Keith Olbermann is so, so SEXY because he's so, so smart. And
skeptical, which according to him is a major trait to have for a journalist and what's been lacking.
On Bill Moyers tonight, who was excellent his own self, but it was a wonderful interview.
The new segment 'Bushed' from KO was chatted about; he's worried people will forget about all the previous crimes of the BFEE et al.

I found interesting the comment about his bosses; Olbermann is expressing their discontent because they can't, and that seems understood.

We are in an emergency; the rethugs (and Dems, though he didn't elaborate) are into expanding power on fear and security, while the Constitution and Habeas Corpus, or lack thereof, haven't been addressed.

Great show!

2. well, hell, babs
I am smart and damned skeptical
Whatcha say? :rofl:

But seriously, I agree with you re Keith - well, not particularly sexy to me, but damned admirable. The clips I saw of the Moyers interview were great. I hope the whole thing gets posted.

12. And extremely funny. He gets it. He gets everything!
There is no one like him, or who even comes close.

16. He's my moral authority. And, boy, that man can write! His use of the English language
is a joy to behold, isn't it? And his frame of reference is vast - including history, art,
sports, you name it. I think that everything he's done in his life was leading up to this point,
where he is in the best possible place for the biggest possible good.

Yay, Keifie! :toast: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :toast:

17. Olbermann is a very smart man; he's angry, I'm angry, and it was so
very nice to finally hear someone I agreed with, or agreed with me. He gave me the right to be angry, and let me know I am not alone.

18. Ditto! And just in the nick of time. I was about to lose my mind from the frustration
and anger which, until I found KO, I carried alone. (That was also before I discovered DU).
So now, according to that, I should be sane and secure.
Hang the f***in' bastards and throw away the key!!!!!!
IMPEACH, IMPEACH, IMPEACH!!!!!!

11. what a wonderful Christmas present
two back to back KO's. Bill Moyers is a national treasure, but KO is no slouch either. No one deserves his newfound celebrity more than Keith. I am so proud of, and happy for him. He's helped keep me sane since I found out about him.

24. Too bad most males don't regard women in
the same way. Smart women are usually referred to as 'uppity.'
