Them’s sound like fightin’ words!

If a slur liked that were targeted at Barack Obama or — God forbid! — his wife, there would be hell to pay. Whichever (ahem!) member of the fourth estate said something the distasteful to any member of the first family might be grounds for the Secret Service to spring into action … especially since the second sentence, “We will get you,” sounds like an out-and-out threat.

So which rabid right-wing “journalist” is responsible for this incendiary language toward the president? None — and it wasn’t toward the president, moreover. At least not the one who’s getting out of Dodge in a month.

The source, rather, was Keith Olbermann, and the source of his venom was President-elect Donald Trump, who took the liberty himself to ask a rather pertinent question of his soon-t0-be predecessor.

Obermann was in these pages on Tuesday to share his considered opinion that the U.S. is “at war with Russia” and that Trump is “their puppet.”

Time for Olbermann to go somewhere for a long, quiet rest.
