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.

Yes, I read that. Very good.
You know, if she wasn't a lady I'd state that I'd like to see Ann arm wrestle Keith O. (I bet he'd have a fistful of sand in his other hand ready to throw in Ann's eyes LOL)

And that picture! It's beautiful, truly beautiful. She has been looking more resplendent than usual lately.

Counting Down With Keith Olbermann '79

"..Keith Olbermann '79 is currently the host of Countdown With Keith Olbermann, which airs on weekdays at 8:00 p.m. on MSNBC. Olbermann was a communications arts major (as it was called at the time) in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.."

CALS Academic Programs

The College of Arts & Sciences

The PDF file below shows that the Arts & Sciences require SAT or ACT tests but a test is only recommended at Agriculture and Life Sciences indicating the Arts and Science school is the harder one to get into. This is the current requirement. I don't know for the 1970s when Olbermann was there but there is no reason to think it would be different then.

I find conflicting statements here.

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

From Wiki:

"Cornell University's architecture department is one of the world's most highly regarded and prestigious schools of architecture and is the only department in the Ivy League to offer the Bachelors of Architecture

It seems that he may have went to an Ivy League school. It depends upon which school he went to.

The college that Olbermann went to is a statutory college or contract college.

The statutory college is operated by the university on behalf of the state and receives government funding.

In other words, the K-boy went to a gubmint school.

Obermann is showing the typical pack mentality of the MSM. These have been reduced to dogs. Their dog bowls are getting emptier and emptier as more people unplug from their senseless pap. So what are they doing? Instead of smelling the stink coming from the Obama Administration, they are thinking red meat of Rush Limbaugh will make an easy treat. When are these moron going to get it? This controversy is over. It is done. They ignore that there is widespread agreement that Obama’s solution to the economy is the wrong one. They ignore that Rush is correct. The Obama solution needs to be defeated. And because they continue to make the same mistake as lackeys to the Left, they will fail too.

They have lost this argument, and more will see the likes of Obermann as a little yipper thinking his yap is hot stuff. The American people will see that they are all little flea-ridden muts who will piss on our time honored traditions of the free market, the family, freedom and liberty. They are failing us and as they do they will fail themselves. When they act like dogs, they will live like dogs and they will be treated like dogs.

It's about time someone started looking at some of these media grubs in the light of day. They love to dig up dirt on conservatives and then crawl back under the rock they came from. We need to start exposing their own secrets and lies.

This reminds me of a Black guy in my Medical School Class. He told everyone he went to Harvard. We were all impressed until we found out he went to a special summer program for minority students to prep them for Medical School. He made of fool of himself.

Continuing the vivisection of Keith Olberman:

“Finally, you can stop pretending that you went to the hard-to-get-into Cornell.

“Now you won’t have to quickly change the subject whenever people idly remark that they didn’t know it was possible to major in “communications” at an Ivy League school.”

“No longer will you have to aggressively bring up Cornell when it has nothing to do with the conversation.”

“Relax, Keith. Now you can let people like you for you. “

Whew! I’m glad I don’t have Ann Coulter after me!

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!

In the movie, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, there's a similar error in the script. Pompey is taking classes from Ransom Stoddard (Stewart's character.)

I'm quoting from memory, so may be slightly off:

Pompey: "It was writ by Mr. Thomas Jefferson of Virginia."
Stoddard: "Written, Pompey."
Pompey: "And it was called the Declaration of Independence."
Stoddard: "The Constitution."
Pompey: "And it goes like this: We hold these truths to be self-evident..."

It's one of those little errors in a movie that shows up on movie trivia sites sometimes. When I heard Rush make the error, the first thing I thought of was the movie.

The way to model Wikipedia is as just another part of the MSM. Like the rest of the MSM, it is pretty reliable provided there are no political implications to the topic under discussion. Otherwise, you have to expect the usual socialist tendentiousness.

Amen, go Ann! Do we get the hint? What other skeletons are in the press’ closet? Those who know more than we who merely watch and those who vie for ‘smartest person on the air’ are not. You can damn be sure people like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh have their lives combed through on a regular basis (ala let’s send a gazillion reporters to Alaska and dig dirt on Palin). We can stop playing in the backfield of ‘what they did yesterday’ and push something forward by investigating the investigators - just a thought.

Sorry, Miss Coulter, but your snobbery built on ignorance is showing. :-(

In fact, the "Real Cornell" would be the land-grant colleges. And I say this despite my attendance of one of the statutory ones.
