Lawrence O'Donnell on Capital Report
ChicagoRighty

Posted on 11/11/2004 4:27:59 PM PST by ChicagoRighty

Did anyone else witness the tirade on poor red states and rich blue states by Lawrence O'Donnell?

O'Donnell was absolutely out of his head. Quite like the 'liar, liar' rant with John O'Neil on Scarborough.

Hinderocker from powerline was refuting him, but O'Donnell was literally embarrasing. The DIMs have come unhinged.

I saw him last week on McLaughlin. I seriously believe that he's in the middle of a nervous break down.

Yes, it was a continuation of that rant. He is now spouting numbers and saying how poor Alabama, Montana, the Dakotas are and forever will be. He is screaming about how the red states don't get it.

I'm afraid this blue state doesn't get it... at least some of the main counties.

He's unhinged. A lunatic in need of serious psychiatric help or maybe a shotgun would do.

He seems more determined than ever. There is no remorse in this guy's tone, face, demeanor. His eyes were popping out.

I remember O'Donnell being an "okay" liberal a while ago, he seemed reasonable and cool-headed enough to me. But I noticed that as the election came closer, something happened to him--he became so overtly partisan to the point of losing all sanity and manners. It was creepy and unnerving.

Yes, same here. Now you can count on him getting the other guests to sort of shake their heads at what he is saying. More and more radical. More and more off the deep end.

Who cares? LOD has been off his meds for so long he can't do anything but rage and slander in a libelous manner. Let him keep talking he's the best GOP campaign add there is for '08. By then he'll have angered so many folks that Muskies win will look huge by comparison.

I saw him pop a neck vein on McLauglin Group last week, shouting that the blue states should secede. I think maybe he hasn't had all his shots.

I remember seeing him shortly before the Swiftees story came out. A question was fed him about Vietnam and he acted real weird. I think he felt that an anti-Vietnam story was about to come out and he self-righteously believed that he would be a hero in the fight.

Loser.

Rather than just reporting on it, I think he's trying to start a secession move.

I know here in Texas, it is on a 6:00 and 9:00 so I would imagine it replays everywhere.

I just saw him too. It is the unmasked face of the Democrat party. Pure HATRED for everyone they disagree with. They are not merely satisfied with ranting now, but the days of a balanced discussion is over. The talking is over, the voting is over, they must be defeated on whatever battlefields they choose. They must be crushed.

Damn! I missed it!

It would have been good to see his explode...........again.

I was too busy watching Krris Math-hughs complain about how rude and unprofessional the Bush Administration is for sending a low level State Dept. Undersecretary to Errorfat's funeral and that someone like Errorfat deserved much better treatment.

From Power line blog:

Rocket Man is scheduled to appear on CNBC's Capital Report this evening at 7:00 and 10:00 p.m. (Eastern), 6:00 and and 9:00 p.m. (Central). At last word he was to appear with Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss -- what else? -- the possible secession of the blue states. You wouldn't want to miss it, would you?

Apparently Lawrence doesn't know how well the red states rank on the Generosity Index and what a poor showing those superior blue states make.

First they rank the states by how much they have and then they compare that to how much they give to determine how generous they are. Link below.

The past week has been a great study in what happens to some grops of people when their entire world view is shattered. Some merely mope and are depressed, some like O'Donnell become so unglued and angry that they come up with ideas that are so utterly ridiculous as to be comical.

Well, I for one have had a great time watching the Rats implode over the last week and really hope it doesn't end too soon.

O'Donnel and Olberman at MSNBC are closet gays who are personally offended that they can't marry their lovers because of the Republicans.

Beckel is just as hateful (maybe more-so) but with less protruding veins.

As I watch O'Donnel I keep thinking what his old boss would say were he still alive. Pat Moynihan was a Democrat in the days when Democrats were still patriots( I speak of leadership here, not the union guys working the line in the Chevy plant in KC). Pat Moynihan worked with Richard Nixon. Refuted McGovern when he campaigned on a 33% defense cut in 72. Pat Moynihan would drink with and to his political rivals. He had principles from which he would not retreat, and patriotism was one of these. I cannot believe he would feel anything but disgust at his former aide's contemptible rantings.

---I use to think he was okay too. In 2000, he was very fair and balanced but lately he has gone way over the edge. I'm wondering if he isn't on drugs

I remember that... in retrospect, he seemed to just be 'auditioning'.... now he is really being hateful. He seems 'fed up'.
