MSNBC's Cenk Uygur: Pathetic or the real deal?
It's been a week now since the Canning of Keith Olbermann. Many of the DUmmies are still mired in deep Keef Grief, but some have moved on.
MSNBC has moved on. They have installed a new guy to fill the hole, someone named . . . Cenk Uygur?? Yes, that's right, Cenk Uygur. So now their nightly line-up looks like this:
The As-Yet-Unnamed Time Slot, with Cenk "Eye Chart" Uygur
Harebrained, with Chris "Crazyleg" Matthews
The Lost World, with Lawrence "Lawrence of Insania" O'Donnell
The Rachel Mancow Show, with Rachel "Madcow" Mancow
The Ed Show, with Ed "Sergeant" Schultz
A regular Murderers' Row, eh? (Oops, sorry, violent metaphor there.) The DUmmies probably view Rachel as the top man there now.
So who is this Cenk Uygur, you ask? And well you may. For up to this point, Mr. Whatzisname has been an obscure left-wing blogger, hosting some unwatched web show called "The Young Turks." Mr. Mxyzptlk, you see, is of Turkish ancestry, and he used to be young. Now, though, he's simply the 40-Year-Old Turkey. But apparently he fits the MSNBC "Loon Forward" profile: a foul-mouthed, hate-filled, Looney Leftie.
Well, over in DUmmieland, putting this guy on the air has set off a Cenk Uygur Flame War, which is almost as much FUn as a Cenk Uygur Spelling Bee. The house is divided. MSNBC's Cenk Uygur: Pathetic or the real deal? That is the question.
And we get different answers in DUeling DU threads. "Pathetic" leads the way in this THREAD, "Cenk Uygur? That's the best MSNBC could find? He is pathetic." However, another DUmmie counters by saying Cenk is "the real deal" in this THREAD, "Cenk Uygur is the best the MSNBC could find! He is the real deal." It's FUnnie to see them get so worked up over someone no one is going to watch, except half of them!
So let us now don our asbestos overcoats and venture into Democratic Uygurground, in Flame-War Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson--wondering if Cenk will stay on the air long enough for his fifteen viewers to learn how to spell his name, much less pronounce it--is in the [brackets]:
Cenk Uygur? That's the best MSNBC could find? He is pathetic.
[I'll take that as a thumbs down on the Young Jerk.]
Can't believe he took over the 'hole' KO left.
[benburch would be GLAD to fill KO's hole. "Lean Forward"--that's ben's motto too!]
I don't care for Cenk
[Two "no's" on Cenk Uruguay.]
What's not to like? I'd be willing to bet the guy will have a more "common-man" appeal too, much like Ed.
[Cenk will have a more "commun-ist" appeal, much like Ed.]
they really need to run a rabid liberal lady in there. (besides Rachel)
[Rachel would like a rabid liberal lady beside her.]
Cenk is the only talk show host that interviewed DU's very own Skinner!!!
[That should tell you something.]
he is always looking to complain about something and not simply telling us the news (and usually raising his annoying voice at the same time).
[PERFECT for MSNBC!]
I find him boring.
[Another vote against the Unnngh Turk.]
The guy is literally unwatchable. He routinely bellows the sort of wild-eyed, half-baked hyperbole we all criticize. . . .
["No" on Turkish Daffy.]
But he can spell!
[With a name like Cenk Ugygyygrrr, you have to!]
You must not have been watching the same Cenk. . . .
[There are two of them?]
I don't mind him. I don't watch that much, but he doesn't bother me. Could be worse.
[A ringing endorsement for Cenk Yogurt!]
If I would watch MSNBC I would watch Cenk. But I won't watch because they fired Keith.
[NOT ONE D*MN CENK!]
I love him, I think he's TERRIFIC!
[Signed, Cenk Uygur]
Whatever dude, Cenk is awesome
The type of show they have him doing isn't his strong suit. He doesn't enunciate as well. . . .
[YOU try saying Cenk Ungnguyyyrrrrr!]
I hereby declare you the loser of the first annual Cenk Uygur flame war.
[I have a feeling this may be the LAST annual Cenk Uygur flame war.]
there has been zero marketing (Cenk isn't even listed in the MSNBC primetime commercials) and the show doesn't even have an official name, his own customized team and set, etc.
[True, but he costs a lot less than Keefie. Follow the capitalism: Keef was pulling down 7 mil; they're probably paying El Cinko a paltry 7 thou.]
Cenk Uygur is the best the MSNBC could find! He is the real deal.
[A big thumbs UP for Cinko de Mao!]
He has no personality. He's boring.
[And a quick "no" on the Cankersore.]
He may be boring but he is not a drone.
[A left-winged compliment, I guess.]
Not afraid of sh*t he!
[Yoda checks in.]
Cenk just states the obvious and isn't professional. His read is crap, he's an arrogant ego-maniac.
[Picky, picky, picky. . . .]
I LOVE CENK!!!!!
I had him on in the kitchen while making supper... I LIKE!
[YES for the Kitchen Cenk!]
I hereby declare you the winner of the first annual Cenk Uygur flame war.
