It took several days for the news to reach me, but for my September 10 column, “General Petraeus Reports,” MSNBC’s Dolt-Laureate Keith Olbermann chose me that night as one of three runners-up for his nightly “Worst Person in the World Award.” In the column I juxtaposed two quotes (someone please look up “juxtapose”, call Keith and read the definition to him). One was from him, and one was from Usama bin Laden. The similarity is striking. Lil’ Keith had no facts or argument to dispute what I said: all he could do was hyperventilate.
I am disappointed. Next time, I’ll have to work harder to win the award. If I do, will someone please let me know? I’ve never watched the show, and no one I know does with any regularity (or at least while sober.)
