TBogg is the Boyfriend Keith Olbermann Deserves?

tbogg

I hate to break it to you, TBogg, but KO is spoken for.

The Firedoglaker is at it again, attacking yours truly in a fit of blind partisan snrage (that’s “snark” and rage”), and once again getting his facts wrong.

The provocation this time was the fact that I pointed out Keith Olbermann’s fingerbang salute to Carrie Prejean. I actually took it pretty easy on KO, of whom I am a big fan. Unfortunately, some liberals require blind idolatry, even when it runs counter to actual liberalism.

I went on to critique the left’s treatment of Prejean, another big no-no in TBogg-land.

First, though, he references the last story he got wrong about me:

When we last saw  Conservative Pet Liberal Tommy Christopher he was getting blog-killed by Big Bunny because he had the blogdacity*  to go “shame shame” over Guy Cimbalo’s hatefuck article/post thingy. As it turned out, pretty much anyone who was familiar with Cimbalao’s article shared Tommy’s opinion, but the timing of AOL’s de-Tommyfying was enough to throw the wingnuts into a frenzy.

Well, they’re always in a frenzy, but it was kismet that day because the Mexicans, Muslims, and Negroes  were  behaving themselves. At least for for a few hours.

Now we see that Tommy has washed up on the shores of the  Mediaite (I don’t know how to pronounce it either) blog which is kinda of like the crackbaby lovechild of Politico and Tiger Beat (”Who’s Hot Who’s Not!” “Win a Dream Date with Dreamylicious Jake Tapper!” etc.).

The “wingnuts” in a frenzy? Right, like The Huffington Post, or Howard Kurtz? He also displays the same class that led him to make fun of special needs children last time, tossing his barbs at crack babies here. Real nice.

He also forgot to check his facts again. I got fired from Politics Daily, asshole. I still work for AOL now, still write about politics for them. AOL offered me a new job the next day.

He also posits that I only defend young, hot, conservative women. You know, like Kevin Jennings or Van Jones. Boing!

True, I was also fortunate enough to land a great gig with Mediaite that permits me to get out of my jammies and into the real world once in a while.

Factual lapses aside, he also goes on to miss the entire point of my post. By attacking Prejean’s tits and masturbatory habits, the left has amplified her importance well beyond what it should be, and made themselves look ugly in the process. Keith Olbermann’s (thankfully non-glistening) fingers may be worth a chuckle to some, but at what price? What average American is going to watch that and say “My, that Keith Olbermann is a clever fellow. Let me probe his views on marriage?”

TBogg says “As to his point that she has been amplified, her book sales (#846) at Amazon tell another story.” I say the problem was never that she was selling books.

Finally, before TBogg tries to accuse someone of being a “Conservative pet liberal,” maybe he should think about elevating his own editorial standards to at least equal Hannity’s. At least he admits he’s “mistaken” when somebody busts him.

  1. Not that I think of myself as a Liberal, but I do have a certain distaste of Prejean…and I do think that it is hyporcritical that she portrays herself as someone with “conservative values”, she whines all day long about being done wrong. This is to only keep herself in the media. She is a media “whore”, lacking any thing that looks like a true conservative value, put her with Palin as far as Im concerned. The problem I have with her, is she is a lying snoot, of which I cannot stand.

    Oh, and hello to LadyD and TC!

    Keep on truckin’!

  2. Hi Tommy (and you too, Diana!):

    Gosh I miss you two, and Cube as well. We had some good times over at PM during the campaign.

    I’m gonna go with my Texas sister, Michelle, on this one. I don’t care for Prejean one bit. I have no problem with her doing a sex tape, as long as she was of consenting age. I do have a problem with her crying foul when it gets put out in public–give me a break, if you have the mentality to make the damn film (again, providing legal age limits) then suck it up baby!! (No pun intended) Geez, how long has the Internet been around now??

    And Palin? Oh please–don’t get me started on that white trash. I have been at her all weekend.

    Again hello to you both, hope you’re doing good and that you have a great Thanksgiving! (Get those bacon wrapped bananas going Tommy!) 😉
