Tuesday night on Meltdown—er, Countdown, Keith Olbermann and Lawrence O'Donnell pretended to ponder seriously Jimmy Carter's racist slander on the South in particular, and anyone who is angry with President Obama in general.
Well, he's given it some… thought, and after one night, Keith has a conclusion: the right is… could it be… I don't know… RACIST!
So, by Wednesday, it was time to let 'er rip. But before he went on a rant, Keith had a contest to see who is the biggest waste of money– an anchor who gets about one dollar for every viewer he attracts, or a historically illiterate professor whose rantings costs students (or parents) about $1000 per credit hour.
Their "comparably enlightened" conversation even covered the finer points of when it's racist or not racist to compare someone to a monkey—I'm sure you were wondering how you ever got through life thus far without this information. (the interview starts at about the 3 minute mark in the video)
