In memoriam

RIP Keith Olbermann’s career. SNL presciently provided it an appropriate premortem tribute:

Richard, as you know, throughout this campaign, I have frequently called for Senator McCain’s arrest. But with this latest celebration of all things Nazi, has not McCain crossed the line and for the good of the country should he not straightaway resign?

Well Keith, I too have been critical of Senator McCain. But to suggest that he has Nazi sympathies I think is rather outrageous.

Courageous? I suppose. It’s certainly not the first time I’ve been called that. That started in high school, with my editorials for the school radio station and my work as equipment manager for the cross country team. So courageous? Sure. Guilty as charged.

He really should have stuck with Sportscenter.
