Is former CNN host and one-man-gaffe-machine Rick Sanchez gunning for Olbermann’s old MSNBC gig?  The folks at RumorFix.com snagged the exclusive with Sanchez and got to the bottom of things.

The Cuban-born newsman would not comment on whether he has been approached by MSNBC to return to the news desk, but if offered Olbermann’s job, Sanchez tells us, “It would be worth considering.”

So Rick would consider a return to MSNBC, but Olbermann’s prime time real estate is already occupied by Lawrence O’Donnell.   Perhaps Mr.O’Donnell,  an avowed Socialist, would want to “share the wealth” and redistribute some of his time to Sanchez?

As a Socialist, there is little doubt that Mr. O’Donnell wants to redistribute the wealth, but we doubt that he means HIS wealth.  We suggest Rick make a pitch for the 6pm slot currently being used to showcase MSNBC’s “on the job TV host training program” with Cenk Uygur.

Sanchez Sees Olbermann Exit As a Positive (for Himself)
