Why does Keith Olbermann show up at a SNL closed rehearsal?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on November 1, 2008

Keith Olberman is a funny, intelligent comedian. It would be hard to classify him a a reporter.

He’s not the only one. Bill O’Reilly is one obvious example that takes the polar opposite views. We need these formats. We need entertainment. We need to appease the extreme left and extreme right with some entertainment. They are both out and out funny.

What the pubic needs to remember is their livelihood depends upon ratings. Their livelihood depends upon ratings. They take basic truths and expand them, spin them, left and right. (Hopefully Americans are not using these shows to determine their voting preferences.)

Olbermann comes across as a big, confident, intelligent guy on TV. He does a good job and his show does well.

Its comes out that Ben Affleck will be spoofing him on SNL tonight (11.1.08 NBC). Olbermann sneaks into a CLOSED SNL rehearsal to watch? Ben Affleck comments he is uncomfortable with him there.
Is Olbermann so insecure? He should take being a character on SNL as a compliment. He’s arrived! Obama. McCain. Biden. Cinton. Clinton. And especially Palin have been ripped apart on the show.

Keith – it’s a part of the job. If you are going to be “who you have created” you need to be a little more confident. Evidently your TV persona is a facade.

Team Obama or Team McCain – Who should we vote for?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on September 16, 2008

Come November most of us will either be voting for the Democrats’ candidates (Obama/Biden) or the Republicans’ candidates (McCain/Palin)?white house obama mccain cabinet

We listen to Obama, McCain, Biden, and Palin speak, and preach their policies, beliefs, and philosophies. We also take into consideration the policies of their associated political parties.

So we elect a president…. And THEN the President-Elect names his cabinet.

The people of the United States deserve better. Tell us the members of your cabinet now. Let us truly elect the team (administration) we want leading the country.

Date: 9.16.08

To: Senator Obama. Senator McCain.

Re: Naming your cabinet

Please name your cabinets now. Tell us who will be your team so we can better judge who to vote for… You must know who will be filling these positions in your administration.

Here are the positions we need. We do realize some of the positions will change after the election, but please do the best you can. We already know your Vice President, so please name your heads of the executive departments-the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, and the Attorney General. If you can, also please name your heads of the Environmental Protection Agency; Director, Office of Management and Budget; the Director, National Drug Control Policy; and the U.S. Trade Representative.

Thank you.

The People of the United States of America
