Ann Coulter: OLBERMANN'S PLASTIC IVY (PWNED!)

OLBERMANN'S PLASTIC IVY
by Ann Coulter
March 4, 2009

Fortunately, we have Keith Olbermann to point out that Rush Limbaugh did not accurately quote the preamble to the Constitution in his CPAC speech last weekend. I'm not sure what scam Olbermann imagined Rush was trying to put over on the American people by saying conservatives believed in the "preamble to the Constitution" and then quoting words from the Declaration of Independence -- but Olbermann put an end to that cruel deception! 

These small-time opportunities to show off by correcting someone else's teeny-tiny mistakes are the lifeblood of Olbermann's MSNBC show, "Countdown." Olbermann is no more capable of not correcting Rep. Charlie Rangel when he said "inferred," but meant "implied," than an obsessive compulsive could pass a sink without washing his hands. 

There is utterly no purpose to these lame "gotchas," except that Olbermann is so desperately insecure that he is willing to waste valuable airtime in order to convince other status-conscious idiots that he is, like, scary-smart. 

Olbermann relentlessly attacked low-level Bush administration employee Monica Goodling for not going to a name-dropping college, saying -- approximately 1 million times -- that she got her law degree "by sending 100 box tops to Religious Lunatic University." 

I would venture to say that the students at Goodling's law school at Regent University are far more impressive than those at the Cornell agriculture school -- the land-grant, non-Ivy League school Keith attended. 

I wouldn't mention it, except that Olbermann savages anyone who didn't go to an impressive college. As it happens, he didn't go to an impressive college, either. 

If you've ever watched any three nights of his show, you know that Olbermann went to Cornell. But he always forgets to mention that he went to the school that offers classes in milking and bovine management. 

Indeed, Keith is constantly lying about his nonexistent "Ivy League" education, boasting to Playboy magazine, for example: "My Ivy League education taught me how to cut corners, skim books and take an idea and write 15 pages on it, and also how to work all day at the Cornell radio station and never actually go to class." 

Except Keith didn't go to the Ivy League Cornell; he went to the Old MacDonald Cornell. 

The real Cornell, the School of Arts and Sciences (average SAT: 1,325; acceptance rate: 1 in 6 applicants), is the only Ivy League school at Cornell and the only one that grants a Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Keith went to an affiliated state college at Cornell, the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (average SAT: about that of pulling guards at the University of South Carolina; acceptance rate: 1 of every 1.01 applicants). 

Olbermann's incessant lying about having an "Ivy League education" when he went to the non-Ivy League ag school at Cornell would be like a graduate of the Yale locksmithing school boasting about being a "Yale man." 

Among the graduates of the Ivy League Cornell are Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Thomas Pynchon, Paul Wolfowitz, E.B. White, Sanford I. Weill, Floyd Abrams, Kurt Vonnegut, Douglas Ginsburg, Janet Reno, Henry Heimlich and Harold Bloom. 

Graduates of the ag school include David LeNeveu of the Anaheim Ducks, Mitch Carefoot of the Phoenix RoadRunners, Darren Eliot, former professional hockey player, and Joe Nieuwendyk, multiple Stanley Cup winner. 

One begins to understand why Harvard students threw a chicken on the ice during Cornell's famous rout of Harvard at a 1973 hockey game. 

If you actually want to pursue a career related to agriculture, there is no better school than the Cornell ag school. I have nothing but admiration for the farmers and aspiring veterinarians at the ag school. They didn't go there just to have "Cornell" on their resumes.

It may seem cruel to reveal the true college of someone who already wakes up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat worried that he's a fraud. But I believe that by pointing out that Olbermann actually is a fraud, I am liberating him.

You may not realize it now, Keith, but you will look back on this day and say, "That was the best thing that ever happened to me!"

That one sentence sums up Olbermann completely.

He is the perfect example of a stupid person's idea of a smart person.

Ann Coulter: OLBERMANN'S PLASTIC IVY (PWNED!)
From wikipedia:
Pwn (below: Various pronunciations) is a leetspeak slang term, derived from the verb "own", as meaning to appropriate or to conquer to gain ownership.

The term implies domination or humiliation of a rival, used primarily in the Internet gaming culture to taunt an opponent who has just been soundly defeated (e.g. "You just got pwned!").

