Countdown Goes Drag Queen

Several weeks ago, Bill Maher boasted how Glenn Beck would finally go insane and appear on Fox News dressed as a woman. While Beck hasn’t appeared on his show in drag, a guest on Countdown with Keith Olbermann has:

On the Nov. 4 broadcast of MSNBC's "Countdown," with fill-in host Lawrence O'Donnell substituting for Keith Olbermann (still MIA since New Jersey gubernatorial race went Republican), Michael Musto, gay columnist for The Village Voice and author of "La Dolce Musto" dressed up as Palin and reenacted two phony speeches. The occasion: A few media outlets had obtained "leaked" portions of two possible speeches Palin would have given on Election Night 2008 in the event of a McCain/Palin victory and a defeat.

Well, what'dya know: Countdown did what Beck was supposed to do. I guess Keith Olbermann is desperate for ratings. Maybe the White House should attack MSNBC; then MSNBC can have a boost in ratings just like Fox News experienced.
