New York - Keith Olbermann, the left-leaning host of MSNBC's Countdown, was virtually suffocated to death by "300,000 people" giving him a "universal hug." A spokesman said, "The 21,000 tweets in a 72-hour period were not enough to save him."
The bombastic Mr.Olbermann was recently suspended indefinitely by parent company NBC.He had made campaign contributions to three Democrat party candidates, a few days before the mid term elections. NBC forbids on air personalities from making any political contributions monetary or otherwise.
Mr.Olbermann's spokesman, said, "In lieu of virtual flowers, people are asked to give virtual donations to the KO Narcissism Avatar." The countdown begins now.
