OK… It’s the first day of Keith Olbermann‘s Countdown on the Current TV Network, and I am watching him Interview Michael Moore on Obama’s ethical and legal avoidance of the War Powers Act in Libya. I’m thrilled that the first thing Keith did was show that he wasn’t a front for the current Administration… or Democrats in general.
When you compare him to Fox News with its talking heads adhering to the Roger Ailes Daily List of attacks that will be made on the left and no connection with the truth, you find the kind of independent thought that we have missed since Keith went off MSNBC.
It is great to hear again a Special Comment, this one giving the definition of his program’s point of view:
“The weakest citizen in this country is more important than the strongest corporation.”
John Dean is here to comment on Justice Clarence Thomas taking gifts and his wife taking funding from a conservative Texas millionaire and seeing how this affects his Supreme Court decisions, like the Walmart/ women employees class action suit which came down against the female employees of the big-time retailer. As Dean said
about the Court, this is a great day for big business.
And Markos Moulitsas (of the Daily Kos) is back as a regular commentator after having been bounced off the tube by MSNBC a year ago for comments that network ( and especially Joe Scarborough) apparently didn’t agree with.
Welcome back, Keith. I’ll be watching.

A poem for the morning:
Republicans are funny folks
They like to laugh at racist jokes…
But make a joke about their guys
And they will tell you “It’s all lies.”
Perhaps the thing their humor lacks
are ways of getting votes from blacks.
When Obama impersonator Reggie Brown took the stage Saturday at the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, the audience howled as he joked about how he only celebrates half of Black History Month and that his mother loved a black man, “but she was not a Kardashian.” They were practically rolling in the aisles at a bit about how presidents age in office, in which a stylish “before” photo of President Obama and the first lady was followed by an “after” photo of actors Redd Foxx and LaWanda Page playing Fred Sanford and Aunt Esther from Sanford and Son.
But when Brown started in on the 2012 Republican candidates — he said Newt Gingrich‘s campaign is dropping “like Anthony Weiner‘s pants in an AOL chat room,” and that Tim Pawlenty could turn to “Obamneycare” for the spinal transplant he needs — Brown got the hook and was walked off the stage by a party official.

A Leadership Conference… give me a break.
