Olbermann on the strays of Sochi

Here, better than any ski jumper, snowboarder, or twizzling ice skater, Keith Olbermann nails it.

His take on the stray dogs being captured and killed at the Olympics in Sochi —¬† at the same time that pampered pooches are on parade at the Westminster Kennel Club dog show in New York — ¬†provides some contrast, some context, and shows lots of conviction.

Who is really the biological trash, he asks — the dogs being exterminated, or the exterminators?

I will NOT be watching any Olympics broadcast specifically because of this inhuman madness.
the human race seems to descend further into soulless barbarity with each passing year, society is unraveling at the seams. Have a dog problem? just kill ’em, it’s quick and easy and painless (to the humans anyway). Once again, let’s take the expeditious way out, instead of the thoughtful, and kind way. Completely disgusting. George Bush looked into this man’s (Putin) soul and saw .., what?

I’ve never before agreed with anything Keith Olbermann has to say, but his commentary on the carnage in Sochi was spot on. Kudos to him for saying what needed to be said. Now, if only Matt Lauer would get on the bandwagon!

Glad to see this story going into the mainstream. And glad to see people who don’t see eye to eye with the messenger stepping up, some things are beyond right and left, they’re simply about right and wrong.
