Once again, Keith Olbermann knocks one into the upper deck with this Special Comment. He calls out the Republican Presidential campaign for exploiting 9/11 (despite being the party in charge at every level at the time of the attack) and John McCain for claiming to know how to catch Osama Bin Laden, but only at the end of next January, if he is elected president.
A personal note: watching the “tribute” videos at the RNC, Cindy & John McCain bragged about how they told each other they were older and younger than they were, respectively, when they met. Tee hee! Oh… wait… this is the party of FAMILY VALUES. And they’re telling the entire world on the teevee that their relationship began with lies from each side. The affair that began while John McCain was still married to his first wife.
The sheer hypocrisy, double-speak, fear-mongering, misdirection and outright lies of the Republican party and John McCain during this campaign are purely reprehensible. And the white-hot focus on, and airtime devoted to, this superficial bullshit like “flag pins” and “lipstick” (and boy, what an ignorant, pandering oaf this Jane Swift is, eh?) only serve to insult and enrage every half-intelligent person in the country.
Do you agree?
As for the video, Take 8 and observe, this is a must-watch.
