Keith Olbermann usually reserves his scorn for the likes of George W. Bush, but, he says, “events insist” that he offer one of his “special comments” to Hillary Clinton over what he says appears to be a pattern of prejudice among her surrogates.

The “Countdown” host begins by offering a disclaimer: He owes his gratitude to the Clintons and this is not to be taken as an endorsement of Barack Obama. And then the gloves come off.

Even though Olbermann is a commentator by trade and Ferraro’s comments clearly struck a national nerve, it’s a bit surprising to see him speaking so frankly and so harshly about the Clinton campaign.
