Keith Olbermann: 'I was once named Playgirl's sexiest newscaster'

Last night on Countdown, host Keith Olbermann suggested that he could take on Scott Brown in an election, noting that he was uniquely qualified:

“Hey, I can run against Scott Brown,” Olbermann joked,”. . . I was once named Playgirl's sexiest newscaster, almost like Cosmo. I worked at WCVB in Boston, where his wife works.”

Olbermann was mocking the popular US Senator over Rachel Maddow's earlier feud with Brown's campaign staff after they sent a letter over Maddow's 'rumored' run for his Senate seat.

Maddow ran a full page ad in the Boston Globe denying the rumor and challenged Brown to appear on her show.
