Keith Olbermann grieves us greatly with his beef about the current campaign:
“It raises the level of absurdity to something exponential,” Olbermann said on “This Week” about the Romney campaign criticizing Obama for consuming dog meat when he was 6 years old.
“With so many valuable questions going on, we’re wasting most of the time dealing with the dogs,” the former MSNBC and CurrentTV host said.
Increases the absuridty to "something exponential"? Darn, I wish he had said that absurdity had taken a quantum leap so I could pedantically point out that a "quantum leap" is actually the smallest... oh, forget it. What exponent did he have in mind? Knowing Olbermann's raving ego I would assume he is referring to the Power of One, but given his current paycheck maybe he meant the Power of Zero; neither exponent is especially fearsome, if in fact we fear absurdity at all.
The other George, Will, rode to the rescue, sparing me the trouble of trying to spell 'Stepanopol..." oh, forget that, too:
“The horse race is over, and the sugar rush that the media got from that is gone, and therefore they’re looking for something to keep their mind off, I guess, big questions,” Will said during the “This Week” roundtable.
The horse race is over and the dog racing has begun. Not locally, natch - the nation is headed back to Florida.
