SOMEHOW antithetical to it?

HUH?

They’ve undermined their mission, in some cases accused them of murder...

if this were a different time, these goons would have been shot for sedition and treason by one CIC General George Washington!

Holy crap, this guy is like an animatronic theme park attraction, spewing the same inane crap with the same stiff hand gestures every freaking night for eternity.

It's a small world after all. It's a small world after all. It's a small world after all.

Weak, insolent and insulting morons like Olbermann KNOW they can get away with comments like that — because Dueling is illegal....

Nope. Let him keeping speaking. Morons like him are poster children for why no Democrat should ever be allowed near the White House - not even to deliver a pizza.

Keith Olberdork is not only ‘antithetical’ to the military, he is not worth a cup of the sewage in the base latrine....

You are right about that. Drudge can get it more much attention than anyone.

Well the only problem with that, is that stupid people are allowed to vote.

I kid you not at my wife’s place of work the women there were talking about voting for Obama and how they were gonna vote for him because he’s cute and for CHANGE!

He’s black and young and for change...they didn’t even have the slightest idea if he was democrat or Reublican!

He could be the canddiate of rape or mass suicide and they’d vote for him just as sure as day!

Shut up, Olbermann, and your DU audience can shut up, too.

Olbermann is close to certifiable, so it doesn’t matter what he prattles on about.

How do we contact MSNBC and tell them that they should suspend him also?

“...and to portray your party as the one associated with the military, and your opponents as the ones somehow antithetical to it.”

What portrayal? Are there any Democrats left in the military?

Except for a few green recruits, why would there be? The last remaining few that were in the military are now out, and form the few *actual* Iraq and Afghanistan veterans against the war.

There are probably more Wiccans in the military than Democrats.

MATTHEWS: Is this corrupt, what Hillary Clinton is doing, holding fund-raisers with lobbyists, pimping them, basically, saying, if you give money to me, you lobbyists, I will sit you down to lunch with members of Congress, chairmen of committees, and they will sit around with you and you will get to be friends with each other, but give me the money first, and I will set up those deals, those lunches?

Petraeus for president in 2012! Let’s assume he’s a conservative. Does anyone know what party he belongs to?

He may be there on the air, but I wouldn’t recognize him if he was in WalMart welcoming me.

I’m afraid that if we pay too much attention to Olbermann he’ll get a reputation as a “conservative slayer” and be turned into a big-time celebrity by his benefactors. (In fact, it’s already happening.) I’d LOVE to see him go up against someone like Krauthammer (an appropriate name in this case), who actually has some historical knowledge, and would pin Olbermann’s ass to the wall. And it’s for that reason that I’ve never seen Olbermann - in the few times I’ve watched him - allow a conservative to come on the program and debate with him. He just spouts his inanities without fear of contradiction or fact-checking.

Pimpin’ is an instantly overused word, used by those with limited intelligence.

Maybe the difference is that Shuster appears to be a legitimate journalist sort of and reporters shouldn’t use such language in their stories, but no one would ever mistake Olbermann for a legitimate anything, especially a serious newsman, so anything he says is excused.......

You’re right of course — the clown thrives on notoriety and publicity...he’s got zero talent.

And - if you can believe a lady he has “known” in the biblical sense — he is lacking in the department of manly “hardware”...

But — I’m at least 2 centuries forward of where I was meant to be born...
I feel this strong urge to step out into a dusty street and call any offender out to face me and defend himself....
