Keith Olbermann Returns from Suspension, Displays Unctuous Narcissism

I’m not really going to get into it anymore. You’ve all heard enough about Keith Olbermann the last two days, and the way the comments have gone, you probably have no more desire to talk about him. But in case you missed it, here was his response to his suspension, upon his return last night to “Countdown.”

Now, maybe I’m alone in this among liberals, and that’s OK. But, I just don’t know how this man went from the lone progressive voice that could actually be heard above all the partisan racket to self-obsessed, immodest, humorless paranoid nutcase. The man has completely Michael-Moore’d himself. With Olbermann, it’s no longer about the issue or the politics, it’s about Olbermann. There’s a lot of smug in the world, and I think that Olbermann may fully own 82 percent of it.
