As our regular readers know, The Garlic is an unabashed fan of MSNBC Countdown anchor Keith Olbermann.
The show is hip and that's largely due to the hipster Olbermann.
We've highlighted, via our Minced Garlic posts, his often searing, ripping, right-on-the-money Special Comments, taking apart the Bush Grindhouse lies, or the stripping away our civil liberties, and the conflation of politics and terror for nefarious purpose.
The current issue of The Nation offers a most entertaining take on Olbermann, his rise, what makes him tick. And, for the masses not hip, it also serves as a primer, dishing the dirt, be it the 'Oddball' feature or the 'Worst Person In the World' nightly award.
It's a good read so check it out.
