Little wonder that liberals hate Ann Coulter...she plays chess with them and has them checkmated before they make their first move. 

In November of 2004, Coulter reminded MSNBC’s Keith “I’m Allergic to the Pillows” Olbermann of his stupidity by observing that, “...I guess we can add ‘math’ to Keith's growing ‘I Don't Do’ file, along with ‘Reading the Congressional Almanac,’ ‘Basic Show Prep,’ ‘Getting My Attitude in Line With My IQ’ ....” 

An update to this short-list of Olbermannn’s “I Don’t Do” file should also include “I’ve Never Read the Constitution” and “I Really Don’t Have Much Basic Knowledge” fact, “I Have the IQ of a Carrot”. 

Ever since the MSM numbskulls started raising the prospect of President Bush’s intention to keep “...Vice President Cheney for the rest of his term”, Olbermann (along with the bulk of the MSM’s intelligentsia) has been raising the specter that “Could anybody be saying to (the President)...get rid of ...(Cheney)...?” 

Chances are that, if you are reading this, you already know what I’m about to write, but for the benefit of some liberal lurkers...READ THE CONSITUTION! 

Right there in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution, it is clearly and simply witten that, “The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice-President chosen for the same Term, be elected....” 

Just in case Olbermann, and his fellow members of the psychedelia, missed the point...the Vice Presidency is not: (1) a Cabinet level nomination; (2) a Diplomatic appointment or (3) a finalist spot on Dancing with the Stars.  It is an ELECTED office in the Executive Branch of the Constitutional Government. 

Now...that wasn’t very hard to understand. 

To the next point...just like impeached former federal judge (and rumored “next chairman of the House of Representative's Intelligence Committee”), Alcee Hastings, the Vice President can only be removed from office by: (1) premature death; (2) resignation; (3) “Inability to discharge the Powers and Duties of the said Office” or (4) “Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors” (What blue dress?). 

When Olbermann quizzed Thomas DeFrank of The New York Daily News about the Vice President’s future, DeFrank shot back “Let’s face it, the vice president is an elected official.  The notion of easing him out of a constitutionally mandated office to which he was elected is a little far-fetched....” 

Of course, one could always take Terence Hunt’s backup position, “While Cheney was re-elected with Bush for four years...As a practical matter, Bush could ask the vice president to leave if he wanted.” 

“As a practical matter”, I could ask Olbermann to hold Nancy Pelosi’s hand and jump off a cliff. And speaking of Pelosi...I could ask the liberals to set aside the election results and intern themselves at GITMO for the good of the country. 

But what does that have to do with the Constitution?  At the very least...what does it have to do with an eyedropper full of common sense? 

Pulling nonsense out of thin air and trying to create reality is the mad science of liberalism.  Or, as Coulter already observed in Godless: The Church of Liberalism, “Liberals use the word science exactly as they use the word Constitutional. Both words are nothing more or less than a general statement of liberal approval, having nothing to do with either science or the Constitution.” do have to admire liberals’ love of alchemy. 

Olbermann, who spent his first 18 years after graduating college as a sportscaster, started tackling political news only 9 years ago.  But I guess his degree in communications arts from Cornell’s Agriculture school more than amply qualifies him for his brand of Constitutional BS.  And if you find him a bit superficial at times, Olbermann explains that “A head injury in 1980 keeps me from having any depth perception....”  Now you’ve said it...haven’t you. 

When I sit and listen to the tripe served-up by Olbermann, I can’t help but to wonder what the Constitution would read like had our Founding Fathers been replaced by Olbermann et al.   

In keeping with a lack of depth and a 30 second attention span: 

We the self-styled elitists of the United States, in order to form a more perfect playground, establish unaccountability, insure domestic chaos, provide for the common mediocrity, promote the general welfare state, and secure the blessings of liberty exclusively to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Diverse States of America. 

Since we will call the shots on a play-by-play basis, go out and have fun until we tell you to stop.  We make the rules and change them at our pleasure.
