Keith Olbermann loses it tonight, even more so than usual:
“In Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”
Of course, the latter half of Olbermann’s argument would make Brown perfectly qualified to be his successor on MSNBC, should he come up short tomorrow.
Update: Former Republican congressman turned MSNBC anchor Joe Scarborough can’t decide where his politics place him on the ideological spectrum these days (there’s a lot of that going around the halls of NBC), but at least he knows that he disapproves his colleague’s disgusting statement:
Obermann calls Brown a “homophobic racist reactionary” who “supports violence against women.” How reckless and how sad.
(Does the person’s who’s stuck with it ever brush off thoughts of quitting with that old rejoinder, “What, and give up show business?!”)
Update: Michelle Malkin adds, “Clown who called me ‘big mashed up bag of meat with lipstick’ says Scott Brown hates women.”
If you make it to the last two paragraphs of James W. Ceaser’s lengthy (by Web-standards) but must-read piece at the Weekly Standard, “The Roots of Obama Worship”, you’ll understand better why Olbermann thinks he can use such language.
Beyond the fact that he’s a misogynist misanthropic jerk, of course.
