Keith Olbermann is doing a running Twitter commentary of tonight's State of the Union address, offering sardonic nuggets like these:

Word one of #SOTU at least 10 minutes away but full texts of Ryan, Bachmann responses to it already on web #WhatACountry

Just received my advance copy of #SOTU -unfortunately I bought a copy at 3:30 from a guy on 57th St along w/the script for The King's Speech.

Little known Pop Culture reference: Sen. Ben Nelson was indeed the model for Stimpy of "Ren And Stimpy" #SOTU.

Kerry, McCain, Lieberman just entered Chamber together. With his announcement, golly, who'll be running for Lieberman's seat? #SOTU

The latter is a nod to a campaign to draft Olbermann into the 2012 Senate race in Connecticut to succeed Lieberman.
