Olbermann writing for DailyKos:
Thus, as I phrased it on the air tonight, obviously Obama kicked the left in the teeth by supporting the bill. But anybody who got as hot about this as I did would prefer to see a President Obama prosecuting the telecoms criminally, instead of seeing a Senator Obama engender more “soft on terror” crap by casting a token vote in favor of civil litigation that isn’t going to pass since so many other Democrats caved anyway.
Yep. That’s exactly right.
UPDATE: Greenwald responds to Olbermann. The times they are a’changing. I’ll be writing more about the changing blog/commentary dynamics soon.
