Waiting for a transcript, but I heard Lawrence O'Donnell shout on today's TMG that he could care less that the troops are demoralized by Kerry's incessant cynicism about the Iraq war. Essentially he said they should keep their mouths shut and fight. I almost fell out of my chair. Did anybody else hear the exchange? Shocking!
Please write to McLaughlin producers at firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know that O'Donnell crossed the line of decency and really does not deserve to have access to an otherwise prestigious panel.
I'll post the transcript as soon as it is available. If anybody has TiVo or VHS, please record this program at the earliest opportunity. I am not convinced the transcript will catch all the unbelievable words that O'Donnell used. TMG needs to feel the heat on this one and soldiers should be informed how little respect Democrat operatives like O'Donnell (former writer for NBC's West Wing and campaign staffer of the last great Democrat Senator Patrick Moynihan)have for our fighting men and women who are putting their lives on the line for all of us.
Send the video to Sean Hannity, he'll see to it that the troops understand exactly where these assholes are coming from.
I'm writing the email right now.
Kerry's remarks are going to lose us this war.
And things like today's NYT article accusing the pres of LYING AND TREASON have to be adressed too.
I'm emailing them next.
I really would...
Just another CLASSIC EXAMPLE of the anti-military, anti-Americanism if the RADICAL LEFTIST DEMS.
Fine patriots -- now tell me THEY GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THIS COUNTRY ????
Lawrence O'Donnell is a prick on the subject of war. Especially if any sort of scrutiny is applied to Kerry's Vietnam service, O'Donnell goes ballistic, leading me to believe his own service (or lack thereof) is a sore spot for him.
O'Donnell (any relation to Rosie?) was almost transfigured in that exchange -- he was lit, eyes bulging, suffused by a baleful inner glow, as if he were inspirited by Pazuzu.
That's what happens when 'Rats get up a bit in the polls. They revert to their mephistophelean state.
That's just great.....that's it, Im now behind my hubby's desire to retire, depending on the election outcome.....we had eight years of that shit, no more!
Here is the bio of the frothing lunatic bastard. He was so out of line I am still almost speechless. We need to get on this and quick!

Born in Boston, Massachusetts, O'Donnell is a graduate of Harvard College (Class of 1976). He lives in Los Angeles.
I nearly shot my TV the last time he spoke on PMSNBC.
The guy needs his clock cleaned.
O'Donnell is the poster boy of the rabid and hateful left. I cannot believe McLaughlin did not step in to put an end to his frothy rant. It's possible he did not hear exactly what he said in the exchange. I know Blankly and Buchanan heard him and they were visibly angry and attempted to respond before McLaughlin quickly moved to the next topic.
p.s. A reptilian mephistopheles...
McLaughlin's pro-Kerry. They probably rehearsed the comments McL was too insecure to make by himself.
Lawrece O'Donnell is an EVIL person with a smile on his face....
He's a prick on the subject of anything not involving a 'Rat in the White House -- look at West Wing, which he produced for the first two seasons. He even portrayed Jeb Bartlett's uncaring, b@stardly dad in one episode, playing Bartlett Senior as a nasty, Republicanoid gold-plated louse.
O'Donnell's an UltraRat. Check his vita at a 'Rat-friendly site, here.
He's been getting more and more agitated as he sees his "golden candidate" sink further and further.
As a 'Rat he keeps hoping. As an analyst (irrespective of his words) he can see the writing on the all.
