Special Comment: What is "Pro-America"?

Keith Olbermann aired another special comment (transcript here), this time directed as VP nominee Sarah Palin. He asks "What is Pro-America?" in light of her suggestion (and other republicans) that essentially anyone that isn't for the Republican Party is by definition against America. That criticism of how it is run and those that run it is un-American. They don't seem to realize that these are the very ideals that America. It is Palin that is un-American to suggest that those that disagree with her don't belong or love their country. Is the Republican Party capable of running and winning without using fear and hate as a cornerstone of their campaign? For them it always comes down to an "us vs. them" argument. It doesn't see so looking at even the last 50 years of history. America and all Americans are better then that. Its too bad they don't see it.
