Olbermann faces tough job market
Variety ^ | 4/1/12 | CYNTHIA LITTLETON

Posted on 04/01/2012 10:47:46 AM PDT by jimbo123

Wanted: Left-leaning political commentator with on-air talent immense enough to excuse workplace tensions that seem to follow him at every turn.

It's a job description Keith Olbermann isn't likely to see anytime soon. And yet every national news operation may be asking itself right now whether he's worth taking a chance on in the wake of his dismissal Friday from Current TV.

Perhaps Congress should get involved. You know, craft some new laws or something.

KO is the perfect fit for the New Fox News. He could be a panelist on Special Report, would fit right in with the new NY Times panelist they have.

Roger A said they were moving away from Beck and Palin because they labeled them(I paraphrase)

Was insulting to lump the wonderful Sarah Palin in with Beck, but that`s what he said.

Keith Ob..... would be perfect fit for Fox News

Within a month, I predict that we get reports that Kieth is wandering around the streets of Manhattan in his bathrobe with a cardboard box TV over his head ranting gibberish.

I am not so sure. If the “news” about politicians in the New York-New Jersey-Connecticut tri-state area is accurate, there would appear to be quite a lucrative career awaiting homopresstitutes.

Someday Keith is going to be standing in Times Square or outside the Lincoln Tunnel in 90 degree heat wearing a tattered overcoat, unkempt hair, a bottle of Thunderbird in his hand and a full beard screaming obscenities at the world.

I don't know. I think "progressives" have a lot of a-hole openings.

Watching the Left implode one lunatic at a time is at least some consolation for seeing RINO Corporate hire Willard as the new store manager............

What will Obermann do?
1. Write a book—publishers will pay him a bundle.
2. Work for the New York Times as a writer.
3. Run for public office.
4. Turn right and work for Fox News.
5. Go back to sports.
6. Sulk for a while—a year or so—until he’s broke. Eat some humble pie and go back at a reduced rate to MSNBC.

Go back to Buffalo as a sportscaster... that city (my place of birth and home for my first 18 years) is sadly, very supportive of losers.
