What do Barack Obama and Keith Olbermann have in common? Just about everything

H/t to DRT. Tim Russert, Christopher Hitchens and Keith Olbermann have all been placed on FemiSex Deathwatch (in the spirit of one Slate.com started for Hillary) and guess what: yes, Tim is gone, Christopher is gone, Keith is gone once from MSNBC and now he's imploding with his bud Al Gore at Current TV. NYTimes writer David Carr, when not at ballgames with Olberfuck, is writing about Olbermann's descent into madness, saying the dude has himself Barricaded Inside His Own Show, refusing to come out and play.

But it is not what liberal dude nation Carr writes but this brilliant wisdom from Mr Reasonable in Columbus, OH who posted this comment under the story:

This story is symptomatic of what has happened to the Democrat party. Once upon a time, JFK urged to 'ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country', but now the Democrat mantra (as demonstrated by Olbermann and the whole OWS crowd) seems to be 'Give me what I want, if you don't, I will throw a hissy fit and demand that stuff be taken from others and given to me.'

Could this be the reason that the number of people who identify themselves as Democrats has fallen by 21% since Obama was inaugurated?

And then this comment by JohnBoy in Tampa Florida who writes:

KO embodies so many undesirable traits it is hard to know where to start: self-righteous, bombastic, nasty, and unstable.

He embodies an era where character doesn't matter - only a little bit of talent (he is a gifted wordsmith) and a LOT of attitude!

I don't know what is more endearing about this story - KO being KO or another story about the incompetence of Al Gore. An NFL owner wouldn't give Randy Moss a piece of the team in the vain hope that a tiger would change his stripes.

Wisdom from the masses. But what struck me about both comments is their link to Obama and his Gimme Government Regime and the fact that a man who is good with words and a telepromter is mistaken for a man who will do right by our country. Gimme is the flavor of the Dems today and both Mr. Reasonable and JohnBoy highlight that this is not an Olbermann issue but one afflicting the entire Democrat Party of the 2000s.

And Obama's insistence on his way or the highway (with health care to recess appointments to executive orders to extending the Hyde Amendment to all women, just about everything) is Olbermann in narcissistic, egomaniacal nature.
