Olbermann: Special Comment on Bush Speech [VIDEO]

Olbermann takes the scissors to Bush's speech and his apparent call for war in Iran...

Excerpt... Whole transcript after the jump. All Olbermann "Special Comments" HERE:


Our military, Mr. Bush, is already stretched so thin by this bogus adventure in Iraq that even a majority of serving personnel are willing to tell pollsters that they are dissatisfied with your prosecution of the war.

It is so weary that many of the troops you have just consigned to Iraq will be on their second tours or their third tours or their fourth tours — and now you’re going to make them take on Iran and Syria as well?
Who is left to go and fight, sir?
Who are you going to send to “interrupt the flow of support from Iran and Syria”?
Laura and Barney?
The line is from the movie “Chinatown” and I quote it often: “Middle of a drought,” the mortician chuckles, “and the water commissioner drowns. Only in L.A.!”
Middle of a debate over the lives and deaths of another 21,500 of our citizens in Iraq, and the president wants to saddle up against Iran and Syria.
