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

Keith Olbermann - Special Comment

Now that was one hell of a 'Special Comment'. George W. Bush should be impeached, no skip that, he ought to be criminally prosecuted and serve some serious time in the Big House. I like it, from the White House to the Big House.

He's flirted with it he's used up all the nice ways of saying the president is lying. In this comment he speaks plainly. "Proved to be a liar, is lying, has been lying. . ."

Olbermann: Go to Iraq and fight, Mr. President

Then take it into your own hands, Mr. Bush.

Go to Baghdad now and fulfill, finally, your military service obligations.

Go there and fight, your war. Yourself.

Resign - Keith Olbermann's Special Comment

Keith calls on the President and Vice President to resign.

It is nearly July 4th, Mr. Bush, the commemoration of the moment we Americans decided that rather than live under a King who made up the laws, or erased them, or ignored them—or commuted the sentences of those rightly convicted under them—we would force our independence, and regain our sacred freedoms.

We of this time—and our leaders in Congress, of both parties—must now live up to those standards which echo through our history: Pressure, negotiate, impeach—get you, Mr. Bush, and Mr. Cheney, two men who are now perilous to our Democracy, away from its helm.

For you, Mr. Bush, and for Mr. Cheney, there is a lesser task. You need merely achieve a very low threshold indeed. Display just that iota of patriotism which Richard Nixon showed, on August 9th, 1974.

Resign.

Keith Olbermann - Special Comment

Keith Olbermann tell's exposes Rudy Giuliani for what he is a scum-sucking opportunist. Interestingly John McCain took very direct shot at Rudy today. Can you believe it. The New York fire and police departments are still using the same radios they used on 9-11. The ones that didn't allow them to talk to each other.

Apologize Mr. President

Keith has another special comment and this time he doesn't hold back.

The President of the United States owes this country an apology.

It will not be offered, of course.

He does not realize its necessity.

There are now none around him who would tell him or could.
A war without a clue, indeed.
