Tough But Fair

I’m not the hugest fan of MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. He feels, too often, like a solid radio talent who has been given a TV show but no on-camera training; hence the way his sanctimony-oozing vocals don’t really fit with his smug, Bill Maher-esque expressions. But here and there he delivers some compelling editorializing, and this bit of business from Thursday night tying together Vladimir Putin, The Olympics, Pussy Riot and Edward Snowden is definitely that – some real throwing-up-of-hands, lesser-of-two-evils, tragedy as parody, “world of gray” stuff that most cable news avoids like the plague.
