Keith was a big fish in a small pond, hope MSNBC apologizes and offers him his job back. He's missed by those of us who appreciate his humor, his honesty, and his ruthless lampooning of the Nutball Right.

And unlike the Right, he can laugh at himself or take a joke. And admit he "screwed up," which NO Rightie commentator would do. Limpballs only apologized for his vile insults toward Ms. Fluke because his accountants and network handlers told him to for monetary reasons. Unlike him, Olbermann has a sense of decency.

Keith is an embarrassment to generations of productive, fairminded American Democrats. But, so is CURRENT TV. It's just trying hard to be MSNBC and their just isn't an audience, or tolerance, for twice as many of those "canned" hateful rants.

YOU'RE FIRED!!! Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!!!!!

The idiot Olbermann was canned for the normal and not so normal reasons like complaining that his Limo Service, provided by current TV, had drivers that "talked to me" or "smelled bad" so he went through 10 Limo Services!

Bwahahahahahaha!

Good point. Keith could easily win in one of the feckless "blue states" where the citizens have proven to be too stupid to handle self government and consistently voted to assure that tomorrow will never be as good as yesterday for their own families.

I like the way this is captioned with a false headline. Not what Keith said, of course, and kind of ignores the humorous aspects of his comment. Letterman was the one who actually made the remark to Olbermann - "You're the $10 million chandelier?" - which was funny, too.

People on the far right, who've hated Keith for years, will naturally applaud this. But as harvey says above, Olbermann's able to laugh at himself as well as the right's own pretensions. That makes him better than them.

I'm sure he'd get a chuckle out of your insane hatred of him, and glee over his firing.

Needless to say, you're not going to support your wacky, gossipy claims about him. it's enough that he's a "liberal" for you to hate him. Right? ;)

Keith Olbermann 'switched car services eight times in a year and complained his drivers smelled and talked to him'

By Daily Mail Reporter
PUBLISHED: 1 April 2012

iberal talk show host Keith Olbermann changed car services eight times in the year he was at Current TV, complaining his chauffeurs 'smelled' and even 'talked to him' in the car, according to reports.

The left-leaning network founded by former presidential candidate Al Gore, fired Olbermann, it's biggest star and the host of its signature program, last week for breach of contract.

Sources close to the TV channel have begun leaking claims about Olbermann's behavior that give hints about why the host of 'Countdown' was given the ax.

Good post! I did miss him on MSNBC - too bad, considering he was bringing ratings, bought some top quality commentators with exceptional backgrounds, and started the medical charity, "Doctors Without Boarders", on his segment, that bought a huge amount of donor money in for those without any medical insurance.

When did any commentator on Fox ever do that?
