10.  Special Comment, If the Tea Party Wins, America Loses

This was the kind of slanderous, over the top, hateful ravings that inspired our Meltdown with Keith Olbermann series in the first place.  But by October 2010, it just didn’t seem worth writing about.

This was about as newsworthy as rabid dog bites man. (If you had a case where a rabid dog had been running around for 3 years.)

Since every political commentator on MSNBC had taken 10th Amendment discussions out of context to hint that the Confederacy was on the rise, that racism was at the core of the Tea Party and even the Republican Party, Olby’s “Special Comment” a few days before the 2010 Shellacking was typically over-the-top, but… well, typical.

OLBERMANN:  …but to elect a group of unqualified, unstable individuals who will do what they are told, in exchange for money and power, and march this nation as far backward as they can get, backward to Jim Crow, or backward to the breadlines of the ‘30s, or backward to hanging union organizers, or backward to the trusts and the Robber Barons.

Result: the Tea Party.  Vote backward, vote Tea Party.  And if you are somehow indifferent to what is planned for next Tuesday, it is nothing short of an attempt to use Democracy to end this Democracy, to buy America wholesale and pave over the freedoms and the care we take of one another, which have combined to keep us the envy of the world.

Hold on to your hats, folks.  Democracy only has a few days left in this world…

Next: Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols and… Rush Limbaugh?
