Keith Olbermann Takes On The Texas' Legislature's Tea Party Supermajority

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

We've never been the hugest fans of Keith Olbermann -- cable-shouting from the left can be as inchoate as cable-shouting from the right -- but we post this because it's about Texas.

Specifically about the new GOP supermajority in the House which, Olbermann says, represents "a Tea Party legislature The Nuge could be proud of."

He also calls Texas "a wholly owned subsidiary of the Tea Party," and discusses the situation with comedian/analyst Baratunde Thurston.

It's all a little too Dallas-centric for our tastes, but enjoy, nevertheless.
