"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves." Thomas Jefferson

Thank You, Keith Olbermann, Once Again

Holy Crap.

His brilliance is unmatched and he is the only voice of sanity on the teevees. I really am grateful – and a little frightened about his future. We must make certain that MSNBC knows how much we appreciate Keith. It is time to flood them with emails and letters, we have to let Keith know that we have got his back.

Crooks and Liars is all over it. If just a third of all of the hundreds of commenters there would send a thank you, we could make an impact. Encourage people to do so.

In addition, I ran across this site. I will probably be adding the “atta boy” button to my site. Direct thank you’s to Keith. I am not sure where they go, but the site editor seems legit.

I will repeat what I said after his last special comment:

Keith’s special comments have become the highlight of any my television viewing. He always encapsulates my emotion and he says what he says with the passion and eloquence that I could only hope to achieve in my lifetime.

He is brilliant. The poetry of what he writes and the delivery of his speech is absolutely unmatched. I cannot thank him enough.

And so must we all.

Please write to Keith, MSNBC, the Countdown Producers, Microsoft and NBC Corporate. We must let the media know that this is what we want. We want the truth. We want people to report on the dangers to America; our civil liberties, our moral authority, our treasury, our blackened Soul.

Email addresses are:





For good measure, send a hard copy thank you letter as well:

UPDATE: Froomkin calls Olbermann "shrill". Hit the WAPo blog and let Froomkin know that Olbermann deserves respect and gratitude.
