Have You No Sense of Decency, Sir?

Keith Olbermann at MSNBC has got our back again.  Last night he responded to another one of Bush's 9/11 speeches, this one from yesterday morning.  Olbermann stands up to Bush's attack on the media in which Bush slyly discusses a purported letter from Osama bin Laden threatening to put a media wedge between the American people and its government. 

Olbermann says:

The President and his colleagues have led us before to such waters.  We will not drink again.

Then he ends with the famous question put to Senator Joseph McCarty by Special Counsel to the Army, Joseph Welch, in 1954 during the height of the McCarthy hearings.  "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"  How appropriate.  Take a look.
