Truth is stranger than are-you-friggin’-kidding-me? Biden asked Olbermann for advice on controlling his temper

by editor on November 8, 2010

Far as we can tell, there are only two possible explanations for this story:

(1) Joe Biden is even dumber than his many words and actions have indicated, (2) Keith Olbermann is even crazier than his many words and actions have indicated.

Going to Keith Olbermann for advice on controlling your temper is like going to Rosie O'Donnell for beauty tips

CNN has the bizarre details:

MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, suspended indefinitely Friday for donating to Democratic candidates for office, said in an interview two days before his suspension that Vice President Joe Biden once sought his advice.

“I once had a conversation with the man who is now the vice president when he was still in the Senate, who asked me for advice about how to turn anger into righteous inspiration,” Olbermann said in an interview with the New York Times Magazine.

Olbermann added, “He [Biden] said, ‘I just come across like I’m angry and out of control, and you seem to focus it and make it look useful and expressive.’’’

Also noteworthy, Olbermann expressed surprise with Jon Stewart’s criticism of him during the Rally for Sanity.

“I saw that. I was sitting at home, with my notebooks for the election, in that Saturday haze that anybody who does five shows [a week] is still in until the middle of the afternoon on Saturday,” Olbermann said in the interview. “I was thinking: That’s odd. I wouldn’t think of myself in those terms. Why is my videotape there?”

OK. The last paragraph has narrowed down the possibilities for us.

Olbermann is crazy.

5 shows a week? How much time does he spend on each one? An hour taping and 2 hours before hand spinning the latest headline into the GOPs fault?

Screw you Keith and your Buddy Holly glasses.

Considering that Keith Olbermann has/had a section on his show called “The Worst Person in the World,” which consists primarily of him ranting about public figures who have recently angered him, one would think that Biden could have found a better anger management coach.

Dammit, Olbermann is back. So an indefinite suspension is just two days. Lean forward everyone.
