Kudos to Ben Affleck for this truly brilliant impersonation of Keith Olbermann. John McCain and Tina Fey were there too (video), but Ben Affleck as Keith Olbermann in a mock Countdown episode was the highlight of last night's Saturday Night Live. Keith has been getting away with his over-the-top drama king character assassinations for far too long. Affleck's "killer impression of the year -- perhaps even of the decade" perfectly captures the essence of Olbermann's sanctimonious and judgmental world view. I was glad to see Affleck nail KO's habit of calling everyone who disagrees with him David freaking Duke. The Right has Bill O'Reilly. The Left has Keith Olbermann. Woo. Hoo.
