Keith Olbermann launched into the tea party during a 20-minute special comment that included a bumper-sticker-ready catch phrase: “Vote Backward, Vote Tea Party.” Olbermann reminded views that Tea Party candidates want to repeal public education, social security and the 14, 16th and 17th constitutional amendments.

The “Countdown” host railed against the movement, using an analogy to call their candidates, “a group of unqualified, unstable individuals who will do what they are told, in exchange for money and power, and march this nation as far backward as they can get, backward to Jim Crow, or backward to the breadlines of the ’30s, or backward to hanging union organizers, or backward to the Trusts and the Robber Barons.”
