Don't be surprised to soon see Keith Olbermann display a picture of Randi Rhodes on his "Worst Person In The World" segment while pompously intoning, "Have you no shame, madam?"
And what would be the cause for this "honor?" Well, yesterday Randi emerged briefly from radio obscurity to blast Olbermann's one hour special comment on ObamaCare that he delivered earlier this week. And it wasn't just a quick blast. She went on a rampage against him for her entire three hour show. To get an idea of the tone of the attack, here is what Randi posted on her blog:
Last night's Countdown on MSNBC was devoted to a one-hour "special comment" by Keith Olbermann. I always thought a comment was a brief observation. Evidently I was wrong about the "brief" part. I'm sorry, but that was the most self-indulgent hour I've heard since Emerson, Lake & Palmer broke up. Keith! Talking for an entire hour isn't a comment. It's a filibuster. Olbermann railed on for an hour about how we need healthcare reform. Keith, the best thing about stating the obvious is that you can state it pretty quickly. At least most people can. Watching that there were a lot of things I wanted to hear Keith Olbermann say. But mostly I wanted to hear him say "And in conclusion..."
Apparently Randi seems determined to alienate what few leftwing listeners she has left. The angry rants against her for daring to criticize Olbermann were posted at the Daily Kos as well as at the Democratic Underground here and here. Some samples of angry Kossack and DUer rants hurled at Randi:
She spent the whole three hours tearing down last night's Countdown on MSNBC devoted to a one-hour "special comment" by Keith Olbermann.
She railed on her radio show today that the one-hour commentary by Keith Olbermann last night as elitist and unintelligible.
It hurt to hear it. But, like witnessing a car wreck, I loyally listened the entire 3 hrs
I have heard randi complain that Keith steals all of her material.
Hmm... Keith stealing Randi's material? Now we know why he sounds so sanity-challenged.
A couple more comedic morsels:
She also took credit for the success of Keith and MSNBC. Later in the show she said that she, Randi, has no ego.
randi seems to be upset that keith never acknowledges her...
You can read even more leftwing invective hurled at Randi Rhodes for blasting Keith Olbermann over at the DUmmie FUnnies.
