Keith Olbermann lost his mind on Allen West yesterday evening on his program and doubled-down this afternoon on Twitter. The irony is that the insults he cast upon Rep. Allen West were, according to his own measurement of offensiveness, more outrageous than anything ever uttered or written by the Congressman.Seriously?! Are you that insane, Dana?! Trying to defend a sexist ultra-right punk?!
Here's the harsh letter that West sent to Wassserman-Schultz:
From: Z112 West, AllenGrow the fuck up, Allen West! And he did apologize to Wasserman Schultz today, but the Teahadist base is saying that he's a "spineless, sellout RINO" for apologizing to her. But it doesn't change the fact that he still said those vile things. Update: She says that "apology is absolutely untrue."
Sent: Tuesday, July 19, 2011 04:48 PM
To: Wasserman Schultz, Debbie
Cc: McCarthy, Kevin; Blyth, Jonathan; Pelosi, Nancy; Cantor, Eric
Subject: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman-Schultz
Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
On yesterday's Countdown With Keith Olbermann, Keith Olbermann deservingly ripped West to shreds for not only bashing Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL20), but for suggesting that "Barack Obama supporters are a threat to the gene pool." He was named Silver in the Worst Persons comment, but should've really be awarded the Gold.
From the 07.19.2011 edition of Current TV's Countdown With Keith Olbermann:
She whined about Wasserman Schultz for having the balls to call out the Republicans for their plans to openly advocate cuts of Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. And the DNC Chairwoman is right on target with what she said.
She has more ability to understand critical thinking, unlike you, who wants to make up stuff to hurt Liberals and Democrats.
To recap: Debbie Wasserman-Schultz demonstrated her inability to comprehend economics 101 the floor of the House yesterday with this:
She didn’t deliver her speech until Congressman West was absent and then directed it at him.
From the 07.19.2011 edition of CSPAN's House Of Representatives Coverage:
On today's episode of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports, she went on and responded to West's unprofessional conduct:
From the 07.20.2011 edition of MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell Reports:
So, Loesch will defend a sexist Conservative for his actions, while whining about "Liberals/Progressives/Democrats are sexists." Grand hypocrisy much?
