Yesterday, Keith Olbermann's MSNBC show Countdown was renewed for another four years, and, after hearing his commentary regarding Proposition 8, it's easy to understand why. Began Olberman, "I don't have a personal investment in this: I'm not gay, I had to strain to think of one member of even my very extended family who is, I have no personal stories of close friends or colleagues fighting the prejudice that still pervades their lives. And yet to me this vote is horrible. Because this isn't about yelling, and this isn't about politics. This is about the human heart, and if that sounds corny, so be it." The sometimes blowhard went on to say that he doesn't understand, in a world that's cold and so full of hate, how people can try to extinguish love between others. Clip above.
