Keith Olbermann Rips Marco Rubio: "You Have Long Behaved Like a Teenager Who Borrowed His Father's Suit"
Marco Rubio borrowed a thought he credited to Glenn Beck at a rally Wednesday and had this to say about immigration: "There are millions of people in America that hate our country, so why can't we just do a trade? We'll send you Sean Penn, Janeane Garofalo, and Keith Olbermann, and you can send us people that actually love this country and want to help us build it."
"Mr. Rubio, you have long behaved like a teenager who has borrowed his father's suit. I think you don't understand this country. I think you imperil this country," Olbermann roared.
"I think your stupidity is an indictment of the educational system in this country. And I'm sure you feel exactly the same way about me. But what I would never claim about you is that you do not love this country. I would never even claim that in your own way you have tried to build it. You have the right to criticize anything you want about me or anybody else with whom you disagree politically."
It gets only more heated from there.
