"I will not buy this insurance. Brand me a lawbreaker if you choose. Fine me if you will. Jail me if you must."__Keith Olbermann, December 16, 2009

In his commentary Wednesday night, Keith Olbermann put forth that he'd rather be fined and be put in jail than obey the President's orders to buy health insurance from the private extortionist cartel, defiantly stating:

"I call on all those whose conscience urges them to fight, to use the only weapon that will be left to us if this bill becomes law. We must not buy federally mandated insurance if this cheesy counterfeit of reform is all we can buy."

"No single payer? No sale.

No public option? No sale.

No Medicare buy-in? No sale."

"I am one of the self-insured, albeit by choice. And I hereby pledge that I will not buy this perversion of health care reform. Pass this at your peril, Senators, and sign it at yours, Mr. President."
