Video: Olbermann names Ed Morrissey best person in the world

Savor it, if only because this is closer to the truth than Olby’s been in a long, long time. I’m so relieved it’s Ed, too: Someone on Twitter told me he had named me best person for yesterday’s post about the Paulnut with the gun outside Obama’s town hall. Between the fight with Meggie Mac and the lovely KP getting engaged, that would have been more than my beta-male heart could stand.

But no, it’s Ed for his post on the National Guard’s non-internment camps. For the rare distinction of having earned Olbermann’s blessing, let me be the first to say to Ed: You are the RINO king. Enjoy the throne of shame; if you need me, I’ll be at the bar adjusting to my new role as Hot Air’s “true conservative.”

Update (Ed): Geez, you step out for a few minutes, and look what happens! Allahpundit’s relieved it’s not him; I’m relieved AP wrote about it before I had to post this myself. How would I have framed it — hey, I made John Hawkins’ most-respected conservatives list on the same day as KO’s Best Persons list? I feel like I traveled 26,000 miles just to get back to where I started.

I’m sure people would like me to be a jerk about this, but I’ll say thank you to Keith instead for the kind words. We’ll be arguing again tomorrow, and for the … rest of eternity, probably, but I’d prefer to return graciousness with graciousness.

Update II (Ed): Tommy Christopher uncovers the real conspiracy. Soylent Green, anyone?
