    …and oh, yeah. Olbermann's got his own “perceived cleverness” gauge and the two indicators are inversely proportional. The more clever he thinks his comment, the smaller his mouth becomes and the larger he flares his nostrils. I'm right on the money on this one, check it out.

    I used to watch Keith O until it became clear that he was nothing but an arm of the Obama campaign. His sickening rants over Hillary Clinton and constant propping up of Obama finally got to me. I'll never watch him again. I have had to swith to Bill O'Reilly and FOX news for the truth on the Clinton & Obama campaign.

    I didn't know that Billo fans knew how to use computers. Kudos to your kids or your local librarian. Oh yeah, the world is round…deal with it.

    Perhaps these numbers have more to do with liberals/progressives having better things to do with their time than sit around getting their hate on. Things like fixing the hardcore mess the Republicans spent the first six years of this decade making. I'm just amazed so many Fox viewers could figure out how to get their televisions on.

    Keith O was boring on ESPN. Now he is boring on MSNBC. Billo brings on opposing views and debates them, letting the opposition have the last word and the people decide. Keith rarely brings on someone who disagrees with him. It is Air America on TV. What journalist scores points by constantly belittling and talking about his competition? Hey, we did this in high school radio and that is where MSNBC is stuck. Sure Billo bloviates and his ego is enormous, but he is entertaining. Keith is boring and juvenile. I learn little form K.O., so why watch him? He’s not entertaining at all.

    KO has a sharp, sardonic wit about him, and is amusing on that level. But watch two shows and it becomes painfully apparent that without having Bill O'Reilly to attack, he has no show. That one constant is the only schtick KO has. Sure, O'Reilly is schtick too, but at least he is secure enough to spread it around. KO just comes off like he has a Nielsen ratings Napolean complex… a veritable Little Cable Man's syndrom. Come on, Keith, find something more interesting to berate if berate you must.
