Keith Olbermann commentary- 10/27/2010: Parade of GOP and Tea Party lunatics.

This will stay here until Tuesday, when the polls close. If you thought the Bush years wrecked our country, you ain't seen nothing yet. I hope Stomp-off's non-American visitors bear with me for posting this, but if these hateful people take over the U.S. government, we will all have to suffer the consequences. If you do decide to watch this commentary, please be advise that it runs 20 minutes!


'tis Autumn

From my apartment's windows, Central Park (my front yard for nearly half a century) tells me that Autumn 2010 is here. The bridge seen just to the left of the cranes is the Triboro, now unwisely renamed the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge—I have yet to hear anyone call it that, however. Now, why did Mt. Sinai Hospital have to erect that eyesore of an unimaginative building? Click on the photo to enlarge it.
