Keith Olbermann's Special Comment



Keith Olbermann, last night delivered one of his Special Comments on his show, Countdown.

Mr. Bush, you have hidden behind the General's skirts, and today you have hidden behind the skirts of 'the last question' at a news conference, to indicate once again that your presidency has been about the tilted playing field, about no rules for your party in terms of character assassination and changing the fabric of our nation, and no right for your opponents or critics to as much as respond."

That, Sir, is not only unAmerican -- it is dictatorial.

And in **pimping** General David Petraeus, Sir, in violation of everything this country has been assiduously and vigilantly against for 220 years, you have tried to blur the gleaming **radioactive** demarcation between the military and the political, and to portray **your** party as the one associated with the military, and your opponents as the ones somehow antithetical to it.

Love the new site L.T. It's fabulous!!!
Now for Shrub he IS a dictator and he DOES hide behind skirts BIG COWARD that he is!!! I'm going to go off the topic too, for a little. I would like to know what do you think about the Jena 6 in Louisiana? Let me know when you can. Keep up the good work!!!

The new layout looks great. That Olbermann commnet was right on as they usually are. When are the Democrats going to step up and do something about this?

Snave said...

New site looks good!

I think Olbermann is a freedom fighter. One of the few ones we have in the media, for sure.

Honestly-If I wasn't a pretend nun, I would fall in lust with Keith Olbermann. When was the last time any of us has seen a man who can speak with such passion? I really think of him as a patriot-he's not letting the dirty deed of Bush remain hidden.

He really is amazing.

Olbermann, Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher ... if only they were running things.

At least Al Franken is running for office.

Classic TV from the best show today.

Tom Harper said...

Great speech by Keith Olbermann. I just hope he doesn't end up in Gitmo. We need him here.

It was most excellent. If it weren't for Keith Olbermann I'd probably have kicked in my TV screen by now.

Lizzy said...

That is one of Olbermann's best "Special Comments" ever, and that's saying a lot because they are all brilliant.

Thanks FTF and I have given the post I said I would do in answer to your question.

Thanks parson and I feel that Olbermann did a great job with the special speech. As for the Dems. I guess time, that we really don't have will tell.

Thanks snave and yes, Olbermann tells the truth and some don't like the truth.

Thanks Emmanuel M Liu.

Mary Ellen, you called it... speaking with such passion!

Candace I have a feeling that Franken will win!

You are so right Larry.

Tom, I don't think Bush has the nerve to put this guy away in Gitmo.

PoliShifter, dont do that, then you want be able to see it when this President walks away from his last day in office.

Lizzy, you may be right!

I feel like I'm beginning to understand my conservative adversaries and in their eyes, they do own the military. It is the very foundation of their worldview; strict, authoritarian, heirarchy, reward and punishment, might over right, etc. They will and are bankrupting our country to fund it. So many of our rational arguments fall unheard by them. Of course, the military is to protect EVERY American, even the ones who don't buy the conservative worldview, and we have to remind them of that. They don't see their attacks against "liberals" as hypocrisy. They are fighting us every day to preserve their worldview. We are their enemy, their demons. They believe they are good and we are evil. So of course, we must not attack their good, and they are free to attack evil. Yes, it's ridiculous, but true. We have to realize that we are their enemy, without making them our enemy--we must battle their immoral actions.

I feel that the only way to oppose the Republicans are to vote them out of office. Then the problem that we face from them want matter.
