Just 14 months after he was dumped from MSNBC, Keith Olbermann has been fired again.

The liberal loudmouth was dismissed yesterday from his latest gig hosting a talk show at Al Gore’s Current TV network, the former vice president announced in a statement laced with bitterness toward Olbermann.

Olbermann is reaping what he sowed. I think America is tired of radical left wing hate speech and yearns to get back to civil discourse.

Just how big a jackass do you have to be to be a bigger jackass than Al Gore?

Now Olbermann might have to beg for his old job back at ESPN. He can argue every morning with Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless about Tim Tebow's Christianity and how it means Tebow is a really racist Republican in the locker room. :)

It’s not that as Olbermann was no more left wing than any of the other hosts on that “network”.

He just extremely difficult and obnoxious to work with.

It’s hard being a liberal.

Living in a world where you and everyone else that espouses your belief set are eternal victims of nameless, faceless forces.

You right wing nuts have no idea what it's like to be called a libtard loudmouth ... and fired from your second job in about a year ... by an idiot like Bonehead Gore ... on a nitwork that nobody watches ... and replaced by Client Number 9 ... so I would appreciate it if you would not enjoy this article!

Fox should give him a show and tell him to be conservative. Put him on after Gutfeld.

He’ll be able to get a job somewhere, probably radio, but he won’t be in the big league and he won’t be talking politics.

As for the reason Gore fired him, Olb is probably telling the truth. They need to save money ‘cause they don’t have any to pay him.

We don't have cable, so I've never watched Olbermann.

But that skit was hilarious, and prescient. “Folks” and Mitt and enough about cats for even the most ardent FReeper. It was worth the 8:42. LOL!

Maybe Soros can get him a gig on NPR where they're always looking for insightful moderates like him.

Proof, that, being a nitwit and a dork is a poor way to go thru life.

Yeah I remember when they had the clip on Hot Air and I loved it. Olby’s firing reminded me of it and I was pretty sure it was on Hulu!

And, as Homer Simpson once said, “Ha ha ha ha! It’s FUNNY
because it’s TRUE!”

Yup—I do have cable and even though I have a whole bunch of channels with expanded basic, Current is not one of them.
I get the message about “not authorized” if I land on it. I don’t think I’m
missing much and no, I prob. wouldn’t pay more to get whatever package offers it.

Either quit or was fired from WCVB-TV Boston: "He was asked to host the bowling show when Don Gillis was ill and he refused. He also demanded that the station provide him with a car service as he doesn't drive." (info via friend of mine)

I’m having a problem picking out Keithy in that pic. Let me guess - the second from the left, with the nice earrings?

His problem now is when you are a vulgar, lib loudmouth, and MSNBC and Current have already kicked your butt to the curb, where are you going to get a job?

Probably the Obama administration, make a great press secretary for Obammy.

It would list:

Ha! And for those in the Boston area, spot the Dick in that picture!
Actually the Dick is on the left, despite what one may think! :) (Weatherman Dick Albert, news anchor Natalie Jacobson,

I am hoping that Olbermann has to earn his living on some street corner with a hand organ and a monkey.

Of course no self respecting monkey would work with that idiot.

Well it could work if the monkey ran the hand organ and Olbermann pranced around doing a little dance..........Just trying to help Olbermann :^)
