Olbermann Compares GOP to Preston Brooks
When Congressman Preston Brooks finally realized that Slavery was going to come to an end as a way of life in America, and that his power structure was about to collapse, he approached Senator Charles Sumner, a leading Anti-Slavery activist, on the floor of the Senate and began beating him with his cane.
Mr. Olbermann is appropriately pointing out the similarity to the attacks on Michael J Fox and Senator John Kerry this week by a GOP powerbase that rightly feels threatened.
