Keith Olbermann Complained To Current That Car Service Drivers ‘Smelled, Talked To Him’
Mediaite ^ | 3/31/12 | Tommy Christopher

Posted on 03/31/2012 3:10:17 PM PDT by jimbo123

On the heels of Countdown host Keith Olbermann‘s firing from Current TV, the network and sources close to it have been quick to buttress their case for the dismissal with details of the temperamental star’s antics. One such source tells Mediaite, among other things, that Olbermann went through 8 different car services (he doesn’t drive), and complained to the network that some of the drivers “smelled,” and “talked to him,”

-snip-

Olbermann plans to counter Current’s PR offensive with an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Tuesday

You would think that a tolerant limousine liberal like Olbermann would be sensitive to the bathing habits and deodorant usage beliefs of muslim car service drivers.

Keith Olbermann would always smell when he talked to me on the TV, that’s why I fired him and changed channels. But that was a long time ago.

Olbermann and Gore ripping each other apart in public and in the courtroom.

It's a win-win.

Outside of Manhattan Liberals, who doesn't drive?

Olbermann used to do Sports in Los Angeles. Everybody here drives.

Maybe he just prefers to the “Driven” by little people who know their place and don't talk or smell like a Kardashian.

In Olbermann’s case, it's like “Driving Mr. Bat Shit Crazy”.

Memo to Olberman:

They are called “The Unwashed”. They are the little people you pretend to speak for.

They smell because they work hard and sweat all day driving assholes like you around in luxury.

It's called the Ted Kennedy Syndrome (actually, you can pretty much name it after any of the Kennedys). Someone who adamantly professes to care about people- especially the poor and downtrodden. Yet, when they deal with actual flesh and blood human beings in their daily lives, they treat them like sh!t.

Keith was just confused. The truth is that he stunk, and he was talking to himself. I hope this clears this little matter up.

I thought that too. Who doesn’t drive? Maybe he could never pass the test.

Whatever.

I wonder how someone who doesn’t drive can have valid opinions of American culture.

Sounds like why Harry Reid used our money to build the visitor center so that he no longer has to smell or talk to the people while he’s steeling their money and enslaving their children in a lifetime of debt.

He strikes me as the kind of guy who changes clothes
three times a day, and takes a shower each time.
Probably never wears the same shirt more than three
hours.

Stalin often purged fellow commies, and even erased them from group photos.

This is the same thing, Gore can get another commie moron on his propaganda outlet for a LOT less money.

With his nose up obama’s ASS 24/7, one would suppose olberman’s sense of smell wouldn’t be affected much by anything.

I seem to recall he fell and hit his head (in NYC) and from then on, suffered from seizures.

Looks like the demented Olberman was Nikolai Yezhov'd by Gore and replaced with an even lower form of pond scum.

Spitzer is probably getting paid in free passes to the Bunny Ranch in Vegas.

More likely it's their diet heavy on lamb/mutton and the spices used to kill the stench to make it edible ~ e.g. thyme? Used to use it here to cover up the odor of death ~ still used in the rest of the world for that.

It's not the garlic ~ it's the sheep!
