Olbermann's Response to Coulter

In the Headlines thread I just said that, unless Olbermann Watch had missed it, Olbermann somehow managed to refrain from responding to Coulter.

He does the whole "we could take the same classes" thing I expected.

Apparently he went to the ag school just because it was cheaper than the actual Cornell. Yeah, that's why I didn't go to Princeton. And also why I didn't go to the Moon. The cost.

Thanks to Allahpundit.

Incidentally... I went to a college with this same sort of structure -- a more established, more selective college at its heart, with several other affiliated colleges (including an ag school) incorporated as part of the university.

Olbermann claims he's never heard other Cornell alums differentiate between the different colleges, and that they all believed themselves "equal."

No offense, Keith. You thought that because you were at the weaker, less-selective school. And you didn't hear it because people were just being nice.

Trust me, I heard a lot of this, and I didn't even go to a great school. But yeah, the people at the more-selective college did get annoyed when those from the less-selective colleges would claim to have come from our college. Like deliberately misstating which college they actually attended in the yearbook.

Petty, yes, but people are petty.

Again, I'm sure you, at the state ag school, thought you were all equals. The kids at the pricey, tony, more-selective Ivy private college didn't.

And that's not just Coulter -- that's all of them.

Incidentally, those attending night school at Cornell are getting a Cornell education, too. Does Keith consider them equals? Of course not -- in that case he's suddenly all distinction-drawing.

All of this is petty, again. But Olbermann makes his nut on petty distinctions between where people attended college. When it's pointed out that he actually did not attend a particularly selective or prestigious college, suddenly he wants to play the egalitarian "we're all equals here" card.

Um, right. Where was the egalitarian spirit when you were running down people who went to "Religious Lunatic University," Keith?
