I Am a Suitcase of Rocks, I Am an Island

It's apparently an old-fashioned bitch-slap fest over at MSNBC, as Keith Olbermann recently sent an email to a viewer noting that colleague Rita Cosby is "dumber than a suitcase of rocks."

We suspect that Keith is underestimating a suitcase full of rocks. I think even rocks would know when it's time to retire the Natalee Holloway story.














As a mesmerized TV audience watched on helplessly, Rita Cosby transformed herself into Sally Struthers ....

Olberman's show is the only decent thing on MSNBC.

Says alot about MSNBC's ratings when one of its only stars has time and interest in responding to an email from a viewer.

"Hey Keith, Joe emailed you.. you know him, viewer #7!"

Olberman sort of rubs me the wrong way, but I can't agree more about Rita C. She's bad news. Pun intended.

I just wonder what kind of hormones Rita is taking to get that husky East German Olympic athlete voice. But regardless of whether Olbermann sometimes gets it right, as in this dead-on zinger observation about Cosby's IQ, he is a smirking crytpto-loony paranoiac with a pouty little smear of a smile who needs to be bitch-slapped a time or two himself.

Now why would you say something like that Reddirt? Is it because you are an O'Reilly fan and you don't like seeing him consistently on "The Worst Person In The World" list? Or maybe it is because Keith ends his broadcast by telling the viewers how many days it has been since George Bush declared "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED".

Not an O'Reilly fan -- and you're betraying your own sensibilities by assuming that. No, it's not the anti-Bush stuff either. It's just Olbermann's general oily aura, and his childlike credulity for nearly wacky lefty leaning conspiracy theory that comes along. I find right-wing conspiracy theories wacky as well, for the record. They generally both meet at the far fringes in a sort of "paranoia fusion" -- as one New Yorker writer described it more than ten years ago. Thus, you now have leftist fringe elements (as well as right-wingers) trying to revisit the cauldron of theories around the OKC bombing.

Someone hang me up to dry because I feel like I have just been spun. I didn't know I had any sensibilities, I thought I was just offering up a bit of liberal red meat.
