Olbermann: 37 racist incidents prove Carter is right

Says of Rush Limbaugh, The nations asshole would know about the nations hemorrhoid

Former President Jimmy Carters suggestion that much of the intensely demonstrated animosity against President Obama is an expression of racism has been widely disputed by Republicans and some media commentators.

MSNBCs Keith Olbermann, however, came to Carters defense on Wednesday. Jimmy Carter tells the truth about some, not all, but some of the rabid rage against President Obama, Olbermann stated, and is thus the recipient of the automatic blowback from those whose livelihoods depend on enabling the ragers to tell themselves it is not racism that they feel.

In introducing the segment, Olbermann claimed that he could offer at least 37; cases that he believes prove President Carter to be correct. He also noted that Rush Limbaugh had attacked Carters statements by saying Jimmy Carter is the nations hemorrhoid and retorted, Well, I got to defer to him here, the nations asshole would know about the nations hemorrhoid.

2. Meanwhile, at cnn...
I flipped to cnn during commercial break of Countdown. Damn, it's getting really bad over there. Cambell Brown and a republican strategists are twisting into pretzels to deny any racist motivation or intent of the rw lunatics.

Then they show a clip of Nancy Pelosi's statements of warning about the dangerous nature of the level of rhetoric that is being used by some of the rw. At this point Roland Martin reads a clear death threat (the author said that he wanted to put a bullet in Martin's head) that he received via e-mail yesterday. Cambell's reaction? Did she express shock, horror, and empathy for Roland? NO! Cambell Brown sat there giving Roland a dirty look as though he was blowing the death threat out of proportion.

Sorry if this is slightly off topic. I'm just so boiling mad and disgusted that I don't know what to do. :grr: :cry:
