Of course, Keith Olbermann will likely tell his viewers that he was number one last night.
Yeah, I hear Olbermann claimed he was #1 in ratings – I think that was in the category of puppy dogs with curly hair who eat Doritos? 🙂 He also said that Fox viewers were “tin foil hatters, conspiracy theorists, paranoids and racists.” What a guy that Keith is. Of course, no one heard him say it. We had to read it later. 🙂 Gee, I think I have misplaced that hat. Not to worry, I’ll just remove some of this foil from the windows and make me another one.
And where, pray tell, is Ms. Rachel on this list? Looks like she just dropped off the bottom. I just clicked on her show for a second, only to hear her blasting Michael Steele. I didn’t know she was so upset about a black man being head of the republican party, but the lil darlin was pretty overwhelmed and critical.
Notice Fox takes the top 6 any day and every day.
