The barely known Keith Olbermann of MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann took a shot at John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute calling him the “worst person in the world” because of the letter he wrote in support of the Tea party protest outside Perriello’s Charlottesville. Of course Olbermann also managed to take his usual shot at these constitutional activists, using the derogatory term “teabaggers”, knowing full well the sexual connotation that term carries. Not to worry though no one watches his show anyway.
In the Daily Progress in reference to Olbermann’s comments Whitehead stated: “I accept with great humility Keith Olbermann’s conferring me with the ‘World’s Worst Person’ gold award.” Olbermann had the audacity to call Whitehead lazy referring to him as the leader of the area tea party. It seems to me that Olbermann is the lazy one or maybe just ignorant, whatever fits. He can’t even bother to find out that Whitehead has had no involvement with the tea party with the exception of drafting this letter.
I am not surprised that Olbermann and MSNBC are one of the lowest rated cable news networks on TV.
