You should click on Kieth Olberman's blog at msnbc.com ("bloggerman"); he is keeping the 'we wuz robbed' faith over there (regarding the Kerry-Edwards '04 defeat), and on his "Countdown" show.

'Course, to paraphrase Ned in True Grit; Olberman questioning how they count in Florida and Ohio is mighty big talk for a four-eyed hack like him -

his Countdown show is based on the premise that they will present the 5 most interesting stories of the day...and as the show unfolds - on any one show you will see a progression of graphics such as "#5 - Scott Peterson's haircut" and then a commericial, and then "#5 - sports brawls", and then "#5 - Monday Night Football Hussies" etc etc....it's a fraud!! They will have numerous #5's, and numerous #4's, and so on.

We'll even grant them the short takes and funny news videos as not counting against the "5 most interesting stories" - but they seem to have show more about the 12 or 13 stories they found most interesting, and then they score them as being level-5 or level-4 stories.

This is picking nits, yes....but Olberman always annoyed me when I tuned past him at ESPN, and now he has me tuning away from my beloved msnbc - except when he's away on vacation!
