The Lone, Brave Voice of Keith Olbermann

When you were a kid, did you have a favorite movie? A movie that you liked so much that you tried to be like one of the characters?

Keith Olbermann has a movie like that. It's called Good Night and Good Luck. But someone who cares about Keith needs to tell him that this is not the 1950s, George W. Bush is not Joe McCarthy, and he's not Edward R. Murrow. Because this is just getting embarrassing.

From his most recent rant:
Whatever the true nature of al Qaeda and other international terrorist threats, to ceaselessly compare them to the Nazi State of Germany serves only to embolden them. . . .

It thus becomes necessary to remind the President that his administration's recent Nazi "kick" is an awful and cynical thing.

And it becomes necessary to reach back into our history, for yet another quote, from yet another time and to ask it of Mr. Bush:

"Have you no sense of decency, sir?"
But wait! What's this?


I wonder if Democrats will use it as a slogan for upcoming elections. "Comparisons of Islamofascists to Nazis are beyond the pale, and yes, we are tough on terror."
