Keith Olbermann has made a career of mocking and ridiculing anyone who disagrees with him. But on Friday, CBS late night host Craig Ferguson turned the tables on him and appeared to have quite a good time poking fun at Olbermann’s teeny tiny Maltese dog.
“Oh, my goodness. Now normally I would relish someone making fun of Keith Olbermann,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “But this was such a surgical procedure on such a guy who has just been kicked in the teeth relentlessly for a long time… He's just an arrogant, arrogant man. Here he is being humbled on Craig Ferguson.”

Ferguson, who hosts the Late Late Show, was pretty pointed in his questions, asking: “Is it a little dog that fits in your purse as you go around to your outspoken liberal meetings?”
And the beating just continued from there.
“What happened to you, man?” Ferguson continued. “Why’d you get a tiny little dog? Why didn’t you get like a regular American dog? You got the tiny little Maltese dog? What the hell?”
“That's great. You got this foreigner asking him, ‘Why the hell didn't you get an American dog? A real dog,’” Pat said. “And at first [Olbermann] claims not to even know what kind of dog it is and then he's forced to admit it's a Maltese.”
“And the little dog is watching TV going, ‘He's ashamed of me,’” Glenn quipped.
“Because you know he turns on his [TV] appearances for his dog,” Stu added.
“That seemed almost real. That he's alone in his New York apartment and this thing is his only friend,” Glenn said somberly. “Remember when he went away, nobody liked him. Nobody on the left liked him. I mean nobody really has ever liked him. I feel bad. I hope he's not listening because, you know, he's going to turn the gas on and the dog will go with him… I mean, it doesn't seem like it's sad at this point, but it is.”
Despite Glenn’s curious compassion for Olbermann, Stu was quick to clarify the true meaning of “sad”.
“Sad and pathetic are often used in concert,” Stu explained. “I would say here pathetic is probably more applicable, right? I mean it's just pathetic. He's just a pathetic, pathetic man.”
