Olbermann for President!

Kudos to Olbermann for standing up. Finally someone respectable in the news media put to words what many of us think. While his commentary needs no addenda, I would like to sum his commentary with a quote, which at times has been attributed to Thomas Jefferson: "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism."

I agree with you, he made some good points. A lot of people have been taking shots at Bush and everyone, but I think he came up with some of the better points I've heard. Was a good video clipping ^^

I love what Olbermann says in that video clip, but unfortunately his silly-ass antics hardly lend him an air of gravitas such as Murrow wielded.

BTW, good luck in your new job. Gainful employment is a nice thing…well, kinda. It’s nice to have money; not so nice having to do stuff like, get dressed everyday, or having to put up with other people’s shit everyday.

But the money’s nice.

Yeah, that's what I'm thinking - money's gonna be nice. I'm a little nervous, having to be polite to people all day. Gotten so used to being a cave bear :P

I quote Randal Graves when I say "This job would be great if it weren't for the fucking customers!"
