Keith Olbermann


Dick Cheney should leave

“Flatly, it may be time for Mr. Cheney to leave this country. You, Mr. Cheney, you terrified more Americans than did any terrorist in the last seven years, and now it is time for you to desist, or to be made to desist.”

The cooked books and faked threats

“As a final crash of self-indulgent non-sense, when the incontrovertible truth of your panoramic and murderous deceit has even begun to cost your political party seemingly perpetual congressional seats… When somebody asks you, sir, about the cooked books and faked threats you foisted on a sincere and frightened nation; when someone asks you, sir, about your gallant, noble, self- abnegating sacrifice of your golf game so as to soothe the families of the war dead; this advice, Mr Bush: Shut the hell up! Good night and good luck.”

Clinton bullied by “monkey posing as a newscaster”

“A past President, bullied and sandbagged by a monkey posing as a newscaster, finally lashed back…The nation’s marketplace of ideas is being poisoned by a propaganda company so blatant that Tokyo Rose would’ve quit……As with all the other nefariousness and slime of this, our worst presidency since James Buchanan, [President Bush] is having it done for him, by proxy. Thus, the sandbag effort by Fox News Friday afternoon.”

–referring to Bill Clinton’s interview with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace

War today, war tomorrow, war forever!

“Everything you said about [withdrawing some troops from] Iraq yesterday, and everything you will say, is a deception, for the purpose of this one cynical, unacceptable, brutal goal: perpetuating this war indefinitely. War today, war tomorrow, war forever!…A man with any self respect, having inadvertently revealed such an evil secret, would have already resigned and fled the country! You have no remaining credibility about Iraq, sir!…Mr. Bush, our presence in Iraq must end, even if it means your resignation, even if it means your impeachment, even if it means a different Republican to serve out your term, even if it means a Democratic Congress and those true patriots among the Republicans standing up and denying you another penny for Iraq, other than for the safety and safe conduct home of our troops. This country cannot run the risk of what you can still do to this country in the next 500 days.”

I’m not a Liberal, I’m “Correct”

“I’ve been accused of being a liberal, which is interesting because the last time I was on doing the news in the late ’90’s, I did 218 consecutive shows about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky, and no one accused me of being a liberal then. It’s very interesting to way you can be sort of pigeonholed. I like to think of myself politically as ‘correct’…I don’t have a rooting interest other than in what happens to the country.”

George Bush “selling out” America

“The premise of a President who comes across as a compulsive liar is nothing less than terrifying…Mr. President…you want to preserve one political party’s power. And obviously you will sell this country out to do it.”

Is Fox’s 24 “naked brainwashing”?

“Is 24 propaganda? Is it fearmongering? Or is it a program-length commercial for one political party?…if…networks should be boycotted for nudity or for immorality, shouldn’t those same groups be saying 24 should be taken off of TV because it’s naked brainwashing?”
