Where Liberalism Is Alive and Well!

The “Professional Left” doth protest too much, methinks.

It was almost funny watching Keith Olbermann and Michael Moore take great offense to Robert Gibb’s punching back at some critics on the left. They both seemed to think Robert was speaking directly to them, now Keith might have a point, but Michael Moore seemed to want to step in front of the bullet. And their attempts to be funny were pretty lame in my opinion. Thanks to Crooks and Liars for a partial transcript…

“When Mr. Gibbs is worried about what people on the left are smoking, from my experience the person in the room who’s most paranoid about who’s smoking what is usually the person smoking the really heavy stuff,” noted Moore.

Wow, that is the best you can come up with Michael? Let’s break it down, “the person in the room who’s most paranoid about who’s smoking what”, why on earth would someone be “paranoid” about what someone else was smoking? They are paranoid about getting busted for what they are smoking, not what someone else is smoking. It makes no fucking sense. What Robert Gibbs said is exactly right, if you assholes can really compare President Obama to Bush, you are fucking smoking crack, not weed. If that offends someone because they did make the comparison, they deserve much more than a statement claiming they need to be drug tested, they deserve to be run out on a fucking rail. More idiocy from Michael Moore…

“From the beginning of this administration, what did people on our side of the fence say? You should take over these banks temporarily and fire all the thieves who stole our money. But instead what did they do? They enabled them,” explained Moore.

Really, so President Obama would be so much better off if he had taken over the banks and discarded our capitalist system in one fell swoop? What a stupid fucking idea that would guarantee an all out attack on him as a socialist, which might be good in Michael’s world, but for someone who is trying to fix the big fucking mess that was handed to him, not such a great idea. The naiveté of some of these people is staggering. And of course, Moore also throws in the fact that he expanded the effort in Afghanistan and claimed he caved to the right. He campaigned on expanding our presence in Afghanistan, don’t you remember? Or were your lips wrapped around Hillary’s ass so tight that you missed it? Here is even more bullshit from Michael Moore on Keith Olbermann…

“Everything that we’ve been trying to push them to do has now come back to bite them in a profound way to the point where they’re very frightened, as they should be, about the election in a couple of months,” Moore said

You should be frightened, you dumb fuck, because you and your stupid cohorts on the far left are helping Republicans to gain back control of our government and where will you be then? Oh, making money producing documentaries about Republicans, your cottage industry. Do you and Keith really give a shit about progressive ideas or are you just out for your own shameless self promotion. That last statement about being frightened shows that you don’t get it and really aren’t too concerned about the consequences of a Republican House of Representatives. How fucking stupid are you Michael Moore? Here is a little more stupidity from Michael Moore…

“To go after your core base, I mean the people that are really — the ones that go out and carry the water for you, to do the hard work, it’s like — I mean this is the guy, Gibbs, you don’t want him like drafting the fund-raising letter for the next election cycle. It will begin something like ‘Dear biggest Obama supporters, you suck. Now send us money, please.’ It’s just like it’s totally crazy,” he said.

If the president’s “core base” are people saying he’s just like Bush, who fucking needs that “core base”. Seriously, if he thinks the presidents core base thinks like he does, he is really living in his own fantasy world. And then his “fund-raising letter” bit, doesn’t that read like a 14 year old wrote it. “Dear biggest Obama supporter, you suck”. It’s not funny and it is very juvenile. I may pick apart Keith’s special comment if I feel so inclined, it sounded like a 14 year old who just discovered a thesaurus for the first time.

I had the opportunity a few months ago to meet Michael Moore, he came to our town for a fundraiser for a local theater and I know the people who were bringing him in. They offered me the opportunity to meet him and I passed. Even though I like some of what Michael does as far as shining a light on the corruption in the Republican party and the government, I’ve always thought his movies cross over the line and take huge leaps at conspiracies that exist in Michael’s head alone. I have to give him credit for being a successful filmmaker, I only hope I make as much as he does someday. But I plan to do it by presenting information for people to make their own conclusions.

