Keith Olbermann took on Donald Rumsfeld last week over a speech he gave. Tonight he took on the President. Crooks and Liars has the video. The full transcript is after the jump. Predictably, Olbermann Watch took a dim view of the whole thing…

Stop the tivo! Where in the wide world of sports did George Bush link compare Al Qaeda propaganda to American reporters, despite the amount of evidence Krazy Keith gives him each night? Don’t bother reading the text of the speech. He made no such link–Olby just made it up! Merely use the word “media” and Herr Olbermann decides its a secret attack on Katie Couric. And what’s with Olby impugning the President’s patriotism? Tonight’s comment certainly was “special”. It had a loony, nonsensical, preposterous, over the top irrationality that is special to no one other than the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann.
Even then he wasn’t through. He continued to lecture “Mister” Bush about references to Nazis (physician, heal thyself), and issued a stern warning to the “easily manipulated” American populace. And as the capper, the obligatory Joe McCarthy reference: “Have you no sense of decency, sir?”
