Perfection. Every yin has its yang; if you’re going to run away from Fox then there’s really only one true-blue nutroots-endorsed liberal sycophant to run to. But how sycophantic will he be? Reader RLW, who passed the item along, wonders:
It really isn’t a good idea for Olby to be hosting this. There’s nothing but downside for him. He risks pissing off his fans by asking any tough questions or impugning whatever “journalistic integrity” he may have by asking about nothing but puppy dogs and rainbows.
He’ll satisfy his fans by attacking from the left. That means puppy dogs for Kucinich, rainbows for Gravel, Saddam-era Iraqi kites for Silky — and gloves off for Hillary.
Although if he takes the gloves off for Hillary, what’ll that do to his “special relationship” with Bill? Watch this if you haven’t seen it before (which I know most of you have) and drink in the amazingly shameless obsequiousness of his tone. Here’s the bold iconoclast, the fearless speaker of truth to power, beholden to no one and nothing except the Facts, using his chance to interview the 42nd president to — well, just watch. A natural choice to moderate a Democratic debate.
