Keith Olbermann’s tipping point came on a tarmac in Los Angeles six weeks ago. While waiting for his plane to take off he read an account of Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld’s speech before the American Legion equating Iraq War opponents to pre-World War II appeasers.

The next night, on Aug. 30, Olbermann ended his MSNBC “Countdown” show with a blistering retort, questioning both the interpretation of history and Rumsfeld’s very understanding of what it means to be an American.

It was the first of now five extraordinarily harsh anti-Bush commentaries that have made Olbermann the latest media point-person in the nation’s political divide.

Keith’s “Comment”  series has rocketed through the blog world and You Tube plus the MSNBC  “Countdown” site has the videos of all his “Comments” so far
