Keith Olbermann is back!

My thanks to Jeff for the link and the title of this post.

And here's the text version, with links backing up everything Olbermann says.

It's pretty shocking heard all at once, isn't it? Donald Trump has diarrhea of the mouth. Every day, there's something new - many somethings, often enough - which keeps any particular bit of crap from seeming noteworthy. After all, tomorrow there will be another bit, just as bad.

The media love it, because they're in business to make money. It's the same reason we see the most sensational crimes reported in the 'news.' It's the same reason gawkers crowd around accident scenes. It's human nature.

And a lot of us seem to have lost the ability to distinguish 'reality TV' from reality. But when it comes to our democracy, it's very frightening, isn't it?
