FISA Special Comment
by Keith Olbermann

Howdy, Campers.

Well combining the intoxicating aroma of Valentine's Day, with the House Democrats' sudden spinal growth -- close business, except for pro forma activity, until February 25, thus calling the President's bluff -- has gotten me all feisty. Some of it will be uh, re-purposed, from the piece of January 31st, but I'm sticking a Special Comment in tonight's televised festival.

..........................

Barring some late editing, this'll be the conclusion.

Even in 2006 we spoke words like these with trepidation.

The idea that even the most cynical and untrustworthy of politicians in our history -- George W. Bush -- would use the literal form of terrorism against his own people -- was dangerous territory. It seemed to tempt fate, to heighten fear.

We will not fear any longer.

We will not fear the international terrorists -- we will thwart them.

We will not fear the recognition of the manipulation of our yearning for safety.

We will not fear calling out the vulgar hypocrites in our government.

We will not fear George W. Bush, nor fear because George W. Bush wants us to fear.
