A few hits and a few misses from a relatively restrained seven minutes, with my favorite line inexplicably omitted from the clip: “I’m thinking of writing a book on national health care. It will be 2,000 pages, and you’ll have two hours to read it.” There’s bound to be some outrageous outrage over her shot at Anderson Cooper although (a) it’s nothing you wouldn’t hear at, say, Gawker, and (b) it’s framed as payback for his infamous “teabagging” goof on tea partiers on CNN (for which he later kinda sorta apologized).
Oh, and the Olbermann line? Quid pro quo. Nothing more, nothing less.
