Countdown To COUNTDOWN . . . 3, 2, 1!

He's BAAAAAACCCCK! Keith Olbermann, the progressive fighter, returns to the cable airwaves to wage all-out war against Rightwingville, resuming where he left off. And he's freed of his corporate chains, on Al Gore's CURRENT TV Monday, June 20. This time, Keith will be his own boss. It'll be interesting to see how MSNBC reacts to the return of its prodigal creative voice, now in competition. Keith didn't hold back in this interesting profile on the New York Times Magazine. Here's a noteworthy excerpt:
In MSNBC’s recent decision to hire the former Republican Party chairman Michael Steele as a pundit, he sees evidence that the former outpost of liberalism is tacking toward the mushy middle. “There is a lot of desperation over there now, and it’s completely justified,” he said.
Like I said; but no one listens to me. At least Keith reserves his contempt for the right targets. Never his audience. Nice to see you back, Keith!
