Yo Democrats, you were elected to get us out of Iraq

In the most scathing "special comment" I have yet seen, Olbermann denounces the Democrats for caving compltetely to Bush, despite the extremely clear mandate they received in Nov. 2006. And he excoriates Bush for taking our troops hostage to enhance his power in the political game of chicken he's playing with the Democrats. His sense of outrage and disgust mirrors what I feel exactly.

The Democratic leadership has, in sum, claimed a compromise with the Administration, in which the only things truly compromised are the trust of the voters, the ethics of the Democrats, and the lives of our brave, and doomed, friends, and family, in Iraq.

You, the men and women elected with the simplest of directions - Stop The War - have traded your strength, your bargaining position, and the uniform support of those who elected you… for a handful of magic beans.
