From one entertainer to another, the ‘Daily Show’s‘ Jon Stewart has some advice for Keith Olbermann: tone it down a bit.

Olbermann recently took to his show on MSNBC to rant about Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown, calling him an “irresponsible, homophobic, racist, reactionary, ex-nude model, teabagging supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees.”

Ouch!

Donning eye glasses and doing his best Olbermann impression, Stewart spoofed the news commentator with colorful language as he constantly changed his eyeglasses, from blinking New Year’s Eve celebration goggles to neon blue shades.

As for Olbermann’s name-calling toward Brown, Stewart referred to it as “the harshest description of anyone I’ve ever heard uttered on MSNBC, and that includes descriptions of the guys that star in your weekend prison program.”

Keith Olbermann responded with a quip to TV Newser saying, “It was a little bit of a ripoff of the Affleck thing, but overall, I’d give it a B-.”
