Over at Swampland Ana Marie Cox caught up with SNL skit subject Keith Olbermann and asked him what he thought of Ben Affleck‘s impression of him (the second half of which, is far funnier than the first, in our opinion). His response is, how shall we say, lukewarm at best, that said, is anyone shocked to learn Keith may be somewhat lacking in the sense of humor department? Also, the McCain camp says there is no story behind the missing Sarah Palin line.
SNL and my Football Night In America show share adjoining studios, so upon my arrival yesterday, awaiting me was one of the cue cards from the bit, with Ben writing of the sketch: “Keith — Remember, a) I didn’t write this; b) it took years of study — fondly, Ben.”
As to the giddiness: Honestly, everybody deserves a laugh but if on the weekend before the presidential election they spent more than seven seconds bothering with ME, the campaign staff has even less of a clue than I thought.
