I have seen more Obama supporters write about his impending assassination than opponents (the weirdos who feel that their candidates are always the special ones that are destined be murdered).

On the plus side it should keep Clinton off the nomination.

And Olbermann seems like a tool.

Well if Obama is assinated in June, then we know who did it.

An unfortunate comment by Hillary. Sensationalism by Mr. Olberman (surprise!).

Hillary slipped up bigtime, but she is not the nominee, so let's all MoveOn .

I'm loving Keith Olbermann's verbal ass kickings lately. He's summed up how a lot of people feel recently in his "Special Comments" to Bush the other week and now Hillary.

Wow, he's like a left-wing equivalent of a Fox anchor, isn't he?

He has been getting progressively worse.

He is like a ranting and raving little child.


His phony hysterics are getting hard to watch.


This proves only one thing to me,
how insecure Obama supporters are about their candidate.

Everytime Hillary has brought up RFK it has only been in the context of the primary race going through June. And she has done so in the same sentense with her husband Bill Clinton campaigning through June.

Is she sending out signals that she is hoping someone will assassinate Bill Clinton?

Sympathy votes would push her over the edge.

Yeah. Just a weeeee bit melodramatic. I generally agree with his overall points, but he waaaaay overcooks 'em.

I prefer my news and political editorial commentary from less yelly, bombastic sources. I got halfway through that and had to turn it off - the man was practically foaming at the mouth.

I'm sorry I just had to laugh at this.

Yep, she's just acted as if she was standing with him, but really she's been plotting this for years.

Biased, hypocritical, self-important?..... yeah.

But also smart and entertaining.

Bill O'Reilly, much?

It's funny how much MSNBC is starting to mirror Fox News, down to the 'tee'.

It's a proven business plan, why not?

Here's the difference to me. A rather large difference, if you ask me.

When he started his self aggrandizing 'Special Comments' about Bush and how so many of the mainstream media seemed to sit by and just report and condescendingly wince etc. , he went out there and took a stand. I think he had a lot of people on his side. It wasn't a leap to make. I agreed with him outside of his arrogance.

Then, he started his war with Fox News, which is clearly biased by any measure of objectivity. I'm not sure he suspected his own network would begin to slip down that path. Of course, he was on board the Obama train, so who cares right?

Then you have the nature of his own show, where not a SINGLE person is brought on to 'disagree' with him or oppose his views.

Yet, he remains on the anti-"Fox is biased and incredible" train not realizing his own hypocrisy when he refuses to allow any so called "news analysis" that doesn't agree with him.

He's been anti-Clinton since the early part of the year and has essentially admitted as much. How objective is this toolbag if he can't be fair to his own 'party'? Fox and CNN didn't even cover this "story", yet it's on MSNBC as 'Breaking News'. Good call, Dan Abrams, run MSNBC as alternative to Fox. I bet their numbers grow. Newsflash: THE DEM PRIMARY IS OVER! That won't suffice Olberman, I'm sure. We are bound for another diatribe the likes of Shaun Hannity wouldn't even bother with.

Olberman is a self important, leftist hypocrite who is biased towards his wing.
Pretty much gospel at this point.

He's Bizarro O'Reilly. And yet the same people who watch him, villify Bill'O.

What's wrong with the American political system? People who don't see through the bullshit, just the same as O'Reilly or Hannity etc.

"Friday was not the first time Mrs. Clinton referred to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in such a context. In March, she told Time magazine: “Primary contests used to last a lot longer. We all remember the great tragedy of Bobby Kennedy being assassinated in June in L.A. My husband didn’t wrap up the nomination in 1992 until June. Having a primary contest go through June is nothing particularly unusual.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who has endorsed Mrs. Clinton, defended her remarks in a telephone interview on Friday evening.

“I’ve heard her make that argument before,” Mr. Kennedy said, speaking on his cellphone as he drove to the family compound in Hyannis Port, Mass. “It sounds like she was invoking a familiar historical circumstance in support of her argument for continuing her campaign.”

I wonder when, in this primary campaign, you let go of logical reasoning.

Because if Olbermann's over-the-top rantings prove anything to me, it's that maybe he let it get to his head. But congrats on making it about Obama!

Olbermann's "feud" with O'Reilly is laughable at this point. Olbermann is obsessed. He talks about him almost every night. I sense either jealousy or a little bit of a crush. He wishes he was O'Reilly, who triples Olbermann's ratings nightly. Not only that, Olbermann's show is the most watched show on MSNBC, yet still gets beaten every night by 3 Fox News shows. I'd be angry all the time, too.

Not only does he never have anyone who disagrees with him, but he has the exact same people on all the time. I bet I can predict next week's guests: Howard Fineman, Johnathan Alter, Rachel Maddow, Eugene Robinson. I could probably predict his worst persons, too.
