Like their nonoptimal god, the propagandists at MSNBC somehow always manage to hit new lows. Lawrence O’Donnell dug to unexplored depths of clownish idiocy by making fun of Romney’s son Taggart’s name, then challenging him to a fist fight:
“You’re mad at President Obama for calling your father a liar?” O’Donnell asked rhetorically, a very heavy Irish-Boston accent suddenly present in his voice. “Let’s get something straight. He didn’t call your father a liar. I did. I’ve been saying all year that your father is a liar. I’ve repeatedly said that your father lies and is trying to lie his way into the White House.
“So, you want to take a swing at someone for calling your old man a liar? Take a swing at me. Come on. Come on,” O’Donnell challenged. “And don’t worry. There won’t be any Secret Service involved. Just us. And I’ll make it easy for you. I’ll come to you. Anytime, anywhere. Go ahead, Taggart. Take your best shot.”

If only Keith Olbermann were still around. He might challenge Ann Romney to a fistfight.
MSNBC could boost its dismal ratings by putting either O’Donnell or Olbermann get in the ring with Rachel Maddow. She could probably handle both at once.
