Is Keith Olbermann The Leader Of The Resistance?

I’ve been wondering who, if anyone, will emerge as a the leader of the Resistance. Sure, I understand the theoretical benefits of horizontal organizational structures, “leaderless” revolutions, etc., but after my experience at Occupy Wall Street I’m more convinced than ever that if a movement is going to succeed over the long haul, it needs to capture the imagination of a great many people, and that requires a leader who embodies their values.

Enter Keith Olbermann with his brilliant series on GQ.com appropriately called The Resistance.

Above is an episode from earlier in December, in which Olbermann discusses something that is especially timely this weekend, i.e., Russian hacking.
