Updated: TRANSCRIPT PENDING
Guest: Howard Fineman
OLBYWATCH GUIDE: It was your run of the mill KO show, with the obligatory slams on the GOP, the War in Iraq, and Michael Jackson. The best clip was of the astounding woman in Asia somewhere suckling two baby tigers on her breasts.
The show started with the Bolton story, and featured Howard Fineman as commentator from Newsweek. KO ran clips of George Voinovich stating that if Bolton were in a corporation, he would be fired. No mention of the fact that Voinovich would also be fired if he worked for a corporation for running afoul of the FAA when he started screaming at the Air Traffic controllers for not letting him take off when the airport was momentarily shut down due to Air Force One flying overhead. Voinovich said he was going to take off anyway and dared them to shoot him down, for which he was ultimately fined and let go. Far worse than Bolton ever did, at least Bolton had a policy reason for his outbursts. Oh, and then there was the story about the Secret Service having to break in to then President Clintons hotel room to protect him from an enraged and screaming Hillary.
But hypocrisy by Senate Democrats won't find a voice on this show, when Fineman stated that Democrats are looking for blood wherever they can find it, KO quickly interjected, "but this was Republicans looking for blood", referring to Voinovich. Yeah right, it is the Republicans that are doing all this, not the Democrats.
