Olberman Pontificates

Keith Olbermann last night (excerpts):
"The man who sees absolutes, where all other men see nuances and shadesof meaning, is either a prophet, or a quack.
Donald S. Rumsfeld is not a prophet.

And he quotes Edward R Murrow:

'We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty," he said, in 1954.
"We must remember always that accusation is not proof, and that conviction depends upon evidence and due process of law.
"We will not walk in fear - one, of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of un-reason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men;
"Not from men who feared to write, to speak, to associate, and to defend causes that were - for the moment - unpopular.'
