How low can MSNBC go?

I've already written how, despite my passion for the NFL, I will never watch Sunday's "Football Night in America." Why? Because the the absolutely wretched Keith Olbermann is a co-host. And his latest on-air rant demonstrates (again) why this network is so absolutely pathetic, not only in its ratings but its journalistic standards. Sorry, but no Fox News opinion commentator has ever sunk to such naked and disgusting personal attacks for mere political differences of opinion.

Here is Olbermann insulting Massachusetts voters, most of whom are Democrats and Independents, many of the former who're voting for Republican Scott Brown today, as are most of the latter :

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.

Perhaps as the network's ratings continue to plummet, Keith's rants will simply become less and less coherent. Much like one of our local (disgustingly nauseating) blog pundits.

One of my college buddies was murdered by Shining Path guerrillas in Peru while researching a story on the drug trade. As such, I have a serious problem with anyone who would do bodily harm to or take the life of a journalist.

That said, I'm willing to make an exception to that principle in the case of Olbermann. An Indiana Jones-style bullwhip seems like an excellent idea.

Pardon my use of language here, but Keith O, you've been teabagged :-)
