Keith Olbermann might not be the anchor of the network news... yet... but he is the anchor of the most-You Tubed news show, he's probably the most talked-about news anchor, and his Special Comments have become a staple in the blogosphere.

Probably because these days it's easier to watch and listen to someone go off on this, the most corrupt administration the US has ever seen, than it is to read a newspaper column. Which shouldn't take anything away from Keith O., who is brilliant at what he does.

It's nice to see a local LA sportscaster rise up through ESPN and gracefully make the transition to political news. And it's also nice to see that one can make that climb without shedding too much of one's sense of humor, and without losing none of one's edge.

Anyways, Keith-O has a pretty good argument for BushCo to hit the road, yo, and Joe Donnelly over at the LA Weekly agrees.
