Well there goes any pretense at exciting election night coverage

So, two things.

I watch MSNBC for my newstainmentaganda fix.

And, Election Night Coverage, since Russert is gone….would have had Olbermann and the occasionally tolerable Chris Matthews to fly around the participants and returns and poke at some problems.

About one fifth as good as Russert, but at least not the video equivalent of mashed bananas, rice cakes and undercooked potatoes.

David Gregory, the nursing-home-food of newsanchors has replaced them.

Gawd what a bore.

if it really was because of an offmike attitude/onmike gaffe….

Jeebus Olbermann, for the love of everything you’ve been jabbing at about the current administration for the last three years couldn’t you have waited until *after* the election to be caught with your offscreen attitude?

Nope, you havent been let go…

Countdown is still there.

But whether this was mutual or not, you’ve effectively been banished from the ringside seat of the arena where the direction of the country will get decided in November.

Thanks a bunch.
