Lawrence O’Donnell does the impossible

In this interview, the host of an MSNBC talk show actually makes New York mayoral candidate Anthony Wiener, as obnoxious and unlikable a person as I have ever seen in public life (and I am not even talking about his much-publicized private life), actually come off as sympathetic. What is it with people like O’Donnell who invite people for interviews on their shows and then self-righteously lecture them? Wiener clearly has a massive ego but O’Donnell seems to have an even bigger one, covered with a generous coating of sanctimony. Wiener, for all his faults, was exactly right in calling him out.

    I had MSNBC turned on last night while I was doing some reading, and was like, “What the f*** is this?!?” I found it just completely bizarre when O’Donnell started going off about how he hadn’t been critical of Wiener’s “photography.” I pretty much tuned out after that because I could see it was going to be a disaster.

    Add that to the list of reasons for despising O’Donnell. I’m no fan of Wiener but that whole exchange was completely disgusting. Was there a relative question in there? You have to wonder who Wiener must have pissed off to get this meaningless grilling.
