Dear Countdown:

You named me "Worst Person in the World" on October 6...

...when do I get my trophy? Tell me there's a trophy!

Sorry it took me so long to inquire, but you see, I don't watch Keith's show. In fact, I don't even know anyone who watches Keith's show. It was left to another blogger to inform me that Keith had graciously elevated me to the company of Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, and Rush Limbaugh.

However, Keith's ratings notwithstanding, I greatly appreciate his efforts. If you don't give out trophies for "Worst Person in the World," do you at least have an icon I could display on my blog?

One other thing. Could someone let Keith's researchers know that someone entered a one room schoolhouse and murdered several little Amish schoolgirls last week? A number of people have remarked that this despicable act might have been more worthy of the "Worst Person in the World" designation than a name error, acknowledged and corrected. It's the sort of little programming tweak that might help get Keith taken seriously by anyone to the right of Michael Moore.

Just sent this off to "Countdown," which I understand is the name of Olbermann's MSNBC show.
