Whatever gave anyone the impression KO was Obama’s spokesman?

This is a moment so rich with irony, it must be fattening. (added it to my Schadenfreude list

The guy  who said someone has to take Hillary in a room and only he comes out thinks he is not Obama’s spokesperson.

The guy who praised Obama as brave for voting for FISA for standing up to his base, thinks he is not an Obama operative.

The guy who said Hillary wanted Obama assassinated as she mentioned the long RFK primary and had the Obama campaign fax his rant to all journalists think he is not an Obama operative.

The guy who, when confronted with the absurdity of this attack, defended himself “it was only for 10 minutes”

What made him have these strange delusions?

Well, it seems that when he criticized Obama’s latest bestest speech he was deluged with B0bot attack

Matthews/Olbermann getting bashed for their analysis on local

call-in shows this morning. The one show is my local call-in, the other is Bill Press’s show. “With friends like them, Obama doesn’t need enemies.” HA!

With friends like them…Someone felt entitled to loyalty. I wonder why.

So now KO is like Elephant Man screaming: I am a human being”! In his case

‘I Am Not… Any President’s Spokesman’

Sorry, Elephant Man, the appearances are so hard to get over!

The story is only made more delicious by the fact that it’s vicious Orange Cheeto training their sites on KO. And Keith, the attack dog, can’t take it. He does an Eric Cartman:

Screw you guys. I am going home!

Keith Olbermann Checks Out Of Daily Kos After Criticism From Left

here’s his huffy departure

Check, Please

Some of the funniest part, excerpted by Madiaite

You want Cheerleaders? Hire the Buffalo Jills. You want diaries with conspiracy theories, go nuts. If you want this site the way it was even a year ago, let me know and I’ll be back.

The hypocrisy. It burns. What exactly happened an year ago? They were all cheerleading – they and KO over the Heritage Foundation boon to the health insurance industry.

Concludes Mediaite

As he sticks with his ‘non-Obama-cheerleader’ position, it’s now clear there are some in this country far farther left than he is. It is a testament to the polarized American public that Olbermann would be on the outs with the Daily Kos and his liberal Twitter followers.

Concludes Not Your Sweetie: Obama managed to unite left and right with his incompetence. Jonah Goldberg, Mother Jones, Krutanhammer, Ted Rall and Keith Olberman are starting to sound the same.

Only a few loyalists remain – like W’s freepers once. Steve Colbert used to call them “backwash”

Update
– Oh look, poor Keith, they took him into a room and only the Kossacks came out.
In Bobotland they have a
as the situation is so rife with irony and hypocrisy, it’s hard for me to decide whether this is a good or a bad thing.
also, a thread on the Cheetos kerfluffle
one of the more sugnificant views:
. I was surprised to see so many at DU turn against him.

Especially after so much he has done. To disagree is one thing, but to totally denounce him, definitely surprised me.
So much he has done. As a non-spokesperson, of course.

BP has came with new ways of killing animals in the ocean: burning excess oil

Sea creatures are fleeing the spill

and dolfins too

while local sanctuaries are doing triage to only save the fittest

And new places in Florida – Walton Beach – get hit

But all is well, as BP will pay the small people (the remark didn’t make the headlines)

and hey, they said sorry, what more do you want?

Oh, and speaking of money, check the WSJ headline: small people will be screwed of some more: the end of free checking!

If I see more interesting headlines on the street, I’ll update as NYC is barely represented in Newseum today.
