COMMENTARY

Every night at 8 p.m. on MSNBC, Keith Olbermann awards his daily pick for "Worst Person in the World." Some contenders are lucky — or unlucky —enough to be nominated more than once.

The bronze goes to Tim Brosnan, Executive Vice President of Major League Baseball, today rejecting the bid to keep the package out of-town-games on cable television and satellite, rather than shifting it exclusively to satellite...

As we all know, no business strategy works quite as well as refusing to sell your product to the customers who want to buy it from you.

Our runner-up tonight: Sean Hannity of Fox Noise.

Carrying the wrong pail of water. Explaining to his crowd last night that about Karl Rove and Harriet Miers and the Justice Department scandal, President Bush had made an offer to the Senate -- quoting Mr. Hannity now -- "allowing top aides to testify privately, under oath..."

Uhh... no... that's kinda the point. All the president has offered to do is allow his top aides to not testify, privately, not under oath, not even transcribed.

Sean, Sean, Sean!

You're reading from next week's script!

But our winners: Naval Air Training Command in Corpus Christi, Texas, which has added to its staff, effective next month, Navy Captain Lisa Nowak. She’s the astronaut fired by NASA after she drove to Florida, wearing adult diapers, armed with a BB gun, a steel mallet, a knife, rubber tubing and a plan to either kidnap or kill a romantic rival for another astronaut.

What will Captain Nowak be doing for Naval Air Training Command? Helping to develop curriculum and training programs for the Navy. Presumably the ones involving B-B guns, steel mallets, knives, rubber tubing, and plans for either kidnapping or killing romantic rivals!

Naval Air Training Command at Corpus Christi, Texas is today's Worst Persons In The World.
