SMART BECAUSE The Air America radio vet guest-hosted for Keith Olbermann in April; by September she had her own show, bringing an intellectually progressive bent to the cable-news talking-head cacophony, as encapsulated by her tagline, ''Mind over chatter.'' Bonus smart points to MSNBC president Phil Griffin for using talent like Maddow and Olbermann to help define the network's point of view; Maddow rewarded his faith by doubling the audience for MSNBC's 9 p.m. time slot.Phil Griffin for using talent like Maddow and Olbermann? I thought we'd been through this point before. Phil Griffin is my bitch. He doesn't have a clue as to what to say or do unless I tell him what to say or to do. Just think of him as having The Ego's hand up his ass like a ventriloquist's dummy and you get the picture. Clearly however, Entertainment Weekly does NOT.
Rachel Maddow was Keith Olbermann's discovery not Phil's. Rachel Maddow has a job because of Keith Olbermann, not Phil Griffin. Rachel Maddow has an agent because of Keith Olbermann (and being the genius that is Keith Olbermann's Ego, that agent is ole Keith's long-time agent who always remembers to look out for KO first-as it should be). So in short, EW is so stupid they don't even have the sense to put Keith Olbermann on their smartest list. Keith Olbermann should have been numbers 1-25 on that damned list. Even the damn harpies from The View were on the list but not Keith Olbermann. Don't they know that Keith Olbermann graduated from high school at 16? Don't they know that the genius that is Keith Olbermann never went to class and still earned a degree from an Ivy League school? Don't they know that Keith Olbermann runs his own damn network? This may require one of my very Special Comments (note to self: write angry diatribe against EW for next week's show).
Smartest people on TV huh? I've got a list of the dumbest magazines in the world right here. Guess who is at #1 stupidest magazine? Entertainment Weekly. And #2-25? Yep, you got it: Entertainment Weekly. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. But not Keith Olbermann. Keith Olbermann is a genius (no matter what some stupid "entertainment" magazine says). And don't ever forget that Keith Olbermann is a genius or else, got it people?
