Just a few weeks after his despicable comments about Sarah Palin, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir is taking his ball and going home.
That’s probably not too far off from how it actually went:
Straight from the jackass’ mouth, via Mediaite:
After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.
I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.’
Hard to feel sorry for a guy who’s made a name for himself by spewing dishonest, nasty garbage.
Aside from all seven of MSNBC’s “smartest, most compassionate and discerning” viewers, nobody’s gonna be crying over spilt Bashir.
Hee! Hilarious because it’s true. So, what’s next for MSNBC?
Or even better:
Now that we’d watch.
