Inhaltsangabe: An irresistible new collection from the New York Times bestselling author and host of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann

In his particular wit and style, Keith Olbermann skewers politicians, celebrities, and people behaving badly every weeknight on MSNBC's increasingly popular Countdown with Keith Olbermann. This book starts right after President Obama's election and collects all of Olbermann's acclaimed ""Special Comments,"" a few of his ""Quick Comments,"" all but one of his feature ""WTF,"" selections of ""Bushed"" and ""Still Bushed,"" and, of course, a healthy dose of ""The Worst Person in the World.""

  • Covers everything from gay marriage to Sarah Palin and the Bush legacy?plus Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and, of course, Bill-O
  • Olbermann is a frequent poster to the popular website DailyKos, where his audience has shown itself as fervid and highly supportive
  • New from the New York Times bestselling author of The Worst Person of the World and Truth and Consequences

Showcasing Olbermann at his most controversial, outspoken, and entertaining, Pitchforks and Torches cuts to the truth in a world of lies.


Ever since MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann debuted in 2003, Olbermann has made it clear that he is not one to shy away from a controversy or back down from a fight. In fact, he has gone out of his way to become a thorn in the side of pundits, politicians, and apologists, exposing their venality, manipulation, and flat-out lies for what they are. From the national disaster that was the Bush administration to agents of the Fox News propaganda machine to the tin foil–hat crowd that calls itself the Tea Party—all have felt the sting of Olbermann's bitter indictments, biting satire, and blistering mockery.

In Pitchforks and Torches, Olbermann presents a powerful selection of his most potent barrages from the days immediately following the 2008 election through the first year of the Obama administration. He is alternately passionate, furious, and humorously nonplussed as he responds to the right wing's increasingly disloyal and nutty opposition to virtually all of the president's programs and the emergence of congressional Republicans as the "Party of No."

Whether sticking it to such usual suspects as Bill O'Reilly, Boss Limbaugh, and Glenn "Lonesome Rhodes" Beck as "The Worst Person in the World"; tracking W's calamitous legacy in the "Worst of Bush"; or getting down to the nitty-gritty of major issues in his influential "Special Comments" and "Quick Comments," Olbermann articulates and energizes progressive positions on the great issues of our time as no one else can. Discover what Keith Olbermann has to say about:

  • President Bush's use and defense of the torture of terrorism suspects

  • The birther movement

  • Sarah Palin's death-panel fantasies

  • Republican attempts to rename the Democratic Party

  • Michael Steele's bizarre stewardship of the Republican Party

  • The Blue Dog Democrats who scuttled real health care reform

  • And much more

Complete with cogent critiques of President Obama's health care strategy as well as his decision to send additional troops to Afghanistan, Pitchforks and Torches is welcome reading for Countdown lovers, Olbermann fans, and anyone who enjoys a good dose of reality with their politics.
