Olbermann's off his meds again

I almost didn't post this due to my self imposed ban on gay porn but here it is; Keith Olbermann's defense of the Clinton explosion during the Chris Wallace interview:

Don't worry Keith, I sure Bubba is sending over a box of his special cigars as I type. I thought President Clinton's flying off the handle was a bit much but this, this takes the cake, hands down. I don't know how anyone can even pretend to be an impartial observer after a rant like that one.

If you haven't seen the interview that started it all yet just scroll down on this Hot Air page. Besides getting almost every single one of his assertions wrong (follow the 'Update' links for details) he also does a mean self-parody of his last great defense in which he blamed a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy (of which apparently Fox News and Chris Wallace in particular, are now high ranking members) for his troubles:

So how'd that 'deflect and deny' strategy work out for you last time Mr. President?

The phrase "I think he doth protest too much" has never had more meaning.

As to the accusations of sandbagging, I don't know about you but 1 question about one of the hottest political issues of our day, preceded by a few questions on his charitable work, does not seem like sandbagging, more like a responsible journalist conducting an interview and covering all his bases.

To see Michelle's take on things check out her latest vent (and yes, I can't say for certain but I'm pretty sure the freeze frame image they use for the vent is photoshopped to make Clinton appear redder, not that it's intrical to the point but I figured I'd clear the air before straw men accusations of hypocritical photo manipulation surfaced).
