The right wing talking heads are scared of Keith Olbermann...
Case in point: Glenn Beck. I think Glenn is hilarious. He's a fear monger, and I crack up everyday when I listen to him. He's more of a moderate, so he doesn't make my head want to pop like Rush or Hannity. Anyway, he was talking about him on his show today. He apparently is planning a serious rant about the guy. He said he was a kook and a liar. (WhateveR) But that just means that they're scared of him. He also said the guy had no ratings. Yeah, right. Anyway, I thought you'd want to know what THEY are saying about our boy KO.

2. That's their playbook....
Call someone on the left a kook and crazy and if the Repugs say it enough others pick up on it.....too bad that Americans know what the game is now.....Glenn Beck racist pig....

9. Maybe that's a joke, but...
Glenn Beck is a right-wing talk radio host.

He recently got a show on CNN Headline News.

His show is new for an hour a day, and CNN repeats it again and again.

6. That's because KO is killing Glen the drunk in the ratings
He's trying to imitate the Keith Olbermann/Ted Baxter feud. But Beck is such a phony loser that nobody will even notice or give a shit.

And for a guy who claims Olbermann has no ratings, well Beck's TV ratings are even lower than KO's. And his radio show has been hemmhoraging affiliates, even Clear Channel ones, and THEY syndicate his drugged-up drunken ass!

This is all a sign that Olbermann has become a force to be reckoned with.

10. Beck lives a double life.
The man is in serious need of therapy.

12. He is hoping this will help his ratings!
what better way to try and get ratings.....you attack the big boy on the block, and lets fact it.....KO it BIG right now. DU types will tune in to hear what swill he tries to spew against/about Keith and this few fans will tune it to cheer him on.....its a win-win for this loser!
