Who said leftists are opposed to the death penalty? It's just a question of who's being hung. . .
Many Americans might wax nostalgic for the long lost America immortalized in Norman Rockwell's Saturday Evening Post cover drawings. Not Keith Olbermann. He longs for the good old days when people like Rush Limbaugh . . . could be strung up. Here's the Countdown host tonight, speaking with Air America's Rachel Maddow:
KEITH OLBERMANN: Legally, we've come a very long way since the Haymarket bombing in Chicago in 1886 when we wound up hanging some anarchist writers, who were not even in the state, as murderers by proxy. And legally there is this question of "temporal remoteness" [separation in time between the statement and the act]. You say this now on the radio, it happens in August. It's not like yelling "fire!" in a crowded theater; it is protected speech. But do you think that Limbaugh has any idea that were he to repeat what he said on the air, say the day before the convention, or during it, he might actually be morally or legally responsible for incitement to riot?

Olbermann regrets Rush can’t be hung ping to Today show list.
Rush should sue for libel.....it’s the RECREATE 68 group who’s pushing for riots....and Sharpton....
You do realize that by watching Olbermann, you’re improving his ratings by 50%?
Olbermann. German for “Weasely little Nazi termite.”
I doubt very much he can even spell the word responsibility much less have any understanding of what the word means.
No way, thanks.
I ain't gonna ruin my evening by watching those two dykes drool all over each other.
More unbiased, non partisan reporting from your friends in journalism. :D
I’m nostalgic for the days when KO was worth watching.
If Dems riot it’ll be Limbaugh’s fault? Rank-and-file rage at their leaders’ impotence and inconsequence won’t be directed at the Dean, Obama, the Clunktons, Reid, adn Pelosi? So confusing...
Good God I despise this worthless piece of sh*t. No wonder this worthless clown gets zero ratings.
He’s nothing but a hateful, leftist prick.
Not to mention the reduction in IQ points. ;-)
You mean tick.
Well, I'm nostalgic for the days when those like olbermann could be tarred, feathered, then run out of town on a rail.
Yo Keith, are you saying Rush has the horsepower to incite dems to riot against other dems? It ain’t gonna be Rush’s folowers out there rioting.
I never knew Olbermann was so blame **FAT** until I saw a clip of him walking onto the Letterman show stage the other day. BLIMEY he is a walking plump WOODTICK that just fell off a dog!
Olberman’s a racist.
He wants to HANG Rush?
With a NOOSE?
Haven’t we learned that nooses (Jena) are a symbol of black hatred? Therefore hanging is now racist.
