Phil Griffin is a fucking moron

I'm certain that, in the fullness of time, the details of Keith Olbermann's departure from MSNBC will become public, but whether it was Keith's decision to leave, or Phil Griffin's decision that he leave, allowing him to go has to be one of the dumbest decisions ever made (or not made, or bungled) in cable television history. Keith was on the vanguard of what made MSNBC into what it is today, and he was the loudest, most eloquent counterpoint to the right wing blather at Fox Noise. Don't get me wrong...Rachel and Lawrence are wonderful, but there's no replacing the original...

We'll miss you, Keith, but look forward to your re-emergence, in whatever form, in whatever medium (or media). Hurry back!
