Car Pay Diem!

I just have to make note of this sly pun in a lower-third on tonight's Countdown, titling his #4 story on the auto bailout saga.
One of the most unsung virtues of Keith Olbermann's show are those punny captions at the bottom of the screen titling the segments, known in the trade as "lower-thirds" (lower-third of the screen.) They're reason enough to make his show appointment viewing - fans of the Rocky & Bullwinkle Show would all agree.
This one was right up there, along with "Shiite Storm."
Not a policy-based comment this - just a nod and a tout to some under-appreciated humor.
