Pox on Both Houses: Media Darling Edition

For all the mocking references we see to “The One,” I find I normally associate dogmatic political cults of personality with the right. Whenever I’m tempted to think they’ve got a monopoly, though, I’ll pull up Jason Linkins’ no-punches-pulled article on Keith Olbermann’s complicity in an intra-network “truce” and skim the outraged comments from people stung by his cruel betrayal of “Keith.”

    Sometimes I feel like I’m the only guy on the left who finds Olbermann deeply unpleasant — almost viscerally intolerable — on purely aesthetic grounds.
