Keith Olbermann
The ousted Current TV host was not amused by Kimmel's jokes; compares him to Bill O'Reilly.

Jimmy Kimmel's half-hour speech at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner Saturday evening had a few targets -- Kim Kardashian, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Lindsay Lohan and Mitt Romney, to name a few -- but it seems not everyone can take a joke.

One of the best jokes of the night was Kimmel's quips about recently ousted Current TV host Keith Olbermann.

"Alright, itís time for the fun part of the evening," Kimmel said. "Iíd like everyone to look under your seats. Under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermannís resume. Is Keith here tonight? Limo wouldnít pick him up? The thing about Keith Olbermann is heís so likable."

"Al Gore launched Current TV in 2005 and it took off like a North Korean rocket," Kimmel continued. "To be honest, I didnít even know Current TV was still on the air, but then I donít get channel a million."
