A movement has begun to draft Keith Olbermann to run for the Senate in Connecticut.

The movement was launched by Daily Kos contributor Stranded Wind, who wrote on Saturday that Olbermann--who, after his abrupt departure from MSNBC, has some time on his hands-- is "just old enough, smart enough, polished enough, and has all of the other attributes that would make him a darned good Senator for the state of Connecticut."

The movement now has a Twitter and Facebook page. On the Facebook page, the people behind the effort say they are "just a bunch of fans who want to see Keith Olbermann run for Senate- this voice is too important to be silenced."
