Upstaging McCain's Acceptance Speech

Pass the smelling salts to Keith Olbermann, when he finds out that Barack Obama will be appearing on Fox News with Bill O'Reilly Thursday night just before John McCain's big moment at the Republican Convention.

Call it payback for springing Sarah Palin on the media the next day to overshadow the afterglow of Obama's acceptance speech last week, but Olbermann, who has been Obama's most ardent media fan, is learning the hard way about the axiom, "No good deed goes unpunished."

Being interviewed by Olbermann to counterprogram the Republicans would be fairly ho-hum, but making his first appearance with O'Reilly qualifies as man-bites-dog news for Obama. And if past history is any guide, O'Reilly will turn into a pussycat in the face of real star power.

Obama is becoming very, very boring. Ho Hum! He's scared stiff that he will lose. Not only is he going into the "No Spin Zone", he's enlisted Hillary Clinton and all female governors to begin pushing back on Sarah Palin.
As far as I'm concerned, he's a do-nothing talker. He's probably already writing his 3rd book while we're paying his wages as a senator, and millions of other poor stiffs send him money to fly around the country to talk some more.
