Olbermann's latest hypocritical rant

Olbermann is the Beck he envisions. What a hypocritical nutcase!!! I hate to resort to name calling but Olbermann slips so easily into a rant and cannot fathom that alternate opinion being anything but absurd.

Oh really? Oh really? What about this you hypocritical monster?

If someone had seen this and taken a shot at Bush, would you claim responsibility? Honestly?Your sheer one-sidedness is a danger for America. Beck at least would recognize your right to be obtuse, not so you Keith. You are a ranting fascist, and you don't even realize it.

Bonus question: would you have granted habeas corpus to a member of Hitler's SS? Those prosecuted at the Nuremburg trials weren't granted habeas corpus.

Obama, a former senior lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School, cited "that
principle of habeas corpus, that a state can't just hold you for any reason without charging you and without giving you any kind of due process -- that’s the essence of who we are. I mean, you remember during the Nuremberg trials, part of what made us different was even after these Nazis had performed atrocities that no one had ever seen before, we still gave them a day in court and that taught the entire world about who we are but also the basic principles of rule of law. Now the Supreme Court upheld that principle yesterday."

(Though Obama was clearly referring to the principle of giving criminals a day in court, it's worth pointing out the distinction here, that the Nuremberg trials did not give Nazi war criminals access to U.S. courts, but to a special international military tribunal created by the U.S., USSR, France and the U.K. Though Nuremberg currently is considered a model for international law, it's not as if Rudolph Hess had access to challenge his detention in U.S. federal court.)

Looks like your idol got that one wrong too. And your eagerness to implicate beck kinda indicates your willingness to throw it out the window when it comes to pointing fingers.

Hypocrite. Hypocrite. Hypocrite.
