Update: Olbermann responds to SNL skit

tjndc5-5b4dl4iamz9sxta7nb6_original.jpgJohn McCain’s campaign not only praised the senator’s performance on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, but spent even more time talking about the sketch making fun of MSNBC anchor and Tarrytown native Keith Olbermann.

Olbermann responded to Time magazine today with these words:

“Honestly, everybody deserves a laugh but if on the weekend before the presidential election they spent more than seven seconds bothering with ME, the campaign staff has even less of a clue than I thought.”

Olbermann then goes on to credit the McCain campaign for helping him beat Bill O’Reilly in the TV ratings, and then teases to this juicy tidbit that he’s going to reveal on his show tonight:

“One last SNL thing: I’ll be reporting the details on this tonight. ask them why Governor Palin didn’t say her first line as scripted three shows ago. As they pulled back from the monitor shot of Tina doing the impression she was supposed to compliment Tina. Could’ve been a real rehab to her image – why’d she refuse?”

Interesting…
