Olbermann: Torture + Rush; Maddow + Craig + Worst (videos)

Here we go boys and girls. It’s tort… Here we go boys and girls. It’s torture, torture, torture in this first segment of tonights Countdown Show.

Our government denies doing it, said we didn’t do it, then the truth wills out as usual of course and we find out we did even more torture than most people thought we did, that Bush and Fredo lied about it even more. In the first half of this segment John Dean joins Keith to discuss justifying torture in the DEPARTMENT OF JUST US.

Part two of Keith’s opening segment on torture and the Bush administration. Is there anything at all that can be done to stop the outlaw Bush administration? Neal Katval, who was the lead counsel in the case of Hamdam vs. Rumsfeld in which he won an appeal to the Supreme Court, stops by to discuss.

Hell no! I won’t go! Is that an old anti-war protest? Nope. It’s the new motto of Senator Larry Craig who after a judge refused to overturn his conviction, decided he’d hang around for a couple of more years after all. Larry Craig is the gift that keeps on giving. Chris Cillizza from the Washington Post joins Keith.

In this segment, Keith and Rachael show how Rush continues to change the facts so that his listeners won’t be disturbed by what the truth is. To be a Rush listener, you have to believe that everything Rush says is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. In reality, it is generally everything but the truth.

No matter how much evidence you have to the contrary, a Rush Limbaugh dumbohead will ignore all the facts because those facts would interfere with their Limbaugh Radio Utopia type world they live in.

As Keith and Rachael Maddow point out those listeners who tune in to Limbaugh, need the big lie to justify themselves. Don’t ever expect them to want the truth. It is pointless to argue with them, to discuss anything with them, when two words are missing from their vocabulary – facts and reality.

Another example today: Rush invites votevets to buy an ad on his show so that his listeners will think he is being fair. Meanwhile, what he doesn’t tell his listeners but already knows is that his station bosses have already nixed that idea. Therefore, they can go away still believing in the fairness of all things that happen in Fatsoland.

It is the same reason why they will only accept Rush’s edited account of what he said on his program in regards to phony soldiers and Army Staff Sgt. Brian Mcgough. For them, the edited version with a minute and thirty five seconds cut out is the real account, no matter how many times you play what actually went out over the air waves. Then again, I imagine that there are still people who really do believe that Nixon’s Secretary Rosemary Woods really did accidentally erase those tapes.

It is the same principle regarding what Limpbottom has said in regard to phony soldiers and Army Staff Sgt. Brian Mcgough. No matter how many times you confront them with the original complete broadcast, the only truth they will accept is the Limbaugh edited version, which changes the context of what he really said.

Olbermann: Blackwater + John Edwards + Rush + Worst Person + (videos)

In Keith Olbermann’s opening segment the first State Dept. report on the shooting of Iraq civilian by Blackwater employees was written by…..a Blackwater employee. The FBI agents who were supposed to investigate Blackwater were supposed to be protected by none other than…Blackwater. That has been called off. Of course, a Republican says we should just call off the investigation and let Blackwater be on it’s way.

Keith interviews Presidential Candidate John Edwards, who says we should get rid of the private contractors like Blackwater. And the best way to do that is to get our troops out of Iraq.

This segment starts rather abruptly as you will see. This was caused by a commercial that ran long. I hate it when that happens, don’t you? At any rate, this has to do whether the new Attorney General will be more cooperative than the old one. You remember Fredo don’t you? Dana Milbank guests.

Another Republican decides to retire rather than face the music.

A parking meter thief? Didn’t that guy ever see Cool Hand Luke?
Included is the Best Person in the World segment.

More on Rush Limbaugh trying to cover up his “phony soldier” comments. He then called a soldier who did the Vote Vets Ad (you can see it on my blog at http://www.clydestuff.blogspot.com) a “Suicide Bomber.” And instead of just owning up to it and admitting to what he said, Rush Limpbutt doctored and edited the tapes from the program to make it appear he didn’t quite say it the way he meant it.

In fact, the soldier that Rush Limbaugh called a phony soldier and suicide bomber, was seriously injured by a real suicide bomber. The fact that there are people in this country out there defending Rush Lardass tells you how far this country has sunk into a state where all politics trump decency. Keith interviews retired Army Staff Sgt. Brian Mcgough. As far as I’m concerned, anybody who supports Rush Lardass has totally lost their moral compass.
