Keith Olbermann proves that if you put TV stage makup on an A**hole, it is still an A**hole. On a day where even the political campaigns are not being political (no political appearances, no attack ads) this festering boil on the backside of TVs, uses 9/11 as chance to attack the Republican party. He claims that John McCain has hijacked 9/11 turning it into a political commodity (and trust me-he meant to use the word HIJACKED). He Place the entire blame of 9/11 on the criminal negligence of George Bush and Rudy Giuliani (as if Bill Clinton never existed). Then he goes on to say that the Republican party was wrong for remembering 9/11 during its convention.
I have a little word for you Keith Olbermann. Some AMERICANS still believe in something. Some of us still put our hands over our hearts when we see a flag, take off our hats and sing the Star Spangeled Banner when we hear it. You might see a tribute to 9/11 during the convention as “jingo-istic” but we see it as a way to love our country and our heros. You may bash John McCain for going to the flight 93 Crash site and laying a wreath, but that is because YOU are a cynical and foolish ex sportscaster. Today is a day to pay tribute to the heros of 9/11 and to show that we share their Patriotism and mourn their loss. You instead used it as an opportunity to show just how small and damaged your brain is.
If any of you want to read the putrid ramblings of this sick mind they follow below:
Olbermann: Republicans have hijacked 9/11An American tragedy made into a political commodity
This is supposed to be a day of remembrance. Remembrance of the attack, remembrance of the national unity which followed it. Most important of all, remembrance of the dead.But 9/11 has become a brand name. A Republican campaign slogan. Propaganda of the lowest form. 9/11 has become 9/11 with a trademark logo.9/11 (TM) has sustained a president who long ago should have been dismissed, or impeached. It has kept him and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office without — literally — any visible means of support.9/11 (TM) has made possible the greatest sleight-of-hand in our nation’s history.The political party in office at the time of the attacks, at the local, state and national levels, the party which uniformly ignored the warnings and the presidential administration already through twenty percent of its first term and no longer wet behind the ears, have not only thus far escaped any blame for the malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur, but that presidency and that party, have managed to make it seem as if the other political party would be solely and irredeemably responsible for any similar catastrophe in the future.Thus, Sen. McCain, were you able to accomplish a further inversion of reality at your party’s nominating convention last week.There was the former Mayor of the City of New York, the one who took no counter-terrorism measure in his seven years in office between the first attack on the World Trade Center, and the second attack.Nothing, except to insist, despite all advice and warning, that his Emergency Command Center be moved directly into the World Trade Center.Yet there was this man, Sir, Rudolph Giuliani, quite succinctly dismissed as “A Noun, a Verb, and 9/11,” and repudiated even by Republican voters, transformed into the keynote speaker, Sen. McCain at your convention.And his childish, squealing, braying, Tourette’s-like repetition of 9/11 (TM), was greeted not as conclusive evidence that he is consumed by massive guilt – hard-earned guilt, in fact but rather as some kind of political tour-de-force, an endorsement of your Vice Presidential nominee, a rookie governor , a facile and slick con artist.The blind endorsing the bland, to a chorus of 9/11 (TM), 9/11 (TM), 9/11 (TM.)Your ringing mindless cheer of “We’ve Kept You Safe Since Then.”While nobody asks “doesn’t then count?”All of this, sadistically disrespecting the dead of New York, and Washington, and Shanksville. Endorsed, Sen. McCain. Exploited, Sen. McCain. Trademarked, Sen. McCain by you.And yet of course the exact moment in which Sen. McCain’s Republicans showed the nation exactly how far they have fallen from the Better Angels of Mr. Lincoln’s Nature, came the next night.The television networks were told that the Convention would pause, early in the evening, when children could still be watching, for a 9/11 Tribute, and they were encouraged to broadcast it.What we got was not a tribute to the dead of 9/11, nor even a tribute to the responders, or the singularity of purpose we all felt. The Republicans gave us sociological pornography, a virtual snuff film.
