Keith Olbermann is the worst
It’s funny that the man whose TV show used to feature a “Worst Person in the World” segment every night is himself one of the worst people in the world. I am of course speaking of Keith Olbermann, who just last week was fired from Al Gore’s uber-liberal/wildly depressing television network Current TV for being too difficult to work with.
Indeed, the best part of the story is that Olbermann was so obnoxious that he is being replaced with Famous Whore-patronizer/disgraced former NY Govenor Eliot Spitzer because I guess Current TV wanted to be associated with a less unsavory character than Olbermann.
Let’s take a minute though to really reflect on how amazingly unpleasant Olbermann must have been to work with; being thrown off of Current TV for being too caustic and obnoxious is like being thrown out of the Oberlin College Freedom for Palestine Club for being, well, too caustic and obnoxious. Now, as a BIG fan of Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly I’m not saying there isn’t a place in our media for such entertaining retardery (that’s a word I just made up can you tell?), but Hannity and O’Reilly are at least good at it. Olbermann is smart but petulant like a child, where as Bill O’Reilly is kinda fun with the reasoning skills/intellect of a child. You can guess which one is makes for better TV.
So let’s all pray that no one offers Olbermann another job until he changes his ways. Really if MSNBC and Current TV can’t deal with you the only lower rung on the ladder would be, like, hosting a webchat show on the Huffington Post. After that it’s straight to fetish porn! Yeah, I think that’s probably the best career trajectory for this douche.
