I did not have sexual relations with that dolphin

I have no one to blame but myself. See, I was bored and there was nothing on TV, so as I was flipping through the channels, I saw Keith Olbermann’s Countdown show was on Al Gore’s network. I’ll admit I was curious. I thought, what the hell, I’ll give it a shot.

Olbermann spent the better part of the hour ripping President Obama mercilessly over what he said, and didn’t say, at his press conference earlier that day.

On Libya: He sarcastically muttered, no, we’re not at war, we’re just dropping care packages that explode…

On dealing with Congress: First, he complained Obama was giving away too much in the negotiations, then he complained Obama was stupid to think the Republicans were going to come to any kind of agreement after the Sasha and Malia do their homework line.

On gay marriage: Obama wasn’t going to make news on that front today. If not now, when?!?

I guess Olbermann thinks stopping a madman from killing hundreds of thousands of his own people is a bad idea. I guess Olbermann thinks the President can just wave the Fourteenth Amendment in front of the GOP and Darrell Issa won’t begin impeachment proceedings immediately. I guess Olbermann thinks the issue of gay marriage should trump discussion of how to avoid financial Armageddon. Apparently, gays don’t need jobs…

The State of New York did a wonderful thing passing gay marriage legislation last Friday. But do you really want the main story over the next week to be about Santorum’s man-on-dog sexual fantasy, or Bill O’Reilly’s slippery-slope argument that people will start marrying dolphins?

Here’s hoping Olbermann’s tenure at Current TV is very, very brief…

  1. Couldn’t agree more about some of Olbermann’s comments. It amazes me sometimes that many of Obama’s fiercest critics are liberals like Olbermann, who, perhaps, would be much happier if, say, Mitt Romney were holding White House press conferences?

    That’s not to say the President doesn’t deserve some whacks for some of his mistakes, but geeze, with all the excrement he has had to shovel since taking office, he has done some pretty remarkable things. I fear, though, that he will allow Republicans, through this debt ceiling negotiation, to basically dry up completely the economic recovery through short-term budget cutting.
