North Carolina - axis of evilOn last night’s Countdown, Keith Olbermann attacked Newt Gingrich for criticizing President Barack Obama’s response to Kim Jong-il’s recent missile launch. Olbermann claimed Newt had no problem with the past “8 years of doing nothing about North Carolina” (video below).

When Olbermann eventually corrected himself, he laughed it off as a “blooper.”

That’s all well and good, except Olbermann is never as lenient on his victims. Forget the countless times he has admonished George Bush for simply mispronouncing words. During the 2008 Presidential election, Olbermann portrayed McCain as senile for mixing up Sunni & Shiite (video bottom). And even though McCain also corrected himself, Olbermann took issue even with that saying it was actually Joe Lieberman who corrected him.

But did Olbermann really correct himself? Normally when you misspeak you immediately correct yourself so why did it take him a full minute to do so? This lends me to believe a producer corrected him in his earpiece.

Keith Olbermann tonight’s worst hypocrite in the world!!!
