Countdown with Keith Olbermann With Shannyn Moore


  1. Can’t wait, Shannyn! I’ll be watching!

  2. That is great news, anxiously awaiting to see the show. And tomorrow off she goes to Pittsburgh!
    I look forward to meeting you and AKM in person, Shannyn.

  3. Ill be watchin….hey I saw a sign that said this at one of the rallies yesterday in Anchorage.
    “It’s we the people, not we the Government” are people really that stupid? We the people are indeed the Government……it is the founding principle of a Democracy. WOW
    The people yelling the loudest are the ones who elected the likes of GW Bush and Sarah Palin. Tea Parties, yelling at rallies, saying there will be Obama death squads and that a 74 year old with cancer will not get care so they will die….again are people really that stupid?
    Yet another great thing I heard was this, “get the government out of my medicaid” HUH? medicaid is a government run health care system LOL wow! ok I will degress now.

  4. Oh and in case a Tea Partier or birther is reading this I will define a democracy for you all.
    DEMOCRACY “government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.”

  5. Great Job Shannyn…definitely a “must see” for all thinking people…the rest still won’t get it!!

  6. Good luck tonight. He was pretty scathing last night- so much so it might have left SP speechless for once. Good luck in PB.

  7. Great job Shannyn on KO today! Love the new hairdo, you look gorgeous. $carah is so jealous. Beautiful AND intelligent – go figure. 🙂

    Have a wonderful time at Netroots – as if you couldn’t. Give AKM my best too and all the mudpups. I’m so jealous. Can’t wait for your reports about the happenings.

  8. Great job, Shannyn!!! Excellent work!

    Hope you and AKM have a safe, wonderful trip!

  9. Wonderful – amazing … every adjective I can think of. It’s time the story of the senior deaths in Alaska due to Palin neglect made the MSM – It was well researched and you guys stuck to the facts.

    Congratulations – seems like it’s the only way to get the Alaska Truths to the MSM is through KeithO and Rachel.

    Great job –

  10. Outstanding, as usual Shannyn. You & Keith seriously get the word out while the rest of the media ignores something so HORRIFIC as all those innocents dying due to $arah’s incompetence. Choosing unqualified heads of depts or letting qualified people quit because they don’t follow her religious convictions. Psycho!

    The Youtube is already up, if anyone hasn’t yet seen it:

  11. As usual, you were outstanding on KO! Great job Shannyn. Have a great trip and make sure you and AKM keep all of us posted!

  12. Shannyn, I hope I didn’t step on any toes. Thought I was just entering the weblink, and the whole Youtube itself popped in there.

    Have a fantastic time @ Netroots & PB, you & AKM are just going to have such FUN!

  13. A random thought just occurred to me.

    (Imagine that.)

    Was Palin this off-the-wall-crazy prior to getting elected to Governor in the first place? Honestly, for most of us outside Alaska, we first became aware of her last summer and cannot conceive that with her bizarre rhetoric she could get elected by rational people in the first place.

    I can’t help but think she didn’t reveal this amount of crazy until after getting elected myself. (Or at least that’s my hope.)

  14. Nice appearance on Countdown tonight. I had not heard of “Palinistas” before?

    How long ago was the SeniorCare so bad that the Federal government had to intervene?

    JULY 27 of this year.

  15. Really nice job- the best line to die for (no pun intended) was where you replied to Kieth’s question regarding guilt- saying “Sarah Palin doesn’t register guilt”- I kinda thought you were going to say it- but hearing it- was the icing.

  16. I like your hair too…the color looks great! I especially like the way you addressed the lack of guilt in palin…good points made.
    Have a safe, fun trip…represent!

  17. teabaggers… sheesh, whatabunchamorons… debated a few of them clueless types in Lep’nen pennsyltucky today.

    Shannyn is da bomb.

    And guess what… while Shannyn has established her bona fides, Sarah Palin is… well… where is she except on the political road to nowhere (aka obscurity)?

