It's the end of an era -- unhinged leftist Keith Olbermann is retiring from politics. We feel sure Olbermann isn't gone for good -- he's been released from so many other gigs in the past and yet he keeps popping up again -- but if the man himself is to be believed, this is the end of his involvement in the political arena.
On Monday Olbermann released yet another episode -- the final one -- of his political commentary series comically titled, "The Resistance," videos seemingly shot in the basement of the offices of GQ magazine.
Olbermann, the always over-serious "Special Correspondent" for the heavily-politicized fashion mag, began this episode with the announcement that the presidency of "Donald John Trump" was imminent, and thus, "I am confident that this is the correct moment to end this series of commentaries."
Olbermann proceeds to ramble for eight minutes about what he claims are the seven reasons that impeachment is inevitably near for Trump and his "prodigious evil." The political landscape won't heal for another 30 or 40 years, he claims, but "at least the bleeding will be staunched!" he shouts.
Skip all that. The only mildly interesting part is the final minute or two in which Olbermann announces that "I am retiring from political commentary in all media venues" in order to enjoy his life again. "My work here is done," he concludes, as if he has single-handedly brought down the President and now can ride off into the sunset. This is saddening for those of us who relied upon his angry, nutty GQ videos for entertainment.
If you're curious, check out as much as you can stomach of Olbermann's pomposity below. If nothing else, watch the end in which he modifies his signature closing with, "Resist. Remove. Peace." Keith, your hilariously delusional rants will be sorely missed. Peace out.
