Bring Me the Disco King – And Glenn Beck!

Bowie olbermann

UPDATE:  Olbermann writes “Never Mind“.

Did you ever hear this fairly obscure song by David Bowie? It’s  called “Bring Me the Disco King”:

The song’s refrain go something like this:

Feed me no lies
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Breathe through the years
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Bring me the disco king
I don’t know about you, I don’t know about you
Dead or alive, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king, bring me the disco king
Bring me the disco king

Here’s a similar refrain, posted by Keith Olbermann in his Daily Kos diary, entitled “Send Me Everything You Can Find About Glenn Beck

I don’t know why I’ve got this phrasing in my head, but: Find everything you can about Glenn Beck,  Stu Burguiere, and Roger Ailes. No, even now, I refuse to go all caps.No, sending me links to the last two Countdowns with my own de-constructions of his biblical vision quality Communist/Fascist/Socialist/Zimbalist art at Rockefeller Center (where, curiously, he works, Comrade) doesn’t count. Nor does sending me links to  specious inappropriate point-underscoring prove-you’re-innocent made-up rumors.

I keep wondering if somewhere somebody named Ollie Garhey thinks he’s in charge now. Or, even more entertainingly and societally satisfying, if somebody named Ali Garhi does. Despite the worn-out snark above, I am in earnest here.

Bring me the Disco King, Bring Me the Disco King

I Don’t know about you, I Don’t Know about you

Dead or Alive, bring me the Disco King, Bring Me the Disco King

Bring Me the Disco King

I may have accidentally transcribed the last few lines of the Olbermann quote poorly, and if I did, apologies. But I give Keith credit. While most of the commentariat is angered by the rabid tactics of the Glenn Beck audience over Van Jones’s firing, Keith Olbermann is tearing the hinges off of the left door as well. If you don’t think so, check out some of the 1400+ comments in his DK diary.
