Must. Watch. Keith. Keith’s Special Comment. Must. Watch. Best Ever! Please Pass It On. Keith. King of Truths
Holy frackin’ shit.
Have you seen our man Keith Olbermann’s latest special comment?
By great Odin’s beard, it kicks ass. It’s the best yet, and he says what we really need our candidates, our Senators and Representatives, our traditional media folk to say, I’m serious. Watch it now. Pass it on.
Here’s an excerpt:
Everything you said about Iraq yesterday, and everything you will say, is a deception, for the purpose of this one cynical, unacceptable, brutal goal — perpetuating this war indefinitely.
War today, war tomorrow, war forever!
And you are playing at it!
A man with any self-respect, having inadvertently revealed such an evil secret, would have already resigned and fled the country!
You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir.
And yet, yesterday at Al-Asad, Mr. Bush kept playing — and this time, using the second of his two faces.
The President told reporters, “They, (General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker) “tell me if the kind of success we are now seeing continues, it will be possible to maintain the same level of security with fewer American forces.”
And so, Mr. Bush got his fraudulent headlines today: “Bush May Bring Some Troops Home.”
While the reality is, we know from what he told Draper, that the President’s true hope is that they will not come home; but that they will stay there, because he is keeping them there now, in hope that those from his political party fighting to succeed him, will prolong this unendurable disaster into the next decade.
But, to a country dying of thirst, the President seemed to vaguely promise a drink from a full canteen — a promise predicated on the assumption that he is not lying.
Yet you are lying, Mr. Bush. Again.
It gets even better. Rest here:
Countdown Special Comment: You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir.
