It was cute for a while, but Chris Matthews Leg is officially “done” with Lil’ Beady’s monomania about the host of The O’Reilly Factor.
At first The Leg was amused by KeOlb’s all-consuming, reason-draining preoccupation. And it empathized. After all, it’s no fun getting trounced in the ratings night after night after night. Criminy, in a typical evening three or four times more people watch The Factorthan tune in to watch Olbermann give an hot oil video foot rub to the Daily Kos commenter mob. That’s gotta sting.
But The Leg says “e-freaking-nough already.” It’s had it up to here (indicating the hip bone area) with whole thing. “At least give it a rest off the air. And stop carrying around that ridiculous OReilly face on a stick, too. FYI, the kid on the other end of the Taco Bell drive through speaker can’t see that you’re holding the O’Reilly face up when you order—even though you think it’s hilarious.”
Meanwhile, The Leg got a kick out of seeing (on Hot Air) Olbermann be all conflicted and scoldy about SNL and Jon Stewart poking fun at the swoon MesmerO has the news media in. The Leg feels vindicated that it isn’t the only one feeling the thrill.
