On Monday during "Countdown" TV host Keith Olbermann marveled at the presence of the Leaning Tower of Pisa in the now famous "celeb" ad released by John McCain's campaign. The problem: The object to which Olbermann refers was NOT the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but a structure located at the site of Obama's Berlin speech, called the "Victory Column".Listen you little creep, if I say it's the Leaning Tower of Pisa, it's the Leaning Tower of Pisa got it?
That's not all. Olbermann also claimed to have seen the Washington Monument in the ad in question, which is flat-out false. The Washington Monument is not in the ad either.Does this guy/gal actually think I have the kind of time to watch the damn ad?
Turns out he does.
Keith is both clueless and arrogant, hence my decision to make him center of this diary. Furthermore, as progressive media critic Bob Somerby observed today "He’d (Olbermann) had twelve hours to check his facts—but he still was repeating these world-class blunders..."Okay I'll own up to being arrogant. I am Keith Olbermann's Ego after all. But clueless? Me? No, I just don't have the kind of time to watch this stuff. I have staff for that buddy.
Okay so I screwed up. Big deal, Washington Monument, Leaning Tower of Pisa, whatever. They're both big and white, right? What's the big diff exactly? I was close enough. But this little creep continued on to insult me even further:
Spare us the BS next time, Keith, and start justifying the ginormous salary MSNBC pays you. Watching the video was all it took for you to have avoided making an ass of yourself. Too late now.
I have feelings. I hurt. I need love. I need so much love. Thankfully my Kossacks were there to defend me. 300 plus comments baby! I am the king! I am the King of All Media. (Yeah I know that's Howard Stern's title but does he has his own cable news network tv show? Does he run a damn cable news network like I do? That's what I thought). Where was I? Oh yes, The love. My Kossacks love me. And that's the way I Keith Olbermann's ego loves it.
