Keith, you ignorant slut.

Be flattered: we at RedState save that one for *special* stupid.

(H/T Ace of Spades) The previous two times were for Jim “Saddam paid my way!” McDermott and Jay “Blame the Michelle Whitey tape on the VRWC!” Carney, which should give you some clue of the special level of stuck on stupid that this designation requires. Luckily, Keith Olbermann is up to the challenge.

This is based exclusively on a report by Sy Hersh…

Yes, everybody sane can stop reading now.

…about this super-secret organization called the Joint Special Operations Command…

Here’s the Global Security entry. And its Wikipedia entry. Lastly, here’s a double-super-secret book on the subject.

…that doesn’t report to anybody…

Except for the United States Special Operations Command. They’re listed here.

…set up by the Clintons…

Who apparently were running the country in 1980.

…and run by this shadowy guy named Admiral McRaven…

Cleverly hiding here
.

…who just ordered some spooky ‘certain activities’ stopped…

All of this is apparently based off of this article reporting how McRaven temporarily halted commando raids into Afghanistan for two weeks in February of 2009 – otherwise known as “during the Obama administration” – out of concern for the possibility of there being too many civilian casualties. And by ‘based off of’ I mean ‘both reports are in English.’

…and the CIA called it all ‘utter nonsense.’

OK, you got me there. It is utter nonsense.

Keith Olbermann then proceeds to wreck any chance for Howard Fineman to ever have his new book taken seriously by making Fineman play along. Fineman’s game enough, true… although the way that he kept throwing in if-its-true every chance that he got should have allowed even Olbermann the chance to realize that MSNBC’s research department fell down on the job here. Then again, if he had, he’d probably blame it all on Bush and Cheney anyway. Everything else is their fault, after all.

Moral of the story? While I don’t begrudge even the Online Left their masturbatory experiences, really, kids: don’t get your thinking from the guy from the cow college. Even if he does wear a suit vest.
