hey ditto heads!

I’ve always enjoyed watching Keith Olbermann, I think he’s entertaining and far more informative than the talking mannequins on Fox News. I think the James Thurber readings are a nice touch and a tribute to his recently passed away dad..

All the cable news programs’ audiences are down from last year tho Fox News seems to have taken a bigger hit than MSNBC.. All cable news take a back seat to broadcast tv..

Even Sen. Inhofe, conservative from Oklahoma, said people should get their news from a variety of sources.. (Tho I do think his move to bring more misery to thousands of unemployed is a bit hypocritical as he and his buddies continue to shovel billions in corporate welfare to the wealthy)

I do think (imho) that Glenn Beck and his Nazi-tourette should be in an asylum..

I think Rachel Maddow is a great investigative reporter in the vein that Geraldo Rivera used to be..

BTW.. I believe in God, in special re-creation (There’s a word in Genesis 1 that should be translated “became” instead of “was.. can make a big difference), that any law abiding citizen should have the right to own a gun, that my tax dollars shouldn’t go to perform abortion unless the mother’s life is in danger..

But I also believe we should have had national health insurance in our country decades ago like all other industrial nations have.. It’s a disgrace we spend billions on the rich and send billions to foreign countries while letting thousands die and suffer in this country for lack of medical attention..

It’s time to reexamine the policies that susidize the rich and the worldwide corporations.. Far past time change campaign contributions laws to encourage
politicians to do what’s best for the country and not what’s most profitable for their corporate overlords..

Time to change “Of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporartions” back to “of the people, by the people, for the people”.. (btw, that popular saying comes not from the constitution, or the declaration of Independence (written by Thomas Jefferson btw) but from Lincoln’s Gettsyburg’s address).

Yes, if we had instituted “free” health care decades ago, like the others, our could already be failing just as bad as theirs are. Yaaaay!

Yeah, we could be failing as bad as Canada and Sweden — instead of having a second-rate for-profit “healthcare” system where doctors bow down to insurance bureaucrats and people get screwed out of their own homes.

GREAT system…I can really see why you want to defend it. LOL

What’s the big deal? I’ve enjoyed the Friday’s with Thurber myself.

I guess you folks should just go back to eating your Alpo and watching Nascar.

He has video of NBC execs raping children during a satanic ritual. That is the only explanation for the continued employment of a guy…

1.) whose ratings are so bad that they actually go up when he has a guest host
2.) does that boring Alastaire Cooke impression during an alleged news show

I miss Alistair Cooke, he used to do something called “Letter from America” on the BBC Worldservice. It was a 15 minute segment where he spoke his mind & told stories. He passed away in 2004, & I still miss him.

I also remember a Sesame Street parody featuring the Cookie Monster. It was called Monsterpiece Theater, & I still get a laugh looking back. Mr.Cooke had a sense of humor about it, & he should because it was funny.

That leads us to Disasterpiece Theater, or Master-Piece-of-crap theater, with our hero, BathTubBoy. It’s sad to see this idiot ripping off Alistair Cooke, & Edward R. Murrow, & whoever else he thinks he is, or wants to be. When Olby is over & done with, he will be like Marlon Brando in the 1954 film “On The Waterfront”…

…& I think we all know that Olby is a bum.

This is the most ridiculous segment in the history of political shows.

MSNBC is the place for politics, not poetry.

This “Friday with Thurber” thing is an epic fail.

Well, in lieu of real news or libtard lies, they decided to settle on “filler” due to the lack of commercial sponsors.
