Olbermann Names Bud Day 'World's Worst Person' For Calling Obama 'The Black One With The Reading Thing' (VIDEO)

Florida Governor and GOP senate candidate Charlie Crist proudly touted the endorsement of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth member Col. Bud Day. Unfortunately for Crist, Day immediately put his foot in his mouth by linking the skin color of President Obama to Crist's senate campaign opponent Marco Rubio.

Day said:

You know, we just got through (electing) a politician who can run his mouth at Mach 1, a black one, and now we have a Hispanic who can run his mouth at Mach 1. You look at their track records and they're both pretty gritty.

You've got the black one with the reading thing. He can go as fast as the speed of light and has no idea what he's saying. I put Rubio in that same category.

Olbermann nominated him for the his "Worst Persons in the World" award.
