In case you missed it, Keith Olbermann tweeted the other day, after watching conservative S. E. Cupp talk about abortion and Planned Parenthood, “On so many levels she’s a perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does.”
Sure does sound like Olbermann meant that Cupp should’ve been aborted, but after sending the tweet, Olbermann defended himself by saying he didn’t mean abortion, just that Cupp’s parents should have gone to PP for birth control.
Either way, a classless statement.
Cupp’s mother responded with this letter to Olbermann:
An Open Letter to Keith Olbermann,

You should know that her father and I are endlessly proud of the young woman she has become.
And here’s the gang from Red Eye’s take . . . good stuff:
