Keith Olbermann, Supergenius

Keith Olbermann tells the Online Journalism Review that he doesn’t “believe journalists covering politics should [vote] (and I don’t think the democracy would suffer if however many of us there are, recused ourselves).” Guess there’s some sense to that argument, but since when is Olbermann a “journalist”? Personally, we have no problem with journalists voting — then be scrupulous about keeping your opinions out of stories. Or, fuck, put em in. Whatever keeps you from making lame puns and being the only anchor to give any credence to Ohio voter fraud stories. Hell, even Rather didn’t take that bait.
