Yeah, I watched Countdown the other night, but it probably took an email from my like-minded sister (scary thought, no? two of us?) to get me to post Keith Olbermann's special commentary.

You have to wait until about 1:55 into the clip for him to get going, but it is well worth it. And as usual, he hits the nail on the head. Or through it.

I've seen him irate before, but I think he kicks it up a notch here.

My first thought went to the Simpsons (at it often does) of Krusty's 29th Anniversary Special. In it, there is a clip of a little known Sideshow Raheem:

Krusty tentatively says "Ah... the script says I have to bonk you with this" (holding a hammer); Raheem curtly replies "I wouldn't!!!!" "Right on!" says Krusty. Then after the clip is over, Krusty mutters, almost to himself,: "Angry.... angry young man."

Is Keith our new Raheem? Let's hope.

I'm shocked at the statements that have been made at McCain/Palin rallies. To allow (and in fact condone) such blatant racism is completely unpatriotic.
