POLITICS: Olbermann Rant

*Posted February 7, 2009*

If you saw the SNL skit with Ben Affleck as Keith Olbermann and you wondered, "how far are they taking this parody?" well you should know that it was hardly a parody, and that's what made it so great. This week, lefty loon Olbermann demanded the deportation of former Vice President Dick Cheney! (video here) Although it is lacking in some of the flair of Affleck's impersonation, it is just as hilarious. He certainly knows how to play to the (small) crowd. Rather than talk about his buddy Barack, or anything else for that matter, Olbermann rips into a guy no longer in office for policies no longer in affect. He slams Cheney for rationalizing what he's done over the past 8 years. I wonder, if Obama fails the economy with this second wreckless stimulus package, will the loonies take him to task? Or will they put it more on the Bush years? Poor little Keith wants to be taken seriously as a commenter, but he comes off as a petulant child, referring to former President Bush consistently as "Mr. Bush" (nice) and to Cheney as "Dick" (clever). Fast forward to the last 2 minutes for the craziness. He sucks big time.
