MSNBC Suspends Olbermann

Of all the political analysts (if you can call them that) out there blowing hot air and entertaining the masses with their overdone rhetoric and biased, "don't let the facts get in the way of a good story," reporting, the worst of the worst, in my not so humble opinion, has always been Keith Olbermann.  His pompous, condescending attitude and approach has always rubbed me the wrong way, so much so that when NBC started using him in the pre-game show for Sunday Night Football, I stopped watching.  Well, okay, I still watched the game, but I refused to turn it to NBC until the actual game started.  And this has nothing at all to do with my being strongly opposed to many of Olbermann's liberal views.  It's just him.  His attitude.  His smugness.  His condescension.  I have never understood how liberals could find him appealing.  In the same way, I can't figure out what in the world conservatives find appealing about the likes of Glenn Beck, who makes a living butchering history and sobbing like a baby, or Bill O'Reilly, who makes a living throwing fits and bullying guests.  But, hey, that's just me.  Anyway, back to Olbermann.  MSNBC announced today that he is being suspended indefinitely without pay because, get this, he donated funds to the campaigns of three different Democratic candidates during this latest political season.  Say it ain't so!  Not Keith Olbermann!  Not after all the woeful lamentations about those on the other side of the political aisle doing this very thing.  Not after all the years of telling the world how far above the conservatives he was on the ethical ladder.  Something about a pot and black kettle comes to mind.  But, of course, something tells me that Mr. Olbermann will be back in the saddle soon, if not on MSNBC, somewhere else, and I'm sure he'll come up with a fantastic way to spin this little "oops!" in his favor, and begin informing us about "America's Worst" once again.  We'll see.  You can read about this here
