The Pulp was checking out MSNBC last night to see what the liberals were up to when Rachel Maddow began a segment on Gov. Rick Scott's trip to the Koch brothers retreat in Colorado that seemed awfully similar to a story we wrote earlier in the day.

Lo and behold, that was because she actually used our post in her segment on the conference the Koch brothers have been hosting in Colorado.

"After days of wondering what the heck was going on with their disappearing governor, today, Florida residents and those Florida political reporters finally got some answers," Maddow said. "Turns out, Rick Scott -- the new Republican governor of Florida -- was at a secret, invitation-only retreat outside of Vail, Colorado, put on by the billionaire Koch brothers."

Maddow noted, as did we, that Scott's public schedule displayed nothing planned for the weekend -- which has not happened since he took office -- while his spokesman refused to confirm that Scott was with the Koch brothers.

"After declaring a state of emergency in Florida due to wildfires, Gov. Rick Scott hopped on a plane, he went to Colorado, he addressed this secret Koch brothers retreat, and apparently hoped that nobody back home would notice," Maddow said. "Unfortunately for Gov. Scott, they did notice."

Aside from Scott, last night's piece went into four other politicians who made it out to the Koch conference, as well as how the Koch brothers run the bankroll for Republican candidates at election time.

Seriously? Pot, meet kettle. Kettle, meet pot. You guys are the WORST offenders of just re-writing and stealing stories from pretty much every Florida newspaper. AND the biggest offender is you, Matthew!

It's kind of ironic that you have the audacity to call out large news agencies over stealing your stories, when you do it every. single. day. in pretty much every. single. thing. you. write.

Congrats, Matt. You have done a fantastic job since joining The Juice. Kudos to Eric Barton as well, who was a workhorse during the transition phase.

The Koch brothers KILLED Danielle Dawn Smalley and her boyfriend, a jury found in a US court, and awarded the Smalley familly $293,000,000.00 judgement against the KILLER KOCH BROTHERS.

 

A Federal court found that the Koch Brothers stole oil from Indian lands "literally million of times" and fined them over $1,000,000.

 

Koch Brothers paid $30,000,000 CRIMINAL FINE for polluting land, water and air in six states, Plus another $5,000,000 in civil penalties. Add another $20,000,000 CRIMINAL FINE for losing a hundred tons of toxic cancer causing benzene in and around the bodies of the people of Corpus Christi, Texas.

 

Koch Brothers network of propaganda factories aided and abetted the R.I.C.O. FELONY FRAUD Tobacco Mafia to kill 400,000 Americans per year. Rupert Murdoch was director of the Koch Cato Institute, along with a vice president of Philip Morris Tobacco Company during the exact years that a federal court convicted Philip Morris of committing felony fraud and racketeering. The Racketeer Murdoch was directing Philip Morris at the time to place $75,000,000 ads per year in his TV guide product so kids could get attracted while looking up the schedule for Barney the Dinosaur. The Racketeers Koch provided luxury employment for Tobacco Mafia OPERATION WHITECOAT fraudsters, and laundered tobacco payoff money to science frauds.

 

Tell me again how many convictions and CRIMINAL fines Soros has?

Keith Olbermann is a blithering buffoon. Had the story appeared on his ( former) show, I would have thought WTF cares? But Maddow's show is tight. She's smart, sophisticated, suave and sassy. The show is incredibly well researched and produced. So kudos to you!

When the bar is so low, as it is when you post a comment, you rarely disappoint. If you ever have something intelligent and well reasoned to offer, I may fall out of my seat.

Is Looney Left your code word for those of us who graduated from college?

Olbermann may be a lot of things, but a buffoon is not one of them. The guy is brilliant, a graduate of Cornell.

Sarah Palin? That is a buffoon.

Olbermann IS a Buffoon , Virgil. Just cuz you don't see it, doesn't mean that it ain't true!

Cantankerous, obnoxious, arrogant, condescending....yes. However, in order to qualify as a buffoon, one would have to be considered a little dull, which Keith clearly is not.

He passes factcheck almost always and rarely--if ever--misrepresents the facts.
