The Lyrics

Somebody -- I won't dignify him/her/it by naming him/her/it -- said he/she/it didn't think most Americans knew who Keith Olbermann is. Is he/she/it kidding? Everyone who watched ESPN's "SportsCenter" in the 1990s knows who Olbermann is! Now he hosts "Countdown," at 8 PM on MSNBC, where he tells the truths about the right wing's lies. And also has some fun topics. One of his bits is something he admits he "borrowed" from the old "Bob & Ray" radio show. (Bob Elliott is the father of comedian-actor Chris Elliott, and Bob and the late Ray Goulding both knew Keith from being big baseball fans -- Boston Red Sox fans.) Keith says in his recent book of the same title, "Of course, these aren't REALLY the worst people in the world." He makes excpetions for bloodthirsty dictators, which is why he (almost) never names George W. Bush. His usual targets are "dumb criminals" (hardly an original target); people unknown to most of us who make the news for doing petty, even cruel things and then disappear from our consciousness; and politicians who tell gross, even hypocritical lies, and their willing accomplices in the media who do the same. His most frequent "Worst Person"? Bill O'Reilly of the Fox Noise Channel. The bit is supposed to be funny occasionally. But the things O'Really has done lately, like blame victims of pedophilia and apartment fires for their own suffering, aren't funny anymore.
Hey!
Did you happen to see Keith do
"Worst Person In the World"?
And if you did
was he lying?
Lying?

Hey!
If you happen to see
the "Worst Person" tonight
just call and tell me...

Was it O'Reilly?
Was it big fat Rush Limbaugh?
Whoa, was it Savage?
Was it Coulter?

He woke up this morning.
Didn't realize what he had done.
He stood alone in the cold gray dawn.
He'd made the "Countdown" number one.
He lost his head and he said some things.
Now come the headaches that TV brings.
He knows he's wrong, but he still can't see
why he was exposed on MSNBC.

So...
Hey!
Did you happen to see Keith do
"Worst Person In the World"?
And if you did
was he lying?
Lying?

Hey!
If you happen to see
the "Worst Person" tonight
just call and tell me...

Was it O'Reilly?
Was it big fat Rush Limbaugh?
Whoa, was it Savage?
Was it Coulter?

Hey!
If you happen to see
the "Worst Person" tonight
just call and tell me...

Was it O'Reilly?
Was it big fat Rush Limbaugh?
Whoa, was it Savage?
Was it Coulter?

As someone who HAS to get home in time to watch "Countdown", I had to give you 5s even if the title didn't really scan. Go, KO!

With so many prospects, how does Keith decide? Gotta admit, O'Reilly tops the list of loathsome.

Ah, quit bitching about yourself, Pach. Nobody likes a narcissist.

And on the day this one appeared, who "won"? Why, "comedian Rush Limbaugh," as Olbermann calls him. Seems he thinks Democratic opposition to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is due to "liberal racism." You see, Gonzales is the first Hispanic Attorney General. According to Drug Rush, that's why Democrats don't like Torture Boy. Olbermann pointed out that one of Gonzales' biggest critics is the Democratic Senator from California. Ken Salazar. Hispanic. That's why Olbermann gave tonight's award to "Comedian Rush Limbaugh, today's Worst... Person... in the World!"

Rush Limbaugh - who would take his ranting seriously?
