Breakfast Scramble is now like Microsoft. It is now a feature and not merely a bug., Sarah v. Letterman, John Ziegler gets a wee bit snide and testy with MSNBC. View the video on Real Clear Politics.    I found Ziegler juvenile, but then I find Chris Matthews foolish and Keith Olbermann hyperbolic and disgusting.    So […]

Remember what I said about ‘it’s all about ideas, and not the messenger’? Case in point, from the comment section at Talk Left… a rare bit of agreement: Atrios links to Media Matters complaining that Tom Brokaw incorrectly stated that Oprah hosted Obama after he announced his Presidential candidacy. Of course Oprah did much more […]

Mrs. Clinton appeared on Poutdown with Keith Olberman.  So question, which one, the interviewer or the interviewee, was the sane one?   Allah Pundit, Hot Air, links to the video.   Ben Smith has a partial transcript. The problem for Mrs. Cinton’s threat is that it is simply not credible.  Oh sure, Mrs. Clinton would be more than […]

NBC tried serving up Keith Olbermann in prime time. The attempt failed… Miserably. Newsbusters: On Sunday, NewsBusters asked readers, “Will NBC Succeed in Making Olbermann Mainstream?” 70 percent of respondents said, “No, he’s too crazy.” Well, Nielsen ratings of his “Countdown” program aired Sunday evening on NBC validate this position, and wonderfully depict Olbermann as […]

Rich Lowry notes something that’s been unsettling to me the last several days: When an unimpeachably liberal former vice-presidential candidate of the Democratic party is likened to David Duke by a liberal media hero, the political apocalypse — or at least a grievance-politics cataclysm — is upon us. In one of his sputtering-mad “special comments” […]

Local Hero: Out of the thirty-six car pile up, me and Bit boggged about here and here, we have a local hero, from WHEC-TV: While dozens of cars and trucks were crashing into each other in blinding, blowing snow on I-390 Sunday, another driver may have prevented the accident from getting worse. A man driving […]

John Hawkins points out MSNBC‘s David Shuster isn’t alone. We all know by now about the controversy surrounding MSNBC’s David Shuster and his allegation that Chelsea Clinton was being “pimped” by her family in order to drum up support for her mother. He’s apologized twice, been suspended, and along with that rec’d a strong rebuke […]

Yesterday, I wrote about the New York State chapter of the NAG’s being pissed at Senator Oldsmobile.   I suppose giving a misogynic drunk a free pass on Chappaquiddick didn’t give the NAG’s the loyalty they thought their due.  The NAG’s thought they owned Senator Oldsmobile. The NAG- NY tirade does not seem to be playing too well […]

Bitsblog has a special place, can’t say just where, for Keith Olbermann.   I have found another blog which holds Olberman in like regard: Half of Keith’s audience watches him on Crooks and Liars. He’s got to stay in good with the netroots types, even if it means rooting for the loser. never even say Obama’s […]
