Olbermann calls out McCain.

Olbermann is on top form here.

Senator McCain, your supporters, at your events, are calling Obama a terrorist and traitor and are calling for him to be killed. And yet you keep bringing back these same rabid Right Wing nuts to deliberately stir these crowds into frenzies. And then you take offense when somebody who remembers the violence in our political past, calls you on it. You, sir, are responsible for a phalanx of individuals who are shouting fire in a crowded theatre. There are some things to respect and honor about you, Senator McCain. But on this, you're not only a fraud, Senator but you are tacitly inciting lunatics to violence. If you want to again grand-stand and suspend your campaign here's your big chance. Suspend your campaign now, until you, or somebody else, gets some control over it and it ceases to be a clear and present danger to the peace of this nation.
That McCain can attempt to make himself out to be the victim here is simply disgusting. McCain and Palin are playing with fire. And even if Palin is too inexperienced to fully comprehend what she is being asked to take part in, McCain has no such excuse. He knows better. But desperation is causing him to torch what is left of his reputation in an attempt to win.

He'll be a shell of his former self by the time all this is over.

Help stop the hate - here are three things you can do to make a difference right now:

1. Sign the petition to end incitement of hatred and violence by McCain/Palin.

2. Write your Congressperson about it.

3. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper.

And spread the word!

Thanks for providing those links AC.

Will, when Olbermann rants, he rants better than anyone else I know.
