Last night Keith Olbermann had quite an editorial last night. You can view it here. And You can read the transcript here. (You can also click the link on this page to see what DNC Chairman Howard Dean said about this). A quick excerpt from Keith’s editorial:
That, about which Mr. Rumsfeld is confused is simply this: This is a Democracy. Still. Sometimes just barely.
And, as such, all voices count — not just his.
Had he or his president perhaps proven any of their prior claims of omniscience â€” about Osama Bin Ladenâ€™s plans five years ago, about Saddam Husseinâ€™s weapons four years ago, about Hurricane Katrinaâ€™s impact one year ago â€” we all might be able to swallow hard, and accept their â€œomniscienceâ€ as a bearable, even useful recipe, of fact, plus ego.
But, to date, this government has proved little besides its own arrogance, and its own hubris.

Just in case you’re not sure what fascism is, I recommend reading this article by one of the best historians of our age Thom Hartmann, Reclaiming The Issues: Islamic Or Republican Fascism? It’s a great short history of what fascism is, and what “American fascism” is, as described by Vice President Henry Wallace in 1944 NYT editorial, The Danger of American Fascism.
