    ...and if KO engaged in bluster at least it wasn't Beckian violent conspiracy theory bluster - it actually has a basis in fact.

    I think folks need both the cathartic "he's saying what I want to say but in front of a camera" and the more toned down analysis.

    There is a market for Keith Olbermann - it's odd that businesses don't pick up on that one.

    •  Is that the only way to speak truth to power (0+ / 0-)

      I think not, in fact, it is not productive.  Think MLK; he always had a grace that KO never had. Those who did not agree with MLK did not find much traction over time in marginalizing him. When you speak to and about people the way that KO does, you are quickly marginalized.  This is a large part of why so many dislike Beck and Palin.  It is also why they dislike KO.
