I love Keith Olbermann. Absolutely adore him. We bleeding heart liberals needed a man to stand up to the likes of right wing morons like Sean Hannity (and fake independent morons like Bill O'Reilly).
Despite my love of Keith, I can still appreciate Ben Affleck's amazing performance. Really, this is up there with a perfectly delivered theatrical monologue. He starts out slow, but quickly gets into his groove.
A job well done, despite a few (understandable) line flubs due to the speed at which he had to read.
PS: SNL should endeavor to have more celebs like Ben on. He truly transformed the show and was a welcome change from teleprompter readers like Christopher Walken, and illiterates who can't even READ the teleprompter, like Michael Phelps.
This clip is long, and exhausting, and Affleck received a much deserved early ovation for his work. Seriously, that is talent. That is passion. SNL, have him back again soon.
