Keith Olbermann compares himself to a household fixture (but not the one you’re thinking)

Font Size:

It was Creepfest 2012 last night as Olby paid a visit to his pal David Letterman. The two liberal favorites kept the intern talk off-camera, but there was plenty of unintentional humor anyway.

Associated Press:

Keith Olbermann said he “screwed up” by taking a job with Current TV, but he plans to make the channel pay for firing him.

In Olbermann’s first TV interview since he was dismissed last week by Current, he was asked by David Letterman to assess his chances of getting any money due him…

“It’s my fault that it didn’t succeed in the sense that I didn’t think the whole thing through. I didn’t say, ‘You know, if you buy a $10 million chandelier, you should have a house to put it in. Just walking around with a $10 million chandelier isn’t going to do anybody a lot of good, and it’s not going to do any good to the chandelier.”

Keith isn’t nearly bright or multifaceted enough to be a chandelier, but he’s just about wide enough.


Two other ways Keith is like a chandelier: It’s fun to watch him crash, and most people manage just fine without him in their homes.

By the way, Keith, it should be easy to keep track of where you’re working right now. Nowhere.

Update: Also, you can’t fit a chandelier in a limousine.
