Special comments or bombastic drivel? I thought his Oct 18 "special comment" much more enlightening.
Olbermann: "One of the terrorists believed to have planned the 9/11 attacks said he hoped the attacks would be the beginning of the end of America. That terrorist, sir, could only hope. Not his actions nor the actions of a ceaseless line of terrorists, real or imagined, could measure up to what you have wrought...These things you have done, Mr. Bush, they would constitute the beginning of the end of America."
Olbermann quoting Bush: "With the distance of history, the questions will be narrowed and few. Did this generation of Americans take the threat seriously? And did we do what it takes to defeat that threat?"
Wise words and ironic ones, Mr. Bush -- your own, of course, yesterday in signing the Military Commissions Act. You spoke so much more than you know, sir. Sadly, of course, the distance of history will recognize that the threat this generation of Americans needed to take seriously was YOU.
Keith, sir, you're flat wrong. Sir.

11/1-about the Kerry thing

And Mr. Bush owes us an apology for this destructive and omnivorous presidency.

We will not receive them, of course.

This president never apologizes.

"And also here, we have institutionalized the terrorizing of the opposition. True domestic terror. Critics of your administration in the media, sir, receive letters filled with fake Anthrax. Braying newspapers, sir, applaud or laugh and reveal details the FBI asked to have kept quiet, and thus impede or ruin the investigation. A series of reactionary columnists, sir, encourage treason charges against a newspaper that published supposed 'national security information' that was openly available on the Internet. One radio critic receives a letter threatening the revelation of as much personal information about her as can be obtained and expressing the hope that someone will then shoot her with an AK-47 machine gun. And finally, a critic of the incumbent Republican Senator, a critic armed with nothing but words, is attacked by the Senator's supporters and thrown to the floor in full view of television cameras as if someone really did want to re-enact the intent, and the rage, of the day Preston Brooks found Senator Charles Sumner.

"Of course, Mr. President, you did none of these things. You instructed no one to mail the fake Anthrax, nor undermine the FBI's case, nor call for the execution of the editors of the New York Times, nor threaten to assassinate Stephanie Miller, nor beat up a man yelling at Senator George Allen, nor have the First Lady knife Michael J. Fox, nor tell John McCain to lie about John Kerry. No, you did not, sir. And the genius of the thing is the same as in King Henry's rhetorical question about Archbishop Thomas Becket: 'Who will rid me of this meddlesome priest?' All you have to do, sir, is hand out enough new canes. I'm Keith Olbermann. Good night and good luck."
And said with a straight face no less.

I find myself wondering what Olbermann's program will be about if and when a Democrat is elected president. My guess is that it will be about "Cancellation." What would the show be about, if not for Republican bashing?

I've seen most of his special comments. They seem to be more about Keith trying to prove to the world and himself that he is more than a smart-ass sportscaster. I liked him better on ESPN.

Rush, O'Reiley, and Coulter have jobs right now don't they? And they are much worse.

I like Olbermann and tend to agree with the things he's talking about, but I think he's gotten too pleased with the sound of his own voice with some of these speeches. They were exciting at first, and seemed more heartfelt to me. Now, it feels a little forced.

Maybe it's just me. Or maybe it's the "good night and good luck." A few invigorating speeches does not a Murrow make.
