Keith Olbermann Snares Exclusive Interview With Aqua Buddha (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Aug 13th 2010 1:30PM
Rand Paul found himself in the middle of controversy this week when GQ magazine printed a story alleging that, as a Baylor University student 27 years ago, the Senate candidate from Kentucky had kidnapped a woman, taken her to a river and forced her to worship a deity called Aqua Buddha.

The story lost a bit of its punch when the woman involved admitted that when she said "kidnapped" she didn't mean the against-her-will kind of kidnapped.

Nevertheless, Keith Olbermann pulled quite a journalistic coup when he was able to get the first-ever interview with Aqua Buddha on 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann' (weeknights, 8PM ET on MSNBC.)

Aqua Buddha came to Keith live from an indoor pool at a Courtyard Marriott, and, looking suspiciously like a regular man with a snorkel, he answered questions such as, "What's the difference between Aqua Buddhism and regular Buddhism?"

The answer: "Buddhism is religion of great contemplation," explained the false idol. "Aqua Buddhism is the exact opposite. We face the horrors of life head on."

The more you know.
