On the June 6 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann honored Lee Rodgers, co-host of KSFO's The Lee Rodgers & Melanie Morgan Program, with the "bronze" in his "Worst Person in the World" segment for asserting on KSFO the previous night that, "in those spike-heeled boots of hers," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice " looks like the hostess at an S&M parlor," as Media Matters for America documented. On Countdown, Olbermann quoted Rodgers -- who, Olbermann said, is "best known as the flunky for the infamous San Francisco right-wing water carrier Melanie Morgan" -- and concluded, "[A] right-wing host is trashing a right-wing secretary of State."

From the June 6 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

OLBERMANN: First, time for Countdown's latest list of nominees for Worst Person in the World: the bronze to Lee Rodgers, best known as the flunky for the infamous San Francisco right-wing water carrier Melanie Morgan. You want to know who the far right is next throwing under the bus? Simply identify whom Mr. Rodgers was talking about when he said, quote, "the woman has morphed into Madeleine Halfbright, and in those spike-heeled boots of hers, she looks like the hostess at an S&M parlor."

Correct: Condoleezza Rice -- a right-wing host is trashing a right-wing secretary of State.
