Keith Olbermann is an American Hero

I have never watched his program on MSNBC and I'm sorry for that. The following 12 minute "Special Comment" from Olbermann shows him channeling what very likely every intelligent American -- check that, every intelligent person in the whole world -- would have liked to say to George W. Bush after his laughable interview with Politico, during which he said that his big sacrifice to be in solidarity with the families of soldiers serving in Iraq was to give up his golf game. Olbermann practically spat out in response:
Your one, tone-deaf, arrogant, pathetic, embarrassing gesture, and you didn't even think of it yourself? The great Bushian sacrifice -- an Army private loses a leg, a Marine loses half his skull, 4,000 of their brothers and sisters lose their lives -- and you lose golf, and they have to pull you off the golf course to get you to just do that? (emphasis mine)

If it's even true.

Apart from your medical files, which dutifully record your torn calf muscle and the knee pain which forced you to give up running at the same time -- coincidence, no doubt -- the bombing in Baghdad which killed Sergio Vieira de Mello of the U.N. and interrupted your round of golf was on Aug. 19, 2003.

Yet CBS News has records of you playing golf as late as Columbus Day of that year, nearly two months later.
I found myself literally cheering as Olbermann got positively apoplectic with each example of Bush's insanity. And to think it was ladies like the one in my previous post, who can't be bothered with the reality that Obama is not a Muslim, who put this jackass in office.My favorite bit of this is that during the entire tirade, Olbermann continually addresses W as "Mr. Bush," not the traditional "Mr. President."
