The invaluable Olbermann Watch:
This has to be quoted verbatim, since it is rich in Olbypocrisy and irony [as Keith Olbermann earlier this week said]:It's not an unreasonable request to ask that personal attacks against the wife of the candidate as part of a misguided strategy to torpedo a political campaign be off limits.
Stop the tivo! Let's set The Wayback Machine for just a few weeks ago:KEITH OLBERMANN: So Cindy, your husband is running a fully negative campaign. He's a flaming fraud. And if you think he's clean, so are you!
Cindy McCain, today's "worst person in the world"!
Attacking the wife of a decorated POW as a "fraud"...
...now that's what an Edward R. Murrow or Tim Russert would have done!
With Olbermann, though, it is hard to say whether it's hypocrisy or stupidity.
