I'm not a bad person

"She's the Paris Hilton of politics," he said. "Oh and if you put that on your blog you gotta give me credit."

Corey was referring to the over exposed Sarah Palin, who's done nothing of worth since her loss in November. Still the media seems fixated on this woman and this displeases me and my friend. He looked at me and sighed.

"If only she weren't so hot."

Earlier that day I was watching Countdown with Keith Olbermann. He was doing a segment on Palin and how she showed up at some exclusive Washington D.C. dinner while skipping out on the Governor's retreat or something. He then went on for about five minutes talking about how he doesn't understand why anyone's reporting about her. During his usual MSNBC like gift of not being as funny as he thinks he is Olbermann went on about how useless she is while the graphics department kept looping video of the Alaskan Governor looking her best.

Of course Keith had on a guest to discuss just how worthless the former Vice Presidential candidate is and they made lame jokes back and forth about how neither can understand why they're talking about her.

It was quite possibly the most mind numbing piece of crap journalism I've seen in a long time. Look folks, I'm not a fan of Olbermann and that doesn't make me a bad person. From him ripping off a far better journalist's exit line to doing long disingenuous rants about topics he obviously neither cares for nor is that educated about his brand of entertainment disguised as edgy political analysis is beyond stupid. Sure his target is finding viewers who like sound byte information who can then take what they hear and appear at the office or at the next family gathering to spout off looking all brilliant. For that he does a great job.

Oh and guess who's the worst person in the world today. Go ahead I dare you.

Sure Palin may be the Paris Hilton of politics, but Keith is the Mad Magazine of journalism. Actually Mad is funnier.

Yesterday he had to prey upon Palin's daughter and her interview with Greta of Fox News fame. Sad really.

"Fox News is hated because they're elitists, and the worst winners television's ever seen." - Keith Olbermann

Now that Barack Obama is President, which commerative doodad does Keith Olbermann whack off to:
a) the President-Elect gold coin.
b) the President Inauguration plate.
c) a picture of Sarah Palin looking sad because she lost the election in which her presence was irrelevant seeing as how she is in no way loopier than Vice President Joe Biden.
