See? Everybody wants to

Rachel Maddow, host of the curiously named The Rachel Maddow Show, caused quite a stir by getting a Tea Party/Republican/Libertarian man-of-the-hour type named Paul Rand Rand Paul to babble about how the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was wrong. Rand Paul was trying to make a point about "big goverment overreaching", but probably should have picked a different example - maybe one that didn't make him look like a stupid racist idiot. He did seem to not be able to help himself.

Now, I told you that story to tell you this one...

As Keith Olbermann did a lead in to Maddow and they did a little chit chat, Olbermann referenced her Rand Paul interview and the media reaction, and teased Maddow, saying, "So, are you able to get anyone to appear on your show anymore?"

Maddow laughed and replied, "No. I'm going to just be here all myself now," and said something along the lines of having to talk to herself.

She held up her hand and did a little "ventriloquist voice" thing while her hand made mouth movements.

Then Olbermann did the same.

And they laughed.

I'm not saying that they were good - but it just shows how ventriloquism and politics are potentially a great pairing. You see that, don't you?

So - I'm offering Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow primetime slots of their choice on the Vent Channel. Just  because Conan O'Brien blew me off doesn't mean this isn't a great offer to be the signature show on the network.

And Rachel - remember how complemented you felt when you were one of the first 5 "faces that belong on a ventriloquist dummy"?  There's more feel goods where that came from, my friend. Lots more.

I'll teach you better ventiloquism technique... lend you Max, the monkey puppet...

What do you say?

Keith - same for you. Do I have your attention? Please? There may be a spot on the list for you, too. Think about the honor.

Just know - this is not just a dream plan.
