VIDEO: Keith Olbermann calls Glenn Beck an 'Uneducated, Imperceptive, Panicky Wack Job'
Examiner.com ^ | 9/3/09 | Liz Barrett

Posted on 09/05/2009 7:33:13 PM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta

Just in case you missed this on TV -- or all over the Internet -- here's the video of 'Countdown' host Keith Olbermann blasting his enemy of the week, Fox News conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck. The rant started with Olbermann saying:

"The danger of today's version of the mythical homespun aw-shucks-TV-totalitarian-Lonesome-Rhodes Glenn Beck is summed up by remarks today in which he claims that a revolution has begun in this country — a 'stealing of America in the guise of an election' — and his repeated insistence that the President is a Marxist.

The comfort of today's mythical homespun aw-shucks-TV-totalitarian-Lonesome-Rhodes Glenn Beck is that everyday he gives away the essential truth that he is an idiot."

Olbermann is paid $9 million a year by GE & NBC to attack conservatives every single night.

Watch the video. Conservatives need to see what NBC is putting on the air every night.

That will stop Beck dead in his tracks. Olbermann should ask BO for a job as a name calling Czar.

Keith Olbermann gets fewer viewers than local cable access, thus his constant jealousy at those who attract huge audiences. The guy’s entire show is based on his attacking and demonizing his political opponents, never about taking an affirmative stand on anything. We only know what Keith the Kook stands for by what he’s against. And his calling anyone a wack job would be like Rosie O’Donnell calling someone butch.

Better yet. GE stockholders need to be asking why they’re throwing money down that hole to begin with. Seems to me that they should expect GE to actually make money for them.

I know Glenn Beck is an entertaining kook at times, but I admire him greatly. Without him the Van Jones story would have no legs at all. Beck feels he has been called to do his part to inspire and help put America back on track. I pray for him and salute his patriotism and bravery. He does the jobs others in the media will not do.

“That will stop Beck dead in his tracks”

The louder the left screams, the more effective is the attack.

Beck stuck the knife into the czar issue, let’s twist it round and round.

Olbermann says he's got the best ratings on cable tv. I don't know where he gets his numbers from, but he believes it and says it almost every night nonetheless.

I think he excludes FoxNews programs. And doesn’t count anyone over thirty. And doesn’t consider viewers as legitimate unless they are on prescription meds.

He's the female half of the Olbermann/Maddow laugh fest on PMS-NBC.

But you're right.  There's no need to care.

Uneducated? Where did Keith Olbermann go to college.

Ah, I just googled it, and found a column by Ann Coulter:

http://www.anncoulter.com/cgi-local/article.cgi?article=300

Apparently, Olbermann went to a state agriculture college in Cornell—but claims to have gone to Cornell. Which is evidently a lie.

Apparently, Olbermann makes a living attacking conservatives for being “uneducated” while lying about his own ag school education.

ROTFLOL!! You hit the nail on the head... here's a quote from Olberlozer:

OLBERMANN: I hate to intrude with the facts but ours is the highest cable news program viewers 35 and younger and the highest rated cable not on Fixed News and since Fixed News has now migrated completely over to serving propaganda, tinfoil hatters, conspiracy theorists, paranoids and racists

From this: Olbermann Ratings Hallucinations

Olberman couldn’t handle an opposing view, not just because he’s not mature enough to deal with the thought that people might not agree with him but because he doesn’t have enough brainpower to light a pen light, much less to debate an opponent. I’ll give Mancow, Matthews and that Ed Schultz dope some credit for at least on rare occassions hosting Republicans. But Olberloser is way too mentally stunted to be able to debate.

Olbermann is an unfortunate survivor of a botched partial birth abortion. The doctors sucked out his brains and left that poor hulk of an orange faced body. HE’S ALIVE......but for how long on that little tv station MSNBC?

I've checked out Olbermann many times, and he usually names people like O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Glenn Beck as the worst person in the world every single night...

I doubt if any terrorist ever won Olbermann's nightly award.

Not that I watch Olberman much, but every time I do I have to restrain myself from punching an LD hole in my HDTV. I just can’t afford to do that.

On the other hand, Glenn Beck makes me feel very good. He gets the truth out with a vengeance. He is quite a contrast to Olberman’s lies and distortion.
