Why does habeas corpus hate America?

If you missed Keith Olbermann last night, go immediately to Crooks and Liars. It was spectacular.

Why does habeas corpus hate America…and how is it so bad for us?

Mr. Bush says it gets in the way of him doing his job.

[video clip]Bush: "…we cannot be able to tell the American people we're doing our full job unless we have the tools necessary to do so. And this legislation passed in the House yesterday is a part of making sure that we do have the capacity to protect you. Our most solemn job is the security of this country."

It may be solemn…

[video clip] Bush: "I do solemnly swear…"

But is that really his job? In this rarely seen footage, Mr. Bush is clearly heard describing a different job.

[video clip]…to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Countdown has obtained a copy of this "Constitution of the United States."
