Last night the shrieking harpie in horn-rimmed glasses announced he was calling it quits.
Keith Olbermann will no longer broadcast his bizarre, spittle-flying YouTube screeds for GQ anymore.
Not since Corky’s Cavalcade of Disco ended its long-time run on public access has America been so heartbroken.
Okay, I made up that part.
And, no. I doubt Keith is calling it quits to avoid a sexual harassment scandal. Although, given the timing, I’m not surprised if you think that.
[Though, in the interests of full disclosure, I’m wondering if that’s why Luis Gutierrez is retiring.]
No, I think it’s more likely that Olbermann’s “employer” GQ gave him the old heave-ho.
Last week, after Twitter announced their “deverifying” of accounts, the most frequent counter-argument against them was the fact that this foul-mouthed, unhinged lunatic still had a verified blue checkmark.
As a result, Keith’s special brand of crazy was getting more attention than usual.
And I’m thinking GQ finally dropped his crazy ass to spare what little reputation they have left.
But that’s just conjecture on my part.
It’s equally possible that Keith’s psychiatrist decided that this particular form of therapy was only making his patient worse.
And, now, instead of shrieking at a camera in some creepy studio, he’ll just be given an anger bat, a pudding cup and an extra dose of Thorazine.
Over the last two decades, we’ve watched the sad, downward spiral of Keith Olbermann’s career.
And every time we think it just can’t spiral any lower – or any sadder — Keith proves us wrong.
So who knows where he’ll end up next. Maybe a public access show filmed in Kathy Griffin’s bathroom.
After all, if his next stop isn’t a padded cell somewhere, the bottom’s the limit.
