This book is a collection of Olbermann's Special Comments he started making in 2006. They're good, and shows that Olbermann is one tv newscaster who really knows what is going on, but they begin to sound alike after a while. The thing I found that most irritating yet amusing was the constant use of the word "sir' when addressing President George W. Bush, or the Idiot Shrub, as I prefer to call him. You can just hear Olbermann saying it with utter contempt... as, indeed, Bush has shown himself worthy of, and Olbermann provides good reason for that opinion.
