Me too! I have an affinity for competence and morality in government!

keith20olbermannApparently, Keith Olbermann showed up on “The View” – which is really neither here nor there (but seriously – “The View”?).  Gawker went on to (correctly) berate him (as did the yentas on “The View”) for not voting (apparently to symbolically give himself “non-partisan” props):

We’ll freely admit that it is stupid and unfair to say “Keith Olbermann is a big fat liberal” just because he hates George W. Bush with great intensity. It is quite possible to intensely hate George W. Bush as a conservative, a moderate, a libertarian, an Anti-Federalist, a Whig, or a fascist. It is reductive and stupid to equate hatred of George W. Bush and the modern ruling Republican party with any political ideology beyond an affinity for competence and morality in government. And, you know, genuinely unbiased objectivity does sometimes mean saying “Jesus Christ this administration is terrible.” That’s not a political statement if it’s true!

Maybe it’s just me, but who doesn’t love a good Whig joke?
