Fun and Games at The Daily Caller

Adding to the list of things that Tucker Carlson has (good looks, intelligence, a sense of humor, sanity) that Keith Olbermann has not, The Daily Caller has purchased

The Daily Caller, one of the fastest-growing online media properties, announced today its acquisition of, expanding the company’s global reach into a new segment of the online political market. For more than six months The Daily Caller has been a recognized market leader in commentary about Keith Olbermann. Ruth Graham’s weekly Olbermann wrap-up, “We watch, because we’re paid to,” appears on The Daily Caller’s website each Friday.

“We plan to make The Daily Caller the one-stop online shop for Keith Olbermann commentary,” said Editor-in-Chief Tucker Carlson. “We will be THE Keith Olbermann superstore.”

“This is part of our long-term growth strategy,” added Publisher and CEO Neil Patel. “Our future acquisition targets include several other annoying cable news commentators.”
Olbermann, acting in his typical slow-witted manner took the bait and reacted in several low rent tweets.  I am told that Olbermann was at one time quite clever.  However, the passage of time combined with Mommy issues has not been kind.  He has been reduced to a mean-spirited, shallow bloviator who confuses bellowing with serious discussion.  Sad really.

The surprise came from SalonThey have purchased  Copycatting?  I would not have taken Salon for the "I know you are but what am I" type.  In the end it is Carlson 1, Salon and Olbermann 0.
