It's fast becoming fashionable for the talking heads on the mainstream news to criticize the many blunders of the Bush administration. Long before it was popular however, Keith Olbermann was out there crying foul over the abuses of the Constitution and Habeas Corpus. Standing almost alone in pointing out the wholesale destruction of the Constitution, the very cornerstone of our society, by the Bushies, with his 'special comments' Olbermann seemed almost Murrowesque. In light of this heroic stance, it seems strange that Keith has not had Congressman Ron Paul, the undisputed Champion of the Constitution on his show. In fact, as the only person in congress who stands by his Oath of Office to uphold the Constitution and consistently votes against any law which is unconstitutional, Ron Paul's absence from Countdown with Keith Olbermann seems a glaring injustice and may be seen by some as a spotlight on partisanship. I hope this is not the case.
I'll ask that everyone send a polite note to the show, requesting that they invite Congressman Ron Paul to appear. The e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The show also has a blog here: The News Hole which allows comments. Again, please keep it polite and on topic.
I think if we get these two stalwart defenders of the Constitution together, we'll hear a very frank and honest discussion on the dangerous course that the neocons have steered this country and what needs to be done to set things right.
If anyone can make this happen, its the Ron Paul Army.
