Olbermann Nails Nexus Of Politics And Terror

If you didn't see it tonight on MSNBC's Countdown, Keith Olbermann nailed the Bush White House right between the eyes for their tendency to try to distract Americans with terror alerts whenever bad news for Team Bush arises.

Of course, Crooks and Liars has the video up already and you can also read a detailed account of the Bad News/Terror Alert correlation at Olbermann's blog.

Meantime, I threw together a handy chart that shows the date the White House got pieces of bad news and their rapid response with a terror alert or warning.

What an astounding coincidence!
