The Smell Of Desperation?

We've had a lot of fun watching the ongoing Keith Olbermann and Bill O'Reilly feud. Keith has not spared either Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News or The New York Post in their determined cheerleading for the Bush Administration.

But this latest riposte from Murdoch's NY Post has a serious stench of desperation to it. Not able to address him on facts, Page Six has opted for smearing Keith on his sheer manliness. I mean, how laughably pathetic and transparent can you be?

First, there was the saga of "KarmaBites", the allegedly 30-something Cuban hottie who claimed that Keith was (gasp!) bad in bed and hightailed it out of the hotel room as quickly as possible, leaving her with no other recourse than to create a website (interestingly, accessible by invitation only) denouncing his skills in the boudoir. I'll refrain from using the old adage about getting the milk for free with Karma--after all, she agreed to meet the guy in a hotel room for a tryst. There's a term for people like this, but of course, the NY Post makes Keith out to be the cad.

Apparently, not enough people took that story seriously. Can you blame them? So now--according to Page Six--Keith not only has limited skills in the bedroom, but he requires pharmaceutical assistance to get there in the first place. Their evidence? Cialis advertises on MSNBC during Countdown. I'm not joking.

I can't bring myself to watch Fox News long enough to know whether there are Cialis ads (although Skin The Fox does have a list of sponsors, which includes a pharmaceutical company). But I have yet to watch a Monday Night Football game or Superbowl that doesn't include a Viagra ad or two. Is Murdoch suggesting that the NFL and its commentators can't get it up too?
