Keith Olbermann Makes the Top 5

Not to objectify brilliant newsmen, but I’ve always found Keith Olbermann to be a babe. Good-looking, smart, tall, well-spoken, smart-ass, funny. What else would a girl want? I like him so much, I used to watch his ESPN show on occasion — and sports bore me as a general rule. He's now the only reason I click regularly to MSNBC.

But this week Olbermann made it to my Top 5 list, kicking Chabon to the has-been curve. Why? Because of his comments about the Scooter Libby pardon. I was going to post the video here, but two great bloggers beat me to it. Scrivener and Lulu have the YouTube replay on their blogs, so click over to see it. Scrivener includes the transcript on his post.

Back off Beth! He's all mine!!!!!

Actually, he has a 23-year-old girlfriend, which makes me like him just a little bit less.

My wife believes I have a Man Crush on Mr. Olbermann because I watch his show so religiously.

They're all a bunch of crooks, aren't they? I remember Bill Clinton pardoneding about 43,000 people during his last 10 seconds in office.

I distrust all politicians. I have a feeling Olbermann distrusts only Republican ones, in the same way Sean Hannity distrusts only Democratic ones.

Unlike your previous commenter, I will admit to having a man crush on Keith. On an unrelated topic, how is the new Nick Lowe CD?

"willingly lowered their voices"? I must have blinked and missed that part...please tell me Mr. O is presented as an editorial portion of MSNBC, not the "reader of the news"

"rat bastards" is the height of eloquence, I think.

LULU: He has a 23-year-old chickie because he hasn't met us yet. He's just biding his time.

GRANT MILLER: That's so hawt.

DAN: I think every president takes advantage of pardons in his last days of office. But this one smells like week-old fish. I understand your distrust of politicians, but you have to pick your flavor, based on what's important to you.

DR. MONKEY VON MONKERSTEIN: Again, hawt. And I'm loving the Nick. Shall I share?

HOLLYC: If you had clicked on the link on his name, you'd see that he has a show on MSNBC: "Countdown with Keith Olbermann."

BARBARA: Isn't it poetic?

ALLISON: Thank you, ma'am. Sometimes thinking up the labels is the most fun part!

JEWGIRL: He's so pretty ...

He is the most stunning TV journalist on TV today. He politically speaks for me.

M: Stipey and I are so alike. Maybe I should shave my head, too.

T-BIRD: He's so smart, so eloquent — and so damn funny.
