Enter Keith Olbermann. In practically every one of his recent programs he has made a habit of referring to McCain as a tottering old man, implying that because of his age he’s obviously senile, out-of-it and incompetent. Tonight Olbermann was at his worst, denigrating the senator because he had admitted to remembering Pearl Harbor and mocking him as a witness to the original Depression. Olbermann also made a tasteless remark alluding to McCain’s alleged use of “Depends,” an incontinence diaper.Alfred McGuire
Why is ageism all “okay” in this country? Why would Olbermann feel free to make these kinds of remarks when I doubt he’d dare to make sexist or racist or homophobic remarks in the public forum?

Wearing identical gray pinstriped suits and those signature pomade unction ed waves of tress, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, America's Audio Shepherd's Pie of Pop Politics, and his twin Rachel Maddow sneered at Senator John McCain's speech on Foreign Policy in their continuation of gender neutral Wildean farce - Countdown for March 25, 2008:
It is a very sad thing that nowadays there is so little useless information, Rachel, that McCain would lead into his speech on foreign policy by pacing his thoughts within the historical context of his life - Pearl Harbor!
It is always a silly thing to give advice, but to give good advice is fatal. , Keithie, since he is doing so well in the polls, that he would allow the Democrats an open door to his age.
Depends - of Course Depends,One can survive everything, nowadays, except death, and live down everything except a good reputation. You may remove yourself from my last comment, Rachel.
I suppose that I shall have to die beyond my means. We ARE such things as Dweebs are made of , Keith!
Rachel, It is better to have a permanent income than to be fascinating. Wait a minute. . .!
