Shock: Man Who Once Railed Against Iraq War for Diverting Us from the Real War in Afghanistan Now Says It's Time to Abandon the War in Afghanistan for a Real War To Be Determined Later
— Ace

And remember what they say, as they once said of Walter Cronkite: When you'e lost Keith Olbermann, you've lost Keith Olbermann. Plus whatever desperate fan he's finger-banging in a hotel room this week.

And of course he can't just call for defeat. No, there has to be a bad guy here, and that bad guy can't be Keith Olbermann. The bad guy is... Pentagon officials who just want to fight unending wars because dat's how deys gets paid:

The Pentagon, often to our eternal relief, but just as often to our eternal regret is in the War business. You were right, Mr. President, to slow the process down, once a series of exit strategies was offered to you by men whose power and in some case livelihoods are predicated on making sure all exit strategies, everywhere, forever, don't really result in any service-man or woman actually exiting.

These men are still in the belly of what President Eisenhower so rightly, so prophetically, christened the military-industrial complex. Now and later as the civilian gray eminences with "retired" next to their names, formally lobbying the House and Senate and informally lobbying the nation through television and the printed word, to "engage" here, or "serve" there, or "invest" everywhere, they are, in many cases, just glorified hardware salesmen.

And of course Bush planned this all, too:

....

Mr. President, last fall, you were elected. Not General McChrystal, not Secretary Gates, not another Bushian Drone of a politician. You. On the Change Ticket. On the pitch that all politicians are not created equal.

And upon arrival you were greeted by a Three Mile Island of an economy, so bad that in the most paranoid recesses of the mind one could wonder if the Republicans didn't plan it that way...

Keith Olbermann just admitted that his "Special Comments" come straight from "the most paranoid recesses of the mind."

Not that it matters much, but this graduate of Cow College, I think, shops for his literary allusions in a Bluffer's Guide to the Classics. In his rant he references something he thinks is in Catch 22, in "minder-binder lingo" -- that's the character Milo Minderbinder he means -- but what he references is not a Minderbinder catchphrase at all. Minderbinder's catchphrase was "What's good for the [Minderbinder Trading] Syndicate, is good for you," a parody of the old saying "What's good for GM is good for America."

I have no idea on earth what the hell Olbermann is referencing. I've read Catch 22 about 20 times. I think he probably got it from some dolt's mistaken entry in Wikipedia.

Thanks to DrewM.

7 Don't worry, Obama will be for war some day.

Specifically, the war against "domestic terrorists" who "attend tea parties" and do not vote "Democrat" who belong in "FEMA death camps."

Anything else? Not so much.

Unless we want to attack someone like England.

I'm pretty sure he'd be down with that.

Every time I stumble across an Olby rant, I cannot help but think of that Ren and Stimpy episode where the boys take up pro wrestling and Stimpy has to deliver a spittle-flecked rant before the match begins.* I think I'll just start referring to Olby as "Killer Kadoogan" from here on out.

*Can't find the clip on YouTube, or I'd link it.

29 Olberman's rant and Michael Moore's editorial today pitiful whining about his messiah possibly sending more troops to Afghanistan.

If it weren't for the fact that our troops are on the battlefield at this moment risking their lives while their CIC hides under his desk trying to decide how to best politically serve HIMSELF...then I would be enjoying the howling of these fools.

In honor of Keith, I dedicate my state of the union address:

This is my State of the Union Address.  The President’s address has been pre-empted because it is full of lies, self congratulation, self aggrandizement, socialist blather, swamp gas, and empty rhetoric.

For 233 years, give or take a few anomalies, elected leaders of the United States strove to build an honorable country, a country that existed within the constraints and under the guidance of the
Constitution of the United States of America, a country built on a foundation of belief that rights are endowed, willed to every man by the Creator of the universe.  The product of this striving is – was an imperfect country, but a good country, a country respected – sometimes feared – sometimes admired – sometimes hated – often copied – but, again with only a few anomalies, respected.  The product of this striving was a country that unselfishly spent its most valuable capital – the lives of its young men and women – to foster and preserve freedom, not only for the citizens of this country but for people across the world.  Through this process mistakes were made, often grievous but by-in-large, with honorable intent.  The product of this striving was a great country.  A great country. 

In the course of one short year, the country has changed.  Do you believe it?  Greatness has been supplanted by meekness – independence by dependence – respect by disdain – pride by shame – honor by lies.  In one short year, in contrition for its greatness, the country that was feared, admired, often hated but always respected has lost that respect and cast off its self respect like a worn out garment.  The country, whose attributes were on loan to it from G-d, became a country whose greatness was maligned and whose failings were lamented to her friends and enemies by leaders who exalted only themselves.  The country once esteemed became a country scorned – a country ridiculed.

In one short year, the great and honorable country that took 233 years to build now languishes in a cesspit of lies, slander, malignity, corruption, greed, and jealousy - alien traits that have undermined the foundation on which the country was built.

