Department of Redundancy Department: Keith Olbermann Fired Again, Replaced by Eliot Spitzer
Current TV said Friday afternoon that it had terminated the contract of its lead anchor, Keith Olbermann, scarcely a year after he was hired to reboot the fledgling channel in his progressive political image.In a continuing pattern of behavior that reminds one of Olbermann's role model, barack obama, little Keithie blamed his firing on everyone but himself, just as he did in his previous dismissals.
The cable channel indicated that he had failed to honor the terms of his five-year, $50 million contract, giving the channel the right to terminate it. Starting Friday night, the former
prostitute-frequenting Client Number NineNew York Gov. Eliot L. Spitzer will take over Mr. Olbermann’s 8 p.m. time slot.
That brings to mind a quote from my favorite philosopher, Homer Simpson:
"How come things that happen to stupid people keep happening to me?"
