Keith Olbermann Calls Scott Brown a Homophobic, Racist, Bad Joke

Tonight on his MSNBC program Countdown, host Keith Olbermann directed one of his quick comments towards Republican Massachusetts Senate candidate Scott Brown. He said, “In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against women…”

Olbermann said of Brown, “In short, in Scott Brown we have an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex nude model, teabagging, supporter of violence against women, and against politicians with whom he disagrees. In any other time in our history this man would have been laughed off the stage, as an unqualified, and a disaster in the making by the most conservative of conservatives. Instead the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is close to sending this bad joke to the Senate of the United States.”

I think that the Democrats only have themselves to blame for this mess. They have a candidate in Coakley who has run a laughably bad campaign, and it seems like everyone involved thought that there was no way that this race could tighten. No one will say it out loud, but Democrats certainly acted like they had this election in the bag.

If a candidate does not engage their potential supporters, they will lose. It is that simple. The Coakley campaign opened the door for Brown, who at the very least is a typically empty headed right winger who the GOP will be able to count on to do what he is told. Olbermann made this guy sound like the anti-Christ, but part of Keith’s shtick is exaggeration.

Should Scott Brown win tomorrow’s special election, it would be because Massachusetts suddenly hates Barack Obama. It won’t be because the state is going conservative. It will be because voters are angry and the Democratic candidate has done nothing to address their anger. In short, the Democrats by being tone deaf will gift a Senate seat to the GOP.

  2. supporting traditional marriage does not make you a homophobe.

    It’s astounding how various pundits from Olbermann to Anderson Cooper can get away with using a homophobic slur such as “tea bagging” on national television.

    Just because you demand a small government doesn’t make you a racist.

    Because some overzealous supporter makes an uncouth remark at a rally doesn’t mean it reflects on the candidate. You can find nutjobs on BOTH sides if you look hard enough. The media only gives the crazies camera time to discredit whichever side they happen to be against. Such is the norm, all things conservative and/or republican

    Marcia Coakley is simply out of touch with Massachusetts. She called Curt Schilling a Yankee fan for crying out loud.

    Everytime I watch Keith Olbermann, I just replay Ben Afflecks SNL dead-on impersonation of him and laugh. It’s not even a parody because it’s so spot-on.

    You know who’s a joke? Keith Olbermann.

  3. … this shows that you don’t know that the term “teabagging” doesn’t refer to a homosexual act. So it isn’t homophobic. But nice try.

  4. he must have some dirt on his bosses. Or he had a great lawyer during his contract negotiations.

    To my liberal friends (at least those of you who still maintain some semblance of dignity)– does it not bother you that this guy Olbermann supports some of the same causes as you? Honestly, you’d think that you guys would have the common sense to disavow this world class jerk & all his comments. Stop supporting/ defending himself & spare your dignity.

  5. Keith just throws out comments and slander that has no foundation. I believe he is just hoping somethings he says will stick. Keith is the joke, and he should be embarrassed by his comments.

    The Truth

  6. Olbermann has stumbled upon an innovative new journalism, report a whole gamut of possible and impossible ideas and then ask the audience to disprove them. Much easier than finding out facts yourself.

  7. Olberwomans second tirade in as many nights shows how insignificant he is as a TV personality. He is screaming for attention. He wants the controversy. He is begging for anyone…someone to watch his show…because up until last night…nobody was listening and nobody cared. The biggest disappointment of all is that NBC actually puts this JokeBag on it’s football broadcasts along side legitimate broadcasters such as Bob Costas. Olberwomann shouldn’t be allowed to be a Gaffers assistant on any set that Bob Costas is on. I enjoy football being back on NBC…But this Idiot practically ruins it for me.

  9. I used to be watch this very good sportscaster turned pundit when, with some sense of humor, he poked fun at the arrogance and missteps of the pols. Sort of a less funny Jon Stewart. Since then, he has become arrogant (without any apparent intellectual basis for the arrogance) intolerant and hateful. He is either close to a breakdown or has determined that his only future is to bait the nuts that get excited by the personal attacks and hate speach. The Dallas Morning News editor’s comparison to the Glen Beck show is certainly appropriate. In my opinion the Olbermann show is boring and his opinions are so scewed as to be irrelevant.

  10. Why do you imply that he will “make the bankers and big business more wealthy?”
    Seems to me that he is the opposite of what you’re suggesting.

  11. i never watch that loon olberman. but he is kind of amusing in that when his party loses, he goes apeshit and falls apart with a diatribe of hate-filled personal attacks.

  12. If you behave like a homophobic pig then don’t act surprised when that’s what people call you. And yes when you state that marriage should only be allowed for heterosexuals, thats homophobic and discriminatory. Scott Brown is a typical republican, a hateful brain dead bigot.
