Melanie Morgan has created an online petition to suspend MSNBC's Keith Olbermann for calling Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham "troop haters."

Here's the transcript.
OLBERMANN: I cannot imagine that kind of evil knee-jerk reflex. I feel very sorry for those that have shown it. It seems to me these right-wingers have inadvertently shown their true colors, their instinctive hatred for, and contempt for those self-sacrificing Americans who have been needlessly placed in harm's way and the politicians they support.

They hear criticism of our nation's collective conduct in Iraq, and they immediately assume it's the fault of the soldiers. In the wake of an insult that exists only in their minds and never in my words or in my heart, there remains I think only one question to ask: Laura Ingraham and Mark Levin, why do you hate our troops?
As you may recall Mr. Olbermann has been particularly unkind to our other Townhall friends Mary Katharine and Hugh Hewitt. He's declared both them "Worst Person In the World" on separate occasions.

(Not that anyone here watches his rants.)
