'Countdown with Keith Olbermann' for Dec. 7
Read the transcript to the 8 p.m. ET show
Updated: 2:23 p.m. ET Dec. 8, 2004
Guest: Jim Bunning, Dave Foley
OLBYWATCH GUIDE: Keith ignored the actual news from Ohio, that Bush was certified the winner of the state's electoral vote. Instead, Olbermann proclaimed the "Ohio recount" to be "official" while noting that the Green party and the Libertarian party had yet to file their requests for a recount with Ohio's 88 county commissioners. In other words, the recount is NOT official.
Olbermann continued to emphasize how the preliminary estimate of the vote count (a 130,000 margin for Bush) differs from the certified vote count (a 119,000 margin for Bush) and how both figures are not in line with the expectations created based on the "early release" of exit poll data as if this, in and of itself, proves something. Keith continues to express certainty that the prospective recount tally will differ from the November 3rd tally in some meaningful way and to advance any proposed theory on how Bush might suddenly lose Ohio and not be inaugurated.
Olbermann went on to quote Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb who got 186 votes in Ohio (0.00%), "There is a possibility that George W. Bush did not win Ohio. If that is the case, it would be a crime against democracy for George Bush to be sworn into office.
No report tonight on what Cliff Arnebeck is not doing but there was a report on what exit pollster Warren Mitofsky is not doing - paying any attention to Rep. John Conyers (D-MI).
The Mitofsky non-story did, however, serve one purpose, providing Keith another chance to advance his tendtious link between Ohio "irregularities" and widespead, documented cases of actual vote fraud in the Ukraine.
