    I'm confused.

    What does a LBJ quote about Vietnam have to do with this clip from Olbermann?

    The invasion of Iraq and the war in Afghanistan are, well, a little different than Vietnam

    And the media landscape in '69 is another universe away from 2011.

    Enquiring minds, etc

    The problem with Afghanistan - and I think even the Bush administration realized this - is that it lacks the social infrastructure to make a military "victory" possible. There are what, a dozen Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and we're still dealing with the Taliban now, worried that they'll make a comeback and it doesn't seem likely they will be agreeing to a peace treaty anytime soon.

    They're special because he's the one making them. Just ask him.
    KO is no better than those he castigates. Watch the fury in his face, his eyes bulging, his veins popping, as he goes on a name-calling screed against those whom he believes are lowering public discourse in America.
    Mirror, Keith. Keith, mirror. Y'all ought to get know each other.
