Since Chris Matthews Has Assassinations Covered This Week On MSNBC...

Since Chris Matthews has the assassination riffs covered this week on MSNBC, Olbermann is left with handling the misogyny:

On Tuesday’s Countdown show, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann spewed bile at conservative commentator Michelle Malkin, accusing her of possessing “fascistic hatred,” and comparing her to a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.” During his show’s regular “Worst Person” segment, Olbermann attacked Malkin for her role in bringing attention to the recent controversy over school children in New Jersey singing a song about President Obama. Blaming the conservative commentator for death threats made against a woman who posted video of the children singing, Olbermann struck at Malkin. Olbermann: “She received death threats and hate-filled voice mails all thanks to the total mindless, morally bankrupt, knee-jerk, fascistic hatred, without which Michelle Malkin would just be a big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it.”

Glad to see the self-styled second coming of Edward R. Murrow continuing to live up to his namesake’s standards. Not that Matthews is any slouch in the misogyny department himself, of course.
