In case you missed it, here’s Keith Olbermann spending fourteen minutes with David Letterman on Tuesday, explaining his departure from Current TV. I like Keith. I like that he bucked the pressure and put a progressive voice out there on MSNBC when it wasn’t the safe thing to do. I like his sense of humor. I understand he has a big head in both a literal and figurative sense and I prefer the scalpel-like insight of Rachel Maddow to Olbermann’s blunderbuss bluster, but I figure the left needs some melodramatic pundits, too. We can’t abdicate entertainment to the other side (so long as we stay good on the facts). And who knew they were having a tussle over the car service?
