the nexus of politics & terror...

i highly, highly recommend this keith olbermann piece* to anyone who is interested in how the bush administration has used fear & loathing to dominate the political landscape for the last seven years, especially given that the mccain campaign/ republicans in general are offering nothing so far but more of the same.

mark my words: every time you hear pejorative references to "president b. hussein osama," a "muslim sleeper" who "attended madrassas in indonesia," "wants to play basketball with the castro brothers," and "bomb pakistan"... everytime you pay it any mind, save for throwing up a little in your mouth, another piece of america dies.

*a head's- up: the piece is seventeen minutes long.
