The wildly liberal MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann said the wildly popular conservative talk radio host and Fox anchor Sean Hannity's career was at an "end" because of a ridiculous interview with Obama Communications Director Robert Gibbs.

(And I mean ridiculous because of Gibbs, not Hannity)

After the presidential debate on Tuesday Gibbs made a rare appearance on Hannity & Colmes, where Hannity challenged him on Obama's relationship with Ayers.

Gibbs returned the questions with accusations Hannity was anti-Semitic because he had interviewed anti-Semitic people in the past. Olberman thought this was brilliant on Gibbs part. Alan Colmes thought it was a stupid tactic and defended Hannity.

He previewed a replay of the exchange by saying"Good evening, and welcome to the end of Sean Hannity`s career. Hannity, pwned by Robert Gibbs of the Obama campaign."

In reality, Hannity just signed a coveted "multi-year, multi-million dollar" contract with Fox.

Congrats, Sean!!
