    Olbermann: FNC & Conservative Side ‘Close to Playing With Its Own Poop,’ ‘Better Off’ If They ‘Didn’t Live in This Country’

    On Thursday’s Countdown show on MSNBC, after guest Howard Fineman of the Huffington Post predicted that Republican Congressmen would be reluctant to extend unemployment benefits, host Keith Olbermann asserted that, referring to congressional Republicans, "They don't live in this world. They don't live in this country. And I think we'd be better off if they didn't live in this country."

    Later, during the show’s "Worst Person" segment, Olbermann attacked FNC’s Roger Ailes for the second consecutive night - this time for his recent attack on NPR and Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart. Olbermann addressed Stewart directly, suggesting that the Daily Show host was wrong to lump MSNBC in with his criticism of FNC, and also suggesting that the side representing FNC and conservatives is "close to playing with its poop." Olbermann: "Thanks to Mr. Ailes for proving my point about false equivalence. And an aside to Mr. Stewart: Jon, I told you so. I mean, I might disagree with you, but I'd never think you were crazy or hateful. But Maher is right. One side sticks to the facts, and the other side is close to playing with its own poop."

    Below are transcripts of relevant portions of the Thursday, November 18, Countdown show on MSNBC:

    KEITH OLBERMANN: In the year and a half that Jeanne Reinman watched her savings and retirement drain away, the members of Congress now blocking her unemployment benefits saw their net worth increase dramatically. In 2008 through the end of 2009, their wealth growing by an average of more than 16 percent. This is according to a new study by the Center for Responsive Politics. While Americans lost their jobs, their homes and their savings, watching retirement and their kids' college educations fade from possibility, Congress watched its number of millionaires increase - 49 percent, nearly half of them, 261 out of 535, are now millionaires compared to one percent of America; 55 of them - more than 10 percent - are now worth more than $10 million. Eight of those are worth at least 100 million. The median wealth of every member of Congress last year was $911,150.

    Individual congressional wealth leaped more than $100,000 in just one year. It was just $785,000 in 2008. The richest of them all, Republican Congressman Darrell Issa of California with a net worth of 303 million. And, as I sit here wondering what kind of nation we want to live in, let's bring in MSNBC political analyst Howard Fineman, also senior political editor of the Huffington Post. Good evening, Howard.

    HOWARD FINEMAN, HUFFINGTON POST: Hi, Keith.

    OLBERMANN: We have a political party demanding that we borrow money to pay for tax cuts on household income above a quarter million while it is at the same time refusing to borrow a lot less money so that middle class Americans who can’t find work can keep their homes and just barely keep their heads above wate

    First of all, Blabberman doesn't think-------EVER!
    Secondly, Idiots with Blabberman's ideology are the ones who are SOOOO dissatisfied with this country that they want to "fundamentally change it." Who then should leave Qweef?

    And MSNBC was afraid that his financial contributions were proof of his bias, but this constitutes objective journalism? What color is the sky in their world?

    <remembers the bromide on liberal accusations>

    Someone in a bunny suit check Olbermann, and get a hazmat team to his office, he's a coprophiliac!

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Just so there is no confusion, "bathtub boy" is a reference to KO used by John Gibson and taken from the Olbermann Watch website and "heard by dozens" is an obvious reference to his less than stellar ratings.

    For the uninitiated, this may have appeared like I was referring to the OP.
    My sincere apologies for any confusion.

    WhattamessNBC needs to keep Olberweenie, Larry O, Dead head Ed, Christina Matthews and Rick rolled Maddow. The public needs to be reminded on a daily basis what "lunatic fringe media" truly means and lest they forget, all they have to do is review their objective, balanced coverage of the November 2010 elections.
    It was most telling that the (M)ostly (S)ophomoric (N)othing (B)ut (C)owards coverage team never had the balls (well Rachael probably does) to make their 3rd grade snarks to Cantor or Bachman, et al, while their target were on camera.

    Trvth To Power!!! Yeah, they showed em all right, just not to their faces.
