AnnieNYC is an extremely active PUMA from NYC. She is out several times a week handing out fliers, setting up tables, talking to people, organizing events and attending meetings.
Well, tonight, she was running late to a meeting and bumped into Keith Olberman… the following is a story of that encounter.
XPosted From AnnieNYC
I was going fliering tonight and walked past the NBC building, on his way walking to the building i ran into KO. I stopped him “are you keith olberman?” him in bold. there is some stuff missing, but most of it is here. He was nervous and nerdy, hands in his pockets the whole time, he really seemed like a hollow fool. i was actually very surprised, i thought he had more than this.
are you keith olberman?
Ok, what is with the hillary hate.
I don’t hate her.
gimme a break. what is your problem with her, just tell me.
i don’t hate her, i hate her policies and tactics
her policies? Obama is to the right of her!
he’s moving to the middle because he’s trying to win!
the middle?! he agrees with alito and scalia on the death penalty, he actually wants *more* death penalties, what kind of policy is that? Now he’s against affirmative action…
well he’s trying to win
well not only did he vote yay on fisa, but now at&t is sponsoring the convention. that’s ok with you?
well, i was very mad about his vote on fisa.
well at least hillary sticks to her guns and she wanted to win.
(then we get into tactics)
her tactics? like what.
the 3am phone call…
well he failed that test didn’t he, russia goes to war with georgia and all he can say is he wants a shave ice. and what about the smearing of the clintons as racist? what about those tactics, donna brazile and saying fairy tale is racist, clyburn, etc.
that wasn’t him.
don’t you think it was his job to ratchet it down? do you know how many times i’ve been called racist for not supporting him? it was his job to ratchet that down, i campaigned for her in Philadelphia and we were treated like *shit* because of the smearing of her as a racist. Wasn’t it his job to deal with his supporters?
i think he is
oh really? what about late may axelrod faxing YOUR worst person in the world report on her RFK comments to all the media, really? hillary is the worst person in the world?!
that was only 10 minutes, and that’s axelrod, it’s not him…
that’s the head of his campaign, he already had the win in the bag, and even now he hasn’t said what he needs to to ratchet down the hate. He could have said at any time “she’s a great lady and she’s worked throughout her life for civil rights, and he hasn’t.
(super nervous) i think he is
Well think of the alternative
The entire time, NO INTELLECTUAL RESPONSE WHAT-SO-EVER. NONE. NADA. ZILCH. Nothing new, just anything that some uninformed kid on the street would say. WOW. i was blown away by how lame his responses were. amazing. He even at one point mentioned that he was called a misogynist, as if he couldn’t understand why! wow.
I have one thing to say about that… actually, just one word….
