Hey, Keith, this is not a rifle!
You'd think that if Keith Olbermann was going to mount his high horse, do a superior act and be sarcastic about someone he would at least have the provable facts straight. Sure, he twists the truth out of all proportion every night, on his "Worst Person in the World" segment, and slanders anyone who disagrees with him in unconscionable ways—but usually it takes more than a simpleGoogle search to refute him.
Thanks for making my job so easy today, smart guy:
OLBERMANN: He [Congressman Steve King] Tweets that last week a raccoon tried to get into his House, so he chased out into, quote, a midday mid-blizzard and shot it with a semi-automatic rifle called a Desert Eagle.
Nice research team you have there.
But that's only the dumb part, the host who has been displaying a deep dark obsession with race lately also made a smirky "coon" joke at the end of the segment naming Congressman King the Runner Up for Worst Person in the Woooorrrrlllld. (Click the NewsRealBlog link above for video)
OLBERMANN: The runner-up, Representative Steve King of Iowa, pulling back in front in the weekly craziest congressmen derby. He Tweets that last week a raccoon tried to get into his House, so he chased out into, quote, a midday mid-blizzard and shot it with a semi-automatic rifle called a Desert Eagle. King says he was protecting his grand daughters. His quote, "that's just what has to happen when you live out here in the country. I can't have a crazy COON, unquote."
Check out Olbermann's double take on the word "coon" at the end of the King segment. Now imagine Don Imus getting away with this.
And who beat out Steve King as the Worst Person in the World yesterday? Why Glenn Beck, of course.
OLBERMANN: But our winner, Lonesome Roads Beck. His advice today on what to do with the Taliban's number two, Mullah Baradar, captured by US and Pakistani intelligence? "We've just captured the second most wanted guy in al Qaeda. Shoot him in the head."
Taliban, not al Qaeda. Different groups. Like you wouldn't want me calling you "New York Post" when you're Fox News.
First thing out of my mind, "shoot him in the head." Yes, that's not the first thing out of your mind. Don't you want to interrogate him, Becky was asked. "If I were in charge, we'd be interrogating him. We'd interrogate and interrogate him, and then we'd shoot him in the head. Shoot him in the head before we release him into, what, primary schools in New York City? What are we going to do with this guy?
Since it's worked with a lot of other people whose plans would destroy America, give him a show on Fox News.
Glenn "he's every man at the bar", if every man has just escaped from a mental health facility.
Beck, today's worst person in the world.
Yep, the guy who wants to shoot Taliban terrorists in the head, NOT the terrorist who want to blow up innocents is the Worst Person in the World on Olbermann's show.
And the Left squawks "McCarthyism!" when we point out they would rather fight their domestic opponents than America's foreign enemies.
