Olbermann’s Ridiculous Suspension Ends Tuesday

MSNBC has announced it will reinstate Countdown host Keith Olbermann this week. In a bullshit move, the host was suspended on Friday for donating a piddly $7,200 to Democratic candidates in the recent election campaign — the same election where brain-damaged Americans handed control of Congress to the U.S. business lobby’s preferred political party, which consistently runs up massive deficits every time it gets power.

The Republicans, who received favourable news coverage as well as massive fund-raising support and direct donations from more than two dozen Fox News personalities as well as from the network’s parent company, have announced they will fight to repeal the Democrats’ health care reform, by the way. Well done, Republican voters, you stupid jerks. Well done.

  1. It’s the great American fantasy: If you let the government provide “it” for you, you will not develop the work ethic needed to get “it” for yourself. The ‘brain damaged’ part coming when people who believe this mantra refuse to recognize that “it” is no longer there, “it” no longer exists…”it” was transferred off-shore long ago to low-wage jurisdictions by the same American corps and shareholders who continue to sell this mantra.

    “It”, of course, being opportunity, the ‘American Dream’. Corporate America’s enablers being sad, middle-aged white guys ‘n gals (the ones alienated from ’60s liberation) who “just want things back to how they were before (post-’60s, wholesome, Nixonian 1970s).”

    They seem to think it all resides in rolling back progressive social legislation, while jobs, capital, and American livelihoods can remain overseas. It’s all a desperate last-ditch, blind lunge at the past, a desolate state of denial. And we have to live with it.

    By the way, loving the ‘liberal media’.
