It's vacation time for the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. Just in time for him to run away from any responsibility for the falsehoods he spread about the Assange rape accusations. And no, that hasn't died down at all. As Olbermahn today ended his self-exile for Twitter (after, what, two whole days?), he spewed out a grand announcement. And what did it do? It just made matters worse:
Given the time to compose a calm, reasoned response, Olbermann elected to use a single random tweet to tar the #MooreAndMe protest as violent, accuse its members of financial coercion, attack #MooreAndMe creator Sady Doyle for smoking cigarettes, and finally, to ignore the central issues in this brouhaha. Someone should gently suggest to Olbermann that when you're already in a hole, stop digging.
Olby got way up on his high horse and chose, out of thousands of tweets, one that he pointed to with sham outrage. The tweeter had told him: 'Kill yourself'. Oh the horrors, and Keithy poured it on thick. Why, now people are sending him 'death threats'!! But wait. Haven't we heard that somewhere before. Now let's see, where was it? Oh yeah...
Olbermann's antagonists, who asked not to be named, repeatedly claimed in their June 8 E-mails that dead Al Qaeda terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was Olbermann's "hero," prompting the television star to advise: "Hey, save the oxygen for somebody whose brain can use it. Kill yourself."
They just don't make Olbypocrisy any thicker than that. Keep track of the twitter action here, and enjoy a blessed break from the horrors of Olbermann for, we hope, two full weeks. Comments are open!