There are millions of people in this country who long to return this country to the foundations on which it was conceived and constructed.  A half generation ago, these people were past their prime, but no longer.  Now these people are young.  They are strong, battle tested and forged by fire and they will not long tolerate the dismantlement of their freedoms by dependents, by leeches, by sponges that content themselves by take from or living off of the sweat and the sacrifice of their betters.  These young men and women want the opportunity, the possibility to succeed by their own merits and they will not tolerate having these opportunities denied them by their inferiors.  And those from half generation ago, those who served and led in honor, will now follow the lead of the young.  They will strive shoulder to shoulder with a new generation to preserve UNCHANGED, the greatness of this country and will oppose any with the arrogance to assume that can change it for the better.

Those with designs of change on this country would do well to take heed to these new young patriots.  You dismiss them at your peril.

On a lark, I turned away from the nfl game to see what was brewing on MSLSD.   Rachel Maddow is interviewing Dan Rather on Afghanistan strategy.  Strategy isn't the issue.  Dithering for more than 3 months is.  The Generals on the ground gave Obama the strategy months ago.   This has been completely designed to stall until Obama got some political tasks done or at least close to being complete.  Obama had no intention of making any strategy decision, he isn't capable of such decisions.

I just saw Huckabee's total bullshit.   First Huckabee said the two people he respects most are military people and police.   So what?   Huckabee is making a non-sequitor.   If Huckabee respects cops, he shouldn't release those who make cops jobs harder or cops dead.  Secondly, Huckabee said he didn't pardon, Clemmons, he merely commuted his sentence to xyz, which coincidentally made him immediately eligible for release on parole.

Huckabee is toast.

What happens is that said girlfriend has a different political view than the purported conservative.  So he becomes liberal for her.

In CJ's case, he was never truly a conservative, but now he's become as irrational as a vegan chick who thinks her Women's Studies degree is some sort of positive measure of intellect.

97 The lefties are always jizzing over the famous "military-industrial complex" idea.  The never seem to remember Eisenhower's next statement in the speech, which certainly applies to Climategate among many other things:

"Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."

Exactly the opposite.  You see, he's convinced himself that by not taking all of his policy prescriptions, the Right has dooooooooomed the GOP to eternal irrelevancy.  The GOP winning in '10 would be further real-world evidence that the fantasy world he's constructed in his head -- where AGW is settled science and Census workers are murdered by teabaggers and anyone who objects to the march of radical Islam in the West is a racist -- is completely unsustainable.

Far from triggering a return to sanity, the GOP victory in '10 will more likely cause him to suffer a psychotic break.

Biden is a clown.  Funny, scary and clumsy.  Biden has done zero with his life.  He has served in the Senate from Delaware since he turned 30.  Zero accomplishments and plagarism on his resume.

Obama would be a clown, if he wasn't so angry, Marxist and hell bent on screwing America to achieve some payback he percieves for the parts of the world that have provided very little to man kind.   Obama is a narcissist.  Obama has served kool aid to millions who are to dumb to see this hack for what he is.  Fortunately, Obama is also inept and ham-handed.  He will fall.

Charles should have let a Kos diarist ghosted that one. He has become too psychotic to throw together a good psychotic rant, somewhat like being too drunk to enjoy being drunk. It reminds me of the aforementioned Walter Cronkite only in this sense: after Uncle Walter was put to pasture, he wrote a column for years that no one read. His last one bitched and moaned about how no one read newspapers any longer, which was to say his column. When news of this tirade spread, there were two reactions:

a) Who is Walter Cronkite?

b) Is Walter Cronkite still alive?

This menustrating little cocksucker Charles Johnson, who never wrote an original thought in his life, won't even get a single (b) reaction. But Lord knows there will be plenty of (a)'s after left-wing bloggers gush about his honesty and integrity. Then after that circle jerks splatters the ground, Johnson will join David Frum and Andrew Sullivan in the obscurity of used whoredom.

It's bizarre.  It's beyond bizarre.   As most people grow and mature, they see the folly of their well intentioned naivette.  Johnson is tripling down on moron.

The typical liberal tripe cards are played.  Palin, Buchanan, and Racism.

I'm certain that I have Charles Johnson pegged.  He is being paid.  He has been bought.  I never truly liked his blog, but I read it occasionaly.  But if you look at how many comments he has on such a ridiculous wierd turnabout, it does give pause to wonder about cash.

I'm serious.   Johnson was bought.

Ok, I had to look at littlegreenballs to see what Mad King Chuckles was up to. That is quite a cry for attention. I get the impression he ran out of meds and was typing with one hand IYKWIMAITYD.

Maybe his patron will intervene in a way that doesn't involve lube before it gets even more messy or tragic.

Waterhouse at 44 - Amen, brother.  Preach it. 

Hussein at 69 - I'm with you.  Let's go.

Flubber at #100 - "Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite."  This will never happen.  Not with something important, like the climate. 

"The Pentagon . . . is in the War business."  What was his first clue on this one? It's our business, and we are pretty good at it.  Good enough, in fact, that nobody else can match us on the basis of sheer knowledge of war.  Some guy with a journalism degree and a career sitting in front of a camera is probably good at talking to a camera, but maybe not the go-to guy for grand strategy.

