You Must See This

Do not pass go, do not collect $200 - click here to head on over to Crooks & Liars and watch Keith Olbermann shame this administration and Donald Rumsfeld in advance of the Iraq = 9-11 that starts tomorrow. Thank you, Keith, for speaking out so eloquently on behalf of all of us in America who don't support the war (and are not ignorant or traitors) and to John at Crooks & Liars for getting this baby up so fast. The video is even more impressive than the transcript.

Here's the quote he used to close
Thus forgive me for reading Murrow in full:
"We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty," he said, in 1954."We must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law. We will not walk in fear - one, of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men; Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were - for the moment - unpopular."

To register your personal disgust over Rumsfeld's speech directly with the Department of Defense, call their comments line. The line is there for your comments and paid for with your tax dollars.

They do keep stats on what people call about, so your call will be counted.

(703) 697-5131 (and be nice to the nice lady at the other end of the line, she hates rumsfeld, too, you can tell!)
