Propaganda must be hard work - anyone else notice news takes the weekend off on MSNBC these days?

Olbermann is probably the #1 reason MSNBC is slowly but surely turning into SPIKE TV.

The logic of KO: I hate what you say so therefore what you say is an incitement to violence.

The guy's a total schill. KO and Rush Limbaugh could trade notes and offer each other suggestions on how to rattle their fans cages and stir them up. Keep them incensed and distracted while you cash your paycheck and laugh at them.

I usually don't agree with KO. I think he is right on this one. What Sarah Palin said had no basis in reality. It would have been like saying, "Bush helped the terrorists on 9/11", or something to that effect.

I believe that Politicians should start being held liable for what they say about another Politician from now on. I'm tired of the swift boat attacks, the kenyan birth certificate BS, and now the death panel comment.

Its ridiculous, and I'm all for public debate. Debate is a good thing, inciting anger and hysteria isn't leadership, its mob mentality.

Keith does it again. I'm not entirely convinced that there's a racial component to this entire debacle, but Keith sums it all up very well, as usual.

Lee Atwater is still very much alive and well in American politics. The LBJ Daisy ad is childs play these days.

What Keith is saying makes sense. I don't know why the right is always so quick to dismiss him. You may not agree with him politically, and that's fine, but what he was saying, is instead of inciting unwarranted fear and violence, through blatant lies, let's have a civil discussion, like adults. Palin, Beck, and Limbaugh along with countless others are responsible.





Pictures like these aren't funny, especially with the history of this country in lynching innocent people.

KO was right on last night. Sarah needs to stop and think before speaking.

What an idiot this hussein obama shill is. In liberal Oregon we already see the choice for one woman was death of health care. As for calling for violence it was our very dear leader calling for violence and he got it from his union thugs.

Most of the violence and property damage and threats come from the left.

We can see by his jack-azz why he can only attract the left wing fringe to watch his program.
