MSNBC suspended Keith Olbermann indefinitely today after news broke that he had given the maximum allowable contribution to three Democrats without disclosing it to his viewers.
Now that’s some hope and change worth celebrating! See ya Keith. Don’t let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya!
Seriously – is anyone surprised? And really, he’s suspended because he didn’t follow the rules at NBC and get it approved to donate to the Dems. Which begs the question – would he have been granted permission? Well, of course he would. And he should have been. While I think he’s a disgusting person, he has the right to donate his money to whomever he wishes – just like you and I do. I find it curious that NBC has insisted that they should grant him approval for donating. But hey – he signed the contract and should have stuck to his agreement. So if he had donated to Republicans — or God forbid! Tea Party candidates! — would he have been fired?
