Olbermann begins to swirl the drain. #rsrh #moo

The ratings drain, that is. He went down the rhetorical, ethical, moral, and mental health drains a while back.

Yes, all at once. On a Zodiac. With the engine redlined.


Olbermann averaged 268,000 viewers last month in that sector. That’s just several thousand sets of those eyes more than Campbell Brown over on CNN. According to one count, Keith even finished in that time slow behind Nancy Grace. Nancy Grace!

And she’s on Headline News, Headline News, the repetitious TV channel the repetitious TV channel inflicted on all U.S. airline travelers within any boarding area around the clock so that when, at least an hour late, each person is finally crammed into plane seats between professional wrestlers, they actually feel relieved.

Welcome to the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, Gawker.

Oh, stop squirming. Having the chip put in doesn’t hurt *that* much.

So now you got yelled at, for real – and it doesn’t matter in the slightest that it’s by a rampaging buffoon who believes that Cheney had secret death squads.  Or that you actually agree with him that waterboarding really is torture.  Or anything else, at this point.

Keith, you ignorant slut.

Be flattered: we at RedState save that one for *special* stupid.

(H/T Ace of Spades) The previous two times were for Jim “Saddam paid my way!” McDermott and Jay “Blame the Michelle Whitey tape on the VRWC!” Carney, which should give you some clue of the special level of stuck on stupid that this designation requires. Luckily, Keith Olbermann is up to the challenge.

Yes, everybody sane can stop reading now. Continue reading Keith, you ignorant slut.
