Olbermann Name-Calls Brown Before Critical Election

I think Keith Olbermann has reached a new low!

Last night, left-wing pundit Keith Olbermann attacked Republican Senate Candidate Scott Brown with a string of insults, smearing him as a "homophobe" and "racist.”

You may not have heard Scott Brown support a Constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, or describing two women having a child as being "Just not normal." You may not have heard Scott Brown associating himself with the Tea Party movement, perhaps the saddest collection of people who don't want to admit why they really hate since the racists of the South in the sixties insisted they were really just concerned about states' rights. You may not of heard Scott Brown voting against paid leaves of absence for Massachusetts Red Cross workers who had gone to New York to help after 9/11.

In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history, this man would have been laughed off the stage as an unqualified and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead, the commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States.

And I thought Keith calling people "fascist" was bad.

Somebody should tell Keith that disagreeing with gay marriage or adoption does not automatically make one a “homophobe,” nor does protesting against a black politician make one a “racist.”

The fact that he spewed this string of insults before the day of elections makes his smears especially distasteful.
