Keith Olbermann dubs Sarah Palin 'Worst Person in the World'
While speaking outside Chicago this week, half-term former Alaska Governor and Tea Party darling Sarah Palin made fun of MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and the entire network.
That's two things you do not do unless you are trying to incur the wrath of Keith Olberman, who was hugely responsible for getting Rachel on the MSNBC.
Describing a store clerk who found out someone was from Alaska, Palin said the clerk: "turns beet red and the veins pop out in her neck. Kinda like Rachel Maddow does sometimes. Now watch, that clip's gonna be on, on the air for her dotcom. Increase her ratings."
Palin also told the Illinois crowd, "I'm glad to be here on the president's home turf ... somebody told me, 'You know, you're going into enemy territory.' I said, it's Chicago, it's not MSNBC."
"That woman is an idiot," Olbermann countered. "And the event at which that idiot spoke was sponsored by an Illinois firm that specializes in battery-operated back-up sump pumps."
He added that Palin was a coward for not showing her face on his and Maddow's network home.
"That woman does not have the courage, personal or political, to appear on MSNBC, not without an army with her (and I mean that literally)," Keith says.
Oh, them's fighting words. And we're putting our bets on Keith.
