Keith Olbermann's Brilliant Special Comment

Another appropriate name for Keith's piece should have been "Congressional Whores." It's basically saying the same thing.

He told it like it is in the brilliant style only he possesses. No more two-weeks-off for you, KO: we need you too much!

However...what's what the new typography for the "Special Comment" label? It looks like something out of a 1960s "Good Housekeeping" ad pushing someone's Super Deluxe cookware or encouraging a new Lemon Fresh detergent. Not in keeping with the KO style, if you ask me.

Yes, I am a font geek.

Maybe it's because I live in a state with one of those blue dog whore senators he didn't mention but I thought this was his best S.C.

It was compelling, it was direct, it was specific, it carried the appropriate level of outrage, and its tone struck the right balance between impassioned rhetoric and just-the-facts journalism. Very, very well done.
