Second Chances?

Keith says Barack now has a second chance, not mentioned but also true is that it also gave Keith a second chance. How did he do? A petty crime?


Dems Set To Cave on FISA Again: Agree to Family Immunity Plan
Glenn Greenwald responds
Plenty of Beltway institutions already existed for the purpose of cheering on any and all Democrats no matter what they do. If that's all that blogs are supposed to do, then there is no need for them. From the beginning, blogs have been devoted to opposing Democratic complicity and capitulation -- to protesting the lack of Democratic responsiveness to their supporters -- every bit as much as opposing GOP corruption and media malfeasance. That role is at least as important as the others.

A presidential election is a unique time when Americans are engaged in a discussion over our collective political values (at least more engaged than any other time). Why would anyone watch the Obama campaign use this opportunity to perpetuate and reinforce this narrative, and watch Obama embrace polices that are the precise antithesis of the values he espoused in the past, and not criticize or object to that? Criticisms of that sort aren't unhealthy or counter-productive. They're the opposite. Of course one ought to object if a political candidate -- even Barack Obama -- is advocating policies that trample on one's core political values or promulgating toxic narratives. That's particularly true since his doing so isn't necessary to win; it's actually more likely to have the opposite effect.

There is no question, at least to me, that having Obama beat McCain is vitally important. But so, too, is the way that victory is achieved and what Obama advocates and espouses along the way. Feeding distortions against someone like Wesley Clark in order to please Joe Klein and his fact-free media friends, or legalizing warrantless eavesdropping and protecting joint Bush/telecom lawbreaking, or basing his campaign on demonizing MoveOn.org and 1960s anti-war hippies, is quite harmful in many long-lasting ways. Electing Barack Obama is a very important political priority but it isn't the only one there is, and his election is less likely, not more likely, the more homage he pays to these these tired, status-quo-perpetuating Beltway pieties

Krugman On McCains Fanciful Plan



A Supreme Court Justice, Worst Person?

Bill Moyers Takes On O'Reilly Producer

The shorter version.

A Special Comment

The story is another non-story the press and partisans will try to make into to something more. A story like this in the hands of a Keith Olbermann might even elicit a Special Comment. It might sound something like this.

"I had an uncle who was one of the, um, who was part of the first American troops to go into Auschwitz and liberate the concentration camps. And the story in our family is that when he came home he just went up in the attic and he didn't leave the house for six months."

You actually invoked the nightmare of the holocaust.

Auschwitz?

He actually said that word.

We have forgiven you your Reverend Wright and his damn America

We have forgiven you your Tony Rezko your Bill Ayers.

We have forgiven your wife for her recent conversion to the greatness of our country.

We have forgiven you the abscence of a flag pin on your lapel.

We have forgiven you the disrespect you showed the citizens of West Virginia not bothering to even ask for their votes, writing them off as not worth your time.

We have forgiven you the clinging, the religion, the guns.

We have forgiven you the Harry and Louise ads and your compromise on healthcare before the fight has begun.

But Senator we can not forgive you for this.

We cannot forgive you this -- not because it is crass and low and unthinking and wrong.

The politics of this nation is steeped in enough torture, Senator Obama, you cannot and must not invoke the imagery! Anywhere!

This, Senator, is too much.

Because a senator - a politician - a person who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that he would use the horrors of Auschwitz to get elected - has no business being, and not capacity to be, the President of the United States.

Good night and good luck.

Well said Mr. Olbermann

A Not So Special Comment

Contributed by Charles Lemos

note: Contributor's words are their own, and while I may agree in general with the sentiments expressed, I reserve the right to quibble with specific details and tone.

Keith Olbermann, The opening salvo was quite enough. I didn’t watch your Special Commentary beyond the “I am not here endorsing Senator Obama’s nomination.” Then and there whatever you had to say was clearly a joke. You have some nerve to pretend that you are “fair and balanced.” Your competition is more “fair and balanced” than you are. You have been advocating for Obama for over a month. Why pretend that you are not? You made that evident weeks ago.  You are the national spokesman for Obama. Come on, admit it Obama gives you a woodie, doesn’t he? You’re the leading Obamamaniac so much that your colleagues are talking about it. It is hard to hide your emotions as you and Tweety go ga-ga over Obama. Watch the video tape. And the DailyKos column hasn’t helped. Pity you are destroying your reputation in the balance of this campaign. Your ratings were on the upswing, now they have fallen back. Here you go: http://tvbythenumbers.com/2008/02/24/oreilly-vs-olbermann-through-thursday-february-21/2738Notice that they peaked just as you decided to go Obamabot on us. Enjoy the downfall. In economics, we call that sort of drop-off a cliff.

So my response as required. You’re a misogynistic ass.

Finally, as promised, a Special Comment on the presidential campaign of the Junior Senator from New York.
By way of necessary preface, President and Senator Clinton — and the Senator’s mother, and the Senator’s brother — were of immeasurable support to me at the moments when these very commentaries were the focus of the most surprise, the most uncertainty, and the most anger. My gratitude to them is abiding.

[I am sure they will send you a thank you note soon, too]

Also, I am not here endorsing Senator Obama’s nomination, nor suggesting it is inevitable . [No you do that every other night so why be repetitive?]

Thus I have fought with myself over whether or not to say anything.
Senator, as it has reached its apex in their tone-deaf, arrogant, and insensitive reaction to the remarks of Geraldine Ferraro… your own advisors are slowly killing your chances to become President. Senator, their words, and your own, are now slowly killing the chances for any Democrat to become President.

[Actually more like your desperation is because her numbers are rising, but whatever]

Bill O'Reilly of course but he really really deserves it this time. Rush Limbaugh was a very close second and Woolworths a distant third for the bronze.
