We Do Have Our Own Edward R. Murrow

Crooks and Liars has the transcript and the video of Olbermann's lates commentary.  Go read at least.  Watch if you have broadband.

After calling the statements Bush made at three fund raisers this past week outright fabrications--statements accusing Democrates of preferring to wait until we are attacked again to take action--Olbermann goes on to express is outrage that, in the name of protecting our freedom the President is doing all in his power to shred our Constitutional liberties.

Olberman reminds Bush of his plea to all Americans just 25 days ago on 9.11 to work together in a new unity and then goes on to say:

You have dishonored your party, sir — you have dishonored your supporters — you have dishonored yourself.

But tonight the stark question we must face is - why?

Why has the ferocity of your venom against the Democrats, now exceeded the ferocity of your venom against the terrorists?

Why have you chosen to go down in history as the President who made things up?

In less than one month you have gone from a flawed call to unity, to this clarion call to hatred of Americans, by Americans.

If this is not simply the most shameless example of the rhetoric of political hackery, then it would have to be the cry of a leader crumbling under the weight of his own lies.

You have to watch and listen to it though to really get the full flavor.  The passion and fierce contempt for the hypocracy and blatant lies upon lies upon lies do not come through in the transcript..

Finally!  We have our own Edward R. Murrow.  But is it in time?  Will enough people listen and finally see through the veils of deception and stop letting this fearmonger terrorize us into shreading our Constitution, our dignity and our credibility?