  18. Nice Job, Hannah said “That’s Shannyn on TV!” She was so excited! This health care cr$# is driving me crazy. Gov doesn’t kill babies, they offer a Medicare program to help with medical bills so we don’t go broke. Reminds me of the coffee cup that says “Stupid people shouln’t breed.”
    Have a safe trip.

  19. Shannyn Moore, you have won me over. Great work deserves credit and national television is a good sign. Stay true and keep on rolling.

  20. You rock!!! Love what you are doing!! It is so nice to have a voice of reason among the nutjobs. Keep it up!!

  21. Great Job! I too LOVE your hair!

    As someone who is going in for a cut today. Im hoping I can come out looking half that good!

    That aside I love the points that are being made on KO. Glad to “know” you!

  22. I’ve always known that Alaska has more than its share of beauty and greatness, but right up there at the top of the list with the best Alaska has to offer is you, Ms. Shannyn Moore. Your poise, your strength, your wit, your intelligence, and your choice to speak for the good of the state and its people…You are jus’ amazin’! Have fun in PA!

  23. Sarah Palin “Facebooks”; Shannyn Moore is on live t.v., holding an adult conversation in real time with a real interviewer.

    Hmmm….No comparison here regarding who the accomplished, educated, intelligent, well-spoken woman is.

    I smile to wonder where Shannyn will be in a year, five years, ten years….”we all knew her when…”

  24. palin has posted a response to the alaska healthcare issue.

    Is it correct in its claims?

    Who wrote it?

  25. Bravo, Shannyn!

  26. You did an excellent job. Her hair looks great too.

  27. Let us start with Good Friday 1964. I do not have to total figure in dollars that was spent putting Alaska back together after that tragic event, but I am positive it was a staggering sum, all brought forth by the Federal Government.

    Are not a third of jobs in the state somehow related to federal funding? Highways and the military and health care and schools. How do you decide which federal funding was good and which is not?

    Another fact from is this. Alaska is #1 in stimulus funds per capita at $1.41 per citizen, and as of Monday with the veto override that sum has risen since that figure was released.

    “Cora Hoff from Big Lake said she was protesting in part because she was worried about the building codes, but also because she has a problem with federal spending.
    She did not like handouts, food stamps and welfare and free health insurance for pregnant women who don’t work. The government should stay out of people’s lives and leave states alone and teach personal responsibility, she said.” from ADN 8/12 Yet I bet she cashes every PFD check she has ever received come November as well as the $1200.00 energy rebate check she received in 2008.

    Bob Lynn said in the Egan center before the vote on taking the stimulus monies that the Federal Government needs to stay out of Alaska’s business. Mr Lynn is a Vet, I am sure he fought for the USA to support our Federal Government. He is also a retired Air Force fighter pilot, thus receives a check from the evil Federal Government every month as well as free health care. Just a Tad hypocritical there Bob!

    I heard other Legislators advocating ignoring or asking that the Federal Government stay out of Alaska. This secessionist talk scares me being an Alaskan who’s job depends on Federal Funds coming into Alaska to subsidize our Ferry System.

    For all who voted yes to over ride the veto of the stimulus money to improve living conditions for Alaskans I applaud you. For those who feel the Federal Government has no role in Alaska I say this. Without the Federal Government monies flowing into Alaska, Alaska would be faced with taxing the citizens of Alaska greatly to fund such things as Ferries, The Alaska Rail Road, and many other infrastructures that Federal Dollars fix.
    As well I want remind all who say the Federal Government money is somehow bad for Alaska that we have many Federal Military Bases in Alaska as well as Missile Defense systems that are totally funded by the Federal Government. I might also remind those people that every thirds person in Alaska who’s income is derived from Federal Funds VOTE!

    The Federal Government Employs more people in Alaska than the State of Alaska employs. This is a fact that should not be over looked bu those citizens in Alaska who speak out so loudly against our Federal Government.

