Take 2

One of the great things about this country is we are a people of second chances.  Sometimes, three, four, and five chances.

Keith Olbermann has signed on to do a late night talk show on ESPN2.  You might remember, Olbermann left the network under miserable circumstances several years ago.  The same goes for FOX, MSNBC, and Current.  Sense a pattern here?

The man has tons of talent, but he's what's called a high maintenance employee.  I'm not sure he's worth it, and if Keith Olbermann is so smart, he should be able to see why every thing he touches turns in to a train wreck.

Former New York governor Eliot Spitzer is running for New York City comptroller, the city's chief financial officer.  Spitzer got caught up in a prostitution scandal in 2008 and resigned as governor.

Polls show Spitzer leading his opponent.

He's also authored a new book.

Spitzer's acts speak for themselves, but the fact he did it while pretending to be Mr. Law and Order.  It is the hypocrisy that is the most disturbing.

And, like the Tsarnaev Rolling Stone cover, Spitzer seems happy to have people talk about him again.
