Here's today's news, delivered to you straight from our invisible plane...
Just because we had mostly forgotten about Keith Olbermann, that doesn't mean we forgot what his TV show was called.
Today we are once again reminded that cable television personalities never go away, they just change channels.
During last Friday's Countdown with Keith Olbermann telecast, Olbermann abruptly announced that, after eight years his show was ending that night, as was his relationship with MSNBC. Nobody knows exactly what happened there or why (yet), and I'm in no position to speculate. I will, however, miss the show and Olbermann's over-the-top, ridiculously entertaining and yes, sometimes even insightful, comments on how horrifying all the people in this world are. So I've decided to eulogize Countdown the best way I know how -- with a look back at Ben Affleck's reactionary, egomaniacal, awesome cat-lover version on SNL.
