One year's worth of commentary from Olbermann's MSNBC TV show. ( )

Parts of this book are very funny, and parts are interesting and serious. Putting the two parts next to each other doesn't work very well. Funny bits: 4 stars; serious bits: 3.5 stars; combination: 3 stars. ( )

Great book, and extremely humorous, but I was looking for more than just transcriptions of past Countdown episodes. Worth a read, then pass it on. ( )

I have never seen Keith Olberman's TV show on MSNBC. My only knowledge comes from bits on YouTube that political bloggers post. Olberman is that rarest of birds: the liberal talker in the So-Called Liberal Media (SCLM). He is getting famous for "telling it like it is" to people like the president by pointing out painfully obvious failures in a pithy and often amusing fashion. Evidently, he has a piece on his program entitled "The Worst Person in the World" where his writers take on several people who have done stupid, crass, thoughtless or

The stinkers, the rascals, the reprobates. . . and the just plain dumb.

(Yes, Bill, he's talking about you.)

Geraldo Rivera. The Coca-Cola Company. Victoria Gotti. Tom Cruise. Various members of the Bush administration. All have earned the dishonor of "Worst Person in the World," awarded by MSNBC's witty and controversial reporter Keith Olbermann on his nightly MSNBC show Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

Now, he brings all his bronze, silver, and gold medalists together in this wildly entertaining collection that reveals just how twisted people can be—and how much fun it is to call them out on it.

From tongue-in-cheek observations to truly horrific accounts, Olbermann skewers both the mighty and the meek, the well-known and the anonymous for their misdeeds, including:

Ann Coulter, for, among other things, calling Muslims "ragheads" in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington

Barbara Bush, for making a generous donation to the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund earmarked exclusively for the purchase of computer software . . . software sold by her son, Neil

The staff of Your World with Neil Cavuto, for the story about the murders of Iraqi civilians that was accompanied by the on-screen graphic: "All-out Civil War in Iraq: Could It Be a Good Thing?"

Olbermann also reports on some of the recent fallout from his awards, such as the controversy with John Gibson and the mysterious disappearance of remarks about Cindy Sheehan on Rush Limbaugh's Web site. Plus, he reveals the winner of the most coveted award of all: "Worst in Show."
