Keith Olbermann Calls Steve Wynn The Worst Person In The World

Steve Wynn Is The Worst Person In The World On MSNBC
Steve Wynn Is The Worst Person In The World

Keith Olbermann was entertaining to me when he was on ESPN Sportscenter.  I didn’t watch Countdown on MSNBC because I tend to stay away from politics on TV.  I don’t care about his politics, but he was fun with sports. I watch brainless TV and sports and I’m happy with that.

Anyway, Olbermann got the boot from MSNBC and is now on Current TV and he’s still doing the “Worst Person In The World” sketch.  Last night Steve Wynn won the “Worst Person In The World” for comments he made about Barack Obama earlier this week.  Evidently this made him a worse person than Sarah Palin and Congressman Alan West.

Take a look.

When I started writing this post I asked who was more obnoxious Steve Wynn or Keith Olbermann and Olbermann won in a landslide.  The comment that I echo is from Denver Gambler ” Olberman for sure, he doesn’t have a snazzy casino”.

Now this brings up a new question: Would you rather be the “Worst” or “Most Obnoxious”?

Steve Wynn Still Doesn’t Like Barack Obama

Steve Wynn seems to care only about one thing – his business.  There’s nothing wrong with that and there’s nothing wrong with the recent quarterly financial results at Wynn.  Every quarter Steve Wynn takes a few minutes of his conference call to discuss what politics are helping or hurting his business.  For the past few quarters he’s railed on President Barack ObamaThis quarter was no different.

The man who played a major role in revitalizing Las Vegas is bashing President Barack Obama as “the greatest wet blanket to business, progress and job creation in my lifetime.”

Speaking to investors on a Monday conference call, casino developer Steve Wynn – calling himself a “Democratic businessman” – went on an extended rant against Obama and his policies.

His customers and the companies he works with “are frightened of this administration,” he said, “and it makes you slow down and not invest your money. Everybody complains about how much money is on the side in America.”

“Until we change the tempo and the conversation from Washington, it’s not going to change,” added Wynn, according to a transcript of the call’s question-and-answer session.

Steve Wynn owns the company and is allowed to use his quarterly earnings reports as a soapbox, so I don’t see anything wrong here as much as I feel his constant complaints to be boring, repetitive and obnoxious.  Extreme talk like this (good or bad) just makes me tune out Steve Wynn.  Frankly, the only reason I’m passing this info on is because I know others find it interesting.

Oscar Goodman Leaving Las Vegas…Kinda

Las Vegas’ mayor, Oscar Goodman, may be the most famous mayor in the United States.  He’s been in the public eye ever since I noticed Las Vegas.  Today is his last day in office.  He may still remain as the face of Vegas since his wife is taking his seat.  I never followed his politics much, so I don’t know if this is a happy or sad day but it’s definitely a day many will remember.  Here’s a blurb from Fox 5 in Las Vegas.

LAS VEGAS (FOX 5) – With a bottle of gin and a cigar on the table, Oscar Goodman told FOX5 it’s been an incredible 12 years as mayor of Las Vegas.

He gained fame as a mob attorney for some of the most notorious men in the business.

“I was beginning not to like myself in the sense that I went down to the office each morning to see what money I could make, what I could charge,” said Goodman. “And that wasn’t me.” 

After fighting some sharp criticism, Goodman won the election in 1999 and hasn’t looked back.

Las Vegas has seen the revitalization of its downtown area, a new mob museum and soon, a new city hall.

In upcoming months, Goodman will have his choice of projects, including offers for a reality show, documentary, judge show and book.

His last action as mayor will be tomorrow, when he swear wife Carolyn Goodman into office.

Goodman will be gone, but not forgotten.  His charisma leads me to believe he will continue to expand his popularity with the TV shows and books mentioned above.

Moving forward, I’ll pay more attention to Carolyn Goodman since I’m now a resident of Las Vegas and the local politics matter a more to me now than they used to.

Steve Wynn Doesn’t Like Barack Obama

Sensational headline? Maybe. Judging what Steve Wynn says in this video it seems as he doesn’t like nor agree with the Barack Obama and his staff’s current political policy.  This isn’t the first time Wynn has gone off on a politician, but it is a new interview which, seemingly, was meant to discuss the excellent first quarter earnings Wynn had.  Thanks to @brian_fey for the heads up.

Meghan McCain’s Boobs Bounce From MGM to Palms

I don’t use ECG to voice my opinion on much more than casino marketing and gambling.  That won’t change anytime soon.  My agenda with ECG has been to share casino info for places I enjoy visiting.  I often look for excuses to included good looking girls in my posts for fun.

I was catching up with Daily Fiasco this morning and came across an article about Meghan McCain’s recent trip to Las Vegas.  As per her tweets MGM messed up her reservations and the Palms came to save the day.

She unleashed on Twitter, saying across several messages, “I just arrived in Vegas and tried 2 check into the MGM where they messed up my reservation and proceeded to be extremely unaccommodating and belittling – I proceeded to call The Palms where they were unbelievably hospitable and welcoming. Anyone that follows me on twitter or knows me, knows how often I travel to Vegas. From here on out The Palms will be getting my business, and I recommend my twitterfam give them yours as well. I would specifically like to thank Michelle for being so nice to me. I never do this, but gotta give credit to The Palms Hotel and Casino tonight!”

How about that.  Meghan McCain is daughter of former Presidential candidate, John McCain.  Politically charged people might say that there is a Democrat/Republican agenda in action here.  I just see a damsel in distress with a hotel coming in to save the day.  Evidently Palms deserves props for good customer service here.
