Olbermann: ‘Point Taken. I Have Been A Little Over The Top Lately. Sorry.’
Mediaite ^ | 1-23-10

Posted on 01/23/2010 12:57:41 PM PST by My Favorite Headache

Keith Olbermann’s recent transformation from a harsh but reasoned critic of the right, to a hyperbolic caricature of bluster was best exemplified by his recent run-down of Senator-elect Scott Brown. Many media critics noticed it, but most notable was Jon Stewart, who eviscerated his shtick Thursday night. Even Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher asked yesterday “Is Olbermann losing it?” So many of us were shocked by his response last night when he agreed with the critique, and even said “sorry.” Kudos!

For a guy who went to Cornell to learn how to shovel cow dung, he sure uses a lot of high falutin’ words.

“For a guy who went to Cornell to learn how to shovel cow dung, he sure uses a lot of high falutin’ words.”

He’s only trying to increase his vocabulary and make people think he’s more intelligent than he really is after Ann Coulter said something to the extent of ‘Olbermann’s entire vocabulary consists of 50 words.’ LOL!

My favorite Olberman role was when he played opposite Heath Ledger in "BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN"...

I wonder if the high-ups at MSNBC got too many complaints and “counseled” Olbermann?

That's my guess.

When the final conclusion is drawn KO works to the advantage of decent Americans...that vote the other way.

Hey let him say what he wants, who cares, I think many voters after listening decide they wouldn’t want to be governed by any friend of the mean spirited KO’s. Birds of a feather principle...

...so with that in mind I hope he has a long career in the bottom of the ratings barrel.
