When we last checked in with fired Current host Keith Olbermann, he was uploading lonely photos to his Tumblr (which hasn’t been updated in a month). He’s still got the newsman in him somewhere, though, because last night, upon the release of Mitt Romney’s secret fund-raiser musings, the showless Olbermann took to his camera phone and framed himself in front of a Countdown-esque cityscape, where he proceeded to laugh like Dr. Evil for fifteen seconds. Mocked on Twitter about his obvious boredom, Olbermann shot back that he’s been “[living] off investments, sleeping late, sitting around counting my money … You know, like Romney.” Sometimes we laugh to keep from crying.
What they did could be a violation of House rules.
