  •  In vintagejulie's defense, Fineman loved Palin (6+ / 0-)

    I think the media was a little starstruck—and I admit to being one of them because I looked at her [Palin's] political salability as an exciting figure early on.

    Supporting your point, that Fineman is not an idiot, He did rather redeem himself, in the rest of the exchange:

    The McCain campaign didn‘t look, the media didn‘t look, the voters did, and that‘s one of the reasons why John McCain lost.

    OLBERMANN:  I looked.

    FINEMAN:  And you looked.

    OLBERMANN:  I looked.

    Howard Fineman.  

    FINEMAN:  Good for you.

    I don't think you can be a success at anything if you think about losing, whether it's in sports or in politics. ~Edward Kennedy
