Hours after it was announced that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann was suspended indefinitely for violating NBC's rules concerning campaign contributions, his buddy Rachel Maddow came to his defense by pointing numerous fingers at Fox News personalities that have made their own political donations.
In fact, she concluded the show bearing her name Friday evening with a seven minute segment excoriating folks like Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, and Sarah Palin (video follows with commentary):
Regardless of her protestations, companies have different rules for their employees, and Olbermann violated NBC's.
As such, mounting a defense for her friend by pointing out that folks did the same thing at a rival network with a different employee code of conduct was irrelevant.
That a Rhodes scholar with a Ph.D. from Oxford doesn't understand this would normally be quite shocking.
However, what folks that have followed Maddow's career know full well is that her intellect and education are never allowed to interfere with her agenda.
Neither is logic.
Nice try, Rach.
