Now that's fair and balanced media coverage for ya!

Now that America has a liberal President, it is apparently no longer acceptable for a private citizen to express disagreement with the White House in Keith Olbermann's world. On Thursday's Countdown show, MSNBC host Olbermann delivered his latest "Special Comment" rant, this time calling for former Vice President Cheney to "leave this country," and made a suggestion that Cheney, who recently criticized President Obama's plans for handling counterterrorism, should somehow be "made to desist" from such criticism: "You, Mr. Cheney, you terrified more Americans than did any terrorist in the last seven years, and now it is time for you to desist, or to be made to desist."

The Countdown host, who never showed any concern that his tirades against the Bush administration would "undermine" the war on terrorism, accused Cheney of "trying to sabotage" Obama's "efforts against terrorism," and made a number of vulgar implications in attacking Cheney -- including twice pronouncing the former Vice President's first name with emphasis as if to call him by a vulgar word; saying that he would tell Cheney to "shove it"; and asking which "orifice" Cheney was pulling numbers from about the recidivism rate of former Guantanamo detainees.

[This item, by the MRC's Brad Wilmouth was posted Sunday night on the MRC's blog, NewsBusters.org: newsbusters.org ]

As if the MSNBC host had a history of restraining himself when he disagreed with Cheney while the former Vice President was still in office, Olbermann teased Thursday's show: "When he was in office, we kind of had to take this from him. He is in office no longer, so we don't. He has caused far more terror in this country in the last seven years than any terrorist."

Keith Olbermann's a LIAR and a MORON. :mad:

Hey Kieth, why don't you go on Hannity, Levin, Beck, O'Reily Limbaugh, Ingraham shows? Wait! I know why, you're a scared little pansy that knows you cannot defend your pointless ranting when confronted with facts.

Olbermann you suck, everybody knows it, and your pathetic ratings prove it.:cool:

Hey, Queef. Bush isn't president anymore. Get over it. (I knew these jackholes were going to be hypocrites.)

"As if the MSNBC host had a history of restraining himself when he disagreed with Cheney while the former Vice President was still in office, Olbermann teased Thursday's show: "When he was in office, we kind of had to take this from him.""

That is stupid. It reminds me of this moronic Rolling Stone article (Which is I know par for the course for that magazine) in which one of their brain- dead political commentators said something like "When Clinton was president, everyone could make fun of him on TV and everywhere else. With Bush, we're afraid to make fun of him for fear he might have us arrested under the Patriot Act."
Never mind the fact that talk show hosts and others have been making fun of Bush all the time, and never got arrested and shipped to those ominous Wal- Mart detention centers or anything (Unless that brilliant evil genius Karl Rove had them arrested then replaced with evil robot clones :eek:).
It's so funny that the liberals are usually the ones who accuse US of being paranoid and ruled by fear!
