Keith Olbermann appeared last night on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher as the second guest and later as a member of the panel. The conversation began with Cornell University (both are alumni) and the origin of their political beliefs. Maher also asked Olbermann why he continues to use the “Mission Accomplished” counter at the end of his show (“shouldn’t we let that go?”). Besides the political topics, a portion of the discussion revolved around Fox News. There’s this from Olbermann: “I have talked to Sean Hannity, where he says, ‘Isn’t this crazy that everybody thinks you and I hate each other? It’s just TV.’” See the first part of the conversation below, and after the jump, the panel discusses Glenn Beck (or as Olbermann calls him, “Father Coughlin with a crew cut”):
