Kick ‘em when they’re down: Keith Olbermann gets a smackdown

Stuart Schwartz writing for American Thinker has a must read article called “The Fat Lady Sings For Keith Olbermann”.  Schwartz is merciless in his telling of how and why Keith Olbermann (and MSNBC too) are headed the way of the Doo Doo.

Here is a sample of the slicing and dicing Schwartz delivers to Olbermann: 
"It ain't over until the fat lady sings." 
The fat lady is doing more than singing for Keith Olbermann. And, like most of the other women in the life of MS-NBC's premiere leftist sexist, she's not interested in dating him. Rather, she merely wishes to see his well-padded bottom fade into the distance. 
In sports broadcasting, where Olbermann worked for twenty years, the phrase -- picked up from opera -- signifies the end of the game, the last minutes when hope of revival is past and fans head for the exits. The viewers of "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" have been heading for the exits for the past year as part of a general exodus from MS-NBC. 
Ouch! That’s just for starters too!

What makes this piece even better is that it comes just as Fox News grabs the top 13 cable news programs for the 5th month in a row. Read the whole story then catch a clip of Olbermann so you can laugh your ass off.

If the New York Times has more layoffs, maybe MicroSoft/NBC will have room for Tom Friedman.

Fantastic piece by Schwarz. Thanks for the heads-up.
