Olbermann To End Career In Gore-Like Obscurity

I’m not sure whose bright idea it was to pair up Al Gore and Keith Olbermann, but it’s going to be comedy gold. That is, if Current TV doesn’t go under before Olbermann makes his grand debut.

One of the people with knowledge of the plans said Mr. Olbermann would have an equity stake in Current TV. The people insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized by their employers to comment in advance of the official announcement…

Current TV has set up a presentation with advertisers for Wednesday afternoon in Manhattan to announce its future plans. The channel may be betting on Mr. Olbermann to put it on the cable map.

While I’m sure the half dozen people who still watch Current TV are positively thrilled to death, I’m not sure why he passed up more lucrative prospects, like his own reality television show on the E! Network or a 3D movie where his spittle could fly out of the screen directly upon an NPR-recruited audience waiting to be christened with it’s life giving energy. It seems Olbermann is following in the footsteps of the once great and might Dan Rather, who after several glorious decades pounding a desk at CBS and imparting folksy wisdom and fake-but-accurate news on his geriatric audience left for greener pastures at another back of the cable box channel, HDNet. He now hosts Dan Rather Reports and narrates fascinating documentaries on underwater sea life.

Maybe for kicks, Keith will grow back that dashing 70s mustache for the world-traveling adventure that awaits in his spiral into obscurity.
