Olberman Pulls a Chuckie…

Keith Olberman, the washed up sports caster turned party-hack over at MSNBC that no one watches is pulling a Chuckie and ditching his allies and friends and trying to remake himself to get ratings, I guess he’s taking a page out of the washed up guitarist turned failed blogger page…

Its an open thread as well:

From the Politico:

Keith Olbermann announced Wednesday night that he will cease blogging on the liberal Daily Kos over a comment directed at the MSNBC host’s coverage.

Olbermann and some of his MSNBC colleagues surprised their left-leaning fans on Tuesday with eviscerating critiques of President Barack Obama’s Oval Office address on the oil spill spewing off the Gulf Coast.

One commenter on the Daily Kos, where Olbermann has maintained a diary over the years, speculated that the pattern of hosts generally sympathetic to the president bashing the administration was too consistent to be a coincidence.

“Can’t verify, of course,” the commenter began, “but a friend in the news biz tells me he got a damaging e-mail from one of his pals at NBC. Something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned because ‘beating up on the president has been good for ratings.’ I haven’t checked, but I’m hearing that Olbermann slammed the speech on Twitter before it even started.”

“For years, from the Katrina days onward, whenever I stuck my neck out, I usually visited here as the clichéd guy in the desert stopping by the oasis,” he wrote. “I never got universal support, and never expected it, nor wanted it (who wants an automatic ‘Yes’ machine?). But I used to read a lot about how people here would ‘always have my back,’ and trust me this was of palpable value as I fought opponents external and internal who try to knock me and Rachel off the air, all the time, in ways you can imagine and others you can’t.”

Olbermann went on to say that he understood if some of his viewers were frustrated to see him criticizing the president but that he would not stand for being accused of doing so just to boost ratings.

“To accuse me, after five years of risking what I have to present the truth as I see it, of staging something for effect, is deeply offensive to me and is an indication of what has happened here,” the liberal host wrote. “You want cheerleaders? Hire the Buffalo Jills. You want diaries with conspiracy theories, go nuts. If you want this site the way it was even a year ago, let me know and I’ll be back.”


So, is this Keith pulling a Chuckie and playing the “why the Left (in this case) left me” dance?
It is interesting to watch, the Left is eating their own while they are the height of Progressive Power, the control the House, Senate, and the Executive.

    An Apology To Be Truly Sorry About

    Rep. Joe Barton says what everyone knows is true and his own party threatens to kick him out of his committee seat. We expected cynical political opportunism from Democrats, but not from Republican leaders.

    Where are we as a society when the truth is treated as a something that can’t be uttered in public?

    Barton, the Texas Republican, apologized to BP CEO Tony Hayward, now relieved of his duties, during Thursday’s House Energy and Commerce Committee hearing for what he characterized as a “shakedown” by the White House in forcing the company to create a $20 billion victims’ compensation fund.

    He also declared that he was “ashamed” of the White House’s tactics, and called it “a tragedy of the first proportion that a private corporation can be subjected to what I would characterize as a shakedown.”

    “I do not want to live in a country where any time a citizen or a corporation does something that is legitimately wrong is subject to some sort of political pressure that is — again, in my words, amounts to a shakedown,” he said.

    Obama’s Answer To Spill Comes Up Short

    Barack Obama doesn’t do the mundane. He was sent to us to do larger things. You could see that plainly in his Oval Office address on the Gulf oil spill.

    He could barely get himself through the pedestrian first half: a bit of BP-bashing, a bit of faux-Clintonian “I feel your pain,” a bit of recovery and economic mitigation accounting.

    It wasn’t until the end of the speech — the let-no-crisis-go-to-waste part that tried to leverage the Gulf Coast devastation to advance his cap-and-trade climate-change agenda — that Obama warmed to his task.

    Pedestrian is beneath Obama. Mr. Fix-It he is not. He is world-historical, the visionary, come to make the oceans recede and the planet heal.

    How? By creating a glorious, new, clean green economy.

    And how exactly to do that? From Washington, by presidential command and with tens of billions of dollars thrown around.

    With the liberal (and professorial) conceit that scientific breakthroughs can be legislated into existence, Obama proposes to give us a new industrial economy.

    Olberdork isn’t going to be allowed into the right pundit cool table. We don’t forget when you bash us, Olberdork. We have Levin, Rush and the fabulous Dr. K and David Horowitz -- we don’t need you. And you’re a mental midget in comparison to these guys. Actually you’re a mental midget compared to my cats, but since they have claws, I don’t want to risk offending them.

    Could it be you’re just a little worried that Comcast is going to come into MSNBC and clean house -- i.e., follow the Fox model and you’re trying to wean yourself away from the left.

