Keith ("Who?") Olbermann: I Believe The French, Lance Armstrong Juiced

He bases this on the fact that Armstrong made a commercial during a strike by commercial-actors, despite the fact that commercial-actors had given celebrity atheletes permission to make commercials during this time.

Lance's pitiful excuse at the time? Well, gee, merely that he was getting his first big sponsorship deal, and had just come out of cancer therapy, and needed to feed his family. And, you know, pay medical bills.

Olbermann ("who?") calls him a louse for this.

What's annoying about this is this is a calculated attempt to be "controversial" and get "buzz" and I'm playing right into it.

My only consolation is that Keith Olbermann is a nobody and it really doesn't matter if I mention him or not. I could mention "Bob Whitehead" too. Not like Bob Whitehead's Q factor is going to be impacted by the mention.

Gee, you don't think this out-of-the-blue, sketchy attack an Armstrong's character has anything to do with him going bike riding with Bush, do you?

Keith Olbermann

The biggest, most pompous asshole you don't even realize you hate, 'cuzzin' you never even heard of him.

Thanks to Slublog.

Olbermann Fever-- Catch It! Dogstar notes:

The funniest thing about Olberman is his constant refrain that he's "on the verge" of blowing out the ratings and hitting the big time.

Month. After. Month.

On the verge. Yup, it's just a matter of time.

I gotta admit, I do appreciate Olbermann's stagey deadpan delivery. It's a very original take on Craig Kilborne's imitation of Bob Costa's imitation of Greg Kinnear's imitation of David Letterman's deadpan.

You wouldn't think someone could make such an oft-imitated styling fresh, and, of course, you'd be right.

Hey, Keith Olbermann. Byron Allen just called. He wants his blazing charisma back.
