Up-and-coming GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain was on Lawrence O'Donnell's MSNBC show late last week, and was (mis)treated to O'Donnell's disrespectful, outlandish line of questioning. You really need to watch this. The whole thing.
Any media personality who treated a minority candidate on the Left this way would be run out of town on a rail.
And the list of completely-out-of-context statements that Lawrence O'Donnell made would fill 10 blogs. He didn't serve in the military himself. Lawrence O'Donnell is buddies with draft-dodging former Commander-in-Chief Bill Clinton. John Kerry threw his military medals into a bonfire on the steps of the Capitol building when he got home from Vietnam. The list goes on.
The most important thing to take from this exchange is this: Herman Cain remains composed and is cordial with O'Donnell, even when Lawrence can't muster up enough respect to wipe the smug, condescending sneer off his stupid face.
