Both very earned admissions.

Why would you ever want to switch off the unintentional comedy that is MSNBC? In case anyone missed it, the Huffpo link below has a youtube clip of Olbermann in an open mic moment and Joe Scarborough's response. Also a clip there of Scarborough snapping on his own program this morning at Hardball/Countdown correspondent David Schuster (I).

Joe Scarborough Vs. Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews On McCain's Gains In The Polls

Yeah, I saw that earlier on Olbermannwatch. I wish I had words for how much I dislike Olbermann and for how much of an idiot he is. It's indescribable.

I am not American, and so perhaps it is not my place to say it but this:-

...strikes me as at best simplistic, at worst an advocation to censor out pretty much any critique of Obama's experience.

It is a simple fact that Obama is less experienced than most recent US Presidential candidates. I personally STILL think he is a better candidate than McCain - but let's get real here, his political experience is really quite limited.

Which august institution co-incided with his cocaine, and which with his Jim-Beam-and-chewed-baccy phases?

C-Span. All the speeches live, uncut and without any commentary laid over top.

You could always watch it on NBC with Brian Williams
















Ahem. Anyway, I wonder how many average Janes and Joes unlike the political junkies here in FYM are watching this convention, and will be watching the Republican convention. I honestly hope large numbers are watching both, at least trying to be engaged.

Man it feels good to be a Virginia Democrat. Four years ago I NEVER thought I'd say that.

Kucinich, great speech.

Nails it.

Nails the neo-con scum, the war profiteer scum and the war contractor scum for the evil SCUM that they are. The only one currently in the Dems that will talk truth to corrupt power.

Doubtless, this speech will be regularly replayed on yer CNN and yer Fox.
