Very Tough Guy Lawrence O'Donnell, Who Became A Hardass Fighting Through Vietnam... Imagery on TV, Challenges Son of Presidential Candidate to a Fight on National TV

Video below. Watch it, if you haven't seen this national embarrassment yet.

Remember, he's part of the NBC News division. But he's indulging in Jerry Springer/Morton Downey Jr./Geraldo Rivera talk-show antics. Those guys used to get into brawls, or trash talk like they wanted to brawl, a lot.

NBC News. Now doing this kind of low-rent syndicated talk show crap. NBC News.

Now, about Lawrence O'Donnell. I goofed on this sad old clown last night, noting his completely fake "Tough Boston Kid" accent, which sounded like he got it from a Broadway musical. (And, on that front, the Broadway musical "Miss Saigon" is where all of his Vietnam-era battle experience comes from. The song before the second-act intermission is seared into his memory.)

Lawrence O'Donnell announced that while Tagg Romney might be a privileged child of the suburbs, a talk of fisticuffs never would have been permitted in the "paht of Bahston" he grew up in.

Suggesting he was a real scrapper from Southie.

In fact, per Wikipedia, he was the son of a lawyer. He attended what appears to be a very tony Catholic all-boys school. St. Sebastian's is a Hobbesian pit where young boys quickly learn that they must either fight or die:

The School features a rigorous academic program focusing on the liberal arts and offers Spanish and Classics courses. Writing is emphasized with numerous courses in the English curriculum, with Freshmen (9th grade) students taking a special class to hone their skills. Public speaking is also emphasized, with each student required to deliver an annual speech during his class's weekly chapel meetings.

The student:teacher ratio at St. Sebastian's is 7:1, and 60% of the faculty hold graduate degrees. The average class size is 11. The school offers 20 classes at the Advanced Placement level. Students are all assigned a faculty advisor and at the end of every academic quarter, awards for honors students are presented before the school community.

Classics? That means Lawrence O'Donnell's youth was eked on thin gruel of Latin conjugations.

And... the average class size is 11? That's not a class, that's an arena football squad. Including the punter/kicker.

Charles Dickens just emailed me to say, "Oliver Twist had it easy."

Which paht of Bahston is St. Sebastian's in? It's in Needham, Massachusetts., which is another way of saying it's not a paht of Boston at all. What it is is a tony, tree-filled suburb of Boston. Sort of a distant suburb, actually. The kind of hellhole where some of the cars are three or more years old, and where you find shady businesses with sketchy names like "The Olive Garden, "Dress Barn," and "Anthropology."

It's such a tough place that people sometimes call it "The Brookline of the Outer Bedroom Communities."

The sort of place where a kid growing up only has two options-- Harvard, or a lesser New England private college. Fortunately, Lawrence O'Donnell avoided the hell of a lesser New England private college and got into Harvard. (In an age where it wasn't actually as difficult to get into as it is today, mind you.)

So, that's the "paht of Boston" where Lawrence O'Donnell learned how to scrap. And also, he learned from watching Robert Conrad on TV.

And this sad, aging poltroon is on NBC News challenging people to fights. Well, not people. He's challenging Camera A to a fight, actually. Camera A weighs in at 450 pounds, but then, Lawrence has the better footwork and reach. Since it's just a camera and therefore inanimate.

Lawrence, it's hard to feel physically threatened by a 61 year old wearing make-up and Spanx.

Hey Horde, I'm back. Not sure how many of you are still around from THC,
but this is for y'all. So my day went from 0 to 16,000,000,000,000 with
the simple statement of "oh yeah, I can't cover that meeting for you."
So sorry to duck out on everyone.


So the ensuing discussion
of my infection was absolutely FUCKING HILARIOUS. It was the perfect
example of why I love this site. Thank you for the honest concern and
advice on my well being. I appreciate and enjoy the acceptance I've been
given as part of the Horde and I promise to not trash the place too
much.


Now if you'll excuse me, I gotta go read the comments.

10 rats!

anyway, Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom linked to this example of hard workign bureaucrats earning every dollar they earn, along with the five or ten bucks they get on top of that:

"We were attempting to permit this project as an airport project, not a coal-mining project," said state Sen. Phillip P. Puckett, a Democrat from Lebanon who has been involved for three years with the effort to lengthen the runway from 2,200 feet to more than 5,000 feet — the length needed to comply with insurance standards for corporate jets. The holdup: Federal regulators have refused to allow the runway project to go forward without a mining permit because of the coal deposits below the land that will be dug up during construction.

I mean, *maybe* O'Donnell was a full-scholarship/hardship case from the mean streets, similar to the way MA governor Deval Patrick was plucked from Chicago's South Side to attend Milton Academy here -- but I strongly doubt it.

