Olbermann Appeals to Tea Partiers to Admit Racism

Via Newsbusters:
On Monday’s Countdown show, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann delivered a “Special Comment” aimed at Tea Party activists in which, rather than rhetorically bludgeoning them with his usual name calling, he came across as trying to reason with Tea Partiers, appealing to them to admit to having racist motivations against President Obama as the Countdown host suggested that he felt sorry for them. Before a commercial break, he plugged the segment, relaying that he would ask questions to Tea Party activists “sincerely and with sympathy.” At one point, Olbermann even seemed as if he were on the verge of expressing remorse for his history of using terms like “Tea Klux Klan” and “tea baggers,” which he referred to as “incendiary.”

Since calling voters "tea baggers" worked so well for Dems in New Jersey, Virginia and Massachusetts, I can only hope "Tea Klux Klan" catches on as well among the Left. - Greg Pollowitz
