Funniest thing I have read in a while — Micky Kaus posts emails from lefties on JournoList. The Olbermann diss is especially funny. I am glad to know that at least some on the left know the guy is really out there. I wonder if anyone will earn a “Worst” award on Countdown as a result.
Update: One of the emails I found amusing:

The main difference, which is glaringly left out by anyone who conflates him with the Savages and O’Reillys of the world, is that Olbermann doesn’t tend to, you know, lie about stuff regularly.
Calling Olbermann “egomaniacal” with a “penchant for hysterical drama” is a given. What is funny is saying he speaks the truth. Hysterical.
