Keith Olbermann's special torment

Make a note: Saturday night was when Keith Olbermann and MSNBC's Countdown jumped the shark.

I admit to having enjoyed watching Countdown -- taking it for what it is, which most definitely
is not a straight news show . . . what few of those exist anymore. I plead guilty as charged to loving me a good Bush-bashing, and few have been as good at that as Olbermann.


Customers at the Mouth-Foaming Outrage Store are limited to "X" quantity of purchases, and Keith Olbermann tried to get away with buying 72 shopping carts full of
"I'm pissed! PISSED, I tell you!" Note that "X" is less than 72, and the consequence was Ben Affleck's hilariously vicious sendup of Olbermann on Saturday Night Live..

As in the sad case of Arthur Herbert Fonzarelli, I'm afraid Olbermann and MSNBC will find it would have been more merciful had the shark not been safely cleared.
