^While some of what Olbermann says is credible, in the end, it slowly becomes the "left-wing" version of Beck's "Fear Chamber" segment (which was gladly euthanized after Colbert's hilarious sendoff). Predicting the worst case scenario always makes for fun television, but it also amost always seems the least realistic. He should have simply explained the real world consequences that day-to-day people can actually connect with, not the extremes...

Still, it is better expressed and told than anything on Beck's program. This is what Rhetoric should be. Not just overzealous emotions (which Beck and others do so well), but real reasons, even if imaginative and over-the-top.
