LA TIMES: Countdown begins for end of Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown”?

without comments

surprising that a face like that would have smugness in its repertoire of expressions

A film review from Kenneth Turan writing for the LA Times:

Say what you like about Michael Moore, he certainly knows how to pick his subjects. “Fahrenheit 9/11” was so au courant about the invasion of Iraq it won the 2004 Palme d’Or at Cannes, and 2007’s “Sicko” got the jump on the current healthcare imbroglio. Now, barely a year after the Wall Street meltdown, “Capitalism: A Love Story” examines, in typical love-it-or-leave-it Moore fashion, the causes of the collapse of the century.

In a nonscientific poll* conducted by Missourah.com, it was discovered that 95% of the LA Times’ remaining 200 readers get a tingly sensation running up their legs when they read words like “au courant” and “imbroglio”, and hear any reference to the Palme d’Or award.  The remaining 5% clearly did not go to Columbia.  Maybe Brown, or…a state school.  If those people can even read…

*Note:  no one at Missourah.com actually wasted their time polling LA Times readers
