This is an interesting side to Keith Olbermann.
The former Countdown host admitted that he "screwed up" when it came to his dismissal from Current TV while on The Late Show With David Letterman.
"I screwed up really big on this. Let's just start there. I thought we could do this. It's my fault that it didn't succeed in the sense that I didn't think the whole thing through," he said.
"I didn't say, 'You know, if you buy a $10 million chandelier, you should have a house to put it in. Just walking around with a $10 million chandelier isn't going to do anybody a lot of good, and it's not going to do any good to the chandelier.
"And then it turned out we didn't have a lot to put the house on to put the chandelier in, or a building permit, and I, I should have known that. And it is, it is my fault at heart."
"You're the chandelier?" Letterman asked. "I'm the chandelier," Olbermann responded.

“Its takes two people to tell a good lie.. the liar and the listener”- Keith Olberman..
More like chandi-queer.
How they pay this man millions at any level is beyond me. We live in a weird world. Astonishing! Lowest ratings ever.
Most contorted analogy since...
"If a frog had side pockets, he'd carry a hand gun."
I feel so sorry for Mr. Olbermann, this Olympian of the soul, so excellent in spririt and in mind, condemned by some quirk of cruel and unwitting fate to wander ever in this dull sublunary vale of decay and sin. For truly it is written, he is a legend in his own mind.
Interviewer: So, Mr. Olbermann, why did you leave your last job?
Keith: That's okay, you don't have to call me Mr. Olbermann, but please only talk to my agent.
Interviewer: Ah, umm, excuse me?
Keith: Granted. Just this once. You're just like my last boss. He insisted on talking directly to me, rather than through my minions. What a jerk. I was way too good for that place. It was like working with a bunch of drunk monkeys, but with worse breath and hygiene.
Keith: Please don't interrupt! You're like those drivers they gave me. They had the temerity to look upon my person! And speak! In my presence!
Interviewer: I think we can wrap this up...
Keith: Silence! Did I give thee leave to speak, foul knave! Dost thou wish to be cast into mine dudgeon or shall I have thee beheaded? Beheading is too good for thee! Drawn and quartered for such scum as thou!
Interviewer: Betty, get security! Quick!
Keith: Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them.
Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them.
Over at HD Net, Dan Rather is feeling really really good. He has been replaced as the most disgraced news guy in history by Kieth.
It is just like Jimmy gloating over the rotten President that is Obama
At least he know knows whos fault it is—His own! Maybe there is hope. Lets see what Liberal media will spot him a new gig.
