VIDEO-Olberman scores a direct hit

I SWEAR this guy is channeling Edward R. Murrow. I would say that today's Special Comment is the most honest, gripping statement I've heard on TV, but Olberman's previous comments ( here, here, here, here, and most especially here and here) have been equally incendiary.

PLEASE WATCH THIS.

    Too bad the only people who listen to Olberman and others like him are already anti-Bush.

    olberman needs a mirror. talk about being melodramatic… though bush might be wrong about how they think they are taking steps to protect us, i find it to be a far stretch saying he is worse than the terrorists.why the extremism? it's… getting… so… tiring… is it a dream to think the 2008 election will rid of us this? probably.flashback thought: this divide didn't start with bush – as much as people would like to say it did. it started when clinton lied about banging his intern and half the country wanted him to stay, and the other half leave.unfortunately, i don't see the end in sight. that is, unless we can get another democratic president that signs all the republican plans for the country. those were good times. ah, the clinton republican years…

Our forefathers fought a revolutionary war over the dream America. Since our country’s founding, countless men died fighting to protect our constitution, the document that makes us Who We Are. Osama bin Laden brought down two buildings, damaged the Pentagon and killed 2973 people. But he never hurt our constitution nor took away our liberties or freedoms. Instead, these greasy fat GOP perverts in Congress and that monkey in the White House did that job for him. They’ve eviscerated our civil liberties, severely impacted our freedoms to travel (been to an airport lately, Schomer?), eavesdropped on our conversations, tracked whom/where/when/why we’ve called, IT GOES ON AND ON.Worst of all, the Military Commissions Act of 2006, colloquially known as the "torture bill." It's a law even Stalin would admire, one that throws habeas corpus in the trash, legalizes a vast array of savage interrogation techniques and generally turns the president of the United States into a kind of turbocharged Yoruba witch doctor, with nearly unlimited snatching powers. The bill is a fall-from-Eden moment in American history, a potentially disastrous step toward authoritarianism — but what is most disturbing about it, beyond the fact that it's happening, is that PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE STILL BLAMING EVERYTHING ON BILL CLINTON.

    Schomer, I just re-read my comment and it comes off as aggressive, more
    so I think than is warranted. Also, I re-read your comment and realized that it didn't say what I thought it did when I first read it. Though there are many whom reflexively
    blame Bill Clinton for everything from 9-11 to killer bees, I don’t
    think you are blaming Clinton for this current partisanship. You are
    merely pointing to what you consider the starting point: the divide
    between the country of the part that didn’t care and wanted Congress to
    drop it, and the ones that thought he should be tossed out of the White
    House. I don’t
    know if I agree that this was the advent of the pernicious partisanship
    currently infecting most of D.C., though I would definitely agree that
    it was a spike, the aftershocks of which are still being played out
    daily on Fox News and in within the Halls of Power. I, personally,
    remember this divide. I remember getting into long, loud arguments with
    my conservative friends, who seemed fixated on what I and others
    considered a Presidential Perk: blowjobs from interns. One
    product of this divide was MoveOn.org, an organization started to get
    the country to censure the President and MOVE ON. MoveOn is still with
    us today, doing good political organizing and get-out-the-vote (GOTV)
    efforts.
