Nice.

Also, it is very easy for Olbermann to scream at people with whom he agrees, he does it to me every time my wife watches the damn show.

olbermann is so bombastic that it is like he is playing himself as a character. I put him and Hannity in the same group. Wouldn't matter what either is saying, I just can stand how they say it.

While I often agree with him, he always reminds me of Ted Knight. It's ironic because that's the impression he does while reading transcripts of O'Reilly. What's with all the impressions?! I feel I'd punch him in the face if he was in the room with me. Tonight I tuned in and he was reading from a book in a darkened studio and sitting in a big, leather chair. Such a douchebag.

Sheesh. You'd think Olbermann--who probably the best known of MSNBC's pundits--should have grabbed KeithOlbermann.com through a domain registrar a long time ago. Nowadays, domain registration isn't that expensive, and given how much Olbermann is paid by MSNBC, registering that domain years ago would have essentially been pocket change to him.

Olbermann has been on TV since the late 80s and became an ESPN anchor in the early 90s. So he has been a public name for quite some time now, back before the days when public figures automatically thought to register personal domains.

My guess would be that someone cyber-squatted this domain name a long time ago, probably as soon as he gained any sort of fame whatsoever. That was very, very common. Olbermann probably decided he didn't care enough (or at all) to pay whomever thousands of dollars for the rights and ignored them.

I think Chris Matthews is the best known of the MSNBC pundits.

I wonder, if I asked nicely, if Tucker would let me have the email address, [email protected] ?

I don't know, but if you go to TuckerCarlson.net, you can enter Salon.com's contest to win one of 25 TuckerCarlson.net e-mail addresses. They're picking the winners today, though, so you'd better hurry.

Re: Tucker Carlson Buys KeithOlbermann.com

Hasnt there been court cases that say you cant register a famous persons name and profit from it? I wouldnt piss on Olbermann if he was on fire but I think he may have some legal recourse here. Of course my legal advice isnt worth 10 cents......

The only thing I know about this Olbermann guy is that he sucks at football commentating.

A former-bowtie wearing hack whose career is on a downward spiral attacking someone to hope for relevance again?

I seem to recall a former sportscaster hack whose career was on a downward spiral attacking Bill O'Reilly to hope for relevance again.

Re: Tucker Carlson Buys KeithOlbermann.com

Yeah, except Olbermann has a show and is paid millions and Carlson does spots on the Bubba the Love Sponge radio show. Whose career is on a downward spiral? I'm surprised that Carlson isn't a heroin addict by now.

A former bowtie wearing hack who has about the twice the intelligence (and a hell of a lot more knowledge of politics) that Olbermann has.

because if they share the same ideology, an attack on the talking head is an attack on them.

I could give a fuck about Keith Olbermann.

My comments were pointed at Tucker Carlson. I love how people construct these elaborate connections in their minds.

An opinion of a conservative. Of course a conservative would sound more together on politics to another conservative.
