Olbermann and the need for real reform
And so those meeting Thursday morning really need to think and start acting. No more blocking any reform. No more one sided deals to industries. No more talk of just coming back to it another year.
We, WE the people, need reform. We need to cut through the bull and spin. And this falls on the media as well. Olbermann and Maddow can't take the brunt of this work. People like Blitzer and the other anchors need to stop be disinterested brokers of data shunts. Be damn journalist.

Daily Kos Diary entry from Olbermann on Special Comment
I just wanted add a thought as I have thought of the loathsome posturing of Rep. Boehner (the Boner). All along he has played a role as a Panto villain. The HCR bills are TOO LONG, then TOO SHORT. He wanted media coverage, then the media coverage is all a trap for him. He is a joke, a self made one. And now, as a meeting he demanded and is welcomed at looms...what does he say? "I'm going to crash the party."
It's his fucking meeting, and he is going to go all rogue on it? In advance, with a presser for the media? What crap.
People are dying, suffering, and being made to feel afraid. And all he can think of is, "It's showtime." Man loves his little hand mirror. And he will bring about a great deal of suffering to this country in the hope of bolstering himself.
It's fucking shameless.
