Even the Sports Media is Biased!

Just when you thought there was nothing MORE ridiculous they could get upset about than a photo that wasn't retouched, I bring you football. Specifically, an NBC program called "Football Night in America". On this show, they recap the games of the day with ESPN style glib commentary. As an example, kicker Kris Brown kicked a game winning field goal as time expired. The commentary? "What can Brown do for you? With a nice FedEx sign in the background." You get the idea. Pop culture and one-liners mix with football. So, why would the right get upset? Because one of the commentators is Keith Olbermann. And what did he say? He was responding to a Buffalo Bills player getting knocked out of the game with a concussion. "They had to cart Edwards off. He was OK otherwise, but he said 'I can see Russia from here.'"

Pretty innocuous, right? A little bit anti-Palin, but hardly earth shattering. I certainly don't think it called for a Michelle Malkin rant. Of course, nothing really calls for one of her rants. But I can't get out of my head how out of proportion the screeching is over this. Google "palin olbermann football" and see how many hits you get.

Ha - they've re-booted the old "Bush Derangement Syndrome" joke and turned it into "Palin Derangement Syndrome."

Brilliant! Except they have the definition wrong:

"Palin Derangement Syndrome (or P.D.S.) is the penchant on the right wing to go completely nutso over any comment on or criticism of Sarah Palin and a tendency to blame Sarah Palin's mistakes on other people."
