With all of the fantasizing that left wing political commentators have done in the past 10 years about how much different things will be when... only to find out how wrong they truly were, their "victory" has to be an ego smashing disappointment.
I could give two shits about Olberman or his opinions, but it is sad to see such deep disenchantment. I was watching Lewis Blacks most recent special a few nights ago. Politics aside, I really like the guy and think he is one very funny and poignant motherfucker. The dude looked like he was either going to drop dead or shoot himself in a state of complete and utter nihilistic disappointment.
My wife asked what was wrong with him, as she usually likes his humor too. I responded that it appears that all of his hopes and dreams have been shit upon by political maneuvering. 30 seconds later, he confirmed exactly that, and with the same eloquence.
I think that for a lot of these people, their dream has turned into a complete nightmare.
