TO OUR REGULARLY-SCHEDULED GREEK TRAGEDY
No, I don’t mean this evening’s “Barack Onassis–Live at Caesar’s Palace!”-show. Or even Arianna’s love life.
No, I’m talking about ‘The Keith ‘n Chrissie Show’ on the Olbermann Channel, LOLNBC.
Keith and his sidekick, 300-lb. Samoan political commentator Chris Matthews are quickly descending into Hunter S. Thompson-land, an Altered Reality vacation destination fueled by yohimbe bark, Pabst Blue Ribbon and the remnants of Ed Muskie’s ibogaine stash. I think I just saw Keith licking a psychotropic toad coming out of commercial break.
Chris and Keith are the political equivalent of an O.J. low-speed Bronco chase. Their ‘Fear and Loathing in Denver’-act has become Must-See TV. But for those who care about Keith, one word–“intervention”.
By the way, when Marcus Obamis announces his plan for defeat in Iraq tonight at his Big, Fat, Greek Coronation, can we call the plan “Plato’s Retreat”?
