Scarborough Slams Olbermann Over Anti-Brown Tirade: 'Sad And Pathetic'

Not that they were BFFs before, but Joe Scarborough has now definitively de-friended Keith Olbermann . . .

As NewsBuster Noel Sheppard reported, Olbermann last night unleashed an absurdly over-the-top Special Comment at Scott Brown, calling him "an irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against woman and against politicians with whom he disagrees."

Joe Scarborough thereafter tweeted that Olbermann's Special Comment was "reckless and sad."  On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough fired similar remarks at his MSNBC colleague on live national TV . . .

JOE SCARBOROUGH: Look at two guys who have won big the last six months.  You've got Bob McDonnell in Virginia.  They tried to paint him as a right-wing crazy nut from Pat Robertson's university.  He flipped it away, cause, he flipped it away. Now, Scott Brown, they tried to do the same thing, said horrible things about him.  A certain person on this network whose name will not be mentioned went on a tirade, the likes of which, sad and pathetic.  It doesn't work!
