MSNBC Fires Keith Olbermann
By Wyatt Earp | January 22, 2011
There is nothing I would want more in this world than to spend a naked night alone with Christina Hendricks. A close second would be seeing the Flyers win another Stanley Cup. Come to think of it, perfection would be spending a naked night alone with Christina Hendricks while the Flyers are winning a Stanley Cup.
And as great as that would be,
MSNBC host Keith Olbermann announced Friday that he is leaving the network and has taped his last “Countdown” show.
MSNBC issued a statement that it had ended its contract with the host, with no further explanation. Olbermann hosted the network’s most popular show, but his combative liberal opinions often made him a target of critics. Olbermann did not explain why he was leaving.
Of course he didn’t! Why would he want to admit that his show was canceled and he was summarily fired? Personally, I think it was a long time coming, since there is no one in the media who spews as much hate and bile as Olbermann does on a nightly basis. MSNBC must have decided that Keith’s negatives outweighed his positives, and threw him out on his ear. I, for one, will be tap-dancing on his grave.
So come, have a drink. His bitter tears taste so sweet!
