Keith blasts Robertson and Limbaugh for their hate filled, insane comments after the earthquake hit in Haiti.

Olbermann: Even the worst of us in this political mosh pit of the early 21st century can stop on occasion in grief and human sympathy in mourning or just in self-preservation. Not Rush Limbaugh and not Pat Robertson. We'll explore this at length later, but, Mr. Robertson, it is laughable now to try to call him Reverend, explained today that this earthquake is the result of a “deal with the devil” that he claims the nation made in the 19th century to gain its freedom from France. “True story,” Robertson says. Sir, because of your tone deafness, and your delight in human misery, and your dripping, self-satisfied, holier-than-thou, senile crap, I am now likelier to believe that you are the Devil.

Limbaugh, meantime, did not know when to just shut up. Today he blamed communism for the poverty of Haiti, blamed President Obama for holding a news conference the day after this cataclysm, when he did not hold one after the failed, half-assed terror attempt in Detroit, and said Mr. Obama would use Haiti to 'burnish their, shall we say, credibility with the Black community in the both “light-skinned and dark-skinned Black community in this country”.

Mr. Robertson, Mr. Limbaugh. Your lives are not worth those of the lowest, meanest, poorest of those victims still lying under that rubble in Haiti tonight. You serve no good. You serve no god. You inspire only stupidity and hatred, and I would wish you to hell, but knowing how empty your souls must be for you to be able to say such things in a time of such pain, I suspect the vacant purposelessness of the lives you both live now are hell enough already.
