Perhaps Keith Olbermann’s “Special Comment” this evening (June 11) was, of the many he has made, the most poignant and most important one of all.

 

I cannot with sufficient urgency beg enough Americans to view it. But viewing it is itself insufficient. It must be thought about; every word, every sentence, every nuance. Then, it must be passed along to as many as you know.

 

Complete with attribution and videos of remarks John McCain has uttered, the subject of the “Special Comment” is the context of the already too numerous slips and slides by the senator.

 

This is not a light matter of say, merely a difference of opinions. It isn’t about a particular food I might like being one another cannot stomach. Nor is it a matter of, say painting a dining room forest green, whereas I prefer beige. No one suffers irreparable as a consequence of the differences in dining preferences or decorating tastes. Nor, if I mistakenly report that Saturn is the fifth planet in our solar system, will my error be of much importance to anyone. Life will go on . . . regardless of any of these examples.

 

But that is not true for the “John McCain context,” so provocatively enunciated by Olbermann. It is that important. Many, many others will suffer irreparable harm. They will. And after viewing it, my eyes began to mist, in sadness; in sadness for what might befall our country, my country, if an insufficient number fail to view the video, if a too sufficient number rely on the Madison Avenue marketing ads, if McCain is somehow elected to the presidency.
