    Intense.

    I'm not up to date on who Olbermann is, so doing research now, but he sounded passionate and heart-felt. Amazing monologue, amazing point.

    Cheers.

    I normally cant stand anything he says, but I agree with every word of this.

    Still too little too late.

    "Permanence and happiness..." ROFL! He must be talking about some form of marriage I'm not familiar with. :lol:

    But yeah, even a broken clock is right twice a day. And Olbermann is right this time.

    you can tell he was because his throat was tightening up and sounding nervous.

    usually you can spot this in liars but hes seems pretty genuine about it

    I'm a big fan of his rants, but I'm just some stupid liberal :p

    Yeah, pretty much. He and that tool on Fox are mirror images of one another. Such polarized news coverage simply isn't necessary, and just serves to whip the drones into a furry.

    EDIT: This graphic sums it up nicely. Basically I have no respect for anyone on the fringes of the curve.

    Good points but a little too much emotion for me.

    Tone it down Kieth and stick to the point.

    I love Glenn Beck. I love all of his alcoholic jokes. His book was fun to read too (what little I read of it at a bookstore).

    The Religious Right came out heavily against Prop 8 and the other props banning gay marriage.

    i watched this the other night as i'm just as big of a fan of keith as 950 (and rachel maddow!).

    as juball said, no matter where you stand on keith he is right. he hit the nail on the head with this. he put into words so many people's feelings on the situation. i watch his show every night and this is the first "special comment" i've seen him get so choked up about. i hope people start to wake up and see how wrong Prop 8 is.
