Keith Olbermann delivered a 'Special Comment' in his Thursday evening broadcast on the subject of lying, specifically that committed by members of the Administration, up to and including President Bush. His Thursday 'Special Comment' was among the longest he has produced on his MSNBC show Countdown. A full transcript is available here.
"It is startling enough that such things could be said out loud by any President at any time in this nation's history," Olbermann said. "Rhetorically, it is about an inch short of Mr. Bush accusing Democratic leaders, Democrats, the majority of Americans who disagree with his policies, of treason."
He concluded by addressing the President directly, saying "You want to preserve one political party’s power. And obviously you will sell this country out, to do it... [D]o not throw this country's principles away because your lies have made it such that you can no longer differentiate between the terrorists and the critics."
