The MSNBC host's habit of equaling or surpassing his nemesis Bill O'Reilly in self-righteousness isn't a recent phenomenon, and has made the show increasingly difficult to watch. Even by that standard, though, this was a bit much.The Ego is never self-righteous because the Ego is always, always, always right. Doesn't this goonhead get that? Is it really so hard for these stupid idiots to understand they should bow down at my feet and worship all that is so very fabulous about me? Honestly, I do not expect my viewers to be on my intellectual level, I mean, after all, there is no one who is on my intellectual level because I'm the smartest man in the damn room, got it? Anyway, this blithering idiot then goes on to critique the length of my latest Special Comment.
the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. brought his "I Have a Dream" speech in at under 17 minutes, John F. Kennedy's inaugural address lasted less than 14 minutes and the Gettysburg Address is only 10 sentences long -- you'd think Olbermann could manage to wrap up the "Special Comment" in under 10:53.It was an important message. It needed time to deliver. Mark The Ego's words, one day those Special Comments will be thought of as far more important than all those other speeches combined. And you know why? Because The Ego wrote them and uttered them and delivered them with such utter conviction. Because yes, The Ego is always right. And let's be honest, it also kills one entire segment of the show. And if the Ego knows anything at all about his audience, it's that they never grow tired of seeing more ME. And it is all about me after all. As it should be.
