Now more than ever, conservatives can have this debate among themselves: are the rantings of Keith Olbermann worth transcribing and ridiculing? If Olbermann doing his best impression of Sam the Eagle from The Muppet Show mattered when he was on MSNBC, a widely distributed cable channel, did they really matter during the failure of Current TV? And do they matter as Olbermann now descends to a YouTube series for GQ Magazine, best known for selling overpriced suits to male hipsters?
I would suggest they matter as an example of how desperate the Left is sounding after the election of President Donald Trump. CNN’s media unit circulated Olbermann’s latest rhetorical binge-and-purge in its daily newsletter, so let’s take a look.
We are at war with Russia. Or perhaps more correctly we have lost a war with Russia without a battle. We are not a democracy, we are no longer a free people. We are the victims of a bloodless coup – so far, a bloodless coup! – engineered by Russia with at best the traitorous indifference of the Republican Party and Donald John Trump, a man, to borrow a phrase from a December long ago, will live in infamy!
