While liberal bloggers cite Tom Tancredo's racist rant to support Olbermann's claims, conservative pundits like NewsReal's Paul Cooper argue Olbermann is projecting his own prejudice onto the Tea Party.
It’s clear that Keith Olbermann has some real issues. He is obsessed with race. He obviously has issues with his own dad’s prejudice and his own desire to label and judge people solely on the color of their skin. It might shock the man to realize that many Americans have moved beyond that way of thinking. At least we now know why Olbermann calls everyone he hates racist; he is revealing what lies in his own soul.