    As for the United States National Debt I would like to remind those who are speaking out so loudly on that issue and blaming the current Administration for that deficit that in 2000 when GW Bush took the oath of office, that we had a budget surplus, were paying down the National Debt for the first time in over 200 years, and that it only took 8 years of a Republican controlled House and Senate to rack up a 1.3 TRILLION dollar deficit. Those are facts not fiction.

  28. Shannyn – could you please respond to Sarah Palin’s facebook entry from last night (9:37PM)?

    Palin definitely has new writers to help her out and I bet from the publishing firm.

    Also I loved your comments on Countdown the other night.

    • Erika,

      I don’t know if this helps, but I found this from the Anchorage Daily News:

      “The situation is so bad the federal government has forbidden the state to sign up new people until the state makes necessary improvements.

      “No other state in the nation is under such a moratorium, according to a spokeswoman for the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

      “In the meantime, frail and vulnerable Alaskans who desperately need the help are struggling. One elderly woman is stuck in a nursing home, for lack of care at home. Another woman, suffering from chronic pain and fatigue, said she’s so weak, she often can’t even pop dinner into the microwave.

      “The moratorium is expected to last four or five months. State officials estimate about 1,000 Alaskans will be affected.

      “A particularly alarming finding concerns deaths of adults in the programs. In one 2 1/2 year stretch, 227 adults already getting services died while waiting for a nurse to reassess their needs. Another 27 died waiting for their initial assessment, to see if they qualified for help.

      “The programs at issue provide in-home help for thousands of Alaskans with the basics of life, from medication to meals. The goal is to help people stay in their own homes rather than go into nursing homes or other institutions. ”


      Here is the link:

  29. I sent this to Keith – wonder if it’ll be mentionned :

    We can no longer afford to let the obstructionists prevent the health care/health insurance reform this country so desperately needs!

    Please sign this petition to have paid health care removed from our representatives in Congress until such time as they reform health care – to include a strong public option – for ‘we the people’ who they are supposed to represent. Then spread the word to anyone and everyone you know!

  30. Palin in my humble opinion is nothing short of
    a National & Global disgrace. She reflects the
    worst of US Society. A self serving individual
    that heards the sheep with lies and untruths.

    Its hard to believe that the american people are
    so easily duped by this type of individual.

    But as I said heard the sheep “Baaaaaaaaaa” and
    your sure to have enough money to live on. Her
    end game is the money. The sheep “Her base” are
    nothing more than a means to that end.

    You bet Ya !

  31. wmholt, Thank you very much , yes the ADN information you provided definitely shines a different light on the topic. It is so apparent that Sarah Palin has now employed a well educated writer to submit entries on her facebook notes section.

    I find it ironic, that no matter how well educated or intelligent a person maybe when attempting to articulate a credible position, if the position is flawed to begin with (such as in Palin’s care) it will render any opinion non-nonsensical.

    I find Palin’s facebook entry sanctimoniousness, at best after considering the facts of the countless deaths and AK was the ONLY state the fed issues a moratorium.

    Shame on Sarah Palin, where is her decency.

  32. trying to find info on the emails that the UT kid got from Palin’s yahoo acct and found this from the WJS online

    Don Young’s Way
    Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport and other Alaskan money pits.

    Tuesday, February 7, 2006 12:01 A.M. EST
    ….Fine rhetoric, but if something drastic isn’t done, earmarks will largely survive the calls for reform. Alaska’s Sen. Ted Stevens, who has spent 37 years in Congress raiding the federal Treasury on behalf of his state, dismisses the notion that anything should threaten Alaska’s status as the No. 1 state for pork. In 2005, it hauled in $984.85 worth of pork for every resident.

    Last week Mr. Stevens went so far as to chide Capitol Hill reporters for even listening to earmark critics such as Sens. John McCain and Tom Coburn. “You guys fall for it and give them publicity,” he said, and no one can doubt his authority. If anyone knows about publicity, it’s the man who gave his name to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.

