Watch for yourself what Michael Moore an Keith Olbermann were laughing about on Olberman's show the other night.
The problem with political discussion
Michael Moore (and Keith Olbermann for that matter) epitomize the filth that now masquerades as American political discussion.in America is that hardly anyone ever makes an attempt to see the other person's point of view. Not very many people would be caught dead admitting that one's political adversary is ever correct. Rush Limbaugh is perhaps more guilty of it than anyone. However, Keith Olbermann has more than once claimed to be above that fray. Yet Olbermann raised no protest whatsoever when Moore used the dead and displaced as a backdrop for his macabre humor.
As soon as Moore made his comment, Olbermann should have ended the interview in disgust. But he didn't. He just laughed.
