Nothing to see here. Move along.

Damn Dana Milbank! So who the hell does he think he is to give an interview to Politico? Who cares about him anyway? I made the official statement about this entire affair le Milbank on my official website of record, Daily Kos. What more could there possibly be to say but this:

This saved your crack Countdown staff an increasingly difficult decision. For nearly a week we'd been waiting for him to offer a correction
or an explanation for his column from last week in which he apparently reported
an Obama quote without a full context turned the meaning of the quote
inside-out.We had decided not to have Dana on this news-hour again until this was cleared up, and, sadly after some very happy years, he's apparently chosen to make that cloud permanent


I fired him because he lied about Obama dammit! That is the entire story. The true story. So what does the little bastard do? Contradict me!What if those damn Kossacks find out I lied to them? The nerve of Milbank--telling the Politico I really got pissed with him after he said something nice about a Republican. Hey everybody knows the ground rules of my show. No nice talk about the GOP-it makes the Kos crowd very unhappy when anyone does that. And the Kossacks have to love me. Because I need love and approval. Lots of love and approval. But what if a few of them believe him? What then? What about me?

So what if I used his defection to CNN to play up to the Kossacks and claim he was fired when he was history a month or more ago? It is about me after all and what is best for me, not anyone else, not the fans, not Milbank and damn sure not that Bill-O guy on Fox. Hate him. (Note to self: Add Milbank to enemies list-pronto. And that bastard at Politico for believing him and printing the truth.) The only truth that matters after all is my version of it.

"This saved your Countdown staff on crack from actually investigating what was said at an event that was not recorded, to verify if what Dana said was correct or not."

Dana claims now that he reported Obama's statements correctly, and that those other comments were never uttered, meaning that he had not taken those statements out of context. That was the context Obama gave it in, and exactly what he meant to say.

It would have been interesting to hear this debated live between KO and DM, but Keith threw that chance away, so as not to divulge any disparaging information about Obama.

It's not just not divulging any disparaging remarks about Obama. It's that Keith can't handle face to face confrontations. This is why he never has any opposing points of view on his show.
Sorry, Keith, but you're a coward when it comes to arguing with a guy.
Now, he'll do it with a woman in a minute because, well, it's that ego thing. He thinks he's superior to them.
