Keith Olbermann Suspended Without Pay

Queef Olbermann, the personification of spittle-spewing liberal lunacy, has been suspended by MSNBC for arrogantly disregarding company rules:
Olbermann acknowledged to NBC that he donated $2,400 apiece to the campaigns of Kentucky Senate candidate Jack Conway and Arizona Reps. Raul Grivalva and Gabrielle Giffords.
NBC News prohibits its employees from working on, or donating to, political campaigns unless a special exception is granted by the news division president — effectively a ban. Olbermann's bosses did not find out about the donations until after they were made. The website Politico first reported the donations.
"I became aware of Keith's political contributions late last night," Phil Griffin, MSNBC's chief executive, said Friday. "Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay."
That Doberman would even want to support scum like Grijalva would be reason enough to have security escort him out of the building by the scruff of the neck at any sane network, but this is MSNBC. Could it be that the libs at WaPo are right about MSNBC wanting to pull back from the outer fringes of moonbattery? With the implosion of the Moonbat Messiah, it seems radical chic just doesn't sell anymore.
