Keith Olbermann is a cross between a doofus, a bully, and a sophomoric douche-bag.
I mean seriously, what kind of respectable newscaster does a piece called "Worst Person In the World"? High School Freshman wouldn't have done something like that. It's lame. It's sad. It's delusional.
So when he calls out to his hoard of minions to attack Glenn Beck and then within 48 hours calls them back, I've got to wonder what was he thinking?
First of all, his show is like watched by a half dozen people nowadays. How deep in the tank are MSNBC's ratings in general and Olbermann's in particular?
Second, why pick a fight at all and then retract it? The only thing I can think of is that Olbermann himself realized that Beck could simply turn the tables on Olbermann and dig up dirt on him.
As I said a sophomoric doofus.
