Department of Book Reports: Pitchforks and Torches

In a week where we saw justice, light, right and might prevail in our land, it was only fitting that MSNBC suspended the ultra-liberal, Keith Olbermann from his show, Countdown, on Friday. Of course, the islamoliberalsphere is protesting by calling the MSNBC offices, and setting up Facebook pages in protest. What more could we expect. They want you to call MSNBC at (212) 664-4444 and urge them to bring Keith Olbermann back!

SEND faxes to MSNBC urging Keith's return here at: Fax: (212) 664-4426

You can e-mail Phil Griffin who suspended Keith at:

It turns out, that the nattily-dressed one has just published a book, Pitchforks and Torches. Conveniently, the book is a Liberal's wet dream, full of invective and reason. As Seattle Tammy and I would never want to be accused of censoring, we are stocking that book, as well as others by this Olbermann fella.

If we have inadvertently made you look at these protests and caused you to join the brouhaha, we are deeply sorry. But the books are available at Jackson Street Books and other fine Independent bookstores.As always, books ordered here will have a freebie publishers Advance Reading Copy included as a thank you to our blogosphere friends.


  1. Aha ! So this is all a clever ploy to sell books ! well done, Keith !

    When and where was it that Keith and his mom were at a baseball game, and his mother was hit by a foul ball ? They were on the first base line, (that's the Right field side, for those who don't speak baseball, and they do NOT belong on the Right, so it was an Omen).

    I heart Dan and Tammy.

  2. Hey - Our Supremes say that cash for candidates is an exercise of our First Amendment Free Speech right. How can a contract or a company policy require anyone to get permission to exercise free speech rights? Sounds unenforceable to me.

    But then again, I'm just an American on the hippie side of the fence. Where's commenter DVE? Dude, chime in if you are out there!

  3. Here's Keith's tribute to his Mom, Nomi... Get the kleenex ready!

  4. Tammy, any chance you could post that on my facebook profile ? The link doesn't work here...

    If not, i'll track it down, please don't tell me she has died since that incident.

    Incidentally, Grace Paley's companion of many years, Bob Nichols died about 2 weeks ago. I think there was a memorial for him in Vermont today...

  5. Sarah, oh Sarah, an awesome tiara
    Goes 'round and around on her head
    O'Reilly and Limbaugh are two for the seesaw
    Soon to be grunting in bed

    Glenn Beck is a monkey, an audacious flunky
    Shilling gold to the medicare crowd
    Just like Moroni, he's full of baloney
    And Lord, he's exceedingly loud

    But dear Mr. Keith, with an honest man's teeth
    Will no longer chew on the news
    Did he pull a boner, this liberal donor
    Or was that a convenient ruse?

    I trust that our masters will give us disasters
    Explosions and gossip TV
    It can make one quite sour, when truth faces power
    All we're offered is weak tasting tea
    All we're offered is weak tasting tea

  6. This was such a great post! I loved the satire!


  7. Sorry, I'm so late in piling on. I've been working non-stop on the FINAL re-write of my cookbook, "Al Fresco Dining With The Donners--The Other White Meat" (apparently the photos for the chapter, "The right way to "bone" a republican" were not the ones that I had selected but some others that were put in there by some pornoprankster!).

    Anyhoo, IF Olbermanskidorfsteinberg wants to donate to political candidates he SHOULD quit his job at Mostly Socialist NBC and join the REAL MerKKKin Patriot Journalists at FOX!!


We'll try dumping haloscan and see how it works.
