On Thursday's Countdown, Keith Olbermann awards the bronze award to Rep. Michelle Bachman for her Let them eat cake moment of boasting about so many Minnesotans working longer hours and at more than one job. The silver goes to Glenn Beck for taking his WATB rants about a botched hemorrhoid surgery and extending it to a slam against Universal Health Care and then to FDR for being the president that ushered in more social programs than the Republicans have been able to destroy (though Universal Health Care was not one of them, but hey, it's Beck, we don't need no stinkin' facts). And finally, the gold goes to Mike Huckabee, for continuing his "The Constitution should be amended to fit the word of God" to do the typically inane biblically-based bash against same-sex marriage.
