It's tough to take anything Hamilton Nolan says seriously simply because every time I see his byline in Gawker I'm immediately reminded that he looks like the product of about six generations of brothers and sisters having sex with each other.
Still, his take this morning on the bitter feud brewing between -- wait for it -- Keith Olbermann and
(insert employer here) Current TV is pretty dead-on, at least insofar as it offers a warning to anyone else inexplicably considering bringing the toxic cloud that is Olbermann into his or her workplace.
Once again, Keith is engaged in a very public fight with his bosses and once again it's everyone's fault but Keith's. At this point, hiring Olbermann is like dating me: Yeah, it's got its occasional moments of brilliance and bliss, but there's just too much well-documented history for you to want to seriously consider it. As they say, 50,000,000 Elvis fans can't be wrong.
