On the February 27 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann awarded right-wing pundit Ann Coulter "the bronze" in his nightly "Worst Person in the World" segment for claiming, as Media Matters for America documented, that environmentalists want to create a world "where they -- the beautiful rich people -- live in their homes, and there are a few maids. Well-tempered maids will come in and take care of them." Coulter made her comments on the February 26 edition of Fox News' Hannity & Colmes, during which she also maintained that proponents of energy efficiency "want to kill humans" and that energy-efficient refrigerators are "not new energy" but, rather, a sign that "humankind is dying."
From the February 27 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:
OLBERMANN: That's ahead, but first, time for Countdown's latest list of nominees for Worst Person in the World.
The Bronze to Coulter-geist, snapping out of her winter-long slump to say something vaguely entertaining. She is one of the global warming deniers, claims it is a plot by environmentalists to create a world, quote, "where they -- the beautiful rich people -- live in their homes, and there are a few maids. Well-tempered maids will come in and take care of them." Maids, huh? Hey, Ann, you found your calling.
