Why I Love Keith Olbermann

Keith Olbermann is often considered a partisan hack, because he mercilessly mocks stupid conservatives like Bill O'Reilly. And recently Ben Affleck did a bang-up job of doing a send-up of him on Saturday Night Live, and made him look ridiculous. But I dig him. He's tall, and has that prematurely gray thing working for him in really attractive ways. And, every so often, he says something like this:

9 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. MSNBC calls the presidential race for Obama.

We did it. We elected the right guy.

This is Jerry Sanders, the Republican mayor of San Diego. Send him fan mail. I did.

Pity the Poor Guy

I have always felt sorry for Guy Ritchie. I mean, really. He makes a couple of interesting movies that attract a lot of attention, including Madonna's. She marries him, and his career goes down the crapper.

Now they're splitting, and rumor has it that Guy is going after her millions--she's worth about 15 times more than he is. I can't help hoping he gets so of it. He needs something to get his career going again, and some of her money, along with a sense that he's reclaimed his own identity, might help.

For the record, I have no great affection for Guy Ritchie--I just think it's probably really hard being married to Madonna, and I think she'll recover from the breakup more easily than he has, because after all she's done more while being married than he has. This doesn't mean I feel sorry for her other exes. I can't manage to feel sorry for Sean Penn--he was an asshole to Madge. And I still love Madge, in that way you love a crazy family member you still hope you don't have to sit by at Thanksgiving.
