    Yeah, though a little long, since Rep. Foxx comes last, being the "WORST" of Olbermann's 3 nightly picks. At the same time, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) as "WORSE" is very funny, a Member of Congress so stupid not to know even basic US history.

    But that alone wouldn't be so bad, if she didn't use those pathetically erroneous historical facts to attack Obama and the Democrats in statements on the floor of Congress. Too bad Olbermann couldn't read the true information into the Congressional Record following her, his corrections were hilarious.

    Olbermann is no brighter than Biden, let's be serious.He's only on the air because msnbc can't find a replacement.

    I actually heart Bachmann...and if you want someone who REALLY doesn't check their facts...go play with rachel maddow...

    I thought it was great. The woman certainly deserved this "honor".
    I hope she has learned from the experience (but I doubt it).

    You "heart" Bachmann? The woman is just to the right of Hitler and doesn't have enough common sense to fill a thimble. She's a loon.

    If you think Rachel Maddow's facts are wrong I think you should reconsider whether you got your money's worth out of your education.

    Okay, I'll go have my coffee now.

    Please cite the basis for your determination of insufficient "brightness" for both Keith Olbermann and for VP Biden, other than you don't like their opinions. What would be your benchmark for brightness? Former President Bush?

    "I actually heart Bachmann..." Is that a misspelling? You "love" her? As dim ol' Keith noted, she called the Smoot-Hawley Tariff the "Hoot-Smalley" and said it was the work of Democratic President Franklin Roosevelt, and was in force for 10 years, damaging the economy.

    Granted, she got the damaging the economy part right. But it was signed into law in 1930 during the Republican Hoover Administration, the work of 2 Republican Senators, named Smoot & Hawley (not Hoot & Smalley, who I think are C&W singers).

    It was FDR who urged the REPEALING of Smoot-Hawley as part of his New Deal legislation, accomplished in 1934 a year after he came into office, so she was wrong about the 10 years, too.

    She also said the mishandling of the first swine flu scare came during Jimmy Carter's Presidency, making a big point about both occurrences of this disease being during Democratic Administrations. Except swine flu was during Gerald Ford's Republican Administration, months before Jimmy Carter had even been elected President, and it was Ford who ordered emergency vaccinations, which tragically proved to be more deadly & disabling than the flu itself.

    That's just plain ignorance speaking, but what's worse is that she used these false statements to make political points in the House Chamber, read into the Congressional Record. These are facts to be found in any high school US history book, not to mention online.

    Every Member of Congress has a large staff that taxpayers fund, so even if she got elected on her looks alone, rather than based on some rudimentary knowledge of US government & history to bring to her job, she could have had the facts checked first before opening her mouth. And Olbermann & Maddow are worse than that HOW? You have examples?

    Wow - that woman (Foxx) should be tied to a fence & beaten. What an Asshole. She's probably on the whole "the holocaust was made up" bandwagon.

    Oh look. Another seemingly conservative apologist without a pic that shows who he is.

    Such a cliche. How's your "wide stance"? Text message any teenage boys lately? How many BJs on the down-low does it take to score enough crystal meth for an evening?

    Maddow is a comedian, like Jon Stewart. Know your context.

    P.S.: Those buddies at the golf club? Yeah, they're calling you a faggot when you're not around.

    Reed Smoot was a Senator from Utah. Willis Hawley was a Representative from Oregon.

    Correct, I should have said 2 Republican members of Congress, not the Senate. Incidentally, they were both defeated in the election of 1932. President Hoover had initially opposed their bill, proposed in both the House & Senate, and was lobbied by no less than Henry Ford to veto it, along with most major US banks, including JP Morgan, that great bastion of Capitalism. But Hoover caved to pressure from within his Republican Party and signed it.

    So Smoot-Hawley was not a Democratic bill, nor did FDR, who was years away from occupying the White House, having anything to do with enacting it, despite Rep. Bachmann's claims. It was FDR & the Democrats in Congress who repealed it, after it was in effect for about 4 years, not 10, another double contradiction with Bachmann's statement.

    US Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) is not only the worst person in the world but probably the dumbest person as well for making the horrible, irresponsible remarks that Matthew Sheppard's brutal murder was not a hate crime. I would love to know what planet this bumbling bitch was on when Matthew Sheppard was murdered. icon_mad.gif
