What does the future hold for Keith Olbermann?
Is he going to continue doing what he is doing now?

I was thinking today about Keith as a "Rush Limbaugh" type of figure for people disaffected with the Republican dominated media and political scene to rally around, but it's not a good analogy because Keith is intelligent, articulate, and telegenic. Unlike any of the current right wing media asshats.

Someone who is as good with words as Keith potentially has a great book or three in him.

He could run for office.

A lot of possibilities, really.

11. I kind of dissagree with that - there are lots of voices speaking
truth. The problem is getting airtime.

4. I just hope he stays on the tube keeping us informed
as with an informed populace we wouldn't be where we are today.

5. Well, I hope he stays where he is for now. He's much-needed
on MSNBC, we just don't have enough Dems to hear on TV. He can still do this and write a couple of books.

6. He should stay put until Bush is gone
After that, the sky's the limit. I'd wager he'll get lots of interest from the networks, which would probably make him feel really dirty. I hope he tells them to shove it.

9. a prison cell at gitmo......
...if the dems don't win back the congress and senate in november.

i assume the slow push to facism will continue and eventually, "enemies" of the state will be incarcerated.
