Tax Less and Spend Liberal Keith Olbermann

If liberals love taxes so much why won't professional angry person Keith Olbermann pay his?

The MSNBC host, who tries to boost meager ratings for his “Countdown” show with concocted charges of White House lawbreaking, seems himself guilty of illegal conduct. reported May 29 that New York State has issued a tax warrant or judgment against Olbermann for $2,269.50 in back taxes owed by his personal corporation, Olbermann Broadcasting Empire, Inc.

Asked about the delinquency Thursday night by conservative journalist Evan Gahr, the otherwise loquacious Olbermann uttered nary a word as he scurried inside his Trump Palace apartment building on the Upper East Side.

Gahr, a former Post press critic, grilled Olbermann when he walked south on 3rd Avenue and 69th Street to his condominium, where he bought apartment 40B last year, according to public records.


Is the belt-tightening so severe at NBC that the peacock network can't afford a car to take Olbermann home? Not even a cab? Subway fare?

Don't they have enough money from all the business parent company GE, according to Bill O'Reilly, does with Iran?

Anyway, if Olbermann is denied paid transportion he should think on the bright side: nobody can call him a limousine liberal.

Perhaps a better term is taxless and spend liberal.
