Video: GE/MSNBC political commentator pretty upset about political influence of corporations. Leftist Tommy Christopher: Is Keith Olbermann Losing it?

Irresistible as a follow-up to Stewart’s takedown, which I took to be a green light from one of the left’s arbiters of cool that it’s officially okay not to like this grandstanding bottom-feeder anymore. Hey, what’s wrong with punching a few holes in the First Amendment to stop Olby’s employers from directly influencing elections instead of funneling money to obnoxious goons like him? Matt Welch explains:
Citizens United, a conservative 501(c)(4) nonprofit that has funded a dozen political documentaries over the years, produced a critical documentary about Hillary Clinton in 2008 entitled “Hillary: The Movie.” By a decision of the federal government, which was enforcing the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (known more broadly as McCain-Feingold), this piece of political speech was banned from television.

Let’s boil it down to the essential words: Political documentary, banned, government.
You don’t have to be a First Amendment purist to intuit that political speech was, if anything, the most urgent subcategory covered by the First Amendment’s “Congress shall pass no law” restrictions. And you don’t have to be a Hillary-hater to imagine the shoe on the other foot. What if’s 501(c)(4), Campaign to Defend America, had been blocked by George W. Bush’s Federal Elections Commission from broadcasting “McCain: The Movie”? Wouldn’t that stink, too?… READ MORE...

Is Keith Olbermann Losing it?

You seen Keith's unhinged 11-minute rant about the Supreme Court's McCain-Feingold decision. Compare it with another analysis, only about two minutes long, that takes a strikingly different approach: no name-calling, no camera pivots, fidelity to the Constitution. It's like night and day.

We see more credibility with a constitutional expert and JUDGE Andrew Napolitano than a miserable, progressive, mentally deranged and failed sportscaster like Keith Olbermann.