    Ah, but this is my “other day”! We had a few nice days — not too hot, and low humidity — so I did a few outdoor chores, then sat out on the deck under a nice big umbrella and undulged in some whittling. Today it’s back to 90+ heat and humidity, so I’m doing indoor stuff with the a/c running.

    If I had been the one doing the reply to a comment I would have just added a something along the lines of “don’t you mean a pre-EU whorehouse?”

    Pelosi Throws Down — Won’t Consider Senate Doc Fix

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi struck a combative tone tonight, rejecting the Medicare “doc fix” passed hastily through the Senate Friday until Senate Republicans allow a vote on jobs measures that have passed through the House.

    “I see no reason to pass this inadequate bill until we see jobs legislation coming out of the Senate,” said Pelosi in a statement. “House Democrats are saying to Republicans in the Senate: Show us the jobs! (exclamation mark hers)”

    Her statement, along with Senate Republicans’ unwillingness to pass any legislation that adds to the debt, means that Medicare doctors can expect a 21 percent pay cut when claims that have been held for two weeks start to be processed by Medicare’s government administrator on Monday. Senate Democrats could not muster 60 votes twice this week when they considered bills more to Pelosi’s liking. They passed the last-minute doc fix bill to avert the 21 percent pay cut to Medicare doctors on Friday afternoon, even as the pay cut was scheduled to take effect.

    I know the bitch is stupid,but shit….is she insane as well?

    this from Ed at hot air

    In other words, Pelosi has handed the Senate Republicans the key to a filibuster not just in the Senate but also in the House, all to demand a massive expansion of the deficit on two separate fronts. The GOP couldn’t have possibly asked for a better political position even if they had begged Pelosi not to throw them into that briar patch. And if the “doctor fix” fails to get out of the House, it won’t be Republicans who get the blame, since Pelosi can call a vote on that any time she desires.
    Let’s hope that Republicans manage to keep this advantage for as long as it takes Pelosi to realize that she’s blown it.

    file this under “this is cool just because its cool”

    A wizard’s words finally set free
    Three men use some modern-day inspiration to retrieve 80-year-old Edison radio broadcasts from old technology.

    SCHENECTADY-- To hear an ailing 82-year-old Thomas Edison speak, with the great inventor’s voice, wheezy and high-pitched, growing husky and choked as he praised his good friend Henry Ford who stood alongside President Herbert Hoover on a stage on Oct. 21, 1929 is catching lightning in a bottle

    Earlier that night, the crowd heard Albert Einstein offering words of praise for Edison in German from Berlin.
    It is contained in one of the world’s oldest surviving radio broadcasts, recorded on an obscure machine that General Electric developed in 1922 and called a pallophotophone — which means “shaking light sound” in Greek.

    Listening to the elderly Edison lose his place, become confused and nearly weep over the depth of his admiration for Ford more than 80 years after he spoke those heartfelt words to a live audience has the power to cause a lump to rise in one’s throat.

    This aural treasure might have remained lost in history’s silent dustbin were it not for a curious archivist, a dogged engineer and a fixer.

    We get Canadian Thistle & the roots go to next week. I swear that they fight back.

    prolific ivy and the spraying of herbicides takes care of that.

    the ivy grows where there are no trees or pebbles. spraying rocks is easy.

    Yup, they have about half of them.
    It makes no sense to train Afghans to fly. This is not really an ally.

    I sure hope so. I’d LOVE to see the Dems lose control of both House & Senate. But we can’t just sit back and expect it to happen. We’ve got to get out there and make our voices heard!

    @ RIX:

    ivy loves shady areas and will grow quickly and spread out once they are established. it takes a few years but the results are very nice. i got mine at the local shop, nothing special, just typical ground ivy. planted three different types and they all are doing well.

    the back yard has a catalpa tree, two japanese cherries, an american cherry, two japanese maples, and an american maple. the left and right border are 8 ft privet hedge. inside the yard is a 16x16deck and a 12x12 deck just below it down the steps.

    there are two large rectangles of 8″ thick pads of river pebbles terraced away from the house that are shaded by the trees and the grape vines off of the smaller desk in the yard.

    Have a hissy fit? He’s been having a continuous fit of “Blame Bush” since he started campaigning. A change of pace would be to actually “Man Up” and admit he is in over his head, or the disaster he is creating is deliberate.

    . This is not really an ally.

    During the early 80′s when I was doing my Navy “A” and “B” schools for Avionics, one course was self-paced in a cubicle filled room. I had in my quad cube 3 Iraqi (I believe) officers taking the same course I was doing. They had all started before I did, and were on assignment 3 when I finished all 12 assignments in the course. I asked the sailor proctoring the room about the Iraqis and he told me Iraq was paying BIG bucks for the training.

    He also said the Iraqis were dumber than a box of rocks and had been told to “assist” them in passing the topic exams, otherwise they would probably still be there.
