Keith Olbermann Unveils New Sign-Off: 'Mr. Boehner, Where Are the Jobs?' (VIDEO)

Keith Olbermann has long used his sign-off from 'Countdown' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on MSNBC) to remind viewers of how many days it's been since a significant event took place. For quite some time, he would list the days since George W. Bush declared mission accomplished in Iraq and, more recently, he had been marking off the days since the Deep Water Horizon disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.

On Wednesday, Olbermann updated the sign-off to reflect the midterm election.

"That's November 3rd, one day since the Republicans took control of the House -- 'Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs? I'm Keith Olbermann, goodnight and good luck."

Olbermann had been without an event to use in his sign-off for a while now, and was also in need of a new way to tweak conservatives now that he's put the "Worst Person in the World" segment to sleep. Still, this "ha, look who's responsible for the economy now" joke would have probably been more effective if he had waited to unveil it until January 3, 2011, when Boehner and company actually do take control of the Congress.
