Countdown With Keith Olbermann - Health Care Reform Special Comment .

Part 1.

Part 2.

Olbermann is simply brilliant here. He catches the hypocrisy of Republicans, the very people who campaign to ban abortion, the party which intervened in the Terry Schiavo case, now complaining that the government ought to get out of the way of the relationship between patients and their doctors. The sheer scale of that hypocrisy simply hadn't occurred to me until Olbermann pointed it out.

He also rounds on the Blue Dog Democrats, those pseudo progressives doing everything they can to stop the public option. As Keith says, "We do not need to call the Democrats holding this up: Blue Dogs. That one word: "Dogs" is perfectly sufficient." He goes as far as to call them, "the prostitutes of our system".

It's worth watching the entire thing.
