Janeane Garofalo and Keith Olbermann are complete opposites. She’s angry and nuts, but he’s nuts and angry. Watching their alternate reality is like being dropped into some parallel universe where everything is twisted about 180 degrees.
Here are a few choice comments from Garofalo on Olbermann’s Thursday show. Amazingly, she knows things about you and the Tea Parties and Fox News that no one else has ever known. Or ever will know.
“Racism straightup. Nothing but a bunch of teabagging racists.” Blah-blah-blah. “These guys hate that a black guy is in the White House.” Blah-blah-blah. “Fox News loves to foment this anti-intellectualism because that’s their bread and butter.” Blah-blah-blah. “The Republican hyphen conservative movement has crystalized into the white power movement.”
Olbermann actually treats this lunatic like she’s a rational human being. Of course, that would be the pot calling the kettle black.
Hey, that wasn’t a racist comment. No matter what Garofalo says.
