olbermann on apologizing


Part One


Part Two


Once again, Countdown's Keith Olbermann is right on target with his latest special comment, regarding Senator John Kerry's recent botched attempt at humor & the media firestorm that has blown it all out of proportion. John Amato's Crooks & Liars has the video as-per-usual, just as it did last week for Keith's previous special comment, on the GOP's advertising terrorism during this campaign season. KO fans might want to check in Sunday (or is it Friday?) for week two of Firedoglake's Book Salon, where the MSNBC anchor will be joining in to discuss his book The Worst Person in the World (based on the regular Countdown segment).

And on Tuesday, be sure to vote. Need a reason? Read Matt Taibbi.

MP3 Hüsker Dü - "I Apologize"
From local legends Hüsker Dü's 1985 album New Day Rising.

MP3 Gram Rabbit - "Sorry"
From Gram Rabbit's latest release, Cultivation.

MP3 Billy Bragg & Wilco - "Christ For President"
From 1998's Billy Bragg/Wilco collaboration, Mermaid Avenue (Vol 1).

BTW: Didya know Billy Bragg has a blog? And doncha just love alliteration?

Before yesterday's statement of apology to any military personnel or their families that might have misundterstood the Senator's comments (after being amplified & distorted through the right wing noise machine), Kerry gave a gutsy, more in-your-face response to the media on Tuesday that actually made me proud to have voted for the man in 2004. In case you missed it:



On an actual humorous note, zefrank chastised Kerry yesterday for botching such an easy joke, and possibly calls him somebody a "stupid chicken" in the process. Or something like that. It made sense when I watched it, anyway.

matt-

chill. if you actually go & watch ze's show, you would see that the "stupid chicken" comment i made was with tongue firmly planted in cheek, and perhaps you would also get the funny.

seriously, relax. thanks.

I believe New Day Rising was released in 1985. Husker Du broke up in 1987.

Cheers!
