Mission Accomplished

If the point of Rummy’s foray into Harry Turtledove‘s most familiar genre was to annoy people, he definitely succeeded.

Watertiger was the earliest mention I saw, but Steve Bates was only a quarter of hour after her in posting and the swarm has been building ever since. Poputonian notes that The Other Media Ain’t Buyin’ It Either.

Keith Olbermann’s piece, Feeling morally, intellectually confused?, is highlighted, but you would be better off seeing the video at Crooks and Liars, as MSNBC requires using the 6-megaton version of IEb [Incompetently Executed browser].

This is what happens when you try to run government like a business: management believes that everything can be solved by marketing. Maybe the focus groups loved it, but the “clients” aren’t buying it.

…I won’t mince words; Olbermann was just simply stunning. There was such an elegant erudition to his outrage and an understated but riveting passion that we can only dream of seeing in those elected leaders who should be making the same point on every television screen in America. I don’t always make it all the way to the end of “Countdown” (have to get up early in the a.m.), but this kept me up and I almost cheered when he was done…

He did what the media is supposed to do: call those in power on their stupidity. The images were a nice touch, but the words were what counted. For Rumsfeld to have made that speech in front of veterans is even more insulting.

Oh, your buddy, Burns, stepped in it again. According to him, cab drivers are terrorists when they are off the meter.
