Yeah, yeah, I know I’ve called him a jackass in the past. Not tonight.
Keith done did another one of his bombastic “Special Comments.” But this time – for the first time ever, supposedly – K.O. targeted a Democrat. And not just any ol’ Democrat. He clowned Hillary Rodham Clinton!
Using Geraldine Ferraro as a well-oiled springboard, Olbermann did a front one-and-a-half pike into the mud swamp of Team Hillary’s anything-goes Obama-bashing strategy.
He called out the Clinton campaign’s pattern of race-baiting – and Ferraro’s bullshit especially – with plain, sharp, angry language. (“... despicable... ugly... moronic... like a poison cloud...”)
Given how beloved Mr. Olbermann is by liberals, this “Special Comment” will definitely have an impact. Could it shift the momentum of the entire race? Like when Walter Cronkite declared the Vietnam War unwinnable?
(President Johnson reportedly said, “If I’ve lost Cronkite, I’ve lost America.” Might Hillary Clinton be thinking tonight, “If I’ve lost Olbermann, I’ve lost the Democratic Party”?)
I predict... There Will Be Blowback. Because Hillary’s a fighter. She will punch back at Keith and/or MSNBC some kind of way... you watch.
In the meantime, watch this. And pass it around.
