Keith Olbermann: "I’ve never fought the word genius when people have said that about me.

But what it is is instinct and a set of skills that are working so fast you don’t know they’re working." Keith also declared
"I have a leafy brain, according to the theory of the leafy brain. I associate things that many people never put together." This sounds like someone's brain on leaves...and a lighter. Olbermann to Esquire Magazine: 'I’ve Never Fought the Word Genius' Applied to Me | NewsBusters

I'd like to know who looks at the hilarious creep and thinks himself in the presence of genius.

Keith Olbermann is a genius. Barack Obama is a genius. Huh, so that's what 'genius' means...

Wylie E. Coyote was a Genius, too. With, I would add, all of the successes attendant thereto.

He did set a high bar, didn't he?

I so wish I could stick a little "ACME" label on Olberdouche's destop microphone. It would complete the joke that is the Keef.

Jim, Wile E. Coyote was in fact a super genius.

Just as Queef J. Odorman is a super retard.

If associating things that people never put together makes you a genius, then every paranoid is one.

Of course Keith is a genius. Everybody in Keith's generation is a genius. Just ask them.

"Nothing is so evanescent as the glory of a man who proclaims himself a hero." [Kerry]... or genius [the insufferable Olbermann]

Keith's ego in flight is a majestic thing.

Did elgeneralisimo miss something, isn't leafy brain a parasitic fungus that grows on dead wood ?

Genius, indeed. He just hasn't been smart enough to figure out how to keep his mouth shut and hold a job.

Yeah he's definitely one of those guys who has a gigantic, towering vision of himself. I've read that this goes beyond narcissism into what the Greeks called Hubris: the inability to even conceive of failure. Someone so filled with their self worth they believe they are capable of doing anything at all, without effort, and cannot at any point do wrong or fail.
