Surprise surprise ladies and gentleman: Politico reports that of the 535 members of Congress, 237 are millionaires. That’s 45%. Forty-fucking-five percent, compared to only 1% of Americans overall. While you were busy stuffing your face with corn fructose byproducts, they were busy stuffing their pockets with bribes. And just remember children: democracy works.
Seeing as my I fucking hate Keith Olbermann post is the number 1 google search result for… I fucking hate Keith Olbermann, I feel that it is my duty to enumerate the reasons why I fucking hate Keith Olbermann:
#1 He is an overpaid, wanna-be progressive in the mold of the typical over-educated, under-critical New England Liberal. This can be summed up as “I want a reconfiguration of the American socio-economic landscape, as long as it doesn’t impact my privilege, challenge my own lifestyles and perspective, or induce a structural shift in the inequalities in American society that I benefit from.” These are also the same people that think Barack Obama is ‘change’.
#2 He thinks he is a real journalist. Everyday of his life seems to be a painful exercise in thinking he’s Edward Murrow. Bad news buddy, you’re the centrist version of a Fox News commentator, just spewing vitriol into the magic shiny box every night.
#3 He wins the award for douchiest quote ever, “I’m not a liberal, I’m an American.”
#4 He is a direct descendant of Pol Pot.
There you have it. All the reasons I fucking hate Keith Olbermann.
