Keith Olbermann Doesn’t Vote So as to Remain Objective

15 Nov


Via Political Punch:

This week on “The View,” MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann said he doesn’t vote because “It’s the only thing I can do that suggests even that I don’t have a horse in the race.”

“I know it’s very idiosyncratic, but I would feel just a little hesitation, just a little drag on the airflow, if I went to criticize somebody, especially a president, for whom I had voted,” Olbermann went on to say in a statement to Portfolio. “It is driven by the same thing that used to make me keep my distance from the athletes I covered. I don’t want anything, even that tiny bit of symbolic connection, to stand in between me and my responsibility to be analytical and critical.”
