Keith Olbermann, the host of "Countdown" an MSNBC news program, has renewed his contract with MSNBC to hate George Bush for another year.
The station owner said he is "satisfied with Keith's obsessive hatred of the current president, and wants it to continue." Olbermann said he was also pleased with the arrangement, and considered his "hatred of George Bush the best thing that his program has to offer."
A spokesman for MSNBC stated that it was getting harder to fill air time, and they even considered creating a children's show based on the Guantanamo Bay Prison, which "kids definitely ought to know about." Then the station realized that hating George Bush was very marketable. He especially likes the way it allows Keith to "talk about the same things over and over again. It simplifies production."
When asked if the premise would get old once George Bush was no longer president, Olbermann said that the station considered that risk, then thought that maybe whoever took over for Bush wouldn't be someone that Olbermann could hate, and "then where would we be? We need to stick with what works, and I have to hate someone."
