Early Morning Swim: Marsha Blackburn, Glenn Beck, Ann Coulter Not Worst Persons in the World
Posted in: Morning Swim
It really does all come down to pissing off liberals with this crowd.
U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is using her call out as MSNBC host Keith Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World” as a fundraising draw, saying she’s wearing it “like I’ve won a gold medal at the Olympics.”
Olbermann, well-known for his occasional “worst person” attacks, singled out Blackburn for her continued interest in permitting young people to privatize their Social Security contributions. He suggested the plan would allow young people to “get wiped out the next time the mortgage industry or some other form of legalized gambling wipes out a chunk of the economy.”
Why run on your legislative record, and what you’ve done for the people of your district?
Much better to run against that there teevee man, who says mean things about conservatives.
