Olbermann Slams Levin, Hannity as 'Lunatic Right Wing'
On Monday's Countdown show, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann tagged conservative talk radio hosts Mark Levin and Sean Hannity as "lunatic right-wing" hosts, and Hannity as "not-so-smart." Responding to a recent joke Levin made on Hannity's radio show that the National Organization for Women is really the "National Organization of Ugly Women," Olbermann called Levin's show "psychotic" and charged that the conservative host "knows his ugly."
The MSNBC host's attacks on Hannity and Levin came during the Countdown show's regular "Best Persons" segment, which, contrary to its name, often includes people Olbermann means to be attacking, similarly to the show's "Worst Person" segment. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Monday, September 8, Countdown show on MSNBC:
KEITH OLBERMANN: And number one, best insight. Lunatic right-wing radio host Mark Levin phoning in to correct lunatic and not-so-smart right-wing radio host Sean Hannity. Hannity was blasting NOW, the National Organization for Women, calling it "the National Organization of Liberal Women." Levin corrected him, saying it was actually "National Organization of Ugly Women." Look carefully at this guy. If he owns a mirror or he listens to his own psychotic programs and can see his own soul, he knows his ugly.
