Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Keith Olbermann calls it quits

Installment #147, according to Keith, will be his last tirade against the Emperor.  It's worth watching but I have long since tired of his endless optimism that Trump is on the way out.  Au contraire! (How Frenchy of me.)  First of all, the Emperor still has the nuclear card to play and that could lead to anything.  Secondly, removing the Emperor while leaving all of his henchmen in place under Pence, could be even worse.

So I will stick to my guns, pop the corn while I watch things get a lot worse, and promote the secession of California leaving this fucked-up U.S. of Bullshit.  Once that occurs we'll then have to deal with the Terrorist Group called Republicans. Won't that be fun!

P.S.  Maybe MSNBC will get smart and bring Keith back in the time slot after Rachael Maddow.  I typically tune out after her bit but Keith could keep my attention.


They tried to assimilate me. They failed.

Nah, KO is a busted flush. All of that confected anger has ceased to have an impact, the delivery is just yesterday's news.

It was refreshing back in 2005 awhen there was almost nobody on TV saying appropriate things about Bush minor. But now even Scarborough makes a better fist of opposing Trump.

Anger is easy and I'm sure there are other who can dial it up to 11 with more conviction. but real forensic analysis requires a different approach than repetitive splenetic theatrics; Maddow is a different class.

And KO didn't get fired from every company, even when he was really popular, because he's an easy person to work with. Some people are just too much trouble and everybody has Keith's number apparently

keep to the Fen Causeway
