Keith O., “The Sports Guy,” Morton Downey, Jr. and Wally George
Yesterday I told Ed Gillespie that we would almost certainly be named “worst person in the world” by Keith O for mentioning that Keith was, well, not quite ready for serious conversation on any subject. I described Keith O. as “a sports guy,” because Keith was once a wonderful sports reporter, but knows next to nothing about history, politics, or public policy and is a prisoner of the teleprompter and the fevers of MoveOn.org.
Tonight Keith proved himself 100% the sports guy by denouncing my characterization of him as a sports guy and naming me, once again, the worst person in the world.
Barnum, you are my hero. I didn’t think Keith was that predictable. But he is. The left has thrown up its own version of Morton Downey, Jr. in Keith O., another Wally George, but Keith O. seems unaware of that which he has become. Or his writers are.
Don’t get me wrong. Some sports guys are incredibly gifted when it comes to other subjects. Keith is not one of them. He lacks capacity. He lacks basic chords.
Keith, you are welcome on my show anytime for the entire three hours. I am certain you are equal to the challenge, ex-sports guy that you are.
