THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 11: So, let’s talk about Sarah Palin, who Olbermann must be contractually obligated to mention every 15 minutes on “Countdown.” He’s clearly obsessed. Now, Olbermann likes to make up little nicknames for his nemeses. In his world, Bill O’Reilly is “Bill-O,” Glenn Beck is “Lonesome Rhodes Beck,” dignity is “#1 Mortal Enemy.” (Ok, only two of those are real.) Well, Sarah Palin’s nickname is “Sister Sarah.” My best guess is that this is a reference to an Alice Cooper song about a nun living a depraved secret life, but really, who knows. When Olbermann stumbles on something he thinks is clever, he’ll repeat it without explanation until the end of time, or at least until his show is canceled.
Anyway, recently Olbermann has also been calling the former Alaska governor “Miss Palin,” and tonight he took another step and called her “Little Sister.” Keith, let’s talk about this for a moment. Is Sarah Palin a helpless creature to be infantalized with a “Miss” and a nickname like “Little Sister”? Or she an adult whose popularity and ideology pose a serious threat to Democrats, and who is going to, in your words just yesterday, “kill us all”? Sarah Palin is not your “Little Sister,” Mr. Olbermann, and just because you object to her doesn’t mean she’s a child. And if that’s really all she is, then why are you so afraid of her?
Let’s sum up the week. Friday: Keith Olbermann is bad at spelling. Monday: Keith Olbermann is bad at telling jokes. Tuesday: Keith Olbermann is good at picking on children. Wednesday: Keith Olbermann is bad at understanding things. Thursday: Keith Olbermann is bad at respecting women. Better luck next week!
