"Is Sarah Palin being sort of - I don't mean to defend her - but is she being destroyed because she didn't understand that she wasn't supposed to be one of those people, she was just supposed to use those people?"
That is what Keith Olbermann said tonight in his 3rd story in the countdown tonight entitled Republicannibals.
"And...she didn't even get to keep the clothes!"
See, I believe that "I don't mean to defend her" is Olbermann-ese for, "I kinda do feel a little sorry for her." I know, I know lots of people think Keith is the devil, but I spend just about every evening with Keith and I think there's a bona-fide sentimental softie in there underneath the scathing wit and crippling sarcasm. So again, in normal English, maybe his words on this segment don't sound entirely sympathetic, but in my view it was the Keith Olbermann version of a Christmas card and fruit basket to Sarah Palin.
