A word on the inspiration for this blog. . and a note of Thanks to Flowergirl

And now a word from the real me, not Keith's Ego-it's currenly in a cage under lock and key so I can blog as me, not it.

I want to go on the record here as being in debt to Flowergirl at Countdown and Keith Olbermann, because it was her blog that inspired me to start this one. I think she's totally got Keith's number. She dares to ask questions which is not popular at all with Keith's fans who rabidly defend him no matter what and/or tend to ignore questionable actions and/or statements.

And no I don't hate Keith. I've been a CD fan for years, but over the past couple of years I've noticed that as the popularity of the show grew, the quality of Countdown declined. It's rapidly becoming just an echo chamber of "yes" men (and women) who repeat what Keith has just said. How is anyone going to benefit from that? I don't see anything to be gained by Keith and his fandom devolving into the liberal version of Limbaugh's "dittoheads" who need and have to hear their political views reinforced or get the Dem talking points on a 24/7 basis. No one side of the political spectrum is right 100% of the time but you sure wouldn't know it from watching CD.

So I began this blog mostly as a joke but also to call Keith Out when necessary, 2-To poke a little fun at the massive ego that is Keith Olbermann, and 3-to say what i really think about Keith in a goofy way w/o being accused of not being a true fan.

Thank you. I appreciate your support. You do a really good job here. I love it.

As for women being on his show? You can count them on one finger. I mean hand.

Thanks and right back atchya.

And you're right there isn't a real female presence on CD. He's said his staff is all women but he doens't put that many on air.

Well, there's Rachel. But she's gay. That's less threatening to him.

Maddow better watch it. Her ratings are way too close to my own. I don't like that. Because I AM MSNBC. And she better not forget it.

I say, never underestimate the power of Rachel Maddow.
