Welcome Back, Keith

It's been more than four years since Keith Olbermann engaged in the kind of political commentary that was so powerful during its mid-'00s heyday that it upturned the entire editorial direction of his then-home network MSNBC. After departing MSNBC for a brief, ignominious detour at the now-defunct CurrentTV, Mr. "Special Comment" has doled out political talk 140 characters at a time on Twitter.

That changed yesterday with the debut of his new web series via GQ, the first episode of which decries the Donald Trump candidacy in ways that make his condemnations of the Bush administration feel restrained in comparison. If history is our guide, this series too won't be long for this world, but for now check out the first installment below, and here's the text version of the piece with links to all the claims inside.
