I have a lot of friends who have pining away for the good old days when they could watch Keith Olbermann on MSNBC every night. It seems like it was just the other day. Well, pine no more my friends…
Keith Olbermann went live tonight with his new blog: FOK News Channel.
And he started out with a bang with his first post — Worst Persons of the Day for February 25, 2011, kicking off with the “Question to Broun: Who’s going to shoot President Obama?” story that broke earlier today:
Our first Silver winner: U.S. Representative Paul Broun, continuing to set the high standard for Congressional inhumanity at which the Michele Bachmanns and the Steve Kings can only grasp in vain. Dr. Broun’s office now confirms that at a town hall in Athens, Ga. the Congressman was asked “who is going to shoot Obama?”
The crowd in the Oglethorpe County Commission chamber roared with laughter. But fortunately Broun was enough of an American to say something like John McCain did when that bag lady tried to claim the then-Senator was a ‘terrist.’
Oh, no, sorry, he didn’t. Broun didn’t say ‘don’t even joke about such things.’ He simply pivoted into “The thing is, I know there’s a lot of frustration with this president. We’re going to have an election next year… (blah, blah blah, blah blah).”
