Dude, Where is My Country?…….

For the last three years, Keith Olbermann has been slowly making his way to the head of the class.  Today, he has arrived.   Olbermann is not your typical journalist.  To illustrate this point, here is a humorous run down of the unspoken rules of the polite, Washington press corps, courtesy of Stephen Colbert during his much talked about monologue for the White House Correspondents Dinner:

But, listen, let’s review the rules. Here’s how it works: the president makes decisions. He’s the Decider. The press secretary announces those decisions, and you people of the press type those decisions down. Make, announce, type. Just put ’em through a spell check and go home. Get to know your family again. Make love to your wife. Write that novel you got kicking around in your head. You know, the one about the intrepid Washington reporter with the courage to stand up to the administration. You know – fiction!


In today’s political climate, honesty has become an acquired taste–and it’s not for everyone, but if you are tired of all that sugar give this a try.  For starters, here is Mr. Olbermann’s special comments concerning the use of inflammatory rhetoric by President Bush to justify the ever expanding  War on Terror.  This is his assessment of the government’s pitiful response to Katrina

Tonight, Mr.Olbermann summed up what has gone so wrong with his special comment on 9/11-five years later.  Mr. Olberman chose the riskier path and told the truth instead of repeating the myth.  The experience left me speechless and gave me hope that my country may have found a way out of the fog.
