Olbermann's Special Comment on Waterboarding  
If you're on my friends list, you've already seen this - but I think that it's something that everyone needs to see (not just because I adore the man) because this is a very, very valid point.

Daniel Levin took himself to a military base and let himself be waterboarded.

Mr. Bush, ever done anything that personally courageous?

Perhaps when you've gone to Walter Reed and teared up over the maimed servicemen? And then gone back to the White House and determined that there would be more maimed servicemen?

Has it been that kind of personal courage, Mr. Bush, when you've spoken of American victims and the triumph of freedom and the sacrifice of your own popularity for the sake of our safety? And then permitted others to fire or discredit or destroy anybody who disagreed with you, whether they were your own generals, or Max Cleland, or Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame, or Daniel Levin?

Daniel Levin should have a statue in his honor in Washington right now.

Full transcript here.

I know that a lot of folks don't like Olbermann's style, and I can understand that. I know that a lot of times, he comes off as a liberal pundit, if you will, and that puts people off. But, even if you don't like him, I encourage you to watch this video.
