No Fun At All

Well I wonder if I should even respond. On my previous post someone calling themselves Aurora left the following comment.

"Incoherent" ramblings is just about right. Do you have any other platform besides Bushbashing? To each his own but couldn't find much to keep me turning the page here.
I imagine you're one of those latte-sipping lefties who couldn't debate his way out of a wet paper bag. No fun at all.

Well he(she?) obviously didn't turn the page because there was no grasp whatsoever of my ways. I should probably just ignore them but I can't help it.

Bushbashing. You bet. He an imbecile of the third degree. But contrary to what you think I'm a republican, always have been. I long for Barry Goldwater not W and his gang of neocons. This bunch has done more to destroy true conservative politics than anyone in the last 200 years. Frankly, I harbor a distrust of most politicians.

Latte-sipping??? Please coffee with some half&half only. I'm too cheap to buy $5 java from overrated coffee houses. Beer is my preferred after hours consumption. I'm pretty blue collar.

A leftie??? Once again just outta left field. All in all I'm mostly a libertarian, politically conservative and socially myob. Yes I like Olbermann, because he's entertaining and newsworthy. Please Billo or Paula Zahn? (I understand PZ is on the way out - good.) Is your idea of news Rush? I read a lot of different news and blogs. Lets go for at least a semblance of balance.

I'm non-religious so I'm bothered by all fanatics of that stripe. And judging by the tone of Aurora's blog we're not too far apart on my attitudes about Islam. It's one thing to have to put up with our Christian right becoming the official cause of my republican party, put fanatical Islam is ready to kill us all for not seeing the light. It's a culture war that we need to be fighting. Inundate their young with levis. ipods and rock and roll music. Beam them our mindless TV shows.

Debate. Well Aurora, I noticed how fast you moved to bashing me. If you want to debate lets do it. Otherwise you're just a Bush asskissing Rush-Billo mouth piece. So there.

Countdown With Keith Olbermann gets the recognition it deserves.

But it's the structure of "Countdown," which averaged 721,000 viewers in July, a bump for the show, that seems so savant-like.

The form does what CBS tried to do when it hired Katie Couric: It makes news feel like pop culture. Nick Hornby did this with love in his novel "High Fidelity" ("my desert island, all-time, top five most memorable split-ups, in chronological order," the book begins).

Putatively, "Countdown" counts down the day's top five stories, ending with No. 1. But this is really just artifice to make the medicine go down. The No. 5 story, which leads the broadcast, is the longest segment and usually concerns the biggest political story of the day (read: Olbermann calling out the latest Bush administration imbroglio). The so-called No. 1 story (read: Olbermann calling out Lindsay Lohan's latest imbroglio) is often puffery, or what Olbermann calls "water-cooler."
"I had a conversation with the large people at CBS before they went and decided to go to Katie Couric," he said. "We sat at length talking about this. They had a mixture of greedy appreciation and suspicion about whether or not anything like this, you know, how could you do a 'Countdown' show on the 'CBS Evening News.' Well, of course you couldn't. Now."
