Laura ingraham keith olbermann dating
A little over a year ago, Olbermann responded to some Coulter remarks by saying, “If this guy wants to live his life as a woman, I’m gonna back his choice up 100%.” Granted, Coulter had, herself, just questioned Olbermann’s own sexuality (and that of then- contributor Richard Wolffe), as well as made a cruel reference to Olbermann’s deceased mother, but as Olbermann now realizes, “It’s not a question of what THEY would do, it’s what WE do.” At the time, Olbermann didn’t apologize, or respond to criticism over the remark.
When confronted about it last night, though, he expressed regret: I wasn’t exactly sure this was an apology, but when Kate Doak (a contributor to my personal blog) also confronted him, asking “why have u used Transgenders as punchlines to slander others in the past?
Schultz, as my friend Greta Van Susteren observes, seems to get it.
Perhaps Keith Olbermann is on his way, too, but he’s not there yet.
To Olbermann’s credit, his recent feudin’ words (he recently called Schultz a “supposedly liberal commentator”) did not bleed over into his tweets about the Ingraham flap, keeping the focus where it belonged, on Schultz’s words: Olbermann, of course, has been accused of having his own problems with women, and some of those chickens came home to roost last night.
Olbermann wasn’t ready to apologize for calling Michelle Malkin a “mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it,” but he did take time to defend the remark, and engage in some passive-aggressive sparring with Malkin over it. But when confronted over his transphobic remarks about Ann Coulter, Olbermann did express some regret.
His responses provided a neat contrast to Schultz’s apology, particularly one involving right-wing firebreather Ann Coulter.” Olbermann replied,”I was wrong to do that, and I apologized for it here.” He’s apparently not ready, though, to reconsider his treatment of Carrie Prejean.
