On the March 7 edition of MSNBC's Countdown, host Keith Olbermann named radio host Rush Limbaugh the runner-up in his daily "Worst Person in the World" segment for saying that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) "sounds like a screeching ex-wife." Olbermann added that Limbaugh should be familiar with the issue of ex-wives, as "Rush has three of them."

Limbaugh made his remark, as documented by Media Matters for America, during the March 3 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show.

From the March 7 edition of MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann:

OLBERMANN: The runner-up, speaking of wrecking balls, Rush Limbaugh, on radio discussing the, quote, "Hillary fear" that America should have a Clinton run or of a Clinton run in '08. Quote, "When she's genuine, she sounds like a screeching ex-wife. And, my friends -- and I don't say that -- there's nothing against ex-wives or women. I'm just trying to be descriptive here for you. Men will know what I mean by this."

Well, Rush would -- "men who have ex-wives." Rush has three of them.