I think a distinction between Harvard undergrads and Harvard MBA / JD should be made. The undergrads get indoctrinated with liberal pablum. O got his at Columbia. Mitt went to BYU after 30 months in France on mission. BYU undergrad vs Columbia, easy choice.

BTW - i never noticed before but when george romney was running for president, Mitt was on his Mission and was no part of the campaign. I do find that interesting trivia. He was probably not all that affected by his dad's bid in 68.

Wow! What a tough guy! Challenging a Mormon to a fight. What? There were no Amish or Menonites to beat up?
I read somewhere else on the internet tubes that Larry "The Fairy" O'Donnell was the priveledged son of a well known Boston douchebag lawyer. And that Lil' Larry went to private schools before he matriculated to Harvard. Tough neighborhoods. Like Bedford-Stuy in Brooklyn or Cabrini-Green or similar! How did he live through such a rough childhood? Oh yeah, he's a tough guy.And his wife is known as "The Shame of Tazewell County".

---

He got in huge trouble with NBC for doing this kind of shit during his original run with SNL.

One major incident involved him screaming at Henry Kissinger when he called up asking for tickets and another involved him heading to a different stage at 30 Rock to confront Spiro Agnew, a guest on a talk show, then getting flustered when Agnew told him "I wasn't the one who said that, it was Nixon."

101 When I saw this I realized that he can't get any interviews from anyone who isn't on the left and he probably realizes his show is suffering.

He reminded me of O'reilly the other night when he played the clip of my hero, Chri Christie saying he didn't' want to go on his show. O'reilly was pissed, real pissed. I have no idea why Christie won't go but I'm sure it has nothing to do with O'reilly's week long interview with the president when he initially took office.

What's truly hilarious about all this is a)You know that Lawrence O'Donnell truly, deeply believes that he really is a street-smart tough guy who grew up having to be quick with his fists b)that he actually believes that people are going to be impressed by his little one-man off-off-Broadway performance. This is the same guy who admitted publicly that he would never say anything on camera that could be seen as insulting by Muslims because he was terrified that they'd hunt him down and kill him.

NBC news to me is the Bwian Wiwyams feed that comes to my local NBC affiliate at about 6:30 pm weekdays.

That is NBC news.

MSNBC is a whole different story.

Do most people that watch TV get cable? 'Cause if they do they may get MSNBC in a very basic package. I don't know.

But for most people, that nightly news gotten right after the nightly local news, no needing to change channel, is what they watch. And that would be NBC with Ms Wiwyams, and not MSNBC with the disgusting Mr O'Donnell.

2. they like being rich and privileged
3. they wouldn't touch a homeless person with a 10 foot pole, and make damn sure there aren't any in their neighborhoods
4. they are careful to send their children to schools where there are none or very few poor minorities. Their idea of diversity is the light skinned child of a black cardiologist

187 Stage 2: Anger

"Anger is a necessary stage of the healing process. Be willing to feel your anger, even though it may seem endless. The more you truly feel it, the more it will begin to dissipate and the more you will heal. There are many other emotions under the anger and you will get to them in time, but anger is the emotion we are most used to managing. The truth is that anger has no limits. It can extend not only to your friends, the doctors, your family, yourself and your loved one who died, but also to God. You may ask, “Where is God in this?"

According to Scandi lore, it wasn't your widow that was burned with you on a ship. It was a young girl, possibly a virgin, who was chosen (volunteered) to accompany you to Valhalla in the afterlife. The young volunteer was ritualistically gang-raped by the dead Scandi's inner circle of buddies and then strangled to death by the local witch. All this is from Crichton's book "Eaters of The Dead" which was made into "The 13th Warrior" with Antonio Banderas.

226 Growing up in the tough part of some city in whatever state they claim they come from is the equivalent of what politicians would claim 70-100 years ago when they'd talk about being raised in a log cabin.

It's supposed to make them seem tough and mean.

They all do it. Except for the ones who actually did grow up in a tough neighborhood (or a log cabin).

One thing I've found growing older; the more someone tries to convince you of something, the less likely it's true.

Heroes and tough guys are usually very understated. One could say almost meek (but meek has a bad reputation. I like Ann Barnhardt's definition of meek being controlled strength) and gentle.

Until you cross them and they have to do something about you.

266 Larry has a weird appearance, like his head, hair, body, and suit are a single continuous piece of injection-molded albino plastic. Max Headroom, that's it -- he reminds me of Max Headroom. Larry the Hologram is challenging an actual human being to a fight. Whiff. His fist photons pass right through solid matter.

