All of a sudden, Senator Coburn (R-Oklahoma) is a liberal heart throb! At a recent town hall meeting in Oklahoma, Coburn told a room full of Oklahomans that they have been misled by Fox–and that Nancy Pelosi is a nice person, although she’s wrong on the merits…
Egads! On several occasions, Coburn had told his constituents the truth: They keep getting played by Fox. He told one woman that she had been played about the idea that she’d go to jail if she didn’t buy health insurance. He told the whole room that they had been played about what Pelosi is like as a person. Beaming like a pure-bred hack, KO [Keith Olbermann] played the audiotape…
As Olbermann of course understands full well, Coburn would say these same things about Olbermann himself and MSNBC–and he would be right. Let’s be candid: MSNBC does have “an agenda” now too. We liberals are constantly “being biased by [MSNBC] that somebody’s no good,” just as conservatives are being biased by Fox. Olbermann is a humongous hack; he has lost his soul in the past seven years. This has rarely been as clear as it was during last night’s segment.
Final point: Coburn did something very important on March 31. He stood before a room of citizens and told them they’re being misled. For years, we have screamed, howled, shouted and yelled, suggesting that liberals need to develop platforms from which we respectfully go before these voters and tell them this same darn thing. But none of those voters would ever listen to a word KO or [Rachel] Maddow said. Our own leaders have endlessly mocked, and ridiculed, and insulted the voters who sat in that room with Coburn. Those voters would never listen to us when we told them the truth about Fox. We have traded away our relevance, as our clowns and hacks push their own agendas–agendas which are closely tied to the corporation’s desire to make large profits.
It was one year ago next week that Maddow, and then Olbermann, spent an entire week directing dick jokes at the voters who sat in that room with Coburn. Last night, Olbermann pretended to be impressed when Coburn stated an obvious fact: “Just because somebody disagrees with you doesn’t mean they are not a good person.”
Olbermann and Maddow don’t really believe that. This explains how they could have staged that repulsive, week-long orgy last year, as their idiot boss looked on.
Olbermann is consummate hack–a millionaire lost soul, a vintage “poor immigrant.” This was on full display last night as he played his liberal viewers again–just as they do on Fox.
