Olbermann’s Political Football

A.W.R. Hawkins takes on Keith Olbermann at Human Events today.

When it comes to unabashed political vitriol, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, host of “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” is without peer. In the past few months alone, he referred to Sarah Palin as “a clear and present danger to the safety and security of this nation,” said Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly “voluntarily [associates] himself with and [encourages]” people who kill abortion providers, accused former Vice President Dick Cheney of doing “the primary job of a terrorist” by criticizing President Obama, and called Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) a “bald faced liar” when Thune pointed out the dangers of Obamacare.Ironically, Olbermann has not admitted that he has been doing “the primary job of a terrorist” although he spent 2008 criticizing President George W. Bush for allegedly “allowing the 9/11 attacks to occur” and accused Bush of using “murderous deceit” to justify sending “4,000 Americans to their death [in the Iraq War] for nothing!”
