Former MSNBC liberal gabster Keith Olbermann has landed at Al Gore's liberal Current cable television network with the title of "Chief News Officer." Given that title, expect "truths" to be delivered along the lines of the old Pravda. ... Another MSNBC lefty , Chris Matthews, says that Sarah Palin only talks to people who don't read newspapers or watch "serious television broadcasts" -- like his . Serious fiction , perhaps. ... The Congressional Budget Office confirms what Democrats were trying to fob off on Republicans as "reckless partisan rhetoric": ObamaCare is a jobs killer. How many• Try 800,000 . Higher costs, fewer jobs, more government control. Yet again, class, it's a tutorial in what "progressivism" is all about. ... When it was clear that much of the nation was in the throes of a colder and snowier winter, climate cluck-clucksters rationalized it as being "consistent with man-made global warming." But that doesn't even jibe with their own research, which predicted less snow and more rain. Wonder if Al Gore has divested his bumbershoot futures for snowblower futures yet?

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
