MSNBC Countdown w/ KEITH OLBERMANN - Dec. 5, 2008: Bush polishing his legacy. Discussion with Christopher Hayes of The Nation.

Keith: "The rate of women being killed in Basra right now for the so-called honor offense against their family has risen 70 percent in the last year and as we know Mr. Bush sacrificed 4,200 Americans to swap a contained dictator for this fractured democratic theocracy that's friendly to Iran, and we're supposed to say 'yeah, ok, those are reasons to go through all this the last seven years?'"

Chris Hayes: "...and we should also add that the amount of civilian casualties in Iraq since the war started is anywhere between 150,000 to as many as over a million... tremendous, tremendous mass of human suffering and death that has come in the wake of our actions there. And I still think that, not only the Bush administration, but in some respects, the entire country, still hasn't quite looked that in the face, I mean, what exactly is the legacy of what we've done there is, and we're not gonna get that kind of reconciliation or that kind of catharsis from Bush, it's clear, but we're going to have to do something as a culture, I think, and as a polity, going forward to really wrestle with happened there."

1. Saw it at funnyordie.com ...
There is obviously material for a 2-hour production.

Maybe this should be a good way to bring the point across, instead of pointing fingers.

3. You've GOT to be fucking kidding!
At what point can we point fingers? I'm so fucking tired of hearing the Republicans saying we can't "play the blame" game, when that's ALL they ever do. And they don't bother pointing the finger at themselves, for their OWN fuck ups, it's always someone ELSE'S fault.

No, it's time to point fingers. It's time to put these fuckers in prison.

2. 22% still approve of the job Bush is doing.
And that's why the killer robots will win.
