Keith Olbermann: Janice Daniels is 'Worst Person in the World'

On Monday's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann," the political commentator singled out Troy's mayor.

If there were any lingering doubt that is getting national attention, political commentator Keith Olbermann squashed it when he named Daniels his "Worst Person in the World" for Dec. 5.

Olbermann called her out for her use of a gay slur in a Facebook status update. Daniels comes in ahead of Fox Business Channel's Eric Bolling and Gov. Rick Perry on Olbermann's list.

"How does this work so often in our country? You find a town with 20,000 people in it, or 40,000 people – or in Troy's case, 80,000 – and they've managed to elect the biggest moron in the town? The answer is, nobody pays attention."

He added, "Her odds of completing two months in office are declining."

It's more than her, shine the light toward the other city servants and you will see they are mostly bullies too and worse! Not all of them but no question, there is a systemic, institutional problem that is taught, maintained and covered from the top down. Go to every council meeting and tell them how you feel, it will be more effective than saying it on here! Call them, write them, email them, post on every blog. Shine the light in these dark spirits before it is too late! Good Luck Troy, you need it! WE'RE GOING TO BOYCOTT TROY http://boycotttroy.com

...It takes a village... ...and every village has an idiot... ...Mayor Daniels should resign as that IS what is best for Troy.

Your first paragraph is so right on. No doubt that other city workers/politicians mutter garbage BEHIND the scenes, they just don't get caught....unfortunately she did.

Keith Olberman is someone who works hard to educate himself on the issues before him. This gives him the solid footing to make such comments.

This mayor is not what we need representing troy at all. Recall her now.

It is too bad the citizens of Troy didn't pay attention to her character before the election. She and the Troy Citizen's United group who supported her ran a dirty campaign against the Library proposals and then for major and city council. Her character showed then, next time Troy pay attention BEFORE you vote! As Keith said, how could 80,000 people have "managed to elect the biggest moron in the town? The answer is, nobody pays attention." I couldn't agree more. I was floored that someone of Robin's experience and quality was defeated by Janice.

I don't think Keith's opinion means anything. Keep America straight.

Keith Olberman asking how 80,000 could elect the biggest moron in town? That's rich! Look what a majority of voters in the country did back in November '08.
