Disappointment over reactions to the Special Comment

BuzzFlash calls Keith Olbermann’s Special Comment ‘scathing’. Sam Seder at the AAR blog calls it a ‘KO’.

I want to know what Special Comment they were watching. In the one I saw, Keith Olbermann informed Senator Clinton that she had, unwittingly, gotten herself deep in kim-chee, and he explained what she needs to do to get out, and Olbermann was correct.

Which is an answer to the petulance of Big Tent Democrat over at, who decided ahead of time to pay no attention to the Special Comment because, supposedly, Olbermann was simply doing his part of a general MSNBC effort to undermine Hillary Clinton. So what? Even if unwittingly, what Olbermann said was correct: Clinton was indeed in the kim-chee, and to get out she needed to do what Olbermann suggested. (It wasn’t done unwittingly, however, because Keith Olbermann will lend a helping hand even to someone he might personally dislike.)

The kim-chee was indeed deep, given that Jon Elliot, he says, got not a single call or e-mail of protest after being tough on Clinton Tuesday night (though I myself didn’t listen to that show).

(BTW I love actual kim-chee.)
