Olbermann Offers "Special Comment" On Joe Wilson: You've "Embarrassed The Nation" (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

On "Countdown" tonight host Keith Olbermann offered a "Special Comment" about Republican Congressman Joe Wilson yelling out "you lie" during President Obama's speech last night to a joint session of Congress. Olbermann concludes that the only thing more offensive and embarrassing than the lack of civility Wilson displayed in "shouting at the President like he was a referee at a ball game and you were a drunk in the stands," is that Wilson was glaringly wrong in a comment that has "embarrassed the nation."

Olbermann digs deeper to uncover Wilson's sometimes tumultuous relationship with the truth.
