Keith Olbermann often goes after FOXNews' Bill O'Reilly, and rightfully so, but this particular segment on Monday's Countdown was among his best.
For some unknown reason, O'Reilly decided to write about the Spitzer controversy in his weekly newspaper column and as Olbermann put it, it's about the only subject BillO can truly cover from a position of expertise. The only reason Keith could come up with is that The Culture Warrior was somehow trying to explain his own disgusting behavior. Why else would he want to remind everyone about the sexual harassment suit that cost him a reported $10 million?
"For reasons known only to our friend Billy, he decided to deconstruct the Spitzer saga in the latest edition of his not-so-widely-read newspaper column. Again, when it comes to having your pockets drained and your name turned into a punchline by your pursuit of a woman, Bill O'Reilly knows his topic. Why he would write this column and remind everybody of all of this all over again? Well, maybe in trying to explain Spitzer, perhaps BillO has wound up explaining...BillO."
