Keith Olbermann Will Be Back on Tuesday


Yesterday afternoon, the "suspended indefinitely" MSNBC talk-show host and small-time Democratic donor broke his silence with a tweet:

Greetings From Exile! A quick, overwhelmed, stunned THANK YOU for support that feels like a global hug & obviously left me tweetless XO

And now the exile is over.

A few hours later, Phil Griffin, the hard-charging president of MSNBC, said in a statement that Olbermann would be allowed to return:

After several days of deliberation and discussion, I have determined that suspending Keith through and including Monday night’s program is an appropriate punishment for his violation of our policy. We look forward to having him back on the air Tuesday night.

When he comes back, there's a good possibility that he'll be contrite, mellow, fumbling for a new feeling of cooperation and bi-partisanship. He's already halfway there: His new signoff is "XO," apparently.
