Keith Olbermann's Worse Person in the World...

If you haven't seen them, you should. Keith is amazing, he's funny, serious and spot on with his criticism of what's going on in this country.

His latest points to Wal-Mart for suing a woman, injured in a car crash, whose brain damage is so severe that everytime she asks about her son, who died in Iraq a week after her accident, it's as if she's learning it for the very first time. I mean really Wal-Mart, let it go, even if she had robbed you at gun point, just let it go.

Then he blasts Senator Lindsey Graham for saying that McCain never said that the Iraq war would be easy, except he has, repeatedly.

But the one that really got me, the one that made me nearly spray soda on my keyboard...

DHS agents monitoring a stretch of highway recently had a nuclear alert when a sensor went off indicating radiation in a car traveling 70 miles per hour. Pretty scary stuff right? Thank gods they are watching right? Maybe

Turns out when they pulled the car over (and I'm just betting that was a fun time for the drivers) the radiation came from a CAT that had being treated for a tumor three days earlier. (This is the point at which I started laughing.)

Where Keith puts it back in perspective for me, is when he points out that if we have monitors sensitive enough to locate a sick kitty, WTF does Bush and Skelator get off trying to scare us to death that we're completely defenseless unless we're all wiretapped and watch listed and what have you?

Here's a link, watch it if you're as pissed off as I was, the cat part might just mellow you out a bit.

Here's a link to Keith's report

and if you're intested in helping Debbie Shank out

Contact your local Bank Of America, they should be able to accept donations to "The Debbie Shank Fund.", if not they can contact their branches in Jackson Missouri to get the information.

Last option, send a check or money order to :

Bank of America
320 W. Main
Jackson, MO 63755
c/o "The Debbie Shank Fund"
Phone:  573.339.6500

(I say last option because it's kind of late and I haven't had a chance to verify it myself, but you're all too smart to send money without checking it out first, right?)

Also it wouldn't hurt to write a letter to Wal-Mart expressing your disappointment in their actions.

I knew you were!

Thanks for following my semi-rant
