Hillary Clinton is supposed to be on “Countdown with Keith Olbermann” tonight. Like, 25 minutes from now.
Considering how K.O. put Hillary on blast with a “Special Comment” five weeks ago... is it hoping for too much that this meeting will produce some thunder ’n’ lightning?
I’ll post an update after it’s over.
UPDATE (04/21/08): Well, no thunder, no lightning.
Olbermann tried to challenge Sen. Clinton on several elements of her campaign – her meeting with “vast right-wing” conspirator Richard Mellon Scaife, her use of the image of Osama Bin Laden in an anti-Obama ad, her previous extolling of John McCain’s commander-in-chief credentials.
And Hillary dusted the furniture with him.
The woman is good. She is tough, she is smart, and she’s at the top of her game right now.
In a later segment, Olbermann seemed defensive and almost apologetic about his lack of follow-up questions.
Save your breath, Keith. Obviously you’re at your best popping shit behind people’s backs... not to their faces.
You, sir, are a minor leaguer.
