Last Night’s TV: Keith Olbermann Doesn’t Break Bread on Passover, Rachel Maddow and More

Keith Olbermann can be quite the nitpicker, forever needling Republicans for minor misspeaks and double-talk. Of course, sometimes they deserve it, as when, on last night’s Countdown, he helpfully explained to California Senate hopeful Carly Fiorina the meaning of Passover. Hint: it has nothing to do with breaking bread.

Meanwhile over on The Rachel Maddow Show, the host is still denying that she’s planning to run against Scott Brown for his Massachusetts Senate seat, despite protestations from the opposition. Wouldn’t it be funny if all of Mr. Brown’s cajoling actually caused Ms. Maddow to enter the race?

And finally, Stephen Colbert reacted to the shocking news about Ricky Martin’s sexual preference. Though, frankly, he still seemed a bit skeptical.
