I am not even mad at Keith Olbermann anymore. I only feel sorry for him.
You see, Keith cannot tell the difference between neighbors and friends voluntarily helping each other and the government undertaking to help everybody.
Thus, an elected official who exhorts his constituents to help each other out but who opposes additional federal efforts to intervene in people’s lives and jobs is a massive hypocrite.
The debate doesn’t need to go any further. If his mind truly cannot process the profound moral and philosophical gulf that exists between those two acts, then it is senseless to argue with him. (Not that anybody has ever argued with him– I have never seen Keith Olbermann interact with anybody who disagrees with him.)
So leave the Sultan of Smug to belch self-satisfied snark to an ever-diminishing audience. Same goes for snickering 14-year old, Chris Hayes. (Although that is not to say I am done posting video mash-ups of the show.)
