Olbermann not the brightest $10 million bulb..

April 4, 2012

Olbermann, who was fired last week by Al Gore’s Current TV, appeared on the “Late Show With David Letterman” on Tuesday to talk about his new unemployment. He was clearly engaging in some reputation rehab by appearing  self-deprecating on the show, although he refrained from going into much detail about what went  wrong.

“I screwed up really big on this,” Olbermann said. “It’s my fault that it didn’t succeed, in the sense that I didn’t think the whole thing through.”

Olbermann, who had a reported $50 million contract with Current, compared himself to a $10 million chandelier. “I  didn’t say, ‘You know, if you buy a $10 million chandelier, you should  have a house to put it in.’ Just walking around with a $10 million  chandelier isn’t going to do anybody a lot of good.”

“You’re the chandelier?” Letterman said.
