The Lone, Brave Voice of Keith Olbermann

When you were a kid, did you have a favorite movie? A movie that you liked so much that you tried to be like one of the characters? For instance, I always kind of wanted to be like Peter Venkman from Ghostbusters. Fighting ectoplasmic ghouls with proton blasters, telling off the EPA, hooking up with Sigourney Weaver… what’s not to like?

Keith Olbermann has a movie like that. It’s called Good Night and Good Luck. But someone who cares about Keith needs to tell him that this is not the 1950s, George W. Bush is not Joe McCarthy, and he’s not Edward R. Murrow. Because this is just getting embarrassing.
