Olbermann: The entire government has failed us

Tonight, Keith Olbermann said what has been on the minds of all of us who oppose the occupation of Iraq.  He has articulated our distress at the betrayal of our trust by the leadership of the Democrats in Congress.  Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid; no matter how much lipstick you put on this pig, it is still a pig.

SPECIAL COMMENT
By Keith Olbermann

A Special Comment about the Democrats’ deal with President Bush to continue financing this unspeakable war in Iraq—and to do so on his terms:

For the president, and the majority leaders and candidates and rank-and-file Congressmen and Senators of either party—there is only blame for this shameful, and bi-partisan, betrayal.

Few men or women elected in our history—whether executive or legislative, state or national—have been sent into office with a mandate more obvious, nor instructions more clear:

Get us out of Iraq.

Our politics… is now about the answer to one briefly-worded question.

Who among us will stop this war—this War of Lies?

To he or she, fall the figurative keys to the nation.
To all the others—presidents and majority leaders and candidates and rank-and-file Congressmen and Senators of either party—there is only blame… for this shameful, and bi-partisan, betrayal.

Good night, and good luck.
