Olbermann: The runner up, commentator Morton Kondracke on FOX blasting Qwest for purportedly not cooperating this NSA phone record sweep that everybody else says never happened. Quoting him, "for a company to say opt out and say no, no, no, we're too privacy minded for this, you know, it‘s basically helping terrorists," unquote. No Mort, undermining our freedoms and making money off fear mongering, that‘s helping terrorists.
But our winner, I‘m telling you, somebody must be his friend, get an intervention going. Listen to this tortured logic from Bill O. Says his makeup artist was mugged on the streets of New York the other day. "Now,” he says, "who does that? Drug addicts, desperate for money. Nine out of 10 of these guys are drug addicts. So, she is a victim of the Mexican drug corruption. And all you have to do is multiply that by 10 million and you see how all of this corruption in Mexico has infected our society." The makeup artist was mugged, therefore, the mugger was a drug addict, therefore, the addiction is Mexico‘s fault, therefore—you lost me! I‘m surprised you didn‘t tie the mugging back somehow so me. Bill O‘Reilly, still today‘s “Worst Person in the World.”
