A couple of days ago, Keith Olbermann issued one of his most scathing "Special Comments" on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Liberals were ecstatic, and left-wing talk radio has been sampling it ever since. Especially the command to President Bush: "Shut the hell up!"
Predictably, right-wing bloggers first made fun of the performance, then dissected it, and then--as they often do--completely misinterpreted it. I read some of their comments over the weekend, and was as confused by their response as Olbermann was. Here, he sets the record straight, while simultaneously skewering his critics. Need a band-aid, Johnny?
