As a new feature here at Shayneblog, we've decided to borrow a page from the Left's chieftain (Countdown with Keith Olbermann) and use it for our own right-wing extremist purposes. So, starting today, I will post a weekly feature honoring my choice for the "Worst Person in the World." However, in deference to the standard-bearer (and the initial recipient), I will bestow the honor as "The Keith Olbermann Award: Given to the weekly worst person in America."
There is no better recipient this week than Mr. Olbermann himself. Although, it was a close call. Other nominees were Chris "Tingles" Matthews, for claiming the President Bush announced plans for mass killings in following the attacks on 9/11, Janet Napolitano - The U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security - for her unabashedly biased and ridiculous report about the dangers of "right-wing extremists (the US military? You have got to be kidding me!) and also President Obama for his appointment of former L.A. Times correspondent Rosa Brooks - a woman so unhinged she considers Bush and Chaney to be "psychotics who need treatment."
But Olbermann gets the nod this week for the way he treated perhaps the biggest story of the week - the nationwide protests against taxes, otherwise known as "tea parties." Olby and Matthews spent the entire day on Wednesday mocking anyone who considered rising taxes, huge deficits and left-wing socialist tendencies to be an issue that is important to Americans. In addition, he took great pleasure in calling these events "tea-bagging", which is a euphemism for oral sex.
You stay classy, Keith! And congratulations on being named Shayneblog's first winner of the Olbermann Award!
MSNBC and CNN have proven time and again why they are trailing FOXNews (by a wide margin). Aside from their amateurism and their petty jealousy, they have the audacity to think they are mainstream, while FOXNews is "right-wing propaganda." Mainstream? In what universe, Keith?
Speaking of CNN, did anyone catch Susan Roesgen's reporting this week? Two ridiculous comments she made this week made her a nominee as well. First, her comment as she was reporting the tea-party, saying "It's anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox."
Oh Pul-eeeze! The world does not revolve around CNN. No one really cares, Susan. Plus, since when are protests "anti-Government? And if they are, where as she when thousands (usually, the same thousands every time) were protesting President Bush and calling him "Hitler?"
Then we have her latest rant, stating that calling Bush "Hitler" was okay, but calling Obama a fascist is "offensive."
The hypocrisy of the media (and the Left in general) is mind-numbing. As long as the unholy trinity of Obama-Pelosi-MSM is in charge, it is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better.
