I'm a huge fan of Rachel Maddow. I'm (still) a huge fan of Keith Olbermann. But someone else of whom I am a fan hasn't got enough love on this LJ, and that's Lawrence O'Donnell. Eloquent, heartfelt, a little bit vicious. Perhaps not quite as erudite as Keith, nor as personable as Rachel (how does
she remain so calm and friendly in the face of some of the bullshit she gets?), O'Donnell is every bit as competent and passionate about the news and how it affects us all.Click here for O'Donnell's amazing takedown of Mitt Rmoney's claptrap on civil rights
. It's about eight-and-a-half minutes, and very much worth your time.
ETA: For those who want a transcript -- if you mouse-over the bottom of the video, you'll see "transcript". Click that, and it'll pop up to the left of the vid.This entry was originally posted at http://filkertom.dreamwidth.org/1525448.html.
