It's pretty obvious that Keith has been regressing for a while now but nothing speaks more to the truth than the stunt they pulled last night.
Countdown was good up to the point where everytime Rush Limbaugh's name was mentioned they put a bobbing Rush in the corner of my screen. That's all fine and dandy if you're 12, and the conversation at the time was about something less important or serious.
I like Jonathan Alter and I like to hear what he has to say, but this gross adolescent display of attempted humor was distracting, and spoke loud and clear that Keith no longer takes his job serious.
The conversation was, in my opinion, a very intense and very serious one. Terrorists kill people. Or has Keith forgotten that? To turn such a wonderful interview into a lame joke was at best childish and at worst disrespectful to his audience and to Jonathan Alter.
It had gotten so bad that I gave up trying to listen to what they were saying and just turned the t.v. off. I couldn't take it anymore.
Keith has done some really stupid things on his show but this one takes the cake. At that moment I actually did believe that he really is Un American. How can he forget 9/11? And how can he make light of the posssibility of another terrorist attack?
He has gotten so far to the point of regression that I'm not even sure he understands the magnitude of what took place last night.
He's so obsessed with belittling the right wing folk that he forgets his place. He forgets the reality of the loss of thousands of lives in order to make a stupid ass joke.
I no longer believe that Keith gives a damn about his show or respects, and/or appreciates, the importance of delivering a professional attitude towards his work.
And I no longer believe that he takes terrorist attacks serious anymore.
If he wants to run amok and pull childish pranks then he should do it on his own time and not when he's having a conversation on national television about terrorism and the blame game.
It was pathetic and disrespectful. And Keith and his staff should be ashamed.
