It had to happen sooner or later:
The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing online media properties, announced today its acquisition of KeithOlbermann.com, expanding the company’s global reach into a new segment of the online political market. For more than six months The Daily Caller has been a recognized market leader in commentary about Keith Olbermann. Ruth Graham’s weekly Olbermann wrap-up, “We watch, because we’re paid to,” appears on The Daily Caller’s website each Friday.
“We plan to make The Daily Caller the one-stop online shop for Keith Olbermann commentary,” said Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson. “We will be THE Keith Olbermann superstore…”

Have I mentioned lately that I love my job?
Mediaite: “Expect an Olbermann response soon to Carlson, his former colleague at MSNBC, and Daily Caller.”
Hot Air: “The surprise here is less that Keith Olbermann didn’t think to do this himself, but that it took this long for his critics to think about it.”
Politico: “You may (or may not) have noticed that there’s been a bit of a feud running between MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and the Daily Caller, the website run by (former MSNBC’r) Tucker Carlson…”
Inside Cable News: “Does Olbermannwatch know about this?”
Redstate.com: “They’ve just set a very high bar for the rest of us to be Worst Person in the World this week. Sigh.”
Keith Olbermann on Twitter: “Regarding @TheDailyCaller and Keitholbermann.com: I hope whoever sold it to them got CASH.” And: “Also regarding @TheDailyCaller and KeithOlbermann.com – the law’s pretty clear on this, so, nice waste of money, Tuckie. #p2 #tcot” (Well, maybe he’ll come up with something better by tonight.)
New York: “MSNBC declined to tell us whether they were currently looking into legal remedies.”
Salon.com: “Tragically, Carlson has already reserved TuckerCarlson.com. But TuckerCarlson.net was there for the taking, and so we took it.”
Newsbusters: “There is only one hope for the future of the nation and that is for President Obama to personally step in and mediate between the two media personalities by throwing a wild kegger at Joe Biden’s place.”
Megan McArdle: “Whatever you may think of the Daily Caller’s purchase of Keitholbermann.com, I think you have to admit that Tucker Carlson can be pretty amusing when he puts his tongue firmly in his cheek.”
