RedState's Caleb Howe tweets:
"At long last, sir, have you no job?"Keith Olberman, has been abruptly fired by MSNBC, apparently during Friday night's show. More here. Just last month he dubbed Bristol Palin the "Worst Person In The World" for her role as an ambassador for abstinence with the Candies Foundation, and as recently as Tuesday misrepresented a CNN poll in a ridiculous attempt to tie Sarah Palin to the Tucson shootings.
Olby has been a frequent critic of Bristol's mom beginning just days after she was announced as John McCain's running mate more than two years ago. On September 17 of 2008, he falsely accused Gov. Palin of cutting funding for the Special Olympics by half in Alaska. He has bashed the first woman to be both governor of Alaska and the Republican Party's vice presidential candidate as a "phony" and an "idiot," and has named her "Worst Person In The World" a number of times. The hysterical host also labeled Gov. Palin and other critics of ObamaCare "subhumans," "ghouls," and "fiends." After Sarah Palin called David Letterman out for making a crude sexual "joke" about her teenage daughter Willow, Olbermann called the governor "sanctimonious, holier than thou, exploitative, undignified, pedantic, childish, self-inflicting, insipid, backwards, embarrassing, over-reactive, overreaching" as well as a "delusional lunatic." Even after all of his slandering of Sarah, the not-too-bright Bathtub Boy couldn't seem to understand why she would not be itching to appear on the network of hate, referring to her as a coward and throwing in for bad measure "idiot-woman" and "idiot." And that's only the highlight reel.
Olby probably won't be an unemployment statistic for long. We fully expect Ariana Huffington and/or Tina Brown to offer Keif a job. Or perhaps CNN will snap him up to replace the failing Parker Spitzer program in prime time. On second thought, he could get a column or a blog at the Washington Post. He would be just the ticket for "the new era of civility" there...
Update: Andrew Breitbart makes it short and tweet:
