The Only Moral Confusion is on the Right

Keith Olbermann handed Donald Rumsfeld his hat last night by under-scoring the irony of invoking Neville Chamberlain when it was in fact Chamberlain who marginalized, ostrasized, and demonized critics of England's foreign policy (namely, Winston Churchill) just as Rumsfeld and the Republicans are striving to do now. There is some confusion going on and it has more to do with the hypocritical doublespeak of the Bush Administration, which confounds right and wrong to justify whatever it wants to do by any means necessary.

Listen to Olbermann's commentary and let the word go out that the font of immorality in America is not in the streets or on the internet; it is in the White House and in the halls of Congress. The November elections stand as our opportunity to shut that tap down.
