An Empire Built on Lies

A tipping point, perhaps?

The MSM - albeit in a news site blog - is finally saying what the blogosphere has been saying for years. Keith Olbermann, on MSNBC, has written what may be the defining piece of journalism of this administration. It will be roundly savaged or dismissed by the most fundamentalist right and accepted with vigorous head nodding by most of the left. But it's the reaction of the unmoved masses in the middle that may well be it's most important effect. If they read it...

A teaser, but really, you have to read the whole thing:

Mr. President, these new lies go to the heart of what it is that you truly wish to preserve.

It is not our freedom, nor our country—your actions against the Constitution give irrefutable proof of that.

You want to preserve a political party’s power. And obviously you’ll sell this country out, to do it.
This is a powerful piece and deserves wide dissemination. Pass it on.

Hat tip to the commentors at AmericaBlog for pointing me to this.
