FLASHBACK: When fellow libs hilariously mocked Keith Olbermann


After being fired from ESPN, MSNBC, Current TV, and then ESPN again, Keith Olbermann has tried re-branding himself the “face of the resistance” with his latest gig: making brief YouTube videos for the magazine GQ.

The man has only been on our radar lately because of his bizarre emotional breakdowns on Twitter (which have become almost a daily occurrence) — and these breakdowns are the same reason he’s been fired from every TV job he’s ever held.

Even leftists couldn’t resist mocking the man back when he was on MSNBC’s lineup. Nearly a decade ago on SNL, Ben Affleck — of all people — was given the opportunity to mock Olbermann’s presentation style in a skit titled “Countdown: Keith Olbermann Overreacts About Everything.”

Watch below:

And for a bonus impression…

It’s time for an updated skit, don’t ya think?
