Television is quite often a river of crap. But every once in a while we get a glimpse of what TV could be.
Keith Olbermann put on one of the most powerful hours of television I have ever seen last night. If you haven't seen it, you should see it.
Our president has a reputation as a great orator, but he has not crystallized the basics of why health care is a universal right that any caring nation must provide like Keith did.
The basic human issues are so simple, yet we allow the debate and the policy to be hijacked by pimps and their bodyguards who do not add one single drop of actual care--they just manipulate prices and take larger and larger cuts while excluding more and more people from care. We have the ability as people to deliver fantastic care without bankrupting people. We have the ability. What we do not have is the will.
Watch Keith. He says it so much better than I can.
