Lawrence O'Donnell loses it at Marc Thiessen.

I actually had a better title in mind, but it’s too earthy for RedState. Anyway, watch this fascinating exercise in ‘speaking truth to power’ towards Marc Thiessen by O’Donnell:

If you conclude from that clip that ‘speaking truth to power’ is more or less equivalent to ‘throwing… feces’ [more earthy language, sorry] – well, you could be forgiven for that, given the evidence. Ed Morrissey calls it an ‘unhinged rant‘ – which I don’t agree with; speaking as a ranter myself, it’s not up to even minimal rhetorical standards – and wonders whether Joe Scarborough has had enough of this… there we go with the earthy language, again. O’Donnell has a genius for turning stuff into that sort of thing, it seems.

PS: I haven’t actually read Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack, but if it’s getting this kind of incoherent primate screeching in response then there must be something to it.
