Keith O is going to go after Rummy tonite. Big time
:)

Feeling morally, intellectually confused?

Yesterday, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld once again attacked Administration critics, asserting those questioning its Iraq and anti-terror policies are trying to appease "a new type of fascism," calling them sufferers of "moral or intellectual confusion."

Tonight, Keith Olbermann returns to Countdown with a special commentary on Rumsfelds remarks. You can catch Olbermanns full response at 8 p.m. ET on MSNBC, but heres a sneak peek:

"It demands the deep analysisand the sober contemplationof every American.

For it did not merely serve to impugn the morality or intelligence - indeed, the loyaltyof the majority of Americans who oppose the transient occupants of the highest offices in the land;

Worse, still, it credits those same transient occupants - our employeeswith a total omniscience; a total omniscience which neither common sense, nor this administrations track record at home or abroad, suggests they deserve.

Dissent and disagreement with government is the lifes blood of human freedom;

And not merely because it is the first roadblock against the kind of tyranny the men Mr. Rumsfeld likes to think of as his troops still fight, this very evening, in Iraq.

It is also essential. Because just every once in awhile it is rightand the power to which it speaks, is wrong."

9. Keith is like a thoroughbred horse ready to charge out of the gate!
Even on Dan Patrick's radio show today, he was talking about this. You could tell he could not WAIT to lay into Rummy.

Set the VCRs, TiVos and what have you. This one's gonna be a keeper.

10. Rummy pissed me off too!
Almost as bad as the time he did the hack job on the draftees during Viet nam.

Rummy should have been fired for that!
