In Case You Missed It: When Olbermann Met Colbert

Thanks to Lisa De Moraes' The TV Column for the embed as I did in fact miss this enjoyable sit-down between smartly-spectacled bloviators Stephen Colbert and Keith Olbermann. Keith was on to plug the new Current TV reboot of  "Countdown" (premieres Mon, June 20th at 8pm EST) while Stephen happily went about his usual practice of busting balls.

I typically prefer Stewart's sarcasm to Colbert's caricature, but in this clip he's perfect, rendering Olbermann downright demure.

You know it's a worthwhile clip when the host informs his guest: "You're universally regarded as insane!"
