olbermann on gop fearmongering

from crooks & liars: Keith issued arguably his most powerful Special Comment yet tonight. This time he takes on the GOP’s newest fearmongering ad which quotes Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri superimposed over pictures of explosions with the sound of a ticking bomb in the background. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s topped off with the cryptic message echoing LBJ’s 1964 “Daisy” ad that ran just once: These are the stakes.

In my opinion, the most important point Keith makes concerns the recent uproar over the video CNN showed this week of a sniper attack on US troops in Iraq. House Armed Services Chairman Duncan Hunter and Congressman Brian Bilbray have come out strong against it calling it a “terrorist snuff film” yet they seem to have no problem with a RNC ad which is really nothing short of a terrorist propaganda film itself.
