I finally got Olberman last night. It is all satire. He is playing a characteur of a liberal. He drove me nuts because I couldn't believe andybody could be that stupid, illogical, and blindly partisan with no core convictions other than winning political power for political power's sake. It's a bit. He is the Phil Hendrie of the cable news channel. I watched most of his show yesterday and once I realized it had to be a gag it was hilarious. He is so completely over the top. It has to be an act.
He spent 10 minutes railing about the lipstick and the pig. Then he brought some weasely geek from newsweek on as some sort of insightful expert.
The coup de grace was his ripping on McCain's secret plan to get Bin Laden. He said something that I have said about Obama, but made it through the absurd notion that McCain could announce in public his plans to get Bin Laden. Shhhh don't tell Bin Laden, but this is my plan. Remember McCain pushed the Bush administration for the surge. Obama said it was a dumb idea and now it worked better than anybody could have imagined. McCain was just a lucky bastard and his Bin Laden plans won't work unless they do and then it wouldn't be his fault anyways.
However, U.S. Senator Obama supposedly has all these wonderful ideas for health care, the economy, etc. and the Democrats control congress and he has never written any of them into a Bill. None of which have any strategic reason to be kept secret and what is he going to do with all of these great ideas if he is not elected? He shoud have been writing Bills and not speeches if he really cared about the country.
I laughed through the entire Olberman show. It's mocking liberals. He can't be for real. The Archie Bunker of the cable news talk. The superiority, the condescension, the sophisticate language, the emotional adjectives, the illogical conclusions, ... He's got it all down. Absolutely hillarious.
