Keith Olberman is just about the best thing on television, after Jon Stewart and The Daily Show, of course. During "Countdown" last night, he showed footage of President Bush at a rally in Florida. Sitting behind the President, soaking it all in, was Joe Scarborough, MSNBC host. Huh? Imagine if Tom Brokaw or Chris Matthews was a guest at a Kerry rally. All the wowsers in the world would go nuts.
Anyway, after showing the clip of the President, Olberman acted befuddled, asking to the people off camera,"Who was that behind the President? Who was that?"
Ahhh, someone on cable with a conscience!
