— Open Blog Michael Calderone at Politico (I know, I know) reports that Keith Olbermann made SNL guest host Surviving Christmas superstar Ben Affleck uncomfortable this afternoon by barging into the studios to watch the Phantoms ingenue rehearse what Calderone describes as a "savage" skit about Rachel Maddow's unhinged opening act.
Commenting on the skit through a spokesman, the mediocre sportscaster who doesn't realize that he's a Ted Baxter parody remarked:
Im not Sarah Palin, Olbermann said. I know how valuable it is to me. And its funny."What's the what now? Excuse me, but what the flying Hell does that even mean? Is he talking about the same Sarah Palin who personally participated in two SNL sketches and proved long ago that she has a sense of humor about herself?
Seriously, what does that mean? Is the preening, large-assed host so obsessively deranged when it comes to Governor Palin that he simply can't help but talk about her even when doing so makes no sense?
Go on over to Politico to get some details on how the SNL intends to portray Olbermann in this skit. It actually sounds like it might be mean and funny.
And inspired by the desire to make this gibbering manchild cry bitter tears on Tuesday evening, this open blogger is off to Pennsylvania!
More comfortable with Cheetos and some pR0n. The orange washes off. Politico leaves me funky.

Is this guy too full of himself or what?

What in the fuck does that mean? I am usually good at decoding idiocy, but this asshat, as Keegan michael kay would say, "he took it to a ho, nuva, levo."

Isn't McCain supposed to appear on SNL too?
That'll boost the ratings
I hear the Olbermann career flushing in 5 .. 4 .. 3 .. 2 .. 1
Is that a tinkle down Matthews' leg?

McCain goes on SNL and gets paid AFTRA union scale for the gig.
It's hard to imagine a better illustration of the difference between the two.

Olbermann is such a pantie-waist. Did Sarah Palin barge in on any skit rehearsals about her?
Olbermann is a self-absorbed, insecure moron. He and Matthews needs to retire to reporting for the Berlin (New Hampshire) Daily Sun.
May you freeze your asses off, idiots!

I think if they ever make a series of movies about those Reader's Digest articles, "I am Joe's [organ]" which explained the functions of the human body, Keith Olberman would be a natural for the anus.
Of course, he would also be a natural for the rectum, so they'd have to schedule a few other organs in between those two, otherwise viewers would say, "Hey, haven't we seen this asshole before?"

Choke on his own bile, more likely. What a stupid fucking comment.

He's spinning about like the robot guy in Alien.
Massive mental overload at seeing Ben Affleck make nasty fun of him, perhaps the realization he has gone too far and is a total douchewad.
Or maybe his brain was freaked out by getting turned down by Rachel Maddow earlier in the day for a date.

Put him and the rest of MSNBC out to pasture.

Olbamamann barged in because he wanted to laugh at himself? I don't think so..
I would put money on it that he barged in, got very pissed off at how he was being portrayed, complained and threatened to call the president of NBC..
Once they told him to pound sand, he spins it publicly that he can laugh at himself, not like Sarah...

That's our boy, Keith. Keep this up and you may someday be a competent newsreader.