Man he looks fragile.

It's also worth mentioning that, to 90% or more of the country, even a genuine tough guy Boston accent just sounds weird, instead of intimidating. ButLarry's afffectationwasn't even close to real - only applied to certain words, faded in and out.

Self-described socialist. I think he assumes that beating Tagg would be performed by the Collective Hive, not just himself.

It extends out of Chicago through the South Suburbs and, now, into Will County, where I will now have the privilege of being represented by a guy who tried to buy a senate seat, used tax dollars to fly his whore around the country and is faking mental illness to avoid indictment. He does have what most black politicians have-a majority black district where black voters have no problem voting for the most vile pols imaginable.

275 This makes barely more sense than the outrage over "Binders" did.

What is the point of this? How does...Lawrence (snort)...imagine this is a winning topic? Is he so sure that his audience of simpering chimps is going to get excited because some guy who feels protective toward his father is being challenged for feeling that way?

Oh well, at least he's moved on from threatening women. I'm actually impressed by that.

294 This is what's so awesome about New Media 2.0. The conservative Old Media--George Will, for instance--and even New Media 1.0 like Hannity always are instinctively pussies about stuff like this. The message they try to send is "Democrats are not the good people they claim to be"; but the message they DO send is "Democrats are really mean for picking on me."

The blogs, which for the most part are New Media 2.0, don't play that game. They don't wallow in Big Meanie O'Donnell crap. They take him apart like the draft-dodging pussy he is.

I assume that like most other things, this is about money. In the old days, the only conservatives who could afford a media presence were rich sissies who didn't feel comfortable being anything other than rich sissies (whereas the leftist sissies like O'Donnell were quite willing to talk trash that they knew full well they'd never have to back it up).

It wasn't until the advent of blogs, as an Internet presence became affordable for the average working-class American, that conservatives arose who would do the one thing worse than kicking the shit out of Draft Dodger O'Donnell--that is, telling him the truth about himself.

I especially liked the upward camera angle near the end. It was either supposed to signify Tag's perspective after getting the what-for from Larry Boy, or it was the cameraman just trying to look up Larry's skirt.

304 Ace, you forgot one key toughness factor in Lawrence O'Donnell's favor: He grew up BLACK in Boston, or Needham--a much tougher upbringing for a black boy amongst all those paleface wiseguys!

Well, at least he was BLACKER THAN Herman Cain, right? Isn't that what he was telling us about this time last year? And Herman Cain's pretty black. But Lawrence O'Donnell was blacker.

306 So Lawrence sneers at Tagg who grew up in the "rich suburbs""...While Lawrence went to school in...Needham?

I knew Needham. I grew up next to Needham. I played school sports in (against) Needham, incl St. Sebastians (stomped them)...I worked in Needham. I got married in Needham. At the...GOLF CLUB.

I know Needham, and I can assure you it is one of the wealthiest suburbs in Moscowchusetts, right up there with Newton, Brookline, Wellesley, Lincoln, and Belmont (where Romney lived).

Posted by: JewishOdysseus at October 19, 2012 05:33 PM (wyHbU)

307 Who the hell is Lawrence to be making fun of ANYONE's name?

In my Catholic grade school there was a kid named "Lawrence" though we didn't know it until we graduated eight grade. He went by "Larry". Years later he told me that he knew in the first grade that he had to be "Larry" or every day would be ass kicking day for Lawrence at Our Lady of Sorrows Elementary School. Judging from the way a boy named "Rene" was treated, Lawrence was absolutely right.

309 I grew up in Needham. It's a nice town. The worst part about it now is that's it's full of rich, hypocritical Liberals who are about spreading the wealth - other people's - and shoving multicultural, tolerant bullshit down your throat, without having to subscribe to it themselves. I really don't remember it being like that when I lived there.

So I guess Larry fit right in.

311 I also grew up in Needham. The public High School now has an escalator and the town pastime seems to now be tearing down split level ranches and putting up McMansions.

Needham was a great place to grow up in - just 11 miles to Boston and a commuter train stop downtown. My first job was a pan boy at Helen Cross Bakery and I also worked Brigham's, Sunnybrook Farms (the milk store), and KFC. I don't think any of those businesses are still there. It was more of a mixed town back then. Mixed income that is. Outside of a Medco program bus with a handful of black students there were no blacks in the High School, or the town as far as I know, despite about 1,000 students total. Needhamites supported the black community, provided they stay in Roxbury. But it was safe and quiet with good schools. I was lucky to have that experience.

313 When O'Donnell went to St. Seb's it was located in Newton. It's biggest rival is Belmont Hill which is where the Romney's attended school.
