Rush Limbaugh’s Take on Maddow Gets Olbermann Talking

countdown_8-21.JPGAlthough he didn’t end up with the Worst Person award last night (that spot reserved for Bill O’Reilly), Keith Olbermann put Rush Limbaugh in the “Worser” nod on Countdown last night for the radio host’s comment about the hiring of Rachel Maddow.

According to the segment, Limbaugh described Maddow as, “A failed left wing radio talk show host with no proven experience in garnering any audience at all, who has more testosterone.”

The quote actually continues, and seems to be made in the context of “our buddy,” Dan Abrams. “He’s losing his show to somebody with more testosterone than he has,” says Limbaugh. “It’s just a shame.”

Olbermann’s response: “That’s a lot of trash talk coming from a guy with Viagra, an IV of it, and no hair, and no TV show.”

Will the TV show-less Limbaugh take to his radio program (and his $400 million and 14+ million listeners), beginning live in a few minutes, to respond?
