Must see Olbermann today

Here it is, latest on Bush's authoritarian power grab in the wake of the passage of the Military Commissions Act of 2006. He has no idea what damage he's doing to the great American judicial system. He's oblivious.

Bush has the power to declare Americans enemy combatants, unilaterally. Hear that? Do you trust this pathetic specimen's judgment after his disastrous choice of going to war in Iraq and his divisive rule, using religion and patriotism as wedges in American politics? With a consistently poor approval rating, less than majority support, his ability to obtain such powers is just incomprehensible.

Jonathan Turley, George Washington University Constitutional Law professor on this Act: "The Congress just gave the President despotic powers and you could hear the yawn across the country as people turned to, you know, Dancing with the Stars. It's other worldly."
