Posted on 02/22/2010 7:04:47 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
A mind may be a terrible thing to waste, but if you waste 15 million of them, apparently you get Texas.
That was Keith Olbermann tonight, doing his best to collectively piss off the biggest state in the contiguous U.S. after a recent poll showed that 60 percent of those polled in the cowboy state believe that humans and dinosaurs existed at the same time, or werent sure.
Were not really sure what Olbermanns goal here is except to rile up a bunch of people he even admits that he wishes there was a political association he could pin this on, but then goes on to spout numbers of Democrats versus Republicans who go to church.
Which is a little misleading
theres no data saying that everyone who answered stupidly (i.e. not believing in evolution, or unsure) had strong religious beliefs one way or another.

I’ll wager the candy a$$ punk wouldn’t trash Texas to a Texan’s face. He wouldn’t have a face.
Don’t Mess with Texas!
Coming from a man who probably NEVER leaves NYC. Folks.....the guy doesn’t even DRIVE!!!!!
“Doesn’t drive because of a loss of depth perception caused by a head injury. In 1980, he hit his head on the top of a subway door while running into the waiting car.”
I have to agree with him...we’re about to re-elect Perry a SECOND TIME, after he made it more than clear that he intends to sell off control of our highways to private companies for tolling (in some cases, foreign-owned companies). He even attempted to put toll booths on some of our existing freeways.
Now, since he faced at least a bit of a challenge, disowns his past. Did I mention per-mile tolling (via transponders and GPS)?
Anyway, Keith wins on this one, in my book.
i used to laugh at texan “skiers” while i lived in colorado (they had NO skills), but i sure as h@ll, wouldn’t tell them that at the lodge. ;)
I bet he’s pissed off over that Houston Tea Party video. I’ll try to find it.
Head injury. That explains a lot.
My oh my. He’s so brilliant, so educated, such a genius.
How does he stand himself?
Blame the liberal education system...that’s who.
Every day that mistake for a piece of humanity does his uttermost best to berate, belittle, condemn and pi$$ off anyone that disagrees with him.
That “splains” a lot.
Well it is a little too hot down here in the summers to grow Eggplants that resemble the shape of OlberDork.
For that we will allow him the little rant of jealousy.
Oh yeh... Texas women are way beyond his league to go for the bespectacled geek in the box.
As a matter of fact. Keith, we don’t know how far back Humans go, nor how close in time to ours the dinosaurs were. Depends, anyway, on what you call a dinosaur: some people think the birds belong to that group.
Just so you will know: If God had intended for Texans to ski, He would have made bull shite white and cold!
Houston Tea Party pummels the bloated Olbermann:
I’d love for him to try! I’m sure many Texas freepers here would be pleased to oblige the punk, including me...
Thank you! :)
SpongeBob: Hey Patrick, guess what I am!
Patrick: Um, stupid?
SpongeBob: No, I'm Texas!
Patrick:What's the difference?
(I'm a Texan, but even I got a big laugh from that Spongebob episode)
Yep! It does! ;-) Heh!
Overdick aside, if true, 60% is pretty scary.
Naw.... we don’t pay too much attention to these kind of pricks. He is Nobamas lover girl.
That would be a sloppy a$$ to kick, if you know what I mean.
60%? Thats a little more than the proportion of voters who elected Obama. So no, I am not surprised.
I figured it was the flaming lib in him. I bet the head injury is just a minor part of his overall mental health condition...
Sorry that happened to him, but I can’t help but saying - HOW STUPID IS THAT!!!???
No doubt. One shot in the head, and he would bawl like a girl.
I LOVE Sandy. She reminds me of myself. Southerner.....does karate....common sense.....;-)
So, in one sense, humans walked the earth at the same time "dinosaurs" did. Texans are smart.
Wish I was back in Texas,
The ocean’s no place for a squirrel,
Wish I was in Texas,
Prettiest place in the world, oh no.
I guess deep in my heart I’ll always be a Texas girl
I wanna go hommmme hooommmmmme hommme oh oh
Yoldle ay e oh, yodle ay e oh, yodle ay e oh, a lay-ee, a lay-ee.
I wanna wake up in Texas
I miss those wide open skies.
I miss my 20 acres, bar-b-ques,
And peacan pies, oh why?
When I’m so far from you, Texas, all I can do-o is cry.
I wanna go ho-oome,
Ho-oome, (a guy)I wanna go ho-ome!
I was just going to post that. (nice touch with Junior Brown singing the final 'I want to go home.')
har har! point noted.
i'm back in ohio, so i have lost all animosity towards texans, new mexicans, okkies, or californicators.
i just enjoy watching the grass grow, the paint dry, and the seeds turn into plants. ;)
“Where are my damn packets of ketchup? Don’t you know who I am?!”
And more people read about it on this thread than the actual number of Texans who tune in to his little cable access show. Party on Garth.
I started to say 1/2 the wimmens in Texas could whup OBeaks arse but it occured to me that EVERY grandma could too
Glad that you are enjoying life up there in “yankee land”.
I’m a 7th generation Texan—born here, and plan to die here. We had to do some moving around when my husband would get transferred with his job, but he’s retired now, so we’re back home. (Actually, he’s an Okie—but he swears he got here as fast as he could—LOL!)
A person could think old Keef Obeymann is gonna end up living in his mom’s basement permanently and have to have deliveries for everything. Maybe he already does; who knows. The guy must not get out much.
Vail would go out of business without Texans.
I don’t doubt you at all.
I bet hes pissed off over that Houston Tea Party video.
Ya mean this one where La Raza is attacking those attending the town hall?
Correct, my fellow Texan. (I assume because of your screen name.)
As Mr. Limbaugh says, media people need to build and hold the largest audience possible. It appears that Mr. Olberman is not aware of the economics of commercial broadcasting.
Fox Oscar, Keefie.
No, no, no! God did intend for Texans to ski - He gave us Colorado!
Ducking now (especially since I’m in Colorado at the moment).
How does this guy keep his head when he works around the NFL? There are some BIG Conservatives amongst that group.
With the way Gorebull warming has been going I think God is bringing Colorado to Texas.
I learned all I needed to know in Texas History.
