I admit it, every so often I used to watch Countdown with Keith Olbermann a long time ago. His sarcastic style of delivery was entertaining at times.
Then he started getting on my nerves.
His show and his schtik went progressively downhill culminating in his OBSESSION with Bill O’Reilly – WHAT’s with THAT? It’s a one sided competition. Why does he feel so compelled to be so competitive with Bill O’Reilly? You can only imply someone is a ‘nazi’ so many different ways before it starts sounding a little creepy. It started getting really old.
Still Olbermann managed to get some news this week. It appears Olbermann was on vacation this week and returned from his vacation for the express purpose of selectively editing and slamming Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld’s speech to the American Legion.. The progressive blogsphere is all a twitter over it. Frankly, if Rumsfeld made that many people mad, he must be doing something right.
Maybe he’s gone off his meds, or is desperate for ratings, or both.
You can find Olbermann’s response to Rumsfeld’s speech here.

Hot Air has the video and writes:
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s an instant classic of nutroots porn, second only to ColbertÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s faux-dissident burlesque at the White House correspondentsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ dinner. In fact, Olby goes further than Colby: weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all used to the comparisons of Bush to Hitler and the Democrats to Neville Chamberlain, but never before have I heard someone compare Bush to Chamberlain Ã¢â‚¬â€ and to Hitler (or some generic Ã¢â‚¬Å“fascist,Ã¢â‚¬Â if you prefer), both in the span of a few moments.
