(MSNBC) (Newser) – Having gotten a nice rise out of some tea partiers to kick off his week, Keith Olbermann couldn't help but take a dig at Sarah Palin last night. In a tease to commercial on Countdown, Olbermann opines about how "many tea partiers believe Sarah Palin will be a tool to unseat impure Republicans and Democrats and usher in the Rapture, or something." Republicans and Democrats also believe she could be a tool, he continues. "Do I need to point out what everybody seems to agree on about her?" Watch here.
