The Stupidest Person in the World

Maybe "stupidest" is overstating it a bit, but I always love unconscious, self-inflicted, boneheaded irony. And Keith Olbermann likes to dub people "The Worst person in the World" on his show, though his criteria are rather eccentric.

From the Denver Post, Keith Olbermann, commenting about Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld comparing anti-war activists to pre-WWII appeasers:
"As a critic of the administration, I will be damned if you can get away with calling me the equivalent of a Nazi appeaser," Olbermann told The Associated Press. "No one has the right to say that about any free-speaking American in this country."
Actually, Keith, the First Amendment to the Constitution gives all of us "free-speaking Americans" that right. Did you think that criticism was a one-way street?

Here, let me demonstrate: Keith Olbermann is not the equivalent of a Nazi appeaser. In my opinion, Keith is in it for the money, and would have to work his way up to the moral level of a Nazi appeaser.
