Cee Lo Green - Forget You on Jools Holland
This song has been playing in my mind since finding out that MSNBC negotiated a separation agreement with Keith Olbermann. Actually, the R-rated version has been running through my head, but I thought that would be a little intense for a Sunday morning.
I don't really want to get into speculation about the terms, simply acknowledge that Keith will always hold a special place in my heart, not only for his roaring truths when no one else on air would say what I was thinking, not only for paving the way for Rachel and O'Donnell when other outlets were hiring more conservatives, not only for reaching out to the progressive blogosphere for analysis when other shows stuck to their Villagers, but for also making me realize the reach and influence of C&L. He was the first person of note that I realized was reading the site. Not only reading the site, but looking for us to feature his spots to help raise his profile. His is a voice that strikes very deep here at C&L, and I hope that he lands on his feet sooner than later.
If it's Sunday, John McCain will be on television again. This time, he's on Face the Nation. This Week is featuring the senators who have announced their retirement last week: Kent Conrad, Joe Lieberman and Kay Bailey Hutchinson. If you really want to raise your blood pressure, you could hardly do better than Mitch McConnell on Fox News Sunday and Eric Cantor on Meet the Press. Hey Mitch and Eric...forget you.
