One of America's foremost Liberals is a complete horse's ass. But I repeat myself.

"Keith Olbermann was taken off his ESPN show for the rest of the week after making insulting comments about Penn State students on Twitter.

On Monday, a Penn State alum tweeted to Olbermann the phrase "We Are!" and a link to an article about students raising more than $13 million to fight pediatric cancer. Olbermann replied "...Pitiful."

Olbermann, who often spars with commenters on Twitter, then refused to back down in several more tweets, saying he was referring to Penn State students in general and not the fundraising.

"It was completely inappropriate and does not reflect the views of ESPN," the network said in a statement Tuesday. "We have discussed it with Keith, who recognizes he was wrong. ESPN and Keith have agreed that he will not host his show for the remainder of this week and will return on Monday. The annual tradition of THON and the efforts of the students of Penn State to fight pediatric cancer should be applauded."

Olbermann also apologized on Twitter on Tuesday, saying, "I was stupid and childish and way less mature than the students there who did such a great fundraising job."

He was allowed to come back to ESPN so long as he avoided politics and controlled his mouth. He just couldn't do it.
