Piers is the new Larry King.
Keith is the new black(listed).
Keith Olbermann. “Just because it would really annoy him. I think he’s a great broadcaster, but I know he gets wound up very easily. It’s not a lifetime ban, it’s a temporary ban, designed to confuse and bemuse him, and hopefully engender a violent reaction.”
What a card. How edgy. How “I need lots of hype, so pleaseohplease watch my show before they replace me” of him.
You know what would really annoy Keith? Going on Morgan’s show. Or not, since I can’t speak for Keith, but after reading that bit of intentional headline grabbing, if I were Keith, that’s how I’d feel.
As for confusing Keith, when exactly has that ever happened? In fact, thinking back, KO is about the least confused commentator I can think of, other than Rachel Maddow.
As for engendering a violent reaction, methinks after the initial ratings bounce subsides, he’ll realize he was projecting.
Added: Or maybe this is all a big joke, because, come on, he can’t be serious. If that’s the case, he might want to obtain a laugh track. He’ll need it.
