I don't want to get into the habit of putting up youtube videos anytime I don't have something to blog about. And I actually do have something written about the latest census number, but then Ed went and wrote something that's better than what I have. So it's either scrap it or back to the drawing board on it. We'll see.
But I've had this video going through my mind for several days now. It aired about a week or so ago, so it's made the rounds. Some of you may have even seen it already. All I know is that it is a remarable piece of commentary. A finely constructed piece of rage, but yet never spinning out of control into the realm of frothing out the mouth. Keith Olberman, a reporter with MSNBC, is furious, but at least takes the time to bring out facts, present arguments and states them with passion.
As a writer, I was impressed. Yes, I don't like Bush. Any pretense of trying to see both sides of the argument of the Bush presidency is out the window for me. Only the most partisan can few his presidency as something positive for the United States. But it really is a great bit of writing and arguing by Olberman. I haven't seen something this good in quite some time, especially on U.S. television. It's a shock to the system.
I think Hunter S. Thompson would be proud. And that's meant as a compliment.
