In a tirade with far too many lines to quote, Keith Olbermann again laid claim to the mantle of Time's Person of the Year award as he is one of far too few voices on the airwaves to stand up to the bully occupying the White House. As always, Crooks and Liars is on the case and has not only the video, but a full transcript as well.
I give you a few brief passages that I found especially poignant:
There is tonight no political division in this country that he and his party will not exploit, nor have not exploited; no anxiety that he and his party will not inflame.
There is no line this President has not crossed — nor will not cross — to keep one political party, in power.
He has spread any and every fear among us, in a desperate effort to avoid that which he most fears — some check, some balance against what has become not an imperial, but a unilateral presidency.
A brief reminder, Mr. Bush - you are not the United States of America. You are merely a politician whose entire legacy will have been a willingness to make anything political.
Thanks again, Keith.
