Man, Keith Olbermann must have the thinnest skin of any man alive not named Bill Donohue. Jimmy Kimmel made a couple jokes at his expense at the White House correspondent’s dinner last weekend and he threw a little mini-tantrum over it on Twitter. What Kimmel said:
“I’d like everyone to look under your seats,” he joked. “Under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermann’s resume. Is Keith here tonight? Limo wouldn’t pick him up?”
He also said that Olbermann “burned more bridges than the arsonist of Madison County” and “has more pink slips than Marcus Bachmann.”
And Olbermann’s humorless response:
“Funny that Jimmy Kimmel ripped me after his people desperately wanted me to fly to LA to be on his show this past Wednesday,” Olbermann tweeted on Saturday night.
He added: “I’m not complaining about the Kimmel jokes — I’m fair game. I’m complaining about the revenge element. It reminds me of O’Reilly.”
Really, Keith? You’re a famous guy who has been in the news lately. And you’re surprised that a late-night comedian would both invite you on his show and make fun of you too? Did you just get a television last week? Get over yourself.
