Team Weigel rejoice – it didn’t take Dave Weigel very long to land on his feet after he resigned last week from The Washington Post.

Tonight at the end of Countdown, Keith Olbermann introduced new “MSNBC contributor” Dave Weigel.

Olbermann teased an announcement regarding Weigel throughout the program, and when he finally introduced his guest around 8:55pmET, he said, “We are very proud to announce is, as of like, I don’t know, 20 minutes ago, an MSNBC contributor. Welcome Dave…and you thought last week was fun, wait until you see what this week holds for you.”

This is a bit surprising, even for MSNBC. Weigel did post some comments on a pseudo-private chat board that can only be described as "hate speech", some really offensive stuff.

It's telling that while the comments are a dismissible offense for WaPo, they're apparently resume enhancing over at MSNBC.

A non-event, the usual boring and repulsive fare, dished out ad nauseum by the slimy propaganda channel of freak shows.

There are no depths that PMSDNC won’t sink below.

Surprising? he’s been gnawing on Maddow’s strap-on for the last couple of years with his fake debunk reports on the birthers.

They’re trying to compete with CNN that just hired the uber sleazy Spitzer. I’m waiting for someone to give Joren van der Sloot or O.J. Simpson their own shows.

Good to see that MSNBC has started to hire minorities. Hiring the black lesbian Dave Weigel is a good start.
