This Time for Real: The Demise of Keith Olbermann

Posted by Dave Blount at January 21, 2011 11:16 PM

Last November it appeared the odious Keith Olbermann had finally been canned — but his indefinite suspension only lasted two days. But this time it appears to be for real:

Keith Olbermann, MSNBC's most successful and controversial personality for his outspoken liberal prime-time program, gave an abrupt goodbye to viewers and said Friday was his last show.
It was not immediately known if he quit or was fired. Olbermann did not address the question, and MSNBC said only that they and Olbermann had ended their contract. He signed a four-year contract two years ago.

The details aren't clear, but it appears that Olbermann is so obnoxious that not even MSNBC could stand him anymore.

Queef recently did a monologue in which he challenged the punditry to take a more civilized tone, while at the same time accusing conservatives of feeling "triumphant" over Gabrielle Giffords having been shot. Other lowlights of his execrable career include claiming that Pat Tillman was assassinated by American soldiers on behalf of George W. Bush.

Nothing could be too vile for Olbermann to sanctimoniously screech into a camera. The world will be a better place if he crawls back into his bathtub and stays there.

The circus act is over. Compliments of Air2air.
