Wake Up: From The Mouth of Mr. Olbermann

"I accuse you, Mr. Bush, of lying this country into war. I accuse you of fabricating in the minds of your own people a false implied link between Saddam Hussein and 9/11. I accuse you of firing the generals who told you that the plans for Iraq were disastrously insufficient. I accuse you of causing in Iraq the needless deaths of 3,586 of our brothers and sons, and sisters and daughters, and friends and neighbors. I accuse you of subverting the Constitution, not in some misguided but sincerely motivated struggle to combat terrorists, but to stifle dissent. I accuse you of fomenting fear among your own people, of creating the very terror you claim to have fought. I accuse you of exploiting that unreasoning fear, the natural fear of your own people who just want to live their lives in peace, as a political tool to slander your critics and libel your opponents. I accuse you of handing part of this republic over to a vice president who is without conscience and letting him run roughshod over it." -- Keith Olbermann, 7/3/2007 (for a full transcript, go here)

Aw, DAMN. Thank you so much for posting this, my dear, incommunicado friend. This had passed beneath my radar, and I have been enriched for reading it. Check out the new bloggy-business 'o' mine at:

I miss you.

A bit long-winded, but certainly worth the effort to listen to.

And with the NYT Editorial Board FINALLY "seeing the light", I'm actually beginning to nourish some hope that the "mainstream media" is finally getting what many of us have known all along.