So all of these “professional left” who are jumping in front of Robert Gibb’s bullets, ought to back up and take a reality check. Do you really think President Obama is just like Bush? And if so, you really do need to lay off the crack pipe and get into rehab. I’ll link to it one more time, that awesome site that is chronicling the president’s accomplishments, and I dare you to go and read the whole fucking thing and then tell me that he is just like Bush.

The last thing I’ll say is how low can Keith’s ratings go? I, for one, will not be watching his show anymore for many reasons. This last special comment is just part of the reason. He spends about a third of his show teasing what is coming up later in the show. If I wanted to watch that type of shit, I would watch Entertainment Tonight. The core base, that I know of, think the president has done a great job. They don’t watch the inside Washington shows like I do. They live their lives, watch network news once in a while and see that he passed health care reform, he saved the economy from a major collapse, he’s bringing the troops home from Iraq and has set a timetable for bringing them home from Afghanistan, he has increased funding for the arts and humanities, he’s done more for the environment than any president ever….just ask any environmentalist, he’s kept teachers on the job, he’s fixing our crumbling infrastructure, he’s appointing competent justices to the Supreme Court…go read that awesome site I linked to above for hundreds of more examples of progressive things this president has done.

Get over yourselves, professional left, you’re acting like a bunch of whiny ass kids. And like I said before, if you took offense to Robert Gibbs statement about being drug tested and really do think President Obama is just like Bush, you have to put that crack pipe down and join Lindsey Lohan in rehab.

  1. Once again, you hit the nail on the head! You have an awesome blog! Thank you so much for telling the hardcore truth about what is really going on. It breaks my heart to see idiots fall in line behind the real professional left, and act as if they are so hurt by Gibbs’ comment. I hate to point out racism, but it really seems as if there is a concerted effort to bring down this administration.

  2. Thanks Roxee. I’m glad I have an outlet to rage about these selfish assholes who don’t seem to really care about people, but instead their big fucking egos. If no one else will take them on, I will. I just loved it when Mark Halperin asked Sam Stein, “do you read the Huffington Post”. Mark climbed up quite a bit in my book after saying that. Of course, his reason for taking on the “professional left” is probably because he’s one of the established media guys who resents the blogosphere.

  3. Did anyone finish watching Maddow last night? her whole show was about letting Gibbs and the President know who the Professional Left was. She was pretty snarky. I had to turn her off, just like Olberman the other night. It’s really sad how are country is so divided we can’t even work together for the betterment of all peoples. And our President campaigned on all people not just liberal an progressives.

  4. The professional left spends 20 months pissing on Obama’s head and trying to convince the rest of us that it’s just rain, yet when Gibbs calls them on their bullshit, they go all victimy.

    I told you the other night that I would need a lobotomy after Michael Moore’s interview. In my next life, I should be a psychic friend. :-)

    I’ve been moving away from Keith’s show for months. I’m now wondering how I ever dedicated one hour of my day to him in the first place. The multiple “Special Comments” had begun to work my nerves, but the Friday Thurber readings were the last straw for me. After Rachel’s show last night with her snarky remark that she was going to piss off the White House and she didn’t care – strictly juvenile and so beneath her show. I guess I better find new programming for the 8:00 hour, too.

  5. Anderson Cooper is pretty good, I’m not sure exactly what time he comes on. I’m not a fan of Larry King’s show. If things keep going well for me, I might start my own damn cable network called “The Truth, Bitches”.

    • Sounds good to me.Go For it. I will watch if I am still around. LOL

    • You can sign me up for that network as well! I’m getting so tired of listening to all of these manic progressives relentlessly take cheap shots at the President and then act all hurt when someone on his team dares to respond. They remind me of a bunch of school yard bullies who like taunting others from afar, but piss in their pants if they ever get confronted over one of their insults.

  6. Michael Moore isn’t just an idiot but a huge hypocrite. Anyone who takes Michael Moore seriously isn’t worth taking seriously them self.

    I don’t believe a word of what Michael Moore says but I do enjoy watching him for the comedic value. He reminds me of the court jester who thinks he’s a valued adviser to the king.

    • He really does make liberals look bad. I like your jester analogy, CH.

      But I do have to say that I don’t agree with all of what you said, Michael Moore has shined the light on things that Bush did that would have gone unnoticed otherwise. He has some value, but his negatives probably outweigh his value.
