Olbermann better suited for ESPN

    The guy is just plain grating as a news commentator. Tries so hard to be the witty, left-wing commentator, but he comes across about 95% bitter and 5% sincere. He's light years behind Maher, Stewart and Colbert.

    Yeah, I know he's getting paid a bundle by MSNBC, but Peter Principle swallowed him up when he left ESPN.

    Did you just discover this now? Have you been living in a cave all these years?

    I don't know. I keep hearing bashing of the likes of Hannity, and he's been on TV and radio for what, 15 or 20 years?

    I think Olberman goes too far sometimes and, when he does, he hurts his own cause because he can be grouped as the left's Beck, O'Reilly or Hannity. Yet most of the time he is not only of the left, but also clever, insightful and thoughtful. And, he was the first voice like that among the pundit ilk. He's been an aggressive voice of the left when the left really needed one. Believe me. Olberman is right where he sould be.

    Bill O'Reilly better suited for 'Inside Edition.'

    Glenn Beck better suited for local radio.

    (political views that oppose my own) better suited for (some lesser media outlet.)

    I always thought Lyndon Larouche was better suited for prison.

    A shot and a beer for anyone who can post a pic of Olbermann in his ESPN Deuce eight-ball leather jacket.

    I find Olbermann and O'Reilly highly entertaining.

    Sean does his job, ginning up the base, working the back 40. Frequently ignores basic facts to do it,
    but consider the source.

    Glenn Beck already essentially blew up one local radio station.

    Connecticut will be very happy never to see the tears-on-cue bitch, again.

    One of the best meltdowns ever.
