I Had Olbermann at 6:21 PM!
The repeat of Countdown is playing in the background, with Keith's No. 5 story having been entitled, "Mad Max."

It originally aired at 8:00. Well, this is what I posted 99 minutes earlier:




Mad Max 4(sale): Beyond Blunderdom

You know, I'd provide you a figure as to the amount of dough that the insurance industry has given to Sen. Baucus, but I cannot, 'cause every time I check, THE NUMBERS GET BIGGER!

Why is this man Chair of the Finance Committee? What the hell, why is he even in the Democratic caucus??? Oh, yeah, sure, he's so very disappointed by the "intransigence" of the GOP Gang of Sucks---'scuse me---Gang of Six members. He worked SO hard for the common people of the country, but, golly gosh darn it to heck, this bill was the best he could do, and isn't that what really matters?

No. It's not.

What matters is that Max Baucus, like far too many of the people we elect to act in our stead, is bought-and-paid-for. He never had any intention of doing even one damn thing that would discomfit his financiers in any way!

He didn't fail, because he had no real intention of succeeding. No mistakes here, for that would imply actual effort.

Sen. Baucus didn't blunder. He went beyond any Peter Principle, and has ended exactly where he began: In servitude to his corporate masters.




Not trying to be disruptive, but, when I come up with a title and a post that was here one hour and thirty-nine minutes before a major political talk show host presented the same damn thing---and I get no acknowledgment---then, yeah, I kinda/sorta/maybe get pissed off!

1. Let me get this straight -
you're reposting something you posted a while before KO did a story on the same thing?

What is it you're seeking, exactly?

Applause?

A commendation of some kind?

Clearly, you're craving recognition.

Perhaps this response of mine will serve to fill that need?

Other than that, I can't see why you'd be so chuffed with yourself for stating the obvious................................

3. What did Keith say aside from "Mad Max"?
Edited on Wed Sep-16-09 10:43 PM by Bjorn Against
Did he copy any of your direct words in your post? If he said "Mad Max 4(sale): Beyond Blunderdome" then you could probably sue, if he just said "Mad Max" then you don't have a case at all because people parody movie titles all the time and that is a simple one.

4. AGREE - YOU ARE EXACTLY CORRECT ON WHAT THIS GUY IS DOING!
Corporate political contributions, endorsements and dealings run the government today, not the people! My feeling is the country has been sold to corporate America over the years and this is very very difficult to turn around, if ever. As soon as you try to correct it many cry socialism, not even knowing the definition... I was so disappointed listening to this guy today it made me nauseous... This whole thing is becoming a CF. I was pleased to hear Howard Dean call him out for what his plan is!

6. If you want to keep thinking this is an original idea don't Google "Mad Max Baucus"