    “What needs fixing is to have the public understand what we do when we earmark bills,” Mr. Stevens lectured the reporters. In this view, earmarks are just worthwhile projects for the folks back home. That view might have been defensible when earmarks were limited to the occasional project that the White House or congressional leaders allowed into a bill as “lubrication” of the legislative process to secure a key committee chairman’s vote. But earmarks have multiplied. When President Reagan vetoed a highway bill in 1987, he complained that it contained a then-unprecedented 152 earmarks. Last year’s highway bill alone contained 6,371 earmarks, or 42 times as many.

    Earmarks represent a looming political disaster for the GOP. Last year Congress authorized a record 13,999 earmarks….If just 1% of the earmarks turn out to be embarrassing, that’s 140 stories. If a mere 0.1% turn out to be legally questionable, that’s 14 front-page exposés between now and the November election….

    Consider the controversy that just the Alaska congressional delegation has managed to stir up with the intricate web of ties between its earmarks and various relatives of the members.

    Sen. Stevens has clearly educated family members on the usefulness of earmarks. Bill Bittner, his brother-in-law, is a Washington lobbyist who has hauled in dozens of earmarks for his clients. “His client list reads like a Who’s Who of Alaska’s most important economic interests,” the Los Angeles Times concluded in 2003. “So what the senator has done for the good of Alaska sometimes also has been good for his brother-in-law’s business.”

    Mr. Bittner also has close ties with Gov. Frank Murkowski, who was Mr. Stevens’s colleague in the Senate until 2002. Gov. Murkowski has arranged for the state of Alaska to spend $900 a month renting an apartment in Anchorage for his use while he is there on state business. The apartment happens to be owned by Mr. Bittner. The governor insists the arrangement came about through mere chance.

    But Mr. Stevens has competition for unusual connections between earmarks and family members from his colleague Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Gov. Murkowski’s daughter, who won a full term in 2004 after he appointed her to replace him. Among the 6,342 earmarks in last year’s transportation bill was one pushed by both Alaska senators for $223 million to build the infamous “bridge to nowhere,” a span that will unite Ketchikan, Alaska, with its local airport on nearby Gravina Island (with a population of 50 residents).

    In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, the much-ridiculed earmark was removed from the transportation bill, although Alaska was allowed to keep the broader pot of money to spend as it saw fit. Gov. Murkowski promptly decided to build the bridge anyway, proposing a down payment of $91 million–the most he could provide under federal-state spending formulas.

    Before her father stepped in to ensure the bridge would be built, Sen. Murkowski lamented it was “very difficult to stand here as an Alaskan and not take this [criticism] personally.” Indeed, the issue was personal in a sense. It turns out the senator’s mother, Nancy, who is also the governor’s wife, is co-owner with her three siblings of a 35-acre parcel of land on Gravina Island. Critics charge that the bridge will spur development, increasing the value of the Murkowski property, which is one of the few privately held plots on the island.

    The Murkowski family has taken umbrage at any suggestion of impropriety. Sen. Murkowski called her family’s undeveloped Gravina parcel “a worthless piece of property.” Her mother wrote the Anchorage Daily News that “we have tried to sell it a number of times but found no willing buyers. . . . As far as access to the Ketchikan Airport, forget it. It’s on the wrong end of the island.” But in reality, her plot is valued by local officials at $245,000 and is within three-fourths of a mile of the proposed bridge’s western end. A local realtor told me the land would substantially increase in value if the bridge was built.

    Another beneficiary of Governor Murkowski’s decision to plow the state’s share of federal transportation dollars into bridges is a controversial $223 million span near Anchorage that would connect that city with a nearly deserted port. The bridge will be called Don Young’s Way after Alaska’s lone House member, who also serves as chairman of the House Transportation Committee.

    It could be Don Young’s way in more senses than that. The Anchorage Daily News reports that Art Nelson, Mr. Young’s son-in-law, is part owner of 60 acres of what he described as “beautiful property” on land that will be opened up to development by the bridge.

