"This president must apologize"
Posted by Jill | 10:12 PM
Keith pulls no punches in this special comment -- not even where that hypocritical whore John McCain is concerned. Bravo to Mr. Olbermann for refusing to my the McCain mythos, when whatever "straight talk" McCain may have ever stood for has been abandoned by the side of the road, jettisoned in the name of McCain's sick hunger for the presidency.

UPDATE: A Thursday editorial in the New York Times says much the same thing, only with less passion:

But when candidates for lower office make their opponents out to be friends of Osama bin Laden, or try to turn a minor gaffe into a near felony, that’s just depressing. When the president of the United States gleefully bathes in the muck to divide Americans into those who love their country and those who don’t, it is destructive to the fabric of the nation he is supposed to be leading.

This is hardly the first time that Mr. Bush has played the politics of fear, anger and division; if he’s ever missed a chance to wave the bloody flag of 9/11, we can’t think of when. But Mr. Bush’s latest outbursts go way beyond that. They leave us wondering whether this president will ever be willing or able to make room for bipartisanship, compromise and statesmanship in the two years he has left in office.

There's no need to wonder. We already know the answer.

Fasten your seatbelts, folks. Whatever happens next Tuesday, it's going to be ugly.
