MSNBC Demotes Keith Olbermann Monday 08 September 2008 by: David Bauder, The Associated Press

Looks like we're screwed. OR we've got to fight (grassroots' efforts to spread the truth on all issues) that much harder . . . And if it's true that McCain has pulled ahead of Obama in the polls, Americans are incredibly stupid, if by now, they don't realize they've been voting against their own self-interests, etc, etc. Unbelievable . . . The false war on terror psy-op continues to work, I guess. Thank you, Keith for trying to tell the truth. It was no liberal spin. --Betsy

MSNBC Demotes Keith Olbermann

New York - MSNBC said Sunday it is replacing Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as co-anchors of political night coverage with David Gregory, and will use the two newsmen as commentators.

The crickets are chirping...

Jesse Ventura was one of my first political idols early in the decade. I was casually browsing Borders' in Cleveland, and the hard-back first edition of his book "Do I Stand Alone?" was on the $5 shelf. Taking it to the cafe and reading it, I could not put it down, so I purchased it. (The original edition was on sale because it was pre-election2000, and the paperback edition is updated to after the Bush inauguration.) Anyway, 9/11 was what turned me on to current events in general, and although I had put faith in the Bush administration for a little while right after the attacks, my gut skepticism in the honesty of our current government was beginning to surface, though I did not become a Truther in the MIHOP sense until 2005. But three years earlier, Ventura taught me what the Founding Fathers meant in so many instances, and raised so many other important issues in his prose, that I sorely wished that he would run for President, which he never did but doesn't rule out in the future; by the way, I'm awaiting an Amazon delivery of his latest book, "Don't Start the Revolution Without Me."
