Carol Platt Liebau: An Inapt Comparison

An Inapt Comparison

New York Magazine is trying to tout Keith Olbermann as "the left's Limbaugh."

Reading the comparison, it's hard not to stifle a laugh -- it's a bit like calling Nancy Pelosi "the left's Margaret Thatcher." After all, Rush Limbaugh's strength has been trafficking in truth served up as entertainment. There are legions of Limbaugh-haters who would love nothing more than to expose his "lies," but they're rarely given anything to work with.

Keith Olbermann routinely flirts with moonbattery (see here and here and here, for example), and relies on such pathetic little tricks as naming various Americans "the worst person in the world" (yep, that's right, worse than Kim Jong Il, Osama bin Laden and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad).

Rush is a happy warrior; Olbermann is a hate-filled loon. If he's the best answer the left has to Limbaugh, we're sitting pretty!

Well the list of lies are long and wide. Starts with drug abuse and degenerates quickly to making fun of those chronically ill, with terminal illnesses. In this regard, recent Limbaugh thuggery and lies have victimized Micheal J. Fox and Elizabeth Edwards.

Just the other day, stem cell research that is blocked by Bush & Co have shown promise in curring type 1 diabetes. This research is being done in Brazil. Also stem cell research is showing it can repair heart disease and grow valve replacements. The leading cause of premature deaths in the US. This research is being done in UK.

Yes, thanks to Bush we are losing our lead in medicine, as well as, in the auto and energy industries.

Heck of a President and Limbaugh is a bushie fan.

We ARE sitting pretty, Carol. The left's success in discouraging Americans from the current fight will be short lived. Americans are a sensible people. They will not suffer these leftist fools long.

The left has been trying to find their "Limgaugh" for many years now. I would compare KO to a Saturday Night Live Weekend Update anchor if it wasn't so denigrating to the SNL comedian. Olberman is such a chucklehead. I am perplexed and befuddled that his network finds him to be anything better than an example of stupidity.
