MSNBC's Keith Olbermann returned to the airwaves last night after a temporary suspension (he wasn't allowed on the air Friday or Monday, which the rest of us call a long weekend). In case you've been living under a rock for the past weekish, Politico reported Friday that Olbermann had made three donations to Democratic campaigns this election cycle, in direct violation of MSNBC employee policy. 

We could go on and on about how MSNBC hired Olbermann to spout his political opinions, only to punish him for (literally) putting his money where his mouth is, but let's focus on something new: Why the hell did St. Louis' own Dana Loesch come into the picture?

Check out the 2:24 mark:



Olbermann thanks his supporters, including those of a politically different mindset. 

"Jonah Goldberg, William Kristol and Dana Loesch probably treated me better than I would have treated them. Rick Sanchez clearly did that. They get my thanks and respect although they probably wish they didn't," Olbermann says.

Huh?