LOL@Coulter for "that he is, like, scary-smart"

Sometimes Coulter's humor stretches and isn't funny, sometimes she drones on.

But this column is an example of why I never discount her. When she FOCUSES and applies her humor AND intellect to a subject and carefully researches and explains, she is like a sub commander firing off torpedoes until her target is listing...then she fires off some more.

Ann nails this dweeb right on the head! Man, she has a sharp wit about her...no wonder the left hates her so much. She holds the “mirror of reality” up to their faces and they have to see how truly ugly they are.

She slammed him pretty good.

I wonder “why bother(?)” because I for one have never once watched this fellow's Program. I certainly have heard of him and heard some excerpts, but I see no reason to give him more attention.

Still, it is always fun when Ann rants on her inferiors out loud.

Or, as the guy from the U.K. Telegraph ('I love to pick fights with liberals' [Ann Coulter]) once said:
...Coulter's approach is not so much take no prisoners as capture one's opponents, string them up with piano wire, machine-gun them until all movement has ceased and then fire a celebratory volley into the air...

LOL - I imagine a tremendous hissy fit befell KO after he read that.

Miss C did bring up a very salient phenomenon amongst the vast majority of liberals, and yes, some on the other end of the political/cultural spectrum. That is, "massive status anxiety". And it allows me to point out that our two greatest presidents, (and future one), not only did not fit this description, they eschewed the very idea.
Of course I refer to Thomas Jefferson, Ronald Reagan, (and Sarah Palin).

You would be hard pressed to find any author or columnist that can keep you titillated and excited and on the edge of your chair with every word they produce.

Her columns and books read quite well, if some of it "drones" to you because of the depth of her thoughts, just skip to the next exciting part.

It should show up soon what ever venue of hers you are reading.

Oh, and some how she seems to have overcome the negatives you cited.

All of her books are instant best sellers upon publication.

Oh, a somehow little known Coulter fact:

She does all of her own research and is very thorough and accurate.

She's grate, ain't she?

Cute column.

My son went to A&S. But when I visited him there and took classes myself, a few of these classes were given by the other schools. (I just take what I'm interested in, which isn't really what I'm commenting on here.) It always struck me as rather odd that the Ag kids could take whatever they wanted to within A&S, and they wound up with Cornell degrees too; and their parents paid a lot less money than I did.

I admit that I winced when I heard Rush make that mistake. I knew that he would not be excused for it the way, say, Obama would be. But at least he knows that there are 50 states and that you don’t recover an economy by racking up more debt.

Oh, and I went to Columbia. The real Columbia. All 4 years. Obama should have gotten there for the core curriculum. He might have actually learned something useful.

I don't care if she overcomes these negatives or if everyone in the world buys her books. I don't look to the best seller lists or other people to make up my mind for me--I read, I think, I make a judgment. If you couldn't determine that I was PRAISING her, just not like a zombie, I can't make it any clearer.

Just because I like someone doesn't mean they're perfect, or that I'm blind to their flaws. And popularity doesn't mean I follow them like a robot.

I'm sorry I missed some pings last week but Mrs. knewshound was hit by a drunk driver last week and is pretty banged up.  As a result, I have not been spending much time on FR or anywhere else for that matter.  I will be back in the saddle soon and back to pinging you more promptly.

On or off, FReepmail or ping me.

That's funny, I never saw that before now.

When I first saw Rachael Mad Dow on MSNBC, I commented that I thought she was Olberman in drag.

Olberman leans towards dykeness, and Maddow leans towards the same thing.

I think they are exactly the same gender, neither male or female.

I don’t know why AC even bothers to acknowledge the former ESPN sports reader much less dignify his presence by writing a column about him...between Olbermann & Chrissy Matthews they have about as much credibility as a screen door on a submarine. And if folks, including FReepers, would quit posting threads about “Dumb & Dumber”, NBC might just drop both of these clowns and replace them with another paid program...who would notice they were still on MSNBC if we didn’t see threads & articles written about them...who the heck watches these clowns except for the Lefties.

God I love to read some of her stuff and watch her go on the shows. She's like a blade of steel put in a hot fire and made stronger.

That's why libs just fold... they're never used to being called out, while conservatives have always faced the tough questions and crowds.

She is great on the morning show clips I see on Youtube.... just devastating.

I think she'd be a hoot to have a couple of cold ones and yak about current events.
