Olbermann is fantastic. If nothing else, he's worth watching just for his mockery of O'Reilly, naming him the "worst person in the world" on a regular basis for his daily lies/douchebag behavior, or wishing "happy holidays" to all the "secular progressives" (may seem harmless, but nothing could be more offensive on the "Factor" if you're familiar with it). Amusing stuff.
Besides that, the Countdown is a pretty entertaining light-hearted twist on the news. But when he gets serious, Olbermann also makes some extremely eloquent, poignant, and passionate rants sometimes. He's the only guy with a TV show who is not afraid to express unrestrained outrage at the Bush administration and unabashedly call them out on a daily basis for all the awful shit they do.
We need more guys like him.
