Keith Olbermnn: Sorry I Complicated The "War on Women" Narrative; Let Me Offer a Fake Apology So You Can Say "He Apologized Already" So We Can Clear The Decks For More Unprincipled Attacks

The media refused to comment on this at the time. Now it's a bit inconvenient. They want to talk Limbaugh, but there are some of these stinky poopies out there, and it just makes the attack a little blunter than it could be.

So, Keith Olbermann, fooling no one at all, attempts to call a Mulligan on his own War on Women remarks.

The point of this is not to actually apologize; it's just to try to remove the inevitable rebuttal from the right.

He could have apologized at any time in the past few years had he believed a drop of this. He didn't. The "apology" is just tactical.

Oh, he's also suspending his Worst Person in the World segment. Again. If you remember, he suspended this when the left was making its last ridiculous PC attack, the "New Tone" attacks that followed the Gabby Giffords shooting. (Shot by a lunatic whose politics was chiefly concerned with subversion by grammar.)

He suspended the segment then -- for a short time --- only so the New Tone battleplan could go on without his nasty stuff complicating The Narrative.

And now he's suspended it again. It will be suspended only for about as long as the current War on Women tactic is useful; the moment it runs out of gas, the segment's back on, and so are the mashed bags of meat.

By the way, there's no actual apology in his "apology." He goes on the attack against Malkin and S.E. Cupp and defends his remarks.

But he's got that soundbite out there -- he "apologized." The attack can go forward again without his undermining The Narrative.

Oh: The guy who made a minor name for himself by histrionically calling everyone he disagreed with a fascist, Nazi, or mashed-up bag of meat now "challenges" all other commentators to "elevate their tone."

Just like he did a year ago.

Until he reinstated Worst Person in the World.

Keith Olbermann

His "civility" is in and out of retirement more than George Foreman.
