Lawrence O’Donnell Is a Moron

In Economics, Glenn Beck, Kieth Olberman, MSNBC, Politics on November 11, 2010 at 5:00 AM

Recently MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell admitted in no uncertain terms that he was a socialist, not merely a liberal.  He went on to mock liberals as generally weak and afraid to admit their beliefs, even going so far as to change their name to progressives for cover.

Enter Glenn Beck and the internet.  Beck and multiple online sources played the exchange between O’Donnell and other panelists on the MSNBC show Morning Joe

O’Donnell apparently felt compelled to respond to Beck’s criticism and on Tuesday’s broadcast of his show, The Last Word.  In what I think is a stunning display of colossal ignorance and stupidity, O’Donnell claimed that we are all socialists, that he advocates only the “good kind” of socialism and then went on to describe “good socialism” with the following:

“What I’ve been trying to do by saying it is make people understand what socialism is, and that every taxpayer in this country, every social security recipient, every medicare beneficiary, and everyone who uses the post office is participating in successful socialism, practical socialism every day.”

Allow me to analyze this incredible display of intellectual prowess (sarcasm intended).

Practical and successful socialism as described here is illustrated by 3 specific examples, Social Security, Medicare, and The US Postal Service. 

But the super genius Lawrence O’Donnell apparently is unaware that all  his examples of “successful” socialism are either routinely in deficit, or face eventual total insolvency. 

The US Postal Service alone has a projected deficit  of over $238 BILLION over the next 10 years.  When you add the projected shortfalls in Medicare and Social Security you get a total deficit in these success stories of just about $30 TRILLION dollars.  (That’s just a bit more than double the total national debt, and just about half of the GDP of the entire planet.)

So thanks Lawrence for pointing out that we are all “participating” in such a colossal and magnificent success story for the ages.  You are totally spot on.  There is “good socialism” that works perfectly and will last forever, as your examples clearly demonstrate. 

As long as you are dead by the time the bills come due, that is.

Lawrence O’Donnell is a wonderful example for all of us to examine.  Remember that he uses 3 dollar words all the time and graduated from Harvard.  That is proof that he is so much smarter than the rest of us, right?

The truth is he is a total moron with a degree from a university that now churns out one highly esteemed idiot after another (POTUS?). 

Harvard is to education and intelligence what MSNBC is to news.

And I thought Olberman and Maddow were stupid.
