Not so sure about Keith being Rush's counterbalance. The much bashed left that never stands for responsibility fired their douche. Can't say the self righteous Right is going to send Rush on.
Both are bombastic douchi, only one the liberal boss has some convictions.

This entire episode is a sad one. KO was a great talent and brought real analysis to the political stage in his MSNBC show. I will not apologize for being a regular viewer nor will I back down from being somebody who loved his show and enjoyed greatly his tweaking of the right wing. However, he seems to have been his own undoing due to his own personality quirks and his own poor treatment of his fellow workers and colleagues.
His latest firing from the Al Gore fledgling operation reminds me of the great shortstop for the Chicago Cubs in the Fifties and Sixties. The tale has it that Banks went into the President of the Cubs office to get a better contract and wanted to be the highest paid shortstop in the league. He was turned down with this rebuke........ "Ernie, we finished last with you and we can finish last without you."
The ratings for the Gore network are so small that this means nothing.
I do hope it serves as a wake-up call to an otherwise great talent and he takes it as an opportunity to get his act together.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
He reaps what he sows.
I wonder what Billy Martin would have to say about this.
