Goodbye to One of the World’s Worst People

Keith Olbermann abruptly parted company with MSNBC tonight. Apparently his contract was either canceled or not renewed by the network, but the circumstances of his departure are not yet clear. Olbermann was one of the great haters in the media, but that wasn’t what caused his downfall: he is being replaced by Lawrence O’Donnell, one of the few people in America who is arguably more hateful than Olbermann.
My only regret, with respect to Olbermann’s MSNBC tenure, is that I never made it past runner-up on his Worst Person in the World feature.
