Years from now, all of us will be able to answer the heartrending question "where were you when you heard Keith Olbermann was quitting?"
It came so suddenly, and so unexpectedly. One moment he's calling the Tea Party racist, or declaring Sarah Palin to be "The Worst Person In The World," and the next moment he's gone. Keith, we hardly knew ye.
Currently, there is no solid information about why Olbermann and MSNBC parted ways. There is absolutely no indication that Olbermann had a longstanding homosexual affair with mass-murderer Jared Loughner, nor is there anyone willing to go on record that MSNBC believed Olbermann to be a necrophiliac pedophile who hated minorities.
Although rumors abound, there is no confirmation that Olbermann was terminated for "enjoying himself" while looking at pictures of the First Lady's yams, nor should anyone believe - absent verifiable proof - that MSNBC forced him to leave because of drug, alcohol, and orphan abuse.
All we can say for sure at this point is that Keith Olbermann's journalistic voice has, for the time being, been stilled.
Which is proof that prayer works.