 "men whose power and in some case livelihoods are predicated on making sure all exit strategies, everywhere, forever, don't really result in any service-man or woman actually exiting." - What?  What a fucking idiot.  No, that's not how it is.  Very few generals get to be important because they lost.  Generals get to be famous because they win.  That's why Petraeus is important - he wins.

"civilian gray eminences with "retired" next to their names" - These are not the guys who came up with the strategy.  The generals that Olberdouche was wrong about in the previous paragraph are the ones who came up with the strategy.  They are the ones he was right about before that - the guys who are in the Business of War.  It's our job.  Let us do it.  We're pretty good at it. 

Hey - if you have a heart problem, do you go to a journalist, or do you go to a World Famous Cardiac Surgeon?  I'd pick the surgeon.  If you have a war problem, do you go to a journalist, or to a World Famous War Guy and General?  I'd pick the general.  Just my opinion.

Cheri,  I've had loved ones over there in both Afghan and Iraq.   One has been wounded the other has served in 2 capacities, one military, one civilian government capacity at a very high level.   My loved ones are not currently in harms way, both could be again at any time.  My anger is at the (VP Cheneys accurate word) dithering.  I understand Obama completely.  Nothing about him fools me.   He is a loser.  He doesn't have any skill necessary to make critical decisions that affect our country and specifically our loved ones in the line of fire,   Obama does not have the mental capacity nor the Patriotism to make a decision that Obama is not capable of making.  It's all calculated for Obama to get more praise and face time.

He sickens me.

So true and sad.  I work for the VA and I see men and women everyday with their injuries, troubles, and heartaches.  But, they don't complain, whine, or dither.  They get on with the business of living.  They are true American heroes.

The current President is a disgrace to the sacrifices they have and will continue to make.
 
Can you imagine if this President had to defend and honor a comrade in combat?  That individual would be like America - screwed. 
All of that said, I have great faith still in the American public that want this country to remain a great nation.  A day of reckoning is coming.

Seriously, my theory is drugs. Seriously. Performance-enhancers, feel-goods, whatever. His discourse and rhetoric have changed. He used to be reserved and circumspect. Now the slightest disagreement brings on a torrent of capslocked sarcastic hyperventilations. There's a chemical change in his brain.

Cheri. I'm sorry to be blunt, but.   Obama has  no clue, no idea what you and I are chatting about.   Obama's Mommy was a commie.   She rutted with a Commie from Kenya and got pregnant.  By the time Barry was 2, his "dreams of my father" had dumped both Mom and son.  Mom went on to Daddy 2.  Who moved them to Indonesia.  Obama tries to claim International life experience by living overseas, not mentioning,  going to a Muslim school as a 6 year old.  Just before Muslim daddy 2 dumped him and Commie Mommy.   Commie Mommy moved Barry back to her mom and dad's successful home in Hawaii, whereupon, she dumped Barry on Grandma as Obama turned 10.

Obama is left to his own  devices, Mommy has gone on to Woodstock or whatever, and Obama does drugs, gets drunk and finds Frank Marshall Davis.  His "typical white woman Grandmother" pays for Obama's prep school, and Obama uses his race to further his own Marxist goals.

I understand our Clown Prince completely.

I agree. Let us have faith in the American character.

I suspect there is only so much audience for Huff Post, Media Matters, et al type sites that are run by turncoats.  Nonetheless, it seems developing such a site is the miserable little twat's plan.

It's worth remembering that Arianna Huffington styled herself a New-Age Conservative when she was married to Republican Rep. Michael Huffington.  Apparently when he switched to the other team sexuality-wise, she was inspired to switch to the other team politically.

Sharmuta is still desperately trying to convince herself that The LunGFish is Reagan reincarnated and that LGF is National Review for the new millennium.  There's no delusion like self-delusion, like no delusion I know.

Either

(a) they were certain that Obama was going to announce the end of the Afghan campaign

or

(b) they didn't really want to make Obama do something as politically suicidal as ending the Afghan campaign, but wanted to maintain their marketability to their audience of Leftard loons.

she always knew how to whore herself to rich men, just as John Kerry whores himself to a succession of rich widows

they don't call it the oldest profession fer nuthin

>The narrative seems to be that Obama Is Not Who We Thought He Was.

they- the liberals who fell over each other to fellate Obama- know the psycho-narcissist's meltdown and complete utter failure are inevitable, and they are positioning themselves to avoid the worst of it when it happens

I have to believe there are some people here who have man-crushes on CJ.

All this time, and no answers to this trick question? Of course there is, he's in a new "Play 60" ad with the NFL on the White House lawn. Catching a football, and passing it to the next person. 

No way that was real. He's not coordinated enough for that. I've seen him pitch.

I spent 9 years at Cornell - BA, MA, PhD - started at Ag school but ended up Arts and Sciences. I refuse to look down on a fellow Cornellian because he went to one of the state colleges within the university. Not even Olbermann.
