DUmmie FUnnies 04-01-12 (Olbermann hired by Fox News, DUmmies torn)
DUmmie FUnnies | April 1, 2012 | DUmmies and Charles Henrickson

Posted on 04/01/2012 8:26:29 PM PDT by Charles Henrickson

No, I'm kidding. April Fools. Keefie is still fired. Oh, haven't you heard? Keith Olbermann was fired AGAIN, this time by Current TV, Algore's little network that nobody watches. And Keef now is vowing to take Algore to court. And so I'm NOT kidding about the DUmmies being torn. I mean, Olbie vs. Algore? What's a progressive to do?

Multiple threads on this at the DUmp, more people commenting than probably watched his show. We'll start with this THREAD, "Gored: Olbermann Out at Current," and take it from there.

So let us keep Current with KO and his fans and critics, in Bolshevik Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, pondering how bad Current TV must be when Cenk Uygur is now your biggest star, is in the [brackets]:

Gored: Olbermann Out at Current

[Algore is now the Worst Person in the World.]

Keith Olbermann has been fired by Current TV, and replaced by Eliot Spitzer.

[Puttin' on the Spitz. Anthony Weiner was unavailable.]

Olbermann was a monumental egomaniac and ass.

[And those are his good points.]

Probably Keith needs to run his own network.

[He'd probably end up firing himself.]

Rachel Maddow's show is so much better. . . .

[Rachel is the man!]

I like Keith a lot and will look for him on the web.

[If he tries to get a job here at DUmmie FUnnies, we'll start him out by making him a gofer for Li'l Beaver.]

CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!! Keith was the ONLY reason i watched current tv.

[CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!! You were his ONLY viewer.]

One day Keith will learn how not to alienate his employers.

[The Day When Everything Finally Changed.]

I think he doesn't work/play well with others, and he's overly-impressed with his own importance. Al Gore doesn't need that sh*t.

[An Inconvenient Keith.]

How much experience does Al Gore have in broadcast journalism?

[Well, he did invent the Internet. . . . CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now he'll probably keep him out of THAT!]

@KeithOlbermann on Twitter right fuggin' now!

[Did Anthony Weiner teach him how to tweet pictures?]

ripping Al Gore a new one.

[There is now a hole in Algore's ozone layer.]

I will not watch Current TV again!

[Current's ratings just dropped by 20%.]

I'm finished with Current as well.

[40%.]

He speaks truth to power.

[Drink!]

He should have been made Emperor of the Universe and been given a solid gold Cadillac.

[OK, so Keith's contract demands were a little high. . . .]

Eliot Spitzer would take Countdown’s 8 p.m. timeslot effective immediately.

[Client 9, now at 8.]

And Rush still has a job.

[It's not a Fluke.]

Before Olbermann, Current's standard fare as far as programming is concerned consisted of obscure documentaries about goatherders in Khazakstan and the like.

[Maybe Keith can get a job as a goatherder in Kazakhstan. He can count down the goats.]

It’s hard to know whom to root for in the coming legal showdown between Keith Olbermann and Al Gore, the former a widely reviled liberal polemicist who cannot hold a job in cable TV and the latter a failed presidential candidate who launched a cable network in 2005 seemingly just for the fun of running it into the ground.

[Hee! Hee!]

He might go the online rout and simply control his own show. Heck why not radio.

[Air America beckons.]

Can someone fire Ed Schultz next?

[Would anyone know the difference?]

I would watch Charles M. Blow. Seriously. Give that guy his own show.

[The Blow Show? No.]

My guess on KO's next TV gig... reading the weather. I'm thinking someplace like Boise or Portland.

[How about the ShamWow gig? I heard they might have an opening.]

Well, I don't think he's tried Al-Jazeera or Pravda yet.

[He did MSNBC. That's close enough.]

Maybe we'll see him on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice?

[Keith already hears "You're fired!" in his sleep.]

Can we get Keith to replace Biden on the ticket?

[OBAMA/OLBERMANN 2012
O + O = 0]

There's no more networks. CNN isn't going to take him. Bridges have been burned with MSNBC and Current. Where else is he going to go?

[The Oprah Network. New host of the Rosie Show.]

Most of America doesn't give a sh*t what happens to him.

[One Kewpie Doll, coming up! Congratulations, DUmmie tularetom!

He can go be the top TV personality in Bumf*ck Egypt as far as I'm concerned.

[Bumf*ck called. There are no openings.]

He's pretty much radioactive right now.

[He's pretty much radio-and-TV-inactive right now.]

Perhaps he could get a job less stressful like designing t-shirts or maybe he could help with the signs at OWS protests.

[Maybe he and Pitt could go Occupy someplace. Maybe co-author a book with Pitt.]

Currant TV. . . .

[I hear you can get that on your BlackBerry. Unless the signal is jammed.]

Dang. How does Rove pull this stuff off???

[Mind rays.]

I love Keith Olbermann.

[Is that you, Keith Olbermann?]

But will he feature the "worst goat in the world" segments daily, and what happens once he offends all of the goats eventually?

Okay. Here is my broken pinkie update. Today they put a new splint on it but now my hand is more tightly bound up making typing more difficult. Hand surgery on April 11 and will have a hand cast after that for a few weeks so less DUFUs until later. I type using all fingers so hunt and peck is new to me.

Keef should team up with Pitt and Scott Ritter and Jason Leopold and form a new organization. Call it "TruthOutOfWork"?

You're right that it's not your average illiterate DUmmie. But it's not a Lousy Freeper Troll, either. It's a quote from someone named Rebecca Dana, who writes for the Daily Beast.

Oh, it was attributed. DUmmie gateley intro'ed the article like this: "Keith Olbermann will celebrate unemployment by going on David Letterman on Tuesday night. Will it kick off a successful Glenn Beck-style postnetwork TV career, or be his first step toward obscurity? The Daily Beast’s Rebecca Dana examines whether Olbermann’s departure from Current TV will be his ruin or salvation."

Here's the link to that DU THREAD, "Will Keith Olbermann’s Firing Be His Salvation?"

I was going to mention the same thing except....

It’s hard to know whom to root for in the coming legal showdown...

I would guess that the author was trying really, really hard to sound smart using that whom instead of the usual who but shouldn't it really be
