Had to fight his way through tough streets of Boston?
Lawrence O’Donnell’s on screen theatrics have been featured here frequently:
- How nasty will the general election race card get? This nasty
- Lawrence O’Donnell lectures Herman Cain on how to be black in the segregated South
- Condi Rice v Lawrence O’Donnell
- “Olbermann Without A Sense of Humor” Now The Face of MSNBC
O’Donnell is far more twisted than any of the other MSNBC hosts. Chris Matthews, by comparison, is a model of self-control.
O’Donnell grew up having to fight in his neighborhood? Okay. Here’s part of his Wikipedia bio:
O’Donnell was born in Boston on November 7, 1951; the son of Frances Marie (née Buckley), an office manager, and Lawrence Francis O’Donnell, Sr., an attorney. He attended St. Sebastian’s School ’70, where he was captain of his baseball team, and graduated from Harvard College in 1976. While at Harvard, he wrote for the Harvard Lampoon and was popular among its members due to his wit and sarcasm. [footnotes omitted]
Those must have toughened young Lawrence up to fight for his life on the mean streets of Boston:
“In our family, my mother was the sophisticate,’’ said her son Lawrence O’Donnell Jr. of Santa Monica, Calif., who hosts “The Last Word’’ on MSNBC. “She was the one who always went to the Boston Ballet and took us to the theater. She liked the opera and all sorts of things I could never bring myself around to liking.’’
Please MNSBC, get the man some help.
Update: O’Donnell reminds me of this:
