Did Olbermann Get On-Air Talking Points From KOmmie KOs?
Fournier outsources AP anti-Obama attack
[Stand by for your on-air talking points, Keith.]
This time, it's Charles Babington.
[For daring to be mildly critical of our flawless Obamassiah.]
Barack Obama, whose campaign theme is "change we can believe in," promised Thursday to "spell out exactly what that change would mean."
But instead of dwelling on specifics, he laced the crowning speech of his long campaign with the type of rhetorical flourishes that Republicans mock and the attacks on John McCain that Democrats cheer. The country saw a candidate confident in his existing campaign formula: tie McCain tightly to President Bush, and remind voters why they are unhappy with the incumbent.
Of course, no candidate can outline every initiative in a 35-minute speech - especially one that also must inspire voters, acknowledge key friends, and toss in some autobiography for the newly-interested. And Obama did touch on nitty-gritty subjects, such as the capital gains tax and biofuel investments.
He said he would "find ways to safely harness nuclear power," a somewhat more receptive phrase than he typically uses for that subject.
But most of his address echoed and amplified the theme that dominated the four-day Democratic nominating convention here: George Bush.
[GASP! How dare that reporter not be completely adulatory!!!]
Update: Meanwhile, Olbermann says on MSNBC: "Charles Babington, find new work."
[Gee, what a surprise. Olbermann reading his laptop for KOmmie KOs talking points. And now to hear from the other KOmmies...]
I don't think that guy heard the speech I heard. Ridiculous analysis.
[Only reports totally in awe of the Obamassiah are acceptable.]
Fournier was probably on the phone dictating what he wanted him to say based on an advance copy of the speech.
[KOmmie KOs doesn't even have to get on the phone to dictate his talking points to Olbermann. He merely has to post the talking points in KOmmieland, secure in the knowledge that Olbermann will be monitoring them on his laptop while on the air.]
Keith Olbermann is reading this article right now aloud on MSNBC. Interesting.
[Gee, what a "coincidence."]
Olbermann talking about it. says it is the ONLY source that will be going out to ALL news sources. He doesn't have a clue who Babbington is, but Olbermann says he should get a new line of work.
[The first time Olbermann ever heard of Babington is when he read about him in KOmmieland.]
BHO just nuked Planet GOP from orbit. It has taken me nearly an hour to put any coherent thoughts together.
[Your first coherent thought should be where you can find a sale on Guy Fawkes costumes.]
Keith just took on Babington and the AP....
Keith is reading it right now. is in disbelief----bears no resemblance to the speech we just saw----said-- Charles Babington, find new work. Said this is going to newspapers across the country and is so basically dishonest.
[Keith is so good at reciting KOmmie talking points.]
Go KO! He seems baffled by the article. He said Babington needs to get a new job!
[If Olbermann chickens out of going to the Republican convention, he might be needing to get a new job.]
Six years ago...4 years ago...I was angry and ready to fight...in 2002...I was crushed worried and feeling that the Democrats had abandoned America and the Republicans were going to rule forever...I want Republicans to feel like that
[A Guy Fawkes costume is in the mail to you.]
OMG KO is reading it noww!!!!
[OMG KO is reading talking points noww!!!!]
Olbermann is reading this on the air right now!
[Hey, he surfs KOmmieland just like you do.]
Oh God it's so wonderful to finally have somebody on television to push back against crap like this.
[Keith knows where to go to get his talking points while on the air.]
I think KO is reading Kos on his laptop as we speak!
[A KOmmie finally does speak TRUTH to power!]
