I have said this a few times in the past and i don't mind saying it again. Yesterday's comments by Keith Olbermann were brilliant! I love the way he speaks truth to power! This segment was extra special because he came real close to telling the Shrub to "Shut the F*ck Up!" He didn't say it opting to replace the f-word with hell...Here check it out! From Crooks & Liars:

In an astoundingly ignorant interview with The Politico’s Mike Allen Tuesday, President Bush insinuated that electing a Democrat in November would lead to another attack on America, and revealed that he made the ultimate sacrifice by giving up golf shortly after the start of the Iraq War — the timing of which he lied about. Naturally, Keith ripped into him tonight — with all the anger and passion you’ve come to expect from a Special Comment — for continuing this despicable fear-mongering, and for failing to understand what true sacrifice is.
Do your part in telling President Bush to “shut the hell up”: Digg It!
“Mr. President,” he was asked, “you haven’t been golfing in recent years. Is that related to Iraq?
“Yes,” began perhaps the most startling reply of this nightmarish blight on our lives as Americans — on our history.
“It really is. I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the Commander-in-Chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be as — to be in solidarity as best as I can with them. And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal.”
Golf sends the wrong signal to the grieving families of our men and women butchered in Iraq?
Do you think these families, Mr. Bush - their lives blighted forever — care about you playing golf?
Do you think, Sir, they care about you?
You, Mr. Bush, let their sons and daughters be killed.
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you gave up golf?
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you didn't’t give up your pursuit of this insurance-scam, profiteering, morally and financially bankrupting war.
Sir, to show your solidarity with them - you didn't’t even give up talking about Iraq - a subject about which you have incessantly proved without pause or backwards glance, that you may literally be the least informed person in the world?
Sir, to show your solidarity with them, you didn't’t give up… your
4,000 dead Americans and your response… was to stop playing golf!
Not “gulf” - golf. MORE!
If Keith had anymore disgust in his voice I would have him nominated for an Emmy, i might still try and "lobby" for that! Check out the vid!
Get Em Keith! Keep putting the smack down on these criminal psychopaths!
