In a shocking, shocking revelation unmatched since the discovery of gambling in the backroom of "Rick's Café Américain," alleged news channel MSNBC has suspended host Keith Olbermann for making secret cash donations to Democrat candidates.
Olbermann, best known for borderline-psychotic spit-flinging vein-bulging diatribes against conservatives, contributed the money to candidates he was "impartially" interviewing on his own show - which MSNBC president Phil Griffin said was an unacceptable breach of journalistic independence.
This is the same journalistic independence, by the way, that positions Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Ed "I'm going to torch this f*cking place" Schultz as impartial, center-of-the-road newscasters.
While it would be nice to think that Mr. Olbermann has made his last appearance on television, we fully expect him to be sullying the airwaves again soon. It's the only way MSNBC can stop him from posting rabid tweets saying that his former boss is "The Worst Person In The World."
