This morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program, Lawrence O’Donnell proudly declared the obvious: he’s a socialist.
After hearing the news today about the suspension of Keith Olbermann from the same network, I can’t say anyone’s all that surprised.
“Unlike you, I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who’s so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to progressive. Liberals amuse me. I am a Socialist. I live to the extreme left – the extreme left – of you mere liberals.”
You have to give the guy credit for standing behind his views, and doing so openly. You have to respect him for that, at least.