    “A bridge would change everything,” reported the Daily News. “Don Young’s Way would . . . make the land much more valuable.” Mr. Nelson, told the paper he did discuss his partial acquisition of the 60 acres with Mr. Young. One of the other owners of the land is fisheries lobbyist Trevor McCabe, a former legislative director for none other than Sen. Stevens. Until last October, Mr. McCabe was partners with state senator Ben Stevens, the son of Ted Stevens, in a consulting firm called Advance North that represents salmon fishermen who are regulated by the state Board of Fisheries, which is chaired by none other than Mr. Nelson, Rep. Young’s son-in-law.

    If you’re confused, so are Alaskans, who joke that eventually all the relatives of its leading politicians will get bridges for Christmas. Some are urging the state to cut back on pork: “Though enriched by $60 a barrel oil and record levels of federal highway aid, Alaska cannot afford to fulfill the dreams of grandiose politicians and connect every dot on the state map,” the Daily News editorialized last month.

    ….He proposed funding a two-year “long overdue” public relations campaign that would “accurately portray Alaska.” While he didn’t put a price tag on the proposal, odds are that one of Alaska’s members of Congress will be standing by to propose a federal earmark to pay for it.
    They need a new PR campaign, because after Palin, the last one’s in trouble.

  33. Sarah Palin’s “proclamation”, last year!

    WHEREAS, Healthcare Decisions Day is designed to raise public awareness of the need to plan ahead for healthcare decisions, related to end of life care and medical decision-making whenever patients are unable to speak for themselves and to encourage the specific use of advance directives to communicate these important healthcare decisions.

    WHEREAS, in Alaska, Alaska Statute 13.52 provides specifics of advance directives law and offers a model form for patient use.

    WHEREAS, it is estimated that only about 20 percent of people in Alaska have executed an advance directive. Moreover, it is estimated that less than 50 percent of severely or terminally ill patients have an advance directive.

    WHEREAS, it is likely that a significant reason for these low percentages is that there is both a lack of knowledge and considerable confusion in the public about Advance Directives.

    WHEREAS, the Foundation for End of Life Care in Juneau, Alaska, and other organizations throughout the United States have endorsed this event and are committed to educating the public about the importance of discussing healthcare choices and executing advance directives.

    NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sarah Palin, Governor of the state of Alaska, do hereby proclaim April 16, 2008, as:

    Healthcare Decisions Day in Alaska, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.

    Dated: April 16, 2008“HEALTHCARE+DECISIONS+DAY”+palin&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us&client=firefox-a

    • By the way, Newt Gingrich was also for advanced directives just a few weeks ago.

      What’s so funny is that Sarah thought no one could see that page because it was deleted from her web site.

      Welcome to Google cache, Sarah!

      Now that the advance directives are now out of the bill just for political gamesmanship, everything Sarah said in her HealthCare Decision day proclamation just goes down the toilet for the rest of the United States.

      Clearly, she was for Advanced Directives before she was against them. I just don’t know how she kept a straight face while calling these provisions “Death Panels”, when she endorsed the very same concept on April 16, 2008. It takes a special psychology to be a conservative.

      Sarah, how about you quit making stuff up? Oh, and “HealthCare” is two words, not one, as in “Health Care”. Sheesh!

  34. thanks. I always feel better knowing you are keeping on this fraud. thank you so very much

  35. Please, someone, tell us why this story has no legs:

    I thought it would be the K.O, punch, yet she’s still here. Pls explain!?!

  36. You did good Shannyn!!!!! I’m going to use this video on my blog. My readership is mostly elders who need to know where Sarah is on this. She is evil. We can’t risk her with our lives.

  37. Kay is in dire need of GRAMMAR lessons, so we don’t have to pay any attentiion to anything she tries to say…especially if she’s trying to blah, blah, blah about SP.
