Would you hit it?So apparently Dana Milbank used to visit Keith Olbermann’s show every now and again, until he didn’t any more, because he called Barack Obama presumptuous. Now Milbank will be mean to Barack on CNN instead, and maybe grow a creepy Wolf Blitzer beard. We never watched this fellow on Countdown, assuming that if something were important enough, it would be brought to our attention. (Photo via FishbowlDC.) [Politico]

  1. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

    But it’s still not important.

    Neither is Milbank, whose next original thought will be his first.

  2. Dana Milbank cleared up a lot for me. I mean, of course Barack Obama is presumptuous—he’s running for president! And of course John McCain isn’t presumptuous—he’s clearly not running for president.

    Weird. There’s usually more than just one guy after this job. It’s a strange year.

  3. Dana called the backlash against his shitty article “whining”.
    Apparently it’s whining when you get called out for reinterpreting a quote to suit your own agenda.
    Maybe we could make this universal. I always thought the backlash against serial killers was “whining” from the ‘still alive’.

  4. [re=51905]Larry McAwful[/re]: Ah, see, but we have a full slate: a Muslim, a crazy Negro Christian, a Luo tribesman, a Hawaiian Shark God, a not-black-enough Oreo, a too-black scary person, an elitist, a family man, a love god who melts German chicks melt down at the gym, and many many more!

  5. [re=51913]Doglessliberal[/re]: Well, now I’m torn. I mean, I think having a Hawaiian shark god as president would be way cool, but on the other hand, anyone who can help me score with German chicks is A-okay in my book. I guess I’ve still got three months to make up my mind…

  6. [re=51912]4tehlulz[/re]: and the people with the “homosexual gay agenda”.

    [re=51917]Doglessliberal[/re]: it’s very uppity, don’t you think?

  7. Milbank isn’t the worst hack in the world, but it’s just completely obvious when he’s in “Must write 1 national campaign article per day” mode and tries ridiculously hard to come up with new angles every day.

    It’s really the main problem with beat reporters. They have such tunnel vision and never accept the fact that some days there’s really just no news on their beat.

  8. I say this with all honesty. Dana Milbank’s talents are far better suited to CNN.


    Did you guys ever settle his hash for talking smack about Wonkette in that bar?

  9. Remember when Cheney shot that guy in the face, and Milbank showed up on Hardball wearing orange hunting gear? He was ridiculed for that, which is a shame because it was the only time I ever saw him not looking like a smug, self-important tool.

  10. Why are these guys airing this crap in public? Does anyone in these bloated, egocentric media circles ever actually sit down in a private meeting and discuss problems like professional adults? That’s exactly what they should have done, and that’s exactly what they still should do, even if Milbank took his toys and ran home to Mommy.

    Gawd, people, it’s something that you should have learned in elementary school: If you have a disagreement, you sit down, in private, and talk about it, and try to work toward a solution. It’s that simple.

  11. [re=51941]Botswana Meat Commission FC[/re]: some days there’s really just no news on their beat Lucky for Wonkette there’s always some ass-fucking going on.

  12. You just gotta love the liberal embrace of free speech. The only caveats of expression are 1) No critical statements regarding Barry, 2) You must hate anything not of the extreme left and 3) You must under no circumstances piss off a bunch of thirty year old virgins sitting in their rooms all night posting meaningless crap on the Daily Kos. If any of these are found to be the case then you must be banished. Viva La Liberacion’!!!!!

  13. [re=52109]rickmv[/re]: “you must not hate anything out of the extreme left?”

    What? Really? I was just sitting here trying to meet my quota, looking forward to one of those socialist rallies, planning on attacking the elites and then sipping from my Hybrid gas tank because ALL LIBRULS ARE SOCIALIST PIGS OUT TO DESTROY US ALL AND THERE IS NO INBETWEEN.

    People like you remind me of why I hate the EXTREME Nazi right who have no desire other than to destroy the very values they hypocritically stand up for. Therefore, FUCK YOU, you troll. Eat a fucking dick for Jeebus and then get back to me.
    Fuck your mother. Go to hell. Have a good one.

  14. [re=52152]yellowdogdem[/re]: Agreed, except Alaska’s Smoking Hot (TM) Republican Governor. She has apparent immunity, and rightfully so.

  15. hey shorts,
    What a fucking fag you are. Milbank was axed because of know nothing dipshits like you you fucking douchebag. I love coming into sites like this and pissing into your echo chamber. You really think sitting there with your dick in your hand hurling insults into the internet is some kind of sign of intelligence. Pull your dildo out of your ass and give it a long sloppy lick right up the side.

  16. [re=52407]rickmv[/re]: I suppose I am a Republican if you mean I like airport bathrooms, Senatorial pages or pretty much anything I can stick up my ass. That’s fine by me. Here I come, Larry!

  17. Oh paleeeze. As long as Milbank was on his best Obama loving behavior, he was okey dokey. But let a guy move out of lockstep and he’s dog shit. Apparently there is no more room for independent thought on the left than there is on the right. It’s true that Countdown IS the answer to Bill O’Reilly – too bad Keith can’t handle anyone who disagrees with him, either. Sickening.

    By the way, I’ve contributed to Obama’s campaign and I’m voting for him, but I can’t relate to the kind of mentality I’m seeing here. Obama’s not a baby. You seem to think the guy is made of sugar and can’t take any pissin on his parade. He can take a punch, and deliver one, too. Your snarky hate is a liability. It makes Obama look weak. Discuss

  18. [re=52471]Muffintop[/re]: That’s all I was trying to say. I liked Milbank and the fact that one column which takes a lighthearted shot at Obama is all it takes to get him kicked off of Olby’s show is disgusting. Thought fascists like pissinmyshorts up there are the reason why I can no longer watch Countdown without knowing I am watching nothing more than a strictly regimented Obama commercial. If I want to be spoon fed propaganda I’ll just watch some Hitler speeches on the History Channel.
