I’ve listened to Ed Shultz and Keith Olbermann do their best to get people to vote for ‘Marica’ Coakley. With Ed Shultz it was a blatant plea to voters, questioning their loyalty along the way. With Olbermann, it’s more of what he does best – tearing down Scott Brown while insulting the very people he is hoping will vote for Coakley. In case you miss it, the insult is accusing ‘the commonwealth of Massachusetts’ of potentially sending a bad joke to the U.S. Senate. This reminds me of David Shuster questioning whether the state of Massachusetts ‘has lost it’s mind‘.
“In short in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible homophobic racist reactionary ex-nude-model tea-bagging supporter of violence against women 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 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.”
