"Bloggermann's" Obsession - Keith Olbermann refuses to give up on the idea of "vote fraud" in Ohio. On December 15, he wrote about how Rep. John Conyers is planning to contest the certification of the electoral votes in January. Because, you know, that worked so well last time. Of course, in order to challenge the vote, Conyers needs a Senator. If he couldn't find one in 2000, where the vote was much closer, he won't find one now, which makes this a nonstory. That Olbermann is reporting on this shows just how desperate he's becoming to find stories.
Today, he's "sorting out" the various claims about election fraud, with his commentary. Needless to say, among his beliefs is that there is no liberal media. His actual quote: "I think we can pretty much put this one to bed." Right, Keith. That the media is refusing to spend time and money investigating fradulent claims of voter irregularities shows a terrible conservative bias. He also tries to argue that fascism is a right-wing invention and that "socialism" was "was almost ironic in intention." Wonderful grasp of history there, Keith.
This guy really should have stuck with football.
